Acceptances / Re: In at Washington and Lee

Actually from that post, W&L sounds like a great place.  I love how it is expected that conservative people will benifit by the fact that most Law Schools are liberal, but put a liberal in a conservative setting and they're begging for mercy.  Now you see what us poor conservative must deal with in acadameia.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Which school would you choose?

which state do you live in, is there a good state school there?  Consider a school that you are in the 75th percentile or better, and you may find a scholorship.  Example - Michigan State is private, they just got the Big 10 name so they will improve in the rankings, also they want to increase their numbers so they throw lots of money toward candidates above 158, especially ones in the 160's.  There are others in similar situations.  Penn St., which is on your LSN list is private and might throw you a scholorship, plus they have a loan repayment program for public interest.

Have you considered looking at some low T1/high T2 private schools? Trying to get into a good state school (i.e. Minnesota, Illinois, UNC etc.) from out-of-state is as hard if not harder than getting into a national/super-regional private school.

this is a very good point! As i was eluding to in the 75% from NC comment.

That's good, but don't let someone else pick your school, they are all good schools and all have there strong points, after getting acceptances go talk to the schools and people who go there - then go with your gut, not USNWR since these schools are all competitive with one another, and not one is clearly superior.  If it were me, I could never go to Ohio State having grown up in Michigan, and UNC and Tennessee would be my top choices.

Must hijack the thread just for a minute...

Hey Brave!

Gotta ask... as someone who came of the waitlist, how'd your first batch of ls finals go?!

Congrats on being done!

I'm sure he has no idea, I know at my school we are told grades will be posted in approxomately 4 weeks.  Also, just going by what most of the people I ahve talked to have said (and myself included) it is hard to say exactly how you did, its not like undergrad where you pretty much know you got an A or maybe an A-/B+, it is more like "I think I got most of the issues, but then again maybe not, and in Civ Pro the essays weren't to terrible but the MC sucked, while in Contracts the MC wasn't killer, but the essays took me the entire time and I still wasn't quite done."

No offense, but you will have a hard time getting into any of these schools.  UNC admitts 75% from NC so they are even more of a reach.  They are all good schools, I would go to the one I liked the best, that offers the best suited programs for my needs and is in a location I like.

some decisions will be as late as March and April - have a nice wait. 

I sure am glad I never have to go through the crap you guys are going through now.  Waiting and wondering was far more stressful than actual law school.

there are so many sources that you can find this information, and judging by your lack of knowledge in knowing where the school is and lack of resourcefulness in figuring out where it is - you are probably not Northwestern material.

I am a 1L, my orientation (as are most) was required, but it is still possible to skip it.  It will depend on the school, when will you be registering, etc.  Just tell them that you cannot be there day X or X and Y and they will do whatever is necessary to get you up to speed.  25% of my orientation was worthless, 25% helpful, and 50% was stuff I needed to do but could have done at another time (its just easier if everyone does it at once).  I'm sure you can make the wedding, most orientations end Friday or during the week sometime, maybe you will miss the rehersal, but that's not the end of the world.  As far as meeting people goes you will have plenty of time for that, then you'll be stuck in class everyday with some of them, you can't not meet people.  I wouldn't want to miss the whole orientation though, if you don't have to, another words don't skip all of orientation just to hang out, go to a baculorete party, rehersal dinner, get your hair and nails done togather, and go to a spa.
