Stop asking us to choose for you between schools all in the top ten.  I mean seriously, you are gonna be rich, just pick which city you want to study in for three years.

I got accepted to Yale, Harvard, Chicago, and NYU all on full rides.  Which one should I choose?  the decision is killing me.  SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

I haven't heard anything back from Tennessee.  Has anyone been hearing anything, rejection, waitlisted, or accepted?  Just curious if they are sitting on the apps as of late until the very end, or if they have been giving out decisions recently.

Looking at the Lawschoolnumbers, there isnt anyone listed as being rejected yet from Tennessee.  Has anyone gotten rejected yet? Or are they just waiting until the last minute to send out all of the rejections?

I agree, and I do expect to get rejected to Georgia.  However, I still havent heard back from Tennessee, and I really should be accepted there, so I wouldnt say that all hope is lost for schools that you havent heard back from yet.   Plus, considering that my numbers arent too great for Georgia, the longer they look at my app and that I dont hear something back the better, because hearing back earlier would be nothing but a rejection.  With that said, I still almost certainly will get rejected, the glimmer of hope is what is killing me.   Hard to be a pessimist, or even at times, a realist.

Im from Chicago.  So not in state.  If they are taking care of in state first, I hope they still have some room left.

Waiting on UGA and Wake is killing me.  Especially UGA though, because I've been in review for well over a month now.   So I feel your pain.  Doesnt help that I check my status every single time that i use the computer, I mean do I really think that someone is going to be updating my status sometime between 6:00p.m and 2:00 a.m?    I need some help.

Im a big sports guy, I love wrestling the most (not wwf), but there is something great about tailgating and then going to see a football game.  Ill have to keep up with the Bears through the internet (im a die-hard fan), but I really want to be a part of a college/football type of atmosphere.  So i dont think that will be much of a problem.  Basketball games can be fun too, so Kentucky has that.   Decisions, decisions,  going to law school is so much more than the US News rankings, at least for me.   keep the opinions coming !!!

     Actually, I am from Chicago, went to U of C, and I am looking for a change of scenery.  I only applied to southern schools, and Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi look to be the three that I am going to decide on.   
    I want to live and work in the south, I just want a little bit of flexibility down there, such that I dont want to go to Mississippi and have no option other than working in Mississippi, or go to Kentucky and not be able to possibly work in Tennessee after graduation.  I just want a little bit of geographical options.  Hopefully my grades will make up for a lacking in regional recruitment.   
   with that said, I am placing a large emphasis on enjoying my three years of law school.  I plan on studying hard and partying harder.  Three years is a long time, and I really hated U of C's social atmosphere, and i dont plan on repeating that mistake.  I think earning a lighter salary in a southern state is worth it, because the cost of living is lower and the weather nicer -- and in my opinion the girls are cuter :-).   
    I would, however; like to have the option of earning some good money, possibily, eventually, moving to a big city, but a big city in the south, not the North, such as; Nashville, Atlanta, Birmingham, etc.   So which of the three has better southern mobility?  I am guessing either Tennessee or Kentucky?   
     How does everyone like living and working in Mississippi and tennessee and kentucky?  Any other opinions on each respective law school ??? The more input the better,  and thanks for all of your help so far,  chris.

    Hey everybody, I need some feedback about these schools.   Particularly:
1)the social life there
2)the job prospects (only regional or boardering states?)
3)what does everyone think about working in each respective state?

Any feedback about any of the above schools would be greatly appreciated, even if its something that i didnt specifically ask feedback about.   - thanks.
