I know from last year, cornell stated it was only taking about 10-12 people off their waitlist and that happened the week before classes started (some pulls occured the day of classes)...hth

He's my hero.

umm wow is this guy for real? he comes off as really jaded and bitter about his life. this dude needs a blowjob- maybe then he'll loosen the fu.ck up and get a clue that life is more than his job. what a sorry existence.

still a good read though- i've added it to my favorites page.

He's actually a 3L at Harvard, not a real partner at a firm.

Good to know. i couldn't figure if this guy was for real or not- though if this is how the guy thinks, i still do feel sorry for him.

That thing at the top of the page that says it's fictional should have tipped you off.
I read that. I thought it was a play on the blog being anonymous. which is why i wasn't sure and so i asked "is this guy for real?"

I'm going to have to agree with Patrick on this one- NYLS is certainly not worth the hefty pricetag to go there. The NYC market is one of the toughest in this country to get into (if it's not #1). There are just way too many other better schools in the region (as well as the national schools- i'm sure you have a crapload of yale and harvard students that would love to work in NYC) that will dominate you and leave you sifting through the public sector scraps. Take peoples advice and go with Hofstra. Generally when you go with a T3/T4 school, you want the school to be in a region where they own the marketplace. I've read that Hofstra holds its own in LI. Long Island is NOT THAT BAD. I'm from Westchester so I know. If you're really inclined to work in NYC, you can just get a job in LI, work for a couple of years and lateral over to the firms' NYC office (or you can simply just apply to other NYC firms- you will be WAY more marketable with a few years experience under your belt). I plan on doing the same thing as I am headed to a school that does pretty good for itself in its region with not a lot of competition- after a few years of experience in that market, I would love to lateral over to NYC. I notice that your appeal with NYLS, on a large part, is the fact that it's in NYC. So you'll get to enjoy the life there and have better connections and whatnot. But seriously, as a law student you'll be too broke and too busy to enjoy anything in NYC (especially with the crazy COL along with NYLS' pricetag and the B- curve you'll have to bust your a$$ to overcome). I feel if you want to really enjoy NYC, wait until you've established yourself as a lawyer when you can afford to throw some of your money around (which won't happen when you're paying back $210K in loans after attending NYLS)...

Does being a law student give guys extra points with the ladies?

My opinion is no. Seeing some of the guys on these boards and especially xoxo, you law guys come off looking like total pr!cks. It's not at all attractive.

I agree with rev on this one- supergirl, you didn't owe that guy any sort of explanation- period. guys like that feed on the attention they get. i would just ignore him from this point on. best of luck in law school. :)

accepted off of the waitlist today at NESL, I don't know much about them, but now am trying to decide between Detroit Mercy or NESL.

Detroit Mercy has a much better rep in Metro Detroit/Michigan than NESL will ever have in Boston. It will also cost you less because Metro Detroit is cheaper to live in. I would go to UDM if I were you.

I'm going to have to agree- while I would love to live in Boston, I don't think I would go to NESL just for the perks of living there. I got accepted at NESL a while back and the only reason why I even considered going there was the chance to live in Boston. Honestly, NESL is the bottom feeder school in Boston- it has to contend with many other better schools in the area (probably even outside of Boston as well). It'll be an uphill battle getting any decent jobs in Boston and even more so out of Boston (if you could even manage that, which is highly unlikely).  Of the two, I would go with UDM- from what I hear, they have a really good rep in their area and pretty much control the market there. Your job prospects there would be ten times better. While the thought of living in Detroit is rather bleh, I would prefer to live there and have a good job than go to NESL and dig through the scraps left by Harvard, BC, BU, Northeastern, and Suffolk.

Hopefully this will be a moot argument when you get into Duquesne. ;)
