I'll probably check out Columbia, NYU, and Chicago because they're in cities I want to visit anyways.
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.
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.
Interesting. I'm not a city person but I love, love NYC.
Never been to London so I can't compare but I'd say it has a similar vibe to the downtown areas of large Canadian cities - think Toronto or Montreal (more the latter than the former imo but my experience is limited). Pretty pedestrian friendly (as cities go), a lot of interesting culture/character, and Central Park is gorgeous.
Hmm okay, interesting. Like I said, I've never been, so my feeling about the city is completely baseless. I think I just need to go there and see what the fuss is about, because it does have a lot of characteristics that I, in theory, should love. At least, I hope I'll fall in love with it, because it certainly opens a lot of BL doors, lol.
