awesome!, thanks for the help.

on the uw site it says that you have to move to washington for purposes other than higher education for 1 year prior to starting school to qualify for resident tuition.

i was thinking that it would be possible to argue that you did come to washington for purposes other than education (i.e., you really want to live in washington even after school) and try to claim resident status that way.  is this what you have in mind?  is that easy to do?  do you have friends who have done it?  sorry, just curious...

does UW have a decent rep on the west coast?

Law School Admissions / Re: UMich App Resume
« on: February 01, 2006, 01:29:02 AM »

I tried to be really helpful to the people reading the apps... if they asked specifically for info, I used their numbers and gave that exact info.  Like for Mich I did

a. blah blah blah
b. ...

I ended up just cutting and pasting my resume entries, which are designed to be easy to read.

Seems like an easy way to make make it easy on readers and show that you pay attention to detail, etc...

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Hawaii anyone?

i applied back in nov./dec. and still haven't gotten an answer.  i did get the completion card a few weeks ago.

seems like you would have a good shot with your numbers, i don't really know though.

does anybody know anything about the school in hawaii?  i took the lsat there and, you know, it's definitely in honolulu, but i didn't get a chance to talk to any students or anything.

Choosing the Right Law School / info on u. of washington?
« on: January 30, 2006, 04:10:29 AM »

could anyone tell me a little bit about the u. of washington?  it seems like seattle would be a nice place to live, and the school seems to be well-respected, but i've never been to the area and haven't really had a chance to talk to anyone who knows anything about the school and the law program.  i'd be grateful if someone in the know would say a few things about uw.  i can post more specific questions too if you'd like... mostly i'm just wondering if the quality of life is good and if the students are happy and such.  and, you know, if it's easy to get a job and things like that.

thanks in advance!!

thanks for all the help!!

ooohh usc is private eh!  i didn't realize that.  i heard from a friend that it tends to be easier to get money at private schools.  is that true in your experience?

and wash u... do you mean seattle or st. louis?  seattle sounds really nice ...

LA seems like it would just be crazy... LA... wow.

San Francisco seems like it would be nice, but it would probably have to be Hastings, and i haven't heard great things about Hastings.  i wanted to hear great things about it but the limited info that i found seemed negative.  sorry if anybody goes to hastings... i dunno... how is hastings?

maybe lewis and clark would hook me up?

Choosing the Right Law School / where can I get money??
« on: July 20, 2005, 12:30:05 AM »

I'm kinda hoping to drop down the rankings a bit in return from some scholarship money... are there schools that are known to be more generous than others in this regard? 

I have a 3.4, 173... undergrad was top 10 liberal arts, I've been out of school for 5 years, 3 of them spent teaching English abroad (wondering if this is gonna help or hurt??).

I'm hoping for somewhere on the west coast.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!!!

I would rather workout on campus, if the gym is nicely equipped.

yeah nice gym at the U of A... the HPER building.  it was fairly new when i lived in fayetteville about 10 years ago.  the weight room is not huge if you're a big power lifter, but it's ok, and the pool is nice, lots of basketball courts, racketball, there's a small track on the top floor.
