Buffalo is not where I want to be for the long-term, or even the short-term really, but wouldn't be entirely averse to spending 3, maybe 4 for a joint degree program, years there.  The thing I worry about is an inability to get out of western ny.  I plan on working, living in NYC after law school and am a little worried about the job prospects coming out of buffalo.  I'm sure that if you graduate in the top 10-15% or so then you will have a lot of doors open but I am not going to take for grantes that I will do that.  I just don't want to end up in a situation after law school where my only job offers are in buffalo and rochester.

I checked you out on LSN, we have pretty similar numbers although you have a little leg up on me on the lsat, but anyway we are applying to a lot of the same schools.  I don't really want to go to Buffalo... not at all really, but as you said, the price tag.  It all depends where I get in I guess, gotta wait and see, but to go to a similarly ranked school (ie miami) and graduate with double the debt just doesn't sound worth it to me, even though those 3 years would be much more desirable.  What are your top choices?  Mine I am thinking right now are Brooklyn, Tulane, Georgia, and Loyola (and of course Berkeley), if i get into one of those i think i would go, otherwise it is looking more and more like Buffalo.

anyone know anything about anything about buffalo law?  i am most specifically interested in any info about job prospects but really i am interested in whatever info you got... good professors?  good nightlife?  good student body (i.e. not too cut-throat)?  really i'm interested in any information you got.  thanks.

I just wanted to join in the group self-pity party.  I didnt check my email yesterday evening so when I woke up  my girlfriend's this morning I checked it and saw the email from Boalt.  I noticed a second email but my eyes went straight towards Boalt.  I read the first line and thought I was crazy, I have been hoping all along that some glitch would get me admitted and it looked like it had happened.  Let me add here that I do not belong being admitted.  I yelled to my girlfriend to come and read it, blah blah blah, very happy, blah blah blah, "you're not a minority"...  I guess I knew it was too good to be true though, I called the number at the bottom of the email almost immediately and the explanation was on the answering machine... oh well... then i saw the second email.  What are you gonna do I guess, right?  I am sure this glitch means nothing at all and that it is just that, a glitch.  I was a blissful minute or two though, wasn't it?

no one has really said anything about most of the schools i am looking at so i am just wondering... has anyone looked at Buffalo, Brooklyn, St. John's, Miami, St. Louis, Tulane, UGA, Tennessee, South Carolina?  I applied to a lot of schools.  Also, I keep hearing Baylor's building is nice, what about the area?  Waco, TX?  I applied because it was free, but is it a place you want to spend 3 years?  Get at me boys and girls.
