Truth. Just a few days in San Diego sold me on the concept of California as paradise. My wife won't move there though. Some reason like "wanting to be close to her family" or something silly like that. Pffft. Family won't melt the snow!

Luckily, Chicago is awesome enough to make up for it's terrible weather, so it all works out.

Yeah, with your numbers and WE, it definitely looks to be your best shot at T14. Is the debt holding you back?


Haha yup! All that debt combined with the fact that I'm hanging onto a tiny shred of hope that UT will decide to get rid of the GPA floor and decide to let me in. But I'm retaking and submitting as soon as we get our scores, so I can hold off making the decision for at least a few more weeks. : )

Just your resume and LSAC#. I assume you fill out some paperwork when you get there. Since I'm taking one of the first spots, I can be the TLS guinea pig.


ooo good luck! I will be rooting for you.

Chicago winters build character. Balmy weather is for the infirm.

But seriously- when one has walked a long and lonely mile down a barren, gray street with snow piled up to your waist and the wind whipping at your face and the damp freezing cold getting underneath every layer of your clothing and your eyes watering and crusting with ice- then, and only then, can one fully appreciate the virtue of hospitality, of a warm house, of food and drink and friends and Christmas time in Chicago.

Sorry, I got a little lyrical there. But the weather is worth it.

I'll be sure to stare unblinkingly at my interviewer during this entire speech, and end with some sort of flourishing gesture.

Nice one, Crumps.

Also, does someone in this thread have a Jaleel White tar? If so, might I add: http://youtu.be/I34cljQQ7YA
Although I am not in any way suggesting that this should be the NU song for the 2012 cycle. That would be DEPRESSING.

We can sign up for interviews already? I'm getting on that.

TBF, the only reason HP threadbombed is because I dared him to after he was jelly that I told Crumps she should start the NU thread. It's not like a competition, brahs.

meh. It would be nice to just do the interview in my home city and not worry much about it, but although I've lived almost all of my adult life in Chicago, I've never been to NU Law. And I have some vacation days (I think). I'll shoot for an early-November visit/interview, unless that's ridiculously late. Why is September full already? We're crazy. All of us.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I'd hardly call it 'being scooped', since I asked him if he'd made on yet and he said I should make one if I was interested. Also why is NU's the most inevitably popular?

Sounds like a mild change from Phoenix.
