I missed the fashion stuff, but I'd imagine that the way people dress around the school has little to no relevance as to the quality of the school. For example, Penn is not in the best part of Philadelphia, and I'm guessing you'd be uncomfortable there, but that doesn't mean anything about the school.

I agree. but it's something I noticed that I didn't like. and so I mentioned it. and was shocked when I was beaten up for it.

wow. just got into a major fight with my boyfriend and decided to dissipate my anger by doing the status-checker thing and checking up on this thread. where'd the happiness go? i think i'd pick my boyfriend's tension-filled apartment over the fordham thread right now. and that's saying something ... on behalf of everybody, i call a time out.

For the record, I'm not having a cow. I've cut back on beef, but I eat lots of pork. :lol:

actually, if the thread was covered in plastic, i would've assumed i was being whacked. the onslaught from my fashion comment was ridiculous.

hi carmen =) people got some results today, even up to 1/12 completes. not me yet though!

my bf called me from 73rd st with stuff from shake shack with a 15 minute story about puppies and made my day (he never calls me). I hope your situation eases! It's weird but when I'm pissed at mine if I do something nice for him it makes me feel better, too. Something a Chabad Rabbi's wife taught me. When you do something that shows love, you feel love.

I will also add that if we're all going to be lawyers, we need thicker skin. If someone "jumps down your throat" you should be able to calmly refute their points without getting emotional or defensive. Let's practice that. Debate is healthy and informative, being catty is neither.

if that's how everyone's going to be I don't want to go there. it's the same issue I have with many sects of organized religion. I believe in healthy amounts of disagreement and I believe that alternate views are GOOD things. But I don't think that's how everyone is going to be. It's just weird... I saw someone like a block away whose teenage butt was sticking out and I mentioned that in my analysis of the environment. I went to visit and people asked. I told them everything honestly. It's only fair to get a full picture, even if it is skewed because I notice things different from what other people would notice.

hence the shock at anyone being so damn concerned what I thought of some high schoolers walking past campus, and kim's shock at anyone caring that she thought the law students dressed shoddily (incidentally, the ones I saw looked nice except for the one in the out-of-date leather jacket and black beard... law version of scenester?). the only reason I kept this argument going, and I think the reason kim did so yesterday, was that we feel we have the right to our opinions and to express ourselves in the way we want. we don't want the thread thinking we're thumb sucking idiots who are just meanybutts who both judge other people and then don't stick up for our own opinions when those opinions are attacked on the basis of character flaws (I thought at the very latest we would have learned not to do this through taking the LSAT, but apparently not).

Anyway, since it's been brought up, does anyone have a sense of the time line for PT apps? I applied 1/12 and it took almost 3 weeks for them to send me an acknowledge my app. When should I expect to hear? This week? May? August? It seems as though some folks here have been waiting for friggin ever.


I don't think there is any set timeline really. Its a combination of when you applied and which pile you initially wound up in. Some PTs here have been waiting for eons and others got a pretty quick response.

My personal timeline was app submitted the day they finally released the app. (was it Oct 19th I think?) and I was accepted around Dec 7th. Some people that submitted the same time as me are stilll waiting...

Barely a month left until seat deposits due, can't be that much longer can it?

Wait wait, are you from NYC or out of town? Because if you're from NYC, you should know that you'll see far worse than a teenager with their butt sticking out, and if you're NOT from NYC, you're in for a rude awakening.

OK, enough is enough. I think I've been the biggest cheerleader for EVERYone on this thread for some time.

Kim, I was pissed off at the idea that someone would judge a school based on the way the kids dress. You attend fashion school, your sensibility is trained and attuned to clothing/dress, that's totally valid. But, like Sibely, I don't edit my words. I don't pick fights here, I DO speak my mind.

Sibley, I get that you don't care about the PT decisions as they are not relevant to your situation. Totally valid. I was trying to make a suggestion, for some reason it really upset you, sorry.

As for laughing?
I laugh when things get ridiculous - as I feel this entire discussion has become. Guys. It is a CHAT BOARD. Sheesh.

I'm from upstate. My boyfriend lives in Mt Kisco and his best friend has an apartment in the city so I visit frequently with him. I wasn't BOTHERED by the way they dress. People upstate dress much worse, though albeit much more covered. I just noticed it and I tend to say everything that I'm thinking.

As for the show thing, I just wanted to tell you that for a long time and I tend to lose my filter a bit when I'm pissed and especially when I feel I'm being insulted, so I said so. I did watch the first several seasons, though. But only because I had nothing to do. The show would be okay, but I really hate nancy. she has no facial expressions.

see but that's the whole point. i said 100 times that it was just an offhand comment and had NOTHING, i repeat, NOTHING to do with my decision nor how i felt about the school. yet you still continued. you being "pissed off" was irrational and then you proceeded to make nasty comments about how you hoped to God GULC students dressed better, as if i was an idiot who will choose her school based on fashion. when you make comments, expect a response. that's all i'm saying. stop preaching to everyone that we should all be nice, when you yourself do not follow your own advice.

anyway, this is done with. you are who you are and i am who i am. end of story.

Sorry you feel that way about the show, that's your opinion and you're welcome to it - but an ad hominem attack like that is going to get you nowhere, just fyi.
