Law School Applications / Re: Military

UVA provides a fee waiver for veterans, but other than fee waivers, it is hard to tell what benefits are due to military service. I don't feel like it helped me very much.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Scholarship vs. ranking

I agree with Ohioan, but I would also add that you should also consider which school you would attend without the scholarships as well. Nobody ever thinks it will happen to them, but there is a possibility of not having a scholarship after 1L. So, would you be happy paying $43k a year to go to Syracuse over Rutgers in-state?

You can apply to law school the same way you applied to college (i.e. the fall/spring semester of your senior year).

This is true, however, it is highly recommended that you apply in the fall semester. This will give you a better chance of receiving higher scholarships.


ithaca has a poo ton of really cheap bars.  one place does two for one drinks, and an average drink is $3.50.  i went to school there and i visited some people at the law school...let me assure you that they drink more than a fish.  cornell is the definition of a work hard play harder place.

I also go to school at Cornell and grew up in Ithaca. You can find places that sell two for one drinks almost anywhere (BTW, Moonshadow's used to do 3 for 1, which I'll admit was awesome). I also notice that you say you visited some people "at" the law school. I mention this because in 20+ years living in Ithaca, I have never run into a Cornell Law student outside of the law school.

Party Law School Rankings Released

I refuse to believe that Cornell is "more fun" than USC. There was an article in the Cornell Daily Sun last year that said Cornell Law students spend more time studying than Law students at any other school ( Also, Ithaca v. LA is not even close.

I've done research (had moving quotes, calculated costs of selling then buying new poo, etc) and it seems like the cheapest solution would be to split a Uhaul with someone else heading south.

would either of you be interested in that?  We can do a lot more correspondence to prove that I'm not a psycho serial killer.

I sent you a PM.


Anyone interested in possibly splitting a Uhaul?

I'm moving from Upstate. Not really sure how the move is going to happen yet.

Still deciding on this one.  Could see myself settling in NY but don't love the idea of not having more flexibility.  Is the Tulane experience/reputation worth the extra money?

Only time will tell if it was the right decision, but I decided that the Tulane experience/reputation will be worth the extra money. I am from NY, and passed up a couple full-ride offers for Tulane. Not sure if you will come to the same conclusion, but good luck.

I'm 27, mom to two kiddos, 7 and 4. I'm engaged and my fiance makes good money so I don't work. I'll be starting law school in the fall. I've read so much about huge workloads, spending all night at the library, having no time to do any of the things you enjoy. I'm worried about two things - not having enough quality time with my kids, and not having enough time to study...

OP, sorry about hijacking your thread. I think it all depends on how you study. In my current program, there is a huge workload, many people spend all night at the library, and have no time for the things they enjoy. I like to find a nice balance between studying and family time. I think your kids are old enough that they will understand that you are busy and you can more easily explain to them when you will be free (hard for me to do with a daughter who is not yet 2).

Who are you, the woman's representative, her publicist, you speak on her behalf? My question to the OP probley evoked some sort of contrition on your part. Lastly, I'm an adult, I don't conduct myself as a "normally socialized child" would. If I have a question, like an adult I query. If the OP didn't want to reply, she could have done so, but she decided otherwise. LSD doesn't need an obtrusive police officer patrolling.

I do not claim to speak on the OP's behalf. It appears that she is completely capable of handling this on her own, and she has. I found your question insulting (regardless of who it was directed at) and chose to express my displeasure. Normally socialized children turn into normally socialized adults. Adults do not ask innappropriate questions. Here is a piece of advice: When you are being interviewed for your first job and the interviewer asks you if you have any questions, do not say, "I notice the pictures of your children around your office. Are they all from the same man?"
