Incoming 1Ls / housing- distance from your school
« on: May 20, 2006, 04:37:00 PM »
Just curious how far away everyone will be living from the school you will be attending.  I'm moving to Orange County, CA area and I'm trying to decide which area I want to move to.  How far away do you think is too far?

Financial Aid / Private loan question
« on: May 18, 2006, 08:04:04 PM »
I am in the process of applying for private loans and I was going to apply to a few places to see what rates I can get.  Now, I just recently charged my laptop to my credit card and I was wondering if having that charge on my card would affect the interest rates I would be offered.  I have paid off my card in full every month previous and have good credit.  I just don't know if having a large charge on my card while applying for the loans would be viewed negatively.  Any insight would be appreciated.

I received my acceptance to Chapman today!   :)  More than anything I'm just happy the whole process is now over!  I'll be withdrawing my seat from Suffolk.  Ate the deposit but oh well.  I think I would have been happy there but I'm really happy to be going back to California.

Good luck to everyone else!  :)

Just wondering if anyone else is still waiting on Chapman.  I'll be attending their open house tomorrow but I'm still waiting on a decision... ???

Choosing the Right Law School / Syracuse and Suffolk
« on: March 24, 2006, 05:05:46 PM »
As far as job prospects go do you think I would do any better at a particular school.  From what I hear Suffolk has a pretty loyal alumni base in Boston but then there is also a lot of competition for jobs there with all the surrounding schools.  Syracuse has the bigger name but I don't know if it would do any better regionally than Suffolk.  Any thoughts?

Choosing the Right Law School / Syracuse vs. Pace and $$$
« on: March 04, 2006, 11:03:24 AM »
From what I've read it sounds like just between the two schools Syracuse is the better school but I would come out with less debt at Pace.  The scholarship is $10,000 renewable assuming I do well enough.  I'm from San Diego living in Phoenix so I'm trying to learn more about both areas as well.   I've read a little info but more opinions/advice would be helpful.

Well it was going to be a reach anyway.  Came in a standard envelope.  Still holding out for Las Vegas and Chapman.
