Transferring / Spring Transfer
« on: July 03, 2007, 12:37:17 PM »
I started 1L thinking I would try to transfer to a higher ranked school, but given the time it took for grades to post and lack of time due to my summer associate position I would be the very last transfer applicant @ most schools. I know that some schools allow spring transfers and wanted to see if anyone knew of the T14 that would allow a spring transfer? My plan would be to continue at my school for fall semester and try to transfer in the spring or work in the legal position I have now which would allow for a fair amount of work exp(taking a leave of absence for fall semester from my current school) and hope to transfer in the spring as a 2L. My 1L grades are pretty legit(A,A,A,A,B+,C-the bush league grade ending what could have been a phenomanal year).

any feedback would be greatly appreciated

« on: July 21, 2006, 02:31:52 PM »
Trying to figure out a budget for this year. Hopefully someone from the area can shed some light. All I have so far is....

T-Pass: $465
Anything else?

Incoming 1Ls / $1100 month expensive?
« on: June 20, 2006, 01:33:32 PM »
I most likely will be moving into a two bedroom apartment in Boston. It is $2200 amonth(1100 a person), how does this compare to the lving situation of others in the area?It is a gorgeous brownstone and seemed expensive at first, but after seeing what $1800 will get you, this seems like a deal. What do you think average utilities will be?

I have a hard time turning down a full ride at suffolk in a city that i love. I am also a rankings slut and would love to attend a higher ranked school, but would rather not pay 150,000. IS it ok if i punish my ego for a bit, go to a lower ranked school and have little to no debt post j.d? On the other hand should I sack up and undertake a financial burden in order to appease the prestige whore in me?

Law School Admissions / Vandy????
« on: April 24, 2006, 03:42:16 PM »
Any news on vandy? Iíve been looking around for the last couple of days and have heard little on lsd. I checked lsn and it seems like many are still pending. In the last month there have been 11 waitlists, and 2 rejections. The last two acceptances were a little over a month ago. I am hoping this is the big week? Any feedback out there???????

Choosing the Right Law School / How tttt is suffolk?
« on: April 24, 2006, 06:15:52 AM »
I have a friend who goes to Suffolk and loves it. She turned down wake and American for it (massive $$$$ and loves Boston), and she seems to be very pleased with her decision. I have heard things all over the place about the school. Anyone have some light to shed? I have done a couple of searches and came up with posts about some idiot lawyer berating a firm in an email, and heard it does very well in Boston. I will most likely be somewhere else, but I love the idea of Boston and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Would anyone like to contribute to the top 5 reasons to go Suffolk and top 5 to stay away?
1.Boston rocks debt
5.Nantucket reds are acceptable

4.being at the bottom of the barrel in bean town.

Choosing the Right Law School / cooley rankings
« on: April 17, 2006, 02:10:57 PM »
how serious are cooley's rankings? Would anyone ever consider these as an alternative to US news?I am just wondering because it puts some schools I have thought about attending much higher than us news(mainly suffolk).

169,2.77,great soft factors...the last hope for a top school, is vandy a false hope?
