Where should I go next fall? / Re: Ages?
« on: December 02, 2005, 02:40:56 PM »
The age thing used to scare me; I figured it adversely affect my admission chances at some of the more elite schools.  Now, I'm pretty much indifferent.  It's the one aspect of my application I can't control.  No use in stressing.  How do you feel RE: age -- has it ever worried you?  Probably not given your numbers!!!

Just turned 21 a week or two back, will be 21 starting 1L, 22 at the end.  Young, but not in that handful of super-whiz kids who entered and left college early.

Where should I go next fall? / Best Schools for Conservatives
« on: December 02, 2005, 02:23:40 PM »
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.

Thanks

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.

Thanks
