Guess it's going to be Chicago for me, which is fine. Okay, back to video games.

graduating from CLS debt free is the best law school admission outcome one can attain IMHO. and yes even better than YLS.

agreed. The differential is not enough between HYS and CLS to justify all that debt.

Hmm.. not that I am going to get a Hamilton, but I'm not sure I agree :? In law firms/academia/courts there is such a distinction between HYS and Columbia. It definitely depends on the person and what they want their career path to look like though.

Yeah I wouldn't say it's the best decision for everyone. I would definitely take a Ruby/Hamilton over SLS and HLS, and I would at least entertain taking the full ride over YLS. Ofc, I'm never going to be looking at options like that so it's irrelevant :P

this is what I am thinking. also if you want to do anything abroad.. the Harvard name might come in handy

Yeah, I think it largely has to do with what you want to do after law school. Biglaw in NYC? Hamilton at CLS is the way to go. But there still is a line between YHS and Columbia that seems to be difficult to cross mentally, esp for academia/clerking. (But I haven't gotten into YHS so this is a discussion I will hopefully be lucky to have in the future.)

Congrats!

Since your letter was dated yesterday, I'm not even going to ask location this time. I'm just going to assume that if I'm in that batch, mine should arrive on Monday.

It seems like every day, I lose all hope and then someone on here restores it.

You've gotten me beat in LSAT, GPA, and WE--and almost as good taste in videogames. I'm sure you'll be fine.

Pardon my ignorance, but what does NCE stand for? It's clearly an acceptance letter, but...

Normal Colored Envelope. It's a large white envelope with the acceptance materials. It used to be this weird color, so it was called a Vomit Colored Envelope (VCE).
