I'm a 1L at Boston College.  I made the choice to come here over Duke because BC gave me 16k a year.  It's the best decision I've ever made.  I took the extra savings and bought a condo, which has appreciated enough in the first 7 months to cover my undergrad debt.

In all honesty, the best advice is this: Save money IF the school you will be going to is in an area where you want to work.  You will most likely end up working where you go to school, unless you go to a school such as Duke that ships their kids off to NYC / Boston / Etc.

Hope that helps.

Dunno, I just have a voicemail to call the dean, but I'm at work right now.  I'll update.

We may have a correction to that list...I sent a balls-out email to duke.  They called me back.

Careful, you get jumped around these parts for making negative assumptions about a school.

No kiddin?  I'm flatttered.  I just say ormachea's name on the post list here, and since he's the resident austin hottie (or so I hear ;)I had to come check up on him.

I'm gonna have to say, LisBeth is the new spinal tap.  This one goes to 11.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news...

I called the admissions office today, they said they have the class 'right where we want it' and she would be surprised if they took more than 1 more person off the list...

Are you a gambling man?
Not even addressing the fact that you will be giving up a year of first year lawyer salary by waiting a year to even start school, which in itself is reason enough NOT to delay, I'd say forget about reapplying.

I was considering deferring, that sentence just changed my mind.  You, sir, are a genious for helping me see the other side of things.
