Congratulations legalsinger! It's awesome to have another international studies/relations student on this board. *EDIT*: They apparently are still giving scholarships.* (I've heard they can give you a scholarship if you do well enough the first year.) The financial aid stuff was sent to everyone in February; e-mail their offices to get it forwarded to you.

My dad works in biglaw and I've grown up knowing that is not what I want to do. It's the reason I dragged my feet on going to law school so much in the first place. I basically grew up without a father and when he was there he was drinking and stressed out from work. Then I dated a guy who was like my dad's twin and it further reaffirmed my distaste for biglaw. I'm PI or bust and compared to the other schools I was applying to I felt like Case will get me the furthest in that field, so that's why I'll be starting there in the fall!
I alway criticize TLS for being seemingly entirely T14 or bust when in reality over half of the people who demand it either can't make it themselves to the top-14, are waiting indefinately or don't have any real/reliable knowledge as to why they think what they do. The legal world is much larger than the few thousand BIGLAW associate-attorney positions open nationally every Spring; we know this. God forbid I should aim to enjoy my law career. See you in August (or June 8th) in beautiful cloudy Cleveland puremorning . . .
