Law School Admissions / Re: Whats the deal with Vegas?
« on: January 14, 2006, 10:39:09 AM »
I think it's just because its a public school, much like North Carolina and Tennessee, and it's mandated that they take that many in-staters.

I also applied to UNLV, just recently, because their local economy is out of control, real estate is booming, and 80,000 people a YEAR are moving to Las Vegas. Talk about job security.

Plus, it will support my drinking and gambling problem through Law School.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Ann Arbor vs DC

There is a HUGE project going on to rebuild and revitalize Detroit, in addition to local chapters of the aforementioned nonprofits. I think there is a website called "rebuilddetroit.com" or "visitdetroit.com" that you can get more information from. I didnt try those, but you could google those keywords and Im sure you will come up with something.

BUT--something to consider: Ann Arbor is easily an hour away from Detroit, meaning that your 10 hours per week could turn into 30 with the drive each way. Just a thought.

It really depends on what you are looking to do. There are tons of opportunities through the undergrad program to volunteer; there are local chapters of, for example, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, March of Dimes, etc. but if you are looking for a politically motivated group there isn't much besides College Republicans/Democrats.

I don't think volunteering a few hours per week constitutes a rule break, but I see why it is advised against. Its to my understanding that 2Ls/3Ls end up doing alot of volunteering during second and third years.

So in your opinions, as an incoming 1L, which campus would have the most advantages? It seems Carlisle is favorable...can you tell us anything else about the University Park campus?

Yesssss....at least its not Detroit again this year!

But we are second for the most dangerous city; we're back on top baby!

Kilroy, are you a 1L or 2L at PSU? Any thoughts on the school, which location is better, student body, social life, etc.?

I went to the city website for Carlisle and it looked fairly boring. I have never been and have no opinion on the area, so I am interested to know what you love about the area?

I would choose Bama if you are interested in that area, but if you are interested in D.C. I would stick with Penn State. Dickinson graduated alot of politicians and powerful people in Washington. Tom Ridge, I believe, is one of them.
