Man, when will the Jews ever catch a break when it comes to the field of law? It's about time.  ;D

Incoming 1Ls / Re: A question about attire
« on: November 21, 2009, 12:11:12 AM »
Good advice, gentlemen. My only concern was that, considering it's an unpaid internship and that I'm not in law school (yet), a full suit would be overkill. I can see that I was mistaken. I've heard "you should dress for the job you want, not the one you've got." I guess this applies.

Incoming 1Ls / A question about attire
« on: November 20, 2009, 12:50:50 PM »
I'm interviewing for an internship position with the State Attorney's Office, and I was wondering what the proper attire would be for the interview, and subsequently, if I get the position, the job itself. Full suit and tie too much? Suit without the jacket?  Dress pants and dress shirt not enough? Lay it on me.

Incoming 1Ls / Undergraduate Law Courses
« on: October 29, 2009, 07:14:46 PM »
I'm still in undergrad, and I'm thinking about taking an International Law course next semester. Obviously, I'm interested in the material, but from a law school admissions standpoint, is it looked upon favorably? The coursework, according to the syllabus, is as follows: Brief 2 cases from one of the various textbooks; 4-6 page critique of an International Law Journal; and a midterm and final exam. It seems pretty reasonable. I'd love to hear from people who took undergraduate law courses and, specifically, if it helped them solidify their desire to attend law school, or if it made them apprehensive about it.

Studying for the LSAT / Taking the LSAT abroad
« on: October 04, 2009, 11:27:12 AM »
I was wondering if anyone has any experience with taking the LSAT overseas. I'll be in Italy during the June 2010 LSAT, and I'm considering taking the test in Rome. I am interested to know how the testing conditions differ from here in the states, what effects taking it in another country had on anxiety levels and test performance, or just any other insight in general. Thanks.

I'm smack dab in the middle of a Testmasters course right now. Admittedly, I've been a slacker and haven't been doing the homework. However, the material is still making sense to me, and I plan to use my free time after the class is done to master the concepts I'm learning now. The online material they provide is very helpful as well. There are explanations to many, many of the questions, access to a helpline, and even video explanations for some of the questions. My teacher is really good too, which I hear can make all the difference. So, look into who the teacher is going to be and try to meet them ahead of time if possible to get an idea of what to expect.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Should you guess on a diagnostic?

I appreciate the advice. I didn't do so well on the first diagnostic. I'm pretty bummed out. I'll get it, though.

Studying for the LSAT / Should you guess on a diagnostic?
« on: July 13, 2009, 12:32:51 AM »
I'm starting a Testmasters course tomorrow, and the first class is a diagnostic. Obviously, it's in your best interest to guess on the real thing; a correct guess is a correct answer. However, is it counterproductive to guess on a diagnostic? It seems to me that if your trying to accurately gauge how well you are doing, you would only want correct answers resulting from skill and not guesses. What do you think?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Central Florida Tutors?

I'm in North Florida, but I'll gladly call and yell at you to do more logic games over the phone if you'd like. :)

Ha! Thanks, but I might take my chances in a testmasters class. I appreciate the offer, though. Something tells me I'm not going to have much luck with the private tutoring hook-ups on here. Actually, it might be a bit out of my budget anyway.

Studying for the LSAT / Central Florida Tutors?
« on: May 03, 2009, 06:39:29 PM »
I'm looking at taking either the September or December LSAT, depending on how prepared I feel when September roles around. I'm still contemplating the best method of prep, and I'm interested in the possibility of private tutoring. Do any of you tutor in the central Florida area or know anyone who does?
