Transferring / Would you stay or would you go?
« on: July 17, 2006, 11:30:05 AM »
Hi All:

What would you do?  Would you stay at a Tier 1 (Mid 20s) school in the top 5% of the class with Law Review, school activities and 1/3 tuition? 

Or would you transfer to:
1) Berkeley?
2) NYU?

Goals:  Work either in the South (Florida/Georgia) or West coast (California).  Looking to Clerk (Federal) first.

Constructive Criticism would be much appreciated.  Thank you.

Transferring / Help with Trasferring/Do I have a shot?
« on: May 18, 2006, 09:34:28 AM »
I didn't mean to insult anyone.  I was honestly trying to get help, since its impossible to find much help anywhere in terms of transferring.

If I insulted or offended anyone, those were not my intentions.  I hope deleting the posts helps.  Best of luck to everyone!

Choosing the Right Law School / Help with Loan Question!
« on: July 17, 2005, 06:56:34 PM »
Hiya all...I'm filling out my promissory note and I noticed that it gives me a choice to pay the interest on my unsubsidezed $10,000 loan while I'm in school.  Does anyone know how much that will cost me per semester?  Or per month?  Do I pay monthly?  Or the interest all up front? 

Please help.  I'd like to make the decision of whether I can afford to pay the interest and avoid capitalization tonite.

Choosing the Right Law School / MCCA Scholarship

Did anybody else apply for this?

I want to know when we can expect to hear back with winners.

And if not, hurry up!  You have till your post office closes today.   :P

I'm just curious to know how much response it actually got.  It's a brand new scholarship.

Choosing the Right Law School / Giles B Sutherland Scholarship
« on: June 01, 2005, 09:25:24 AM »
For all of you who applied for the Giles B. Sutherland Scholarship:

"We had planned to meet and make the selection in late May but work got in the way. We meet tomorrow and the winners will be contacted this week."

Also, I know competition makes reporting scholarships, well, almost impossible here, but if anyone is feeling kind and wants to help a future starving lawyer, if you know of any upcoming scholarships that I can apply to, please PM me.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I was notified I'm in Group One.

FYI (verbatim):
"we expect to make 20-25 additional offers of admission...the Admissions Committee has re-reviewed all application files of Provisional List candidates...the Committee has placed applicants into one of three groups...Within each group, there is no ordinal ranking...In terms of size of each group, there are between 35 and 70 candidates in each group."

Hope this helps you all.

Choosing the Right Law School / UF Financial Aid?
« on: May 01, 2005, 09:01:49 AM »
Has anyone received ANYTHING from their financial aid office? 

I've decided on Emory but I was curious as to what financial aid package UF would offer me.  So far, I've received nothing and calling them was, for the most part, frustrating and quite disheartening.

Incoming 1Ls / Emory: Where should I live?
« on: April 21, 2005, 08:13:19 AM »
I budgeted about 500-600 a month for rent (splitting it with my boyfriend, of course).  I need advise as to where to live in Emory.  So far (on that price range), I'm considering:

Gables: Park at Briarcliff ($580)
Kenco Apartments ($515)

Any other suggestions on other places or those above?  Please advise.
