^ Lol, I gave off the wrong impression. My SO is not a brain surgeon (nursing student). But, in your scenario, the lawyers pick up the tab. So we both lose.

9. Maryland - all of the DC schools, since College Park is on a metro line.

I'll tell you what she said, she said "Oh my GOD will you shut up about law school? I don't care about your twelve step plan for tricking Duke into accepting you." This from a girl who's also going to law school in the fall. The T14 is a disease for which the only cure is admission.

wow way to generalize half of the population. Personally, who to shop for shoes and makeup with is not a consideration in my life at all. Some women don't care only about $$. :roll:

reasonabledoubt wrote:Very nice, this is a success story as far as SO cooperation is concerned. As an aside, I think I read from an IUB 1L that schools are seeking out applicants who are married. Apparently accepting too many UG seniors resulted in a slew of alcohol related hijinks which of course reflects pretty badly on any LS. Could it be - being married is a "soft" factor? Or "hard" factor? That's what she said. Sorry.


I'm not sure how schools could be using marital status as a soft. I'm married, but there's no button to tick on the application, and I don't really know how one could gracefully work it into a personal statement. Actually, I've met a lot of people who have looked down on me for getting married in my early 20s, so I'm not sure I'd even want to put it on my app.

As for how we're trying to make the decision...we don't have kids, so that makes it a lot easier. I'm going to withdraw from all the places my partner really doesn't want to live for three years/won't find a good job, and then we'll take it from there. I have a feeling he wants me to basically make the decision, but hopefully he'll give me a lot of input.

Yeah, it's fitting, at least in terms of my recent and near-future states of mind (and I'd imagine those of many, many other individuals as well); I notice it consuming me more and more as time wears on. On a happier note, congrats on Columbia. Friggin' awesome :!:

How much will this cost?

variations: How will we pay off this debt? Is it really better to go to a T20 instead of a T40 with a full ride? How will we pay for living expenses? Can we afford to have kids right after law school if we're still paying off debt? But will you really get a 100k+ job? Do you think you could get them to give you more money?

Is it cold there? Would you really want to go to Michigan or Cornell if you got in? Did you hear it was 0 degrees in Ithaca/Ann Arbor the other day?

/all extremely valid questions. (shhh...she reads this site more than me).

I think that's a very generalized comment. I'm sorry to hear you were such a self-centered person. My boyfriend is extremely supportive no matter where I end up.

Thank you Kiersten, I think we needed a woman to call that particular generalization out. ;)

My significant gf is dead set on coming with me (to a different time zone) for law school, and is in complete denial about what law school will be like/what kind of pressure it puts on me for her to quit her job and move with me. She says she wont be mad next year if I have to cancel plans on her... see her infrequently... am always studying but she's in DENIAL, and she won't even acknowledge that coming with me/moving in with me (we don't live together now) is a huge f@cking deal. I'm terrified she's going to quit her job, move 1,000 miles away from all her family and friends to stay with me, while not even knowing what she's getting herself into (/what I'm getting myself into). I've been trying to tell her this is a terrible idea but she's not getting the picture.

I don't think that's necessarily fair. However, if she's driving that hard a bargain, agentzer0, you may have to dump her.

Possible, she is pretty awesome though.
