Since it's over I'll take this time to address some of the most popular debates in my messages.
1. Rutgers, "The Public Ivy". While I felt I gave a heartfelt response to Disinformation, I see the debate has persisted. Note that most of the responses are anonomous. I'll make a few comments anyway. I contribute them to a few things namely, 1. Envy of the success of the football team *cough penn state cough*. 2. Regret from others for having gone out of state and not being able to find jobs in NJ and NYC as a result. 3. Jealousy because these people have visted their friends at RU and know they are having a overall better experience for less dough.
2. Me vs Rankings: Yes, you may note that I didn't apply to some very highly ranked schools. Reasoning? I want to work in the NYC area. IMO it's one of the few places in the US that is culturally diverse beyond anyone's imagination, fun at 5AM, and just all around offers a better way of living. I know the T14 was closed to me and I also know that the best school outside of the T14 for NYC is Fordham. Do I really care that some schlub judge or "peer" in the boondocks of the South or Midwest thinks that some other school their region is better? No. So let me share this advice with future applicants. GEOGRAPHY TRUMPS RANKINGS OUTSIDE OF T14. There are very few exceptions (ND being one). Work where you want to practice is the general rule, as even the t14s have some regional tendencies. Most major cities have certain feeder schools. Nalpdirectory.com is an awesome and crucial resource that will prove me right on this.
3. Posting my info. I added some stuff now, but honestly, adcomms have a lot better things to do than search your LSN and put the pieces of the puzzle together. Don't award yourself so much self importance to think they're going to come after you. If your qualified numerically, and you're not an axe murderer and don't write your PS on how you decided to become a lawyer after a shroom eppiphany, you can generally figure out where you'll get in. If you don't post your numbers, you are useless on this site. Use an Excel spreadsheet. And if your dad is the dean of admissions or your a URM, don't think you're being coy by not posting that information. You're just disillusioning people with LSATs and GPAs way below where they will get admitted into thinking they have a chance. Stop being so paranoid and starting using the site for what it should be used for.
4/8 Attending Fordham. Will withdraw from everyplace else shortly.
