Duke cuz of the lay prestige and sports

In my area (Cali) I feel like Vandy would pull as much as duke to plebs.

lol my Dad takes every chance he can to tell family members and friends where I'm going to school and I'm just like CHILL

I'll probably check out Columbia, NYU, Harvard and Chicago because they're in cities I want to visit anyways.

well I can't say the lay prestige isn't cool :lol:

Yeah I'm thinking NYU and CLS shouldn't be hard. Also want to visit UVA if I can. Debating trying to do Penn at the same time as NYC schools / Duke at the same time as UVA. Also debating whether or not I should try to visit Chi. I don't think they're really known for YP but if it makes them like me more it might be worth it.


Ohhhh you were thinking about YP, not just about making sure you like the location and vibez and what not.

If I was really worried about YP, I'd honestly just make a vacation out of it and drive down the east coast, visiting schools on my way, lulz. Only way it'd be somewhat affordable/possible.

ETA: Sometimes I almost hope I only get into one of YS so I don't have to make that decision.

Write a convincing why X, maybe personalize the PS, do some research that you can bring up in interviews, and that should be enough mitigate the YP at most places.

Ohhhh you were thinking about YP, not just about making sure you like the location and vibez and what not.

I mean I'll def visit my main contenders before making a final decision, as well.

Also I feel you on cost / feasibility; why I'm trying to cut it down / combine things as much as possible

CLS/NYU don't really YP but they do weird shit sometimes and are my <3 schools. Also easy to visit because NYC.


Yes, I wouldn't go to NYC just to visit law schools. I'd just do that as part of a vacation, haha. I really want to figure out how I truly feel about NYC. There's something about it I don't quite connect with (although I've never been there), but I have nothing against big cities (London is <3). So I'm not really sure what's up with it.

Hello hi this is me. I'm basically the opposite of this forum - not going to be applying to T14 and not looking to do BL at all.
