What is your real "dream" school?

Postby MikeSpivey » Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:21 pm

If you could go to any school as a visiting 3L (i.e. your degree won't be from there), for free, and you already had a great job lined up, where would you go and why?

Blaach-- I guess you'll have to assume you are already at a certain school. Not sure how to get around that so I guess I could say "what is your dream school independent of resume, degree, and job?"

I'd say that my dream school IS my dream school because of the impact it would have on my resume, its degree, and job prospects.

were you talking about favorite professors or the weather or something?

Something along the lines of the sum of the soft factors of a school beyond the all important prestige/rankings. I understand that is hard to compartmentalize and ignore.

So everyone, we will assume, is at Princeton Law School :)

Hawaii (because duh) or Georgetown (because I think it'd be cool as hell to live in DC for a bit if I didn't have to worry about insane debt/COL/living there forever).

If my Spanish were better, University of Puerto Rico.

A school that reuses old exams that happen to be posted online so I can do zero work all semester and just study the old exams the day before the test.

Of the schools I have visited, if I won the lottery and $$ were not a consideration, probably Northwestern. Here's why:
LOVE the buildings, LOVE the location, LOVE the view, the student body seemed chill/nice, LOVE Johann's twitter trolling.

For one year with a great job and for free?

Cornell but I wouldn't go to class. I'd live it up like Thoreau and find myself in the woods. Just chill in nature for a year, catch up my reading, do some writing, get a feel for small town life after being in mega-cities my whole life.

So yeah, Cornell.

Probably in that order.
