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!

Choosing the Right Law School / BC v BU$$ v VULS
« on: April 01, 2010, 01:03:07 PM »
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
« on: December 14, 2009, 09:22:49 AM »
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?

Choosing the Right Law School / G-Town Part Time

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?

Choosing the Right Law School / 165 / 3.76

Well here is the same ol story, 165 and a 3.76...looking at top 20ish as my reaches and top 30ish as my targets.

Does this seem about right to everyone?  It seems like this type of score requires a shotgun approach to the top schools.  Any insights on chances/schollies?

Choosing the Right Law School / Law School or Army OCS
« on: May 06, 2009, 09:56:49 AM »
These are the two paths I have been wrestling with.  I will be taking the LSAT in June, and both have appealed to me for a long time.  Army Jag is a definite possibility in the future, and OCS would help me get my foot in the door there.

Basic plan of action is to see what happens with the LSAT and applications and re-evaluate the situation come January or so, but any help, thoughts, or info would be appreciated.

Law School Admissions / What ELSE can you do with a JD?
« on: December 23, 2008, 10:46:07 AM »
So with everyone's desire to earn a J.D., it seems that one can either go into private practice, public interest, government work, or with some luck academia.

I am curious to know if there is anyone who has went another direction with their JD and truly was able to put it to good use in another career choice?  Thoughts or examples?

** Also, what about joint degree.  How much does that JD help in the business side of things? or when coupled with a degree in something like environmental policy?

Law School Admissions / The "crazy" Personal Statement
« on: July 22, 2008, 07:59:07 AM »
What are the craziest, most out there, cheesiest personal statements you have written or heard that people have used?  And do you think if someone is applying to a "super-reach" they would benefit from a PS so distinct and outlandish that the adcomms can not help but notice the uniqueness of the applicant. 

** I have heard of a PS in the form of a poem, entirely in iambic pentameter.
