Congrats on UNLV. How serious are you about the school, especially with your Boalt acceptance? Good job with all your acceptances - great numbers deserve it.
Thanks for the kind words! I *am* intending to give UNLV some serious consideration. I only applied to schools that I thought I truly would be interested in attending. Boyd is such a new school that it hasn't had time to make much of a reputation for itself but I think it seems like a school on its way up. Also, I'm actually living in Nevada right now and it's been my primary home for almost 15 years so it's got the ol' in-state benefit working for it, too. Basically, my plan is to visit all the schools that accept me and see what sort of vibe I can pick up. That, combined with the inevitable finance issues, will play a big role in my ultimate decision. Best of luck to ya, and here's hoping those admission folks get back to you with decisions soon!
on your choices. I hope you end up at Boalt b/c you seem like a cool guy :)
our stats are really similar and I'm excited to see you got into some of the schools I'm planning on applying to! --A 2004 JPSM participant (investigated wind power plant construction and operating cost data at the Energy Information Administration)
hi tim, we stayed in the City Hall dorm, a former hotel that now has 3 beds crammed into each room. The kitchen was nicer than the one that I had while living in the DC area the following semester for an internship (in that I could actually turn around in the one at GW). Dorm living was quite an experience...three of the JPSM kids got engaged that summer (2 to each other, one to someone outside the program) so that was pretty exciting. My job...not so exciting. Department of Agriculture was strange...we got briefed on the difference between pigs and hogs, and EVERY employee told us about this movie set there that involved the theft of price data on orange juice concentrate...apparently this is the big claim to fame, over at the USDA. We didn't go to Transportation, but the worst visit was definitely the social security administration. My favorite was National Center for Health Statistics, because they actually had us give surveys to each other and then guess the dumb mistakes people made while filling them out. Energy had a pretty fun trivia contest, and the Census Bureau had pretty cool refreshments. Overall, not a bad summer, but I think law's more my thing...good luck at UMich! Maybe I'll see you there next year (fingers crossed!)
Hi, David. A telephone call from the Dean of Admission was how I first got word from Boalt, actually. "How would you like to change your life and study law at Boalt?" was his opening line. It caught me completely by surprise, getting a decision so soon after my file was completed. Crazy-go-nuts.
