I will say that I just came back from a visit to UTexas and absolutely loved it, but I couldn't commit to it because the whole time I kept glancing at my phone hoping for that magical call. I mean, I would be totally happy to go there...if I got rejected from Stanford. My heart is so torn!
Are you a real person??? You have to be going through the strangest process of choosing a school in history.
I commend you for it though.
Hahahaha I am pretty strange, I guess. Actually, it's funny--I wrote my PS about how I like to follow my own path through life and always make the unexpected choice. I didn't realize that it would be true about my law school decision process as well!
I have serious reasons for strongly considering UT. I met with some really amazing faculty when I was there, and randomly ran into a 2L who had chosen a full ride at UT over Harvard and was extremely happy with that decision (he's at the top of the class at UT and on the Law Review). I also had a long one-on-one meeting with the Dean of the Law School, Larry Sager, who attended Columbia and has taught at NYU and Harvard, and he made some very compelling arguments for why UT fits my interests and would be a better choice for me than Harvard. All the professors I met with agreed that, given what I want, I should go to UT...unless I got into Stanford and Yale (they didn't have much love for Harvard, even the one who went to law school there).
