The Days inn is actually pretty good (much better than any other days inn I've seen) and it's within walking distance of all the downtown bars as well as campus and the loop stops. It's also got Mad Mex downstairs which has a good beer selection great happy hour specials and draws a big crowd on weekends.

Is there any other information besides the confirmation email? Are we just supposed to show up at the law building at 9:30am and be told where to go from there?

I attended today. It was informative, if a bit long. A lot of the information became repetitive towards the end of the day. I think in the future they should simply hold the faculty panel, a tour, lunch, and a student panel. The mock class was alright, but unnecessary. The Student services panel really didn't give me any information that wasn't repeated in the other panels later.

I'm still undecided on campus choice. I'm 25, and pretty much done with my heavy partying days. State College really is pretty isolated and far away from any non-law-school friends or family. :/

I think the determining factors for me will be trying to determine if Carlisle confers any employment advantage towards getting work in the DC area, and/or if Carlisle has a decent social situation. If it's mostly older couples with families, that's probably not that entertaining. No offense to the people with families. ;)

Totally underwhelmed by the entire day ( Cardozo was 10-7pm so I was prepared), I really thought Penn State was a good choice for me, but my tour guide gave a horrible impression, just is not the school for me, I am leaning towards Villanova now, so glad I visited though, it made my choice a lot easier

I thought the Open House was very poorly set up. The tour shouldn't have been last (everyone was exhausted by then) and the panels became repetitive and shouldn't have all been held in the same room. But, the facilities were amazing and I do believe that Penn State is on a truly unmatched upward trend as far as ranking and prestige are concerned. I am pretty sure I am going to mail my check within the week.

Ah! They have brainwashed you! Haha jk but I really feel that after visiting some many schools and a few ASDs that most of the schools in the bottom of tier1/ top half of tier 2 are essentially the same. The only differences being location and the type of students that attend, which makes your school choice very personal, and I do not think you can really go wrong. And that is what I learned this week haha good luck though!
