WORD!

Explanation
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

How do you plan on explaing your low grades? I am in a similar situation. Any advice would be very appreciated.

Title
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

We have very similar numbers and I noticed we're both applying for UF and FSU. Best of luck and I hope you get a lot of acceptance letters.

Miami
Monday, August 27 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yep. 20 days. Actually the letter is dated the 15th.

Over 4.0
Monday, August 27 2007 at 08:00 PM

The school I go to gives A+ grades. While they don't count for anything more than 4.0 at the school, LSAC counts an A+ as 4.33. So my 4.0 became a 4.05. It is weird I know.

re: School
Monday, August 27 2007 at 08:00 PM

I go to South Florida

Pitt
Monday, October 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

How long do you think it will take for them to get back to us?

good luck
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

I hope GW is a safety. Their new medians are pretty intimidating, though (167/3.75). The only good thing about those kinds of medians, however, is that they MUST have given a lot of splitter-love last year. Hopefully they do the same this year. Good luck with your cycle, see ya in class.

good luck to you too!
Wednesday, July 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, we do have a lot in common. Just wish we had the same LSAT score in common too. Ha. Good luck this cycle!

Thank You
Wednesday, November 07 2007 at 07:00 PM

I will definitely submit an application to those schools.

GOOD LUCK!
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Good luck this cycle! Don't be psyched out by FSU's acceptance if it comes b/c it is in a small white envelope - not your typical acceptance letter! Just wanted to prep you for that one!

school..
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

BC - had a great time - actually I was rejected undergrad from UNC - tough to get in out of state!

Miami
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

I heard by regular mail... Don't worry, you'll be getting yours soon... =D .. Good Luck on all the other schools, hope to see you at one of our schools..haha

CONGRATS
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

on Dayton - now you feel my excitement - not the one you want to go to but at least you are going SOMEWHERE! There are plenty more in your near future! AWESOME!

...
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

true, at least you feel wanted somewhere...but it will most definitely not be your last! Hang in there for the big ones!

FUNNY!
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I was just talking to my mom and telling her that I would probably receive a scholarship offer from FCSL - they do that more than you would expect! Congrats though...you are WANTED!

...
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Say you won't go anywhere without "State" or "College" or "University" in the name! All I know about it is that it must be on the florida coast...aside from that - I've got nothin'!

SWEET
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Sounds STELLAR - I think you should withdraw all of your other applications and accept the offer now before they drop it!! RRRIIIIIGGGGHHHHHTTTTTT

FCSL!
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

That is hilarious that you received an acceptance without even applying. I did apply there as a safety but quite frankly they didn't offer me enough money for me to take them seriously. I know my numbers aren't astounding but come on! Either way, getting acceptances for schools you haven't even applied for HAS to be a good sign for how this cycle is going to go for you. :-)

mmm
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

I think you misread that FC email.

congrats on pitt!
Wednesday, July 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

i just got the letter today too, complete with money clip!

Congradulations
Tuesday, July 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

It is good to actually witness a splitter acceptance, instead of just hearing tales. Good luck with the rest of the process!

DC, tv, etc.
Wednesday, July 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

I was in DC last spring, working for Sen. Kennedy, and would really like to go back for three years, if anyone in that area is kind enough to accept me! The Office is almost out of episodes, so I'm near tears too. So where's your number 1 right now?

fcsl
Monday, October 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

did your email explicitly say that you were admitted with a suitcase of $ or did it only say that you "qualified" for their school. i have never heard of a school letting in anyone without some interest.

WashU
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, so far I have only received that one piece of paper with a handwritten note that said they would be in touch about scholarships and an invitation to visit. Hopefully something more will come soon. Congrats on the acceptances!

congrats!
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

That's awesome about WashU. I hope I hear soon. How high up on your list is it?

Splitting
Thursday, July 12 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I feel the same way about the scholarship thing. They threw the scholarship info in there to keep us looking for info although it won't come. I'm not too optimistic. I read somewhere that everyone is considered for scholarships any my GPA just doesn't cut it I don't think. I plan on keeping my expectations low so I can be pleasantly surprised.

congrats
Wednesday, July 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

on WUSTL!

Thanks!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

And congrats on your acceptances and good luck on all the rest! :)

Congrats!
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations on WUStL! Hopefully I will do as well as you--I only hope I didn't apply too late in the cycle.

I agree...
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

and I feel the same way about Texas - their loss - we're still sitting pretty as far as I'm concerned!

Congrats
Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Wash U. It's a great school. All I've heard is how similiar the two are and how they compete for students, so don't put down your chances at Vandy yet. Good luck and maybe I'll see you next year!

Sewanee
Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

I actually went to undergrad at Sewanee, but know several people that went to Vanderbilt and they loved it. I work in the Nashville area right now. Good luck with all the decisions!

thanks
Tuesday, May 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, happy belated Hanukkah to you too!

Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

Saturday, November 17 2007 at 07:00 PM

Seems to hate us splitters. Their loss. Congrats on WUSTL and good luck with the rest of your apps!

Have no idea why that posted twice. sorry

I KNOW!
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

I think she actually just had lunch with my mom to try to get me to come! It was a very nice email but I don't think I will be in KY next year!

you're right
Wednesday, July 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

i didn't want to go to georgetown anyway. and who would want to live in austin? we're both much better off.

Thanks you
Tuesday, July 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Well thank you very much. It does feel good. And it would be an awsome safety school. I am really hoping for a school out west. But any Institute of Technology would be SWEET! I will be keeping my fingas crossed. Good luck to ya.

preferences
Wednesday, November 21 2007 at 07:00 PM

I would love to be able to stay in Nashville since my fiance works here, but unfortunately money is an issue.....so I'm leaning toward Vandy, but could be swayed when scholarships come in....do you have any preferences?

wustl, etc
Wednesday, July 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

Nope, no WUSTL for me, I'm not a big fan of the midwest. And right now, the NC schools are looking pretty good to me. And congrats on Nova! And happy holidays!

Emory
Sunday, October 21 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks, appreciate it. Applications seem to be down this year, so maybe they'll need some more high LSATs later in the cycle. Good luck!

yep
Tuesday, May 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

yep, bye bye cooley :)

yea dude whatever
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

...I don't even know if I would go to UIUC if accepted but I will stay on just to see what happens! HOW FRIGGEN AWESOME that you got the Scholar of Law Award at WUSTL! You're the man, dawg! I am so jealous! I haven't even heard from them yet! I guess I should be happy with what I have but man that is AWESOME! Keep in touch brotha!

congrats on your cycle so far. how did you hear bout your nova scholly? any info would be very helpful. thanks.

Pretty much
Saturday, January 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

I mostly agree with you. I have not been impressed with UF. They just haven't tried to sell their school at all. FSU on the other hand has been very cordial and I do like their school. That being said I still have no idea where I am going yet. I am still hoping for Harvard. 8)

re: congrats and hello
Tuesday, September 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hello right back at you! First off, congrats on all your acceptances. I'm glad to hear that you think you will be at WashU next year. I wasn't at the Jan ASW, but I went to visit on my own earlier in the year. I LOVED it too. I'm really glad you said hello. Good luck with the rest of your semester!

leaning
Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 07:00 PM

Washu as of now, but I haven't heard from half the places I applied (I'll unhide them once they go decision). Washu is extremely generous though, I was leaning toward Vandy until I found out about the money...What about you?

hey
Tuesday, September 04 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yep, I went to Tulane. I see that you went to UNC. Never been to Chapel Hill, but I hear it is a great place be for 4 years in college. The college basketball fans seem to love it :)

Cold WUSTL
Thursday, January 24 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm not ready for winter. I went to the ASD in February and it was iced over. Still, I'm excited about starting in the Fall. Maybe we can have an unseasonably warm November and December to welcome us to the Midwest.

WashU
Thursday, August 23 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on WashU! Looks like I should see you there in the fall!

Mark Roth
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey man, I assume you're Howard, Mark's friend. I saw you at ASD. So you're going to WashU for sure, also? I look forward to seeing you there!

going
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

to st louis at the end of may to look around for an apt. i'm going to be in europe all summer, so i've got to go early. you know, just trying to get somewhere close to campus (walkable so i dont have to buy a $400 parking pass). you?

Yea, but...
Tuesday, July 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yea, getting accepted there is cool. However, the money offered to me at IIT and the sweet ass biotech program there has me won over. I have committed there and already been approved for hella finacial aid. I am going to tear a new ass hole in this law school shit. you just wait. good luck to ya. If you ever run across me your going to need it.

*Does the WUSTL*
Saturday, January 26 2008 at 07:00 PM

Sup uber d00der: Congrats on teh WUSTL! Maybe we'll be in the same section.
