This. Looking at Penn pics makes me very very happy. Columbia pics - not so much.

Seriously. Looking at CLS pictures and going, "200k+ in debt, but good LRAP...but THERE for three years" versus like, Hogwarts for way less but worse LRAP.

ARGH.

Am I the only one who isn't a huge fan of the Michigan library? It's too open for me haha. I'd prefer my own little space and not have to be able to see every single other person in the entire library.

You will be happy at Penn, and probably not so much at Columbia if you don't like competitive atmospheres.

Knock, can we at least agree that in general, UMich's law school is prettier than Columbia's? XD

Even if you hate Hogwarts.

Is that the law library or the main library? My favorite library is still Fisher at Penn. Shame it isn't the law library.

Must be. Either way though I think they have a normal modern library underneath the fancy reading room.

That would be my preference, but my decision is fairly open right now. I might have to just suck it up.

The graduate library is <5 minutes from the Lawbrary and it has private study rooms and secluded tables and such

true, and the underground part of the library is off-limits to undergrads (unlike the reading room, which is often filled with lots of greek-lifers on their blackberries)... Fresh, it sounds like you might know what I'm talking about?

Did you ever see that blog started by the umich law students about it? it was called reading room undergrad d-bags or something like that...pretty hilarious but not very flattering to umich law students

This. Looking at Penn pics makes me very very happy. Columbia pics - not so much.


The pictures posted from inside CLS look good to me. Then again, obsessing over the possibility of a vomit-colored envelope might be skewing my judgment.

I guess I never looked into their LRAP since I never intend on using it.


Not sure if you meant me, but if so, I definitely NEVER meant to say that I would choose MVP with $ over CLS. I'm not 100% sure what I would choose if I were so lucky as to be given the chance, but it would be a huge decision.

I meant myself, sorry for being ambiguous. Although I probably won't get the VCE so no dilemma there.

Just wondering since there' has been some general law school talk here, about $ versus no $, how do you goes feel about Butler versus Harvard? Pro for Columbia is that it is very close to the people I care about, but I would rather go to Harvard I think, although both are awesome and nobody could go wrong with either. I think a lot of people here choose hls over even the hamilton, but it is nonetheless a tough choice for me. Can anyone speak on the relative campus atmospheres and overall beauty?
