Transferring / Re: Vandy or Texas
« on: July 27, 2008, 09:47:23 AM »

I don't blame you if everything being equal, but for a $60K difference? 

10K, maybe.  Penn, maybe.  Harvard, definately.  Vandy, no. 

Well, I guess it's a good thing I'm not you, then. :)

The state of Florida does not practice AA, so it doesn't matter. Your numbers are fine for any of the law schools in FL. People with lower numbers than yours get into UF and FSU. Good luck!

I made a decision today, and I think it's the right one for me. I will be attending... (drum roll, please)...

I am still in a quandry... Texas is offering me in-state tuition. I LOVE Vandy and get a better vibe from them, but is it idiotic to spend an additional $60K on warm fuzzies?

Transferring / Resume for Transfers?
« on: July 23, 2008, 08:27:46 AM »
How are you transfers listing the change in the Educaton section on your resume?

I was thinking maybe something like this?

ABC LAW SCHOOL, City, State         
J.D. Anticipated, DATE
   Transferred after first year at XYZ SCHOOL OF LAW

XYZ SCHOOL OF LAW, City, State               
Attended DATE - DATE
   XYZ Journal of Underwater Basket Weaving Litigation Member
   Dean's List, Top X%.....

DFG College, City, State         
B.S. 2006 
   etc. etc. etc.

Thoughts? Any advice on this?

Any recommendations on housing this late in the game? I'm transferring (still choosing between schools, but I am leaning toward Vanderbilt). I need something pet-friendly, reasonably close to school and reasonably priced. Good luck, right?

Two units in my building are available (if you're thinking of buying). The condos are small but fairly nice. The neighborhood's cool, too (Belmont-Hillsboro).

out of my price range to buy, unfortunately! If you hear of anyone looking for a roomate, PM me. I found a nice 2 bedroom not too far from school and I'm going to look at it next week.

You can always opt out of having your photo in the facebook. You have to sign a form giving the law school permission to use your photo in the facebook, etc. Students who didn't sign the form had their names in the facebook, but no photo.

Transferring / Vandy or Texas
« on: July 19, 2008, 08:02:30 AM »
I'm pretty torn over this decision. Any thoughts? I've visited both schools.

I got a really good feel from Vandy, but I know Austin a little better and I have friends at UT. On the other hand, Vandy = more personal attention; whereas Texas = large state school. In looking at NALP, they get about the same number of firms recruiting there.

I'm not necessarily interested in practicing in TX (the big problem is that I don't know WHERE I want to practice; probably SE/NE). I was really impressed with Vandy's admin and career services, but I have a mtg with UT's career svcs on Monday.

Anyway, obviously at the end of the day you can't go wrong with either school, but I still want to make sure I pick the right environment for me. I've always gone to large public schools, so Vandy is very appealing as a welcome change. However, UT was my top choice when I applied to law schools. I don't have any family in TX, but I lived there for 2 years.
