Waitlisted at Syracuse. Does anyone know when their seat deposit is due?

If you want to practice in NY, go to CUNY.

Dean Taylor told me their seat deposit deadline is 4/15 and they will be pulling from the WL at some point after that; so it sounds like par for the course in terms of what other schools are doing.
I withdrew from UALR so I hope you'll get to take my spot. Good luck!

UConn. $50k debt out of law school is not that bad.
Does summer course really help you transition into law school? I don't think I am going to take it, but if it significantly helps, I might consider it. I've been out of school for 2 years so being back in school environment might help.
Spokane apparently hosts biggest 3 on 3 basketball tourney in US in July. Their basketball recruit for next year seems good -- one 5-star and two 4-stars. Well, if you are not a sports fan, then I guess that won't convince you.
From what I heard, Gonzaga seems to be well respected in Washington area -- especially Eastern WA. I saw big law firms in Seattle that employs Gonzaga grads. I think Gonzaga's placement is decent. However, you have to be active in making connections while in school. I guess that applies to any non T10 schools.
As for Spokane being a small city, just think of it as opportunity to focus and study. We will need that our first year.
As for Spokane... I am not sure how "cool" the town will be, I was there once and it wasn't terrible, but not as exciting as a place like Seattle. It seemed like a nice mid-sized city, but not overly attractive. I don't think it will matter, I'll be living there for three years then moving, and I will be pretty preoccupied with law school anyway.
Spokane, being a small city, will hopefully give us a better studying environment. Most of us will be out of Spokane after 3 years (some in less) to more exciting cities.

I'll say better school + loans. I don't think anybody can say much unless more details are given.
