The Midwest is neither sad, nor dreary.  Then again, I don't consider having seasons to be dreary weather, and I'm unsure exactly what sort of "accent" Midwesterners have that would be so offensive. 

Yes, I would like to know what kind of "accents" us Midwesterners have.  I have always thought that we sound like people on tv.  In fact, I think I heard somewhere that midwesterners were used in the military radio communications during WWI because most people could understand what they were saying and didn't have the accents of, say, people from the south.  I'm from WI, by the way.


Now, if you think you will be able to transfer to full time I would definately go Fordham (even though if you withdrew that spot could conceivably go to me ). Here are my reasons:
1) I wouldn't worry about safety at all, I have been in that area at night and felt it to be as safe as any in NY.
2) As for the associate position which is your biggest concern, I think going to the "better" school will be more beneficial in the long run than any position you could get as a 1L.
3) It sounds as though Fordham has been your goal for a long time. If you really want to be a Fordham graduate, go for it. You are very close to getting what you want and what you worked hard for, take it and don't settle.

I would have to agree.  Sure, it may suck to be in the pt program for the 1st year, but if you are pretty certain that you would be able to transfer after the 1st year I would go to Fordham.  Also, have you looked into sitting into an evening class? Maybe that could give you a feel for the diff. the pt students encounter (ask them, I am sure that they would be willing to answer your ?s).

Yes, I received a big envelope yesterday that included the reply card.  I don't have it near me right now, but I beleive that you have to send it back mid-April (either the 12 or 15, I think).

Hey vapid!

I just wanted to say that I always appreciate your analysis of the vast amount of info out there and your willingness to share what you come up with  :). You seem to really be on top of things.

Shellbell, maybe you work for Wisconsin Law and maybe you don't (and if not, they should hire you right away!), but whatever the case you have convinced me to make the treck to the next admitted student's weekend and check it out. Who else is with me?

Haha  :D ! No I don't work for them, but maybe when you visit you can tell them how well I am doing at promoting their school and perhaps I will get some $$$ thrown my way  ;) .

I should add, in case there is a BU/BC debate, I've met a bunch of people from BU and they rank in the 2nd percentile of all the people I've ever met. Literally the worst people I've ever come in contact with. I couldn't believe these people were still in the gene pool. I know all of BU isn't like these people, but it's enough to turn me off from the school.

I hate to say negative things, but this is the reason why I applied to BC instead of BU.  Isn't it interesting how a few people can damage your opinion of something, like a school, by the way they act and then you associate the school with them?  It may not be fair, but that's how my mind works sometimes.

I'm  totally expecting Shellbell to look like Rory Gilmore  ;)

Haha! Maybe if my hair was still dark.

I'll be there.  And I'm pretty sure I chose the mock class.  Are you guys opting to stay with current students?

I don't think that I could really afford it another way.  IMHO, I think it would be just a better experience to stay with another student. Esp. since I know next to nothing about Philly and if the student is a 1L or 2L, you already have a contact if you go there in the fall  ;D .
