Choosing the Right Law School / Re: News on Emory
« on: February 04, 2008, 03:03:05 PM »
There have been some posts on this issue.

The general consensus seems to be that career services at Emory is not very good, but it doesn't seem to be a huge issue for current students there.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Vanderbilt Wait List
« on: January 29, 2008, 03:53:50 PM »
just got waitlisted and was wondering if anyone knows more about the process?  how/do they rank applicants? do you have to wait until may to find out anything? do i actually have a chance of getting in off the list? etc...thanks!

when did you find out? how did they notify you?

Dr. Drew rules

Vandy, WUSTL, and UCLA are the most national of the group listed.

I would put GW right below those schools and Emory/Fordham/BC a rung below GW.

All of these schools are roughly similar in terms of prestige, so money and personal preference should play a big role in deciding between them.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Iowa Bad Rep?
« on: January 24, 2008, 06:16:14 AM »
In reading a lot of the posts on LSD about Iowa, I've found that the overwhelming majority of users have nothing positive to say about their program. I'm beginning to wonder whether its because it is a T-25 school that accepts a lower median LSAT score than other schools, or if it has to do more with academic quality issues during law school and post-graduation.

Why does U Iowa College of Law have such a bad rep? Before joining LSD, I heard so many great things about the school. More specifically, I've heard that the legal writing program is one of the top 10 in the country. I also remember Iowa being ranked in the top 10 for international law last year on USNEWS( I could be mistaken).

What do you guys think? What are your attitudes towards Iowa? Overrated? Underrated?

I think some people have a negative attitude to Iowa because its numbers are so low in comparision to where it is ranked.

As for the merits of the school, the faculty is widely regarded as excellent.

Sort of like Tulane law grads...
always whining, but yet...still acting like their the best.

PS: Emory is a lot better than what this guy will ever claim. Apply if you want to get top offers in the South and nationally as well. Check the Ciolli report on LSN, you'll get the real statistics. Not the notorious BS commentating that botbot is known for on LSD.


Please attend the ASD at Emory.  Grossest self-trolling since the SMU Sumners interviews.

--  And yes similar to Tulane grads, but with slightly bigger entitlement issues and no Texas market to fall back on.

Haha. Well said

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: GW or Fordham?

fordham if you want to practice in nyc or new england. probably gw if you want to practice anywhere else.

This is right. Fordam really edges GW if you want to practice in NY, but the Fordham Law degree really loses value each mile you travel away from NY.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: WUSTL Full Ride vs. Vanderbilt

This is not even close. WUSTL by far.

Even with no money at either school, Vandy is only slightly better than WUSTL. With a FREE RIDE at WUSTL, I would need a T10 school admit to change my mind.

Law School Admissions / Re: Working in a Law School's Office
« on: January 24, 2008, 06:07:04 AM »
Would my application get a significant boost if I took a job doing clerical stuff in Stanford's Law school office?  (i'm currently an undergrad there)

I bet it would. At the very least, you would have an inside perspective on how law admissions work and what they look for.

Law School Admissions / Re: aw snap, full ride to WUSTL!??!?!

WUSTL is known as a pretty elite university. It's not a universal name like Columbia or Yale, but most of its major programs are in the top twenty.

It seems that its students come from all over, especially from East Coast states. J.D., where are you from?
