Where should I go next fall? / Re: Michigan Summer Start

As S.J. mentioned, it's just the ED program. From my emails with the admissions staff, and what there is on the website, the summer program sounds really enticing.

However, like all ED programs, if you are accepted it's binding, so consider that when thinking of applying.

Law School Rankings / Re: Civil Rights Law?

Looks like Harvard is a big shot in civil rights, they have a law journal dedicated to civil rights and civil liberties. I think I will apply there as well now. It's an EXTREME reach, but shoot for the stars...

Hadn't thought of it that way. Only problem is that I don't imagine I'd want to stay in Minnesota after graduation. Guess that since less than 5% go to NY and very few go to Chicago even the median salary couldn't be high.

Guess I'm going to try to swing through there when I drive across the country.

Law School Rankings / Civil Rights Law?
« on: August 11, 2005, 09:17:14 PM »
USNWR doesn't give any indication of rankings for Civil Rights Law and it seems to be really difficult to find information on the study of this branch of law. Does anyone know if there are schools that are really well regarded in the field?

None of the big schools seem to allow you to focus on civil rights law, but do any ofthem have a solid reputation for civil rights profs or anything of the sort?

Climate doesn't bother me at all, I'm Canadian. It will be a bit colder than Toronto, but I can deal with it. Besides that, it's a good hockey town, so that's a big plus. I tend to think that they would be pretty Canadian-like in many ways.

They also offer tuition discounts to residents of Manitoba. I wonder if I couldestablish residency there somehow. That would be sweet.

The one thing that does concern me is the 75th percentile wage is only 100k. That's really low, lower than a lot of schools ranked far behind Minnesota and kind of upsetting.

I'll be driving across the continent before school starts in September. Maybe I should tour the campus then, stop by and talk to some people in admissions?

I'm rather interested in this school. It's a traditional top 20 program that only takes your highest LSAT (if the difference is greater than four points). That looks mighty good to me.

I don't now very much else about the school though (except what's in the US News Report), does anyone have any information? Has anyone visited? Any thoughts on the chances for postings with big firms from UMN? Shot at the big money jobs? Any idea as to the program's strengths and weaknesses?

In short, any thoughts at all on the University of Minnesota?

You might be able to do better than Duke/Michigan/G'town if you cast a wider net in the T14, but it basically looks good.

Any idea when they will start sending out fee waivers for the 05/06 cycle?
