Where should I go next fall? / Re: W&L

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.

Set the tone early and go naked.

Austin Scarlett makes me horny.
:)

he just makes me laugh . . . and make bug-eyed faces, sucking in my cheeks, and flipping my hair.

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.

Acceptances / Re: Wisconsin, Tulane, UC Davis or Hastings?

Davis, Hastings, and Wisconsin are all close, but I would put them in the order that I just did.

If you were to visit the city two months from now, it would look completely different.  When you are just visiting, and the winter greyness is still in full effect, those buildings are definitely gonna look aged and old, especially in most of Oakland.  Otherwise, Pittsburgh has aged (overall) astoundingly well.  In terms of beautiful buildings/architecture, it's no Boston or anything, but it's definitely a city with architectural character, and not in the sense of "character" where one means "ghetto."

See some good pics here

And while 600 for a two-bedroom is pretty darn good, $700 isn't a surprise at all, but more the norm (excepting Shadyside and fancy/schmancy places). 

There are plenty of beautiful women in PittsburgH, too, just don't expect them to have lovely speaking voices.   ;)


Where are you from, Mahoneit?  It would be unfortunate if one visit deterred you from a city adored by almost all who have lived there. 

Hope those pics help a little.

I would strongly prefer to live in Wisconsin than Louisiana, and I live in Louisiana.

1.  Aww, we've missed you Viva!

2.  Are you sure you won't come back to us?

3.  And congrats on Pitt!   ;D

1. Missed ya'll too, actually.  

2. can't.  being responsible about school work, and I lost internet in my apartment.

3. thanks very much.  I remember congratulating you on several southern schools (emory, UGA W&M).  what did you decide on, I forget.

4. I read this  "I'm getting close to 4000 posts" as "i've lost close to 4000 pounds." but I have no idea why.  it reminded me of a "maya angelou" poem that amarain and I enjoyed very much last fall.  

5. Obscure LSD references are my thing as an occasional old-schooler.

6. hey sej!
