Villanova: Done and done
« on: April 05, 2005, 11:09:41 AM »
Villanova it is. I had to send the seat deposit in a while ago because I had an admitted students open house at another school after the deposit deadline, so the decision is a little anti-climactic for me. But it feels good none the less.

So now that this decision is made, what do I do to occupy my time?

How you paying for villanova?  yourself with loans?  you took it over rutgers w/ $?  cool.

You going to admitted student open house next weekend?

1. Loans
2. Not going to the open house. I already went to one in the beginning of March. And my mind is already made up. I don't really need to have that kind of pep talk about the school. Have fun, if you go.

Did either of you guys apply to Pitt?  I think I would like to try for a big law job in NYC, PHILLY, DC, or PITT, but i can't seem to figure out which school opens up more doors.  It seems Villanova has a very active alumni network which is a huge plus.

How nasty is their forced curve?  do you happen to know?

I don't know about the curve. 

I spent a lot of time making my decision. I gave it some extra time just to rid myself of any doubts.  If you have time, you may as well take it. If your money is in, you really don't have to rush it.

Having good quality of life (which is entirely subjective) will make you happier and make you do better. So a good fit is so important.
