he also had a bad day with gw. it could be a super late application or some issue in the app.
Sibley, how was your visit?
I'm a little hesitant to talk about it after all the dings yesterday, but maybe they can find something they won't like in it. Or... just don't read =/
It was really good. They have hammocks. I was hoping to not like it because it's nowhere near my boyfriend and the weather isn't good enough to make me not care. But everyone seemed to have jobs (aka the one 2L I talked to who was becoming editor of law review... she was our tour guide and didn't tell us this til a classmate outted here... has an internship with the DOJ this summer, and the 3L I talked to has a job in NYC lined up), the campus was gorgeous (the good weather didn't hurt), the class I sat in on had me entertained for 80% of it despite not knowing the material being discussed (and the prof was funny... he called on this kid, saw he was wearing a cubs shirt, called on someone else instead... then went back to the cubs kid so the rest of the class didn't start wearing cubs shirts). The kids in the class were writing emails/etc during class but I feel like that happens everywhere and they weren't talking or anything like that. The facilities were nice (I mentioned the hammocks... they also have new architecture in the old style so it's gorgeous but not grody, and they have a fireplace with leather couches, and etc). The campus is huge and I only explored the law building and the village or whatever it's called, where they gave me a visitor meal pass (I got coconut curry stir fry which was a bit bland but I guess my own fault as there were plenty of things to add to it and I only added that green grassy stuff).. the meal options were great. The only real issue is that everyone has the same lunch time (there are no classes from 12-1) so it could get super backed up at that time, and the student commons area gets really crowded... but it's kinda nice too. you actually have a chance to see your friends without much effort. Oh. So there are hammocks, and there's a fireplace, and there's a SWIMMING POOL. just hanging out right in the middle of the campus! just chillin over there. and I saw some girls sun bathing but not by the pool, just in bikinis randomly outside of the law school pretty much. the lockers they have are nice, the facilities are nice, the train works but not as frequently as nyc... dunno how the other profs are but they seem to have an open door policy (don't mind if you show up not at office hours)... it was a little culture shock for me. I'm not used to so many middle-of-america people and so much talk about kansas and ohio law. I wonder if all the classes get their material from the surrounding states. I guess it makes sense... uh... any questions?
just wanted to add that I wasn't really interested before I visited. My intention in visiting was to have something to compare other schools to and to make sure I considered all my options. Before I left I got a lecture from my boyfriend about keeping an open mind. And when I finally got to St Louis I considered just hanging around the airport all day then going home... I was very tired.
