Law School Admissions / Re: optional do or not to do?

I think it's probably a good idea - but I didn't do any.

As far as dorms go the Lawyers Club is pretty nice.  But a twin bed is a twin bed....

I'm not knocking the firms in Wilmington, I'm actually knocking Wilmington.

I've definately heard of the fluke rejection.  Example:  I got into NYU and Michigan but got waitlisted at William and Mary.  I thought my numbers made me a sure thing there.

Anyplace but Widener.  Actually, as far from Wilmington as possible.

Yeah - I'm living in the dorms and let me tell you - 6 hours on a hard twin bed mattress is more than enough - and I don't even want to think about what other people have done on that mattress.  It freaks me out more than a little.

Don't worry - it's definately not 10 hours every night.  Tomight should only be 4 or 5.  But give up on that idea of 8 hours of sleep.  :)
You have to fit the fun in somewhere.

Thanks - after this week I'll need it.  I'd heard all the stories about studying for 10 hours each night, but I thought it was an exageration.  Nope - it's definately true, at least at first.

I'm a 1L at Michigan - in the middle of my first week of classes.  The placement rate here is similar to the rest of the top 14 - around 97%.  The majority of Umich grads take the bar in New York, but Michigan also places a large percentage of grads in Chicago, D.C. and the Bay area.  True, for summer jobs you probably will not stay in the Ann Arbor/Detroit area, but over 700 employers participate in on campus interviewing, so you have some amazing options.
As far as ripping out pages in the library - I haven't seen or heard anything like that.  The 2Ls and 3Ls that I've talked to all say it's a friendly, not overly competitive atmosphere.

What are your numbers and in what region do you want to live/practice?
