Yea, I feel like a sucker for paying 50k (and soon more) in tuition but I really liked Cornell when I visited. I hope that if I put in the work, I'll be able to pay my loans back pretty quickly. Cornell's career services did seem pretty awesome so I think it will work out.

Someone mentioned at ASD (not sure if it's true or not) that Cornell was the first law school to break $50k/yr.

Go Big Red!

32.

http://www.lawschool.cornell.edu/admissions/admitted/first_year.cfm

First Year law students benefit from small classes and a close-knit learning environment. In the first semester, all students are assigned to a small section of only 32 students in Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, or Torts, and in Lawyering, taught by a faculty member.

keep that in mind. one substantive + lawyering. the other 3 substantive classes have ~100 students.

Okay people, looks like my cycle's over. I'm still on a few waitlists but, in all likelihood, I'll be joining you all in Ithaca. Can't wait!

Anyone have thoughts on this place? --LinkRemoved--

Yeah. There are 6 sections, A-F, of 32 students. Most classes are combinations of two or three sections. I wasn't saying the classes are all that small, but we do have enough people for 3/4 of a section in this thread.

Once we figure out sections I'm probably down for a TLS study group. But of course you will have to send me your resume, undergraduate transcript and personal statement before you are allowed in





jk, lame Columbia joke.

Referring to "water under the bridge" or the recent suicides at Cornell?
