Given Dean Kagan's argument that Harvard>Yale & Stanford because "bigger is better," has anyone asked her, what about Georgetown?

Yeah, I think Harvard University has a general policy banning movie film crews from campus.  The shots of "Harvard" in other movies are thus similarly fake. 

Whereas Duke is happy to whore itself out to J. Crew, Dawson's Creek, and anti-discrimination-against-Islam commercials.

Wow, it's so awesome that Kagan is calling you guys. I wonder if she's only doing it for the ones they really really want? I got my HLS '09 shirt today, and I thought to myself, "Just like the messenger bag at admit weekend, one more thing that I feel reluctant to use because I'd feel sorta gunnerish." Haha. But I love getting mail from Harvard, and free stuff is always appreciated.

Werd...I wonder what students she is calling -- certainly not all of us (read: not me).  But if she does call, I'll at least have conversation fodder.  I just found out that she and my college president sit on the Board of Directors for the Skadden Fellowship.  Hmmm....

I am thinking about going to the April admit weekend. Hopefully it will be as fun as the March one sounds.  Can you guys recommend any good places to stay?

Don't know about places to stay, but just know that the tour you go on pretty much determines the people you hang out with for the next day or so. So, choose wisely. (Sam Adam's Brewery Tour!!)

TITCR.  We were the cool kids.

Or, um, I think we were.  I'm not sure.  I've never been one of the cool kids before.   :D

We were totally the cool kids. You know it. We brought the party. We were rockin'.

Or maybe we were just drunk. Either way, Sam Adams is the way to go.
