Isn't Wentworth Miller the hottie from Prison Break?  ;D

Absolutely, but it also has to do with the fact that my bosses are giving me less substantive work.  I have a suspicion they want to get to a point where they aren't relying on me anymore.


Wow, Smack...congrats! I'm suprised you passed up UH for Tech too. I'm in a similar situation though - even if I do get accepted to UH, I'm still leaning toward Tech. If all goes as planned, I'll be moving August 1st. Do you have housing lined up yet?

0L here. And also waiting on UH...

If you go to Tech, I'll see you there.  ;D

One thing about Lubbock - it's a crappy little town. The upshot is that virtually nobody stays there after law school; most students move on to one of the major cities in Texas. Their alumni base is very large and very strong. If you want to stay in Texas, you will have many more options coming from Tech than people on this board will lead you to believe.

BTW, good luck with UT!

Unless you got a hefty scholarship from STCL, go to Tech. It's hard to justify the massive debt for a Tier 4 school when you can go to a cheap (if you're a TX resident) Tier 3. Also, I'd only choose STCL if you're certain you want to practice in Houston.

I just want to hear somethingfrom Seattle. They haven't updated my status checker since January 23rd!

What were your numbers (if you don't mind me asking)?

156/3.6 - Not great but there's hope...

It looks like we've applied to many of the same schools. I'm waiting on UH too. So far, it looks like Tech is in the lead.

I'd go to Pitt.  It's the school to go to if you want to stay in the area.  This is your career, don't compromise the opportunities you want to allow yourself for something as fickle as "I'd like to get out and see the world."  It's time to buckle down and wash out that collegiate idealism that plagues so many of this country's youth.

See, I don't think this is fickle at all. There is definitely something to living somewhere that makes you happy. And the fact is that just because the OP wants to return to Pitt now is not an indication that experiences elsewhere might not change his/her mind. Circumstances change, and ideas change. And besides, all the GOOD jobs (if you're not top 10%) are going to be had by networking anyway (yes, i know that's a sweeping generalization) so that if the OP doesnt go to Pitt but comes back for the summers to work and really networks, he might still find a great job. It might not be at the biggest firm in town, but who cares?

That said, I still think that you can combine the best of both worlds by taking advantage of a study abroad. I would do a semester or a year, and not a summer (summers are too important for getting work experience!). One of the schools I'm most interested in offers the option to get a dual degree doing two years at the home institution and then another two years in Spain. Something like that might be ideal.

Sounds interesting. Which school is that, Swirl?

Law School Admissions / Re: Hastings called me girl!

I received my rejection letter from U.C. Hastings on March 15, 2007 that I already knew was coming because of the web tracker. The only thing was that they addressed the letter to Ms. Darren B. Neilson. I am a male and do not take to kindly to being called a girl, no offence to girls. So Hastings dinged me twice, not only did they reject me they also called me a girl. I thought this was pretty funny. Anyone else have something funny like this happen to them?

I hope that's not your real name you are posting on a public message board....
