Where should I go next fall? / Re: U. of Richmond (out of curiousity)

I'd stay away from Richmond like I'd stay away from Cooley.  Who cares if its pretty?  It's surrounded by an egregiously overpriced undergraduate throng of "mush."  There's a good chance LS shares the same principles as the UG and is probably just out to make a buck so they can replant the flowers every three days.

Not a law school student there; but have known some JD candidates and wasn't that impressed.   Also have heard TERRIBLE things about Michelle Rahman in the admissions office.

Hey guys, it's the internet.

Thank heavens.  Can you imagine if this was all going on in a coffee shop?  It wouldn't quite be a Central Perk full of warm fuzziness when this new guy showed up. 

By the way, I'd be the one bringing in the flask of whiskey to spice up my coffee.  After all, who doesn't like syrup?  It makes coffee taste much better.

You must only drink your coffee black.  No accoutrement; Irish or otherwise.

It looks like you're lost, maybe I can help you find your way. This isn't the "boo hoo Texas rejected me, does anyone know how to tie noose knots?" thread. To the best of my knowledge the vast majority of posters in this thread have, in fact, not faced destroyed realities at the rejection of their application.

No one is bitter. No one is bitching. No one is being mean to future classmates.

This is just a group of people, waiting together and killing time.

Go sell your self-help strategies somewhere else, apparently we've already got enough crazy around here.


Why are you so obsessed with suicide?  Did you write about your preoccupation with death in your PS or statement about overcoming social disadvantage? 

I can see why Texas wouldn't want you.  It doesn't help a school's reputation when weak students decide to kill themselves because they can't hack it.

Are you even applying to law school? Your complete lack of empathy here (regardless about your perception of the schools status, as I'm sure this is where it's going) makes it painfully obvious that you are a total flame.

Lameass.

I do have empathy for the law school admissions process.  However, most of the time it is not something worth stressing over.  Only in situations where you over extend yourself and apply to schools only out of reach and end up with a handful of rejections do you really have any chance to start stressing out.  However, most of the time applicants isolate the perfect school they want to attend so badly.  Building it up in their head they then are destroyed when the rejection letter comes.  While the burn of the rejection is terrible, what is worse is it creates a callous and bitter student who then brings that negative energy into whatever school they actually matriculate to.  So you end up with a bunch of 1Ls that are only at X because Y (UT in this case) burned them.  Sure it probably fades after a few weeks, but still I don't want to be confronted by all this I got rejected from UT bull when I'm meeting folks for the first time at the start of law school.

If you're interested in Billy Mitchell you should go.  Unlike many schools, they have a graduate that made it to the Supreme Court.  As for jobs, talk to 3Ls or people that went there and see where they ended up.  US news rankings have very little correlation with jobs and money after when you get into third and fourth tier.  Take Montana for example, it's a third tier school but ranks dead last in starting salaries...

I think all of this is a little bit obsessive.  Granted UT is a great school and I'm sure they only admit the most qualified students, but putting all your eggs in the UT basket is absurd.  Let's face it, Austin has enough freaks as it is.

Yes.  Obsessing over UT Austin and watching LSN makes you a freak.
