Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Buying your way in?

While it's true that having someone who couldn't succeed at Cooley buy their way into Harvard might not work, I think most people who could gain acceptance into lower Tier 1 schools would probably do fine at T14, even if they're near the bottom, as their options would still be more going to Harvard than if they'd gone to Loyola or something.

I agree, I've always felt once you're into a school it's not that hard to get by.  Law schools used to flunk people out, but now it's a small percentage that start and don't graduate.

I don't have the option of buying my way in, but I had a friend tell me that a certain number of people do every year at top schools.  I just thought it was interesting, all the people on this board giving Cooley a hard time should consider that the top schools apparently aren't perfect either.

I've heard rumors of people buying their way into schools.  Has anyone else heard of people donating money to get accepted?

who cares about whether it is advantageous or not for the purpose of applying to law school, why would you want to graduate early?  you'll never be able to get another gig like undergrad and I suggest you live it up.  Especially if you plan to go to law school you can study any subject, i.e. something you really enjoy and maintain good grades while consistently going out 4 nights a week, and still having freetime to kick around doing whatever sports etc you like.  I'm cring just thinking about how much I miss undergrad.  Grad school just isn't the same school stuff is fine, but you just can't replicate the undergrad social environment, you're friends are gone, worrying about getting up for work at 9 intead of drinking till 9 and getting stupid...I'm rambling

I kinda of think it'll be an advantage (maybe I'm just hoping so) b/c it makes us look like we've really worked hard to finish early.

Haven't you ever heard that graduating in 4 is like leaving the party at 11

Yeah, but wait till the guys at Darden Business School start talking to you, boasting of seven figure jobs and stratospheric GMATs. You'll be putty in their hands.

If you were out at a bar, and someone told you their LSAT/GMAT/MCAT score, wouldn't you think they were a bit arrogant?

No, if they were high enough I'd sleep with them

if im a law student at uva or any school with a party/frat ug crowd, i will be infiltrating the ug camps and banging freshman. 

i will bridge the gap between the geeky law students and the sorostitutes they are all old enough and prestigious enough to finally bag.

that's the spirit

just teach the geeky law students how to casually drop the law school bit and it should be quick work

exactly.  what ug girl wouldnt dig a guy who is a few years older and on his way to a six figure job? 

::raises hand::  I turned down a guy with a multi-million dollar trust fund because of how he treated his roommate's pet!   ;D

I'd like some input on this issue actually.  Why do girls go home with guys based upon things like law school, or wealth, etc.  They future job prospects shouldn't really be a factor in deciding who to shack-up with, I can garuntee that guys don't take it into consideration.  We are shallow and generally one-demensional though, at least when drunk at bars.

I attend Michigan, and I don't really think it's fun...but I think that might depend on two major things: where you're from and what you like to do. If you're one of those people who thinks getting drunk is the way to go, then you'll be fine at Michigan or anywhere else. Otherwise, I think the most entertainment to be found is obviously somewhere near or in a city. Sometimes, I wish I would have chosen Penn, because I don't think we "bust our asses" at Michigan...although I know many people would disagree with me...still, I have a lot of free time, and I spend much of it bored because 1) other people are always working and complaining about working, and 2) I don't think there's much of anything fun around here in walking distance and I don't have a car or anything). I'm not even from a city--I'm from somewhere where I'm used to being bored, but I'm sick of being bored, especially knowing that I *will* eventually be busting my ass when I get a job. I want to have fun for three years, and, unfortunately, I--and some other people--find Michigan pretty boring. The slack we get academically, in my opinion, lends itself to plenty of opportunities to have a good time...there's just not much here providing a good time.

whoa having time outside of school is a bad thing?  and nothing at michigan to do?

they have a great football team, you could go to a game
or enjoy the undergrads, if all the law students are busy studying I suggest you look for one or preferably several fit undergrads to spend time quality with

also "busting your ass" is overrated, why bust your ass if you can do well and enjoy yourself, I suggest you think about the drinking comment and maybe start
I'd also like to point out that just anywhere is not a good place for someone who enjoys drinking and the social side of life, the scenery is extremely important when drinking...
