I wish.  But I can't get it off work.

I'm going to Pitt either way though.

I can't make the open house, but I was at Pitt last week just for the hell of it, and I liked it a lot. Now I can't decide between Temple and Pitt. I absolutely loved the city, Oakland and the school facilities, but I'm not sure if the school fits my interests (criminal, government, PI, family law - aka non biglaw). Also, the student body seemed very, how do I say this, vanilla? As in, I didn't see much diversity of any kind, which I value a lot. What made you guys decide to go with Pitt?

Perhaps Pitt seems this way because the area itself is less diverse than most large metro areas in the country.  But I don't really get the impression that Pitt has a "corporate" culture.  I mean -- it is a smaller law school than Temple so there are fewer students going into PI Law.  And originally I was a little worried about the lack of students interested in PI.  But I think I've had an interesting experience with Pitt b/c I have a good friend who is planning on going into PI law coming out of Pitt (she's a 2L now).  So she introduced me to a lot of students in the ACLU chapter and the National Lawyers Guild chapter at Pitt -- as well as other students interested in PI law.

In any case, I don't think she feels uncomfortable at Pitt or like it's way too corporate.  But that's just been my experience...
