Good luck-


This is the only place on earth where people gather to gripe about anticipated holds/waitlists.

Are you serious? YOU HAVENT GOTTEN YOUR DECISION YET! If you were so convinced that you were going to get a hold or waitlist you wouldn't have applied. At least calm down and wait until you see the letter before commiserating over a hypothetical imminent hold/WL... (obviously this is directed to the people griping who criticize other people for griping).

:D


Hah Burger I'm not griping! An earlier poster mentioned big envelope = acceptance, and I'm content/really effing excited with/for Fordham :). BC was for lack of a better word- a safety (not by the numbers!) in case for some reason I lose my job and then decide to go to a full-time program.


I know- I'm just yankin' your chain, Tesoro. :)

YES!!!! :) Congrats!


Thanks Burger!!!! Now I have the oh-so-awful chore of trying to decide where to go! I'm in at 2 sets of sister/twinner schools: BU & BC and W&M and W&L (and going to wait on Cornell) but I guess in the mean time I can try and pick one of those. No idea how to do that. /bragging to make self feel better about stupid Cornell deferral today.

Anyone in NYC get their letter yet? I'm hoping to come home from work to a nice acceptance letter (Cornell and BC in one day would be a nice 1-2 punch).

Um, everyone knows that 2 sets of sister/twinner schools PWNS Cornell any day of the week!!! That's like having two of a kind vs. like, 1 Queen...ok I don't know anything at all about poker but I think that sort of sounded convincing???

Well, if BC doesn't pull through, I'd be happy to punch you instead :P

To those who got in: First off, congrats, and was there any mention of scholarship in the admissions letter?

Pretty big. It has a magazine-size viewbook inside to give you an idea.

Anyone not get in? I'm assuming they're sending rejection letters as well, right?

ah, didn't realize my post was right below your deferral post. I wouldn't get too down about that, it seems like last year much of their class was made up of EA deferrals. It makes sense based on the quality of applicants they've been deferring.

It's totally ok :) Seriously, congratulations on Cornell and I'm sure BC-- you deserve it and it was just too good of an opening to pass up :P

What? no I'm an applicant like everybody else, I have a lot of friends in law school...and friends in general. This is the information I got last night from a friend of mine, he advised me that if I get money from BC to just go there because DEBT IS HUGE. He is paying sticker at Columbia as well as a few of my other friends and his fiance graduated from BC last year but is unemployed as of now. It's a really tough market, I suggest you do research and talk to current 3L students. Look no need to be a dbag about it, I was just putting in my 2 cents from actual 3L students at elite schools as well as BC.

Yeah, that's what has me concerned. The acceptances from BC and BU are nice and all, but without scholarships, I'm not seeing how I could justify going there instead of W&M or W&L where I have money and/or the COL is so much lower.

haha not buzz Burger. I'm really contemplating applying to lower ranked schools and trying to get a scholarship. A lot of the students think it will eventually get better like by the time class of 2013 graduates, but right now it's a tough market and he thinks I should go for the scholarships. Anyways just sharing information I thought would be useful and I am in no way bashing BC just stating what is the current situation for 3L's at BC and Columbia I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT OTHER SCHOOLS. Just go on a thread and ask current students, REAL students and they will all tell you the same thing...the legal market is F'd up right now.

IN!! Pretty psyched up about it. Was starting to get a bit nervous over that dumb decision date theory, even though I told myself I shouldn't think about that. 167, 3.5x URM, wrote a Why BC statement and went in for a visit a few weeks ago. The letter makes it sound like scholarship offers come later.
