I went and visited. White Plains is a nice little city, expensive though. Although, the school does offer on campus housing, which is definately a plus.

After being waitlisted at Suffolk and deciding I really want to be in Boston, I've chosed NELS. I'd love to hear anything from current students. How does it compare to other schools in the city? What are the job prospects like? Where do students live? Any info would be great.

good idea especially if the LS in question is good LS. I am of the opinion that applying to the LS where you got your undergrad degree gives you a slight advantage in the admission process.
I disagree, at least in my state, CT, going to Uconn as in undergrad is a disadvantage when applying to law school. This may have something to do with the fact that they are the only public university that makes a profit every year and the highest paid state employee is the men's basketball coach.

Relationships are hard, I'm glad I'll have school to concentrate on for awhile. I think you guys are right, if you really love someone then you stick by them and what they want for themselves. By bf is just being a jerk, I hope he comes around a little so I at least can spend some time with him before I leave. We'll see.

Well, at least most of you guys are dating people who understand your need to pursue your dreams and are supportive of that. My guy wants me to go, but at the same time is angry at me for leaving him. I turned down his offer to move in with him and pursue a law degree locally. Its tough because we do love each other, it definately helps hearing your stories though.

I've decided to go to school in Boston, which means leaving my boyfriend behind in CT. We have been together for 5 years, but lately its been so on again off again, that I decided I wasn't going to hold back on my dreams for a relationship that hasn't felt very secure lately. Even though Boston is only 1.5 hours away from where my boyfriend lives in CT, he has doubts that the relationship will survive the distance. He is a real estate agent and is busy on the weekends and obviously I will be busy during the week. The thing is we both love each so much, its gonna be tough for us to part. I was just wondering if anyone else was going though a similiar situation.
I wish you luck, if that were you really want to be. Just keep in mind that is ridiculously expensive, not to even mention living expenses in Manhatten. You will be shocked coming from Mississippi. Also, I would go for a visit if you can. People have been posting that the building is horrible even though its in a decent nieghborhood. Good luck!

They were the first school I heard from, acceptance w/$$$. I went to the admitted students day and wasn't crazy about the school so I declined there. That should help you out some!
