I'd like to go on Friday if work isn't too crazy. I'm unfortunately out of town on Saturday though. You?

Are they worth going to? What exactly do you learn from them? Regardless, I'll probably be there Friday afternoon. Though ugh MidTTTown.

I went last year and was planning on going this year to ask a few specific JD/MBA questions, but I won't be in town. I strongly suggest going to the thing where they talk about paying for law school. It's very informative and you get to watch everyone have shocked expressions when they see the interest rates and find out they can't get gov't grants for law school.

So, worth it for the entertainment factor alone? ;)

I'm going tomorrow afternoon. I have to be in the city tomorrow morning anyway, so I figured why not. I want to collect a bunch of brochures. I like brochures. No, really. I like school brochures. They're fun reads, nice pictures, and none of the schools in my area have sent me any in the mail - only schools far away have done. So I'll use this as an opportunity to get some brochures, talk to some folks, etc.

Did any of you get invites from any schools for after-hours events? I got a couple from some TTTTs, for meeting after, hors d'oeuvres, drinks.

Planing on going Saturday. Have any of you also been receiving incessant emails from TTTs since you signed up? They just don't stop...12 alone in the past 4 hours. No way to opt out either. :evil:

edit: RoaringMice, me too. No emails from the T14. I guess that's to be expected.

I've received 58 e-mails from schools informing me that they will be at the LSAC forum.

Damn, I just auto-delete all schools I'm not applying to. Looks like I'm missing out on some sick afterparties.

Eh, already got most of the ones I'm applying to, and somehow I doubt Chicago hands them out at these things. Still, like RoaringMice, I'm a sucker for pretty, glossy pictures and will probably go and collect some.

Also, FWIW here is Spivey's opinion: http://spiveyconsulting.com/blog/forums ... e-or-draw/

Oh god, I'm being full on snubbed by the T14. Oh well, there's always the Catholic University of America. See you at table 403!

I got one from Yale! I didn't even know Yale sent unsolicited e-mails. But my personal favorite e-mail goes to the University of Montana:

Montana Law 3L wrote:I apologize for the fact that you may be receiving hundreds of emails right now from a number of law schools. I just wanted to let you know that a current 3L student, Shannon Hathaway, will be attending the New York LSAC Forum Saturday, representing the University of Montana School of Law.

Yeah Yale was a big surprise...maybe means the FBI is tracking us or something? I actually thought Montana's email was one of the better ones I got

I went yesterday and am currently here now. Really only here for my reach schools and the Financial Aid workshop. Goal is to get some fee waivers today.

I went. Got several fee waivers, even for some decent schools, and collected a ton of brochures. My favorite brochures so far is Yale... Sigh...

The "friendliest staff award" goes to Cornell, for their bubbly enthusiasm.

The most "intense pitch award" for me was Fordham. They really were working to get me to want to apply.

The "table with a surprising amount of business, considering the school isn't very well ranked and it is outside the Northeast" award goes to Liberty U, which did a... well, a surprising amount of business, when compared to other similarly ranked schools.

The "I'm so sorry we're Catholic let me tell you how we're not overly Catholic" award goes to BC, which started in on how it's only as religious as you want it to be, until they realized I'm actually *interested* in the fact that they are Catholic. ;)

The "Let's not bother, we know you want us" award goes to Harvard, which did not show up. Empty table with a few brochures.

Hmm I think you must've caught HLS during their lunch break. Jessica Soban herself was at the table around 3:30 on Saturday.

I was there on Friday. They weren't there at all on Friday.
