Hi, everyone. I'm hoping to leverage the knowledge of those who have done a lot more research than I have. I have already put down my deposit at NYU and received 50k/60k in scholarship there (depends on whether or not I do PI). I just got off the waitlist at Chicago today (looks like I'm not the only one on the board)and am now faced with a new decision. I welcome all suggestions as to which I should choose.
About me: Interested in constitutional and media law. I'm also interested in public interest although I don't know if I'll do that for a career. If I had to guess, I'd say I'll probably clerk and work for a firm, but I do want to keep my options open and be exposed to a variety of things.
I'm sort of a nerdy academic type but also enjoy having a good time on weekends. I'm not particularly competitive against others and have no interest in being so. It's definitely important to me to go to school with a fairly friendly and supportive atmosphere. But it's also important to go to a school with an academicly engaging environment. I want to be around students who enjoy learning and discussing law for the sake of doing so. Also, I'm fairly liberal. No preference toward NY or Chi. I've lived around both and like both.
And then, there's the NYU scholarship.
