I got dinged last year because my softs and LSAT score wasn't great and I applied very late (February).

I spent the following year studying the LSATs, improved my personal statement immensely, applied very early (October) and took on volunteer work at ELAW (environmental law alliance worldwide) to boost my resume.

Got in this year.

I'm planning on being there Thur and Friday, also planning to go out to Dragonfish Cafe afterward.

I'll also be there Thursday and Friday. What's the TLS secret handshake again? I'll probably be at Dragonfish as well, but some of that will depend on my +1.

I'm in the same boat. I went complete on 2/2 and nothing has changed. It seems like all the schools in the northwest are slow as hell.

Does anyone know which hotels are closer, the downtown hotels or southwest hotels? What would you recommend?

All of you that are heading out to Portland have a great time! Wish I could join you, but cash is not my friend at the moment. Be sure and let us know your impressions!

You might have to get more specific with your question. L&C is set away from downtown Portland in the SW hills. Also, "downtown is technically SW Portland. As far as I know, a lot of people are staying at hotels "downtown" and taking the shuttle up to the law school or driving up to the campus themselves.


EDIT: I'm assuming everyone else got the notice today regarding the reception and ASD. Sounds like they have a ton of people and it might be a mad house!

I'm gonna leave Eugene tomorrow at 7 am and drive up two hours to get to Portland. Hopefully parking isn't terrible.

As of now, 29 people are confirmed so it is going to be a wee bit nuts anyway. The plan was to head over after the Thursday night reception.

8:30-11 (or whenever)
Dragonfish Cafe
909 SW Park Ave
PDX
--LinkRemoved--

Dragonfish is a sushi restaurant/bar with a decent happy hour. A lot of people are staying at hotels near the place so that is why it was chosen.


I can't make it to that event on Thursday since my flight gets in at 9pm, so would anyone be interested in a Friday event as well?

Perhaps non-pub places? I know that's a shocker going into one of the best microbrewery towns in the US, but that's just my preference.


I'm down to go out Friday night.

I'd be down for something tomorrow evening.


Have we decided on a way to identify ourselves as TLSers tomorrow?

Very excited to visit tomorrow! Will be heading down from Seattle at 6am, hope to make it on time.

Random question for those who live in Portland--any good mt. biking/rock climbing places nearby that are closer than Bend?

Definitely liked the law school. Totally sold on Portland. Just wondering why the law school has to be outside of Portland. Most of the current students I talked to do not live downtown. Some do, but they deal with the commute.

Lewis & Clark does have a shuttle that picks up at Pioneer Square downtown, but do I want to have to make that commute 5 days a week? If L&C law were downtown, I'd have already sent in my deposit. It's Portland that's keeping the school in the mix. Does the awesomeness of Portland make up for the remote/suburban location of the school?

But the campus was so amazingly beautiful. Downtown Portland is not beautiful.

Technically the law school is in Portland. If the law school was downtown it would still be a commuter school. PSU is downtown and is definitely considered a commuter school. Most people don't want to live downtown, they want to live in SE or elsewhere. Also, it would be an ugly school if it were downtown (in fact that's where it used to be). Once again, look at PSU.

Without traffic it takes about 10-15 minutes by car from downtown (that's if you are actually in downtown when you start).

I'll give you that the campus is beautiful in a secluded, foresty sort of way. I thought downtown Portland was extremely nice. It's about the cleanest big city I've ever seen. The Pearl district is really nice too, although probably prohibitively expensive. I think there's a reason the law school directed everyone to stay downtown rather than in the SE. I wish the law school would have done a better job a showing the SE, even just having the bus drive through areas where students live in the SE would have been great.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the SE is suburban rather than urban. Meaning you likely need a car to get around and you can't walk to bars and restaurants quite as easily as you can if you're downtown.

And I walked near PSU in the South Park Blocks along SW Park Ave. I though it looked like a great place to live near, but maybe that's just me. I wouldn't want to commute to there, though.
