I just got the call. In!!! First law school I would consider attending, especially with a merit scholarship. Very, very exciting day after not so hot day from Cornell yesterday!

Go where they offer you money, if BC offers me a lot of money and BU craps out then I'm taking BC.


I agree but this guy already has a network in that law firm where he knows everyone. He would have an advantage in this economy over a lot of others. He already works there.

That's what I'm thinking too. Otherwise, I'd say to follow the $$

Oh yeah yeah, sorry I didn't see the previous posts. Yeah you're right then, that's awesome that you have a foot in the door and you're right Fordham and BU aren't that far apart from each other rankings wise. I'm actually contemplating not attending law school if I don't get into a school worth paying ticket and/or no scholarship money besides WUSTL. I don't know, I think I've been researching too much and talking to too many students and lawyers...but it's depressing news...ahhh we owe China $900 Billion dollars...and for what? Cash for Clunkers? Universal Healthcare? Increased tuition? Million dollar payouts to ex-ceo's....*sigh*...depressing.

Thanks. 3.5, 168. I got the ready for review email on 11/25.

Initially, I had applied because I recieved a fee waiver. The more I hear the more I like it though. I wonder if people in my range typically get a little merit aid, as that would make a big difference.

Thanks Krispy. Bummer about Team 11/13 getting the stiff arm from Cornell. Just in here and Washington & Lee, which I wouldn't really consider. I have a lot of factors going into law school decisions, including a spouse with his own career and ambition (what a dick that guy is :D ). So I need something either national or with a regional reach in the areas he can work. The northeast generally fits that description for us.

I still have 18 schools to hear from but can cross most of my list as the rest are beneath Fordham and BU and a few others are reaches I don't expect to get into.

Numbers are 164/3.85
I know everyone seems to hate on softs but I have over 4 years of experience working in law related fields. Worked part time for a big jam band's attorney (employed through their label), interned two summers in the legal dept of the biggest record company, and have held a job for two years as a para in one of the top firms.

My plan is to wait and see where I get in...once I do, I'll get in talk with some of the people in legal recruiting and see if they can offer any advice. I'd definitely be interested in their input.

Got the call at 4:44 pm - 164, 3.8

I submitted 11/12, they never e-mailed me to confirm receipt so I had to call and ask them - they checked for me and told me I was complete the same day (12/1/09).

WOOT! She made no mention of money though... assuming that means I don't get any? No complaints either way!

Does anyone have a sense of how generous BU is with money? I poked around LSN a bit. They seem a little inconsistent, even at higher numbers.

hey don't say that. I'm a splitter and you have a better LSAT than me. it's still early in the cycle, they may have just not gotten to you yet. I want you to get to BU b/c unlike BC..BU is nationally recognized better...especially beautiful sunny LA where we call home...I'm pulling for you buddy. But think about the BC app...ack I know what you're thinking BC will get us stuck in Boston and that you gotta leave an out to get back to LA. I feel for you bro, "We Love LA."

Do they always tell you about scholarships when they call? I got the call on Monday, but she did not mention anything about money, does that mean I am getting nothing? I thought I read that someone received scholarship information later in the mail.
