This is a warning from a current WU undergrad. (Going someplace else for law school.)

Salem is a dump, hands down the worst city in Oregon. Cheap, but sketchy as all get out. The bars are lame except for a few McMinnamin's, food options are limited, outdoor options are weak. Far away from skiing , climbing, and lots of petty crime. Serious meth and/or homeless, transient problem. Go to L & C, portland is much better. Don't be fooled by the pretty campus. I've put 20,000 miles a year on my car escape this place on the weekends.

exact same situation. my numbers just a touch higher, but i haven't heard either... so maybe they just haven't called us west coast kids yet. wish they'd send an email.

good luck!!

Any thoughts on which would be a better pick?
Interested in jurisprudence, comparative, and international law; private sector initially, but maybe academia or gov't later.
Straight out of college; pretty outdoorsy.

Both berekly and chicago seem great, with the later maybe being a touch more academic,
but boalt seems like it has an amazing quality of life.

Any thoughts?

I'm a applicant with pretty strong raw numbers- 178 LSAT, 3.90 GPA- but little extracurriculars, so-so private school, no work experience, and i'm a white male.

Haven't heard from yale or stanford, no surprise, but...

haven't heard from chicago or columbia, either, which makes me nervous.
At this point is a ding likely, or am i worrying too soon?
any sense on when the dings will come?

thanks for any insight...
