PLEASE DON'T!!! You're walking a really thin line on whether or not we'll be study buddies should we end up at the same school. Don't ruin it! :mrgreen:

Some people are immune to children. Not me personally, but one of my roommates is Satan's spawn and you can practically see darts coming out of her eyes every time a child is nearby.

Has anybody admitted last week received their portfolio? I'm sure it'll take a while to arrive - just curious. Thanks.

I haven't received mine yet. I think we'll see it later this week (maybe Friday or Saturday.)

How long do you guys think we're supposed to make the Toll essays? All they say is that they encourage brevity, which makes me think max two pages double spaced each, but more likely one page each?

They said the same thing for the Levy, and I'm shooting for about two pages. The Darrow invite emails apparently have theirs at around 500 words. So I don't think you need to cut it down to a single (double-spaced) page...

I'll be at the NYC Reception! Excited to meet everyone!

Also, I am just getting more and more excited about Penn. Their portfolio has done an amazing job of making the clinics, the courses and the city look more appealing than I though previously.

For others who are considering Penn and want to do public interest law, what is your thought process? I had sort of discounted Penn because they're not known for PI, but their variety of clinics and courses is changing my mind a little bit. I haven't done my comprehensive comparison of everyone's LRAPs yet, but theirs doesn't look bad. I also liked their clerkship numbers for recent graduates. Anyone else looking at these things and/or have a different perspective?

My evil plan is finally coming together. Insert maniacal laugh.




Just kidding, the essay will be just as good today as it would be next week. Don't worry

I'm going to do PI stuff! I've looked into their LRAP. It's not super amazing, but it's not awful either. If you PM me your e-mail I can send you a graph thingy I made of LRAPs. I'm really interested in their clinics & their tonnnns of courses (as well as some cross-disciplinary stuff), so Penn is definitely way more on my horizon now than it was a few months ago.
