Re: Class of 2021: It's so c0Ld in the D.

Some kind reddit user pointed out that the new Macbook Pros w/ the Touch ID are banned from some bar exams - including New York and California. Here's the link - http://fortune.com/2017/01/31/apple-macbook-pro-bar-exam/. Just FYI for those of you considering getting that model. I probably still am b...

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

Hey Nebby - what's the best way to go about contacting those who have already transferred from current 1L school to potential/desired transfer school? Asking for a friend and not as a 0L who's scared to post this question.

Re: NYU c/o 2021 Applicants (2017-2018 cycle)

Got dinged, but not unexpected. Below medians, and got The Email back in February. For you LSL peeps in the future, let me say this: The Hold Tight Email is NOT indicative of your chances AT ALL. You can be accepted/rejected/waitlisted - who knows! The Email is just an email, THAT'S IT.

Re: Waitlists and Loans

Not stupid or uninformed to ask at all!! To my understanding, federal loans aren't technically distributed until the first day of class anyway. They're pretty easily transferable to whichever school you end up attending. If waitlist school costs more, then the cap on your federal loans is increased ...

Is this WL wave just happening throughout the course of the day?!

edit to avoid double posting: there's a user on reddit saying if you didn't go past UR1, then at this point UVA is full and is WLing everyone regardless of stats. Is this true?

What did you guys think of the event?
I had a good time! I didn’t speak to that many people but I love that each person was very clear that Emory people just don’t apply to NY BigLaw, but it is a very attainable goal if they want it.

Michigan is the only school that sent me a ding via snail mail - it said so on the status checker first but they sent the letter too.
