Choosing the Right Law School / Best school to work in RI?
« on: May 04, 2009, 02:25:51 PM »
I know Roger Williams is in Rhode Island but would one of the Boston schools be a better choice if I wanted to work in RI? My Numbers are 156/3.59 so I would go to either Suffolk or NESL. Any thoughts?

Albany, Drake, Southwestern, Stetson, Suffolk, Syracuse

For crime rate stats check out www.city-data.com. I have never been to Albany but Seattle is beautiful!

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Suffolk a tier 4?
« on: April 23, 2009, 06:21:30 PM »
Just wondering if people think Suffolk is getting the shaft in the new rankings. The school has been slowly increasing the median LSAT and GPA, but now they drop down to 4th tier? If one were just looking at the new rankings alone, one would think Suffolk is now equal with NESL and Roger Williams. Anyone else think this years rankings are looking weird?

I just sent in my letter of intent telling them I will not be attending, so one more opening is now available.

Law School Admissions / Re: Reapplying

I was going to ask for the deferral but based on the situation I don't think they will grant it to me. Plus, I have already sent in my Statement of Intent letters telling them I will not be attending. Basically, me and my wifes condo has been on the market now for six months and has yet to sell. None of the law schools near me accepted me so we would have to move for me to attend law school. Unfortunatly renting it out is not an option because being a landlord and living 3,000 miles away while I am in my 1st year would be unwise.

Law School Admissions / Reapplying
« on: April 14, 2009, 06:26:12 PM »
Hey everyone, I applied and got accepted to schools that I wanted to go to for this coming year but I can't attend this year due to unforeseen financial issues. Next year these issues should be resolved but if I apply to the same schools should I write a new personal statement or keep the one I have? Thanks.

Choosing the Right Law School / Pace law
« on: March 31, 2009, 10:31:31 PM »
Is pace worth going to for environmental law? US News constantly ranks them in the top 3 for environmental law. I was wondering if it is worth going to for environmental law and if graduates can get jobs in this area of law. Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / 156 LSAT...Retake?
« on: March 28, 2009, 05:57:29 PM »
Hey everyone. I took the June test and got a 156. I applied and got accepted to numerous T3 schools (some with generous scholarships) and one T2 school. However, when I was studying for and actually took the LSAT I was still in undergrad and working full time. I graduated in Dec. and wonder if you think I should retake the LSAT since I would have more time to study for it now that I am out of school. I took Testmasters as a prep course and improved from an initial diagnostic score of 142 to 156. Any thoughts?

Stetson is the "best" school I got accepted to but I didn't get a scholarship. Is it worth going at full price?
