Re: Class of 2021: we're basically 1.5Ls now

I literally checked grades within 5 minutes of them coming out (last week).

I was whelmed.

Re: Class of 2021: we're basically 1.5Ls now

I spent a bunch of time in the library and was okay. I roll solo most of the time so just hid in a carrel in the corner. Most people hid in study rooms. It was almost eerie (and a wee bit depressing) how few people I saw during finals even though I knew people were around. I've done a couple of job ...

Re: Splitter with unique softs (I think!) 3.45/172

The 3.45 hurts quite a bit, but during my senior and junior years I lost close friends to suicide which didn't exactly help . Hopefully I can stand on the strength of the LSAT score. First off, sorry for this...sounds like an especially traumatic experience to go through. But if you feel like GPA c...

Re: Class of 2021: It's so c0Ld in the D.

Got my first memo back...not horrible but slightly below the median. At least it gave me a kick in the pants to get me to start working on the next one. I killed a bluebook test we had though.

Re: Northwestern c/o 2022

Current 1L here, I love it, questions are welcome via PM. Video interview format is a little weird (you get a question, then some time to prepare, then like 90 seconds to answer) and if you have the opportunity to do one in person I would recommend it. I had zero chance to come to Chicago during app...

I made my last withdrawal from UVA today and felt bad putting the "it was pretty much a tossup...the only difference was cost" line in there, but it felt necessary.

Re: Class of 2021: It's so c0Ld in the D.

Should I book my travel reservations for a planned Europe trip now so I have some incentive (being able to pay for said trip) to not put my 2 weeks notice in tomorrow? I have less than 2 months before I leave anyway but the light at the end of the tunnel seems an eternity away.

Re: UVA c/o 2021 Applicants (2017-2018)

UVA's negotiation policy is a hard no, right? I enjoyed my visit today but I'm not sure I can justify a $50k+ price tag difference for a slightly better employment outlook (especially for clerkships) over Northwestern.

Re: Northwestern 1L/2L/3L/Grads Taking Questions

The law school is in the U-Pass program that the rest of the graduate programs participate in, right? Since I'm pretty set on keeping my car I'm thinking about living in Lake View to save on parking (and have cheaper rent) and taking the red line to campus.

Re: Northwestern c/o 2021

What are people leaning towards in terms of living situation? I want to be in/near Streeterville for 1L year but I also have a car. I might try to get a roommate and split a 2x2 so I can afford the $200+ a month for parking.

Penn (WL), San Diego, Emory, W&M, Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, W&L, and UNC, most of this within the last week or two. And I still have 10 schools left (3 I haven't heard back from).

I might ask WUSTL if they will extend their deposit deadline since I can't really visit until the 3rd week of April. Considering there is almost no way I commit without visiting, and I was admitted so late that I had most of my travel plans made for other visits and almost certainly won't be able to...

Re: When should $$$ trump rank?

Updated poll because I can't make up my mind. My first preference is NU and with any amount of money it is pretty much a slam dunk (obligatory: JOHANN PLS). I do still have visits to Michigan/Virginia planned (and could fall in love, of course). I don't think I will be able to squeeze a visit to WUS...

I'm out of town for 10 days so I told the post office to hold my mail. So that acceptance packet/scholarship letter (...probably not) will just be sitting there for a week.
