that's why I brought up the duke PT thing--i didn't do it for nothing. i remember something about how apps submitted in midDec will hear back in early jan because they go on xmas break. that might've already happened w/ cls.

where is all the acrimony coming from


I don't think it's against you directly - it's just that your tone sometimes comes across as a bit aloof in the threads :)

(I remember a long ago drunken outburst when I took your tone that way! lols)

What did he say


I was being optimistic over in the HLS thread about my JS2 chances and expressing how much I would love to get one Monday (half in jest) even though I know it's definitely less than 50/50 shot, and here is an excerpt of the PM:

how are you so confident in your ability to get a JS2 at any time, let alone this Monday? I'm not doubting you--i have no idea what your chances are. but you said yo were 3.6/173 with non-spectacular softs, and I doubt one can make up that much ground in an interview.


ETA: It's not so much the point of the PM, which is a logical question (I guess). It's just (a) the tone, and (b) why even send it? What's the point?

lucky - that was a total dick comment. seriously.

and LS22 - I don't think it's out of reason for you to get a JS2 (in fact I think it's highly likely!!!)

I think there will be a batch of decisions released today. I have no basis for this, but I just like, feel it.

(Note: times when my "feeling" predictions have been incorrect: December 2012 LSAT release date, October 2013 LSAT release date, 2013 Harvard JS2 dates... I really have no business predicting anything.)

You already questioned me via PM on why I thought I was fortunate enough to get a JS1 with my numbers, and I took the time to explain it. My response on why I felt I had a shot at a JS2 was likely to be the same. It's fine to ask, I just don't know why you have to do it in the manner that you do.

Maybe you don't realize how you come across, but if that's the case you really want to work on it, because you won't have much success in this (or any modern) profession. Being able to communicate electronically in a way that does not offend people is an extremely important skill to have when you start working full time.

I'm bringing this thread back on topic before it gets moved to the lounge.


Question: How many of you would take Columbia with $$$ over HYS?

Hello everyone! I don't frequent this site much so forgive me if I'm asking a stupid question.

I got a new job recently (since I submitted my app) and was wondering if it was okay to send columbia an updated resume. Harvard and Stanford encourage people to do so but I see nothing on Columbia's website besides a letter of continued interest (which I wouldn't send unless I got wait listed).

Anyone know? Would they be annoyed?

Depends how much $$ we are talking. I still have some non-big law aspirations so it would take a fairly large sum to steer me away from HLS. I can't be sure unless it were real, but I know for sure it would have to be greater than 50%. Probably more like 75%+ which is unlikely for me.

You can call their office and ask, but I'm sure they'd want to see an updated resume
