Where should I go next fall? / Re: Advice on which law school to attend.

ONU has a strong alumni network in Ohio and Pennsylvania(I think they may actually have more lawyers in PA).

There was a really neat episode of House Hunters involving a Loyola Law student. She originally put in an offer for an apartment in the French Quarter but her real estate agent convinced her it was an awful idea. She ended up choosing the house closest to campus. It was the biggest and the cheapest. She also looked at the warehouse district. I'm not from New Orleans but I found that episode really helpful. In addition, Lord Chaz (a relatively famous local ghost tour guide who was just on Girls Next Door) advised me that the French Quarter is not the place to live. It seems fun at first but it can get extremely loud and smells like piss and booze sometimes (don't get me wrong I love it anyway). He also mentioned that almost every apartment is haunted and has some kind of sketchy past(take that as you will). You might want to seek out that episode of House she decorates the entire house with Micky Mouse stuff which is good for a laugh.

I know nothing about Liberty but ONU apparently has a very nice campus. I know some successful alumni from the school and they are very loyal to the school which could come in handy. Best of luck in your decision. Where do you want to practice?

General Board / Re: Contrasting Temple, Drexel and Villanova

If he wants to practice in Philly people tend to say Temple. Other parts of the state believe Villanova is better(in terms of rep). I know several older lawyers who find Nova the clear winner(probably because it is private and has a strong old-boys network) where as Temple offers a more diverse experience.

Go to Penn...tell Temple you are not coming, their wait list is obnoxious. Thanks:) Haha but congrats:)

In at Wake Forest via status checker.

CCRAA? Not sure what that is? Thanks for the insight:)

So I got into Tulane and I love it but the catch is....they didn't offer me any money. Any ideas for begging for money? They sent me something about need based scholarships up to $5,000 but that obviously isn't much compared to the super high tuition. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Meta Discussion / Re: Why is LSD failing to TLS?

I think people are nicer on LSD. People on TLS get so bitchy and think T14 is the only way to go. I know plenty of VERY successful lawyers that went to not so "prestigious" law schools. I mean don't get me wrong it is great to go to an awesome school but no need to get all elitist. I think it is really what you make of it. I also know plenty of not so successful T14 graduates. I just appreciate honest advise about the process and real opinions. No need for callous or sarcastic remarks that are frequent on TLS.

Thanks! I mean I'm confused by is one thing to deny it but I thought they could at least acknowledge my request. Ah well what can you do.
