Choosing the Right Law School / Re: WUSTL ($$) vs UT($)

This seems like a no-brainer to me. Aside from the placement, reputation, and cost differences (all of which favor UT, as discussed), consider the location. Austin or St. Louis...hmm.

Stop being silly.

Arthur, Inspector, EE, you sound like Chicago men. Pull the trigger. 


Maybe I'll wait a while before I totally deconstruct this.

Carry on.

I have to out myself on that post to your LSN page, Inspector. It was a guess that would look uncanny if it hit, and it hit. I did the same thing to someone with a Northwestern offer a few months back...hit it right on.

I chose a Chicago offer...and I have decent knowledge of what amounts they throw out...

I saw your other thread, too...

Of course, if you get the email at this stage you're probably in...

congrats in advance. numbers?

Yeah, it seems as though most of the WL---acceptances come in May or early June. Some people should be getting phone call emails soon, I imagine.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Northwestern, UT, Vandy - $$$ or prestige?

I hear you can get them at NW without too much difficulty, but not so at UT.

Don't know where you heard that, but plenty of UT 1Ls will be enjoying high paying big-law summers this year.

Sorry to see you go Sladkaya, but glad things seem to be working out!

I heard it from MindTheGap, so it must be UChicago trolling, you know. It's all anecdotal.

What % would you say = plenty? What grade percentile do you need at UT to be competitive for those internships? I think MTG has a top 10% UT friend that couldn't get a summer 1L big law intership.

Yay for Chicago.

I think NW is the right call. The difference in cost is negligible from a LT perspective...but remember to think about a 1L summer internship at a law firm that could help pay for the rest of school. I hear you can get them at NW without too much difficulty, but not so at UT. That's an extra $20K or more, depending on what you'd have to do instead.

When would you move? I am moving at the end of July.

So a kid learns about accountability and guilt by association. It's real. Kids learning about the world and growing up...such is life. I'm all for it.

I don't feel bad for him. Sure, he'll get a job at another firm somewhere else. I guess he just isn't ready to be the "most prestigious..."

Funny that these pups had to learn this way.

One fact you may not be adequately accounting for: schools don't waitlist people unless they are comfortable that they will fill their class with a normal yield from their admitted applicants. Admitting from the WL is a last resort to fill unanticipated gaps. I think all this analysis illustrates is how incomplete the LSN population is compared to the actual population. Chicago, for example, admitted over 700 people last year.

We all know that getting admitted off the WL at any school is really rare.
