devin gardner style. Go Blue.
No reason to attend the Detroit College of Law (no, it will never be MSU law school). There's many other decent law schools across the country to attend. I know, from experience.
You might want to move the letter off of the wood desk before setting fire to it.
thats a waste of 35 dollars.
Why did you apply if you weren't planning to ever attend? Don't get me wrong, Whoo and all that, but DG got a letter because he is awesome. Unless you are the lawyer equivalent of DG at football, I'm not clear.
You do realize how much people get spammed before applying to college, right? I probably got at least one letter from MSU, OSU, ND, etc. They all went straight to the trash, of course.
When I got into MLaw, I rescinded all my outstanding apps. Might be the same deal.
ignore, comment deleted.
It could be that MSU was his safety school and he got into UMich :)
They've supplemented the material with multiple viewings of Legally Blonde 1 and 2.
Did not apply. Received this letter as an inquiry of interest on their part. Definitely not my doing.
Very good then!
I'm insulted that you think I would ever apply to that garbage school!
I got mail from Sparty before I started applying. They sent me an application fee waiver or something promotional. So it might not be a waste of money.
Edit: this was supposed to be a reply to Blazefire above.
you burned the letter as if it were a redshirt?
I recall a picture of DG burning an Ohio State envelope and posting it during his recruitment.
I do believe. Come on as a mod you should know this ;)
Didn't Gardner burn his MSU offer?
Maybe but here's the OSU image:
Let me google that one for you :P
Looks like a MySpace Angle to me.
(jokes; queme las cartas*, my friends)
* - dunno if correct; took Latin, not Spanish.
Ha! I got one of those too. "we want to wish you the best of luck during your upcoming application cycle and hope that you consider MSU law as a possible destination." Or some crap like that.
It was either that or burn couches for the next several years.
Couches, ladies and gentlemen.
what have the couches ever done to East Lansing to deserve such treatment?
I sent back the college recruiting letter I got from Ohio State return-to-sender. Included a nice note on the back of the envelope telling them where they could put it.
Hah, I threw away my MSU letter immediately when I was in high school. I didn't know I'd be accepted to UM yet, but I was ready to go anywhere else.
Wish I could have done the same to my MSU Law letter. Unfortunately, I'm now a 1L at MSU. It's a daily reminder that I should have studied harder during my time at Michigan. I still consider it a private school that just shares the MSU name and resources, as do many others. I also tell myself that despite the 'MSU' name attached to it, it is still a decent school. Not everyone can get into Michigan Law, and for those that don't but want to stay in the state of Michigan, MSU Law ≥ Wayne State, and for me, Okemos > Detroit.
If you bust your butt and are near the top of your class, you can transfer to M. Michigan takes a decent number of transfer students, but they're usually good students from laterally ranked schools, or the top of the class variety.
and I plan on applying to transfer this spring.
that you think Okemos is better than Detroit. This could very well be my homerism because I'm from Detroit and love the city, but I don't consider them in the same league. But to each his own.
Of course Okemos>Detroit. All Detroit has is the Red Wings, Tigers, Lions, their various stadiums, a bunch of restaurants, the DSO, and a couple of colleges. Meanwhile, Okemos has, uh.... uh.... uh......
Well, Okemos is still > Detroit.
Is MSU Law > Wayne State? I was always under the impression that Wayne State's Law School was held in high regard w/in the state.
I suppose I should clarify; living in Okemos > commuting to Detroit for class every day. Most WSU law students, according to their Student Affairs office, drive 20-40 minutes to school each day from the surrounding suburbs, as decent housing nearby can be expensive/difficult to find. So in that regard, Okemos was more appealing than Detroit.
As far as MSU law ≥ Wayne, I guess it depends on who you ask. After doing a good deal of research, visiting both schools, and talking to alums, I got the impression that MSU was at least as good as Wayne, and continuing to Improve. MSU did have the highest Michigan Bar passage rate out of all the Michigan schools this past summer, fwiw. Plus, over half of my Professors this semester are Michigan and Michigan Law graduates themselves, so it can't be all bad, right?
Being a Law Prof is such a sweet gig. "Teach a class, publish a little and make a lot of money. Going to an elite law school (think Harvard, Yale, Michigan, NYU) is pretty much a pre-req for becoming one. That and having a high class rank.
Okemos has Chieftans
Number of MSU Law grads in my firm, internationally: 1
Burning a MSU Law Admittance letter AND a Lloyd Brady Avatar? You sir... you win.
When applying for my residency, I applied to OSU among many other places (around 65). I got an interview offer from them, scheduled it, then never showed up for it. Not exactly a professional thing to do, but oh well :)
i sent Braxton Miller a $1,000 check with a letter expressing my interest in representing him in negotiations with the NFL once he leaves OSU. If he cashes it, we're golden in 2012!
