« on: November 18, 2004, 11:39:23 AM »
Hey,  Im applying to Vandi, Georgia, alabama, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tulane.   Does anyone have any info about these schools, other than the US rankings.  Anything about the social life in particular?  or the type of people that go there?   chris

Thanks for the reply Sara.  And that makes sense about the degree.  Mine not the toughest, but not the easiest. :)

Ya'll are taking this way too seriously by the way.  I am sure that you are all very qualified individuals, who will end up at  fine institutions.  Why worry so much about little ol me?     Plus your degrading comments hurt, i am human you know.  and you made me very self conscious about my casual typing on the computer.  Now I profreed and double check everything that i write.   Just get a beer, relax, and have a good time.  You are all too high strung.

By the way, thanks for giving me that national survey and all.  My statement was the UofC is considered one of the most strict top tier schools when it comes to giving out A's. 

 Here is the list for year 1999

CHICAGO 3.26
Darthmouth 3.31
Duke 3.33
Harvard 3.42
Princton 3.34
Standford 3.34 (in 92) probably higher now

LOOKS PRETTY GOOD FOR UOFC WHICH IS AT THE LOWEST GPA OUT OF THIS LIST  So if the grade inflation rates for the nation are increasing, doesnt quit look like UofC is keeping pace.  Any more statistics you want to bring to my attention?

From the sound of your disgruntal whining, Im assuming that you got rejected from UofC?  and all the others on the list of proposed grade inflation?

No need to scream bloody murder here.  I am fully aware that there are small tier three schools that force kids to work hard.  I am also aware that there are large state schools that let kids coast.  No general assumption here, merely a question.   It just so happens that I know alot of people at other schools with 3.8's that do nothing and would not be considered highly intelligent people, not saying that is the case every where.  And as far as prestigious colleges inflating grades, UofC is particularly known for its lack of inflation among the top tier schools.

My question is, I graduated from the University of Chicago with a 3.55, and I was wondering how much graduating from a prestigious undergraduate college helps your chances for getting into law school.  Considering that an applicant from another college might have a 3.8 whereas my 3.55 was probably harder to obtain.  Any idea of how much, if any, this aspect of undergraduate work is taken into consideration?
