Law School Admissions / Re: Dogs (& pets) in LS

>:( I later found out that West Highland terriers are particularly vendictive little shits when you leave them alone too much (it was just 7 - 4 typically). Guess it pays to research breeds first.


I have a Westie as well.  I am very glad I chose this dog, but they definately have that terrier attitude and if you haven't experienced it before it can be frsutrating.  Fortunately, I have a fiancee and a daughter who help keep him occupied.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Stetson?
« on: March 17, 2005, 12:30:06 PM »
I visited there in the middle of January.  The campus looks much better in person than the website.  The houses around the school were nothing to brag about, but it was very quiet and residential.  The library is very new and in great shape.  The gym was a good size and they have a really nice pool on campus.  The cafeteria wasn't anything to brag about either, but the food was good.  They have wireless all over and each desk had its own port and plug.  Beautiful fountains and towers all over.  This is definately one of the nicest campuses I have visited so far.

I just mailed my seat deposit to them today.  The largest factor was the area rather than the school itself.  I was really looking hard at Loyola(NO), but being that close to some awesome beaches is too hard to turn down.  I know I won't have much time off, but if I can sneak away for two hours, I can go to the beach and be back very easily.  The neighborhoods seemed pretty safe and the proximity to Tampa (10-20min) is ideal for my fiancee to find a job.

My biggest impression I took away from my tour was meeting the students.  They were very friendly and laid back.  None of the frantic, competitive stress mongers I was expecting (of course it wasn't finals week either).  I even got a call from one of them the other day offering to answer any questions I might have.

Damn....that is basically what they told me a few weeks ago, except for after the deposit part.  I guess I better send that in and maybe have to eat the cost later.

Sorry to hijack.  ;D

lol...that's ok.  Have any of you checked out Stetson's housing?    The school's houses are supposed to be pretty nice on the inside and the price is very good, but I wasn't impressed with the outside.  I found some nice apartments a few miles away.

Nope....I applied for fall semester.  I am also out of state, and I know they are restricted to only 20% or so from out of state.  So I imagine that the out of staters prolly have a much higher LSAT score

Didn't really want to go here anyways, but I got my "can't act affirmatively" letter.  I would much rather live in Tampa than Gainesville, but UF was a heck of a lot cheaper.
