Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Wake Forest?
« on: January 31, 2008, 03:47:20 AM »
So, I couldn't really find much in posting history here on wake forest law.  any opinions?  They just sent me a full scholarship offer, and though I'm still hoping for something similar from Vandy (long shot, but I'm dying for it) or something less impressive but significant from somewhere in the T14, I would really like some opinions.  Thanks!

To be honest, I don't really remember when I heard from UNC.  My family gets my law school things in the mail, opens them, then compiles them into a package to send to me here in Moldova.  I'll let you know when I get the next batch with the UNC date on it.  I think it was just before the holidays.

So the more I hear about UVA, the more I want in...why, oh why, do they have to keep me in suspense?  Anyhow, a lot of things will come down to money (not expecting any full scholarships from T14s, but I really don't want to graduate with more than $100,000 of debt), but I am really appreciating the info thus far...please go on, lsd community!

I know this is a bit late, but I did this too, and it was a huge relief.  Duke was the first response I got, and is still in the top 2 schools where I've been accepted thus far...yay Duke for this!

So I'm currently living abroad, I did all my application activities from this little country in eastern europe and won't be heading back to the states until the summer.  Thus, I won't be able to visit any of my schools; while I understand nothing can replace a visit, I'm not willing to wait a year to enroll, so I'd really like to hear peoples' impressions of the communities at different schools (including the ones I'm still waiting on a response from).  I know that a certain level of competition is going to exist at any top law school, esp the T14s, but I want to avoid any truly cutthroat schools, as well as the more "pompous" institutions.  So here are my schools:

Applied/ No Response Yet:  Chicago, Columbia, Harvard, NYU, Penn, Virginia
Applied/ Accepted: Cornell, Duke, Emory, Georgetown, Michigan, Northwestern, UNC Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt
Applied/ Rejected: they've been sparing my feelings so far

I'd appreciate any input, whether from what other pre-lawers have heard, or from visits, or from current students, or from...whoever.  Please, I'm desperate.  Thanks for your help!!
