ditto! It's such a long shot for me, but a PI scholarship at either place would seal the deal!
Even over Boalt?

The thing about Harvard vs Yale UG is meant half in jest, and half seriously for the following reasons: college, to my mind, is much more about quality of life and associated stuff. Harvard UG seems far less student-friendly in the ways I mentioned than Yale does (yes, lack of benches on the main quad means that people can't/don't congregate there, merely pass through on their way to class, etc.), and to me, that's a Significant Point of Difference between the two schools, since college, I think, you're there for more than the degree. Law school, on the other hand, = vocational school, and things like that become less important.
Well how bout this for drama -- not only do I know Sophie...I LIVE with her!
...and tonight we're going to talk about how creepy you are.
My number one choice is very far from where I live, but I am going on vacation nearby and was planning on dropping in to see the school. I have not yet heard a decision (and am nervous this will jinx me!), but I am really passionate about attending the school. Does anyone have any experience with this or recommendations about things I should/should not do? Should drop by the admissions office and let them know i'm there?
I have not heard from Stanford and have been complete since November. It is definitely a long shot with my LSAT, but I was wondering if I should send a preemptive LOCI. I did this at other school with great success, but am worried because i've been waiting so long that a waitlist might be coming my way and then I will have nothing additional to send.

so this is kinda a weird question, but living in new york i have become pretty aggressive about apartment hunting. i am visiting berkeley next week on thursday and friday (i can't get to asw). should i begin looking for apts i find off of craigslist now?
in that vein, do any people who are graduating or moving (like london bound jd...) have studio or one bedroom apts that they like (and aren't overpriced or dirty)that have leases that begin in august sometime? i was thinking i could talk to a managment company about taking over a lease before the place goes on the market, so i don't have to worry all this summer (and get screwed with my rent). maybe pm if you have a place?
thanks again for all the advice and help!
