Transferring / Re: Kent (2nd tier-66) or Depaul (3rd tier)?

I'm afraid you missed my point. The problem is not that they accept to many students without adequate facilities, the problem is that they do not coordinate with the Undergrad University to utilize existing facilities which is an administration problem.

I don't attend an Ivy school so maybe it's different for me, but at DePaul there is not this sense of "war." In fact, it's a very friendly atmosphere.

It has never been what you know. It has always been who you know. Now if you perform poorly that can hurt you and a decent performance definitely helps. Perhaps a large firm looking to boost its standing by hiring from Harvard or Yale may pass you by anyway, but if they like you they will create a position for you.

No, highschool provides you with tons of feedback to evaluate your progress, while law school does not.

What do you guys know about tablet PC's? I've heard they are very reliable though expensive.

Better than work? I have work experience and I think law school is way harder. I work 9-5 in the Public Guardian's office now and it's a break compared to law school. Mainly because I can go home and not worry about anything. The stress stops when I get on the elevator.

Well, I attend DePaul and have visited Kent.

Kent has much better facilities than DePaul, but is known to more competitive and less friendly than DePaul. I enjoy most of the students at DePaul.

However, DePaul has a less than stellar administration, poor in fact. I sat knee to knee w/fellow students in several of my finals, that is extremely uncomfortable and completely unnecessary. There is some kind of animosity between the university and the law school that prevented the law school from borrowing adequate room space during finals.

In addition, they tend not to stock books in a timely fashion, and getting ISBN's for the books is very difficult to do in time to order them for class (the book store is generally over priced).

On the other hand, the professor’s are very approachable.

Go with your gut.

No legal writing?????? What law school? Maybe I should've went there. Legal writing is by far the most demanding class I took my first year.

FYI, a quick glance showed these cards citing RT2d, 292, 278 270, 267, 294, 499, 526. Who knows if the law has changed.
