Wait List / Re: northeastern
« on: May 17, 2005, 10:24:45 PM »
I loved northeastern too, but from what I hear they are stingy with the waitlist acceptances.  Do you have a backup? I'll attend Duquense if NU doesn't work out.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Clubbers vs. Bar Rats

Bars play better music. And when you go often enough, everyone is your friend, including the bartenders who hook you up with free drinks.  What more could you ask for?

One thing I'm looking forward to about law school is being active again by walking everywhere.  Is Duquesne and the surrounding area walkable?  Where is a nice, safe place to live that's within walking distace to the school, if anywhere (don't mind cabbing it to the bars - less chances of tripping over your own feet that way)?

PS what does "pm me" mean, I'm seeing that phrase all over these boards

I posted this on another Syracuse thread that brought up crime, Wegmans, and Carousel Mall:

I went to SU undergrad and never really felt safe because it's in a dangerous area.  Don't walk around alone at night if you can help it.  However the crime shouldn't stop you from attending and enjoying your time up there.  No one I know (take that as you will) has been a victim of serious harm and anyways most law students live far enough from campus in Nob Hill that they're away from the more serious crime.

The downtown area grew on me throughout the years and my friends and I found plenty of cool places for dinner and drinks.  I miss it.  The shopping is ok at best - don't expect much.  You might feel landlocked but there's plenty of nature stuff to do in central NY.  Oh, and the local Wegmans is 24 hours.  Hope this info answers some of your concerns.

Congrats, it's about time you heard from someone over there. I'm probably going and I'm looking forward to visiting the area.  I hope it's fun in Pittsburgh because I'll suffocate without bars. 

Wait, no, scratch that.  I mean I'm looking forward to living in an affordable area close to campus so I can study.  Yes.

I use Word Perfect on my computer (don't ask).  What appear as bullets on my word processing program show up as dollar signs with Microsoft Office.  Lucky for me I found this out after I sent out all my apps.  I wasn't happy about that at the time... but now.... well it is funny.

Wait List / priority waitlists
« on: April 29, 2005, 01:19:11 AM »
Do all law schools have a priority waitlist... and if so what is the point. Northeastern and St. John's placed my application on their waitlists.  I'm not really feeling the whole St. John's thing, but I'd love to do public interest law at Northeastern.  What's the point of waiting around and sending so much $$$ to Duquesne if these schools have priority lists that I'm not on... in other words, are they just screwing me around?

Has anyone heard about money from Duquesne?
