Cornell rejected me, giving me my first rejection! That's fine, that just means one less school to email about my change of address and updated transcripts, haha!

Thank you, Michigan, for this rejection. Your special snowflake status checker has been a pain in my ass since the day I received it over a month after submitting, and it dealt the final blow as the medium of rejection.

No Decision Letter from Northwestern today, taking that as a ding based on previous cycles. Bummed. :(

Feel like I'll be joining you guys soon enough. Death in the Afternoon, anyone? Seems fitting.

Boston University sent me packing in a rude way. First, to get some frustration out, the Boston accent just sounds like they never made it all the way through school - we speak English here in the good ol' USA, learn it. At least a Southern accent has some charm. Bostonians just sound like they're coming off a severe night of drinking. Secondly, after asking admissions to hold my file from review for my December LSAT - to which they said they would - they rejected me in 4 days of review, with good numbers, LORs, resume, the gammit. Not only did admissions lie and not hold my file, they so kindly decided to review my file, make a decision, sit on it for a month and half, AND THEN when my even higher LSAT posted, I was "reviewed" the fastest in recorded history at Boston University. I am sure this was purely out of their concern to 'expedite' my file - seeing that I had waited patiently for so long - and to employ that fantastically 'holistic' approach I hear about so much.

Keep your winters and your lame accent. Let's keep it real, Boston cranks out bank robbers and corporate lawyers, in which it is often hard to tell the two apart.

Jonnie Walker, double-black, neat please.

Don't sweat it, there's sometimes no rhyme or reason. I've been accepted to 90% of the schools
applied to and getting the cold shoulder from a couple that should have been no brainers. Depends
who reads your file on a given day and the mood their in. Who knows, but I second the sentiment on Boston
winters. The heck with that! :)

Cheers :D While the story is true, my post is meant in good humor; I'm sure BU is a great place to study. I concur that admissions is often a crap shoot with contingencies like those you mentioned.

Hey Antonin Scalia Law School and Washington & Lee University, if I had wanted to study at a school named after an overzealous racist, I would have just enrolled at Trump University. At least there I would have the promise of some settlement money and not just a 65% chance at a shit job in nowhere Virginia.

Well, fine, Michigan. As previously stated, I'm not a huge fan of the cold, and I never really got into Harry Potter, so the Hogwarts vibe wasn't a draw for me anyways.

A WL may not be worthy of a cocktail, but a beer maybe? A DIPA. Bitter, like my disposition.
