still duke and penn.  I called penn today and they told me my file was still with the committee... really what have they been doing with it all this time...  ???

agreed...we have similar numbers so maybe it's really borderline?

besides Penn, waiting on H n Y, and NYU.

Congrats!!!! how'd you hear?

but what about the best name changing aspect of becoming a lawyer--the chance to knock out your first name and replace it with a pretentious sounding initial...

like J. Boring Doe instead of John B. Doe.

I think this is underutilized in the attempts to sound old and stuffy right outta LS. Pretty much foolproof in my opinion.

jujunyc, i think i met you. actually, i'm positive.  i was the guy sitting next to you at the breakfast on friday. 

lol that's so crazy. environmental c. guy...if I'm right. :)

what'd you think of the rest of the day?

I was at the Georgetown Open House as well.  While nothing really "turned me off" (so to speak), I wasn't too impressed with the faculty or current students.  The facilities were obviously amazing and I really liked the feel of a mini-campus in the heart of DC, but I guess I just didn't get a good vibe from any of the current students I spoke with.  I also didn't really get to interact much with any of the faculty (I was toward the end of the line for the dinner on Thursday, so I was stuck sitting in the lounge area with other admitted students--no current students or faculty--which was disappointing).  All in all, I left with no better feel for the school than I had when I arrived.  I'm curious, jujunyc, what about GULC has made you re-think visiting Michigan?

I think it's the access to extracurricular/clinical/externship opportunities that are unique to DC that really got my attention. I think the academics and reputation are pretty comparable, with an edge to Michigan. But I realized more than ever that I would be able to see friends and family a lot more in DC than anywhere else I've gotten in, and I love the city itself. But it wasn't just the visit, I'm also really not into summer start which is what I have at Michigan. I'm going to a reception here tomorrow so that may change my mind about visiting. I want to ask about IP at Michigan and get a feel for the people.

My bad.  Probably a question that shouldn't weigh into one's choice too much, but did they take you guys out to the bars?  Where area of DC do the GTown students go to on the weekends?

I think people went out Thursday night, I could only take a day from work, so I missed that.

But a lot of people go out in Adams Morgan, and Dupont Circle, probably some to Georgetown,  maybe some clubs farther downtown too...I'm from not that far away so I know the area relatively well.

Another thing, downtown DC is definitely an "improving" or developing neighborhood. I was surprised that right next to the law campus was a large shelter/nonviolence center. At the same time, there's a ton of construction on new luxury condos on H st. and on Mass Ave (basically around the corner), so in five years, it's safe to say the neighborhood will be a completely different landscape (if you know the MCI-now-Verizon Center/Chinatown/ Gallery Place neighborhood a few blocks away, I think basically the same thing that happened there has spread east near the campus).

i went and had a great time.  beforehand, i was vacillating between gw full-time and gtown part-time.  i'm now definitely leaning toward gtown.  i thought everything about it was great (facilities, current students, newly admitted students, professors, etc.).  oh, and the moot of hamden v. rumsfeld was awesome!  anybody have any opinions?

for the 2nd poster, we're referring to the open house this past Thursday and Friday (March 30-31).

I was very impressed with the faculty (at the Moot and the lunch on Friday) and the students that I talked to. They were all doing amazing things this summer, and I mostly talked to 1Ls--travelling, working at firms, etc.

The facilities are gorgeous--I was expecting some parts to be older, more like the traditional campus, but the whole complex is less than 30 years old. That's good in a lot of ways, just different from what I expected. Georgetown's access in DC is pretty unrivaled from what I can tell (to Supreme Court moots, government jobs etc.)

All in all I was very impressed, there's a very good chance I'll end up there, barring any intervention by the schools that haven't told me anything yet. And I'm not sure I want to go visit Michigan at this point...
