Choosing the Right Law School / Re: BC/BU
« on: October 27, 2004, 06:42:38 AM »
Generally, people in Boston view BU and BC pretty similarly, but think of BU as the more national school, and BC as the more local.  Most of this is probably self-selection, because BC grads stay in Boston and hire more BC grads.  You definatly won't have a problem with either school in Boston, and probably not on the east coast, depeding on how you do, of course.  I love both campuses, and am a little partial to BU myself (maybe because BC rejected me as an undergrad...).  The one problem I have with BC is that you're isolated from the main campus, and there are undergrads around, but their all freshman.  BC houses most of their freshmen on the Newton (law school) campus.  we all know what freshmen in college are like...  Housing in Boston in general is expensive and a landlord's market for the most part, but its a tad (but not much) easier to find off-campus housing near BC

I guess I'm weird.  I'm a girl and I lied about my height

Temple isn't in a great area (thats probably an understatement).  Philly is great though, I go to school here, I'm not planning on staying here, and I'm having a really great time.  Plus, from what I hear, temple has a pretty good reputation in the northeast (but then again, so do a ton of other schools).  Temple is definatly #2 in Philly behind Penn, and most of them leave Philly anyway.  Northeastern is my top choice, so let me know any specific questions you have.  Their co-op program is amazing and really well-respected in Boston.

Just from what I've seen:  I'm a senior this year.  Many of my finance major friends have had their jobs secured since the summer.  Not one of my marketing major friends has a job yet.  I don't know a finance major who graduated from my school last year who doesn't have a job in finance or something related (I'm sure there are some out there, I just don't know them).  I know four marketing majors who are doing something they don't want to do, because they can't find anything else.

Great stuff guys. Just out of curiosity, is getting a Marketing degree instead of Finance going to have the same career opportunities, respectability for me after school or will it generally limit my options?

The difference for me would just be one semester worth of courses. If I did Marketing, I would only have to take:

1) Marketing Research
2) Consumer Behavior
3) International Marketing Management
4) Retail Management

These, I have heard, don't involve any math what-so-ever, which is definitely not a strong point for me at any level. I am a bit concerned about my job prospects if I do Marketing instead of Finace though. However, I am pretty sure both will give me much higher prospects than a BA in Psychology, right?

I'm taking International now, and all the math is pretty much algebra, basic stuff.  I'm also taking Investments, and its the same, just algebra.  Corporate doesn't seem like it'd require anything more advanced than alegbra either, but it could depend on your prof.  When I took institutions and markets, there was barely any math, it was all theory, rules, history.  The only math I think we used was figuring out new divisors for the indices after stock splits, etc.  And if you don't have it, definatly get the BAII+.  I have it, its a godsend.  A prof I took has a great description of how to use it for all different problems on his website, I'll look for the link for you if yo'ure interested.

Law School Admissions / Re: LSD lynch mob--time to bury the hate?

Thanks Ruskie!  midterms just got over, so I am now a much happier girl.  Not that I should be complaining to someone in law school or anything...
I haven't been posting much or even visiting much lately, what with crew and school being real busy right now (I HATE MIDTERMS!), but I stopped by this morning, and must say that I was saddened that someone like Ruskie, who has contributed so much to these boards and encouraged many, including myself, was being attacked.  If I wanted to read stuff like that I'd go to xoxohth.  Please, keep the good spirit of LSD alive

Aww, thanks for the support. Good luck with midterms and don't stress too much! :-*

You should go just to be in Boston, because I can't go (stupid crew!), and I'm really sad about it.

I would definatly tell.  If that person gets a better score than me through cheating, that person has an advantage over me at every school we both apply to.  I worked hard for my score, they should have to work hard too
