Stanford 1l taking questions

I'll stop by sporadically over the next several days.  Let me know if there's anything you'd like to know.

"How do you like SLS?"

The only school I'd rather be at is YLS.  I don't love everything about Stanford and Palo Alto, but, on balance, SLS is a great place to be.

"Does it feel small?"

Not as small as I'd like, but the only schools that might arguably offer a more intimate atmosphere are YLS and the UofC.

"Do you know a guy with whose last name is sort of like Elephant?"

Don't think so.  Classmates are, without observed exception to date, nice people.

"Intellectual property--is everyone into it?"

I'm not.

I think it feels pretty small at Stanford, although not claustrophobically so.  YLS and UofC are both actually bigger than SLS, and I don't think that UofC has a non-LRW small section. 

I'm definitely glad that section size is 28 at SLS as opposed to 15-17 at YLS-- it's enough people to have a good variety of potential friends and study mates.
SLS '10 and now working.  PM me if you want to get in touch!

Just going off of what I've heard from profs and other students about the feel of the schools relative to one another.

Same questions I ask on each of these threads:

1) Are there any students married w/children?
2) Besides your own case, how generous are they with financial aid?
3) Where do you live/park?
4) How does your SO like your new LS lifestyle?
5) What was in your acceptance package?
