And of course, there is the matter of signing over my soul to pay for it (that probably still won't cover it). The financial aid presentation, for their very best efforts, was wholly depressing.
there was something about having someone else hand me a piece of paper letting me know that 1/6 of my salary (if I'm making the median starting) is committed for the next ten years
But, as my father says, I guess I'll just have to a) make a lot of money and b) marry rich.
I love it. Admitted students weekend was great. And the calculator/clock has got to be the most delightfully geeky promotional item I've ever received.Anyone else have thoughts? I've pretty much made up my mind. Now I just have to find a place to live, a roommate, move across the country...And of course, there is the matter of signing over my soul to pay for it (that probably still won't cover it).

The visit at Penn was great. It was my second visit (I went to a Fridays at Penn event) and it is definitely making a good impression on me. The cross-study options at renowned schools are interesting as well, but the school holds up even without them. I still have to visit Columbia at month's end, maybe go by NYU again, and fully consider Duke, not to mention I havent heard from HLS yet, but at the moment Penn is definitely running strong. providing what seems like a nice fit for my situation and giving the others a run for their money, now if they just give me some of that money, LOL!
I absolutely loved PENN's admitted student day. I can't wait to start there in the fall. The made the place seem as if it were Law School Utopia. It's perfect.
What did they have to say during the financial aid portion of the event? Did they at least give the impression that a PEnn legal education would be more than sufficent to obtain a job with a high enough salary to pay off the loans?
