I am curious about this as well.


+1. I assume we're still allowed to join even if we plan on riding some WLs?



any volunteers to start one?

Anyone who is truly committed should probably make it. It would be dumb if someone made it then got in off of a WL somewhere.

Withdrew. Headed to HotLanta.

WUSTL is still great, but Emory took the cake.

Good Luck to everyone!

I must not use FB enough. I thought you could join groups, not just like them.

Or is this not a group, but rather just a page? Sorry, I seriously don't use FB that much.

Yea it wouldn't let me create a group without inviting some of my friends to join the group, and since I don't have any friends going to Wash U's law school, I just made a page instead...I think they work pretty much the same way, but I guess I could create a group anyways...not sure what the difference is

I think this way we can't see who each other is, unless we post something to the wall? Might not be a bad thing, if people are worried about being "outed" but something to think about.

I know I can't see who the other two people who have "liked" the group are.

Np. The annoying part of having a group is that someone has to become the administrater and accept all the requests to join the group. Hopefully someone will step up!

As a fellow splitter who wants to work in Chicago, I would have taken NU for sure (didn't get in though). But this year, WUSTL is giving twice as much money to splitters. If I got twice as much money, it would have made me think long and hard.

But even with a Biglaw salary, $200K in debt is a lot to pay off. And many people don't last in biglaw more than 5 years or so.

Also, consider the fact that COL is cheaper here in STL. I've only taken out $10K this year for COL and I've managed fine, although I did get a big tax return that helped me out this semester.

It depends on what you really want to do. If you want to pay $1,300/month for the next 25 years to pay off your loans and take a shot at Biglaw, go to NW. If you want to live like a college student for 5 years and pay off your loans at $50,000 per year while working 60 hours a week, go for it. Remember, less than 10% of associates at a lot of the biggest firms make partner.

Do you have a lot of undergrad debt? Do you really want to go to law school and kill it for the first year? If you're willing to put in 12 hours a day and you're really dedicated, you'll likely do well enough at either school to get biglaw. If you're going to law school because you're bored or just want to meet some new drinking buddies, you probably won't be motivated enough to do well.

Either way, don't stress too much, because both are pretty decent options.

You could just make some other ppl administrators, then no one person has to do it.

i left the group and then rejoined it thinking maybe that would solve the administrator ordeal... but i think it transfered the job to another member so someone else has control now.... so sorry to those who haven't been accepted to the group. hopefully we'll make better lawyers than facebookers.

Hmm i'm looking at the group, and it says there are 4 members, but no administrators...so I'm wondering if there isn't one right now.

Withdrawn. I hope you all really enjoy Wash U! Hopefully one of you gets my scholly money!

Also, I move that TLS starts calling Wash U by its name. Nobody in St. Louis or at the school calls it "woostle" or "wustl". They all say Wash U. Just my $.02.

I'm thinking we should remake the group.
