that's awesome -- although i'm a bit nervous that you're not applying to law school there...may i ask why not? :)

great visit
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

i\\\'m sure you\\\'ll have better options than UT, but I had a wonderful visit and liked it a lot more than Wake or UNC. Hopefully next year will be better for Phil and Co.

too bad they only went 5-6, not 4-7

Monday, August 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

yes, that's true, i'm exagerrating...although i'm not sure what you mean about "too bad!" 5-6 is better than 4-7, as far as i can tell... anyways, thanks for the feedback and best of luck to you!

Hey, just wondering whether you were seriously considering UTK still ... especially with the Legal Scholar offer. I've been trying to make up my mind between them and Wake Forest, where I just got a bad vibe.

congrats again
Sunday, January 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

Wow, I was just checking out your info again and saw your new acceptances. Nice job!!!!!!

Re: congrats again
Monday, August 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

Thank you very much! I definitely have my fingers crossed for you and UNC. :)

yes VISTA!
Tuesday, January 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yeah there doesn't seem to be too many of us on the board! Congrats on your awesome acceptances.

Friday, September 16 2005 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Rutgers and the rset of your acceptances. If you choose not to attend Rutgers, Brooklyn, or Fordham, please withdraw your applications (you can do so via email I think). Thanks!

Congrats Back
Sunday, January 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the comment ... it's kind of funny, I've been waiting all this time for UNC to accept me and now I think I'm going to Wake, esp because of the money. Congrats on your scholarship !!!!

Monday, January 02 2006 at 07:00 PM

Kindly withdraw from Brooklyn if you do not wish to attend. Thank you!

Sunday, January 15 2006 at 07:00 PM

Sorry to see you withdraw from Wake, but I just wanted to say Congrats on all your great options!!!!!

Duke vs. Penn
Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

First off, congrats! What an awesome cycle.. even with the Columbia fiasco! In any event, I faced the same decision as you with Duke and Penn, so I thought I'd let you into my thought process, as it seems you are looking for advice. First off, Duke is fine school. Though I never got to visit (I was going to the ASW until I found out my aid offer -- a day before). In any event, everyone I dealt with was great. Even one of their hot-shot professors took the time to answer a few of my emails, usually within the same day. It seemed like a very close-nit school. My biggest problem with Duke, though (aside from the money they offered me) was the location in Durham. Although I am looking for a tight-nit law community, I would like there to be plenty of social options outside of the school. The kind of options offered by a city. I realize the research triangle is great, but I won't have a car, and besides, everything is so spread out there, I kind of like the compactness of a city. Also, I like Penn's academic freedom and grading curve. By academic freedom, I mean the ability to take 4 classes outside of the law school (either to get a certificate or just for fun), and, as far as the grading curve, I like that there is no GPA. I won't make this post any longer. Either choice is great!
