Have any of you been looking around at various law schools and just been completely turned off by the law school building itself? I mean, you go from laws schools like the one at Michigan, Cornell, Notre Dame, etc. then you look at the ones at Vanderbilt and UVA and it's like WTF?  The buildings are objectively nice and all but don't fit in with the law school vibe at all.

i thought UVa's law school was very nice, but in a diff way from Mich, who gets brownie points for looking like Hogwarts  :D

Don't get me wrong, UVA has a nice campus, it's just that the building isn't...well....law schooish.  If your founder is Thomas Jefferson, who was himself a law student, the building you're studying law at shouldn't look like that.  It shouldn't look like a community health center or middle school.  Do you see the disconnect I'm talking about?

try going from any of those to BU

Hear hear.  I was definitely not impressed by BU's building, especially after visiting campuses such as BC's and Harvard's. 



If we forget about BU's building for a minute, Boston College's building is exactly the type of building that I'm talking about that I don't like.  It looks like the damn middle school that I went to that was build one year before I got there.  It doesn't give you the feeling of like refined elegance or anything.  How the hell you get that feeling from a school in ANN ARBOR of all places and not in BOSTON is beyond me.

You mean that skyscraper thing?  Let's not define the quality of a law school's building relative to that one...it would be hard to look bad in that case.

Was Vandy nice enough to sway either of you from Cornell?
I haven't visited Cornell yet, so I can't say for certain.  I agree with most of the positive points in SugarJ's review, so Vandy wouldn't be a terrible place to be for 3 years.  But I am hoping that Cornell would be a better fit for me.  Not sure about the coldness, mostly.   ;)

You think you're going to find a ton of racial diversity in upstate NY?

games. boo.

Indeed.  But as long as I learn the techniques well enough, I should be able to mow them down.

Many of the tests in recent years have had 3 games that are linear in nature and only 1 grouping game.  It looks like recent tests have been leaning more heavily towards linear games but as you have probably seen there are tests with 2 grouping and 2 linear. 

Overall there have been more linear based than grouping based games but you never what you will get on test day.  You need to make sure you are familiar with all major game varieties. 

Grouping games are generally harder than linear games so make sure you don't neglect them.  You don't want one hard game to ruin the section and ruin the day for you. 

How much emphasis should I put on what the LG bible calls "rare" games?

News Discussion / Re: Ann Coulter calls Edwards a Faggot.
« on: March 18, 2007, 08:30:34 PM »
Is there something particularly offensive about calling someone something that he/she obviously is not?  Edwards is married with kids.  Despite his fantastic hair, everyone, even Ann, knows hes not gay.  Sooo she called him a faggot, people call Bush a nazi and war crimminal all the time, both equally untrue statements.  Will you all get up an arms about such comments that serve only to cheapen the severity of the holocaust?

Bush is a war criminal, though.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Michigan vs. Texas

Depending on what you want to do and where you want to work, I wouldn't be so quick to put Michigan above Cornell.  You're only talking about 5 ranking spots anyway.
