I would just print the email to PDF and attach it. Unless the offer you're meaning to use was given to you another way than email.

yeah i figured it was this easy, just didnt want to do anything to make myself look stupid :lol:

Does anyone have an opinion on including T10 acceptances as a form of negotiation, as well as $$ to high ranked schools?

No personal experience, but there are a lot of people with better offers from higher ranked schools who will be turning down Wash U, so I wouldn't lose all hope.

Did you request one? I've heard from current 2Ls that as long as you give a concrete reason for needing one, WashU is pretty willing to give them.

Just save your email offers into a PDF and then send it over. FWIW, I just took screenshots of the offers I had received and sent those over as PNGs and didn't have any problems.

Might just be my experience, but I've been surprised by how anti-WUSTL tls seems to be. Why do you guys think that is? Just because its a reach for people who wanna be T20 and a safety for people who want T14? Or its geographic location?

I dont think anyone really argues the quality of the school. Its just not really regarded well among firms. Doesn't really feed a major market as well as UT14/UCLA/Vandy/GeorgeTTTown

edit: Stupid 0L that just spends too much time on this forum. YMMV

I think that is definitely part of it. It is right on the edge between regional and super-regional schools.

Yeah I definitely get the problem with it's market. But I've talked to graduates of Georgetown and Harvard, both now working big law, and neither believed it was a serious concern. They both claimed WashU was highly respected by firms. I feel like the only problem with WashU is that you have to work a little harder to get in specific markets, but no law school really guarantees you'll be set for life just because you attend there.

When you're deciding between UCLA for less money and Wash U for more money, those stats really do make you think.
