GULC. One of their financial aid workers gave me a very rude phone call in response to a financial aid inquiry... their tone was just snotty and disrespectful. I'll likely be withdrawing my app this week (not just because of the phone call).

These are people you will probably never talk to again, even if you attend that school. While it's arguable that having an incompetent admissions office should reflect poorly on a school, you have better data to base your decision on about how competent the law school is overall: their employment placement numbers.
Ah c'mon, this is a fun topic.https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/imag ... yaAjtcgGP7
I think what he is trying to get at is that it is quite ridiculous to even consider weighing options based solely on small encounters w/ irrelevant people.
Don't know about you guys, but I make all my decisions regarding school based on my experience with the cafeteria employees. Unhappy cafeteria employees who are rude mean two things:
1) That the school doesn't care about them and treats them poorly.
2) That the food is probably going to be crappy.
Now, if the school doesn't care enough about the people who are making something we need to survive
, how can I possibly expect that they will care about me? Secondly, if the food is crappy, I will be unable to perform as well as I could in school. Every minute that I spend outside the school, getting food from the bodega, is a minute I am not spending studying/asking the smarter kid what he thinks the exam will be about.
in conclusion, this thread should be treated for what it is: literal gold.
