i'll echo the 'where do you want to work' sentiment--if you want to work in dc then gw w/o a doubt- if you want to work in md/del then umd w/o a doubt---anywhere else i think it depends more on what you want to be doing after law school

not sure if anyone is looking for housing but im moving out of my 1 BR apt/house at the end of this month and i dont think the realtor has gotten somebody to take it yet

Nice to see some W&L '09 chatter on here, thought I'd join in. My story is that I applied on a (free app) whim and I got accepted last year, went to the admitted student weekend, fell in love with the profs and the program (but not the town), and then ended up deferring at almost the last minute due to undergrad burnout.  I worked in Philadelphia as a lowly law clerk for a year, and now I'm ready to get back to academia. I am excited about the small classes and the tight student body, but of course I'm worried about going country-crazy since I've lived in or around a major metropolis for my entire life. It's just strange since I've basically put law school out of my mind for a while and now it's seems like it's right around the corner all of a sudden. 

As far as housing goes, I'm also leaning toward getting in on a 2-4 bedroom law student house as close to campus as possible, so I'm frantically waiting for the admitted student message board to get rolling.  Has anyone had any luck finding a place yet?  Anyone need a housemate (my only reqs are no dogs and no smoking)? I haven't been to Lexington in over a year, but I plan on getting down there either in mid May or early June, I just hope all the good places won't be gone...

Can't wait to meet you all! I mean y'all.

wahoo more philly area people

Law School Rankings / Re: What schools are underrated by US News?

i agree with you, but i think he left W&L because he brought it up as high as it can get and emory has the potential to go higher then W&L, people are going to disagree with me but what's the point of having an opinion if no one disagrees with you  8)?

i think its because emory offers boatloads of money (in which case very smart move on his part)- also not many people here like him (tho i cant say that goes into his decisionmaking)

Rutgers/W&L

people are confused by this all the time---im not quite sure if it says anything except maybe 'this guy is confused'

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: W&L 4/1 - Whudja think?

no- people pretty much end up all over- mostly it seems around the places they are from

there are jobs in the lex area suprisingly between research assistants, working at the clinics, or in roanoke/charlotesville

Acceptances / Re: W&L vs. W&M...please help!!

lexington is actually more democratic i believe- it smostly old retirees and people who work at the schools- outside is pretty redneck

the only thing annoying about W&L is when you write the name--- you can't just write XU like most schools and if you say 'WL' people think its a waitlist- you will have to hit shift+7 every stinkin time

where almost everyone is white and almost everyone is southern and conservative.

i'll try and offer you a little help- you can't deny almost everyone is white.  they told me last year that its not because they dont try but its just hard a lot of times when you have such a tiny school to convince a lot of minority students to come.  I do think teh school leans a tad on the conservative side but I know a very good amount of people who are liberals. In fact of all the schools i ever visited i think w&l had the most political balance of anywhere (of course since most of the academic world is on the left this makes w&l look much more conservative then it actually is).  I feel like the general attitude of the political climate is like this:  everyone is pretty open to different ideas and perspectives- they just may not agree with those ideas----Thats the only way i can really try to gauge the Feminist Alliance reception- people will have no problem with your personal beliefs but they will just not agree.  i hope that made some sense
 
While many people are southern there really is a pretty sizable mix of people from various parts of the country.  That was one thing i was really worried about going in but I have met and know plenty of people from areas not in the 'confederate' states
