Thanks! Yeah I am planning on attending the open house on April 8. I guess its kind of an accident that I may be attending Pierce. I decided to apply last minute without really knowing anything about it and then when I got accepted I did some research and became really interested in the school, especially because of the quality of the IP program. The school also seems smaller and more community oriented, and I think that would be really helpful especially when moving to a new place where I dont really know anyone. Also, the setting is fairly rural, and originally I wanted to be in Boston, but I grew up in a fairly rural Massachusetts town, and did my undergrad in Amherst which is a nice town but it also has nearby mountains etc, and I think it would be really cool to go to law school in sort of a similar place where I could go hiking to relieve stress, yet still have the benefit of being in a small city where there are stores, restaurants etc, and also I could still keep my car, where as I wouldnt really be able to have it in Boston. So I guess thats what attracted me so far to the school, I am definitely looking forward to visiting next week. Oh, and I am a 21 yr old female (I'll be 22 when school starts) so the roomie thing is always a possibility. I am coming directly out of undergrad, is anyone else?
