Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: CHOOSING A T14
« on: March 02, 2006, 09:58:30 AM »

The decision is split between the three becuase they are all great schools and offer their own pros and cons.  Since you mentioned Chicago, NYU, Columbia, and Harvard in your post, you are either a city person or you plastered the T14 with applications.  If you are the former, Penn is almost certainly the place for you.  The staff/students are great, it is in a decent-sized (and quickly improving) city, and it places well in both NYC and DC (two other large-city legal markets).  Charlottesville and Ann Arbor are fairly-small college towns, and a city person could quickly get bored.  If you aren't a city person (or you just don't care about location) then a visit to all three would be the best.  The only meaningful differences are in class size, facilities, clerkships, and placement, and most of those are small differences or matters of preference.  You just won't find any consenus on this (or any other board) becuase there is simply not one of the three that is objectively "better" than the others.

thanks a lot for the advice...im definitely the latter...plastered the T14 with apps (save yale and stan....not that unrealistic...)...visits it is...mich next weekend....followed by penn...followed by uva...its 80 and sunny here...ill be passing the spring breakers on the way up

there was a post earlier that pretty much hit my situation on the mark...waitlist at columbia/chicago...still waiting on harv(yeah right) and nyu...in at all these and several "safeties"(hence the poll)...im having a really hard time making a decision...even if i were to get into nyu (everyone else with my numbers is an auto admit?!?...and for that matter i have higher nums than anyone waitlisted on lsn at chic or col...but, i knew my softs were weak from the get go), im not sure if id go over mich, penn, or uva...the consensus so far seems to be split between these three schools...i guess ill let the visits and fin aid decide...

If you had to choose between these five great schools, where would you go?
