Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Northeastern??
« on: January 03, 2005, 01:20:17 PM »
The admissions office was also closed from Christmas thru today I believe, so that'll slow them down.  I'm just hoping that when I get back to school, I'll have a letter from them in my mailbox...

Law School Admissions / Re: Okay, started freaking out today

Wow, what an ass.  Where I want to go to school has absolutly nothing to do with where my boyfriend goes, read my previous posts.  I want to be in Boston because I love the city and its where my family and friends are.  I was looking for constructive advice on schools to add to my list, not for you to be a jackass, so thanks, but please go be a jerk somewhere else

LOL everyone's happy until you put a mirror in front of them. Your original post was incredibly silly and immature. What do you mean you're freaking out? Its only 1/2/05. What do you want us to do about your freaking out any way? You do need to grow up.

I'm pretty sure everyone on this board has had at least one moment during this process when they freaked out about something.  I fail to see anything silly or immature about my original post.  While I have done a great deal of research and thinking about this whole thing, I am currently feeling unsure that I have explored all of my options, which is why I'm asking for advice.  Don't want to help, or do anything about my situation?  Then don't.  I have done my best to help out others on this board, and I'm looking for the same in return.  Being unsure of oneself for a day or two is very different from needing to grow up.  Thank you to those who have tried to help.  Oh, and redsox, you do look like Tina Fey in that picture, but rest assured that most of my guy friends find her very hot

No schools in Philly? I thought the lure of Boathouse Row could bring any potential 1L to consider schools around there.

Well I do love Boathouse Row, since I spend pretty much all of my spring weekends there, but four years in Philly has been enough for me I think.  It'll always have a special place in my heart, and I'll always be back the second weekend in May for my favorite weekend of the year!


(Said in very high pitched childish cheerleader voice.) "Oh I'm freaking out I'm freaking out. Oh my God I'm sooo freaking out." "Oh I want to be with my boyfriend cuz like we're sooo in love." "I got a special feeling when touring Northeastern, its meant to be!"

Grow up!

My decision has absolutly nothing to do with where my boyfriend goes, especially because when I start law school, he'll be graduated, but rather his great experience with their coop program.  Not only does he already have a job, he'll have two years more experience in his field when he graduates.  That's pretty marketable.  And for someone like me, who isn't certain about what type of law she wants to practice, having the opportunity to try different things is a pretty good deal.

Law School Admissions / Re: Score or Percentile??

I thought the score coorelated to the percentile?  Like a 150 is always 50th percentile?

1. I doubt BU or BC would even think about giving me a cent, even if I somehow got in
2. My boyfriend goes to NU undergrad, has had a job for after graduation since he was a sophomore, thanks to the coop program, which is absolutly amazing in my opinion
3. totally corny, but when I toured NU, I got that "feeling," when I was at BC and BU I just didn't.

think I have a good shot at NU?

I have (so I thought) all my applications in, but I haven't heard from anywhere yet.  I have a 165/3.3, finance major, and I've applied to BC, BU, Northeastern (top choice), Suffolk, and Quinnipiac.  I'm fairly certain I want to settle in Boston, but not 100% positive.  Any advice on other schools I should be considering?

This is just my humble opinion.  And keep in mind that its new years and I'm drunk.  If you would decide not to go to law school just because you didn't get into a prestegious enough school, do you really want to spend three years, tons of money, and then years of your life practicing a career you're not sure of?  I've known for a long time that I want to be a lawyer, and I've applied to schools ranging from BU>BC to New England School of Law.  While I'll be disapointed if I end up at NESL, I'll still be able to be a lawyer, which is what I really want in the end.

Talk to people at Goldman.  See how many Villanova grads are there.  Villanova is one of the top schools they recruit at.  I know four kids personally who have landed jobs with them already, and I'm sure there's others I'm not friends with.  Goldman is the one who offered me the job, so I know its not BS

My two cents:  I'm a senior finance major at Villanova.  Not one of the "top" schools.  We compete with some great business schools for jobs, especially Wharton.  This being said, the majority of my finance major friends already have jobs for next year, and have had them for a while.  Companies like Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, etc., the top wall street brokerage firms.  Most of them were hired for a starting salary of between 60-70.  Before I decided I was going to law school next year, one of those jobs was offered to me, and my overall is a 3.3, my tech (business classes, not just finance classes) is a 3.7.  So the degree definatly isn't worth nothing
