Choosing the Right Law School / Best Schools for Conservatives
« on: December 02, 2005, 11:23:40 AM »
Conservative minority, very outspoken politically, but gracious enough to respect the educated opinions of others.  What schools of the following are most accomodating?

University of Virginia
University of Michigan
Georgetown University
University of Chicago
Northwestern University
University of Pennsylvania
Duke University

Thanks, y'all.  I know Chicago has a "rep" for being conservative, but I don't know how accurate that is.  How is Michigan?  Georgetown?  I heard Duke and Northwestern were notoriously liberal-leaning.  Is this the case?

Thanks.  But hey -- If I'm wrong and I get tons of money from some other people, more power to me!  Good luck with everything to you too!

I think the biggest problem is that he seems to think Michigan, UVA, and NW are more likely to give out money than Emory, Duke, GW and Vandy.

I think this because of my Truman.  Michigan has "recruited" me in subtle ways.  So has the University of Virginia -- Dean Trujillo travelled to nowhere-land to visit me and the other 2005 Trumans last spring.  He saw me debate another Truman, and gave me a fee waiver on the spot.  Since then I've kept in contact with him and he's very serious about making sure all my materials are in and are in on time.  So I have my fingers crossed for UVA, since it's my first choice.

Northwestern gives a FULL-TUITION scholarship to any Truman Scholar who attends.  Nay-say all you want, the interview went wonderfully.

Penn -- Rejection
Michigan -- Acceptance, Half-Tuition

why do you go from rejection at penn to acceptance w/ half-tuition at michigan?  do you estimate that their admissions criteria are really so vastly divergent? 

Good question -- I say that because I have no idea how the admissions work at Penn.  However, I have been recruited "kinda" for U-M.  Because of the Truman, minority status, and an acquaintance who is a key fundraiser at U-M and my undergraduate college, I am pretty confident about U-M.  But again, I know nothing about Penn's admissions criteria.
