I was going to, then didn't pull the trigger because I'm poor. I finally did in early Feb though, so it's been almost 4 weeks.

You wanna post or PM the exact date? I have a vested interest in the answer.

Taking bets on whether or not crackberry's rejection comes before his complete letter. ;)

In, was admitted at the HLS ASW. Feels so good cause now I'll be able to reject Yale and take Harvard instead. I don't understand what it is you all see in Yale. I have a theory...I think you all want to feel special because Yale only accepts a couple of hundred while Harvard accepts many more. Well I'm sorry TLS but selectivity isn't all, sorry Asha, I loved HLS, Cambridge and Boston too much.

Great dude, free up a spot at Yale for someone who really wants it.

Blatant Harvard trolling in the Yale thread

BUT please withdraw if you're serious...this is one school that it might actually make a difference for...

a nice short and simple "Yale wasn't for me" would have sufficed...

Lol j/p good luck at Harvard

I want to be an academic. Yale's loan repayment program is better. I want to clerk for SCOTUS. From everything I read, Yale cares about the whole of an applicant slightly more than Harvard.

There are things about Harvard I like too, such as the ability to take classes at MIT. That would be another dream fullfilled. Plus my mom would probably like Harvard a bit more :)

At the risk of once again taking a troll seriously: Both of them are very good schools. For me, I really like the idea of being able to take an elective my first year - though you can do this at Harvard, from what I hear you're a bit restrained in choices (it has to be international/comparative law, right?). I especially like the idea of taking one that will lead to a seminar paper that can (ostensibly) be published at some point. I also like the idea of attending a smaller school and Yale's advantage in academic placement (what I want to do) can't be argued with.

But Harvard is a fantastic school that makes more sense than Yale for plenty of applicants. Enjoy Boston. I may well be joining you next fall.

While I don't like the rhetoric/tact of this post, I do agree with the content. People put too much emphasis on rankings and prestige. Go where you will be happy. Good luck at HLS, MichelledeMontaigne.

I really don't like Palo Alto and I don't want to commute to school.

The answer is obvious: because Stanford is in decline. I invite others to start a "Is Stanford in decline?" thread on the Choosing a Law School forum.

My like-minded thread about New Haven Community College Law School made for some interesting discussion.

BioE, is there any merit to what TheWire says? PM me.

Also, Cal sucks.

O.K. The real reason: I don't want to go to school at Taco Bell.

EDIT:
I don't want to sully the Yale thread with large .jpgs of a restaurant chain and university, both in decline. ;)

The resemblance is striking.
