fyi -  from top 30 school,  top 15-25%

don't waste your time getting an LOR from a prof that doesn't remember your name just to have a prof write an LOR

second, lsat/gpa are way more important than anything else.

One more thought....listening to the audio CDs is a good way to get a general idea of what's coming (e.g., Sum and Substance series).  You don't have to get it all, but having a 10 hour lecture from profs can be very helpful and puts off the inevitable pain that will be felt by your eyes and cranium.  Just sit back and let some of it soak in.  Just having heard the vocabulary will give you an edge.  In case you don't know yet, managing your time as effectively as possible to learn faster than others is part of the game.  Hearing the same information on audio might trigger something in your brain, plus it gives you another view from an expert. 

Life of a Law Student was a free audio thing that you can listen to online.  The property lectures were alright and mostly accurate (they are posted by a law student).  The other classes seemed pretty useless.  I am guessing his prop prof was his best teacher.

E & E - sounds awful.  But, if you can force yourself to read them, it will be useful.

I'd vote for:  (1) law school conficential; (2) getting to maybe; (3) Bryan Garner's legal writing in plain english.  The writing book has mini assignements every few pages that can be done quickly and will help you in your legal writing classes.  For me, legal writing was very time consuming.  Now that I have this book, I can see lots of good tips that would have saved me time writing memos.  Finding ways to save yourself time, so you can spend it studying the doctrinal classes, is important.  And, legal writing is one of those things you can, at least partially, teach to yourself by getting some of the formulaic stuff down ahead of time.

plausibility of living in Chicago was incorrect. 

I doubt the exact numbers were the point of the response. 

Law School Admissions / Re: NU Status Checker Question

My guess:  Some people are getting accepted in the next 24 hours and it's creating a few bumps for the status checker.
