Wait List / Boston College?!?!
« on: April 10, 2005, 07:58:32 AM »
again, with the surprising waitlists.  apparently, no love from any Boston schools for me.  got the letter yesteday.

Where should I go next fall? / Vandy/GW/Fordham/USC/WashU
« on: April 06, 2005, 12:08:06 AM »
So Wash U is pretty much out of the question.
If I want to work in NYC, make a lot of money (let's not lie)& be  happy -- make a decision for me!  What would be the best place to eventually land a firm job in NYC?  Fordham?  Or would it be USC cause it's the best school out of the bunch?

Law School Applications / Michigan phone call
« on: April 05, 2005, 07:34:33 PM »
So I got a phone call from the Michigan campus today, but I missed it and they didn't leave a message.  I have no friends who would be calling me from a campus extension - does anyone know if Michigan calls their applicants before making a decision?  Could this be amazing, thrilling, ridiculous news?

Acceptances / In at USC
« on: April 05, 2005, 12:48:52 AM »
Just got a big packet today in the mail.

Officially, now, I have an even smaller clue of where I want to be in the fall.  I know I want to stay on the east coast probably - but three years in Sunny California might be too hard to pass up!

Wait List / Waitlisted at BU??!?!?!?!?!?
« on: April 02, 2005, 02:32:26 PM »
Whaaaa?  Got the letter in the mail today.  I thought I would have been accepted without a problem.  That'll put a damper on your day.

Denials / Duke Denial
« on: March 22, 2005, 11:31:16 AM »
Got it in the mail yesterday.  Pretty much assuming that I'll end up at GW or Fordham this fall, at this rate.  Gonna be some rough decision-making for sure.

Anyone thinking of going?  Do you know if Fordham would be able to shack you up or would I have to stay with friends?
Trying to make a difficult decision between Fordham & GW - figure I might as well visit the two.

Where should I go next fall? / make my decision for me, please

Every time I get accepted by another school, I still find myself struggling with my decision.  There are very few schools that would be a sure "lock" for me - and I've been getting rejected by all of them.  Still, in 30 years, I want to be doing some sort of civil liberties law, but in the years directly following law school I see myself much more in a "BIGlaw" firm of some persuasion, hopefulyl in NYC.  I've been accepted to Wash U St. Louis w/money, George Washington, Vanderbilt and Fordham.  I understand that Fordham is strong in NYC - but it is substantially stronger than the others, enough to outweigh it's obvious lack of national reputation?  If you were me, where would you go?

Acceptances / In at Vandy
« on: March 15, 2005, 09:19:57 AM »
In at Vandy - got the letter/big packet in the mail last week, I believe (I was out of town).

Acceptances / Anyone going to GW admit days?
« on: March 03, 2005, 06:29:43 PM »
I just got a little brouchure in the mail yesterday.  Not sure if I want to pony up for the flight though - in general, is it a good idea to go to a lot of these?  Or would it be better to wait til later and visit individually once I hear from  more schools?
