Yeah it was a waitlist acceptance.  But thanks. 

Hello All,

I am deciding between the two and although it seems that if I do alright at either school I can land a solid job that pays well.

Now what pulls me towards Northwestern is the ability to draw on its other schools for a dual-degree. This opportunity is not the same at BU. Also for someone eventually interested in Academia, Northwestern may also work out slightly better.

I would love to work in Chicago or Boston so geograhpy is not an issue. Thanks!

Thanks for the advice, well the deposit is in at BU and it seems like the logical choice.

BUT I have now been admitted to Northwestern, and have to decide between having nearly 150K in loans from NU or something around 60K from BU (20K scholly).

Is NU worth it?  I have about 2 weeks to make the decision.

Thanks again.

I am extremely interested in Chicago, but would be happy on the east coast.  This another part of the dilemma, as I would be happier in Boston than Nashville, but I know Vandy places well in Chicago.

We will see how it all pans out. 

Choosing the Right Law School / BC v BU$$ v VULS

Hello all,

Looking for some input on a few choices.  I have been accepted to BC, BU and VULS.  BU is offering 15K/yr, while VULS and BC are not offering anything.  Unless BC matches I will most likely be crossing them off the list.

Now between BU and VULS, I also think I have to take the money.  The one major obstacle, is that I am extremely interested in Vandy's econ joint-degree program.  Any thoughts?

Also wait-listed at Northwestern.  If NU were to happen, then what? NU or BU$$?

Choosing the Right Law School / Fordham Waitlist

Just recently wait-listed at Fordham.  Would love to hear any suggestions or thoughts on getting off the waitlist there.

Will send a LOCI.  Also thoughts on Fordham in general.  If I did get off their waitlist I would be deciding between Fordham and DePaul($$$).  Both Chicago and New York definitely have their appeal.  Would like to get involved with energy law.   

Thanks for the help!

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Wait-List: Chicago

Just tried to register for an LSAT in Chicago, and was placed on a wait list.  Anyone know when you generally find out if you have a spot and what the designated test center will be?

Will definitely apply to some t-14 to see what happens.  Also retaking in September, figure a few pts can have a pretty big impact in my situation.

Great, thanks a lot for the help.

The only other question, is how do you like living in DC?  I lived on 12th and M for a few months, and it was definitely a city which grew on me, and after visiting, I think I would probably prefer having the law school campus downtown rather than in Georgetown.  What do you think after a year there?

165/3.76...Posted this in another thread but figured it deserved its own post.

Was thinking about sending an app to G-town PT...what do you think are the chances there? and also what are the positives and negatives of doing a PT program...curious to find out?

Do employers treat G-Town PT any differently, and is it easy to transfer into the full-time program?
