Transferring / Re: Transferring from full time to part time program

If you want layman's prestige ... when I was looking at GW, none of my relatives had even heard of it. :(  But then again, they aren't hiring partners at major law firms either.
 
If you were choosing a year ago, I'd say Georgetown.  However, GW has high enough cache within the legal world that it's just not worth the transfer trouble.

General Board / Re: Any currect UVA students?

Some guy brought his mom to UVA Admitted Students Weekend in 2006 (maybe 2005?) and during one of the panel discussions, Mom raised her hand and was dissatisfied with campus meal options. 

She said something like, "This will be the first time he's lived away from home.  How is he supposed to eat???"  Apparently the admissions panel just sort of mumbled through something, and all of his classmates sat there in shock.  Then they all ran home and posted about him on the LSD pre-law board.

General Board / Re: General deferral question

Well, one of the things that law school are ranked on is the rate of students who attend after being admitted.  If they have reason to believe that you won't be attending again, then you may be less likely to be admitted.

Most law schools have a process where you actually "defer" admission that doesn't require you to reapply next year.  Usually you must put down the nonrefundable deposit, however.  Some schools will allow most students to defer, but some require that you have extenuating circumstances or a compelling reason to defer.  Check in with the admissions office about the process of deferring admission.

LOL.  OP, did your mom attend the UVA admitted students weekend a few years back? :)

If so, she's now an LSD legend.

If they're putting "2L" status on the resumes, I hope they checked with career services first...

Another good way to get to know professors is to ask them about their papers and research, or cases on the cutting edge in their fields.
