Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Marquette has a new nickname

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.

Choosing the Right Law School / 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.

Yeah its a good idea to go to a worse school because your college sweetheart dumped you.  ::)

That was really helpful.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: In at NCCU

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.

Thanks for tuning up the old sarcasm meter.

Why would a current 1L care what rank you have?  It doesn't affect their class standing.

I know this is probably ideal, but anyone doing 12 hours of work per day will be seriously burned out, and burned out very quickly.  There comes a point where work becomes counterproductive and you have to just stop because anything else will not be incorporated. If 12 hours of studying does it for you, then you might have better grades than me, but I'm not going to sacrifice that much of my life to law school.  I prefer not to have emotional disorders.
