Law School Admissions / Summer 1 L - need advice, maybe...
« on: June 09, 2004, 05:22:31 PM »
OK, I posted this message in another section of this board and it received no response as of yet.  So I'll post it here, now.

I'm interested in doing a study abroad program during the summer of 1 L, learning (maybe) about the Chinese legal system, and earning credit for law school.

By doing this, will this impede any possible summer employment during the 2 L Summer (as I will not have any legal work experience from 1 L Summer), and maybe, even indirectly, affect some of my opportunities after I graduate in a negative way?

Second, and I know this is a question for my law school, but do you think it is OK to go for a study abroad program through another law school, and have credits transferred...I know my school will have to accept any arrangements prior to making them...has anyone had any experience or know anything about this...

Any input re: these two questions is greatly appreciated!!

Law School Admissions / Housing & Fin Aid
« on: June 05, 2004, 02:15:58 PM »
I have a strange question...
If on FAFSA, you indicated your preference for
off-campus housing, and then you receive a fin aid award letter through your law school, but decide on
on-campus you need to change your FAFSA, contact your university, or any other actions?  I understand, depending on the school, on-campus and off-campus housing may be more or less expensive, and this may be factored in your fin aid package...

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Law School Admissions / Scholarship money at a 4T
« on: May 31, 2004, 03:18:22 PM »
Well, I had applied to Golden Gate University, and they
were EXTREMELY slow in processing my application.  About 2-3 weeks ago, I sent in a letter withdrawing my application.

This past Friday, to my surprise, I was accepted to Golden Gate U and received a $48,000.00 scholarship...

This is tempting...hmmmmm...but tuition alone is 11K per year above where I will be going to law school, and I'm going to a 2T...

But 48K is nice...oh well...

Anyone deciding on going to a less than favorable, even bottom rung school, as a result of a nice financial package? 

I was certain I was going to get in at UNM.  Anyone else get dinged here? 

I wonder how large the waitlist is at Univ of Arizona..

Law School Admissions / Random thoughts on law school...
« on: April 24, 2004, 09:10:50 PM »
Lets start a thread and see where it goes.  My idea: Jack Handy, and maybe some truly random thoughts...

A similar conversation is going on in another thread...

But I am wondering, is there a strong correlation here, with the members of this board, between the score acheived on the LSAT and that acheived on the SAT?

What was your LSAT and SAT scores, and do you see a correlation?

Law School Admissions / Admitted students meetings...a bit awkward??
« on: April 23, 2004, 10:17:35 AM »
OK, I went to such a meeting last night.  It was slated to begin at 5:30 and run until at least 7:00.

I left my apt at 5:00 heading downtown to get there.  I didn't factor in "going-home traffic," and it took me 1 hour 15 minutes to get there, whereas it usually takes 10-15 minutes. 

I get in there 45 minutes late, and halfway through the presentations.  I take solace in the fact that two other people made it in after me.  But once it was over, everyone began to mingle.  I am not much of a mingler.  I spoke with 5 people, and probably came across as somewhat pensive.   And then I left before even eating any appetizers, or having a beverage...

Is this strange?  Is the whole experience a bit awkward for people?  Going in and not knowing anyone, and not having any pressing questions, and knowing that you will be attending the school??? I guess I let my social anxiety get the best of me, yet again...

Is it just me, but after you have decided on a law school, is it difficult to make a formal withdrawal from other schools?

I mean difficult in the sense that for some reason you don't want to, as you have been accepted here, but you know you must.  I am speaking specifically of places where a deposit has been placed.

I do understand that the sooner I formally withdraw my application, etc., the sooner someone will be considered for that spot...

Anyone else reluctantly withdrawing?  And what is the psychology behind this...working so hard to be accepted, and then having to choose one and abandon the rest...??
