Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Ole Miss Law
« on: April 25, 2005, 07:47:54 AM »
I visited Oxford this weekend for the first time in order to get an apartment.   And, WOW, I absolutely love oxford. What an awesome little town.  The houses are beautiful, the weather wasnt even good for there and I loved it, the girls - well - damn (classy and attractive), and the campus was amazing.   After all of the statements about the law school building, I really didnt think that it was that bad at all.   Needless to say I am incredibly happy that I chose Ole Miss over Kentucky, and my bank account will be too.   Look forward to seeing all of my future classmates, -- southern wannabe

It wasnt purely financial, but that definitely had alot to do with it.  Plus Im interested in staying in the south, AL, TN, GA, NC, SC,  and I actually think that mississippi might have a small edge over kentucky in those areas, although kentucky does better else where.    But Ole Miss has alot to offer too, so I guess it just came down to the point where i didnt think that kentucky was that much better to be worth the difference financially.  I visited UK, it was nice, but nothing special.   From what I hear,  Oxford is a great place, so Im going to role the dice.       
    And yes, the Ole Miss hotties played into my decision :-).   I only hope that at least some of them like my chi-town accent.

Thank you for your responses. 
    Just to clarify, I do not actually believe that I can 'become' a southern gentleman, it was merely an interesting way to sign my message.  Im going to Mississippi for a change of scenery.  My best friend is from birmingham, and my grandpa is from tennessee, and after visiting them many times I have grown quite fond of the southern disposition and the southern way of life.  I happen to reject prejudice in respect to southern versus northern differences (in fact I happen to like the southern way more), and while im sure that Ill have to deal with being unaccepted to a certain degree myself, I can only hope that over time I will be accepted as someone who has similar values, life goals, and desires. 
     Im sure that there are plenty of northerners who look down on the south, in fact I have dealt with that already when I tell people that I am going to mississippi for law.  Believe me, i've had to justify it over and over in merely a few days.  Isn't there something to be said for the fact that I want to spend at the very least three years of my life down in Mississippi? (and my plan is to permanently move to the south)
I may never be called a southerner or be considered a southern gentleman, but cant someone be a little southern at heart?

My best friend's family has accepted me whole heartedly, I just hope that with time and getting to know me, those at Mississippi will do the same.  signing off -  Southern wannabe.

Well this Chicago boy has made up his mind, it is  going to be(ridiculously affordable) Ole Miss for me.  Anybody else out there decided on Ole miss?  Id like to hear from you.   

Also, few questions for those of you in the know. 

1) where are some places to look for apartments, and what prices should i expect?

2) Is the law building as decrepit as I have heard?

3) Is the campus as gorgeous as I have heard?

And if you havent figured out, im going there blind.  No visits.  I was going to go to the open house, but one car wreck later and Im without a car, so that is out of the cards.  Any info about the school would be nice.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Kentucky visit gone sour
« on: April 03, 2005, 07:23:10 PM »
Okay, so my actual visit to kentucky was fine, and the open house was good too.   But, on my way out of the parking lot a guy completely ran a red light and smashed into my drivers side door.   I was pinned in and the door had to be pryed open and cut off. and the car was totalled.   Ha, it wasnt a fun way to end the open house.   On a positive note I was ridiculously lucky and didnt break anything or have any serious injuries, other than really bad soreness. hopefully the guy has insurance, havent found out yet.   Still thinking I might go to Kentucky next year too, thatll make for a good scholarship application essay :-).       

Alright so I called and they said that a letter was in the mail and should be received shortly.   I am thinking that if it was an acceptance that she would have just told me that I was accepted, and since she didnt, that it is a rejection or waitlist.   Any thoughts on whether this is true?

I know that there have been some rejections posted to Tennessee these last few days, but has there been any acceptances to any of the above schools over the last week???    Im looking for some hope here --- is there any?   Chances are im almost certainly 99.5 % out of Georgia and Wake, but any acceptances for   UTK???????
