Law School Admissions / Re: Grad school first???

Although it certainly depends on the program, in many grad programs it is easier to get a higher gpa than it in in undergrad, so they may not it as seriously.

To give you some idea, I had a 3.39 and a 161 and received 8500/year in scholarship.

Many cafes and public spaces in Israel are wireless...You don't need to enter any information, you just have your computer find the signal and you are set. Some of them ask you to click on a link to accept their terms/conditions, but this is not universal.

I remember thinking this when I was in Finland. I spent some time with the jewish community there, and at some point one of the members mentioned that another of the members wife was Finnish. I thought, aren't the all finnish? It turns out being a citizen of Finland, even being a leader of the conservative faction in the parliament as one of them was, or having lived there for decades upon decades, does not make you a's the same through much of Europe.

There is a place near me that will do for if I remember around one dollar per pound but there is a minumum.


From what I've seen, however, there is a subtle difference in vibe between the student bodies.  Some people could describe CLS as more "competitive," although I think different terms capture it more accurately.

I think the most accurate term would be "better."

If by "better" you mean "snobbier," then yes.  :P

aren't they the same??  ;) ;D

Spoken like a true Harvard man.

I'll take that as a compliment!

It wasn't.

clearly not, but harvard men have to take what they can get. 

i've been checking out MsH the past few days.  i'm very pleased with the shops and restaurants in the area, and my apartment seems to be pretty decent.  i'm just hoping the availability of street parking won't plummet in the fall the way i suspect it will.

It's not that bad - I live on Claremont and when I had a car I could usually find a space on my block, even during the academic year.

I can't speak to the schools, but I live in Morningside Heights. I love the neighborhood. I live on a side street, right across from a very pleasant park. On the whole the neighborhood is quiet (but not overly so), has a decent selection of restaurants and shops, and is a short walk to the UWS proper or a quick subway ride downtown on the 1. I rent a pre-war for 1350.

1350 for a 1BR in Manhattan. I've been in the same place for three years.

I pay $1350 for a one bedroom in Morningside Heights. No dishwasher or W/D in the unit, but there is a laundry room in the basement of my building.
