As far as I know, my rec has already been written and they've been too busy to fax it in! I've been trying to back off bugging them, especially since it's election season (I work for an elected official) and they're very busy. But yeah, I worry all the time about possible voodoo dolls of myself popping up in their offices.

  • re: fee waiver
  • Monday, September 08 2008 at 05:38 PM

I would except I'm personally against applying to schools with no intention/interest of going there (bad experience with a certain jerk in hs who had stellar scores, decided to apply everywhere just to "see if he could get in"...) My list might change post-LSAT, but these are all places that offer me what I'm looking for, so they're golden for now.

  • Tuesday, September 09 2008 at 05:01 AM

No!! Didn't you read what's next to my extracurrics? I'm taking the October LSAT, so I'm going to narrow my schools down once that score is official. Come on...if you're going to be my backup singer, I expect you to be able to keep up with every detail of my life. It's part of the job. ps: like 16 schools is so much less than 25... :)

- blueskies6
  • Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 07:18 AM

I'm having the same problem with my recommender-- it really sucks because you have to balance asserting his/her guarantee to get your letter in with the fact that they are essentially doing you a favor. i'm not sure how to handle it-- if they don't get them in by the end of this week i'm going to have to keep bugging them :/

No way I'm conferring a title to you, sweetie. We'll play numbers or percentages and I'm still sure you'll win. Or, we can look at the numbers/percentages of common schools to which we applied. Either way, I think you win. And I'm free to keep sipping my Haterade :)

Now I'm gonna spend the whole day trying to figure out what you deleted. PS: Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard Harvard ARGH Apparently, the entire school knows I got in now (small campus, news spreads like wildfire, people care way too much about other people's lives) so I have all these students and professors talking to me about Harvard and living in Cambridge and what next year's going to be like for me. Feels like every person on this campus thinks they know where I'll be next year except ME.

  • Next Year
  • Saturday, December 06 2008 at 06:49 AM

See....I really don't know. Maybe Yale just because I really love small schools.

- DontKnowMe
  • Ooops
  • Saturday, December 06 2008 at 06:52 AM

Didn't mean for that to post yet, I wasn't finished. That's why I applied to so many schools. I really don't want to do BIGLAW. I know people who are and I really don't want to be them. I would love to do a clerkship and then do PI or government. So I'm looking for schools with good PI/Gov't connections (GULC?), great LRAP and maybe PI summer financing (HLS/NYU)...but I also really like small schools and would love to graduate without debt so I wouldn't have to worry about LRAP or about getting a high paying job. That's why Harvard's not a slam dunk.

  • Friday, December 12 2008 at 12:13 PM

Heh, do you update this thing as soon as you get responses like I do? (I just got the email, update the profile for my own use, and saw you'd just done the same.)

- daico
  • Friday, December 12 2008 at 01:10 PM

Heh, me too. I'm partly trying to make my profile helpful for future folk looking to see what happened and partly keeping it for my own perusal. Right now, it's mentally down to UVA and UT (I'm assuming I'll get into UVA; look at their graph and it seems pretty damn likely). If I can get UT up high enough, then definitely UT, otherwise I'm gonna ride the cycle, take in all the relevant factors, and then flip a coin. Honestly, though, the idea of going to a school founded by Thomas Jefferson excites me inordinately.

Yale, Harvard and Michigan (esp. with a Darrow) are all pretty much tied in my head now. I might visit Yale and Harvard over winter break, since they are reasonably close by. It's all very confusing (but in a good way, I guess).
