Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: American Accepted Students day?
« on: March 04, 2005, 12:29:55 AM »
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.

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.

I applied to Loyola around Thanksgiving and only just heard last Saturday, so yours may be coming soon.  My names is at the end of the alphabet and I've been hearing from a lot of schools later than everyone else, but luckily that doesn't seemed to have affect my acceptances or scholarship offers.  So don't give up hope yet.

Allison - Did you get scholarship info from Loyola?

Nope, but for Loyola my GPA and LSAT are pretty average so I'm no expecting much.

Hey I'm on hold too,  wow seems to be a trend here.  April 15th is way to late two out of three of my top choices I have to make a decision by then.  Oh well, I'm not that disappointed hate the cold.

Hey we're making a similiar decision.  From what I've heard (and I'm no expert) Northeastern has great job prospects in Boston, but not a lot beyond.  However, since it has the co op program, and you can and most likely will go all over the country, your chances of getting a job that way are very good.  Something like 40% of the graduates do, so if you have a specific area in mind and a little initiative you most likely could get a job where you wanted.  As far as American, I've heard it's pretty much NYC and Washington DC, but there seems to be a ton of disagreement about that and I heard their career services suck, so that doesn't really help things either.

Hey I just got into GW.  Does anyone know how good the school itself is? Really competitive, living in DC, professors, etc...  My current top three are GW, Loyola LA and Northeastern and I'm having a real problem figuring out what to do.
