Penn wouldn't give a *&^% about NU (not NW) offer. It is not considered to be a peer school. What do you want to do after law school?

Present economic conditions aside...
I doubt you'll have any trouble doing real estate-related work no matter what level school you attend or at what level firm you practice. Real estate is about the most ubiquitous (and least intellectually challenging) of all the fields. Trust me, I worked in RE finance.
Okay, let me start off by saying that I am SURE the relative merits of each part of CCN has been the topic of many threads, but I can't seem to find any through a quick search, so if anyone could post a link, that would be great.
Take UMich - almost the same prestige at almost half the price.
Seriously, are YOU being facetious? He says what he's basing it on - you seem like you're basing your opinion on Penn brochures.
Dude, wtf with the hostility? It was a legitimate question. "1.5 days / 15 students" doesn't exactly answer the "what" question, especially when it goes contrary to what everyone else is saying.
Penn has a terrible atmosphere.
Seriously, are you being facetious? Penn Law touts itself as a very collegial place... what are you basing it on?

Well I wrote them a letter explaining I was taking a job to pay down student loans for one year. I worked in a top 14 admissions office for two years so don't preach to me about the practices of adcoms, its actually not that uncommon for people to reapply since schools don't allow deferrals these days.
OK, you convinced me. Now all is left is to convince the people who are supposed to accept you.
Stop posting to this board without knowing your LSAT. A 3.5 GPA could land you at Harvard or at any of the numerous TTT's with no career prospects. Yes, I've been out of school for 12 yrs, have great softs and an Ivy League degree, but a year ago I was hoping to make it into Cardozo. Today, I've already turned down full scholarship there and about to withdraw from three of the T14's. LSAT is king. Without it - it's just BS. Go do some LR questions.

Are you an idiot or just naive? What kind of message about your determination to go to law school, do you think, the adcoms are getting from seeing your app two years in a row? Note, you did not defer - simply chose not to attend. They are people there, you know, and you made them work for nothing.
This is the biggest no-brainer X v. Y thread I've ever seen.
It really has never been this one-sided
