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!!
