Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: In at Kentucky
« on: February 02, 2005, 07:29:58 AM »
Originally I had thought I would pick U of L over UK (if I stay in state) because they seem more public service oriented.  However, I visited U of L this past Friday and was VERY disappointed with the visit.  THe facilities are inferior to UK and frankly so are the admission staff.  UK has really been trying to win me over through emails, letters, information, etc.  U of L has done nothing to try and sway me (they don't even return my phone calls). After visiting there is no way I would pick U of L over UK.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Where to Live in Pitt?

Is the flats area reasonable for a commute to school without having to rely on a car?  I have a car but would prefer to walk, bus or bike.

I'm also 95% sure I'm going to Pitt.  I currently live in a town about 250,000 people.  I definetly like living in a downtown area where you can walk to most everything you want to do.  Would Oakland/Shadyside give me that?  What about across the river (i think the neighborhood is called south side flats?) I had a friend recommend that area and that I could bike or bus to school from there.  Whatcha think?

Louisville has nothing on Lextown!  I would prefer to go to Louisville for Law School but I love Lexington as a place to live.

SHould you wait to apply to for private loans (through access or wherever) until after you know how much you will get through FAFSA?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Job prospects in DE from Widener

My mom is a doctor in Dover and she says Widener has a fair reputation in Delaware.  She has lawyer friends that went there and had no problem with the school.  I think the main issue is that it limits your options for job prospects.

Just wondering . . . what's the rush with submitting FAFSA?  I was planning on waiting until I do my taxes at the end of the month.  Is there any benefit to submitting this early?  I thought I saw somewhere that the priority deadline is April 1.

From the research I have done, their curve is hard.  The average students (according to the director of admissions) fall in the B-, C+ range.  At Pitt, for example, the average student falls in the B, B+ range.  I think the main consequence of a grade curve like Wideners is the atmosphere it creates (hostile, cutthroat, etc.)  Sounds crappy to me.

I looked on their site for grading policies and in the career section it says that the professors must grade so the average is 2.5ish.  Also, they have grade distribution charts for the last three years that show top 25%-20% have 3.0 and above.

I was offered full scholarship as well and after doing some digging it didn't seem so great.  I definitely wouldn't pay to go there and their grading policies are such that it would be hard to keep the money.  I won't take the chance that I would have to pay for them.  If it was my only choice I would be happy but I've been accepted to tier 1 schools including my first choice.
