Re: NU ~$$$$ vs UVA ~$$$

i don't go to NU but 1) from the NU people i know, i have never gotten an impression that there is a lack of social life there and 2) i hope you're not seriously considering paying $70,000 more for law school to go somewhere with better parties

What was your admissions interview like?
legit the only thing i remember about it was that it was over skype but my interviewer's computer was having audio issues and she couldn't hear me so we muted our skype call and she called me on the phone while we were still on video with each other.
