main_chatroom Rooms: General Big mad Advice
  • 10:32 masterofallfoursections: same
  • 10:32 JealousImportedBEAR: Nice Nick!
  • 10:32 masterofallfoursections: my spam inbox is sparkling clean
  • 10:32 nota999: @EasyJuicySparrow: different strokes for different folks.
  • 10:33 CarelessGoose: @mayoicecream: i think the big q there is the word probably
  • 10:33 CarelessGoose: if you might go, what's the harm in sitting on a waitlist - it's not like you're taking away a spot from someone
  • 10:33 Cokezerofanatic: spam calls when you think it's a law school <<<<<<<<<<<
  • 10:33 masterofallfoursections: you guys how soon after being WL should we send a LOCI?
  • 10:33 Cokezerofanatic: I heard around the seat deposits
  • 10:33 JealousImportedBEAR: @mayoicecream: i'm withdrawing from schools I know I won't go to after deposit deadlines over my current options. I'd say only do it if you're sure
  • 10:34 Cokezerofanatic: planning on submitting mine to UCLA the day of seat deposits
  • 10:34 JealousImportedBEAR: @masterofallfoursections: I think common wisdom is close to deposit deadlines
  • 10:34 alegal: i have sent one right after the email and will resend around deposit deadlines
  • 10:34 mayoicecream: @CarelessGoose: yeah, I think for places like Mich or Penn though, I like 99% will not go even if I get in off the waitlist, just because I want to start looking for places to live and planning the move (presumably to Chicago) and wouldnt want to undo all of that.
  • 10:35 alegal: yea my waitlists in nyc give me migraines bc I will never find an apartment
  • 10:35 EasyJuicySparrow: @nota999: just trying to save the world with my superior taste
  • 10:35 mayoicecream: @JealousImportedBEAR: Thanks, yeah I'm just really bad with decisions abuot my own life lol, so it's tough to be "sure" but I'm as sure as I can be
  • 10:35 nota999: That's my thing, I got an A before I got any WLs, so I never had any intentions of waiting for any WLs. Wouldn't be fair to me or my cat to suddenly change plans on a dime because a different school accepted me.
  • 10:35 FertileSecretiveUguisu: my cycle is over!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • 10:36 nota999: @FertileSecretiveUguisu: OH SHIT CONGRATS!!
  • 10:36 SplendidManiacalMoose: me once a month
  • 10:36 mayoicecream: @nota999: so true, my poor cat!
  • 10:36 SplendidManiacalMoose: congrats!!!!!
  • 10:36 mayoicecream: @FertileSecretiveUguisu: congrats!!!
  • 10:36 FertileSecretiveUguisu: thank you!!!!!!!!!!
  • 10:36 nota999: @EasyJuicySparrow: I'm about to cause you pain, because I'm totally happy with a bag of bready grocery store bagels and a mug of instant coffee lol
  • 10:36 TheSplit: @FertileSecretiveUguisu: congrats!!
  • 10:37 EasyJuicySparrow: @nota999: may god have mercy on you
  • 10:37 JAlfredPrufrock: i'm with nota on the bagels
  • 10:38 JAlfredPrufrock: but not on the coffee
  • 10:38 WastefulDelicateEchidna: guys, how are you deciding how much debt a T14 is worth?
  • 10:38 JAlfredPrufrock: i only use instant coffee for fraps
  • 10:38 EasyJuicySparrow: y'all theres a better way. step out of the darkness into the light
  • 10:38 JAlfredPrufrock: i've only had dunks bagels
  • 10:38 NooThisIsPatrick: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: total cost of attendance + job prospects + length of payment
  • 10:38 JAlfredPrufrock: because i worked there and they were free
  • 10:39 nota999: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: It depends a lot on your goals. I'm not biglaw focused, so I'm doing what I can to avoid taking debt that makes me reliant on that biglaw salary.
  • 10:39 StingyFertileMeerkat: @FertileSecretiveUguisu: congrats from a fellow fertile!!!! you did it!!
  • 10:39 EasyJuicySparrow: @JAlfredPrufrock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSvNhxKJJyU
  • 10:39 FertileSecretiveUguisu: <3 <3 <3
  • 10:39 RampantSoggySwan: @EasyJuicySparrow: All I see is a BU recruitment video
  • 10:40 nota999: And, in my defense, I recognize that on some objective level instant coffee is "worse" than normal coffee. But it's a really comforting and nostalgic taste for me, since it reminds me of good times studying abroad in undergrad and when I was still hopeful and not disillusioned with my first grad school experience.
  • 10:40 nota999: Plus it's cheap af
  • 10:40 FinancialEsq: anyone know if this predictor is accurate? https://mylsn.info/h49mne/#
  • 10:40 LegallyNotBlonde: ahhh pre disillusioned... those were the days
  • 10:42 RampantSoggySwan: @FertileSecretiveUguisu: now that your cycle is over, what're you thinking?
  • 10:42 NooThisIsPatrick: best cup of coffee I've ever had was instant while I was on a military exercise and it was freezing cold. so whenever I have instant coffee it takes me back to that moment too
  • 10:42 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @nota999 generally what are you hoping to do if not BL?
  • 10:43 nota999: Broadly, PI. More specifically, worker/union side labor & employment law.
  • 10:43 WastefulDelicateEchidna: Okay hype, I'm also shooting for PI, but the unicorn stuff
  • 10:45 nota999: But yeah, for that reason I'm hoping to minimize my debt. That includes shooting for the highest scholarship amount at GULC I can, limiting my spending on housing/food where I can, and putting away half of my paychecks right now while I'm still living with my folks and working full time.
  • 10:47 WastefulDelicateEchidna: Makes a ton of sense. I'm still waiting to get my fin.aid offer from Berkeley, but I'm trying to suss out how much debt I'd be willing to take on
  • 10:49 nota999: I've heard to try to keep it around the salary you anticipate making out of school, but it's definitely something you should look a lot into and crunch the numbers on.
  • 10:49 nota999: i.e. don't take out 200k in debt unless you anticipate making 200k once you graduate, etc.
  • 10:52 WastefulDelicateEchidna: That's helpful advice. I feel like even $100k in debt will be a reach for my initial starting salary
  • 10:52 mayoicecream: I'm really struggling to decide bc I got incredibly scholly offers from outside T14, but no word yet on schollys from my 2 T14 As (Duke & NU)
  • 10:53 GingerAle365: Anybody else withdrawing from schools they've been ghosted at?
  • 10:53 Troopayellowsno: Do the different blocks, UR1/UR2, fill in automatically with the status checker or do you have to do it manually?
  • 10:53 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @mayo that's my problem! My choice is either full ride + summer funding at T20 or a big ole question mark at Berk
  • 10:53 AnemoiBoi: Financial Esq, I think that predictor is probably not inaccurate...Maybe a little forgiving
  • 10:53 JuicemanOJ: just submitted FAFSA, it didnt ask me if I am a Veteran will they know this by searching my social?
  • 10:53 nota999: @GingerAle365: Did that yesterday. Once there was no way they could offer me an apology scholarship big enough to leapfrog them over GULC, I withdrew.
  • 10:53 seaturtledog: part of the reason im struggling is cause even with in state tuition at asu, its still a decent amount of debt, and is one of the reasons im considering r and r-ing for a better scholly
  • 10:53 GingerAle365: @Troopayellowsno: you have to fill them out!
  • 10:53 mayoicecream: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: I think if youre thinking PI I would prob take the full ride to T20 it sounds dope
  • 10:54 NooThisIsPatrick: anyone here set on ND? I love the ranking, job opportunities, and the scholarship they offered me but I've heard south bend isn't really a city you want to be in
  • 10:54 GingerAle365: @nota999: honestly might do the same rn, I'm pretty set on NYU
  • 10:54 Troopayellowsno: @GingerAle365: thanks!!! When it goes red but nothing seems to change does that mean you would be in the next review?
  • 10:54 nota999: Certainly couldn't go wrong with a full ride to a T20, but as long as that offer isn't exploding anytime soon, no harm waiting to see if Berk gets you something.
  • 10:54 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @mayo my weird niche problem is that I do a ton on open-source investigations/int. human rights, and Berk is the leader on that work
  • 10:54 WastefulDelicateEchidna: hope I didn't just dox myself too hard
  • 10:55 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @nota the T20 offer deadline is April 1 RIP
  • 10:55 FinancialEsq: @AnemoiBoi: awesome ty. def anticipating inflation in#s
  • 10:55 GingerAle365: @Troopayellowsno: most of the time, yes!
  • 10:55 nota999: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: Well, that's a whole month for Berk to get back to you!
  • 10:55 GingerAle365: And if it turns red again, safe to assume its the next review phase
  • 10:55 FrankieTheTankie: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: how long did it take for you to get a decision from Berk?
  • 10:55 Troopayellowsno: @GingerAle365: thanks so much!
  • 10:55 FrankieTheTankie: Did you go UR2 quickly?
  • 10:55 GingerAle365: @Troopayellowsno: np :)
  • 10:55 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @FrankieTheTankie: I applied 12/4 and got in 1/26
  • 10:55 My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: @GingerAle365: hi it is your old pal
  • 10:56 My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: I change my name a lot for fun
  • 10:56 nota999: but if they don't, then hey a full ride at a T20 is an excellent result no matter what you want to do (except maybe, like, academia)
  • 10:56 mayoicecream: hmmmm yeah I mean having resources in your field of interest is a huge draw - if you already ]have the A from Berk tho maybe you could explain the situation to their Admissions/Fin Aid, the deadline youre under, and how you'd much prefer to go Berk but Fin Aid is a deciding factor
  • 10:56 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @nota999 thank you for putting things into perspective
  • 10:56 mayoicecream: Idk at all about negotiations but its not like theyre going to withdraw your A for communicating your situation
  • 10:56 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @mayoicecream: that's a good idea
  • 10:57 mayoicecream: I'd maybe wait a little closer to the deadline so you dont seem overly anxious but I dont think theres necessarily harm in explaining the bind
  • 10:57 GingerAle365: @My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: omg hi new account???
  • 10:57 GingerAle365: @My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: missed u!
  • 10:58 FrankieTheTankie: @WastefulDelicateEchidna: I'm sorry for the annoying questions but how long after applying at berk did you go UR2? Trying to understand if I should let myself feel some cautious form of hope or not lol
  • 10:58 My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: @GingerAle365: same account - I switch the name up based on my mood (<3 I will always be Georgie)
  • 10:59 GingerAle365: @My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: oh wow didn't know that was even possible! Georgie 4lyf <3
  • 10:59 hotchiwitchi: what are folks expecting today wave wise?
  • 10:59 QuietFortunateRottweiler: are we expecting any t14 decisions today..?
  • 10:59 WastefulDelicateEchidna: @FrankieTheTankie: UR on 1/11, UR2 1/19
  • 10:59 My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: R u going to withdrawal from Vanderbilt :`(
  • 11:00 WastefulDelicateEchidna: Also not annoying at all
  • 11:00 FrankieTheTankie: Awesome, thanks!
  • 11:00 GingerAle365: @My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: yeah just did :'(
  • 11:00 My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: nooooooooooooooooo
  • 11:00 GingerAle365: I feel like they're just gonna hit me with that late R
  • 11:00 TabooCombativeSkunk: this might be a stupid question, but do admissions committees do anything other than admissions?
  • 11:01 nota999: With how slow they're going, they better not be
  • 11:01 nota999: that said, I don't know for certain
  • 11:01 hotchiwitchi: sighh
  • 11:02 GlisteningReflectiveSetter: What days have Fordham been sending As? Monday/Tuesday right?
  • 11:03 NicklausCopernicus18: Hoping for a CLS A wave today but who knows
  • 11:03 NicklausCopernicus18: always hoping for Vandy money to come through as well
  • 11:04 iwishiwasellewoods: @GlisteningReflectiveSetter: Yes but yesterday was a really bad WL/R day for fordham
  • 11:04 iwishiwasellewoods: So hoping today is an A wave
  • 11:04 NooThisIsPatrick: "early next week" from them last week
  • 11:04 NooThisIsPatrick: I definitely think Tuesday counts as early in the week
  • 11:05 NicklausCopernicus18: @NooThisIsPatrick: you mean vandy for money?
  • 11:05 NicklausCopernicus18: i hadn't heard that
  • 11:05 NooThisIsPatrick: yes
  • 11:05 NicklausCopernicus18: Oh interesting
  • 11:05 NicklausCopernicus18: cool
  • 11:05 GlisteningReflectiveSetter: @iwishiwasellewoods: ugh yes here's to hoping
  • 11:05 GlisteningReflectiveSetter: !
  • 11:06 NicklausCopernicus18: yeah hopefully today, you can theoretically stretch tomorrow if you want to be shifty lol
  • 11:06 NicklausCopernicus18: but fingers crossed today then
  • 11:08 brendog: gm all
  • 11:08 JealousImportedBEAR: they keep pushing it back I'm so annoyed
  • 11:08 brendog: by 2030 friday will count as midweek
  • 11:09 RampantSoggySwan: does Fordham go to UR or is an app alway just complete?/
  • 11:09 GlisteningReflectiveSetter: @RampantSoggySwan: complete! the date will just change
  • 11:09 RampantSoggySwan: Thanks!
  • 11:09 ThisIsAGoodUsername: ayeeeee mornin
  • 11:09 GlisteningReflectiveSetter: @RampantSoggySwan: np!
  • 11:11 Cokezerofanatic: how important do we think it is in scholarship negotiations to have aid offers elsewhere? is the leverage all that important?
  • 11:11 seaturtledog: hey those who got decisions from gw,what time did you get the decision
  • 11:12 ThisIsAGoodUsername: @cokezerofanatic yes. Negotiation is key and having the "well I got the Dean's Scholarship at X, what can you give me?" is key.
  • 11:12 My-tears-make-my-coffees-Americanos: @Cokezerofanatic: unless you have a significantly better school's acceptance, I would say scholarship is very important
  • 11:12 ThisIsAGoodUsername: if scholly is your end game, you'll want to leverage as much as you can
  • 11:12 AGFaith: @seaturtledog: My A came at like 12:50pm
  • 11:13 seaturtledog: @AGFaith: what time zone?
  • 11:13 AGFaith: @seaturtledog: EST
  • 11:13 seaturtledog: @AGFaith: thank yoou!!!!
  • 11:13 GreasyAloofSeahorse: Do you think i can negotiate with UCLA for more scholly money with a Fordham scholly offer?
  • 11:14 SneakySeahorse: I'd say yes, but I also don't know a whole lot tbh, bbut I don't see why not
  • 11:14 ThisIsAGoodUsername: @greasyaloofseahorse yes.
  • 11:15 ThisIsAGoodUsername: You can literally negotiate anything for anything. You can and you should
  • 11:15 GreasyAloofSeahorse: @ThisIsAGoodUsername: Thank you for the confidence boost!
  • 11:15 lawschool1day: @seaturtledog: as another data point, my decision email came around 5 EST
  • 11:16 ProductiveColorfulAngora: My GW A was around 5 too
  • 11:16 SneakySeahorse: when do yall recommend to start doing that? is it true that the longer you wait the more money there will be or...?
  • 11:16 GreasyAloofSeahorse: How long should you wait after receiving the offer?
  • 11:16 ThisIsAGoodUsername: I plan to negotiate as soon as I get the A from the school I want
  • 11:16 ThisIsAGoodUsername: so I can get stuff moving. I haven't done FAFSA (i'm trying SUPER HARD to not take on more student loan debt) so I need to get that info locked down
  • 11:17 Nomdeplume818: so what did i miss today
  • 11:17 SneakySeahorse: ahh okay
  • 11:17 seaturtledog: so basically i just need to be prepared for whenever
  • 11:17 PhillyMoo: Are the new CLS WL's holdovers from yesterday?
  • 11:17 seaturtledog: alright then
  • 11:17 Nomdeplume818: recap ?
  • 11:17 seaturtledog: this should be productive for me
  • 11:18 QuietFortunateRottweiler: ooo a cls a wave would be great...
  • 11:18 QuietFortunateRottweiler: not that i will be a part of it
  • 11:18 RuralSmoggyMastiff: Looks like it. According to the emails I got from Columbia when applying the status checker doesn't update to show your decision so I'm guessing everyone has to enter it on LSData themselves
  • 11:18 RuralSmoggyMastiff: Then again I haven't heard anything so who knows lol
  • 11:19 RuralSmoggyMastiff: But 73 WLs and 22 Rs from yesterday recorded on here must mean those were some massive waves yesterday
  • 11:20 PhillyMoo: This Cycle is truly so brutal
  • 11:21 sharpay: lol at risk of being That Guy, are we expecting nothing from Berk until next week?
  • 11:22 CEOofShotShooting: Lol at people still asking for wave predictions. I haven't seen an accurate one yet
  • 11:22 K-justwaiting: quick question...clearly this a self reporting website and it doesn't represent the entire applicant pool...so when you see a "wave" going on how many applicants to you speculate experienced that wave?
  • 11:22 K-justwaiting: hope that makes sense 🥺
  • 11:23 K-justwaiting: opp some typos sorry!
  • 11:23 GigiChula: It’s honestly so funny to me that everyone wants to get into T14 and I’m over here just trying to get into Denver or Oregon haha.
  • 11:23 CEOofShotShooting: 1/8- 1/4 depending on school.
  • 11:23 IcicleBumpkin: @K-justwaiting: that's the 64,000 dollar Q
  • 11:23 nota999: I think the estimate we determined based on previous years is to think that this site has ~1/4 of applicants on the higher ranking schools, and then that trails off as you go to the lower ranking ones.
  • 11:23 seaturtledog: whoa i am getting imposter syndrome looking at the spivey example of personal statements
  • 11:23 seaturtledog: mine are so robotic compared to that
  • 11:23 nota999: I haven't looked at any examples of other people's personal statements tbh
  • 11:24 CEOofShotShooting: Mine was very narrative
  • 11:24 IcicleBumpkin: building off nota, I think the percentage at the top schools is more like 1/3 this year
  • 11:24 seaturtledog: mine is not narrative at all and that worries me
  • 11:24 K-justwaiting: okay thanksssss!
  • 11:24 SneakySeahorse: i havent looked either i have always felt mine was subpar
  • 11:24 CEOofShotShooting: It makes you feel better I feel like I went way too narrative
  • 11:24 SneakySeahorse: i feel like adcomms love that though CEO
  • 11:24 brendog: lol just thinking of personal statements gives me the chills
  • 11:25 CEOofShotShooting: Maybe. I don't think I talked about going to law school like once to go to the very last paragraph
  • 11:25 SneakySeahorse: same taht was a terrible time
  • 11:25 SneakySeahorse: oh oop
  • 11:25 SneakySeahorse: eh as long as you had something traumatic you should be fine
  • 11:25 brendog: mine was all like, i used to want to be a race car driver now i want to be a race car LAWYER. let me in,
  • 11:25 SneakySeahorse: lmfaoooo
  • 11:25 SneakySeahorse: love that
  • 11:25 nota999: Mine is narrative-ish I guess? It's kinda like a summary of what I did after deciding I didn't want to do foreign policy, how I was considering seminary, and how similar desires to what made me want to go to seminary now are driving me to law school instead.
  • 11:25 K-justwaiting: did you guys write special paragraphs for each schools?
  • 11:25 GigiChula: I totally just killed the fact that I was URM and I could bring diversity into the field
  • 11:25 GigiChula: **milked not killed
  • 11:25 alegal: my narrative was that I never had a POC teacher and went back to my school district and got POC hired
  • 11:26 CEOofShotShooting: LOL I didn't talk about trauma. I talked about how hard the submarine force was I'd be a lawyer advocate for veterans rights
  • 11:26 K-justwaiting: I honestly didn't have much space. and I had the same @nota999
  • 11:26 brendog: yeah @k-justwaiting cut and paste city name type stuff
  • 11:26 IcicleBumpkin: @K-justwaiting: I did not. no school specific for anything
