JSHM: as a fellow ultimate player I need a different kind of advice ... if I want to play out my final year of eligibility, should I pick:
GW, BC, BU or W&M

Factors: I am a handler, not that fast or tall, and have significantly more distance and accuracy with my forehand huck vs. my backhand.

W&M, hands down. I wasn't even good enough to make the A team, and I was easily the fastest person on either team. My only worry is that if you're neither fast or tall, you might not get much playing time/might not even make the A team.
I'll join the cool crowd: 3.23/173
Blinded by the light (Attending): UVA!!! Wahoo 2010!!!
Wrapped up like a feminine hygiene product (Accepted): UVA!! Fordham, Georgetown!!! NYU!!!!!!!!!
Another odor in the night (Rejected): Harvard

right, well thats what I'm sayin ... I would rather maximize my playing time than maximize my making natties potential (if I wanted to make nationals I would go to UW)

In that case, I'd probably say GW... but that's a mostly uneducated guess. I'm also thinking that I'd rather deal with practicing in DC winters than Boston.

With the recent flurry of X v. Y threads, I decided to create a one-stop shop of sorts. Here's what I need from you.

First, list the schools you're considering attending, then answer the following questions subjectively (or objectively [ties are acceptable, but please list all schools]):

1. The school with the best location (factor in local activities, proximity to SO's, etc.)
2. The school that will overall cost you the least (cost of living included)
3. The highest ranked school (according to whichever source matters to you; personal rankings count)
4. The school that you think will give you the best job prospects (go with overall flexibility as opposed to what you think you might want to do, since that could easily change; factor in location as well)
5. The school that best seems to fit your personality

Next, rank each of the 5 criteria it terms of how important they are to you on a scale of 1-5, 1 being least important and 5 being most important. For example, if you don't care about cost, rank it 1. No ties.

Finally, pick one of your schools off the top of your head, the first one that comes to mind. Write this one down also.

I'll start as an example:

1. NYU - 2
2. UVA - 3
3. NYU - 1
4. NYU/UVA - 4
5. UVA - 5
NYU

I'll play:

Duke, NYU
1.Duke/NYU 2
2.Duke 3
3.NYU 1
4.NYU 4
5.Duke 5
Duke

Johnny, you are too demanding.  What's wrong with 3.5?

CLS, Mich, UVa

1.CLS 4
2.UVa 3
3.CLS 2
4.CLS 4
5.Mich/CLS 5
CLS


happy?



Grr... you have 2 4's and no 1, but I'll let it slide, since CLS is the obvious choice for you, assuming nothing changes after you visit.

Sorry, didn't notice.
CLS, Mich, UVa

1.CLS 4
2.UVa 2
3.CLS 1
4.CLS 3
5.Mich/CLS 5
CLS

You should copyright this system, John.   8)
I don't want to do it if it hurts or if it makes you get all sticky.

Last cycle Props had this Excel spreadsheet called "The Law School Calculator." It was very impressive.

Get on it Johnny.
