Acceptances / Re: NYU vs. Columbia Poll

From what I've heard, NYU is stronger in tax law, international law, clinics, public interest, and philosophy and Columbia is stonger in the most other areas (ie twice as many SCOTUS clerks over a certain time period).

Have you read "Ivy Briefs", its about CLS. If so how accurate is it?

How is softball? Do you choose your own teams?

Whats there to do in charlottesville?

Also competition? workload? Professors? where do most 1Ls work?

I don't know much about the process so I just had a quick question:
What is the purpose of a resume? Wouldn't you just be repeating everything from your applications?

Oh Canada! / Marshall Scholarship types for Canadian Citizens?

Canadian Citizens can apply for Rhodes scholarships but not for Marshalls or Trumans.

Are there any similar well known scholarships for Canadians?

How much competition is there?

What is the workload like?

How are the classes assigned? How hard is it to get into the classes you want? How are the clinics?

Did you choose Columbia over NYU? If so why?

What are your peers like?

How are the facilities and the campus?

What do most CLS students do for fun?

Where are you from originally? Is it a big adjustment?

haha a lot of questions I know but you said you where bored?

GC, How accurate do you think Law school confidential is?

Also, I've heard diff things about Ivy briefs, how would you compare it to 1L?

Finally, did you find "should you be a lawyer" helpful? Or is it just commmon sense such as you shouldn't be a lawyer just because 1. You like to argue 2. You don't know what else to do etc.

What do most 1Ls do for their summer jobs?

Side question: What are the most prestigious law firms in Dallas (ie Watchell and Cravath in New York)

thanks and no I don't have any particular concerns just trying to get a general feel, few more questions I thought of:

1. How competitive are NYU students compared to other law schools (of course this could be based on anecdotal evidence since you are not attending any other law schools) What is the workload like, is it more/less rigorous than say Columbia or Chicago. Is there a lot of group studying or is it done mostly on an individual basis? Are your peers friendly/social? Do you see them outside of class very often?

2. How is NYU for Litigation or Corporate law?

3. Im not sure if you'll know this one because you're a 1L but how hard is it to get into classes you want/clinics your second and third year?
