Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / 2nd Deposit @ Duke
« on: May 23, 2005, 10:40:14 AM »
Does anyone know if there is a 2nd deposit for Duke? If so, what is the amount and when is it due? I am in the process of moving, and all my documents are scattered and boxed-up.


Choosing the Right Law School / UPenn or Duke?
« on: May 03, 2005, 07:18:34 AM »
hello all,

do ppl perceive a distinct difference between UPenn and Duke? how do both degrees travel to california? i assume they would travel down to florida with ease.

i have yet to visit UPenn (will very soon) - but i feel comfortable moving to Durham, and more anxious about moving into a new, and larger, city! as of now, money is not a factor.

also i am interested in clerking at some point. would like to do some public interest work... and do not particularly LOVE the cold, but would probably put up with it for 3 years if necessary.

please let me know what you think! thanks!

Choosing the Right Law School / USC over Duke/GULC (I need advice)
« on: April 20, 2005, 09:36:39 AM »
I am still in the middle of negotiating money from all three schools. So not taking into account scholarship money that I do not have yet...

which would you choose given these facts below:

1. Boyfriend with either be in San Diego if I choose USC (2 hours away), or St.Louis if I choose Duke/GULC (a timezone apart).

2. Generous offer already from Duke. Supposedly received money from USC, but it probably won't be (without negotiating) comparable to Duke's offer. GULC may or may not match the offer.

3. LA v. Durham v. DC (DC I am not thrilled about, however)

4. Interest in clerking (not sure how realistic this is, I've heard from some that it's very difficult to obtain a clerkship, others act like it's possible, rather than impossible) - interest in working in the public sector. Duke's loan repayment program is superb (isn't it??).

5. Small class size is a good thing - both USC and Duke offer that.

6. COL is lower in Durham. But, I truly think QOL is higher in LA. I really want to live in an apartment alone the first semester... and I would be able to do that at Duke, but may have to room with someone at USC.

7. Have a decent interest in practicing in California (my sister is there), but really don't want to commit to a city this early on. I just don't know. Duke and GULC degrees would travel relatively easily to Cali, no?

8. Professors are respectable at all three schools. Students at Duke seem down to earth - perhaps a bit homogenous. While students at USC/GULC seemed more diverse, and for me, seemed more upbeat. But given that I like a more personal environment, USC has the upper-hand over GULC.

Thoughts? Feel free to comment on GULC, but I'm really interested in USC v. Duke.

Anything you can comment on would be great. Because I am really undecided about where and what I want to practice, I am thinking that I need to make the choice that will leave my options open upon graduation - meaning go to a great school with many opportunities.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / GULC "Open House"?
« on: March 24, 2005, 07:28:33 AM »
Can anyone tell me what the open house is, exactly? It looks like there are two: 3/31 and 4/1. I dont recall seeing a schedule of events or anything. How does this differ from the receptions they are holding?



just wondering if anyone was going...
