Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Obnoxious admissions dean?
« on: February 15, 2006, 05:54:54 PM »
That sucks that the Assistant Dean would do that, but I would really hold my judgement of the school until you have actually visited.  Like others have said often the administration and the school itself have two totally different personalities.

And on the positive side, no matter what you think of the school you still have plenty of alternates to fall back on.

Good luck and I hope your visit goes well.

I have family in Minnesota and especially in the Twin Cities area so it'd be easy for me to find a place to stay while going to law school (thus keeping it cheaper!), but that cold weather is something that I'll never get used to after living in San Diego for 19 yrs of my life (0-19).  Still, a top ranked school is hard to beat if you're concerned with job prospects afterwards too.  Also, looking at your schools, if I were accepted to both ND and Minn I'd probably go with ND in a heartbeat, but I'm biased towards the Irish anyway  ;)

Bobdealmighty, Thanks for you insight.  The cold does not bother me, I am from the Upper Michigan, though I have been displaced for the last few years.

Haven't heard much from you in a while.

Any new updates?  I noticed you hadn't updated any Ws on LSN, so I am guessing there is a lot of limbo going on. ;)

AH, Things have been kind of slow lately.  I have not heard anything from any other schools and I have only been getting "Law Porn" from those who accepted me.  I am kind of waiting to see what kind of financial aid the schools offer, economics will influence my decision - especially as it concerns Richmond.

I have however, visited both William & Mary and Richmond and wrote up my thoughts on my blog.

Hope all is well and best of luck to all.

It may just be me, but I seem to detect a consensus emerging…  :)


P.S., I met a veteran who is a current student at Minnesota. He was loving it there.

Thanks for the insight!  When I visited "the U" they brought up that there is a strong veteran base, especially with the newly formed Veteran's Transition Office.

I say if Richmond is off the table you should WD and tell them to give me your spot. ;)

IF I do withdraw from Richmond I will definately let them know that you deserve the spot.  I am still kind of waiting to see what they are going to offer for $$$.  They have the definate advantage of my not having to move.

thanks army.  however, that is a *definite* advantage ;)  PLUS, how amazing is that campus?!  seriously, good luck with finaid, a lot of money from Richmond would be AWESOME!  let me know how it works out. :)

Definite....definate....potat o...potatoe....
