General Off-Topic Board / Spamming on LSN

Is anyone else having people spam them on LSN? 

I've had to delete about 20 Viagra posts in the past 24 hours.  Is there any way to avoid this, besides not allowing comments?

Incoming 1Ls / Waiting . . .
« on: April 03, 2007, 04:18:13 PM »
I hate waiting on both waitlists and with decisions.  This stinks.

I went to Fordham this weekend for the ASW.  I really like the school, the feel, and the focus on practical education.  I was all set.  Then, I find out today that I got a scholarship from BU that saves me almost $60,000 in loans.  Now, BU is back in the equation.  I haven't been able to check out BU yet--I just got admitted two weeks ago.  I'm going to check it out this next Monday.  I don't really care where I live during school or when I graduate, but I know I would like to be in a major city in the Northeast.  I don't care if I get a job in BIGLAW, but I would definitely like to work in a firm when I graduate.  The scholarship is automatically renewable (I need to stay in good standing, but other than that I'm set).  I would love to hear what everyone thinks--especially people who may be in the same position as far as deciding between BU and Fordham.

Financial Aid / Expected Loans for Law School??
« on: March 05, 2007, 04:31:17 PM »
I'm worried about how much money I'm going to have to take out in loans (as I'm sure a lot of people are).  I didn't get offered any scholarships at the schools I'm deciding between, and I'm pretty sure this means I'm going to be taking out a bunch of loans to pay for school (150,000 - 180,000).  Is this normal?  I mean, how do people pay for law school.  I thought that most people take out loans to fund their education, but some people posting have led me to believe otherwise. What is everyone else doing?  Is taking out that much in loans normal?  Or if not normal, not completely ridiculous?

I really need some guidance on this and would appreciate any comments anyone has!

I would love people's opinions on how to decide between a tier 2 with a pretty significant scholarship and a top 50, not top 25 school with none.  I'm really torn between American and Loyola Chicago.  Is it worth the extra money to go to a tier 1 school?  Or am I better off going to Loyola, paying less and maybe being ranked higher.  I went to visit Loyola this weekend and I really liked it.  What do people think?
