NYU full ride.  Yes it's Yale, but the ability to go to a top five school for free, and the freedom it allows you for the next twenty years, sounds great.  Only go to Yale if you are in love with it.

What are the terms for the full ride at NYU?

Please say this is a flame.  If this makes you hate your life, you deserve neither.

OP - this is an easy way to get people to hate you.  It makes you seem pretentious and unaware of the world around you.  If you ask the question in a more positive way, people respond better.

Incidentally, I'd probably choose yale.  Of course, I didn't wait for the money from NYU, and I'm turning down yale.

No strings. I received a 177 and 3.95 from Vassar.

it really depends on what you want to do:

are you interested in academia or big-time clerking? if so, then it's a no-brainer.

are you interested in biglaw? then you'll end up with a great job out of either school, although maybe have a slightly easier time of it coming out of yale.

are you interested in something less well paying? hello, nyu.

Just so you know, it's bad form to say you 'received' the 177 and 3.95.  Better something like: "I scored a 177 on the LSAT and earned a 3.95 at Vassar."

Ron!  GET A f-ing CLUE!!!

I, for one, am not the least bit jealous of you, and I still think that you are stupid to have posted as you did.  Sure, your numbers are better than mine, but it doesn't matter in the end, since my cycle has gone just swimmingly.

The reason people dislike your post is that you are as melodramtic as a 7 year old girl.  Yes, you have a legitimately difficult decision, and I think LSD is a fine place to talk that out.  But you hate your life?  Give me a f-ing break!  That is unbelievable!  The  thread is "this sucks."  HA!  Really sucks, feminine hygiene product.  You don't want to make the choice?  How about choosing between your current situation and being rejected everywhere but Cooley?

Man, Cooley makes life easy.

Get a clue.

Actually, in this case it would not make a difference. The action of receiving a 177 did take place and refers to my LSAT score. Yes, I did earn a 3.95, but this is a matter of semantics. Read some Wittgenstein!!

Wait, which part of this sucks?  The fact that you were lucky enough to get into THE best law school in the country, or that you were also lucky enough to receive a full scholarship from one of the top 6 schools in the country, absolving yourself of the six-figures of debt most of your classmates will graduate with?

Oh wait, I see... it's the fact that you didn't also get a full ride from Yale, a school that offers no merit-based aid to anyone.

Agreed, your situation is pretty much hopeless.  At least you can take solace in the fact that you're not alone in your feelings, because pretty much everyone who reads this will hate you too.  Hopefully this validation will help dull the pain of your sucky life.

HTH!

This guy is clearly not serious.  Perhaps you meant "you're green!", as in "you are green", presumably with envy.  But I digress.  Your choice should be decided with respect to what you would like to end up doing and your financial situation.  Obviously you're in great shape either way.

Well, I think I can say with no jealousy, do the NYU full ride. Yale rocks, this is true, but the free factor at a comparable school would be impossible to beat for me.

And I do think it has to be a HARD decision. It's like weight loss: it is as hard for a supermodel to drop 2 lbs as it may be for someone who weighs 260 to lose 80 lbs. Or, better put by Mark Twain, "Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion a child’s loss of a doll and a king’s loss of a crown are events of the same size."

Try making a decision when 4 of the 6 schools you are considering haven't said yes or no!!!

None of the above.  The correct choice is Cooley.

This is clearly a flame.  The people giving serious advice, and the people reacting angrily to some of the more incendiary statements... well, hey, it's your time I guess.  But that seems like a silly way to spend it. ::)

Donnie Jeffcoat's someone who did a Google Images search for "Jew."  Guess which images turned up.  Oddly enough, a search for "Shivenstein" doesn't turn up any results!  I guess you could call me one of those self-hating half-Jews if you want to keep up this ridiculous persona, but really, it needs work.  You're too obviously not real.

Shivenstein wouldn't return any results because my friend named the pic "Jew". If you don't believe me so be it. Thanks for the advice.

For future reference,

The credited response would have been:  "I just liked the picture, moron.  Of course it's not me.  Do you think I'm stupid enough to actually post my own picture on an internet board?"

This is what we in the trolling business call a "Plausible Alternative."  When you have been discovered for what you are, due to the quick work of a Trollee that has too much time on their hands or your own near-sightedness, try to explain away the Trollee's proof by providing a situation or alternate cause to their accusations that is at least somewhat believable, failing to do so often results in an acute loss of credibility and trolltility.

Moreover an attack on one of their argument's assumptions is an easy way to strengthen the plausibility of your reply as the Trollee will be put on the defensive and focus more on the attack than the merit of your proposal.

I think you need to visit each school and figure out what's most important to you:
1) no loans
2) what you want to do after ?... both schools have good loan repayment programs for non-profit work
3) whether you will hate New Haven "the city of elm trees" small college town atmosphere and love NYC's dirt or vice versa...

Do not ever say you hate your life though. We are lucky to have so many options in our lives.
By the way... CONGRATULATIONS.
Side-note:
Sat in on a Yale class that was amazing... NYU was too and they have a WAY MORE RELAXED atmosphere than Yale, and for me...diversity matters. Though no law school is "liberal" (hate the term) enough for me, NYU is touted as the most progressive of the upper tier schools. Though I dont buy it, at least they want to be progressive. =) Dont know about Yale though.

It seems to me that some of you will make poor attorneys.  Nothing in the OP's statements demonstrates by any stretch that the picture is not his own likeness.  Why not post your real picture?  How can that possibly expose you on an anonymous message board without additional information?  Also, why would someone go out of their way to use a phony picture that is not obviously a joke.  It's some dorky looking bearded guy for god-sake.  And to imply that the picture is a stereotypical "Jew" is absolutely anti-Semitic.  To think that and then search the word "Jew" on Google demonstrates inherent bigotry.

By the way, your scores, your grades and your law school matriculation does not assure you success in life or even in law.

It's the speed with which you guys jump to illogical conclusions that strikes me as incongruous to your high test scores.  Lawyers really do not benefit from that kind of flawed thought process.  And no, I'm not the OP.  He's pathetic.  I'm also not Ron Dunson (whoever that is).  I'm just a lot older than you kids and am not quite as weighed down by the likes of your enormous egos.

He knows how trolls think.

The secret is, they don't.  Random word, throw on Stein, it sounds Jewish.  Put up Semitic looking picture.  Say you went to Vassar (>20% Jewish).  Say you are debating on straight up admission to best law school in country vs full ride at fourth best law school in country (utilizing stereotype that Jews are invariably academic overachievers).  Say your numbers are near perfect, but not *too* perfect, just to seal the deal.  Come on.  I don't know if he even missed any Jewish stereotypes.

I really fail to see how recognizing overt attempts at making Jewish stereotypes makes ME anti-Semitic.

Just as a head's up, people of the Jewish faith don't consider the word "jew" an insult, unless there is some context for thinking it is being used that way.  Another way in which the OP kind of outted himself as a fake, since he took being called "jew" to be insulting.  In fact, it is fairly insulting to assume the word jew is an insult.

Well, I have noticed one is quickly charged with anti-semitism for almost anything.  Even in politics if one discusses Israel's heinous actions in the middle east they get accused of being anti-semitic.  For example, John Mearsheimerm a Harvard Professor recently wrote an insightful article on Israel's maniuplation of our foreign policy, in response you see a plethora of articles accusing him of anti-semitism.

It's one thing to argue that Israel has committed heinous actions in the Middle East. It's another to make shadowy allegations about Israel "manipulating our foreign policy." The latter is very close to being anti-Semitic.

And Mearsheimer is a UChicago professor who co-wrote that particular paper with Stephen Walt, a Harvard guy. The response to the paper has been a fairly robust debate in which both the issue he raises and issues of anti-Semitism have been brought up.

Robust debate? Well, I have yet to see a worthy and scholarly
reply to Mearsheimer and Walt's article. http://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/print/mear01_.html

Though I have seen scores of articles that attempts to undermine their work by the "anti-semitic/or close to anti-semitic" allegation.

Moreoever, one can talk against the government of Sudan's policy without making them Anti-Semitic the same applies for discussing Israel on a negative light. 

Nevertheless without veering off-topic here, I think the OP whatever his agenda is, was rightfully exposed by some of the posters here on this thread.  I also don't get how some of the issues one of the posters brought up here surmises to any type of anti-semitism on his part.

I don't really want to discuss the Mearsheimer paper much here because I am too close to it personally. If you want to see some of the debate it has provoked, Daniel Drezner has blogged about it extensively:
www.danieldrezner.com/blog (http://www.danieldrezner.com/blog)

Search his site and you will find about a dozen links to articles that dissect the argument from all sides.

Let me point out, though, the crucial leap you made that is important. You argue that it should be ok to criticize Israel's policies, just as it is ok to criticize Sudan's policies, or those of any other country. However, in your original post, you talk about Israel's "manipulation of our foreign policy." That is not a criticism of their policies, that is a conspiratorial allegation, and one that almost no one ever makes in regard to other countries. (No one talks about Pakistan's "manipulation of our policies, despite the fact that America has been fairly consistently pro-Pakistan)

Also, Mearsheimer and Walt themselves never use that language in their paper either. Language like that is very close to language that has been used by anti-Semites throughout history, and thus should be avoided. By all means, argue against Israel's policies. But be very cautious before you start claiming there is some behind-the-scenes conspiracy that manipulates our country.

But be very cautious before you start claiming there is some behind-the-scenes conspiracy that manipulates our country.

Paul Findley a former representative from Illinois wrote an insightful book called "They Dare to Speak Out" over twenty years ago about Israel's powerful lobby here in the US.  Apart from the NY Times, the book received glowing reviews from the media.  What is strange is that the contents of the book was extensively similiar to M&W's article on Israel's influence on US foreign policy. 

Yet the charge of anti-semitism wasn't alleged then.  Interestingly enough now things have greatly changed. 

With all things considered I could have used Israel's influence instead of manipulation, but that's not the crux of the matter if you want to quibble on this issue more, your on your own.  I have stated before that individuals are quick to fire off and allege anti-semitism where that just simply isn't the case.

I have one quick question, how do you get LSD to automatically put your signature on the bottom of every post?

See, I don't even know how you knew that.  I guess I'm just stupid about computers.  Took me a long time to even figure out how to get that pic into my post.  Oh well.

Ya really think my current pic is cute enough for a pedophile to like?   :-*  *Batting eyelashes*  Ew, ok, maybe I should change my pic AGAIN.

Alrighty, must get back to writing my Letters of Continued Interests...   :'(

When faced with such a difficult decision, it all comes down to which school has the best food...
All kidding aside, the difference can be summed up as follows: where will YOU be more comfortable? trying to divine a meaninful difference based on statistics is pointless.

Let's see. I am driven to respond to this fellow's dilemma.
And, given that this fellow is evidently a scholar, I will strive to make my advice empirically sound.
An acquaintance of mine, a female, that had been a law professor at NYU spoke highly of the place. I did think highly of this person.
My sister-in-law's boss is on the admission committee of Yale law. I now think that my sister in law is a female private part.
Go to NYU.

No strings. I received a 177 and 3.95 from Vassar.

Just so you know, it's bad form to say you 'received' the 177 and 3.95.  Better something like: "I scored a 177 on the LSAT and earned a 3.95 at Vassar."

/ end tangent

Actually, in this case it would not make a difference. The action of receiving a 177 did take place and refers to my LSAT score. Yes, I did earn a 3.95, but this is a matter of semantics. Read some Wittgenstein!!

OK I called it, I'm done with this thread.

I can search for "Jew" on Google images too.

(http://fms.komkon.org/RussianIRC/faces/Jew.gif)

Don't you ever call me a Jew again. Yes, that is my picture on google images, so what is your point? So what exactly did you call? I guess it's impossible to have a picture on google images...you got me.

-Shivenstein

For future reference,

The credited response would have been:  "I just liked the picture, moron.  Of course it's not me.  Do you think I'm stupid enough to actually post my own picture on an internet board?"

This is what we in the trolling business call a "Plausible Alternative."   When you have been discovered for what you are, due to the quick work of a Trollee that has too much time on their hands or your own near-sightedness, try to explain away the Trollee's proof by providing a situation or alternate cause to their accusations that is at least somewhat believable, failing to do so often results in an acute loss of credibility and trolltility.

Moreover an attack on one of their argument's assumptions is an easy way to strengthen the plausibility of your reply as the Trollee will be put on the defensive and focus more on the attack than the merit of your proposal.

You got rejected from Berkeley. You don't have the numbers to apply to Yale, so stop with the lame excuses!

Wanna be in Academia or be a fat cat in a Manhattan firm? Go to NYU.

Shiv, I actually know exactly how you feel. I don't have the same options, but I feel that I'm faced with equally tough ones. I, like you, in some way probably wish you were never offered the money. Then there wouldn't be such complication.

But don't be a feminine hygiene product to people, man. You're smart, we get it. Quit the bragging.

Finally, congrats on your success! :)

To all the anti-Semites on this site, you're directing your hatred against a fantom Jew. 

"Shivenstein" is a proven flame, it's been long established by people far more intelligent than you (Appeal to Qualified Authority).

In addition "Shivenstein" is NOT a REAL JEWISH LAST NAME!  Names ending on "-STEIN" (pronounced SHTINE) in German, were sold to Ashkenazi Jews in Germany.  It would normally be attached to a word that had a meaning in either German or, in very few cases Hebrew, such as Rubenstein - a Ruby Stone, Silverstein - a silver stone, etc.  The word "SHIVEN" has no meaning, whatsoever!

The fact that this flamer, whose intentions were most likely to entice jealosy to his "unfortunate predicament", a jealosy based on appeal to anti-Semitic tendencies of some populace, picked a last name that would sound "very Jewish", but in fact is not, proves that he is not really a Jew, at all.

The irony of the situation, of course, is that it caused some dumb bigots shoot blanks.  Amusing, indeed.

I think NYU because it has that teaching program, and NYC >> Newhaven.  Having massive debt is not conducive to teaching.

An attorney from NYU saved my life.  He battled big shot law enforcement and corrupt police departments to make sure I received a warning and shake of the head.  Were talking about taking on a whole town, local police, and the State Police.  If you ask me NYU develops one hell of a defense advocate!  Take the ride and save someones life so they don't get sent away someplace they don't deserve to go.  By the way, I will be passing along the favor someday after I graduate from law school.

if you are that smart, you should be able to make your own decision.

Wow! I can tell there is a lot of jealousy on this board. A decision can be tough for anyone, regardless of their level of intelligence.

Ron!  GET A f-ing CLUE!!!

I, for one, am not the least bit jealous of you, and I still think that you are stupid to have posted as you did.  Sure, your numbers are better than mine, but it doesn't matter in the end, since my cycle has gone just swimmingly.

The reason people dislike your post is that you are as melodramtic as a 7 year old girl.  Yes, you have a legitimately difficult decision, and I think LSD is a fine place to talk that out.  But you hate your life?  Give me a f-ing break!  That is unbelievable!  The  thread is "this sucks."  HA!  Really sucks, feminine hygiene product.  You don't want to make the choice?  How about choosing between your current situation and being rejected everywhere but Cooley?

Man, Cooley makes life easy.

Get a clue.

Signed,
Jealous Poster
(Since there's obviously no other explanation, certainly none that doesn't say that you are an idiot)

ouch  :'(

I feel compelled to remind Jeffcoat, once again, "Rome wasn't built in a day."  After all these years he is still green!

I guess smart people have clever problems because I don't know. I was going to say NYU, but it is difficult to tell someone not to go to Yale.

Final answer: YALE

You'd probably have to live in New Haven if you choose to attend Yale. That, plus no scholarship =  NYU.

Hehe. Bump. Memorialized on LSD as the biggest flame ever.  Where did the OP end up going?  NYU for free I hope. Kind of a duh question.

This sucks- women want me and men just want to be me.  Who's perspective is better?  I just can't decide. I hate my life. Help. Yeah Yeah, I know people are starving to death in Haiti.
