General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Free Book geared for 1Ls
« on: March 17, 2013, 12:11:04 AM »
I'm a 1L in the northeast and I decided to write a quick Kindle book on what to expect and how to handle your 1L year. It's mainly just things that I really wish I had known prior to starting law school. Have a look,, it's free for the next few days. I'd love to have everyone's opinion.

Anyone here planning on attending QU this coming fall? Know anything about the area/housing?

Just got my acceptance and I'm curious if anyone else is planning on going or at least applying?

This is a great site that allows you to see what's required and generally when things become available. LSAC has sent out an e-mail saying they'll release the schedule of when schools become available on Sept. 1st. Most are available the first half of September.

If anyone is interested I've finished my tours of New England Law, Suffolk Law, and Northeastern Law. I've been placing my write-ups of each on my blog. I currently have both New England and Suffolk written up and posted, and hope to have Northeastern added in the next day or two as well.

Any idea where New England stands against Suffolk? I would imagine Suffolk places better, as their 3rd tier vs New England being 4th.

New England Law does indeed still exist. It's right on the Boston Commons in downtown. The law school that was bought for the new UMass Law is Western New England Law, way out in the middle of nowhere in Lowell or Amherst, I can't remember which.

I would agree with this last post assessment aside from one thing. Both of these schools are regional. Graduating from Quinnipiac might, and will likely, make it much more difficult for you to be practicing in NY/NJ. Unless you already have connections there or plan on opening your own firm, a NY/NJ firm will be more familiar with NY schools. Just two cents. I would only take Quinnipiac if you're willing to potentionally end up practicing in CT/Mass. Mind if I ask what your numbers were? I'm applying to Quinnipiac in the fall with a 3.2/160 and would love to know if I'm competitive for scholarships there.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: What law schools should I apply to?

It's kind of difficult for people to tell you where to apply to. You have great numbers. I recommend looking at to read school profiles. Also, Law School Numbers will give you an idea of where you'll be competitive. With your numbers you can pretty much apply anywhere and probably get in, with the possible exception of Harvard/Yale, so really, decide where you want to practice/live and look at schools in those regions.
