Choosing the Right Law School / Re: USC vs Northwestern

Is there any scholarship money involved? Where do you think you could perform the best? It is amazing how much weather can effects someones attitude. I would take USC hands down.

Sent you a PM

I got the same email. I wonder how many ppl they have on the waitlist now. Does anybody know of another seat deposit that may be due anytime soon for other T14 schools?

One of my ex-girlfriends went to play softball at Dartmouth.

Another of my ex-girlfriends is going to Notre Dame Law School.

As for the others, I have no idea.

I got the same email. I almost had a heart attack in class. I am praying to get in there.

As long as the animal can put up with daytime neglect, having a dog (or cat) with you could make law school that much easier to deal with.

I am thinking about taking my Boston Terrier with me to Ithaca to get my mind off of law school stuff every now and then.

Are you engaged to this man? as much as we hate to consider it relationships end. people change, life throws us curveballs etc.. and unless you have both commited to spending the rest of your lives together then selecting a law school based on this relationship might not be the best idea. you have been admitted to some of the best law schools in the country--if that is what you **really** want then you owe it to yourself to take the opportunity (hello--MICHIGAN!) and go. if you rely on this person for emotional support, you can always pick up the telephone. find good deals on plane tickets. ask for vouchers for tickets for birthdays and christmases from friends and family. sometimes the fear or leaving the familiar cheats us out of the possibilities presented by the unfamiliar. you will be nervous and lonely the first few months but you will get through it. and three years from now you will be interviewing at firms that will more than likely not be accessible to you if you choose to go with schools in California--and you MIGHT be doing these interviews as a SINGLE man/woman because the relationship on which you based that law school decision is nothing more than a memory.
This is good advice for the OP.
