ITT I tell you where you're going to law school
« on: March 27, 2007, 09:37:05 AM »
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.

IMPORTANT: IF YOU HAVE NOT VISITED ALL SCHOOLS BUT PLAN ON DOING SO (OR HAVE OTHER OUTSTANDING INFORMATION, SUCH AS REASONABLE EXPECTATIONS OF FINANCIAL AID, ETC), DO NOT PARTICIPATE. YOUR RESPONSES AND THEREFORE RESULTS WILL BE SKEWED.

First, list ONLY 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
6. Finally, write down (or type, I guess) the first school from your list that comes to mind.

Next, rank each of the first 5 criteria (1-5) in 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. There must be a 1, a 2, a 3, a 4, and a 5. No ties.



I'll start as an example:

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

I'll never tell... well, I will eventually. But no, I haven't decided. If someone else had created this thread, I wouldn't participate yet, since I don't have enough information to answer the questions. It was just an example.

CLS, Mich, UVa

1.CLS 4
2.UVa 3.5
3.CLS 2
4.CLS 4
5.Mich or CLS 5

So it would seem that I shouold go to CLS...though I haven't visited yet (will do 2morrow and Thurs, so this could all change).

You've omitted a crucial requirement.

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

Also, I should have been more specific: I need a 1, a 2, a 3, a 4, and a 5. None of this 3.5 stuff, please.

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.

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.
2L, Boston College Law

Around from time to time.  Always willing to answer any Qs about BC, my '06/'07 cycle or law school in general ... PMs work better ...
