Office Space is full of jewels... but
"What is your major malfunction Private Pile" "I thought steers and queers where the only things that came out of Texas" "This is my rifle, this is my gun, this one's for fighting, this one's for fun" - Full Metal Jacket - pretty much everything the drill instructor says is fu*king amazing!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Last Minute Acceptances...

Don't count on getting pulled off the Dickinson waitlist because you are a PSU grad. In the grand scheme of things, that might break a tie if everything else in your file is exactly identical to someone else. PSU doesn't give "legacy" points for law school admissions. The adcom is concerned about scores this year. They climbed 8 places in the rankings this year and they want that to keep on going. They aren't going to stop until they hit the first teir and the adcom and administration are going to make sure of this.

I would throw your dream of going to Dickinson in the trash, decide on a school that you are already accepted to, and try to transfer after your first year.

Plus, Dickinson is already at their class size. So unless someone withdraws or doesn't make the second deposit, the adcom will most likely reject most people from the waitlist.

I just recently withdrew from PSU, after I withdrew they still sent me a 2nd deposit notice and more fin-aid info.  My spot will afford one lucky PSU hopefull to slide in. 

P.S. - If you want to thank me, send money!

Maybe it has something with the number of grads from Toledo that go out of state.  Many going to Toledo are from Michigan, I couldn't get into Michigan, so Toledo was my best bet, they give many Southeastern Michiganders in-state tuition.  I think Toledo is more cost effective than Michigan State and in a better area than Wayne State.  Toledo places well in SE MI and is therefore a more attractive optin for many.  They are no doubt regional, but at the admitted students day the dean stressed the cooperation among alumni in out of state placement.  I was also sent a letter from a current student that adressed the issue and how she is going to Phoenix.  Toledo does not have enough jobs for all Toledo grads, so many do leave the area and perhaps they do have slighly more alumni working other places.  They are still regional and I think your opportunities would be similar at both schools.  Only difference, maybe Toledo would work harder to help you get a job out of the region.  Bottom line is, at either school grades and networking will play the largest part in your opportunities to leave the area, which is Northwest Ohio and Southeast MI.

Taco, you're staying in Bloomington?  You must really like it there.  Do you plan on working in the area as well?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: car at michigan?

Living in Michigan without a car is like trying to win an as$ kicking contest with one leg, it can be done, but who'd want to try. 

Seriously with your situation it might be possible, but when it comes time for summer jobs you may have trouble.

Another thing, if I based picking a school on sports, I would go to a Canadian School, and I can't stand Canada.
Nah, you would have gone to MSU in the slim hope that Michigan tries to break the record and has the world's first hockey game with more than 100,000 spectators in The Cold War II.

Yeah, nothing like watching a hockey game from the nose bleed seats in the football stadium.  Anyone have an extra pair of binoculars?  D@MN I miss hockey!

no offense meant to anyone but - (F) NASCAR!   >:(
