Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Boston University 2L taking questions
« on: December 16, 2008, 12:36:56 PM »
OK, you touched on BC/BU differences.  Are these differences essentially negligible?  I'm kind of thinking career prospects.  You're doing a Boston big firm SA.  Is this something that many BU students do relatively easily as long as you have decent rank? 

Do many people do the study abroad options?  I spent some UG study time in China and would like to go back.

If you're very curious, you'd figure out a way to check.  It's easy to look through databases in the Registrar's office for example if you or your friend works there.  Commencement lists were already suggested.  All the options are there.  You can ask her what year she graduated. But, anyway, it doesn't matter much. 

As far as potential employers stalking your Facebook, isn't that what all those privacy settings are for?  To prevent people who aren't your 'friends' from viewing your profile.

I'm in the same boat at Tess R but maybe just not quite as non-traditional since I'm not married nor a parent.  I will be older than many incoming students, though.   Ending my 20's.  Is it a very straight-from-college feel to your 1L group? 

Also, yeah, same question with those Boston big firm prospects. 

All the other new law rankings discussions from prior years were around March and April.  I skimmed those a while ago but I sillily overlooked that fact today. 

Well, I wasn't able to delete this thread altogether so...redirect it? 

Several years after going through the undergrad admission process, do any of you care where your UG institution ranks in USNews every year?

I kind of care.  My undergrad school might inch up a spot every year or two.  I also work in college admission, so rankings are inescapable discussion topics and sources of anxiety in our field. 


the law rankings come out tomorrow?

You know what, Galt?  I'm not sure if the law rankings are coming out tomorrow along with the college ones now that I think of it. So, maybe this thread is pre-mature and I might have to just take it down.

Well, at midnight on the 22nd, but that's basically tomorrow night.  Will there be any shakeup in T14?  Will any TTT's become uhh...not TTT?  Does USNews even matter? 

Julie talk pretty one day. 

I can't say I "get" the lingo, Julie, if there's anything to get at all? 

Anyway, I think Clark would be a good choice.  On an irrelevant note, they're both very handsome men.  Apparently, though, word has it that he's not attending the Democratic National Convention, so that somehow means he's out of the picture. 

I'm not trying to get into Berkely or Harvard here, just a good school with a good reputation.

Any other suggestions? 

Good thing you're not trying to get into Berkeley, you can't even spell it!  ZING!

That was dickish.  And I only wrote it because all the good suggestions were already taken.

I'm sorry if this has already been discussed.

I want to have my personal statement edited by a professional company.

I've heard of Essay Edge &  Are there any others you would recommend?


Sister, Sister!  Adorable television. Too bad the show didn't run longer.

Do you have a pre-law adviser at your institution's career center who can proof read your essay and offer editing suggestions?
