Well, now that I've got the harvard option, I would have to closely compare them.  I am concerned that Stanford doesn't really have as much support for Public Interest as either NYU or Harvard.  But i definitely want to practice in either SF or Seattle, and their west coast placement is great, and my boyfriend is based in Mountain View (about 10 minutes from Palo Alto) and would have difficulty relocating to Boston (although not as much trouble moving to nyc), so, we'll see.  Having to chose between Harvard and Stanford is not a problem I currently have, nor one I have ever imagined having, so, we'll see.

Google? I'm in the bay area, too.  Funny, Bay, I think of you as a guy.  A 24 year-old gay fashion superstar, to be exact.

LAS - as for public interest, I just don't know.  I mean, NYU has loads of funding available, it seems.  And location-wise, NY is ideal for that sort of thing.  But I haven't visited H yet and honestly know very little of Boston/Cambridge.  And I need to do waaaay more research about both schools (and see my financial aid offers).  I LIKE these options.

Kimmus, I know exactly what you mean. I've had about a month and a half to get excited about NYU and check out apartment listings on craigslist.  Tuesday night I went to a mind-blowingly perfect local reception for NYU, where the Dean of the law school (not of admissions) answered admit questions for an hour, then alumns wined and dined us.  All of the people I met I really liked, and they had jsut the types of careers I want.  So I was totally smitten with NYU and ready to send in my deposit...

                                             ... and then I got in to Harvard the next day. It's kinda hard to imagine going there, my dream school was always Stanford and never Harvard.  To be honest, I'm afraid people are going to really intense and I'm going to get my ass handed to me on a plate.  :-\

Bay- maybe you'll get into Stanford... and then - will that be that?

I am.  I need to visit both, but from what I can tell, I would be a lot happier at NYU, and quality of life is important to me.  Any thoughts?

who is that a picture of in your avatar?

Daniel from Project Runway (the fashion reality show).  LAS, you think Harvard's Public Interest funding is better than NYU's?  Why?  They seemed pretty similar to me.

The thought flickers in my head periodically.  I need to visit HLS first.  I think if NYU chooses to offer me money (which msot likely will not happen), it will be a VERY difficult decision.  Up until 2 days ago, I thought I had a pretty clear idea of what the next three years would look like in the village.  And it felt comfortable.  I'm sure you know what I mean.

Cheapest way to get between Boston and NYC is the greyhound, which is usually around $40 roundtrip. As far as I know, Harvard will help with travel provided that you've submitted financial aid and qualify for some sort of help.

do you guys think they'll reimburse retroactively?  i just got in and haven't had a chance to access their forms yet.  i guess i could just be patient and wait for the info in the binder.   just wondering if anyone knows already.

Oh, and apparently there are only 6 lesbians at HLS.  I was a little sad about that.  "New York of Law Schools" my ass.  >:(

Really? I find that SO hard to believe, for some reason.  Where'd you get that #?  Just curious.
