I spoke to Joe yesturday, we should be getting all of that information next week.
Anyway, Rob...about me...
I have been living in NYC for the past five years. I am a Certified Public Accountant...I will do taxes in April for food..LOL.
Why Duquesne..I used to commute to Pittsburgh for a client of mine..PNC bank. I really liked the city, I thought it was small enough to be comfortable but large enough to live an urban life. It also seemed to have a rather large business environment. I liked Duquesne's curriculum as well as its placement, it seemed to have a focus that was very appropriate to what I want to learn. It seems the graduates do not have a problem finding great jobs.
I also look forward to it being a smaller school which hopefully will foster a cooperative environment for us and not a cut throat ultracompetitive environment. It seems Pittsburgh is a somewhat underserved legal market.
Well thats the short answer!!!
I will be living on the SOuthside, I can walk to school and after living in NYC, I dont think the bars will be that enticing to me, nor will the noise really bug me...
I will also be a block back from Carson street so it will be a little quieter.
I'v noticed a lot of our classes are full year...we should have an interesting week or so in may with 4-5 comprehensive finals! Isnt that exciting...
I will be in Pittsburgh on Monday - Wednesday is anyone up for a drink!
