Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Berkeley (Boalt) Visit

Any more impressions?
How did the careers office strike you? Helpful? Good? Bad?
What about the rest of the campus? I've never been to Berkeley... good atmosphere? Cool? Too messy? What about the food? As good as they say?
was the library nice? Tell us everything you can. It's so helpful to those deciding AND those applying!

will be 23 when I start, but 27 by the time I leave, as I'm hoping to do a joint degree!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Maybe we can keep our Macs

No, because I don't know where I'll be yet. But I love my mac and I think your discovery is marvellous!
Hope you can keep yours and I look forward to hearing more!

Cornell is, clearly and without a doubt the better choice. Better job prospects, more prestige, more vnational.... it seems obvious to me. Even if there are more Fordham alums. You won't have trouble getting a job in NYC from Cornell. And the atmosphere and classes are amazing. Go!

What's ole miss?

Jules - you're numbers are great for Hastings - are yousure they aren't doing a yield protection thing on you? I'm no expert but that happenned to my friends this and last admissions cycle. It may just be that if you stay on the list and send a letter to say you will definitely be attending if offered a place (or that you're still very interested) that they'll take you off the list. good luck wherever you decide to go!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT and girlfriend/boyfriend's?
« on: March 29, 2005, 04:42:45 PM »
My LSAT study was very time consuming, and it created huge strain between me and my then boyfriend. He decided I had become 'boring', or rather that I am a boring person in general. He was not particularly supportive and we broke up. He couldn't see how much this mattered to me at that particular time, and decided to make a character judgement (which by all objective measures isn;t true) on that. But I don't think things have to be this way. If you love this girl, explain to her how much this matters to you and how important it is. If your relationship is love (and I don't doubt that it is) she should be willing to lay off the partying for a bit and go out for a meal with you instead or to a movie or whatever. Studying and partying hard is a recipe for exhausting yourself and burning out. If this relationship lasts there will be many times in life whenn one person has to make sacrifices for another. This is a small, short-term sacrifice, so your relationship should handle it.

The Boalt admissions office is one of the nicest I have spoken to. Really willing to help, courteous etc. I think I read somewhere on here that even their rejection letters are nice! If you want horrible admissions offices, try NYU and Penn. Underimpressed to say the least.

none of this makes any sense. I'm thinking of applying there in October but their acceptances and rejections seem all over the place. I just can't assess my chances. Great school tho. but you all have other great options, so that's cool.
