Long Island to Philly.  In terms of mileage that doesn't sound so bad, but it is time consuming and expensive because we have to pass through some of the most high-traffic, toll-heavy areas of the country!!

Crimea River.  That's not even 100 miles.  Get real.

Oh wait - I just clicked on your LSD link.  I was thinking you were going to Penn.  I wouldn't move 100 miles to go to Temple.  I don't think I'd even move 10 miles to go there.

OBTW, the reason the tolls are so high is you have to pay to get out of Jersey.  There's a high demand for that.


Wow. You're rude. Glad I won't be seeing you in the fall.

Attend events through school, talk to people, you will find opportunities to network once you enter school.  Do whatever makes you comfortable, but it just seems a little nuts to begin preparing mail merges now.  Plus, most firms will want to see your first semester grades, so just because you can send out resumes on Dec 1 doesn't mean anyone will look at them yet. Good luck whatever you do.

I don't plan to network.  At all.  I plan to just send them out and rely on my school's reputation as a T10, if not T5.

Wow. I am having trouble taking this poster seriously.  Have fun mail merging all summer.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Consultants

It actually has nothing to do with buying your way into law school, since hiring some help is in no way a guarantee of anything.  I chose how to use my resources in order to prepare the best applications I could for school, and since I wanted to play up my work experience as best I could, I wanted to make the personal statement something I could feel confident in.  Consultants have references that you can check, and you can ask around to see who has used them, or if they have published anything.  It's a personal choice to enhance one's ability to submit an application that one feels confident about, it's not buying a ticket into anything.

I used a consultant to help write my personal statement since my ug gpa was kind of on the low end, I graduated in 2000, and I felt like I needed someone with experience to help me out.  We spoke a few times, and the most helpful part was having him question me a lot to brainstorm ideas.  Together we chose what experiences of mine to highlight and how to structure the essay.  I found it to be extremely helpful.

I just wanted to thank uh.huh and vercingetorix for their posts.  You guys offered a fresh perspective, and it is great to hear from some people who are not very recent college grads.  Very much appreciated!

Financial Aid / Re: Grad PLUS Loans

Your school should notify you when to apply.  My school told me later in June they will send out  more info on loans and the aid package.

That's your opinion, and it's good that you stated it.  Most of us who posted were just posing questions for thought to the OP, so you don't need to lump everyone and say the responses were stupid. It's just rude!
