Choosing the Right Law School / NYU Loan Scandal
« on: April 04, 2007, 03:54:45 PM »

Anyone else?

Anyone have this sort of info for salary someone could realistically expect to make going to a non-NYC firm but one that is still large? I am seriously considering doing a 2 or 3 years in BIGLAW and then go Fed. Gov't but I want to see what I could expect salary wise.

And please do not give me NY Firm stuff. I WILL NOT move to NYC. Thank you!

Choosing the Right Law School / When to start negotiations
« on: January 22, 2007, 03:21:36 PM »
Hi, quick question:

At what point is it okay to begin negotiating with schools about money? I have some scholarship offers and want to get some (or increase them) at existing schools. Does one generally need to wait until a financial aid offer is also on the table before coming to school A about school B?

Financial Aid / Duke Financial Aid

On the form it says, AFTER you send in your deposit check they will send you a financial aid package. ARE THEY FOR REAL? You won't know how much you're paying until you commit to them? Seems outrageous.

Law School Admissions / Using TX residency as leverage?
« on: January 17, 2007, 10:27:51 AM »
So here is my question. UT needs 65% of its class to be Texan. I am a Texan. I want a bigger scholarship. Out-of-staters with similar numbers get similar scholarship offers to me. It seems I should be able to use my residency to leverage a better scholarship offer since they want as many residents above their medians as possible. Anyone know of a way to effectively do this or of any stories of this being done?


Law School Admissions / IN AT BYU!

I didn't see this anywhere else, so I might be the first!

In at BYU via e-mail. It said in the e-mail that I will get the official letter by mail in a few days WITH scholarship offer. OOOh!

Law School Admissions / Accepted from Waitlist Question
« on: January 03, 2007, 02:34:08 PM »
Okay, I have a question which might be basic, but I do not understand it.

Many schools accept people off from their waitlist well after April and yet most schools make you commit to them some time in April.

So, say you get waitlisted at Superior school A and accepted to School B. You would go to School A over School B if accepted. April rolls around and you are still on A's waitlist, but don't want to get burned so you commit to school B and give them the deposit.

Then, let's say in May, School A offers you admission. School A is your dream school, but you have already committed to School B. What are your options? Is a committment binding or could you break it to go to dream school that accepts you off waitlist?
