I was just accepted to U. of Connecticut. It was my original first choice, but they put me on their waitlist. So I moved to NJ, rented a place, etc. And now they offer me a spot! I told them, politely, that they could offer my spot to someone else. I'm very annoyed now.
Awww phooey! See what I did there?
Well congrats nevertheless!!! I mean when it's all said and done you got into your #1 choice. Some people weren't so lucky. But think of the good you're going to do allowing someone that maybe didn't get in anywhere yet to get a spot at UConn.
Any reason you picked UConn? Are you from CT? The reason I ask is because there's a chance CT may become my permanent home after graduation due to my spouces job. I certainly wouldn't mind living in CT especially somewhere between Greenwhich and New Haven. There are a decent amount of firm jobs and I've thought about maybe trying to do a summer up there to start making some connections.
Yesterday when I checked my term bill just said Zero. It didn't show any credits charged or scholarships applied.
But today I tried to check it and the page wouldn't load so maybe they're attaching the fees now.
UConn has a good ranking, employment rate and bar passage rate. It was the highest ranked school I applied to. Connecticut students can get jobs in Boston, NYC... almost anywhere in New England. The atmosphere appeared more collegial (old buildings, ivy growing, etc.). Its very different from an urban school like Rutgers. I think UConn would end up being more expensive than Rutgers. I'm sure the education at both schools is comparable. Frankly I've seen little evidence that the quality of education fluctuates between any Tier 1 law schools.
Yes, its nice I got into my first choice. Now whenever I meet a UConn Law Graduate I can say, "Yea I got in there too, and I rejected their offer." Clearly the universe wanted me to attend Rutgers. And far be it from me to disagree with the universe.
