DC if funny...

We are getting way more snow in Colorado Springs today but it hardly warranted a blurb on the nightly news.

If it were a choice between Cooley and not going to law school, which of you wouldn't go

Raises hand.

IMO if you cant get into a t2 or t3, its probably best to think of other career options.

Lower numbers ACCOMODATED by other soft factors (i.e. successful career)

Not always. I cant say my 8 month stint as a claims adjuster after graduating from UG early counts as a successful career. At the same time, I do think they try to weed out people who are blatantly trying to 'back door' the school. 

I think it actually can make a decent bit of sense to do PT if you can get a decent job to mitigate your debt.

I would like to find out a bit more as well regarding the gunnerness of the place.

What is the political climate like? I assume its fairly political by virtue of the location.

I can't say I really agree with this, at least in the more global scheme of things. Some schools (GW for one) will ask you if you want to be considered for the P/T program if you are WL'ed from F/T.

I agree that many schools do use PT for that reason, but based on what g-town says about its PT program, I feel it has a bit different philosophy on the matter than GW for example.

Interestingly enough, GULC was originally PT only.

And that's a bad thing?

Perhaps that was poorly worded. What I meant to say is ft/pt says, "I dont really think I have the numbers, but I am willing to settle for pt if it gets me in."

The pt program is not supposed to be a provisional acceptance or a way to accept people with lower numbers. Its supposed to be a way for working professionals to continue to work while attending a top law school.  If you don't really want to do PT, but are willing to settle- thats not what they want.

Anyways, thats my theory. Quite a few who applied ft/pt with my numbers were rejected outright.

Nealric: did you apply only to PT or to both?

PT only. I honestly think that was the key.

FWIW- I am only 21 and have no connection whatsoever to DC. I have been out of school this year and been working in a reasonably respectable job.

If you apply PT/FT, you are just saying that you want to go to G-Town at all costs and dont care how.

If you apply PT only, you show real intrest in the program. The more I think about it, the more I really like the idea of doing PT.  Hopefully I can get out with maybe $75k debt rather than $150k  ::) Seems like I could actually make it work in my favor for recruting.

Anybody know if a packet will be coming?

As much as I love the nice stationary, It would be nice to get something a little bit more substantial.

everyone else who went to decision on the 5th seems to be a 170+ and/or URM.

I am neither 170+ nor URM
