Regarding the way the schools treats its applicants, I have to say it's actually been quite pleasant. I've been having issues with a bank approving a loan, and Dean Ellis (Dean of Admissions) has personally been helping me out via e-mail. She replies promptly and is very helpful. I've also had some pleasant dealings with the financial aid office as well.
FWIW, I've heard horror stories of T14 schools' admissions staff treating applicants like *&^%. While it'd be nice to see some level of "customer service" from law schools, it's not a factor in how good the school is.
I'm not surprised in the least to hear that Suffolk fell to T4 and, frankly, I am very happy to hear it. Their administration -- from the Dean of Admissions all the way up to the Dean of Students -- sucks.
That is the least logical reason I've heard for agreeing with a law school's ranking. The fact they gave some pervert a degree says nothing and in no way affects their ranking. Nice way to vent.
Dell = waste of money. I've had two and they both crapped out in less than three years. Once you go Mac, you never go back!
I got an iBook (first Mac) in 2004. Then I got a MacBook in 2007. Now I have a ThinkPad T400, and I gave my MacBook to my dad. The T400 outperforms my MacBook in every sense (aside from the OS, but that's debatable), and cost about $700 less than a semi-equivalent MacBook today. It's also tougher.
Yes to the PT program, but it still doesn't add up. There's a discussion on TLS.com about it going on. Everyone else who created their own modified (yet fairly similar) rankings put Suffolk back in with the T3 crowd (based on a variety of numbers). It seems someone at Suffolk forgot to give favors to the USNWR crew.
Thanks for the info everyone. I've decided to stay with the Mac (so much nicer). I heard that approximately 40% of the students at my school use Macs, and the school even offers MS Office for MAC for free (I thought it was just Windows originally).
