Affirmative Action / Re: In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants
« on: May 04, 2007, 10:14:18 PM »
I can tell you, right or wrong, that one of the arguments in favor of this involves situations where children are moved to the United States at a young age. Under at least some of the laws the undocumented citizen must have attended high school and lived for X number of years in the States. Hypothetically, this person could graduate high school only to realize that they are not the documented citizen they thought they were. Essentially, you are punishing the child for the parent's mistakes, something which is highly uncommon (if not non-existent) in our legal system. Also, at least in the state I'm familiar with, it is a highly uncommon occurence. Anyway, just putting it out there.

Where should I go next fall? / Who's going to Notre Dame

I know it's a festering TTT in decline but I am going and I figure there have to be more of you out there. So, here's a thread for all those decided on living the next three years in South Bend.

Law School Applications / Re: Northwestern..........?

Placed on hold today. Cracks me up when schools put you on hold this late. It claims that I will be WL, accepted or rejected sometime within the next month so I guess that's better than nothing. I'm ninety some percent sure going to Notre Dame but a NW acceptance and no money from ND would certainly change things.

Law School Applications / Re: MSU strikes again!!

My favorite part is the, "once again, MSU law can be found in the third tier." Way to sell yourself MSU.

aww thanks guys!  i hope those withdrawals turn into an acceptance for me... :)  is anyone else still waiting gonna email or call the adcom?  is there even a point???

This is what I'm wondering. I don't want to rush a result out of them (if, for example, they were thinking about admitting me based on withdrawals) but it's getting late in the game and I need to get rid of some of the confusion. I've been considering shooting them an email similar to a LOCI but a little shorter.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: f-ing pissed

I'll one up you. I was too lazy to go out tonight so I am sitting here drinking my triple-nightcap. And Hank, I just read your post about Subway, Radiohead, and the 300-pound woman and I have to say that it is one of my favorite posts ever. Good work.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: UCLA VS UT

Obviously more information  needs to be brought to light about residency. If you do not have residency at the start of your law school education, your won't get residency just by living in Texas and going to UT law - so in other words, the residency tuition benefit would not kick in for 2nd and 3rd year - you would just end up paying the non-resident tuition for all 3 years. You can't get residency for going to school at UT because Texas only gives residency to people who indicate that they want to make a domicile in Texas, not people who just want to comoe  and take advantage of the educational institutions. So, if you go to UT as  a non-resident, you won't get resident tuition during the subsequent years. If you need more information, you should contact the residency officers at UT because the website isn't as informative as it should or could be.

Yes, this defiantly seems like a topic worth getting worked up about.  ::)

I was trying to alert you to a perk of your recent marriage that you may not have realized yet, but hey? I can see you?d rather I take my suggestions elsewhere.

Theoretically your residency would kick in for the 2nd and 3rd year taking your costs down to $29,268.
$ 43766 + 2($29,268) =  $102,302

Your Cornell #s have you out of there at $122,865.

It?s your money, spend it however you want.


At ASW they said something about being able to gain residency later if you are working and going to school or if you purchase property. Of course, there are stipulations so UTxhalfer is correct in saying that the only real way to get the right answers is to contact the residency office personally.

To those who got a waitlist, where any of you put on hold earlier?

This is what I'm wondering. I was put on hold within the last week and this surprised me because I figured at this point they would either flat out reject me or throw me on the waitist.  As I read it I can expect something more definite by the end of April but who knows.
