ill just throw this out there...am i the only one who feels like i should respond to current law students from schools that have accepted me when they email me? They just seem so gosh darn nice...maybe I'm just crazy.

I always respond.  But usually because I have questions.  They're lame questions, and I don't expect to get realistic answers, but I still have them.

Then again, I didn't respond to the CLS guy who left voicemail.  (One of at least three males associated with GLBTQ groups to have contacted me of the four total law student contacts so far.  :D)

yeah...i got a voicemail thing today, with a follow-up email. it is one of those strange things...on the one hand i feel like it would be nice to have an honest view from a current student, but on the other i prejudge them as being only concerned with marketing the school. eh.

I have only responded to one of the students who email me.  Because the decision of a law school is entirely not up to me and entirely up to the whims of financial aid, I'm trying to *not* get too into any particular school.

That may not make sense, but it seems rational to me.

I agree with your approach. If financial aid is the biggest concern, getting attached to a particular school w/o any aid can be quite dangerous..

Makes perfect sense.

Scholarships will play a large part in my decision as well. I do not want to have massive piles of debt when I graduate.

how large was your scholarship from Duke...just so I can get an idea of what kind of aid they give out?

Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post

Duke scholarship letter...

is that a letter to apply for Mordecai?

Haha, after posting I figured the wording might raise this question with the way it was phrased. I updated it at the same time you posted the question.

It was an offer, not a Mordecai invite.

same here, congrats!
