i've gotta say it's refreshing to see so much love for Penn on a board that's been bashing it all year  :D

It only gets better from here.

Go to W&M.  It's older, which is fun if you dig history or con law. 

That is my completely non-technical reason for why I chose to apply to W&M rather than W&L. 

Also, from what I understand - W&M places into DC, while W&L is more into the South.  I don't have any numbers to back that up, though, so take it with 3 and a half grains of salt.   ;)

Don't worry.  You're going to end up at a great school.  Trust me.

Glass is half-full, my friend  :)

I don't understand why Boalt is perceived so negatively on this board. It seems to be a lot harder to get into than MVP, not to mention the tremendous international prestige of UC Berkeley.  Why is that?

Funding problems, location, and heavily partisan ideology.  Also, very far from the Eastern markets AND midwest. 

I've thought this for quite a while:


I'd list my reasons, but they've been hashed out about a thousand times on this board.

Guys, I've said this before, but it bears repeating:  LIVE IN CENTER CITY.  Please, please trust me on this.... everyone who has lived elsewhere has regretted it.  If you're looking for quiet, look towards the Fitler Square area (Walnut-South, 20th-27th).  Tons of law students live around here... trust me, you will be close to your friends (and me!).   :)

This is very, very true.  I couldn't find a place in Center City (I only had two days, and I have a dog, which made it tricky), and living in University City pretty much sucks. 

Does uni city suck because there are no bars/nightlife around, or because the actual quality of the living areas sucks?

I just RSVP'd. I also opted for the mock crim class... anybody else?

i took crim law at penn last year, so if i do a class it will NOT be crim.

Really?  Want to tell us how you liked it/if the Socratic method is as terrifying as i think it will be??

i LOVED it, completely loved it.  socratic method is fun for me because i like speaking in public, and i enjoy the challenge of working something through with the professor outloud.  if that kind of thing makes you anxious, then you might have some difficulty.  in total, though, it really wasn't difficult as long as you did the reading and have been paying attention in class.  Some professors at Penn will let you know when it will be your day to speak, so you can plan.  I sort of liked the element of surprise.

You want to come join us at Penn and hang around there a little longer. 

You know you do.  Just admit it  ;)

I was ENFJ, and it was spot on.  :)

I think you may have a chance at NYU, but not a great one.  It's worth applying though, if you really want to go to one of CCN.  You never know.

Have you thought about Michigan?  You already have ties there...
