I didn't wait for him to introduce himself after seeing the area code...

Dean Tom: "Hi, is this [Maggiebre]?
Me: "Hi, Dean Tom?!?!"

Dean Tom,

Just so you know, you don't even have to call me, just tweet me if it's easier.

I am starting to wonder has anyone who was called by Dean Tom acted like a sane, rational person on the phone?

Granted, if I was ever to get a call from Dean Tom, i would probably either a) drop my phone in disbelief (which I did when I was called for a Microsoft interview) or b) tell my brother to stop messing with me and go back to class.

This is a fun thread. From what I understand, not many of the schools I'm waiting to hear from use the dean phone call method. Too bad.

I don't know why not... It's gotta be one of the highlights of the job.

Dean Tom,

You can call any number you like. I'll even go buy a pager.

I have decided not to go to the library to write my paper because there is no cell phone reception. Do you see this dedication Dean Tom? Please call me now. You obviously have enough of those high LSAT people.

Dean Tom,

Please like my number. You hopefully will notice that it's quite easy to dial. The last four digits are simply the four corners. HTH.
