Law School Admissions / Re: Do visits help?
« on: June 05, 2008, 12:39:17 PM »
All I know is I can't afford to visit the schools I'm interested with gas approaching $4. So unless I strike oil in the next few months, I'm going to be applying blind.

Approaching?  I wish gas were $4 here!!   :-\

I visited three schools, including the one I will be attending, and I think it was extremely helpful.

so you, but nobody mention it until now.

Maybe so, but at least I'm not running for president.

This sums up my attitude, and where I will be come November.  They're both awful.

According to my school, the funds become available the first week of class.

I'm not sure which board I should post this on, but I thought I'd try here.  I'm going to be looking for a roommate, male or female, in Philadelphia (I will be at Temple) and was wondering if anyone from any of the Philly area schools is also and would like to exchange emails and see if we might be a good match?  I figured I'd try LSD before Craigslist haha.

Describe your ailment.

:( :( :(

The entry-level job strain of senioritis.  Which I actually think is worse than actual senioritis.  At least senior year of college I was wasted all the time.

Tag.  I have a similar question.  Has anyone contacted anyone from their undergraduate alumni network?  My UG is known for having very "loyal" alumni, but I feel awkward emailing/calling and asking questions of people I have never met...

Law School Admissions / Re: REJECTED, ETC. TODAY

I was rejected yesterday to the University of Alabama after being deferred since November.  Not too upset, but it certainly took them long enough!

I really think Rutgers is your best option out of those three.

I would rank them 1) Rutgers, 2) Catholic, 3) Pace.  I just don't think Pace places very well even within NYC.  In terms of local competition, it is even worse than Catholic.  (Competing with NYU/CLS/Fordham/Cardozo/BLS/St. John's and possibly NYLS, not to mention people from T1 schools relocating to NYC.)

Maybe I'm weird, but I would rather pay it forward because I think it's the right thing to do instead of being told that I am obligated to do it. The latter is a huge turnoff.

I guess I'm immoral, because if I am not obligated to pay something back there is no way in hell I would.  These schools have enough money.
