Pittsburgh / Re: Golf in August

I'm no golfer...but I'll meet you guys for drinks afterwards!

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!

Pittsburgh / Re: Going to Pitt? Me too...
« on: April 21, 2005, 07:07:11 AM »
Hi everyone!  I finally made my decision to attend Pitt Law, and thought it was time to introduce myself to my new classmates.  My name is Jaime and I graduated from Skidmore College last May.  I grew up in Rochester, NY, and I am very anxious to move out of upstate NY (although I do love it up here).  I spent last summer interning with the NYS Department of Economic Development, and have worked as a Prospect Research Analyst at a local college since September.  My two passions are books and animals (dogs and horses mostly) and I'm a little bit worried about how I will adapt to not riding horses on a daily basis this fall.  I guess I'll be so busy that I won't have to think about it though!

Congrats to everyone on their decisions to attend Pitt, and I look forward to meeting all of you soon!

State University of New York / Re: SUNY Fall '05

From what I could gather at the accepted candidates day, it doesn't seem like it is too hard to find a job in NYC.  There are a number of alums working in NYC and they seem to have created a very supportive network that is willing to help UB students get in the door for interviews.

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
« on: July 13, 2005, 08:27:38 AM »
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).

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: American Waiting List
« on: July 13, 2005, 08:23:59 AM »
I'm at work, so I'm not sure when the letter was dated.  I was also on vacation for the last two weeks of it could have come any time over those 2 weeks.  And I think I threw it out, so I can't look it up for you  :-\  Sorry about that.

No, I did not respond.  I was being a brat and didn't want to waste my own envelope and stamp to tell them that I don't want to be on their wait list (this was my personal boycott to them, since it took them so friggin long to give me any kind of response on my application). 

I was 159/3.67

Sorry it took me a few days to respond-I forgot to read the board!

Hope this helps you a bit, and good luck with getting into American.
