if you guys don't hear soon, PM me with your name and I'll get in touch with your hosts to make sure they get ahold of you. each of us who are hosting students got a master list with all your names and contact info, as well as who your host is, so we should be able to help. I have the opposite problem as you guys- i e-mailed both of my students but they haven't gotten back to me yet.
Hey everyone! I just got in a couple of days ago I'll be at ASW this month so I hope to meet lots of people there!
First, congrats! Glad to hear you are coming to the ASW. Students aren't ranked- the only sort of ranking you will ever find out is the order of the coif (top 10 or 20%, i forget) at graduation. Other than that, students are forbidden from even trying to figure out their GPA or class rank. We aren't allowed to put our GPA or estimated class rank (which we haven't calculated, remember? ) on our resumes. However, firms will ask for transcripts, and Penn will release those- they just won't ever release a calculated GPA or a rank.
Collegiality is our buzzword, but its legit. I obviously cannot speak to other schools, but Penn is very laid back. The 1Ls have our big appellate brief due on Wednesday, and people are still taking the time to help each other out in the library and answer questions, even under an extreme time crunch such as this one. Penn's atmosphere and student body sold me on the school last year when I came to the ASW, and I hope you have the same experience!
