Law School Applications / UMICH over Columbia?
« on: May 13, 2005, 11:47:48 PM »
I want to work in NYC at a bigfirm and I know Columbia is a slighty better law school and probably places a little better in NYC, but is it that much of a difference? I liked UMICH a lot better from visiting both schools and it would be a lot cheaper for me ...... this assuming im avg or better within my class, I should be able to get a job at a top firm in nyc? UMICH is a top 5 in terms of prestige from lawyers and judges so that makes me believe i should be ok

thank you

Law School Applications / top 5 law schools .....
« on: May 12, 2005, 08:48:35 PM »
I think we would all say Yale and Harvard are one at two, but how do you guys see the next few? I see stanford as more of a west coast school than a national powerhouse ..... its top ten, but its only #2-#3 because each coast needs a powerhouse .....

id say columbia, penn and michgan would be 3-5 .... in terms of overall prestige among lawyers, judges etc ..... an NYU/Stanford may be a step below in my opinion

any other comments ....

im still deciding between columbia and umich

what exactly do you say when you call? do you come up with questions? how do you assure ull get credit for calling, but make it seem legit? do you just come out and say, this is so and so and i just wanted to reconfirm my interest?

Law School Applications / waitlist info
« on: April 28, 2005, 11:37:37 PM »
do all schools always go to their waitlist or do years exist when a lawschool will not have to go to their waitlist? i hear that most schools have a stronger applicant pool this yr, but thats only because applicants applied to more schools than ever ... basically schools assume they have a stronger pool, but they'll have many of these applicants going to different schools ....

any response?
