Choosing the Right Law School / Re: I'm a DUMBA&%!!!!!!!

that sucks, but people on this board take scholarships for granted. I am graduating with my masters degree this june and am heading into law school with 96,000 dollcars in debt.  I was offered 1500 dollars of need based financial aid at the one school I am considering.  gee thanks that really helps. I totally would take 50% tuition and be psyched and happy..not hit a wall.  Not trying to be mean but look on the bright side of things.  You could have gotten nothing.

hmm i'm sorry.  well don't give up hope.  At least you weren't rejected. Yeah syracuse was my number one choice of the reality schools (although i am on the waitlist at some dream schools).  good luck!!  I am sorry. I know how frustrating it is..  trust me i was calling them every couple of weeks and it was nuts cause they were one of the last ones. 

hey i was in the same boat. I called yesterday frustrated and they told me I was just accepted on monday and that i should be getting the packet soon.  I was going nuts so i am glad they finally told me over the phone.  Not that that helps you guys.. .but mayb eyou can just keep calling??? I don't know. i'm sorry.  it does suck that they do this. I am probalby going to go there.  AT least there are two admitted student days left (april 23 and 29) so i think they shoudl be sending out alot of decisions before then.

Choosing the Right Law School / Syracuse vs. Penn State-Dickinson

hi. So i sent in my deposit last week to PSDickinson. But i found out today I got into Syracuse.  I am on the waitlist at a few places that are my dream schools, but anyone have any suggestions about which dickinson vs. syracuse. I am worried about the type of employment gained from syracuse.  Just any thoughts would be helpful :)  They're both 2nd tier now so I guess that's good. I have always loved the orangeman mascot tho..hehehe I am visiting syracasue on april 29th, but until then share your thoughts.

OH ok.  (about the carol thing).  See I had two tour guides and they both kinda bickered about how the caroll thing works so who knows. I guess we'll see, but i mean it's not really a big deal. Just kinda found it funny they think i'ts all special and i find it kinda stressful :) But hey that's me i guess!!

Yes. the current students were awesome. So that's kinda what i'm going by. i guess I was suprrised because when i went to visit Penn (i was eventually rejected) when I was applying the prospective students were so nice and penn state dickinson has a reputatoin for being nice so i assumed theyh'd be even nicer. who knows tho. 

as far as the construction goes I wish ii could be more helpful. apparently they will break ground sometime next year.  I mean it's cool if we get to take use of hte new building eventually.. i just wonder when it will be done. they seemed scared to say.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: miami it today

well now it looks as if we're on a few waitlists together.  i'm sorry. I feel your pain. trust me. good luck! I hope we get off some of them.

hey. i posted some comments on it. I also wrote you back in a personal message. feel free to write me if you have questions.

sorry guys! i know i promised this, but i couldn't get LSD to load all day for some reason and i got back late last night.

Anyway, I don't have much to report that's different from other posters comments before.  I actualy don't mind the small town. I think the campus of Dickinson College is really pretty.  They are changing the grading system so that there will be letters form now on and a B curve which the students said would help.  YOu need to be in the top7.5% of the class to be on law review. I loved all the professors I met. There is an open door policy of you can come by anytime between 9-5 which i thought was great. I am actually a little worried about those carol things in the library where you have to line up to reserve one at the crack of dawn. It's a neat idea and i love how you can trust people and leave yoru stuff there, but seems like a pain.  We had a mock class which was interesitng.  The dean didn't give a speech or anyting tho which i found kinda odd.  hmm.. if there's any particular questions please ask cause i don't really know what to say. Overall I was happy with the school. I do have one bad thing to say.  I hope I don't insult anyone if you were there I don't mean to I probably didn't meet you.. however while the current students were really friendly and awesome and willing to tell it like ti is...I must have met more rude prospective students than in all my other law school visits combined. I mean I woudl try to be friendly and say hi and these people would not start a convo. It made me worried about forming study groups because no one was friendly.  I didn't think that psu dickinson had that rep. I probably will be attending there despite that cause i was really impressed with their facilities and stuff.  I know some people's parents were really worried about all the construction that is going to be going on while we're in class. I don't think that's that big of a deal tho.  Ok. so ask me if you have a specific question.

hmm. I applied for FT. complete since dec. I didn't get that email.  haven't heard a peep from them.  interesting.
