Go where you want to practice.

with the added factor in addition to their relative rank that the schools in the back of tier 2 could always drop back to the undifferentiated tier 3 (*cough* Syracuse).

When I sent my seat deposit to Syracuse, I was all set to attend a tier 2 school. Shortly after the check cleared I was heading to a tier 3 school. Maybe by the time I graduate they will be back in the top 100.

Where do you want to practice law? I went to an admitted students day at Cleveland-Marshall and was impressed with the administration. They seem to really believe in the school and work hard to make sure that all of their students get jobs. Of course you may be "stuck" in the greater Cleveland area after graduation, but if you like northern Ohio then I think you'd be set. The building wasn't very impressive, and the campus is urban, but I left with a good impression of the school.

I know nothing about Willamette, but if you want to practice in Oregon that is probably your better option.

My ex-BF is a 3L now, and some of his friends are hard-core drinkers. They all celebrate not having class on Fridays by getting plastered on Thursday night. What bothers me more than the getting wasted itself is the drinking and driving that I know must also occur. If you're going to drink, drink responsibly.

I tried getting more money out of Syracuse, but no dice. I sent an e-mail to the financial aid people and got a call back from someone in admissions. She said that I received the largest merit scholarship that the law school awards (chancellor's, $27,800/year), so they could not increase my scholarship award. Oh well, it was worth a shot. Maybe if my initial scholarship award wasn't as much they would have increased it? I don't know.

Intelligence and sense of humor are key. I love when the way that someone thinks surprises me.

If anything, this email situation should make you feel better about yourself: your instinct to break up with him was spot-on.

I agree. He has shown himself to be way immature, and you don't need to deal with that. And if he is feeling regret over the breakup, he should find a more constructive way to deal with his emotions than sending you e-mails like that.

You're WAY better off single than with someone like that!

Look at it, near the bottom of this table. It's the most stringent in at least the last 10 years of released exams... -8 for a 170...3 of the scores above 170 were not even possible. Draconian...

Bummer. I took the test in December 2005, too.
