Choosing the Right Law School / Re: case western scholarships
« on: March 02, 2005, 10:57:40 AM »
If Emory, UGA and Case would all cost the same, I would choose Emory, then UGA.  Simply because of their name recognition.  However, I don't think Case is that far off.  I work for a firm now with 27 attorneys, and they all think Case is a great school.  I think the key is Case's ability to get you a "good" job right after graduation.  Three years after you graduate, it won't matter where you went, anyway.

I'm just waiting to hear about scholarships, because I'm not a big fan of debt.  There's something to be said about having the flexibility of being $50,000 in debt as opposed to $150,000 when you graduate.  That's just my 2 cents.

I visited case a little over a month ago, and I started to get a feel for their reputation.  It seems to me that their career planning office does an outstanding job.  They just set up annual interview programs in a bunch of major cities (I think LA, NYC, DC, Chicago).  Their starting salaries seem to be very high (if their #'s are true), and the geographic distribution of their graduates seems to be good. 

The only downside of the visit:  it seemed like a lot of people attend Case because it's a safety school, and they didn't get accepted to their first choice.  I'm not real sure why more people don't regard it more highly.  Perhaps because of their low lsat/gpa numbers.

However, it appears that they place graduates in a number of differnt positions, at good salaries, and I LOVED the campus and Cleveland.
... now if they would just tell me I'm accepted...

I'm having "Hail to the Victors" played at my wedding by the Michigan Marching Band.  I go to Penn State.  Not just the best 'fight' song, but the best song. ever.

My other top choice is Pitt.  My fiancee lives there, and has a good job there. 

I also applied to Washington in St. Louis, Cornell, Emory, Georgia, St. Louis U, Temple, & Akron.

Still waiting to hear from Case, Washu and Cornell.

Has anyone heard about financial aid (scholarships) from Case Western?  They're one of my top 2 choices, and the decision will be mostly financial.  They lost my freaking application about 2 weeks ago, and I'm wondering how bad that's gonna be.  (It's since been found)

So have you heard?  How much did you get? ???
