Refunds
Friday, March 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

In at my #1! Does anyone know if refunds are typical when applications are withdrawn pre-decision?

congrats on minnesota
Tuesday, March 07 2006 at 07:00 PM

were you deferred before being accepted to UMN?

Minnesota
Friday, March 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! I was not deferred by MN, probably because I applied so late.

Thanks

I honestly have no idea why some low schools, see HAMLINE are rejecting me. Only thing I can think is that I was put on academic probabtion my first semester for F's because I dropped out of school. Or maybe my PS just wasn't liked at certain schools. I am just as puzzled as you are.

Rejected at Georgia. Screw the Bulldogs.

hey

When are you expecting to hear back from Vanderbilt?

Saturday, December 17 2005 at 07:00 PM

Yea Minnesota! I look forward to meeting you in the fall :)

MN it is for me too. See you in the fall. Are you going to admit day in April? btw - thanks for supporting comments and info in my profile. I'm pretty shocked at the starting ranges for IP, myself. Are you going to practice in TC or elsewhere?

UM, prepare?
Wednesday, February 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

Interesting comments about preparation vs. participation in the Law Review. The feedback I've gotten from virtually everyone is that preparing is somewhat foolish - I haven't been able to find anyone that could tell me what should be studied or reviewed in advance. One admission director quipped "find a patch of beach and a pile of trashy novels." At this point, I intend to rest during July and August and go in with a fresh mind...as best I can.

yeah I know

that really sucks when they do that!!

UMN interview
Sunday, March 19 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hi, I was wondering on the interview at UMN, how long after you applied did you do it? I applied quite late, ap not complete until 3/9, and I'm debating waiting until I recieve what I expect to be a deferral, or just do the interview. It's my number one hoice, and I pretty much desperately want to go there. Also, curious to hear specifics about the interview. Email me if you can, thanks and congrats!

aer
commute?
Wednesday, February 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

I'm staying put where I'm at, since I've been here for quite a while. The drive's not too bad (25 mins). How about you? Any idea where you're going to settle?

roseville vs. wdby
Wednesday, February 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

What's the advantage of rv as opposed to woodbury, other than shorter commute and lower rent? Just interested in your reasoning. sounds like there's enough for a beer discussion at some point, email me.

U of MN

Did the U of MN use your average LSAT or did they just look at your highest?
