I was wondering if anyone is planning to attend the Rutgers Open House Mar. 29 or the Seton Hall events Mar. 30 & 31?

If you want to end up in Seattle, Seattle U is the clear choice. THere are more lawyers practicing in Seattle from SU than from any other law school. Something similar can probably be said about L&C. I just moved out of Downtown, but its a great place to live. Belltown's nightlife is a lot of fun for sure, as is Pioneer Square's at the south end of Downtown. If you get a hotel in downtown, for the open house, SU, Belltown and Pioneer Square are all walking distance away....

I think I got the same e-mail yesterday, I was quite curious about the expedited decision upon request. Ominous as it sounds, I wouldn't read anything in to it other than your decision is probably coming soon.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Depual, Kent or Loyola-Chicago?

I agree with Matokah's comments.  I am a PT who lives in Chicago.  I chose DePaul (starting in the fall) because of my experience with the school (got an MS from them), alumni network, and the health law program.  You can ask as many people as you want which school is better and you'll get different answers every time.  They all have great reputations in the city and relatively good programs. Visit the school and get a feel for it.  You'll figure out easily after that which one you like the best.

As a Chicago native I can clarify - Loyola is in the River-North/Magnificent Mile area.  It is close to a lot of wealthy/socialite locations.  There is no way to afford to live in anything bigger than a shoebox within walking distance (unless you are working).  However, it is right off the El (elevated train) which runs along the North side of chicago to some really great neighborhoods for 20-somethings. DePaul is also right on an El stop (actually almost every El-line has a stop there) so you can live pretty much anywhere in the city and get there easily.  It's about 10 minute walk to the suburban metra trains and in the heart of the downtown-business district.  Kent is right next to the suburban metra train stations, but a little farther away from the El trains - still right in the downtown business district, though.

What about living a decent walk from DePaul? I'm coming from living in Downton Seattle, so affordable might be a different scale, but I'm really curious about DePaul's surrounding area.   

Wait List / Re: Waitlisted at Loyola Chicago

I was as well. THe only thing I've noticed is it seems like their waitlist is exceedingly large.

I'd say Willamette will serve you well as a quasi-safety. They've already offered some $ to numbers that are very similar to yours. I might add Gonzaga if you're as interested in the PNW as it appears. Good luck.

My personal favorite is when people from Boston, NYC, Washington D.C. or any number of other eastern seaboard cities complain about the rain in Seattle. WE GET LESS...per year Seattle averages 38"..DC 39"...Boston 42"....NYC 47"...the list goes on and on. Its overcast a lot, but it just doesn't rain here as much as everyone seems to believe.

Not to totally hijack the thread, but the soon to be ex-US Attorney from Seattle John McKay is joining the faculty at SU. He's a great speaker, and I'd take anything he offered if I end up at SU.

I got it, and I got in last week. None of the schools I've been invited to events like that for started inviting me until after I was admitted (DePaul has also invited me to a similar event). Hate to get your hopes up, but I'd take it as a good sign.
