Choosing the Right Law School / Am I a fool???? Tulane$$$$ v. UNC$
« on: June 14, 2006, 05:45:24 PM »
Nice man from UNC-Chapel Hill called today to get an impression of my intent to stay on their waitlist.  I had no idea what to tell him so I said I'd consider it with money.  Their offer is 5,000/year.  Tulane's offer is 30,000/year.  I have an additional 7,000 for my 1st year and 6,000 for my 2nd year in outside scholarship money.  Tulane= full ride for first two years.  UNC= full ride for second year if I can obtain residency.  I'm supposed to call Monday to virtually assure the committee that if they accept me, I'll say yes.  I have no idea what to do.

Here's a little info about me: I'm pretty liberal.  I'm kinda sick of small towns (I've lived in them my whole life), but every town is different and I don't think I should judge Chapel Hill so quickly.  I'd love to practice in Atlanta, Houston, or somewhere in California.  I have no idea what I want to practice; I considered public interest, but now I have no idea. 

My immediate feeling was to say no, but I have no idea why I thought that.  I should at least give it some consideration.  Tell me what you think...

Black Law Students / Here's Another One: Howard vs. Case Western...
« on: May 02, 2006, 03:44:43 PM »
My roommate just sent off a seat deposit + enrollment fee ($500?) to Howard on Friday; they haven't received it yet.  She got a call from Case Western today. They're giving her $23,000/yr, while Howard's giving her $7500/yr.  Tuition @ Case Western = $33,000; Howard = $18,000.  She'll be paying about the same out of pocket for tuition, but she likes the fact that Cleveland has a lower cost of living and that it's somewhat closer to home.  We're both pretty broke and living cheap in MS.  She really wants to live in a one bedroom apt. off campus.  At Howard, she'll absolutely have to live on campus to keep costs down. I'm thinking of telling her that Howard is the best route.  What do y'all think she should do?  We go to a predominantly Caucasian school and I think she'd really like the HBCU experience that she'd get at Howard Law.  Do you think she could get her deposit back if she asks very, very, very nicely and soon?  She's tearing her hair out right now and I'm not much help...

p.s. she wants to practice corporate law, but has no idea where she wants to practice.  Also, she's kinda leaning towards Howard because of the hot men  ;)

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Emory Waitlist!

Emory Waitlist... damn, damn, DAMN!  Anyone else?  Who is dead set on attending and will run to Atlanta if they're admitted? Anyone withdrawing soon?  ;)

Black Law Students / Is anyone black heading to Tulane in the fall???

Hey, is anyone here going to Tulane in the fall?  Does anyone know of someone else who is heading down there?  I have reason to believe that I might be one of only a very few.   :-\ Thanks.
