Title: PENN Admit Weekend, March 24 - 26th - who's going? (plus reviews)
Post by: "Legapp" Stands for "Legal Application" on March 13, 2006, 08:59:32 AM
I'll be there; just wondering if any other LSDers want to meet up!

I chose Group 1 cuz' I didn't want to sit thru the class and then the panel.  I thought I would need a bit of a break and the walking tour would provide that.  That's just me tho'.  ;D

Gosh, I don't even remember what I selected, but I hope it was group 1 -- I already went to Con Law on the preview day.

I'll be staying with my sis and her fiancee in Center City.  Completely coincidentally, my parents will be in town that weekend to meet my sister's fiancee's parents--weird, right? They might come to the faculty reception on Friday.

For Georgetown, I made a little facebook with everyone's pictures, screen name and real name... it worked pretty well for finding people.  I'll do it again, if you guys want.  I'm  totally expecting Shellbell to look like Rory Gilmore  ;)

I'll be there.  And I'm pretty sure I chose the mock class.  Are you guys opting to stay with current students?

I don't think that I could really afford it another way.  IMHO, I think it would be just a better experience to stay with another student. Esp. since I know next to nothing about Philly and if the student is a 1L or 2L, you already have a contact if you go there in the fall  ;D .

Score! I get to hang out with legapp again! I forget what group I'm in, is there a way to check. And I requested to stay with a student and haven't heard from anyone yet. Has anyone else heard?

No, but I did get an email on Friday (I think) saying that our student host would be contacting us soon.  Hopefully we'll hear something by the end of the week.  

Are most of you planning to be there for the Thursday night social thing?

Sadly, I'm not leaving until after work on Thursday, so I won't be able to make it. UNLESS... maybe I should take that day off, too... wanna use up all my vacation time before I quit  ;)

I'm taking Thursday and Friday off of work -- so I'll be at the social -- I want to get as much of a feel for Philly as I can --- and we should all for sure hang out!

I signed up to stay with a student too -- I'm sure we'll hear this week or beginning of next.

Anyone taking the Amtrak from NYC?

I get way too bus-sick taking the bus -- and I'm getting a travel subsidy anyway -- the train is under 100 bucks...

I also love the train -- I only took it once to DC and fell in love with it.  I'm a dork, I know.

I'm driving in on Thursday from Ohio, but I think instead of going to the social I'm going to do a preview on some apartment communities I'm looking at.

Has anybody in the mock class received the readings yet?  After four years out, I am a little out of practice on this school thing so I figured I'd better do the mock class over sitting through another lecture.

Here's to being four years out!  Same here... although luckily, I get free classes where I work.  It was strange the first time I went back to a classroom (especially since I was older than everyone else).  But strange in a good way.  Work totally makes you appreciate school  ;)

So does everyone want to try to meet up and say hello at the breakfast on Friday?  I'll be getting there round about 9:50...

A social is a social, so you may not care... but my ex-BF who lives in Philly almost snorted his 7-Up through his nose when I told him where they are taking us for the Thursday night social.

To quote him, "It was a sort of cool place to hang out... in high school." He also said you can only drink in a certain area of the place, which doesn't include the actual bowling alley.

Bowling with no beer?? Limited drinking area? High-schoolers? This all adds up to a big ol' "See ya on Friday morning!" for me.  :-*

I live in philly and will not be at the penn event.  But I love penn law, and I've been to one of their mock classes (taught by professor Morse).  Pretty fun stuff.

I got the call, but didn't get to answer --- she left this really long sort of confusing voicemail.  Its a nice gesture though, to ask for our preferences.  Could I tell her, "fix me up with the hottest guy there please?" :-)

I'll be at Penn for the weekend as well.  Was there an email sent about the Thursday social?  When I RSVPed, it just said "Social Event" or something else vague like that.

Oh, and I'll be doing the mock class too. Anyone else feel inordinately excited about next week?  I'm practically hopping, jones-ing so bad!  :)

There's stuff before the bowling thing that is probably more important RSVP-wise. You're paired up with a "student host" at 6:00 for a tour, and then you somehow get to the bowling place. The bowling thing is from 7:00 - 9:00 and I'm sure you could just show up (although it looks like dinner is included, so they may want an accurate head-count). It's all on the admitted student website, and it's one of the boxes you can check on the RSVP form.

so, I'm assuming jeans are ok for bowling? I mean, i can't imagine trying to be business casual for that.

You don't bowl in Armani?  ;)  I'm assuming, other than the bowling, that my khakis will get me through the weekend?  Or should I do jeans, or something more proper?  This is my first admit weekend.

If Penn is anything like Michigan's admit weekend, don't spend more than two seconds thinking about what to wear. Jeans, t-shirts, ratty old hoodies... no holds barred. I wore khakis and a sweater one day at Michigan and I felt over-dressed. Not sure how much the east coast/Ivy League thing will change that, but I'm definitely leaving my shiny shoes and slacks at home for Penn.

I used priceline and am paying 65 dollars a nite at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penns Landing.  All the hotels around the university are pretty expensive...and my friend told me just to stay in downtown...(where the Hyatt Regency is). He said getting to the University shouldn't be too hard.

i just booked 2 nights at a hotel in center city. hotwire.com, pretty cheap, should be decent.  no way am i spending a night on a hardwood floor.  and here i thought i was going to be frugal  :D

I had a similar experience at Georgetown... my host was like, "Where's your sleeping bag?" and I was like, "Wha?"  Luckily she slept at her boyfriends, so I got her bed. 

What part of CC are you in?  I'll be heading over from 9th and Chestnut, if you guys are nearby and want to go together, Goodgal and Kuokuo.  I will not be getting there at 9am, however.  Especially not after a crazy night of bowling!  ;)

Oh, PS, to the bowlers... my sister's coming with me.  So you can recognize me by my bringing of an escort....

I'm going to be staying at the Wyndham @ Franklin Plaza, which is at 17th & Race Streets.  I'm not really sure how I'll be getting to Penn from there, hopefully the concierge can help me out  ;)

Oh, and I also plan to get to the breakfast thing at the last minute.  Well, maybe with 15 minutes or so to spare.

Anyway I'm sure I'll meet you guys (a bunch of you anyway) at bowling?  I'll be the one wearing bright blue sneakers  :D   (assuming you see me before i change into bowling shoes)

It's a long walk, so you need to take public transit.  You can get a taxi (probably like 7-10 dollars), or you can take the subway ($1.30 if you buy tokens).

I got an email today saying they are still finding me a host and that I should hear over the weekend.  Goodgal, I totally understand you're not wanting to sleep on the floor.  That's unacceptable.  In case that happens to me, I'll know not to feel bad when I say, "thanks, but no thanks." :-)

I see you guys at bowling too!  I'm also up for a bowling afterparty! :-)

LitDoc, that's how I was feeling during the NYU admit days... I just try to tell myself that I'm meant to be wherever I end up... clouds, silver lining, all that.

Anyone else just get an email telling them they wouldn't be getting any need-based aid?  No surprises there, given my parents' income.  Too bad they're not paying s-it! Sigh.

Just got the case, too!  It's about a schizophrenic woman who drowned her child.  She pled insanity, but the court said no dice because she didn't meet the "M'Naghten test," which states that in order to prove insanity a defendant must either not know the nature and quality of the act or not know that the act was wrong.

Hey guys, I'm gonna make a list of all the LSDers who are coming--perhaps everyone could PM me with their login names and their real names?  I can PM the list back to those who send it to me.

That way, when we see each other's nametags, we can ID posters without being obvious about it... whaddya think? 

If you're too nervous about revealing your secret identity, you can still PM me just to say that you'll be coming  :)

So, for the girls in the group -- what are you all wearing on Friday? I know I'm going jeans on Thursday and Saturday, and the email we just got says casual -- but the only thing I'm wondering about is cocktails and dinner on Friday night...I was thinking of wearing black pants and a cute top on Friday (since most of the day is laid back and we're going out that night)- but I'm not sure if I want to be in heels all day.  Ugh!! Its either heels with dress pants or jeans with cowboy boots or sneakers.  Hmmm, its a tough call...

What are ya'll planning on doing?

Post by: LitDoc on March 21, 2006, 10:53:35 AM
Guys, here's my recommendation:

Thursday - some pants, a shirt of some kind, some shoes
Friday - some pants, a shirt of some kind, some shoes
Saturday - some pants, a shirt of some kind, some shoes

Be sure to follow this advice. Do NOT be the guy who comes without pants.

(Sorry goodgal, couldn't resist. ;))

The problem with me is that I don't own any cute flats. Boo

Allow me to highly recommend DSW -- I just got a pair of cute Kenneth Cole maryjanes for $40, and a pair of Gucci heels for $50! (Sadly, the Guccis are too high to wear around all day.)

My plan, like Goodgal, is likewise over-thought.  Here goes:

Thurs: jeans, sneaks, tee
Fri: comfy knee-high black boots, black tights, jean skirt, shirt tbd (possibly a black buttondown)
Sat: jeans,sneaks or flats, cute top (also tbd); for night, cuter shoes and a going-out type top


My packing problems are always the same... I don't like black and brown together, and I like having both cute and comfortable shoes, and I want to work out every day (my sis has a gym in her apt building)... so I end up with bags, belts and shoes in two different colors and a crapload of other stuff.  Sigh.  Gotta carry my bag to work, and it's gonna be a pain.  :-\

um, yeah, I'm planning to bring the same suitcase that I use to go to my parents house for week-long or more vacations  ;)


now, as for the Friday night "social" thing - are you guys thinking of wearing something more "going out worthy," or just wearing what you wore all day to the admit stuff? 

I was thinking about taking a different shirt in my purse and doing a quick switcharoo...

Hey all-

Looking forward to seeing Penn and also to a four day weekend!

I can't believe I'm only just finding out about this site.  Probably a good thing, as this is exactly the kind of thing I would waste my time on rather than do any work.  Anyway, hope to see everyone down there.

So what did you guys think? I felt the professors, staff, and students were all really welcoming, and thought the law school had some great facilities. I really enjoyed philly and chilling in center city on Friday night (although I didn't stay too long at the Irish pub, went somewhere else instead with some Penn Law 1Ls).  The dorm rooms were kinda...well not the greatest...but I could live with it...

Didn't recognize any lsders...and I don't think anyone recognized me either..although I did recognize some faces from other schools' admit weekends...

What I liked was the 1Ls at Penn seemed more down-to-earth and able to balance their lives than ones I met at other schools. I also like how they don't force teachers to give bad grades, and their career services people were great. The dorm rooms did kinda suck but they're close and cheap, so I'll consider them if I go there. And I got to sit at a table with D-Murder at dinner so hopefully I can shake some leaves from the money tree after working my charm on him.

I saw legapp again along with goodgal, dmschec and laurenrae (but I only recognized her as we were walking to the train station to leave). I was pretty antisocial at the pub Friday though because my attention was commanded by the UConn game, if anyone is wondering I was the guy jumping up and down and probably spilling beer on himself when Rashad Anderson hit that shot.

I had such a great time at the Penn weekend -- I'm visiting Texas and Berkeley in the next two weeks, but they will be a very hard sell.  I thought the weekend was very well organized, and I appreciated the candor among the students.  Before visiting, I really wasn't concerned with the size of a law school (I am looking at GULC, and the larger size didn't really bother me) but by comparing it to Penn, I realize that a small school is really what I need right now.  I'm coming from a large undergrad, and having the extra attention will be very helpful.

And, I absolutly loved Philadelphia!  I thought the trolley ride was great, and it really helped me visualize myself living in the city.  I'm coming from NYC - and I have to say, the thought of getting a huge apartment in Center City for less than I'm paying now for a studio is very seductive.

In all, I loved the fact that I didn't constantly feel like I was being "sold" a school -- they didn't constantly compare themselves to other schools, except to just point out differences.  Walking around the building, campus and city I can really see myself living and thriving there!

Yeah, I also agree that people that weren't on the host committee still seemed to be happy and liked talking about how much they liked Penn. I didn't get that feeling at Georgetown or Cornell. And during the dean's speech at dinner I could really detect the excitement he had about the school in his voice. There really is something in the water.

Another observation I had was that it was heavily skewed toward people like me who are coming straight from UG or only have a year separation. I didn't meet as many nontrads as I did at other schools. Also, it seemed like EVERYONE there was deferred by Harvard. Lots of conversations about what schools people were deciding between were punctuated by "...unless I get into Harvard."

there were a lot of socially awkward admitted people. But then again, I think itís all like that at all these events. (this is my first admit event Iíve attended)

people are collegial but they are also competitive and driven. I think UVa has more laid back atmosphere, at least from what I hear.
 
and i second the str8 outta ug comment. there were some people who were listing the schools they got into, when i didnt even ask. very weird.

I thought it was good. I saw some LSD people and I got drunk at the Irish Pub. Then I went back to stay in my little brother's DORM at St. Joe's. That was pretty weird. I am 27.

I really liked my fellow admits, and it was kind of fun to be around a bunch of people in the same stressed-filled situation that I am. Strange sort of 'fun'.

I thought they did a pretty good job selling the school. As far as clerkships and academia, I got the impression that they're both possible, but that you need to actively pursue them - which is probably the same anywhere outside the very best schools in those areas. It also made me realize that some of the clerkship numbers are probably the result of the type of students who choose the school - e.g., someone who's deciding between Columbia and Chicago and wants to clerk will go to Chicago. Part of the reason it produces so many clerks is that so many people who are intested in clerking want to go there. If 20% of Chicago students seek prestigious clerkships, and only 5% of CLS grads do, of course that will affect those numbers. (Of course, maybe fewer CLS grads look to clerk because they are realistic about their chances coming from a school less known for producing clerks.)


It's interesting to think about the role the institution plays in generating interest in various career paths.

None of this is any great revelation. I'm just thinking aloud. Back to Penn:

Maybe it's because I'm also looking at Columbia, but they seemed to directly target CLS whenever they gave a sales pitch. There were several times where someone would think of another school off the top of their head and each time they named Columbia ("If you look at Penn vs., say, Columbia"). Could be random, could be the fact that they are similar in many ways (city schools, biglaw focus, Ivy League, etc.), could be a conscious decision about which they sent a memo to all involved in admit days.

Over dinner, the library guy slammed GULC when I told him that I was considering it:

- Where else are you looking?
- Georgetown, Columbia
- Georgetown? Why?
- What do you mean?
- It's just that we think we're a much better school than Georgetown.

VERY unquakerly.

Overall, I saw a lot I liked, little that I didn't, and so I am still no closer to any sort of decision.

I don't think the situation is that awkward. Everyone there is just as nervous about first impressions as you. And believe me, there are a LOT more awkward people at Georgetown and Cornell.

I didn't really get the feeling they actively put down other schools. The only time that happened to me was when I told one professor (Roosevelt for everyone who sat in on the con law class) that I was thinking about Penn and UVA he said that's not really a choice, I should just go to Penn. And apparently another professor told someone else "we don't lose students to UVA."

Interesting...I'm on the brink of being lost by both UChicago and UPenn to UVa.

That makes two of us.  While the admit weekend was nice, I wasn't blown away, and Philly left something to be desired.  If it weren't for a pretty generous scholarship, I would have been long since withdrawn from Penn.

Philly is awesome.  The COL is low, and it has great neighborhoods with small town appeal while offering many of the things you can get only from a big city.  It's not NY, but in a lot of ways it's a better place to live than NY.

I really liked Penn and in the end it impressed me more than GULC did. I think the Wharton certificate thing is a big draw for me, and I like that the school is a little smaller than GULC was. The facilities seemed excellent and the fellow admits were generally very friendly. I think we all know that at any top school there will be a handful of awkward and socially maladjusted people... that's just the nature of our situation. The current students seemed relaxed and generally very enthusiastic, which was good to see. I think I will likely attend in the fall

Thirded.

My impressions are basically the same as in the old Penn Preview review thread, since I went to both the preview and the ASW.  This weekend confirmed my liking for the school, and I fell in love with Philly just a little bit more.

The only thing to add are a few things I love about Philly:

-you can get by easily without a car; pretty simple to walk/bike/bus/subway to center city from university city
-the old world charm (i'm a sucker for history)
-lower cost of living v. nyc (i can live alone!)
-benefits of urban life, like cute restaurants and boutiques

Some things are completely personal:
-my sis lives there--at least for the next year--and she has Tivo!
-dog-friendly; there's a lively dog run along the schyukill (sp?) river
-great tennis facilities, including indoor courts right near the law school

For me, the only schools that can compete are CLS and NYU, and I'm deferred at both.  It's possible I'm leaning towards Penn regardless... when I think about all my commitments in New York (volunteering, tennis leagues, boyfriend, friends, etc.), I think it might be nice to escape them so I can fully devote my time to law school.

Other than that... overall, Penn definitely feels less stuffy than other places.  Someone on LSD said that she felt like students appreciated their time at Penn, rather than just treating it like a means to an end. I got that impression as well; I think perhaps it's because Penn's admission staff seems to focus on creating an interesting mix in their student body.  And Dean Meeker's so cool!

I had a good time during the weekend.  I was very impressed with the school and the fellow admits.  The small class sizes obviously have a tremendous impact on the student-professor relationships. I saw students with their arms slung around their teachers.  Their relationships certainly seemed like the kind of educational experience I would like to have.  The faculty and administrators were very friendly and impressive.  The other admits were normal and seemed to be generally fun, smart and interesting people.  Obviously, being placed in that situation is kind of awkward and most of your initial conversations consist of the same questions, so much so, that after a while you feel like you're reading a script (at one point after talking to another admit for ten minutes about their undergrad experience, there was a silence and I asked where they did undergrad), however, the weekend was so extensive I think most people ended up meeting people they would look forward to seeing again if they decided to attend the school.  Also the night at the bar was a lot of fun. 

I personally never heard neither much ragging nor envying of other schools.  In fact most of the 1L's described personal decision processes close to those of the admits.

I wasn't too crazy about the area of the city, although it was much nicer than I had expected.  I guess I liked how at Georgetown it seemed like a majority of the 1L's live together on the law school campus as opposed to off campus or 12 streets down at Center City.

Speaking of Georgetown, I made the obvious mistake, in retrospect, of not going to the admitted student socials.  If anyone on this board did go to them, can you tell me if they were similar in nature to the atmosphere at the Penn socials or did that socialable atmosphere have something to do with the smaller size of the functions and the law class?

i thought the professors were great, too, and i loved the mock class (even though i made a fool of myself by trying to answer a question and then becoming tongue-tied and braindead when prof. morse asked me to clarify my answer).

I was at that class, and I don't remember anyone embarassing themself that way, so don't worry.

I went to the early admitted Georgetown socials... the bar was super packed, so it was hard to move around, but it was nice how they reserved a room for law students... at the Penn bar, we were kind of scattered about.  The food was really good at the Georgetown reception part (chocolate fountain!) but it was hard to eat because there weren't tables set up to sit down.

Honestly, I spoke to many of the same admits at both events; I found everyone friendly.  As for current students, the Georgetown people seemed a little heavier on the drinking and partying... but it could just be the crowd I met.

I agree about the difference in students at Gtown and Penn in regards to partying -- but I also think it was the group I was with at Georgetown --- I partied a lot at Penn and saw tons of students out.  I think that the proximity of the law school at Penn to lots of happy hour places make it really easy for you to go out at Penn.  Honestly, I found an amazing group of girls at Penn that are coming next year with me, and we all like to go out -- I think its what you make it.  If you like to party - you can find a group that does too.  Anywhere you go, a month or so before finals everyone stops going out - before that, its fair game.

I--not surprisingly I guess--also thought Penn's admit weekend was quite awesome. Right from the get go with the welcome remarks for Deans Meeker and Clinton, I felt a genuine enthusiasm for Penn Law that was repeated echoed by professors and current student throughout the rest of the weekend. 

After reading comments from LSDers who attended other admit weekends, I wondered if Penn would also engage in "peer-bashing".  I was really glad to see that none of the students or faculty I spoke with did that.  I remember talking to Dean Clinton on the way up to dinner on Friday and he'd asked me what other schools I was considering.  When I told him Columbia & NYU he said, "I can't say anything bad about those schools; they're both excellent.  Different maybe, but excellent."

I really liked the classrooms I got a chance to see (I guess some were recently renovated).  The bathrooms were clean (important!), the security guards were nice, as were the librarians--once I finally found the library!  (Did anyone else start to wonder if there was something really wrong w/ it after a whole day with no library tour?)

Most of the current students were very eager, helpful, and more importantly, personable (I'm glad to see that I might just remain normal afterall despite the slings and arrows of 1L year).  I really enjoyed the conversations I had with all the other admitted students--even if every once in a while I felt like a broken record answering the same question 10 different times.

The tour of Philadelphia was very enlightening.  I'm glad that the whole "West Philly" myth has been dispelled somewhat.  Now that I've been assured that I can get my hair and nails done (yeah, I'm the one who asked), I could defintely see myself in the neighborhood.

All in all, I really liked the new parts of Philly I got to see and Penn Law itself.  Columbia/NYU would really have to pull out all the stops to top this weekend.  I guess, we'll see.

Okay, I'm gonna end the dissertation now.  ::)

p.s. I thought Professor Morse would be awesome to have for Crim Law.  My attention didn't wander for a second.

Care to elaborate on the asian-american interactions? It seems to me from visiting schools that -ALSA's in law schools are generally more active than ethnic interest groups in undergrad.

Also, has anyone seen both UVa and Penn? I'm in the process of deciding between those two.
