Hey All!! I'm so glad I found you!! I'm 90% decided on American. I'm looking at going into gender/sexuality law - is anyone else interested in this?
A couple of things:
1) Thanks for all the postings about housing/parking, VERY VERY helpful!!
2) To answer Tuttipoopoo, yeah I'm pretty sure there are no merit-based scholarships for 1Ls (though maybe for 2 and 3Ls? Not sure) except the Public Interest/Public Service Scholarship which you had to apply separately for.
3) Questions for Shadowalker or anyone else: Can you talk about the write-on for the journals? There doesn't seem to be a lot of info online - but it looks like it's in the middle of the spring semester??? Is it super competetive, even for not-law-review journals? Do you know anything about "The Modern American" (publication devoted to diversity and the law) how to get on it, how respected it is, etc.?
Also, second semester 1st year: 2-3 credits of electives? Say more.
Cheers all! Can't wait to meet you in August!!
