For those of you who have been accepted, how long between when you interviewed and when you heard back?  Thanks.

I interviewed early February, did a phone interview three weeks later, then received the acceptance phone call the day after that.

I decided on my school in late January, so sent in my intent to enroll form pretty early.

P.S. is anyone else accepted in the program yet or am I the only one so far?

Honestly, unless you plan on a political/academic future, take Penn and its scholarship offer.

Since your interest is in BigLaw, you can do everything you want to do with a degree from Penn.  Sure Harvard is more name-brand, but that wouldn't matter unless you have political/academic ambitions.

For those of you who have been you know when the program begins?

Orientation starts Memorial Day weekend.  The program lasts typically 10 weeks, but that's up to you and firm.

NYU Summer Housing is already full...  >:(

They didn't bother to call me back to let me know that.  Wasted a week where I could'v been looking for housing else where.

Choosing your school solely based on ranking makes zero sense.

Take a visit to the school.  NU offers up to $200 for plane ticket.  Check out both schools and make a decision then.

Also,  unless you want to stay on the west coast, NU offers significant advantage in job placement everywhere else.

I think that if UCLA eventually breaks the T-14, it will be at the expense of Cornell. I like Cornell, but over the long-run, I just don't see how it is going to hold onto its rank. Remember, UCLA is a relatively new law school and doesn't have the history of Cornell. But UCLA is already more difficult to get into, is the best school (Trojans might disagree) in one of the top three legal markets in the country, and is located in a much more desirable destination than Ithaca. But, maybe the T-14 is forever entrenched, I don't know...

It wouldn't mattered if UCLA was ranked #13.  T14 refers to the fourteen schools that at one time or another ranked in the Top 10. 

There is no possibility, in the foreseeable future, UCLA can jump over Cornell, Georgetown, Northwestern, Duke, and UVA.  Not going to happen...

What are people planning on wearing? I just noticed that the website says we should wear "upscale casual to business casual for all events"

In the email I got this morning mentioned that casual is fine.  The email did mention that the J Bar was upscale casual - whatever that means.

With your Work Experience, you might as well add Northwestern to your Reach list. 

In all honesty, because you have WE, you'd have a better shot at NU than Georgetown.

I'll be the really young (21), not-diverse looking (half-white half-chinese) kid.  I don't see how it can't be a good time.  Is Reinsdorf going to be there?  That would be icing on the cake.  Watching the game in the owner's box with the owner.

Lol, not sure if Reindorf is going to be there or not, but I'll bring an extra copy of my resume just in case! ;D

I will be there!  Can't turn down luxury suite at a Chicago Bulls game.  I'm exited to meet some future classmates as well.
