Where should I go next fall? / Re: STILL checking UGA status online
« on: March 15, 2005, 07:17:52 PM »
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.

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

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?
