So, here I am.  I've read NUMEROUS posts on Internet boards trashing both schools.  In actuality, I've read a ton of posts trashing any school not in the 1st tier.  However, this is the decision I am faced with.  My GPA, score, etc., are what they are, and are not going to change over the next 48 hours.

My focus/strategy for law school is Entertainment Law.  It is what I set out to do when I received my bachelor's, and is what has led me to this point.  I have thought from day one that Southwestern had the premier CURRICULUM for Ent. Law, but am hesitant because of so many negative reviews from people (most competitive, decreasing reputation, bad part of town, 4th preference for firms in L.A., etc., etc.).

I was accepted at Southwestern 2 years ago, WL, rejected last year, and then WL, accepted TODAY, this year.  So, up until this morning, I had planned on attending Cal Western in San Diego.  I have a flight booked on Sunday, three hotel nights, financial aid set up, etc. 

I absolutely love the idea of studying in San Diego.  Who wouldn't?  That's a gimme.  However, I have to be real, and remind myself that I am not going to school for the climate/social atmosphere/"laid back" environment. 

Is there a choice here at all?  Mainly, I needed to get this in writing to organize my thoughts.  But I would love any advice, suggestions, or experiences you have to share. 

Can I call Cal Western and ask for money?  How quickly will Southwestern get me a financial aid package set up?



Incoming 1Ls / Laptop Carrying Cases

Anyone know of good on-line stores for carrying cases? 

What about those backpack laptop carriers?  Make sense? 

I'd prefer an "over-the-shoulder" style, but am a little worried about room for books.

Did I mention that I have no idea what I want or what I'm looking for? 

Thanks for any leads...

Incoming 1Ls / Laptop Comparison (Dell 600m v 700m)

For those knowledgable about Dell Notebooks, trying to break down the "real" differences/advantages between these two machines. 

Never owned a laptop, and wondering about the difficulty of a 14" display vs a 12" display.  Plus, keyboard typing difficulties...

Thanks for any help.
