Was told via email before applying by Minnesota, that they would only look at my higher LSAT score because it was more than 4 pts higher.

Brooklyn told me via snail mail, that in March they would inform me if I was going to receive any scholarship money.

Cardozo said in their wait list letter, that I might have a better shot of being accepted off the wait list if I considered their program that starts in May instead of August.

Hofstra mailed me a t-shirt a few weeks after I got an acceptance letter with a scholarship offer.

Minnesota deferred me, said I did not make it in on the first wave of admission. I sent them a letter telling them I was still interested.

I sent letters to schools I had not heard from yet that I was still interested.

Brooklyn 2 months after they accepted me sent me a scholarship offer of $15.1k/yr.

After being deferred by Minnesota in January, they accepted me in March. I sent them a nice letter after I was deferred in January.

oops. that should've been my name, not mileman.

let's try this one more time..

i'd take heart that you haven't yet been deferred by wash u. they seem to be handing those out like candy. but it also seems like they operate along the lines of >165 = admit,

oops... no NWU...

My mistake, no Northwestern rejected my ass... But I went to visit Minnesota last week, looks like I might be headed there.

Hey! Congrats on getting into Washington University! We have simular numbers and I'm on the Washington University waitlist. They're my number one choice and I'd love to attend this fall. Can you send me an e-mail with some information on what you did to get in? I'd love your help and I'll buy you dinner this fall at Wash U! =)

hi japper, you may have been in the same bind as me - choosing between Wash U and American Okay you are from CT, I am from the east coast too - so tell me did you consider going to american? I am interested in international law but am nervous about the quality of american overall - wash u is great, but they do not have comparable int\\\'l law classes. Another consideration is that I would like to be in NYC after graduation - Given these interests, any isights?

hi
Saturday, November 12 2005 at 07:00 PM

i just realized that already asked you this question - in that case, can you elaborate on your decision, interests and thouht process in making this decision?

hi
Saturday, November 12 2005 at 07:00 PM

do you want to practice anywhere specific after graduation? Was money a factor in making your decision?
