Real safeties?
Tuesday, September 06 2005 at 08:00 PM

Your stats are great but have you considered any higher ranked safeties? It seems like youre set on the Northeast region...Penn, Georgetown maybe? Never hurts to be safe (we all know you arent going to Brooklyn unless they put you on salary)

It's too bad we won't be going through the process together; I had looked forward to cheering all your many acceptances. But I'm sure you'll be doing something equally amazing.

Hooray

For being done!

Thanks and good luck

Hey, suger. I just wanted to say thanks for all your help on LSD and to wish you luck this app cycle. I'm sure it'll be a great one!

You are...

...like Xanax for law school anxiety! Thanks for all you help and good luck deciding which of those 6 schools you will want to attend.

I want to stay in the Northeast, which answers the 5-19 question. I don't see a point in going to a school elsewhere when I want to work here. If I'm not in anywhere by late December I suppose I may get nervous and throw apps at Penn and Georgetown, but I feel good about my chances at getting into at least a couple of the schools I've applied to. And as a queer feminist pagan, I'm just not comfortable with forever being associated with a Catholic institution, no matter how open and tolerant it may be, so that's why I'm not applying to BC. It may not be fair, but I don't want to go against my gut in something this big. Also, BU and Northeastern both have programs that appeal to me, and that will probably help get me into public interest law work, which is what I want to do (no biglaw for me).

Fair enough. For the dumbest person ever to go to law school, I sure got lucky so far in terms of where I've gotten in.

Which Seven Sister
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

I went to VC, but I was on the fence between there and Smith right up until the day I sent in my seat deposit. :) Go seven sisters! Hopefully I'll see you at admit days.

Congratulations, and two quick questions
Friday, December 31 2004 at 07:00 PM

Hey, congratulations on the acceptance! I have two questions for you though. It would be awesome if you could answer them. I got a W on my transcript (non-punitive, non GPA counting,) Did you have any Ws on your transcript, or do you know anybody that has one or more and will it affect my acceptance into Harvard, Yale, etc? (Considering I get a high GPA and a high LSAT? (E-mail me or leave a message with the answer in my profile) Also, if you dont mind, could you tell me how you prepared for the LSAT?

The Seven Sisters is the name given to seven colleges founded as all women's schools that were considered to be the "sisters" to the Ivy league.

what does WE mean?...thanks!

YLS etc.
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

I did start that thread, but then I got over it. :-D The more I thought about it the more I don't see a huge difference between YLS and HLS (and yes, that's probably about 95% ego-salving revisionism, but there we are), and I'm incredibly ready to move on with my life. Add to that Yale's yield rate and the odds of anybody moving off the waitlist, and it just wasn't worth the stress to me. I'm leaning strongly towards Harvard, almost to the extent of being decided.

RTK v. Harvard
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

Honestly for me it's really come down to location. In terms of academics and career prospects I think they're equal, if not in the same ways (I would have thought NYU would be better, but HLS's PI advisor really won me over, and clerkships do sound like a great opportunity that's a ton easier to get from HLS). In terms of student body I found enough diversity at HLS to reassure me, tho I'm sure it's at least as good at NYU (I didn't get a good feel for the student body at the admit weekend, but I've heard good things). So it just comes down to the fact that I'm kind of a nature girl, and being able to see grass and trees and such, and to find places where you can't hear traffic, is really important to me for destressing. If NYU were in Cambridge and Harvard were in Manhattan I'd be NYU bound, but as it is, I think Harvard is the better pick for me.

Central Park...
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

...just doesn't cut it as nature for someone from Vermont. It always feels crowded to me. And the Hudson Valley is lovely but it takes quite a while (and usually a car) to get anyplace that's not swarmed on a nice day.

Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

They haven't offered any money yet; if I got the scholarship it would be full tuition. But given the COL of NYC I'd still be in quite a bit of debt afterwards. Strangely enough, with the LRAPs of both schools it looks like there isn't a significant difference between being $60k in debt or $120k in debt; either way there's only so much they'd require me to pay per month (dependent on earnings and savings), and either way it would be paid off in 10 years.

I withdrew from the process prior to the interview, so I wasn't offered it. I'd decided that even if I were offered it I wouldn't take it, so it didn't make sense to do the interview.
