Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Tell me about Vanderbilt

The Obiter Dictum book was a really fantastic idea.  I read the whole thing, and it has really done a good job of winning me over.  We'll see how the March admitted students day goes- anyone else going?

just got the letter from vandy today-

there are 2: March 16 and April 13

And in terms of geographic preferences, i'd say that you could draw a line from Chicago to North Carolina and anything northeast of that would be fine with me.  I don't have any strong draw to any one area, only an aversion to being smack dab in the middle of big cities

I guess I should reveal a little bit more then to help you understand why this is a difficult choice for me-

First, my numbers: 3.9/166.  Second, as stated earlier, I went to BC undergrad so I don't know if that would be a plus or a minus on my resume having attended the same law school as undergrad.  At this point, I should probably wave to all the ad comms out there since they can pretty easily identify me now :P

However, add in this hypothetical- what if I were to have enough money saved away that law school doesn't increase my debt at all?  The scholarship, therefore in this hypothetical situation, would just allow me to put a down payment on a house or something, but it wouldn't put me in a situation of financial strain that would, in theory, force me to consider the starting salary of my job right out of law school (IE Biglaw).

Knowing that, would anyone change their vote?  And Towlie, I'm hoping to be in your boat and get some Penn loving, although its unlikely unless I get my LSAT up a bit (i'm retaking in Feb to have a higher score for those schools who are still waiting on a decision about me)

I have always lived in the northeast and love it here, but I wouldn't be opposed to other areas of the country.  The only thing I am pretty sure about is that I don't want to live in NYC, but suburbs of cities are fine (Boston, Chicago, etc).

I know, not very helpful, haha

I probably should have mentioned that I'm a BC undergrad as well.  Long term goal is to become a judge, if that helps

What would you guys choose and why?  I'm a BC undergrad with a long term goal of becoming a judge, if that helps

Dear Penn,

I know I don't have the 170+ LSAT, but I really, really love you and will do anything to get in.  Please call me tomorrow.

Your loving lap dog,

acceptance is a big 8.5x11" envelope

got my BC acceptance in the mail, turned on my cellphone and got a message from BU admitting me there, what a fantastic 5 minutes that was!
