Am i really going to be forced to sit in a class with you next fall?
Does this mean you're turning down Stanford?
at this thread.
While I know mike and RealTalk are trolls, it is definitely worth noting that the "H-bomb" is at best relatively meaningless and at worst a huge turn-off to any worthwhile woman.
Finally, OP, I'm so happy you're going to Harvard and won't be in classes with me next year. Have fun in January!
Not quite sure yet, actually. I’m really, really torn. I’ve already submitted my deposit to Stanford, but Harvard is becoming more and more appealing for a few reasons. On the one hand, Harvard is appealing because I’m not exactly sure what type of law I’d like to practice (I’d probably going to do Biglaw, but my instincts are definitely public-interest oriented) and I think the size/breadth of classes/student groups/clinics/etc. of Harvard may help me decide what type of law I’d like to get into. I like Cambridge and wouldn’t mind moving back to the East Coast for a few years and most the attorneys that I’ve talked to at big firms in SF and LA have said either that they have no preference between H and S, or that they would (marginally) prefer an H grad to an S grad (nobody in the admittedly limited sample I spoke to said they would prefer an S grad over an H grad). I also *might* want to do something outside of law for a few years (business, finance, etc.) and I think the HLS name will carry me further in that regard.
On the other hand, Stanford was always my number 1 choice. I 100% sure I want to practice in CA (and 99% sure in SF) after graduation and the connections that I would make at Stanford would probably help in that regard. I also liked the culture at S a lot more than H (went to both ASW’s)…the people seemed more laid back, more public-interest oriented, less cutthroat, etc.
So yeah, I’m kinda confused right now. I’m thinking about sending a deposit to HLS before their May 1st deadline just to give myself a little more time to debate the issue. I’ll def let you know what I end up doing though.
