None of the Ivies gave me a fee waiver so I said F it and didn't apply to any but my target (still LOLing at Cornell because I was sold on them going in). Kinda sucks that I can't say that I got into an Ivy league and that no one I talk to on a regular basis has any clue whatsoever that Chicago is a bigger deal than the average TTT but I'm just a prestige whore nowadays I guess... lol
Really? I guess the name sounds state-school-ish but damn I've always held Chi in very high regard, well before LS or anything. I mean like you can go to MIT and you wouldn't be going to an Ivy, but it's fucking MIT.
FWIW, until recently I knew nothing about American law schools, and I had no idea that Chicago was so highly ranked/regarded. To me, Chicago is an economics powerhouse.
I just mean I regard(ed) the school very highly in general, like I would be very impressed if someone told me they went to Chicago. So it's surprising friends/acquaintances of Chargers, who's from the midwest, wouldn't know it's not a TTT.
