in at University of Arkansas - Fayetteville.

my first one so now i can relax b/c i know i will be going somewhere.

i called in sick today and at abpout 9am the assistant dean called me.  i wasn't going to answer b/c it came up as an unavailable number.  glad i did though.  he said they were impressed with my accomplishments and really liked my personal statement.  if i didn't have the flu i would go party.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Valpo vs. Northern Illinois?

i agree with brad.  if the cost is equal then it breaks down to where u want to spend 3 years and where u want to practice.  i did my undergrad at NIU and its a good environment, but i can't tell specifically why some prefer on over the other.  best thing to do is go visit both, sit in on some classes, talk to people, then make ur decision on that.

Interesting... NIU is usually brushed aside as a 4th tier toilet and now I hear that it places well in the third largest city in America. Does anyone else think this obsession with the US News ranking might be unhealthy and meaningless?


i don't really look at the tiers and didn't really know their "importance" until i started coming here.  i have always picked schools based on my needs and not on what other people think.  to me NIU is a good school and has a good law school. its one of my top 5 choices.

but anyway.. Congrats again!!!

Congrats!!!

i did my undergrad work at NIU.  Its a good school and the cost isn't crazy.  They have a pretty good law program.  I am not sure how the place in Chicago though.

i think most people come here looking for information that is str8 forward, but generalizing and stereotyping is never productive.  i can never say that all people at "top" schools are a certain way b/c i have not visted all "top" schools or no all the people that attend them.  soi think it is unfair to assume that all students that go to a tier 3 or 4 school are the same way.  imagine coming to this board seeking help and all u find is people bashing students from central/southern illinois.  imagine people constantly saying that u r not as smart b/c of were u grew up or whatever.  it would not be a place u would want to frequent.

if all u can see is the top schools, thats is fine b/c its ur right.  however, don't degrade other schools for not being T14.  don't base everything on the score from one test.  don't assume that 150 means a person won't be a successful lawyer.  never under estimate others b/c in many cases u will be surprised.

so i never really was into vidoe games.  i had a playstation (the old one) and ended up giving it to my cousin.  but lately i have really gotten into them.  i got hooked on ps2 when i started playing with my guys.  so now i am getting my own.  what games and accessories should i buy?  keep in mind i like fighting, killing, and racing but anything else is cool too.
