For the Penn essays, just write about JoePa as much as possible.

Law School Admissions / Re: should I add an adendum for this?

FWIW, I wrote a similar addendum, and I had no real reason for failing.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Did you watch the debate?

Well, my theory was that most people watch it out of a dubious sense of civic duty and/or a sports fan's desire to see his/her team win. Isn't that exciting?

Carry on.

Same reason I watched the LOTR movies: Golem is adorable.

Gelato is probably the best thing to ever come out of Italy.  I'm not trying to disparage the achievements of Italians - I'm just trying to treat gelato justly.

To be honest, some days I think the catering is the best thing. This cabal called Tri-Star has some kind of protected monopoly on food provision, but the grub is abundant and usually really good. Generally you can scout at least one free meal a day, which is a real money saver.

d00d, tristar is gone. They have someone else this year, but it's still decent, free food.

good i still owe them a tablecloth. maybe the new guys will serve something besides miller lite and peroni.

to be fair, they had corona, but that's not really any better.

Awesome!  Would you say the moot court and communication component of the 1L curriculum, as well as the lawyer as a problem solver session, was beneficial to your understanding of the law?  Do you think this is a real advantage to a 1L experience, or do you think it makes law school feel TOO practical. 

I am really attracted to the practical element of the NU program, but I also like to wax philosophical.  Is there room for both?

Moot court was fun.
Lawyer as a problem solver is a very minor thing (2 nights out of the year). I took some intro to accounting thing which was helpful in understanding financial terminology, but I don't even remember what my second one was.

Also, during 1L year, the classes are very theoretical/philosophical (at least with the profs I had). There's definitely room for both, IMO. You could really load up on 1st A/Law and Social Policy/Law and Rhetoric/etc. type classes for 3 years if that's what interests you.

Yep, I read that, I was hoping for a little more information though.  Thanks!

Anything in particular? If you've had job interviews before, you'll do fine. If you haven't, then NU probably isn't best for you, anyways.
