just to pile on....i am still waiting, too.  not a sound since applying in january which is not as bad as some.  it has to backfire on the decision makers.

however, i live in cleveland.  should i just show up and demand answers for all of us?  kick in windows?  you tell me.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Miami...

thanks wkruse.  i checked out a few apartments i was looking at and the corresponding crime stats.  yep, there is crime in miami.  i just wanted to confirm that. 

to me, csu sounds like a better option than the other two. i also read that cleveland has the largest legal market between chicago and new york...for whatever that is worth.

i would look into the on-campus pricing. csu recently renovated an older administration building (fenn tower) into living space. it looks amazing from the photos. also, csu just either built or renovated its rec center.

i just read about the in-state tuition requirements. you either have to work and go to school, or as you said, have a spouse working in cleveland.

regarding transportation, i would not rely on the public transit system. i thought the trolley was just for tours of cleveland. maybe it does serve as transportation. it's just a fancy looking bus. of course there are buses, but again, i would not want to rely on waiting if i did not have to. however, if you lived on campus, you probably would not need a car. the law school is in the middle of the campus.

scientist, i live in cleveland, so i will give you as much information as i can.

i read somewhere that cleveland has the 5th largest legal market in the country. 87% (according to usn&wr) stay in the state. it's cleveland, so i don't know how much of that is a voluntary choice. i suppose one option is to get a job with one of the bigger firms and transfer to a ny office.

regarding the on-campus housing, i don't know much about that. csu is an urban campus, so there is not a lot around the school socially speaking. you could easily live in the surrounding areas either westside or eastside of cleveland (10-15 minute comute depending) for pretty cheap--around $500/mo. cleveland is a pretty cheap town.

regarding cost, there are posts floating around about gaining in-state residency. i don't know about ohio, but that could be a cost saver if you could pay in-state tuition after the first year.

marshall seems fairly respected locally. a number of judges and politicians graduated from marshall. i don't know if government work appeals to you. the attrition rate is what it is. 19% is high.

if you have any other questions, let me know. i will do what i can.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Univ. of Miami anyone?

i am leaning towards miami. i won't be able to make it to the asw, so i will be really curious to hear what everyone who goes thinks.

seriously, let's just make decisions adcoms.  i am glad i will never have to wait through an admission cycle again. 

good luck everyone.

umass, i don't know if you should read too much into the delay....easy for me to say.

for me, i am still waiting for 8 decisions and seat deposits are coming due soon.  i would love to know how these other decisions are going to shake out, so i can make a final decision.

the world needs ditch diggers, too.

you scratched my anchor!
