Connecticut / Re: No one has anything to say about UConn???
« on: May 02, 2005, 12:11:44 PM »

Also for you out of staters, the Connecticut State website has changed recently from  CTnow will only post entertainment guides, and other fun stuff, while news, and info will be on the new website  Classifieds are listed there.

Great, thanks!  I've poked around and found some of sites online, and similar ones.  Seems like a great deal of vacancies in apartment houses, but, as someone said before, you really have to get a feel for the neighborhood and the setting before deciding to go ahead.  I heard from a current 1L, and she said that people even live as far away as a few exits up and down I-91.  I think that's gutsy; I'd rather roll out of bed and be there.  Plus, UConn doesn't have a great deal of parking spaces to have to contend with on a daily basis.  Shlepping it in from East Haven has to be a stretch.

I was away on business this past week and a half, so I'm hoping to head up this weekend from Long Island, work permitting.

were you on the wait list, or just hadn't heard yet?

I was on the WL for FT Day, but I already had known that I had gotten in the PT Evening Division. 

Have you all looked into housing already?  I can't head up to poke around campus for another 2-3 weekends, but I saw some good spots listed already on

I was originally admitted to the evening and waitlisted for the day. I gave my deposit because I knew that I could transfer to day after the end of the first year without any problems (I wanted out in 3 years). I di not get off the day WL but several of my friends who had also been admitted to the evening did so I know it happens.

Thanks for all the info, L Hand! 

So you started out Evening and then transferred to Day...are you still graduating in 3 years?  That was logistically possible, as you had extra first-year classes to take that 2nd year?  Very interesting...

Hm!  UConn's been my No. 1 school...and now I'm leaning towards committing to the Evening and scrapping my other (scholarshipped, full-time, slightly better-ranked) choices. 

L Hand, how were the Tax/Estates courses?  Tax profs good?

Thanks for the info!  I wonder if that waitlist info is for the school in general, or for Evening Division acceptees who got waitlisted for the Day Division, or a mix of both.

I got in the Evening Div and got waitlisted for the Day Division...  I'm not from CT and applied late (mid-Jan), so I think I have a pretty poor chance of being bumped up, although my numbers should be competitive (163 avg/3.20). 

It's frustrating, b/c UConn is my number one school, and I actually want to practice in CT.  I really don't want to go PT (which is 4 yrs), which means that if I don't get bumped I might end up elsewhere FT.  I did send in my seat deposit to the Evening Division, though; do you think they'll be satisfied with my acceptance there and not bump me up?

Does anyone think they'll bump up Evening folks to the Day program?  Is it a huge disadvantage not to be from CT, do you think?

Lordy Lord Lord...go to UConn!

UConn is a better school, a beautiful school, a school that's more accessible (um...unless you're from upstate, too), and a school that's way way WAY more employable.  I don't know anything about Buffalo Law....but you probably won't have a better time than at UConn!

Go UConn!

...for me! 

So I'll be at the Day Division, FT, come August.



Yeah, I think BC's went along these lines:

"We very much appreciate your applying to BC Law, etc., etc.  We believe that many applicants that are rejected from BC Law go on to successful careers in the law.  We hope that you can be one of them."

They can just eat can they allude that if you don't get accepted to our school, you're probably not going on to have a successful career?  How about 'thanks, good luck' and that's it?  Ugh....

Thanks! That's kind of what I keep hearing...and, yes, who could turn down a school that gives a Mardi Gras break...I am going to visit both in the next couple of weeks so we will see if my decision is easily made after that...

Sounds great!  Good luck, whatever the decision turns out to be!
