You kids get any goodies this year? Last year we got t-shirts and a calling card.

Case a struggling to be tier one but really a tier two school.
That's somewhat laughable, considering that every ranking system besides US News has always had them in Tier 1.

I'm pissed and since they were my safety, I'm even more pissed.
They're your safety and you're in to about a half dozen other schools... so why are you pissed? Now, for your 50 bucks (or whatever) spent applying, instead of just being able to say you got into one more unimpressive school, you have something interesting to complain about when people have one of those application process whining sessions the first week of school. You're the big winner here.

When I was accepted by 2 first tier schools last year, my outright rejection from my backup school well outside of the top 100 struck me as odd... It didn't bother me because I didn't want to go there and had other options, but I always like tossing that one out there whenever people are talking about how their admissions process went. It raises some eyebrows.
Ah, my mistake, I naturally assumed it would be in Denton. SMU and Wesleyan pretty much have the DFW area covered.
There is no public law school in Boston... nor are there any publics in the rest of Massachusetts or in either New Hampshire or Rhode Island (which economically and culturally are also extensions of greater Boston).
I live well south of that area, in Sandown (alternately considered part of either the Merrimack Valley or the Seacoast, although neither really fits). My job this summer is in Concord.
ilsox, you are right, it's not as bad as we are making it out to seem. It just looks rundown. Every city has areas like that. I drove through there, and I didn't feel threatened, I just knew I wasn't in the best of areas.
Every city has bad areas. Not every city is the most impoverished in the USA. Cleveland's reputation is well earned, and well documented.

Hey if anyone is going to admitted students day, I'm trying to get a bunch of people to meet at Dive Bar in the Warehouse District around 10-11ish. 4040 on LSD suggested it, so atleast there will be 2 of us there. Kenxc, you can come and bring a couple of 1L's if you are going to be in town on the 10th.
I'd love to join you, but alas, I'm in New Hampshire for the summer.
Indeed, as Severance boasts the scariest Wal-Mart that I've ever been to.
