No, New Orleans is still pretty bad. I was so naive and had no idea that it was so bad when I started school there. Talk about culture shock but I am glad I went there b/c I def. learned some much needed street smarts. Anyway, I would suggest applying to a few more schools, just in case. Cold Schmold...have you ever felt Louisiana in August? I have poker straight hair...it actually curled in the humidity. Plus, it rains and the whole place floods including Tulane (not so much the law school) and some rooms stink like mold. I am happy to stay in the midwest for law school. Have you thought about Madison?
I wish I knew more about law schools that offer sports law but I almost failed gym in high school and really had no idea my undergrad had sports teams!
Here is my list so far for schools:1) Marquette2) Tulane3) Michigan State4) University of GAAny opinions?
U can add GW to the list and have been talking to people- when i take the lsat I am going to aim for 167 and work on GPA to at least a 3.5- I have the time, at the moment I live in FL and taking classes at a local community college to transfer back to my university in Pittsburgh (a long story of why I am in FL) anyway will return to Pittsburgh in fall of 2005 to finish BSBA in May 2006.
