I was pretty sure I knew where I wanted to go, but the rankings have me a little bit weary...


I am not saying I am basing my decision ONLY on the Top 100 rankings, but I am taking them in account as a factor. 

Could someone direct me to where I can find past Top 100 law school rankings?  I've looked on google and have come up empty handed.  I just want to see which schools are consistantly ranked, and the trends of others.

THanks in advanced.

Acceptances / Thoughts on University of Hawaii?

If I were to go to law school in Hawaii, would I be trapped there?  I mean, would I be stuck having to practice law in Hawaii?

I know its a great school, but my father told me it might be a dead-end. Chances are law firms won't be sending anyone all the way to Hawaii just to look for potential hiress.  So if I'm looking for internships/etc., all my contacts will be in Hawaii.  I'm not saying that this makes Hawaii law school bad, but it is something to think about. 

What do you guys think?

A professor I asked about this told me "No news is good news"

How true is that?

I sent out all my applications just before Christmas, and we are at the end of March and there are still 6 law schools that have not sent me ANYTHING.  Not a deferral/waitlist/acceptance/rejectance/etc.NOTHING.

Now that April is approaching, would you say that more likely than not I am going to get rejected by the remaining schools? Does this long wait indicate anything?

I already got accepted to some Top 100 law schools (which was my goal) so no matter what happens I will be happy.  But I would be ecstatic if I got accepted by any of the schools that are remaining except for 1.

Thanks in advanced for any advice you may have to offer on this situation.

There is also the "we need to add another African-American/Female/etc." factor as well

Coming out should be okay, as long you do not go over the top with it.

And if you do come out, do not apply to any Catholic Universities.  FYI I am not kidding

I have 4 acceptances, 5 rejections and 1 deferral. 

Today is March 21st and I am still waiting on 6 other schools, 5 of which I would take over the ones I've already been accepted to.  I've been hawking the mailbox every morning and it is getting to the point where I am starting to lose my mind.  I just want to know where I am going next semester.
