How were you notified? Email, Status Checker, or Snail Mail?

Doesn't look like your cycle is going too well this year, maybe bad karma for being a DB?

I checked the status checker and there was a digital version of my mailed letter. Also, there was a link right below the decision rendered notification that said something the the effect of: "Fill out your waitlist response now."

Anyway, if it came down to Davis and no law school, I'd probably take no school. Not a fan of small towns. I can't imagine what they were thinking, but maybe it's because my Feb LSAT didn't reach them for consideration. My previous LSAT was 166.

Received a nice e-mail today from admissions. I was awarded a small scholarship, renewable all 3 years. My need-based was also raised a bit. Estimating 1L at $40k, I almost have 1L payed for!

He is just upset (hopefully), though that doesn't make it right to bash a great school.

Wow. Congratulations. Very nice.

And Xizenta: Enjoy your desirable LSAT score and surely higher-ranked schools. I am jealous, for sure. But no need to come shit in everybody's apple pie.

Sincerely,

Some hick who got into a crap school with a 161.

Basically for three reasons:
1: I wasn't as informed as I am now about career prospects after graduation. I thought that 15% placed into biglaw, and now I think that it will be more like 5% for our class.
2: I thought that if I did not get into Hastings, I would attend Davis and shoot to transfer to a better school after 1L, such as USC or UCLA. Later I learned that transferring schools has it's own consequences, etc.
3: I had a 166 at the time and Davis was on the upper end of my options, obviously that changed with the new score...

So basically, my situation has just changed. Anyway, my train of thought now is more along the lines of - well, Davis doesn't open any doors to biglaw anyway, which means I would be getting one of those sub-80k jobs upon graduation... Why not attend a lower ranked school in a town I prefer by a long shot, and probably with a scholarship. The lower ranked school will get me a job of the same paygrade without a problem.

like? Most schools let transfers participate in L2 OCI's, so you can say you finished at the top of your class at your old school and get the job interviews and opportunities your new school has....am I missing something?

Yeah, congrats! Did you already pay the seat deposit or is this a way for them to convince you to commit? I know you're considering other schools too.

Sweet dude! I bet they saw that you are the only one on here "officially" committed to Davis on the TLS 2013 page. :wink: Man, I could use a little of that money love action too!

No seat deposit yet, but will be submitting it once I receive my official Financial Aid package.

Did they just email you? How'd your find out?

I checked the status checker and the first thing I saw was the Waitlist Form. Then I looked at status and my decision letter was there.

Probably all true. But why shit on Davis when you are planning on going to an even "piece of crap"[-pier] school. You just sound bitter.

Well, I'm not planning on it. I'm hoping for NW, Cornell, Gulc, USC, or Vandy... but if it came down to it, i think i might choose loyola or USD over davis.

Anyway, I wasn't really serious about calling Davis a shitty school, but you must admit it is a little bit funny that they waitisted me... :lol: I called the school crap because they apparently don't know what they are doing in admissions - Apps take forever to evaluate, the location is unappealing, etc. Still, only half serious... I would go to Davis if I lived in the area.
