Law School Applications / Pick one of two...
« on: December 14, 2008, 12:00:55 AM »
...of the schools the previous posters lists.  Then list two more.  No logic required.  No reasoning as to why you list the two schools you do.  Okay, go.

NYU or Chicago?

Law School Applications / So what are you planning on doing?
« on: December 13, 2008, 03:21:45 PM »
There is a fun topic over on TLS with people talking about the kind of responses they like to give when they are asked the same questions over and over again.  How about we have a little fun with these questions and get to know each other a little better?  The following three questions are asked all of the time- how do you answer them?  I'll start...

1. So where are you going to law school?
I'm not really sure yet, but Vandy is definitely in the driver's seat.

2. What kind of law do you want to practice?
I want to get into corporate litigation... I might specialize in mergers and acquisitions.

3. Where do you want to practice?
Probably in the South, somewhere close to where I go to law school.  Nashville looks awfully nice...

Law School Applications / WUSTL Scholars in Law
« on: December 12, 2008, 06:34:20 PM »
Anyone know about this scholarship, such as when it is offered usually, and how much it covers?  WUSTL website has very little information about (what I am thinking) is a pretty big scholarship.

Law School Applications / How does it work (scholarship negotiations)?
« on: December 08, 2008, 12:37:34 PM »
I have heard various people talk about how you can negotiate scholarships and get schools to offer you more, but no one has really discussed the process of doing it.  Exactly how does it work?

For example, I'll use the schools in my signature to create an example.  Suppose when all of the scholarships come out, I get a full ride from UK, $60,000 from Vandy, and $15,000 from Michigan (this is purely hypothetical).  Would I call Vandy/ Michigan and say, hey, look at these offers- how can you match them?  Or is there a more refined process for getting better offers?

Anyone with any experience or knowledge in this area- clue the rest of us in, please.

Where should I go next fall? / Need advice (especially from Vandy students)
« on: November 25, 2008, 10:57:22 AM »
My stats are in my sig.  My wife and I are at somewhat of a crossroads, and I would really love to hear some input.  I live in Bowling Green, and I won't be graduating until May.  My schedule next semester requires me to only be on campus in BG two days a week, and my wife will be working in Nashville next semester.  I was accepted into Vanderbilt a few days ago, and we are considering going ahead and moving down to Nashville (about an hour away) and me just commuting two days a week to Bowling Green.

However, I have applied to other schools as well, and anticipate scholarships from other schools.  If Vanderbilt offers me a significant enough sum of money ($70,000+), I will definitely attend.  In the past (according to LSN and various posters), my numbers should earn me this amount, but it isn't set in stone.  Is it worth the risk to go ahead and move- in other words, should I expect this much, or would I be better off holding off?

Thanks in advance for all responses- you guys have been a great help.

Law School Applications / Virginia: non-ED roll call
« on: November 13, 2008, 10:47:36 AM »
LSN shows that some people who are not in-state, not URMs, and not EDs have gotten into Virginia.  Anyone on this board fall into those circumstances?

Where should I go next fall? / Scholarships with Acceptance Notice
« on: November 12, 2008, 10:39:28 AM »
I'm hoping some of you can help me. I am wanting to find out which schools notify you of scholarships you are eligible for at the same time they notify you of acceptance.  I know that Duke does not, and I seem to remember someone saying Vanderbilt doesn't either.  Is there a topic discussing this that I have missed, or does anyone have any input as to which schools notify you of scholarships up front?

Law School Applications / Plagarism bites...

Ignore this thread- the personal statement I linked to appears to be plagarized (at least in structure and content).
