Cool. Yea DePaul threw some serious money around this cycle.
Yeah they did. Have you decided on Loyola or Kent yet?

Well, with the offer DePaul have given me.. I would be hard pressed not to accept it. Although if I hear positive news from Kent, I would reconsider. Chicago is definately where I will end up and yes, Chicago is not that bad at all. I am really excited about these upcomming years.
Yea I thought I'd end up there. Got in and planned to go, had an apt picked out. Then I sat back and thought about it. If I go to IU, then I would want to work in Chicago afterwards. Going to Loyola (or Kent) in Chicago would serve me better. I love IU. I love Bloomington. But I also do not want to relive my undergraduate days for 3 years. For a weekend here or there? Sure. But not for 3 years. So I decided against heading back to IU for school.
Indeed, I would hope anyone who has ever gone to IU has loved it. You are right about not wanting to relive your undergraduate years while attending law school. A change in setting will definately help me focus more on my studies.
P.S. I will definately miss the view on campus during the warm months however. I am sure you know what I mean.
Happy hour at Kilroy's kicked off the week for me. It was packed.
Ilsox, were you considering attending IU for law school at all?? I didn't even respond to the application waver they sent because, while Bloomington is a great college town, I couldn't see myself spending 7 years of my life here. Four years was enough for me. The law building is a great place though... definately top notch facilities.
As far as parties developing "people skills", I have to disagree. College students are not "people".
College students are not people?? What are they, newts??? Amphibians?? That stuff that solidifies in the cupholders of cars??
I know you didn't mean for that statement to be taken literally, but come on. College students are, in fact people, and it is in high school and college where you develope your personality most and form "people skills."
P.S. I also plan on developing my people skills at Little 5 this weekend... best weekend in college.
Perhaps I should have posted this with my initial post to show why I even started this thread.
I started a thread entitled "Attending DePaul students." This thread, as you can tell from the title, was meant to talk with some of my future classmates and does not hint at any malice or ill-will whatsoever. Here was one reply to the thread.
Actusreus: "Eh, I've nothing to say except that DePaul is a third tier toilet with a remarkably good reputation. It must be because intellectually mediocre, but powerful, people went to DePaul and have created a network of alumnis, case in point, Richard M. Daley, the current mayor of Chicago working next door to DePaul, not to mention his daddy, of course, Richard J. Daley!"
As you can probably guess, many people were disturbed with this post and my thread was the result.
and as for me stating my size... you must understand that it was only a reference to the "haven" anonymous message boards provide. I was merely trying to make the point that half the people who use the phrase would not say it to someone in person, whether or not that individual is of large stature.
You shouldn't assume that anyone who attends a better school then a t3 spent their college career in the library and is devoid of all social skill. I spent almost all of my 5 years of college f-ing around and such and graduated with a horrendus gpa (way below 3.0). I then spent the first term of my 5th year in the library studying really hard for the lsats. Now im going to a law school in the top of t2.
Several people seemed to have missed the group I was referring to with my opening post. The people I have selected as having little or no social skills are those who use the phrase "third tier toilets" and NO ONE ELSE. It is obvious from their language that they lack such skills. No one who knew how to treat another human being would degrade them based on where they went to law school. Those students who have stellar GPA's and refrain from using such language obviously DO HAVE people skills and are not the target of this post.
Congrats on Penn State Kilroy. I also consider anyone who takes the initiative to attend and succeed in law school, no matter which school it is, as a winner. I look forward to next year... most likely going to attend DePaul but will strongly consider Kent if accepted... and look forward to interacting with everyone I meet.
