Current Law Students / Re: List of schools accepting NOLA students

Pitt is accepting 2Ls and 3Ls, but I don't know how many.

Current Law Students / Re: Ladies- where are you suit shopping?

I used to love casual corner, and own about 5 suits from there, but after about 6 mos. to a year, all those suits started to come apart.  The fabric literally started shedding.  Hopefully you'll have better luck with them than I did!

Oh No!  Well, they should get me through the first year of school without a problem, and then I'll have to get some more before I start working.  Thanks for the warning though!

I just bought 2 suits at Casual Corner over the weekend (my Mom made me check it out, because I never thought to go there).  They fit well (pants are actually long enough!) and, to top it off, you get a 15% discount with your Triple A card.  So if you're a member of Triple A, I highly recommend looking there!

Current Law Students / Re: 12" or 15" Powerbook?

I went with the 12" and I love it so far.  I don't mind the small screen.  The 15" was tempting, but I just didn't want to lug it around with me, even though it's not much heavier.  It's just my personal preference, but I'm very happy with the 12" Powerbook.

Definitely contact the school you plan to attend.  My school uses Secureexam, which is compatible with Macs.  That made my day...Now I just have to figure out which Mac to buy!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UM vs. UB

I attended one of the UB open houses last year, and got the impression that they do place well in New York City, but I feared they do not place well in many other cities.  But that is just my impression- no real statistics to go on.  Good luck!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: State residency status

I thought SUNY Albany had a law school as well.

No, SUNY Albany and Albany Law School of Union University are entirely different.  The law school is private.

New York, surprisingly, is relatively easy to gain state residency, but there is only one state law school (Buffalo).

Pennsylvania, at least for the University of Pittsburgh (which is not a state school, just state related), is extremely difficult to get in state tuition, from what I hear.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: This is the cell phone thread

This website should help anyone interested in cell phone coverage in their area:

It has a fairly comprehensive list of dead-zones in cities.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Syracuse

I'm not going to Syracuse, but I've lived in upstate NY all of my life, so feel free to shoot any general questions my way (never lived in Syracuse though- only the Rochester and Albany areas).
