Choosing the Right Law School / BU vs. Cornell
« on: March 26, 2007, 09:38:14 PM »
I know Cornell is higher ranked, but doing a lot of comparing they seem pretty similar.  I don't know what type of law I want to go into, but probably start in coporate to pay off some debt and then do more public interest type work.  I have visited Boston and lovelovelove it and am visiting Cornell soon.  I will probably want to work in the NYC area post graduation.  If I like Cornell, I will go, but if I don't enjoy the rural environment would it be "bad" to choose BU?  Both gave me good money, btw.

Choosing the Right Law School / Cornell vs Fordham for NYC jobs
« on: March 05, 2007, 09:27:20 AM »
I've gotten into both Cornell and Fordham.  I am aware that Cornell is the top-ranked school and am going to visit soon.  However, location wise, Fordham offers me advantages, since I am from the area.  I don't want to do big law, but figure I will have to do it for a little to pay off debt before going into either public interest or maybe government.  I want to stay in the NYC area post graduation.  What do you think?  I am leaning towards Cornell, but I really would love to be in NYC ... I am also waiting on scholarship information from some of my other schools, which may change my mind, too.

Choosing the Right Law School / So what if ...

I've already been accepted to the school I think I want to go to, but now I have a question.  I am currently taking a course which is just impossible.  I am taking it pass-fail.  It's my own fault, I shouldn't have signed up for a "fun" course that is incredibly hard second semester senior year, but either way I did.  If I fail, but it really has nothing to do with law or any course I have ever taken for that matter, will a school reverse its decision when I have to send in my final transcript?  It wouldn't hinder me from graduating any, and I don't think it goes into my gpa since its pass/fail.  Thanks!

So, my friend just told me that their status checker just went to second evaluation.  What does that mean?  Thanks.

Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / Why Penn
« on: December 11, 2006, 03:23:45 PM »
I posted this in another section, but I think it fits better here:
If I wanted to do the optional essay for Penn, do I do all 3?  Is 1 fine?  If doing 1 is fine, is it okay to do the one asking about background, ect instead of the Why Penn, or do I have to write a Why Penn?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Cardozo
« on: November 28, 2006, 04:07:45 PM »
Just got into Cardozo which I am so excited about.  Nevertheless, I was wondering, does any one know if they give out scholarship information straight away or if that follows it?

Law School Admissions / Another Cornell App Question
« on: October 23, 2006, 12:41:13 PM »
There's one part in the app where it tells you to attach a list of your extracirrulars and awards and such.  Later, they ask for a resume.  I'm assuming they want two different responses, even though the resume includes the answers to the first.  Am I right?  If I am, are you just listing your activities and awards, explaining, copy right out of your resume.  I thinking about merely copying and pasting out of my resume ... what do you say?

I can't figure out the commas, and I really want to send in my apps:

I am blessed that my hard work, backed by a strong education will be able to lead me towards a satisfying career, and only wish that my parents could have had the same opportunities.

Let me know what you guys think!
