Choosing the Right Law School / Re: So F***ing confused! HELP!

The one thing I've heard about Wisconsin (I'm on hold there at the moment) is that you'll have a real problem getting out of the area even though it is a really good school.  Also Wisconsin has some sort of law where all law school graduates automatically become lawyers and don't have to take the bar.  So if you went to another state you'd have the fun task of preparing for the bar and even though its definitely a great education it's hard to say if they would really prepare you for the test specifically (I could be wrong in this though).

I wouldn't go to Santa Clara, the campus itself is beautiful, but San Jose is not and it's really isn't in the same class as your other acceptances.  I got rejected by Hastings and it was my first choice too, but I've heard that it's insanely competitive and one person I knew called it a meat grinder, so being in San Fran may not make up for it.  It's also in a really dangerous part of town.

I'm trying to figure out what I think of American myself so I can't help you on that one.  Except apparently the commute there sucks.

I don't think you can call rank number 56 "pretty high ranked." 

Hey it's pretty high ranked for some of us.  Good for you, you got into GW, but turn down the snobbery a notch.

I got 8500 with a 163 straight out of undergrad. So WE was not my big selling point and neither was my LSAT score for that matter. So the 165 theory doesn't really hold. I have no idea what it could be.

I got 8500 2 years out of school, 162 LSAT, and applied regular, however they did ask me to apply and all that.

Hopefully I'll see you guys there.   ;)

Great! Congrats, a little close to the date, we should get some people together for an LSD visiting party for the accepted students day.

Hey I'm going too!

What is the general opinion on American Law School?  Reputation/job wise and also general student life.  I know it's in GW and Georgetown's shadow even though it's a pretty high ranked school.

I was wondering if anyone is planning on going to the Admitted Students day on April 1st at American?  If I want to visit, is it probably better to go that day versus a random day?

I'm going, actually planning a really insane trip to see a couple of law schools on the east coast.  Flying in at 6:20 the morning of, hopefully I'll make it and look half alive.  I think it will be better, because otherwise your really just looking around the campus and not learning about the school

I just want to be in LA so bad it hurts.

Out of curiosity... why? :)

Yeah I'd being running to Loyola if it was anywhere else in CA, but LA and especially downtown LA.  I keep trying to tell myself there are nice parts of LA.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Northeastern versus Suffolk

Well I live 4 blocks from NE, and I use to work one building down from Suffolk.  They are 2 completely different schools.  I know that Suffolk is ranked 4th tier, but it is not a third tier toilet by any means.  On the other hand, NE is a reallllly great school, in a nice area, with nice new buildings.  Suffolk is smack dab in the middle of the city, right next to the common.  NE is further out, pretty much on the edge of Boston in fact.  The housing is cheaper out by NE, but you have to be careful about where because there is one bad area called "mission hill." 
This post is kinda all over the place, sorry.  If you have any specific questions about the area or building ask away.

Hey what else do you know about NE?  What the students are like, how bad the male/female ratio really is, the job prospects in and out of Boston?  Some people seem to adore NE, while others say its not really competitive job wise.  I like the whole program and philosophy of the school, but I have gotten into better ranked schools (Loyola and American) so I'm having trouble making a decision.  Thanks!

I don't know (aren't I a big help).  I'm also considering GW and have heard everything under the sun about it, good and a lot of bad.  Sometimes I feel like GW gets unfairly compared to Georgetown and is a pretty good school.  I don't know though, some people seem to think its not really a player job wise, while others say you can get into the best firms in NYC.  So who knows, I'd love to know how it stacks up to.
