For those of us who don't want to travel to far north or west... just call me a southern belle!!!!

1.Duke
2.UVA
3. Vandy
4. G'Town
5.Penn <--- that's as far north as I'm going
6.Texas
7.Emory
8.W&L
9.GW
10.Wash U n St Louis
11.W&M
12.George Mason
13.UNC
14.U of Georgia

Now on my LSN I know I applied to school wayyyy north and wayyyy west but i'll be fair and give them the chance to buy my allegiance with some scholarship money!!!


Why Duke over UVA?  Why Vandy over Gtown?

Because it's my top 14 and that's how I rank them... lol

Durham's Cost of living in terms of housing and job market is way better than c'ville.  1100 sq ft house in c'ville 160,000 1100 sq ft in durham 60,000.  Job prospects are better for my hubby in durham.

Much the same reasons for Nashville over DC.  Cost of living and job market.  My hubby works for allstate and they have their regional headquarters in nashville.  He can transfer in for an easy job.

Penn loses spots for being north of the mason dixon line!!! lol

1. Stanford (Bay Area native, so I'm biased  ;) )
2. Harvard
3. Yale (New Haven sucks)
4. Columbia
5. Boalt
6. NYU
7. Penn
8. Chicago
9. UVA
10. Michigan
11. UCLA (harder to get into than some of the T14)
12. Cornell
13. Georgetown
14. Notre Dame (top 10 in the country in terms of job prospects, amazing alumni network, very underrated)

If I could put a #15, it would be Duke.

Uhhhhh, what?  This wouldn't happen to be Princeton Review's ranking, which was compiled by randomly picking schools out of a hat, would it?

My T14 is Berkeley, if they're kind enough to let me in! Other than that, I really don't care.   :D

This is probably the most dangerous thread I'll ever post in from an adcomm scoping out potential admits perspective, but here it goes...

1. Harvard
2. Yale
... (I have a fetish for Boston and like the opportunity to take some courses at KSG)
T3. Chicago
T3. Columbia
T3. NYU
... Listed in alphabetical order for now. Depending on acceptances, I'll be picking between these based on ASWs and a deeper evaluation of my interest in legal academia.
6. Stanford
... Need to get out of the bay area. Otherwise, it would be alone at 3.
7. Michigan
8. UVA
9. Georgetown
10. Duke
11. Cal
12. Penn
13. Northwestern
14. UCLA

I good chunk of the lower portion of these rankings is based on preferred location, moderated to some degree by the slight differences in reputation. UCLA breaks in based on their RAND Institute, which looks interesting and because 72 and sunny sounds a lot better for three years than living so close to Canada (Cornell) with relatively little difference in career prospects.
