also in news that pales by comparision, in at Michigan today and invited to apply for the Darrow. She might tell everyone this but Dean Z said that she had already sent out all her Darrows and my app made her decide to send one more.

For some reason if I were to get the full Darrow I would seriously consider it. Idk there's something about Michigan I really like


Oh wow. Congrats

It is a chill place. I can get you some first hand 1L info on that when I talk to a friend in a couple of days.

I feel the same way about Michigan(love it, in theory at least) but my background is still making me strongly consider Harvard.

I see from your page they offered you the full Darrow.

I agree though about the background thing. From what I've seen you post elsewhere we kind of have similar backgrounds where everyone is going to be pushing us hard for Harvard or bust.

And I won't lie there's something about the idea of always being able to have that on your resume that's so appealing.

Seriously. Name dropping Harvard has already helped me get a job for the spring and summer. I mean, I had something to do with it too Im sure, but the fact that I spent the first week being introduced to company execs as "this is tkgrrett, he has been accepted to Harvard law" tends to support the idea that Harvard had something to do with it as well.

LOL. Whatever my reasons are...telling someone to go to Yale is never a bad thing!!!

You're so considerate LOL. Plus you're a bleach fan so that's always a positive if I ever get into HLS and want to be nerdy and bring it up. (It's a guilty pleasure)

But yeah chris...if it's for you...go to Yale. I never would, but it seems to be the default choice on here.

Going to Yale IS money! How is it that you can get into Yale but not grasp this concept? It takes money to make money. :lol:

FYI, Yale and Stanford tend to give out very generous financial aid offers. If you truly need money and its reflected in your finaid app, you will get money thrown at you. You have no reason to be even hint at being frustrated with your opportunities. Can I get one exclamation of happiness that isn't tempered by some trivial concern, lol?

Be. Happy. :)

60k at Georgetown today. From what I can tell, that's super generous by their standards. This game's getting a lot more fun now that the money's coming out.
