I'm planning on it although I have yet to book a flight.  It will be the last weekend before the research conference where I'm presenting my thesis, so I'm thinking I might want that time to prepare.  However, the more I think about it the more I realize that making sure I make the right decision about law school is much more important.  Anyone else flying out of JFK/Newark/LaGuardia?

Don't fly LaGuardia - its a wretched airport.  I flew out of there when I went to UMich, horrible:

1) no parking, you have to go off airport which is annoying and stressful when you're in a hurry (also costs a fortune)

2) no monorail between terminals, have to take a dinky looking bus

Newark is kinda expensive (usually)

I'd go with JFK

I live in NYC and don't have a car so I'll be taking a cab/public transportation to whichever airport I fly out of, so relative convienence isn't really an issue for me.  I was just hoping someone would have already done some homework on flight prices so I could book accordingly.  I second your critique of LaGuardia, though I wouldn't hesitate to fly out of there if it saved me a considerable chunk of change.

I'm going only to the second day, because UVA's admit day is Friday. But I have to take every opportunity I can to get back down to Duke. Looks like the trees may be beginning to bud:

(I guess they're on spring break.)

I will be attending the weekend as well.  8)

I would be willing to swap numbers, emails, and a pic through PM.  I did it when I went to Michigan with various people and that worked out well.

I'll be there too, and like the "If I had a dollar..." kid, I'll don't have much of a long way to travel from Chapel Hill.  The trees have all bloomed down here in the past week and it is beautiful right now.  If anyone wants to go out Friday night and see what a great time can be had in Chapel Hill, let me know!
