Had my JS1 today, with JS. People aren't kidding when they say she's a lovely person to interview with! If only I hadnt been so nervous out the gate... I produced one of the more boring answer to any question that I've ever heard. And it was about my own W/E...

Time to obsessively pick apart everything said until JS2 (read:optimism)

Hi chneyo! Where have you been?


Hey KC! Been on a post-JS1-escape-from-the-New-England-snow hiatus. But back to business...

Anyone else HLS or bust? I mean, I put in apps to YLS/SLS/others etc... but I just can't think of anywhere I'd rather spend the next three years than Cambridge (New Haven? Overrated. Cali? People there are too happy!).


sounds about right haha
im open to any among hys but ill be back to these threads next september if i dont get any of them this year

I just don't know how to tell my family and friends that even though I got into some great schools, I'm going to wait a year and try again. I feel like they won't understand.


Whenever I think like this, I wonder if I have a good enough reason. After all, if you can't make someone else who is pretty close to the situation understand, maybe its because your reason isn't sound enough. I dunno.

My comment was more about last cycle, but in the past a significant part was the size of Harvard relative to other schools. More students = bigger network and hopefully wider set of views. More profs = more likely to find someone who likes exactly what you like. Recognition across different areas of the law that's unmatched = useful since you always hear stories of people who get to law school and end up loving something completely different than they thought they would.

Yeah, don't get me wrong. I'm not about to wait out a cycle if these bells don't come a-ringin'. I'll gladly be the first POTUS since Ford to have a degree from UMich. Buuuuuuut, if all the right bells ring, I'm at HLS, baby. All. The. Way.


That's extremely similar to how I feel.

P.S. Vote Chneyo, 2036.

Thanks :). It would have been great if I could have stayed around Boston since all the family I have in the US and my SO are here, but some of us have to be rejected. Goodluck to everyone else!
