A flattering message from J.D. ’08:

I think seeing you on campus is like being the presence of a celebrity. Hope you’re having a great day! – J***

And to tell the truth, I feel like a celebrity too.

I just want to let you know that your iniatives for Cornell like the ‘Call to Engagement’ are truly inspiring. I truly feel like I am in a place with the brightest future, and feel lucky to be part of it.Congratulations.

When you have friends in high places, the future is bright indeed.

I logged in to find: “You have a request from M*** C*** to add them as your significant other.” Cute.

Lehman hits 750 friends. It took 23 days to gain the last 250. That averages out to 10.9 daily, a significant improvement over the previous group of 250.

One of the more touching messages:

Hi President Lehman,

My name is M*** and I’m a junior in Arts and Sciences. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I would like to do once I graduate in 2006 and the possibility of law school has come up a number of times. I know you have a law degree and (I assume) you have worked on the more academic side of law. Would it be possible for me to meet with you to discuss your experiences in law school and beyond? I think it would really help me a lot.

Thanks so much,
M*** O*** ’06

And what if I am? Or not?
