I applied late Nov, got my acceptance in middle of December. The only chance I will go there is if they offer a full ride + cash. Even then, I doubt I would change my mind.
I adore Penn, and I don't really get all the Penn hatred here.
Interesting about Michigan, though. I have never worked in a law firm, so I've never been exposed to anybody of merit who considered Michigan to be so well-regarded.
Oh I love Penn too. I'm just well aware that its rise to fame is very recent, and I don't think it's legal reputation matches its rank. Penn is not really a #6 school IMO. It's just not. Berkeley, UVa, Michigan, and Chicago are miles ahead of Penn in reputation.
Disclaimer: This is not to say that any school is your top choice...just that it would greatly ease your mind to hear from them for whatever reason.
Since we're all stressing out about the loooong wait, and since many of us have had long stretches of nothingness between news from law schools...
Which one of your pending schools would it be a huge sigh of relief to hear from? A response of HYS is looked down upon for its simplicity.
It's NU for me, really. If I could just get in there, then at least I'd have an option to leave DC and go to a great school where I'm pretty sure I'd be happy.
...Of course, if Penn came a-callin, I'd certainly listen to what they had to say...
right, but that's about scholarships. I'm wondering about original acceptances. Do people even do that?
does anyone have any tips on preparing for the interview? I heard that it was very hardcore last year.
ps, great essay!
