How is USD's national rep? Does it have one? I know the city of San Diego is great, but I'm not 100% sure I'd want to stay there after graduation if I went to USD.

U. of Detroit Mercy- sends me unsolicited emails all the time. I clicked the link to be unsubscribed and I'm still getting occasional emails. The last one was something about Hemp or medical marijuana somehow related to their school.
Not that I'm against an occasional puff, but I don't know if those are really the best solicitation emails to people who may already not know much about the school.

I applied to too many saftey schools, and also a couple schools that I probably just won't go because it would be too big of a move. Indiana Bloomington is a nice school, but I'm in California! Am I really going to travel across the US and go to school in Indiana, where I've never been and have no friends or family?
Probably not. $75.00 (or whatever it costs to apply) down the drain

For Christmas/New Year's, I was in the same boat as Katheryn H.'s boyfriend. My girlfriend actually said "no gifts". But apparently no gifts doesn't actually mean no gifts, so she showered me with presents and I was empty handed.
So I made sure to do it up for Valentine's Day with a dozen roses and a nice dinner and a digital camera. I still didn't have a card though, and I could tell that she wanted a card!
At least I made a big effort.

What about practicing in San Diego? Everyone is so hot on the Bay Area, which is understandable, but how is the market in San Diego?
It is a beautiful campus, and I'll probably attend the March 18th open house for admitted students. My only thing is that I read in a guide book that most of the students are married. I think, while not the most important factor, it would be nice to have somewhat of a community feel, with people near my age (24). Anyone have any thoughts on whether I'm off base?
I went to Tulane undergrad, and New Orleans is a really fun place to be. It is slow-moving, swill, and a little foul as well, but living there for a few years isn't a bad experience, though I'd consider it to be better suited to undergrad.
Emory is a much more reputable school however, and unless you can't afford it or don't want loans, I'm sure salary benefits would pay off in the long run easliy.
It's like comparing USF with a $15,000 scholarship to Boalt with no money. I'd take Boalt! (ok not a perfect comparison)

Good Lord, it seems like many schools tend to get mostly positive comments. Not Hastings though! It's crazy how just about every comment I read talks about how bad the school is.
I'm waiting to hear whether I got in or not too, but I almost wish I hadn't applied!
I think I'm accepted, because I could log on to their Admitted Students page. Not sure about $$, probably not. Now I just have to wait to hear from Davis and Hastings.
I feel like location is important, and I could honestly see myself practicing in Portland. I'm still not sure how Lewis and Clark is viewed outside of Oregon though.
That's definitely it. I can barely remember it as I they called out 5 minutes right before I started the last one! It would have been a good call to save the Puerto Rican code-switching passage for last considering it only had 5 questions.
