I announced for the Cardozo thing and asked if anyone wanted to hang out and no one ever responded, so I thought the same thing would have happened here, would have been happy to meet you to! Am I really infamous lol? My table(which didn't have any parents) had people who had either already decided to go to UCONN, or were choosing between UCONN and BU/BC(either in or WL). In terms of walking I do think it would be doable from my discussions with administrators(and from looking around).
The reason I am likely not attending is the risk of not getting the in state tuition and the signals I received on that front were not the ones I wanted to, which seeing that it's a 60k+ gamble was a huge deal breaker. If I want CT, I just don't think UCONN is worth over 100k more than QU(which impressed the holy hell out of me at ASD). If my best case scenario of in state tuition for the second and third year was guaranteed, I might bite the bullet but the risk of having 200k in loans coming out of school when I could just go to QU for basically COL didn't seem worth it. I liked the school and was particularly impressed by what was said about the career services office(in contrast with Cardozo where they seemed quite straightforward about the whole concept of class rank=better jobs) but it didn't do enough to convince me to make the financial sacrifices I was preparing to possibly make. I'm still open to UCONN if I get more money but I have good reason to believe I will not be getting anymore. I did leave with the impression that UCONN's employment stats(which I think were 59% or something like that for JD jobs) were deflated by the amount of people who work in politics/government etc and weren't an indictment of their placement power(the way many on here seem to think).
So TLS is my thing to do when I want to procrastinate and not do actual work but want to look like I'm doing actual work. One day I came across the many pages of your Cardozo vs UCONN thread and it was seriously one of the funniest reads. Since then I've seen your name referenced on other threads, so yea you're a little infamous on TLS, not sure if thats good or bad though. I'm surprised you were impressed by QU. Its a brand new school so it has a lot of great features but I couldn't make it past my interview with the new dean of admissions. He gave me a creepy vibe, and then when I was accepted he left me a vm that came off even creepier. Maybe it was me, I'm a talker, maybe he thought we were on that "level" who knows. Oh, and I hate conditional scholarships.
