Yeah, I knew I was fighting an uphill battle with my crappy GPA. It's cool. I'll just keep my rejection letter in case I become a senator. :lol:

I like the attitude. Plus, it looks like you are already in good schools.

god lets hope so... My theory is that the admissions committee meets on Mon and Tues then decisions get mailed out on Wed and arrive on TR, F, Sat... looking at LSN most peoples decisions seem to be 7, 6, and 5 days apart... I don't know though...

awwww man! I just realized I have a tour and class visit scheduled for next Tuesday. :shock:
Guess I will e-mail and cancel but that makes me feel like an even bigger chump. "Gee, I was going to come visit and be all excited but seeing as my admission was declined, I guess I will just slink away in shame."

You should go and when your sitting in on the class stand up and just start yelling and don't stop until you are forcibly removed from the campus...

My status checker changed today - application complete - but it has been complete. However, the date changed to 2/4/09

I was wondering if it meant anything?

Probably not. This has happened to many people for many schools. I think it basically means you're not rejected. No decision yet, but not a rejection.

Dennis, if you don't mind, what was your GPA? I ask because I also got a 158 on the LSAT. My GPA's a 3.40, so it's by no means stellar. If you don't want to disclose it, that's cool. L&C is also my top choice, by far, so I'm sorry it didn't work out. On the bright side though - you're still in Oregon! I can't wait to get out of the shitty state I'm in now.

Also, did you apply to Vermont? I got a call from a really nice 2L Vermont Law student last night which alleviated some of my concerns about the school being in the middle of nowhere.

Lewis and Clark is the biggest tease out there.

I got the big white envelope today with this little bitty practical skills thing in it. This is in addition to the financial aid email I got the other day.

Sigh.

I can't get over how cute that girl in your tar is.

Also, Lewis and Clark needs to get it together!

A practical skills brochure, unfortunately none of those skills are going to help me cope with what is becoming my obessive/compuslive mail checking disorder.

Ugh! I don't know why L&C is sending practical skills book thing in a large envelope, such a tease. I wonder if everyone receives this in the mail or maybe potential students who's going to be accepted? Wishful thinkin'.

you can only hope the "environmental" law school would be sending out materials for a purpose and not just to waste paper.

I'm sorry about the news. You have a really good GPA and I thought L&C loves those!
Good luck with other schools.
Does your status still say "application complete?"
Can I ask when you submitted everything ?
