stats? complete date? sorry, just curious here :)


3.95, 161, good softs I think, complete shortly after submitting on 11/2, although I had to call them in late January to get a complete confirmation. With my LSAT I'm not surprised by the ding. I think I like BC better anyway :)

Sorry about the bad news from BU; do you mind if I ask if the letter went to a current or permanent address?


Thanks, it doesn't bother me at all. It was sent to my current address, which is the same as my permanent.

But what if you just don't test well? You end up spending money on the wait (living expenses, a job that pays less than after law school, etc)... for questionable results.


IN OTHER NEWS:
I am going to put a wireless video camera in my mailbox. I need to know what the heck is in there.
Think it'd work if I put one of those wireless sd cards in my digital camera and just let it run? I also will need a device to shuffle the mail for me, so I can see it all.


That's definitely true. I'm extremely lucky in that I was able to stay with my family rent free, so I didn't have much in living expenses. However, I'd rather pay a year's worth of living expenses than 3 years worth of tuition at a TTTT, you know? Because yeah, the job you have in that year pays less than many good law jobs, but what are your chances of getting a good law job out of a crap school? Because that's where I and many other poor LSAT scorers would have ended up if we didn't take a year off. Even if you don't test well, I can imagine that a year of studying would still be able to raise your score at least a FEW points.

And, if you don't mind the question, was the letter sent to your current or permanent address?

I went a week straight hearing something from a school everyday, but for the past two weeks I have heard zilch. It's driving me mad because I have to decide on a school by April 1st! But it won't help if I don't hear back from all the ones I applied to.

I know! I need at least a month and a half to make a decision...

I just got an e-mail from William & Mary telling me that if I've already decided to go to another law school that I should withdraw. I have not committed anywhere yet. Are they trying to tell me something???? So random.

It's going pretty well. We have come a long way from that LSAT thread!

I'm still waiting for something REALLY exciting to come through. You're doing really well! Where are you leaning?

Well once you get past my "fudged" numbers, its easy to see that I've got in everywhere I was a shoe-in but everywhere that I was 50/50 I was waitlisted. Michigan came through big, I was not expecting that at all. The rest of the schools left on my list are mostly the upper T14 so I'm sure they will be rejections or WLs if I'm lucky. Michigan seems to be it, but I'm sure I'll have to pay full price which is definitely not good.

You got GWU thats a big one. Personally I think you'll get into Cornell. I think you got a solid shot at Michigan too with that GPA. Maybe we'll both end up at Michigan.

BTW: Whats up with ND? I thought you applied there but I didnt see it on your list.

I'm afraid of that, they seem to be quite picky. Mich >>>>> ND, though. I would die for that acceptance!
