Try Penske too. They were cheaper than uhaul when I priced them. I believe they have a v6 though and lower gas mileage.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: W&L or FSU - no $ either place
« on: July 15, 2008, 03:00:57 PM »
I am really confused! I was taken off the waitlist and accepted to W&L on Friday. I am all ready and set to go to FSU. I have an apt, roommates, turned in all of my forms, etc.  I have not been offered any scholarship money to either law school and cost is a factor in my decision.  At FSU my debt would be about $50k and at W&L my debt would be about $100K--a really big difference.  I think I have already made up my mind to go to FSU because I am not 100% sure what I want to do with my degree so I would have more flexability because of less debt to pay back.  I would like to try working in biglaw, but I am not sure that I would be happy doing long enough to pay back $100K. Although, I could love it.  Who knows.  Would I be stupid to turn down W&L? I LOVE Virginia, and I know I would love being in a small Virginia town in the middle of the mountains,but I could see myself in the middle of the rankings at W&L and more towards the top at FSU. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why's that?

Ouch...I just really like turkey and dressing. Is that such a crime? By far the best holiday ever. Don't have to buy anyone poo; you just eat and play Yahtzee. YAHTZEE!!!!!!!

Can't you make your own turkey and stuffing? I hear they have that poo everywhere.

UNC - I think you should bring kung fu to the triangle.

FYI - I'm a girl...it was a little weird to see myself being referred to as a male =)

They always do that here. Unless you're whining.

You live in the northeast. That might explain your horrible attitude. Anyone who relies solely on sub-rankings for law programs is off a little bit. Environmental law is a relatively new specialty that is only now becoming more widespread. IU's SPEA school has been around and well regarded since the 70's. Their dual major JD/MS in environmental affairs is just as good as any competing program (and field experience is a requirement for graduation, not so for JD-only programs in environmental law.)

The field is just now becoming prominent - I have a friend now who is doing a JD/MPH at Emory. Their law school is not as highly ranked as, say, a Harvard or Georgetown, but their school of public health is top notch, with the CDC in their backyard. Would you begrudge her for going to a non-traditional JD powerhouse?

And like you, where you say people in your world respect Tulane, people in my world (and I just moved away from the northeast) have great respect for IU. Let me be clear that I never meant to disparage Tulane in all of this. I wanted to know why Tulane gets much love on this board. I suppose I know why now.

Heyyyyyy!

For those of you who left jobs with a longer tenure, how much notice did you give? The standard 2 weeks?
