Congratulations!

Now you KNOW you're going to law school--I can't wait 'till I join that club.

Congrats lauralynne.  Duquesne is a good school with a great rep in the Pittsburgh area.  I got in as well but will be attending Case Western due to binding ED.  Good luck next year.

Why Duquesne?  I looked, and looked, and looked, but I just couldn't.  I just couldn't dig it.

I applied there as a 'safety' because I plan on living and working in Pittsburgh after graduation.  Duquesne is highly regarded in the Pittsburgh area and they tend to take care of their own.  Most of the major firms in Pittsburgh recruit from Duquesne.  I'm not sure if the degree travels well.  If you don't plan on staying in the Pittsburgh region, it's probably not for you.

www.law.duq.edu

It's 3rd tier.  Very nice reputation in the 'burgh.  Very nice staff.  The deans actually teach the class, and on a visit I met many of them.  Everyone was very nice, and it was at the beginning of finals!

My numbers/dates/etc are at www.lawschoolnumbers.com username xpsupiphi

I'm a 1L at Duq if anyone has any questions. I am pretty swamped with work as we just started classes back up so it may take me a few days to respond but I'll be happy to help.

Hey, I appreciate the offer to help.  If you had to recommend a day to come to observe, what day would it be?  What classes?  Profs?

Joe Campion listed a bunch of profs, but from a student's perspective...

any day of the week except friday.

Go to any tort class ,or professor Murray's contract class. FYI Murray is one of the foremost contracts professors in the US.

I got a letter yesterday offering a full academic scholarship (renewable for 2L and 3L if w/in top 50% of class).  I was blown away.  That makes the school much more attractive! ;D
