CP - You mentioned that you graduted with ~50k in debt.  I'm wondering what your scholarship package looked like?  Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post that info on here.

3.75/167  Trying to figure out what sort of debt I'll be dealing with.

Oops... momentary time warp to March.  Connecticut will always be a basketball state.

Who says 0Ls have no interest... New Orleans?  Sign me up!

Is anyone on here involved in work to help rebuild the city?  Are there opportunities (rebuilding or otherwise) unique to the school's location in New Orleans?

Any idea what sort of scholarship I might qualify for?  167/3.75

How did you like the campus?

Rhesus: I'm glad to be reassured about the state bar issue.  You're right... I probably won't have a good idea of where I'll end up until financial aid packages start rolling in.  I'd prefer a full ride at BC to zilch at Columbia.  As for LRAP's, I'll definitely do some research but I'm hesitant to rely on them as a way to pay down debt.  Will those programs still be funded in four years??  Ackk... who knows...

Numbers: Good to know and congrats on your scholarship.  Emory is on my list.

Ninja:  Boise State Law, here I come!

Right... but does going to law school in Virginia, for example, put me at a big disadvantage for taking the bar in NY?  Plenty of lawyers attend school in one state and take the bar in another.  I thought that the alumni base was the big draw of attending school near where you would like to work.

Given my career goals, I'd like to incur the least debt possible.  My numbers are 3.75, 167... good, not great.  I'm trying to locate schools in the top 50 that will offer a bunch of money.  With those two parameters, my targets are all over the map (geographically speaking).

I understand that the top 14-20 schools (or so) have national name recognition.  The rest are considered regional schools.  Does this distinction matter outside of biglaw?

I'm interested in public interest, advocacy, or maybe government.  Assuming I don't choose to attend a t14, is it necessary to choose a school near where I would like to work after graduation?

Bridget - I'm in the same position.  I'd be interested to know how that works out.  Would you re-post with an update on your success/failure in getting waivers?

I'm in the same situation.  I plan to use the same letters supplemented by a LOR from an employer.  At least that will show that I impressed someone new in the last two years.

I took the LSAT in October of 2005.  Any idea how to go about getting fee waivers for this cycle?

Just see if you can access the admitted students forum and find out.  There's a link to it on the status check.

There is?  :-[
