Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Defer and save $ or just go?
« on: April 27, 2005, 01:53:16 PM »
I would go, its a great school in a magnificent city, why hold off?  Who knows what may happen in a year.  I'm jealous, what an awesome opportunity, good luck to you!

good idea especially if the LS in question is good LS.  I am of the opinion that applying to the LS where you got your undergrad degree gives you a slight advantage in the admission process. 

I disagree, at least in my state, CT, going to Uconn as in undergrad is a disadvantage when applying to law school.  This may have something to do with the fact that they are the only public university that makes a profit every year and the highest paid state employee is the men's basketball coach.   :)

Relationships are hard, I'm glad I'll have school to concentrate on for awhile.  I think you guys are right, if you really love someone then you stick by them and what they want for themselves.  By bf is just being a jerk, I hope he comes around a little so I at least can spend some time with him before I leave.  We'll see.

Well, at least most of you guys are dating people who understand your need to pursue your dreams and are supportive of that.  My guy wants me to go, but at the same time is angry at me for leaving him.  I turned down his offer to move in with him and pursue a law degree locally.  Its tough because we do love each other, it definately helps hearing your stories though.

I've decided to go to school in Boston, which means leaving my boyfriend behind in CT.  We have been together for 5 years, but lately its been so on again off again, that I decided I wasn't going to hold back on my dreams for a relationship that hasn't felt very secure lately.  Even though Boston is only 1.5 hours away from where my boyfriend lives in CT, he has doubts that the relationship will survive the distance.  He is a real estate agent and is busy on the weekends and obviously I will be busy during the week.  The thing is we both love each so much, its gonna be tough for us to part.  I was just wondering if anyone else was going though a similiar situation.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Anyone on hold at NYLS???

I wish you luck, if that were you really want to be.  Just keep in mind that is ridiculously expensive, not to even mention living expenses in Manhatten.  You will be shocked coming from Mississippi.  Also, I would go for a visit if you can.  People have been posting that the building is horrible even though its in a decent nieghborhood.  Good luck!

They were the first school I heard from, acceptance w/$$$.  I went to the admitted students day and wasn't crazy about the school so I declined there.  That should help you out some!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Waitlisted @ Suffolk
« on: April 12, 2005, 07:28:37 AM »
Anyone know how many people Suffolk took off the Waitlist last year?  What are chances might be of getting off?  And when do they let people know by typically?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: quinnipiac

I was also waitlisted at Quinnipiac. I was surprised too, my scores are definately comparable to their medians.  I think a lot of people who want to go to Uconn apply to Quin. as a back up school.

i'm curious how many times in an interview does an employer ask..."so what tier was your school ranked in us news and report the year you were admitted?"

i'm curious if you asked johnny cochran if he would know what tier his school was ranked the year he went there by us news and report...

my point is that this lame tier system doesnt matter...

Thank you Tony.  You people are obsessed over these rankings.  I think its more about how you do at the school you chose to go to, not about the school you go too.  I mean, does someone who barely passes  from a Tier one school have a better shot at getting a job then the person who places in the top 5 at a Tier 4 school????
