Erapitt is one that comes to mind, and I believe Monkey turned them down too.

Good luck, Abe!   :)

I am avoiding the field because I believe that the transactional end is quite boring (I work in R and D and seeing our lawyers proof and file is very sad), and I am not that interested in litigation (but he absolutely loved it).  I just have other interests, that is all.

Where in the north are you from, karita?  Also, just curious, what other areas of law are you considering?

Im deciding between Emory, UGA and Tulane w/$$. Eventually I'd like to do in-house for a dow or dupont but that usually requires experience. What are your other choices besides catholic? Where did you go undergrad?

I graduated from MIT in 2002 and have been working for a membrane manufacturer since then.  (Part of the reason I chose ChemE was to be able to get a job in science/engineering with my B.S. and then decide what to do about higher degrees once I'd gained some experience.)  Are you in Georgia now (I'm guessing from your school list)?

For other choices besides Catholic, I would have to apply again next year.  It's a long story, but after I turned in two applications I ended up deciding NOT to go to law school, mainly for family reasons.  But I didn't withdraw my applications because I thought that would really be a waste, I might as well find out who (of the two) would accept me.  GULC dinged me -- 3.3 / 164, should have taken a prep course probably.  Anyway, early this month Catholic sent me a scholarship offer that my husband and I felt I couldn't refuse.  And since I was only looking at DC schools (and UMd), can't take on a lot of debt, and the community at Catholic really appeals to me, I think (hope) I'll be very happy there.

Whew!  Sorry to run on.

Matokah -- Thanks for the info.  All I knew about it was there would be something in the morning and something in the afternoon (I thought it was the same thing) but they hadn't said when it was going to start.  Since I haven't been on a formal tour or sat in on a class yet, I definitely want to go!

I'm guessing (based on last year's calendar) that classes start on August 22, so orientation is probably during the week before.  There's also apparently a graduate student orientation during the weekend after our first week of classes.

I'm a ChemE going to law school as well.   :)  I'll probably do patent law but plan to get a well-rounded legal education in case I want to change my mind.  I'll be attending Catholic.  How about you?

I got a letter from Catholic today summarizing my financial aid...

Abevigoda -- Maybe you should give them a call ASAP to let them know how much you want to attend (esp. with Suffolk's offer).  Won't they probably be swamped on admit day?

What about using the offer as leverage with Catholic's financial aid office?  Several people have posted here about turning down scholarships from Catholic, so you would think funds are available. 

That's what she meant!  ::)

I wish they would hurry up and decide what the program's going to be on the 1st so I can figure out what to do about child care.  And, I'm impatient.  In a way, I'm ready for school, already, almost...

There is another person driving from Chicago, JManning, who has been posting on the Students board.  I live in Maryland so I won't have far to drive.  Hope to see you there.   :)

It sounds like Case Western is the best choice of the three for you, since they have a strong program in a field you want to study and they offered you the most money.  Go for it!
