that would be awesome! i would be a proud ex. i doubt he'd go there though, since his other, even-crazier ex goes there and would probably stab him in his sleep and frame some sketchy new haven resident

Figure out what your priorities are, then compare and match the schoools that both of you got into and go to that school that best sizes up. If its meant to last- it will last.

not when you're 22, in my opinion! you have to take care of/get to know yourself first.

Geez, this thread. OP, you aren't coming off very well. But that's neither here nor there. See where you guys get into, assess the situation then. If you end up in the same place (re: no better options), have a go at the elusive 1L relationship.

Also, for the record, the second major in Psych is pretty much meaningless, but I believe the math program at Swarthmore is a very reputable and challenging one, and he will likely get *some* consideration for it the way any other hard science major might.

You're a funny broad. This relationship is doomed. Enjoy CLS!

Eh, we're future lawyers. Taking people's emotions and wringing them out for money and/or amusement is kind of what we do.

Wait, you're also choosing CLS over NYU for public interest? Okay, either this is a good flame or you've really done no research at all into how law school works.

You guys have been going out for less than a year. I would not make major life decisions based on him. You should both go to the school that you feel would be the best for you individually. It does not make sense to argue about HYS at this point.

ETA: I am married and one of my concerns has been how easy will it be for my husband to find a job where we go. I may turn down a school because of the job issue. But that is a practical consideration - I want him to have a job so he can pay the bills while I am in school. And we have been together for almost ten years.

i know cls is typically known for amazing big law placement, and nyu for public interest. however, they have about the same amount of opportunities clinic-wise, professor quality, etc, and nyu's lrap is not that much better. i like the area of morningside heights better and want the ivy prestige (remember the "where's swarthmore?" comment) so i think columbia might actually have less competition for the PI classes/clinics/jobs i want.
