I'm still stuck between a few schools. Money is a huge concern...I'm not sure I want to go the biglaw route and I have a few "fall back" jobs. I'm not picky about where I practice. The amounts listed are scholarships. Thanks guys!!!

Incoming 1Ls / Getting Married while in Law School?
« on: April 08, 2009, 09:08:15 AM »
I'm an engaged 0L. I don't have a wedding date set yet but I wanted to get some insight from current law students on when the best time to have the wedding would be. I am considering my 1L summer because I'm assuming whatever job I have will not be as intense as my 2L summer when I am considered more valuable. Are winter breaks out of the question? I'm guessing 1L winter is definitely out. Should I wait until I graduate? I'm worried I will be too busy studying for the bar/ starting a job in the 1st year out. Does anyone have any experience planning a wedding during law school? My fiancee is flexible too. Thanks guys!

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Visit/ Meeting with Admissions
« on: February 25, 2009, 06:22:23 AM »
I'm visiting a school I was waitlisted at. I'm taking the tour and everyone in the tour meets with someone in the admissions office. What is appropriate to wear? When I visited for undergrad at this institution everyone was very casual but I would like to make an effort. I have not interviewed since undergrad. Any advice on things they will ask/ I should ask? Thanks so much!

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / U of Tennessee? Michigan State?

Hey everyone. I was just accepted to Tennessee, out of state. What is your impression of the school? I have visited once. Does it have a good reputation in the South (I'm from PA but I hate the cold)? Does anyone know how generous they are with scholarships? Thanks for your help!

Also- Michigan State any thoughts? I really don't know much about the school.

Choosing the Right Law School / Help!? Applying
« on: November 04, 2008, 04:33:09 PM »
Hey everyone. I saw the post from a fellow Penn Stater asking for advice. My scores are similar to his but I wanted some suggestions of where to apply and my chances? I have a 3.8/159. I'm planning on taking the Lsat's again in December, and I'm hopeful as long as I can have a good day(my practice scores have been higher). My reach school is University of Virginia(unrealistic I know but a girl can dream). Semi-reach schools include Boston College, Tulane, Wake Forest, Temple, Alabama and Georgia. I have lots of safeties already taken care of. Would UPenn and Villanova be a waste of $? Any other suggestions? I also like the DC area. I don't have my heart set on any certain school. Thanks for your help! Best of luck to everyone!
