Yes.


What about a note scrawled on the back of the letter from the dean suggesting you 'meet up?'
And does that actually mean he wants to meet up? Or does that just mean he wants me to go to one of the admitted students days?


Same message. Nothing particulary personal about it. I would imagine he is talking about an accepted students day.


He has very nice handwriting, doesn't he?

I applied here on 11/1 and was complete right away. However, I never received a complete email. I just called Admissions and spoke to a salty woman who couldn't even bother to ask if I had any other questions or say goodbye before ending the call. She said I was complete and just hung up the phone. Total turn off.

Does anyone know if Brooklyn offers travel stipends to come visit?

Yep! something like $200 if you're more than 250 miles away, and more if you're 500 miles or more, I think.
250 is the first cutoff distance, for sure (I'm 260, so I noticed...)

Thanks. I think I know what it is now.


Well don't freak out until you see what it is... and when you do find out, let me know! I'm curious.

For anyone who cares to find out:

The letter was from the MTA Transit Adjudication Bureau, just as I expected. Back in December, I got a $100 ticket for walking between cars on a subway train (I shit you not). I checked the "not guilty" box and sent it along with an explanatory letter (with a made up story about a homeless person and foul smell) on its happy way to Brooklyn.

The certified letter was a response from the "hearing" on my case. Just to receive the letter, I had to sign name, print name, print address on a touch-pad and then do the same on a paper slip. At that point I was sure it was at least a copy of my arrest warrant, if not a death sentence.

Turns out that the case was thrown b/c my ticket had no date on it and the copy that the cop submitted did. :D


Awesome!!
I got a ticket in the adirondaks for camping in a spot that was no longer a designated camping spot. they drove by at 11pm and has us move our cars off the road. they came back at 2am, woke us up, and ticketed us. the ranger then told us we could move to another unmarked spot, but that one was okay. I called the court a half dozen times at least, but the court is tiny and no one answered... until I left a final voicemail, which said "If I don't hear from you I'm going to assume the case has been thrown out." Then the judge called me back. but when I returned his call in the hours he said to he didn't answer! so I didn't attend my 6-hours-away hearing. Instead I wrote a letter requesting an attached letter be heard as a defense. I included maps from the parks website showing the site as a real campground. This was October. I assume the judge was like "I am not messing with this." and threw it out. Because, hello Hammurabi, laws have to be posted.

Tickets suck. Especially the poorly justified ones where the cops just seem to want to fill their quota.

Just saying hello in case I end up here. Admitted, but not my top choice.

So I have all of my documents in for Brooklyn, but I haven't received any notification about my application being complete. Does Brooklyn send out an email?

Congratulations to all of you who have been accepted. Brooklyn is actually in my top 5 schools, so I'm pretty excited.

When did you go complete?

Also, how were you accepted (email, snail mail?)

So far I only received an email saying they have my application and will notify me if they need anything.

In today via email. Finally some good news!

App submitted by early Nov. but my undergrad dropped the ball and didn't send dean's cert til Jan 8.

- Also for those of you wondering about 'complete' notifications, they sent me one on Jan 25 basically saying it was gonna take forever (though I guess it wasn't the case)

"During the course of this review, if we determine that something is missing or requires further clarification, we will communicate with you promptly. Otherwise, you can assume that your file is complete.

Beginning in mid-January, the Law School’s Committee on Admissions will be meeting approximately once each week throughout the spring semester. Your file is among the thousands of Category I files that are now being reviewed. We will do our best to notify you by mail of the School’s decision as soon before April 1 as we can. We apologize in advance for any increased levels of anxiety or uncertainty this may cause but, as you can well imagine, multiple reviews of several thousand applications and comparative deliberations by the Committee on Admissions consume a great amount of time."

Got that call from a student that y'all were talking about. He seemed a little awkward and appeared to be working full time? But he was nice and he told me I could call him on his cell phone if I had any questions. Asked me if I was still interested in Brooklyn, did your callers ask you that?

So glad you posted this! I got my complete notification email last Wednesday and saw on LSN and TLS that decisions seemed to be coming out a day or two after. I was losing hope that I had any chance of getting accepted since they were taking a relatively long time, but I guess I still have a shot!
