Law School Applications / Re: Advice please! Penn Columbia late apps

If you nail the LSAT, you'll nail the school. Just be careful, they might throw some more fashion questions into the test that are blatantly biased towards heterosexuals; so maybe you should study up on straight culture!

Law School Applications / Re: Waitlisted at Duke
« on: February 09, 2007, 12:28:13 PM »
I think the admissions office at Duke is well aware of the fact that many people with high scores are only applying because of the PT.

I applied through the priority track with numbers that are higher than Duke's 75%s, and they offered me a waitlist spot after my ten days were up. It could just be that they didn't like my application, but I'm willing to bet that they were also under the assumption that I wouldn't attend even if they accepted me.

So good luck to those that go on the waitlist/are still pending. I'm sure that a large part of the waitlisting is that they want to make sure that you want to attend the school before they accept you, so definitely go for it and write an awesome letter of continued interest.

I cannot believe  you spent between $1000 and $4000 on applications (the smaller amount is assuming you had fee waivers some places and just paid LSAC fee).  You couldn't narrow it down a bit? I'm not complaining, it's good the economy to have that much money moving around (or good for the law schools and LSAC), but could you explain your motivation?  Would you really want to attend any of the 35 schools that accepted you?  Or is there a rank order among the 35?  Or did you figure you'd send out applications everywhere and make real decisions after getting acceptances?  Why stop at 35 in that case.  Ok, I'm giving you a hard time, please don't take it personally, I was just shocked with the number.  Good luck!

I'd assume that the guy just really wanted to be sure he got into law school! I think it's hard to blame him, personally. ;)

I'm a ucla alum and I consider USC to be part of LA.

Just not the part of LA I'd want to be in outside of a car.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: NYU Guided Tour

This board is obviously beyond dead; I posted this sometime last night and it's still very close to the top.

Still, I hope you provide some good info on NYU, because I'm very interested in the school. The way I view NYU vs Columbia is that housing is a female dog at NYU, but you'll be in a way better location for going out.

Either way though, it's a tough choice.

I personally would definitely choose NYU over chicago, but I'd probably choose columbia over NYU.

It's a tough choice, with NYU you're in the middle of the awesomeness that is NYC, and with columbia you're 30 minutes away, which is close enough to visit but far enough away that the housing situation doesn't suck.

What really would determine it for me, though, is that columbia is a better-ranked school in general, and I think that adds to the prestige level, even if both law schools are equal.

Be sure to post a review, complete with lots of pictures. Not just one of the campus, but also take a night out in the town and post info about that too.

I appreciate it. ;)

But honestly, I'm sure it'll be loads of fun.

I'll fully admit that initially, I only applied to Duke because of the priority track program, but I'm actually considering them at this point.

I've received tons of application packets from schools, and pretty much all of them are dull and say nothing about the school that isn't extremely generic (excellent campus, diverse student body, reknown law library, etc). OTOH, Duke's booklet spends a lot of time talking about all of their intellectual and academic programs, many of which are fascinating imo.

I like the mocha at starbucks personally. It's on the bitter side and not overly sweet.
