Cornell is a wonderful school. You wouldn't lose out on a job because you went to Cornell and not Chicago in my opinion... particularly not if yuo don't plan on practicing in Chicago, which I don't think you are. The difference in money is huge, the difference in rankings and prestige isn't, I don't think. If I were in your position, with my fiance and family close by at Cornell etc, I would go there without looking back. I think it's an excellent choice and that you will be happy there.

Abortion=Pro-Choice, but don't think I'd have one myself...
Death Penalty= Anti-Death Penalty, definitely.
War in Iraq= undecided
War in General= no-one likes it, unfortunately it is sometimes necessary. not nearly as often as it is waged...
Gun Control= people should not be allowed to buy guns as easily as  they can
Legalization of Drugs= no.

smoking should be banned everywhere and be taxed much higher.

I only applied to one school: Boalt.
I knew that if I didn't get in I could always stay in the UK and study law here...........

pm me your latest draft! It will be much more interesting than what I need to know for tomorrow's exam! Hope you're doing well, Lgirl.

I'd stay on the waitlists and plan on attending GW with a smile! Awesome law school, great opportunities...

And, of course, Al isn't here to back himself up. Surprising, that. 

Incoming 1Ls / Re: living at home?

We are not lawyers yet, and I think that the definition of a good lawyer has nothing to do with living arrangements. Living at home does not mean one is not independent-minded, or that one is not independent in action. It just depends on the scenario.
I'll be living for a year with my parents in the UK before I start law school. I decided I wanted a year out before attending partly because I knew I would never have such time with them again. My parents are like my friends, and for me it is a privilege to live with them. I've lived alone for four years (on of which was abroad), so it's not like I don't know how to get by on my own.

congratulations! that is the *best* news! I'm in a pretty lousy mood today because I have four Finals in a row starting tomorrow. And that has brought a big smile to my face.

I'm sure the ring is gorgeous. Definitely post us a pic when it's done!

Definitely Berkeley! glad someone said it first!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Boalt

Siehead, I can't help but think that if they've actually ranked people on the waiting list, that sending more materials won't help. I'm under the impression (but correct me if I'm wrong) that most schools don't rank people wait listed but take off the list 'an engineer to replace the one who went to Michigan' or whatever.
Saying that, I think that if you don't send materials that you'll regret it. You have notihng to lose. The worst that can happen is that they won't take what you send in into account. good luck!
