General Board / Law School and Small Practice...
« on: November 09, 2004, 07:08:11 AM »
I'm currently at Clemson Univ. and plan on going to law school next year.  If I"m just planning going into a small practice and not big law, does it really matter what law school I attend and my graduating rank? 

For instance, I know an attorney who went to a non-ABA school(One that doesn't even exist anymore) and he is in a 2 partner practice bringing in $150,000 a year.

For you people in law school, is it all what the warnings say...

-Constant Reading every minute of your life
-Constant briefing of cases every minute of your life

Sure I know there is a lot of work to be done in LS but can any of you tell me if you really do not have time to do anything else?

What is a particular "day in law school" like?

Any word on its accredition status?  What are the chances of it getting ABA-Approved.  Is there any chance it gets closed down if its denied ABA Accredition? 

Any reply would help as I'm thinking of applying there.

If I plan on practicing law in my own state, and I decide/or I'm forced to go to a state accredited Law School(ie.  John Marshall Law School-Atlanta), what are the major differences in ABA vs. Non-ABA approved other than practicing in other states?

General Board / What Tier do I belong in?
« on: September 08, 2004, 08:01:50 PM »
I'm currently a junior with a 3.35 GPA in Finance.  I plan on taking the LSAT this spring.  Suppose I made a 150-155(Thats what I've been making on the "practice tests"), what tier would I generally be placed in?  I'm looking for a school in the Southeast...any suggestions on realistic schools for me?

thanks..
