Law School Applications / Did anyone else go to decision at Michigan today?
« on: February 15, 2008, 11:36:26 AM »
I received a deferral email earlier and have gone to decision today... just wondering if I'm part of a large group of decisions going out...  ;D

Thanks!

Just a friendly reminder that the deadline for NU's financial aid (for grants and scholarships) is 2/15/08. Need Access and FAFSA due by this date...

FYI: I confirmed with the office that they do not need copies of submitted tax returns by this date to be considered for grants.

Law School Applications / and the award for my first denial goes to....

... U Chicago!   ;D

Thanks, Chicago! I'll always remember my first  ;)
After my acceptance to NU, I'm honestly not that disappointed.

... So just when I am coming to grips with the fact that I will need to take out massive amounts of loans to pay for school, appearing in my mailbox is a dangling carrot (cleverly disguised as a letter) of $35K per year....

Someone want to remind me of the difference in employment opportunities between NU and BC?  ;D

Law School Applications / Northwestern admits... dates of ASW??
« on: January 06, 2008, 08:07:45 PM »
Hello fellow Northwestern admits!  ;D

For those of you who have already received your packets/access to the website, would one of you mind PM'ing me and letting me know if they are having an ASW, and if so, the dates? I am trying to request time off from work in advance...

Thanks and congrats!

I have been complete at UC Berkeley for about 2 months now, and have not received either a deferral email or a decision of any kind... do you think this spells certain doom?  ??? :-\

Where should I go next fall? / UCLA (in-state tuition) vs. Georgetown....
« on: December 30, 2007, 09:42:02 PM »
... I am currently a CA resident and most likely will see myself ending up in CA for work. In-state tuition at UCLA is a huge plus for me, but I am wondering if GULC would open more doors for jobs, etc (not sure if less GULC students out on the west coast works in my favor or against it).

I would love to hear your thoughts and impressions about both schools.

Thanks!!  ;D

Wondering what your opinions are on a lower T14 (#14) vs. Vandy (16)... does the "T14" really have that much pull over schools very close in ranking, or does this only really make a difference when you compare the higher-ranked T14's (i.e. Michigan, Stanford, UChicago) with non-T14s?

A little about me: I am not convinced I want to enter BIGLAW, but am interested in possibilities of clerkships and, ultimately, involvement in criminal law or appellate practice. I am attracted to GULC's location and clinical programs, but to Vandy's collegiate environment, smaller size, faculty accessibility, and new Law & Human Behavior program.

Assume no merit money for either, although I am in the process of applying for Vandy's full tuition scholarships.

Thanks!  ;D

Hello everyone,

My Vanderbilt status checker indicates a decision was mailed on 11/19... hopefully this means good news!   ;)
