Crap! Thanks for the info. Does anyone like the idea of checking out the Mark Spencer Jazzluvr suggested? I really don't want to pay more than what I was expecting to pay for Modera...



I like the idea! I don't want to pay too much more either...

UPDATE 2: The Paramount Hotel appears to be booked for the night of March 18th as well.


Yeah, I saw that today as well. I would also add that Ace is booked too. I've always wanted to stay at an Ace hotel, because they look awesome, and figured this might be a good time to do it. Looks like I might just end up paying peanuts at a hostel instead.

Here's the link to the Mark Spencer. Looks like regular rates are from $99-169; can't call right now to find out if they will offer discount tho (I'm at work), but if they do offer a comparable rate, I'll probably jump on it, since it looks like lots of places are filling up, and at least one person recommends this one... http://www.markspencer.com/.

In via Snail Mail today. 157/3.97
No $, same letter about how they already gave it all away. That's a shame...

I am staying at the Crowne Plaza downtown. Don't know how much it was because I purchased a package deal on Travelocity or Priceline (can't remember which) that also included my air and car rental.

Excited about visiting L&C for the ASD... UofMD may have just made up my mind to move out to OR anyway since they just waitlisted me.

How many of us have been admitted, do people think? How many do they typically admit for a year? I know there are stats somewhere....

I visited Lewis and Clark on Thursday. I live in Texas and couldn't make it for admitted students weekend. The school is beautiful and secluded. All the law school facilities are great. I sat in on a class and it was really interesting. I also used Hotwire to book a hotel downtown. I got a 3.5 star for $65, $80 with tax and it ended up being the Hilton downtown. Hotwire is a great website and I've never had a bad Portland hotel when using the site.

I just found this on the L&C site. Apparently they won the national environmental moot court competition again:

Yes, I agree. I was there for the animal law conference in October. The school is like a fairy wonderland in the middle of an enchanted forest. The law library is nearly all glass and surrounded by gorgeous trees, which you see from all the windows. They have one room or building there that's like a round tower, nearly all glass and very tall, filled with a bunch of couches and other furniture and with law books lining the walls. You walk out of the door right into hiking trails.

Also, I sat in on a civ pro class, which has become my "benchmark" for the quality of a school. I'd previously sat in on the civ pro classes at Boalt, Golden Gate, and USF in Bay Area. USF's was pretty good but I'd have to say L&C's was the best. Of course, this is not necessarily saying much, because it's also the luck of the draw - which particular prof is teaching, what subject they're on, etc..

Just booked a room at the Mark Spencer Hotel for March 17th, 18th & 19th - $110/night (booked online, selected "best available web rate" or something to that effect). There's also a place where you can "make an offer" for a price - but it says they may not get back to you for 48 hrs, so I just took the $110. FYI for those still looking for hotels.

Accepted today :D No money :( They said they would reevalute the money situation in April, but I am not holding my breath.

I love Portland, but relocating there is probably not realistic right now.

2.76 / 168. Went complete about five weeks ago.

Just booked downtown Portland 3 star hotel on Hotwire and got The Benson at $96/night. It was a little bit more than what I wanted to pay. However, I think this was the best option because I can walk to the shuttle pick up point and don't have to pay the $120+/night for the L&C recommended hotels.

Just throwing that out there for whoever is still looking for a hotel.

I love your avatar! Is that your kitty?


I just booked a room at the best and cheapest hotel in the greater Portland area--my aunt's house across the river in Vancouver. Free meals and wifi! (I need to rent a car to drive to L&C though, so it does have its drawbacks.)

I visited L and C as an undergrad. Pretty campus, but definitely wasn't what I wanted at the time. I ended up in Boston.

I just got in to the PT program today off of being "on hold"! I got the on hold email in January and was really surprised I heard today... the email said april or may.

I also got admitted to U of O with a small scholarship, although enough to make it more like in state than out of state and am going to visit in April. I'm leaning U of O b/c I'm trying my damnedest to take out < 100 k in loans.

Hey, if any of you do need a ride to and from the law school(at least on Friday) I can acommodate two people in my messy car seat filled car. I am a current student and will be helping out on the ASW. The school will have shuttles from downtown I think, so if you are there you probably don't need a ride.

Thanks for the offer, katjust! I'm set for transportation myself, but it's certainly nice to see a current L&C law student here. I'll see you at the ASW!

For those who didn't catch it, katjust answered some L&C questions here: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=104916

Congrats! Did you send a LOCI? I'm also on hold and was planning on sending one this month because they said they wouldn't be reviewing my file again until April or May.

It's actually a stray that I found. But I couldn't keep it in my 600 sq ft apartment (too mean to the kitty) so I gave it to my boyfriend's parents where it has a backyard and another cat to play with.
For some reason every time you put a camera in front of her face she yawns. It's the weirdest thing.

Thanks! I did not send a LOCI. I've been accepted to a few of my other top schools, so I'll probably be withdrawing soon. If I'm going to take out significantly more than 100 k than I'm going to go to USD and live at home. Plus, I didn't fall in love with Lewis in Clark when I visited before. I'm interested to see how I feel about U of O after I visit.
