Wait, wha? I fail to see how this is an issue?
OMG, the law students dress poorly too! I know it's a non-issue and I wasn't even going to mention it, but now that you did, it had to be said. I cringed about 5 times. This could be because I am in fashion school, but seriously the fashion is just lacking. I'm sure there are plenty of decent dressers, I just didn't get to meet them.
edit to say that that's so snarky and obnoxious of me to say, i know. also, i'm not talking like sweatpants out of laziness, i'm talking about actual effort put into creating the outfit and it being bad. ha, i guess us girls notice stuff like that.
and btw, someone mentioned the bronx campus, it's absolutely BEAUTIFUL. if you have a chance, i'd head up there to see it. it was one of my top choices for undergrad because it's just such a beautiful school. the surrounding area isn't so great, but it is really like it's own little world.
I can't believe I have to step in and adjudicate this thread. I'm not happy about this. I'll leave off just how not happy I am about this particular post. As a fashion school graduate myself, I can assure you that there are many people at my school who dress very well, but the stress of law school often leaves us little time to focus on putting outfits together. When I am very busy with legal writing projects, interviewing, or exam prep, I usually come to school in knee boots, leggings, a slouchy top and a cashmere scarf. It's not the kind of creation I would have put together in UG, but I am in law school now, and that has to come first.
I'm also shocked by the PT/FT animosity. We're all classmates and classmates to be, and as a part time student, many of my closest friends are in the day program. We found out when they did.
Lastly, we're here to support one another, and I stayed on TLS because I had hoped, when I was applying, that someone would offer me advice and guidance. This is not the bitter pessimism thread. If you're looking for the BP, it got moved to the lounge.
I'm friends with many of you, and this really just makes me sad.
see...you're why I can't wait to get to fordham. tell us like it is!
