It seems like most people I've talked to are only giving themselves a week or so to acclimate to the city before classes start, which seems kind of weird to me.

I would not be able to do this. OK, I am exaggerating slightly, but I need more than a week or two in order to get a sense of my environment. I'd likely perish on Survivor due to this fact.

I plan on moving out to Chicago within 2-8 weeks (yes, quite a large time frame, but it's difficult researching housing from a different state). That way I can settle in and be at ease as much as one can be come 1L.

Red Wings! Hell yes, Ulpian. Those silly Penguins...

1. Yale > Harvard > Stanford

2. Chicago = Columbia > NYU

3. Penn > Michigan > Berkeley = Virginia

4. Duke > Cornell = Northwestern >>> Georgetown

Tier 1 and Tier 2 are a little laughable, because each school is so close within each respective tier (with the possible exception of Yale) that I wouldn't look twice at a Y = H = S; C = C = N preference. My own idiosyncrasies led me to a different judgment.

Also, I'm about as ready to put Berkeley with the second tier as I am ready to put Chicago in the third. That is to say, not at all.

No, my father only binge drinks on the weekends.

Capybara, I think your LSN link is broken; when I tried to click it, a picture of some abusive parent came up instead.

Well played, sir. Damn well played.

First, let me say that the original post was very interesting; thanks!

The most you really need is about 2 months of study.

I think this is wrong in quite a few situations, as it assumes two months of extremely efficient studying. Part of the secret for studying the LSAT is knowing what and how to study, not merely studying hour after hour in haphazard fashion. I, for one, had to re-engineer my own study program twice before I finally made one worth its salt. That's not to say you had to do the same.

Very surprised by Duke's performance.

If anything, it seems that now might be the most recently ideal time to attend law school, at least since the dot.com bubble burst.

I nonetheless must admit that I am worried about the prospect of $150,000 debt.

Curious as to what makes you say this..?

I say it because the market for employment is poorer now than it has been in quite some time, and thus it is an ideal time to gain more education (e.g, law school). Less opportunity cost.
