It's the beautiful weather in Ithaca that draws them there.
It's the beautiful economy, likely to remain so for 5-10 years.
Statistical anomaly? I wonder if anything similar has happened at other law schools over the years?
Two words: Andrew Bernard
Must be the balmy winter weather.
Cornell, the reddest Ivy League school, is the fast track to insider connections for aspiring marxist overlords.Regarding MM's comment: yesterday we had clear skies in Ithaca, ten minutes later a squall that dropped visibility to zero. Just another day above Cayuga's roiling waters. Today we're a balmy 6 degrees.
@ricpic, thanks for the weather update. If either of my sons decide to go to law school, I'm going to suggest Pepperdine.And move in with him.
and why is that? do they offer an advanced course in ambulance chasing?
The ghost of Carl Sagan is luring them from the astral plane?
Ricpic, You're in Ithaca?I'll take a detour by the next time we're headed to Racquette Lake. :)we go through Binghamton (where the wife is from) up 12 and then 28 to our camp.
They have good food in Ithaca BTW. Those Cornell kids can cook :)
Pepperdine is a most awesome campus but given the glut of lawyers in the world, I'd go top 20 or go home for the immediate future unless you have connections or want to work outside the typical track.
do they offer an advanced course in ambulance chasing?You mean an advanced torts class? Yes, they did offer this, at least when I went there.
@Chris, I was being facetious and conscious of the weather in the hills over Malibu Beach. Personally, I think I'd rather my boys went to jail than went to law school.
There was a similar, unprecedented jump in applications at the University of Chicago for undergrads this year. It will be interesting to see how Obama will be responsible Cornell.
Sounds like it's, in part, consumers trying to buy 'quality' during a tough hiring cycle, in the belief that quality translates into better employment prospects. Of the five Ivy LS (H, Y, Col, Penn and Cornell), Cornell is the easiest (but far from easy) to get into.
Maybe it's the same guy applying multiple times under different names.
The tired old cynic in me wonders if they are being tested for a discrimination suit.Love the region. I won my first, last, and only NASTAR medal at Greek Peak. And when the skiing fails, there are always the wineries.
@ Michael: My immediate reaction to the headline as well. Andy certainly thinks highly of his education there. (Or more acurately: he thinks others should think highly of his education there.)
Maybe they like this guy.
Maybe it's because engineering in the US, as a profession, is doomed. Seems a lot of students have done the math and figured law school is the way to go.
