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.

Can anyone convince me to send out my Gonzaga deposit tomorrow? Damn, wish I had seen the place to begin with.

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.

95% sure I am attending.  I still got few more schools to hear back from.

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

Emory has two mascots:  Eagles and Dooley.  Our sports team uses Eagles, but we also have Dooley -- it's a skeleton who is supposed to be an eternal soul.  During Dooley's week (it's like homecoming week), when Dooley comes into classrooms, the professor has to either answer all questions from Dooley or dismiss the class for the day.  You also see Dooley walk around on campus with his bodyguards dressed in black suits.

My best wishes for you at GSU.   

Thanks.  Sadly, I didn't get into GSU.  I guess my numbers weren't good enough.  Do any of you know about housing around Gonzaga? About availability, how far it is from the school, etc.  I am planning to go there to check out the school and try to find a housing up there sometime in June or July.

All in all, I think Gonzaga offers very good opportunities for a regional Tier 3 school, along with the potential for a rise in the rankings within the next 3-5 years (right when it would do you the most good).  I'm 95% certain I'm going there.

I hope so.  I scored poorly in LSAT so I didn't get any money from them.  So I'll be taking 40k a year.  Hopefully I'll well in my 1L so I can get some academic scholarship from 2L.  Gonzaga is probably my first choice if I don't get into GSU or South Carolina... I would love to go to GSU since I'll be in-state.

New 2008 ranking came out and WVU is now tier 3 (they lowered their student/faculty ratio a lot).  I like Gonzaga here, but if UALR or WVU can give me in-state tuition after 1L, I may choose one or the other.  Any advice on these schools? Which school has better reputations, etc? Gonzaga and WVU are more tempting 'cause of their sports teams...

Where do you want to practice? You've mentioned nothing about that. That is a big factor between these schools, IMO

My first choice is Atlanta.  That's only if I get into GSU.  I know Gonzaga and WVU's reputation doesn't go down to Atlanta.  My next choices are Seattle, DC, NYU, FL.  Gonzaga places decent in Seattle, I heard.  I don't know how WVU's placement in DC area.  They got very good law schools around there so I assume my chances would be slim.
