Like you, I have no interest in working in BigLaw. The curriculum is definitely a plus, as is the location and employment rates. Sounds like you certainly have no regrets about choosing Mercer. I am early in the cycle, but have applied to Mercer, Samford, South Carolina, Alabama and Charleston. So far, I have one acceptance at Charleston, the rest are pending. Once more decisions come in and I make my visits, I want to be able to make a fully-informed decision and appreciate all the information I can get.
based in part on this thread, i have put in an application at mercer.how's the weather there?
While I think it's great that they teach legal writing to such a degree, I just want to add for all the 0Ls out there that legal writing classes absolutely blow. I'm not sure I would have made it out with my sanity if I had to take 8 hrs of it. *And this is coming from someone who loved writing in undergrad
I just got my acceptance to Mercer!! I am excited and am planning to attend the Preview Day on the 20th. I am waiting to hear back from GSU and Emory as well. If I attend, I will have to commute to Macon from Atlanta. What are the class schedules like? Are you able to have all your classess on Monday, Tues. and Wed. ? If this was the case, I could rent a room somewhere and stay in Macon for 3 days out of the week. Is this possible? I did see a house for rent for $300 a month..any thoughts?
