I guess that's a little confusing. They don't have an official early application, I just sent my applications in so that they would be complete before November, and am taking advantage of the early application "advantage."

for the congrats and same to you! Cornell is a slightly better school than UCLA, but I'm more interested in working in California than New York, so it makes it a lot closer. Plus, even with cost of living, UCLA is a good bit cheaper than Cornell. I'd be thrilled to be at either place and my remark was basically surprise at how well my cycle had gone in general. Best of luck!

  • Thursday, December 20 2007 at 01:52 PM

Congrats on the scholarship to the UofMN, and to your other cycle successes. In all honesty, I'm leaning towards not re-taking the test. As you said, the UofM is a great school, and the TCs is a great community (something I know well from personal experience). How about you? Not to dissuade you from the UMN, but Cornell is "ranked" higher, and I hear Ithaca is a great community (though a bit difficult in the winter--not unlike the TCs). Judging by your LSAT score, you are far better situated than I in being able to hold out successfully for some of these higher ranked schools. Good luck with that!

Cornell is my first choice b/c its an Ivy League school, pure and simple. The amount of prestige added to my degree would be substantial and I could easily take my degree to any big city I wanted to. The only other Ivy League schools are "out of my league" so to speak. I'm also a big fan of New York (state). What was your GPA if you don't mind me asking. Looks like our LSAT scores are both in the upper 1/4th.

No I didn't mention it in my PS. I was always brought up to believe that my "disability," as it is labeled, was just an interesting part of who I am, and not something to benefit from. The gentleman who helped me with my pre-law advising stressed I should use it as an "advantage," and I really thought that was stupid and offensive on his part. I am probably going to end up wrong on that idea, but the way he brought it up constantly made me not put it in. You got accepted into some great schools, good luck with Georgetown!!

  • Monday, February 04 2008 at 10:05 AM

Funny you should ask...i have NO idea what to do. The more i think about the money, the more i think i should take it. I've never been to Ithaca, and I'm going to visit Duke and Michigan as well, maybe that'll help decide things? I feel really conflicted on what would really be the best option long term..a highly ranked school or a free (still well-regarded) school. Are you leaning either way??

  • My GMU rejection
  • Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 08:39 AM

That surprised me as well. I don't take anything for granted, obviously, but I figured I'd be a competitive candidate at GMU. It didn't take them long to make up their minds, either. I guess maybe I waited too long to apply? I also had one semester where I threw up 3 F's and a D (my grades have been A's and B's since), and maybe that scared them off? Who knows.

  • Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 08:20 PM

WUStL gave you teh NASTY scholarship. I think I just got into Michigan. i'm probably not getting into Col/NYU. Been dinged from Chi/Penn. Still waiting for UVA. If I get in, it'll come down to UVA/Mich, with money a big factor. If no UVA, then Michigan, no doubt. Of course, like I said, i THINK i got in. im still skeptical

- gjrmf
  • re: oops
  • Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 12:23 PM

WUSTL was a hard decision. When I began the process, I didn't think any school could have swayed me from going to Duke if I got in there. Aside from the amazing scholarship, my visit to WUSTL really sealed the deal for me. The campus is nice- it reminded me a lot of Princeton. The law school itself is a very nice gothic building and there is a second law school building being completed next door. All of the people I met were very friendly and the professors were so engaging. I don't have tons of money, so going to a top 25 law school for free was a huge deal for me. You have so many great choices. Good luck with you decision!

I've been at Cornell for the last two years. While we love it here, we are pretty far from my fiances family. They live in Denver, so somewhere closer to the West would be a good choice. The money from Wash U is really tempting. Going to visit there soon. USC would be a good choice if they offered money also. U leaning towards Cornell?

  • Decision
  • Tuesday, February 12 2008 at 04:24 AM

Doubtful. Considering I'm not intent on working in New York, it would probably take considerable scholarship (which obviously isn't going to happen) for me to turn down a full ride at a top 20. Vandy is about the only one I'm really anxious about hearing from... and they're taking forever.

I'm shifting between GW, WUSTL, and Georgetown part-time. This would be so easy if I had gotten in to Georgetown full-time. I really like DC, but I would so much rather go to Georgetown than GW. I didn't apply to Cornell because I wanted to be in a city for grad school. I spent 5 years in rural VA, and although I loved it, I want to be able to go to an MLB game and a legit steak-house every so often. Hope that makes sense and doesn't sound too selfish

  • Why Cornell, you ask?
  • Thursday, February 28 2008 at 09:57 AM

Top 14, man! My philosophy is generally go to the highest ranked school you get accepted to (unless the difference is really small, like giving up a couple of spots to take a huge scholarship.) There's a big difference between no. 19 and no. 13, and of course there's a big bright line between T14 and "the rest." Now for me, WashU was the highest-ranked school I've gotten into (and, in all likelihood, will get into.) Therefore, my desire for your scholarship (or any portion of it) burns with the heat of a thousand suns. Won't you, who sits comfortably within the high walls of the T14 citadel, throw your table scraps to those of us left out in the hostile wastelands? DISCLAIMER: I am extremely shallow and will probably go to the highest ranked school that takes me. I understand that some people actually factor in geographic considerations, campus tolerability, and other factors. Those people, of course, are crazy. However, they do exist, and you may be one of them. ;)

You are correct, sir. Although I did consider trying to find work as a district attorney. If I were gonna do that I'd probably go to UNLV (my undergraduate alma mater) on the 75% scholarship. Then I decided against it. I noticed that Wash U didn't have any students from UNLV (or the state of Nevada, for that matter.) In fact, most places don't. I'm going to the best school I can, and I'ma represent Vegas. Oh, also I'm gonna make a crap-load of money. Go Rebels!

  • Saturday, March 01 2008 at 04:56 PM

^Addendum to the above Wash U has no UNLV students according to the class of 2010 profile on their website. I'm going to go ahead and assume that they don't have any in the classes of 2009 or 2008 either, because the Nevada educational system is, to paint with a broad brush, of questionable quality. ... Except for me, I mean. I'm brilliant. ;D

  • Wednesday, April 09 2008 at 06:32 PM

Ya know, it was a hard choice only because Cornell is an Ivy, and had nothing to do with money (though, had they given me twice as much, I couldn't have said no). I only buy the T14 to an extent, and since they're in upstate NY, I really just didn't want to be there...no matter how beautiful the law school is. My gf, who is going wherever I go, is from upstate NY and she would not have been happy there. It's depressing and I don't want her to be unhappy, even though she was willing to go wherever. So it came down to just loving Vanderbilt. I really, really loved Nashville and the people I met at the ASW. The job prospects aren't likely SO different that I will regret my decision, so weather wins out. That said, I'll drop my pants and run to Michigan as soon as they come knockin' (*crosses fingers*). I think there is too much of a difference between the two to make the same choice (Vandy). Where are you leaning?

How does depositing work when you have all of law school paid for? I've wondered this. I am just supposing they give it back to you if you matriculate, but I don't actually know. Also, I thought their deposit deadline past on the first. In any case, good luck with your decision.

Thanks! Congratulations to you too, and on the $ as well!

Shit, I can't believe I didn't tell you this already. It isn't that I forgot, but that I didn't realize that it'd be useful for you to know. You should call Cornell and ask them to match your UT scholarship. When I asked them for $$, the only letter they cared to see was UT (for whatever crazy reason, Vanderbilt didn't phase them). Hopefully it's not too late...

  • Cornell & Vandy
  • Wednesday, April 16 2008 at 01:56 PM

Yeah, Vandy it is. Pocket Cornell withdrawal as of yesterday. As for Cornell's $$, glad you already did that. I guess they liked my 1 point higher LSAT more than your significantly better GPA. I honestly have a hard time wrapping my head around it, but it probably all comes down to quartiles and their desire to have 169 as their upper Q.

  • Saw your comment
  • Thursday, April 17 2008 at 05:42 AM

I saw your comment on my account and just thought I would let you know that I chose Vanderbilt over Cornell, and I mostly based that decision on location.

Did you finalize anything? I am about to give up on a decision Boston, Georgia, or Vandy. They are just taking too long lol.

  • Cornell eh? o rly?
  • Tuesday, April 22 2008 at 11:07 AM

Sup d00d. I see you've pinned the little "A" next to Cornell. Have you made up your mind? If so, what made you decide on Cornell?

Yeaaah. I changed my education info on my facebook to U of I for law school. Its pretty much official now lol. I wish Vanderbilt had the decency to formally reject me. Sheesh. What part of Illinois are you from? All my family is from Chicago. First generation Texan here. I would like to end up in Chicago though and I think UIUC would be great for that!

  • Tuesday, April 22 2008 at 01:41 PM

jealous about Cornell. A free ride from WUSTL is hard to pass up, but you can't beat T14 + cash+ not having to go to far.

Thanks man, no sweat about your post - I was REALLY REALLY surprised as I thought for sure I wouldn't even get a second look. Perhaps I will see you there next year if they show more mercy on me but I'm not counting on anything. Looks like UCONN is the most likely place I will be! Keep in touch! Drew

  • Friday, April 25 2008 at 11:53 AM

Yeah, they just offered their aid package and I think I'm gonna take it. It's tough to turn Vandy down. Both are great schools.

Maybe..I'm going to check out Ithaca this weekend. Hopefully I'll have more clarity after I see the school. It's between Vandy, USC, and Cornell. I see you've made your decision - that must feel great. Congrats!

On your final decision! I just made mine too. Such a relief to be done after almost two years though. I am sure you feel me! lol. Good luck with everything! : ) ~Hailey

I really only applied there because my best friend from undergrad was a 1L there this year, and once I told her that I didn\'t want to live in the cold, she was pretty understanding.

DePaul before Loyola Chicago because I was ranking my choices and I had to assign a number somewhere. Truth be told to me they were about even. Pretty much a moot point anyway since I\'m going to Drake. Congrats and best wishes at Cornell!

haha, thanks! yeah, i was hoping to be able to show off my extensive north face gear from ugrad, but alas, nashville will suffice. good luck in ithaca, and enjoy the splendid gothic architecture of myron taylor hall! perhaps our paths will cross in the post-law-school realm known only as BIGLAW :-o ;-)

  • Tuesday, August 19 2008 at 06:35 PM

I actually really loved Kent, so it was a hard decision to make, especially since I had already started there. But Northwestern is an amazing school, and I would always regret it if I didn\'t go. I\'m not sure what got me in. I do have a lot of soft factors, but that didn\'t seem to matter before, so I\'m surprised it did now. Still, I\'m grateful and very excited! Best of luck in Ithaca!

  • emory acceptance/scholarship
  • Sunday, September 14 2008 at 02:27 PM

Hey, don't know if you remember this or not but I was wondering if you got your scholarship offer from Emory with your acceptance or if it came a significant amount of time after. Just wondering because our numbers seem really similar and I plan on applying pretty soon. Thanks!

  • lol
  • Monday, September 29 2008 at 05:11 AM

I would, but unfortunately I can't handle the NY weather. To be honest I probably can't handle it at some of the other places I'm applying to, but I'm more likely to go to those schools if I get accepted. I just don't want to apply to Cornell and potentially steal a spot from someone else who really wants to go. Thanks for the info!
