The Law School is probably the nicest part of the campus and is impressive. The gym building is ugly and the Law School just isn't that impressive.

Here are my observations...

Harvard)

The campus is very hectic, not all that beautiful, and to be honest not quite what i would have expected from Harvard. The Law School is probably the nicest part of the campus and is impressive. The gym building is ugly and the Law School just isn't that impressive. One big marble building and relatively speaking I'm sure HLS is fantastic. However, in accordance with my expectations of Harvard, quite disappointing.

Yale)

Just wow. Yale is the most impressive, stunning, awe inspiring campus ever. The Law school is very nice, rather Gothic looking but never the less stunning. Yale is what i expected Harvard to look like, and because it is the #1 LS, it did not disappoint.

UPenn)

Its a very nice campus. Its in the middle of a beautiful part of Philadelphia with the skyline right in view. The law school building is fantastic and its just beautiful. I loved Penn and thought it was very modern looking and was in an excellent part of phili.



is this the kind of thing for which Ken is paying people?!

If campus is a factor in your decision, then surroundings probably should be as well. Harvard is located in Cambridge, whereas Yale is in New Haven. I agree on Penn, though. People tend to knock its location without actually seeing it.

Wendy's - I just went to Wendy's and let me say first of all that it wasn't what I expected. The advertisement says "It's not fast food, it's Wendy's!" I found this was not the case. My food was delivered to me very quickly. Not what I expected at all. The fries were soggy but the chicken wings were the best part of the meal. The coke was watered down and the chicken wings sucked. Not what I expected AT ALL.


Taco Bell
- What can I say the food was delicious! It's not really surprising considering that Taco Bell is the #1 fast food chain in the country. The counters were clean and to my surprise there were no bums jingling a cup circling the establishment looking for spare change. This lack of bums was a big plus in my book!!! I know they emphasize diversity because there were three types of sauce and I could wrap my soft shell taco in a hard taco shell, this acceptance of taco mixing was another big plus.

Jimmy John's Underappreciated sandwich joint. The sandwiches are hearty and some of the seats have cushions. They also don't glare at you for having more than two refills. There are amenities such as the option to purchase cookies and chips which I thought really rounded out the choices I had. I know that if I go to Jimmy John's again I won't be without options and will leave fully satisfied.

I've never seen Harvard Law's gym, but I have to believe it's nicer than Yale's....seriously, PWG is beautiful from the outside, but....I'll say it this way: It was built in 1932 (think American history here), and the equipment looks like it hasn't been replaced since.

I'm assuming you don't get a whole lot of action huh? Your probably that kid who wears the coke bottle glasses and pushes them up to his face when you talk.

Any ways good luck on the whole fast food thing and your humor really speaks to your intelligence

Sorry to inform you that it really wasn't funny and its very absurd when people decide to make my hopefully helpful observations into satire because its pretty disrespectful. How about you stop telling me what to do and how to act and go back to high school.

I was confused by what you said about Harvard where you mentioned that the law school was impressive and then said that it was not impressive, but this was already brought up. I did think that the comments of some of the other posters were disrespectful. I think direct feedback concerning where it was believed your post was lacking would have been more appropriate (instead of an analogy that came off to me as being mocking in tone). Best of luck with your law school pursuits!
