Talk to successful women, or anyone who'se done family/marriage therapy/counseling.  A lot of guys have problems with not being the breadwinner.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Are Teir 4 schools hard?

It doesn't matter.. ability to get into a higher school is a euphemism for LSAT/GPA.

A study showed that only about 15% of LS success (grades) can be accounted for by LSAT/GPA.  It was cited in the 2004 bcguide (PDF), if you want to look it up.  The other 85% is probably due to hard work, and good LS exam writing ability (not tested by LSAT or UGPA).

So, it's irrational to assume that it would be easier to be at the top of your class at a worse school.  In fact it's probably harder because there is more pressure for EVERYONE to work hard, because if they don't finish at the top, they sleep in the park.

It's usually the (insecure) men that have a problem with those unbalanced relationships.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: BU v BC v GW

What scared me away?  Basically that the students at the schools are very competitive, and that employment prospects outside the top of the class suck.

And.. I guess you can take the surveys with a grain of salt.. but it's like interviewing students and graduates about employment prospects, etc... very valuable knowledge, I think.

I got scared away from BC and BU by the surveys on vault.com...

I really suggest that you buy the vault law school buzz book.

I have the BU and GW surveys archived if you want them, but you will need firefox and the MAF plugin to view them.

Email me if you want them: jurisdebt@gmail.com

Congrats!!

Would you still go there over W&M?

47
arbitrary numbers:

Instead of the average person applying to 7 schools, they applied to 10.  So even though there are fewer applicants, the # of apps per person went up more than enough to compensate.

48
It will be higher this year, because while # of apps are up, # of applicants are down.  Remember to remind them once per month that you're still interested.

49
Can you get into a better school?  Does your state have reciprocity with washington or wisconsin?  Or even oregon? 

I think those would be good deals.  Also, hey, you never know, you may get offered scholarships from some private schools based on your #s

50
Can you get in-state tuition at any of the public schools in those states?
