1. Harvard or Yale, depending on the day. Today, it's Harvard. (b/c I'm completing and submitting my H app today.) Not applying to Stanford. (I have aging parents in NY - I don't want to live 6 hours away by plane. And they wouldn't take my 3.46 GPA-having ass anyway.)
2. Columbia - was always my "dream law school" as a kid. (and b/c I'm also submitting my C app today.) Also applying to NYU (and know a lot of graduates who loved it), but not U of C.
3. UVA - I'm a Virginia resident (so, nice break on tuition). I already applied to UVA EA. Also applied to Penn (also awesome and I love Philly), haven't decided on whether to apply to Mich.
4. Georgetown - Due more to the fact that I already live in the DC area than any other criteria. Already applied EA. Not applying as of now to others on this list, but not because I don't like them. Just a matter of which schools my husband and I would be willing to sell our house and move for - keeping in mind fact that my husband will need to be able to find work in the area (i.e no Ithaca). No Cali (as in #1 above). No Chicago (as in #2). Duke is actually becoming a "maybe" on this list - I need to do more research.
