Current Law Students / Law school curve
« on: September 12, 2008, 06:57:05 AM »
I didn't pay attention to curves in college, because I figured as long as I got A's it doesn't matter to think about it. Now,obviously I do care now that I got one of my grades back from my first semester, a B- in contracts ( 5 units) and an intro to law class a B ( 2 units). I am still waiting for the grade for my other class that's 3 units. Anyhow, do I have to get mostly A's to be in the top 25% of my class? Basically, did I already ruin my chances to have a good academic standing?

I know that the top 25% of the graduating class at my school had a 3.434 and above.

Thank you!

Current Law Students / Criminal Liability Analysis
« on: July 30, 2008, 12:38:10 PM »
Does anyone recommend a site or have a really basic skeletal outline on how to best analyze criminal liablity. I understand all the concepts in the course , but I am unsure as to how to do the analysis in an orderly way.
Thank you!

Incoming 1Ls / Which TABLET laptop do you recommend?
« on: April 28, 2008, 02:21:09 PM »
I am looking to spend under 1800 for a tablet laptop. So, I can't afford a Lenovo.
These are the features that I want:
- internal hard drive
- very fast processor
- as lightweight as possible
- at least 2 GB RAM
- at least 120 GB hard drive

you're fine, but as someone who had a 2.8 and a 160, I'd bet you could pull up that lsat a bit...

If not, you'll still make it...

I wish I could pull it up. But, I have seen all the LSAT questions ever given. So, I don't how I can possibly raise my score.

I am a 2007 grad from a non-first-tier CA ABA school which will remain nameless for the purpose of keeping my anonymity. Casper, the truth is that virtually anyone can get into some kind of law school. The only things that really matter for law school selection are 1) debt load required to attend and 2) career prospects available to those outside the top 10%. In CA, the only 4 schools that offer good career prospects are: Stanford, Boalt, UCLA, and USC. You have a shot at a decent firm from Davis or Hastings. All other schools are similar in terms of career prospects, and you should go to whichever school offers you the biggest scholarship.

As for getting in, I can assure you with confidence that you will get in somewhere in CA. You may even be offered a scholarship at a 3rd or 4th tier school.

Thanks for the boost in confidence. For me, the debt is the biggest concern. So, yes, I'd rather opt for the low tier that will give some good $$- but then again it's like I am the most desirable

Ya, maybe I should calm down.
My aim is to get into the 3rd or 4th tier schools anyways, since I want to go part-time. I applied to only part-time programs in NY and southern Cali.
