Notre Dame's building is v. nice from the outside.


You may be right re UGA and Bama, but there are many, many people who go to FLA from Vandy. I know a number of them. And just from attending the Emory admit weekend, there are def people from there planning on going back to FLA. I don't think Vandy/Emory grads will be necessarily competing with barry/stetson grads for the same types of jobs, but my original point stands.

Yeah, you'll always be behind the Vandy, Emory, UGA, and Bama grads coming back home to practice. And possibly even UNC and Wake.

Yes, probably within the next week. I am just waiting to get confirmation that my deposit was received at another school.

Something permanent, hopefully with your family name engraved in either granite, or possibly in goldleaf over oak paneling. A large oil painting of either your father or grandfather hanging in a gilded frame somewhere nearby is ideal.

They won't know your financial situation, and even if they did, it would not help you in the slightest. Admissions are roughly 90% GPA/LSAT.

Either way, employers will definitely know. They will see your transcript, and if it is spread out over 4 years, its pretty obvious. Similarly, if you switch quickly after 1 semester, you'll still have to take summer classes to make up for your light load first semester. They'll see all of this.

Whether they care FT or PT or some combo of the two, I have no clue. GPA and LR would likely be a consideration too.

Yeah, that really is f-ing ridiculous. Just goes to show you that busting your ass for multiple (difficult) majors and finishing college early with a very respectable GPA get you a big stick in the ass from schools looking to game the rankings.

Don't count too much on a schools rep for grade deflation helping. The all-important USNEWS doesn't account for strength of undergrad program, and messed up as it may be, schools are cognizant of this. There is a difference between grade deflation and a sub-3.0 gpa, unless said major is engineering or some other hard science.

GW and Fordham
