General Board / Re: UIUC vs Iowa
« on: June 26, 2005, 04:58:25 PM »
I would say to go with UIUC -- huge Chicago connection -- not just with OCI or what have you -- but a really great alumni base.  In terms of location -- you'll be so busy in law school that perhaps it would be wise to talk about what the library looks like -- but the city (or lack thereof) isn't going to be somewhere you're going to be seeing a lot of - whether it's cornfields or NYC.

General Board / Re: Mail merge

Question about fall recruiting: since the firms won't have any first year grades when you apply -- if you're not attenting a top-14 law school and didn't go to a ivy undergrad --- is there really any point in applying to top law firms?  Especially if you're right out of undergrad and don't have any stellar work experience.   Or is there a realistic change for the non-ivy students out there?

Where should I go next fall? / Vandy/GW/Fordham/USC/WashU
« on: April 06, 2005, 12:08:06 AM »
So Wash U is pretty much out of the question.
BUT
If I want to work in NYC, make a lot of money (let's not lie)& be  happy -- make a decision for me!  What would be the best place to eventually land a firm job in NYC?  Fordham?  Or would it be USC cause it's the best school out of the bunch?

Law School Applications / Michigan phone call
« on: April 05, 2005, 07:34:33 PM »
So I got a phone call from the Michigan campus today, but I missed it and they didn't leave a message.  I have no friends who would be calling me from a campus extension - does anyone know if Michigan calls their applicants before making a decision?  Could this be amazing, thrilling, ridiculous news?

Acceptances / Re: In at USC

No EA, no deferrment - this is actually the first thing I've gotten form them since I went complete around Christmas.

Right now, USC is in a fabulous & deadlocked four-way tie with GW, Fordham & Vanderbilt.  And I have, what, ten days to decide?

Acceptances / In at USC
« on: April 05, 2005, 12:48:52 AM »
Just got a big packet today in the mail.

Officially, now, I have an even smaller clue of where I want to be in the fall.  I know I want to stay on the east coast probably - but three years in Sunny California might be too hard to pass up!

Wait List / Waitlisted at BU??!?!?!?!?!?
« on: April 02, 2005, 02:32:26 PM »
Whaaaa?  Got the letter in the mail today.  I thought I would have been accepted without a problem.  That'll put a damper on your day.

Yeah, definitely thinking about NYC post-grad.  I feel like Vandy might limit me to the south & GW would limit me to policy, not firm work.  But I'm pulling those assumptions out of my ass.
