Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Where should I go?
« on: April 02, 2005, 10:48:50 AM »
FWIW, when I got my LSAT score back, and it was over 10 points below my average practice score, I applied to a bunch more schools. I think I doubled the original number.

 Let's assume the OP applied to around 10-12 schools in the first place, with a certain score expected. It is not surprising that s/he might apply to 10-12 more upon learning the actual LSAT score.  With an entirely new and significantly different range in mind, doubling the amount of schools applied to makes perfect sense.  So, none of us would gasp about 10-12 schools, right?  That's roughly the recommended amount.  What makes 15 schools so much different/worse?

I've heard New Orleans smells.

This is very true.  Moreso than other cities its size or larger, actually.


Are you huffing paint or something?

Not anymore.  I have lived in both cities, though.  New Orleans is a fascinating place to visit.  There are lots of interesting things here.  As far as things concerned with lifestyle, though, there is very little to offer here beyond what I mentioned (drinking, partying).  The culture is for tourists.  Unless you mean the culture of "I ain't doin' shitt."  


3. If you want European culture, Pittsburgh has it a lot more than New Orleans.  NOLA has southern culture mixed with party culture.  The history here consists in a city being built on one of the most historically appalling periods.


Please, for the love of god dont let this person have offspring...

I probably won't.  Have you ever consider backing up comments like this with something substantive, though?  Or do you just like making entirely unfunny jokes. (I would claim that this attempted joke [assuming it wasn't an actual plea, in which case it was just stupid] wasn't funny even were it not directed at me.)

well, different strokes for different folks, but I still maintain that just on name alone, people are going to recognize the "Tulane Law" name way the hell faster than "Pitt Law." I persoanlly find that ew Orleans has a history, has character, and the city itself just reminds me of being in Europe.  Plus I'd rather be wearing shorts in January than freezing my ass off in PA and smelling the fumes from the steel mills.  But, respectfully, to each his own...

1. Pittsburgh doesn't have steel mills anymore.  Most closed down close to thirty years ago.

2. New Orleans summers are precisely 149X less bearable than Pittsburgh winters.

3. If you want European culture, Pittsburgh has it a lot more than New Orleans.  NOLA has southern culture mixed with party culture.  The history here consists in a city being built on one of the most historically appalling periods.

4. I agree, to each his/her own.  But to most/anyone not particularly concerned with partying hardcore in a roach-filled craphole . . . Pittsburgh.

5. Actually, maintain your preference for NOLA and Tulane and NYC.  It will help those who share the saner view in the end.

I chose Pitt, but I think you know this. Robotspinoza

Ilsox,

I got the WL and politely removed myself from it immediately.  I would love to go there, but it isn't right for me in the end.  Best of luck, though!



Thanks and good luck to whichever school you choose!

I was emailed.  I know that isn't the news you wanted, but not everyone was emailed first.  Also, they sent out a bunch of erroneous emails that suggested acceptance prior to getting it.  FWIW, my email said "congratulations from pitt law" in the title.  I received my letter a few days later. 

I think I just sent someone to their email to hit "refresh" over and over again.

I wasnt under the impression from his post that he did not like Pittsburgh or was deterred from going to Pitt because of his visit.

You are right though- if there is one thing to say about Pittsburgh it is that most everyone who lives here LOVES Pittsburgh... and some cannot even imagine leaving their humble town!

VivaLaMuerte, are you living in Pittsburgh right now? UG? working?

nah, I just grew up in the region, and am returning for law school. 

Yeah, the dreariness can take its toll, but I think it would be much more enjoyable to have a job with lots of work when going outside is somewhat painful, rather than a year-round festival of outdoor activities that you can't enjoy.  or that's what I believe this afternoon anyway.

I didn't mean for my comments to seem combative, btw.  I just know the impression that mahoneit displayed rather well, and I thought I could explain it away a bit.

It's nice to see so much love for pittsburgh.  for those of us going to law school there, though, we should shut up: people from top schools will want to live there and steal our jobs!*

*Just kidding. Pittsburgh firms are rather loyal to the locals.
