Where should I go next fall? / Re: Looks like it is Wake, baby!

Congrats on choosing Wake.  One of my friends is starting a masters in education program there this summer.  Great school, nice campus.  Let me know if you ever wanna watch football and have some beers, haha. I'll be down the road at UNC.

I would shoot myself in the head at close range if I had to do this.

Kind of a tough decision you have.  You need to look up statistics about W & M's placement in North Carolina.  I imagine that it can't be that bad.  It might not have all the ties that Wake has to the state, but I think if you do a bit of work on your own you would be fine returning to NC after graduation. 

The cost is essentially the same unless you establish VA residency for William and Mary.  Unless it is really easy to do, I doubt you could do it barring a change of heart and deciding that you want to practice and reside in VA, and then you might be able to obtain residency and a 10K discount at William and Mary. 

I don't know much about Wake's career services office or even the school itself.  I've heard varying reports about it being both very helpful and very unhelpful depending on what you are looking for.  I think Wake focuses largely on big firm placement but I know nothing about William and Mary. 

I guess in the end it will come down to where you feel most comfortable geographically for the next three years.  If you really like NC Wake might be a good choice for you.  But if you want a slightly different experience and get better vibes from W & M then go there.  I doubt either way that your career will be affected as they are both pretty highly regarded.

Lastly, I'm a UNC grad.  December '04.  GO HEELS!

Worst name I have ever heard.

UNC is a good school but its reputation is hurt by the large number of in-state students it takes. There is no way it is underrated and it may be slightly overrated.

Here's an interview conducted a couple of years ago with UNC's director of admissions.  According to him, the in-state and out of state stats are virtually the same.  Given this, I would say that UNC (at least the law school) is not hurt by it's large in-state quota.

u guys are hilarious!

I am probably some Boston liberal because I pick on the south right?

Get out your shell! I am from the south, lived most of my life here and have gone to school here (UF, as well as both parents). Having seen much of the outside world, I can tell that there is more intolerance here than most of the rest of the country.

Your inability to joke around about things is an example of that! Look on this forum, you see people going ape whenever someone makes a crack on the south, and how often do people give a sh*t if someone cracks on the north?

get over youself and learn to take a joke and lighten up. It's a big mean world and people may make a crack on a place you have lived, and if you can't accept that... don't ever leave your house (or the south)

People are always "joking" around about things when they get owned in their stupid arguments.  Just admit the asinine nature of your posts in this thread and lets move on.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Wake vs. GMU??

Don't waste your money at Wake.  GMU is clearly the better option here.

It's not overrated if you want to practice in North Carolina or in the few surrounding states.  It's especially not underrated if you're a North Carolina resident because the tuition is pretty low.  However, if you're from another region and you're paying out of state tuition with the expectation that you will be able to leave the south once you're done, it's likely a good idea to go to a school ranked in the top 20 as opposed to UNC. 

Also, living in Chapel Hill is probably better than living anywhere else in the Triangle but the cost is also much higher.  There's not enough housing available to meet the demand and thus the price skyrockets when compared to the nearby communities.

Acceptances / Re: In at NCCU
« on: April 27, 2005, 02:49:28 PM »
Congratulations.  NCCU is a very good value so you will likely not come out with much if any debt.  One of my neighbors went to law school there and he is now operating his own firm.  Good luck to you.
