Hi, everyone I am currently moving into a new city and a new school that I recently become not to happy with.  I am about 5 hours from my home and want to practice law closer to my home, but decided to attend a school further away because I was not accepted to the local schools and was offered a decent scholarship at the school I am beginning to attend.  My LSAT scores were only 148 and 151 so i did not expect to many acceptances and or money for attedning any law schools.  Now that I am in my new city away from everything, family friends and girlfriend of 4 years, I am regretting my decision more and more.  I still have the option of getting out of my lease and I am definitely considering it.  This is where I need everyones help, I recently have found out that my scholarship is applied to tuition differently than I previouusly thought.  This has not made me to happy and I feel that I am paying more for an education that I may not have necessarily picked a few months ago.  Can you please help me with my choices???

My ideas are to stick it out and go to school.  Hopefully I will be able to transfer, I know this is not a good possibilty however and I do not want to be stuck in this city for 3 years. 

My other option would be to take a year off again, and study for the LSAT, I have never studied for it and took both tests cold.  They are the only two LSAT's that I have taken.  I would enroll in a Kaplan or Powerscore class something along those lines, work part-time and study full time for the december LSAT.  I really want to attend a local school in Pittsburgh such as Duquesne, Pitt or even WVU or Penn State I would be happy with any of those. 

Please help with ideas, or if you think these feelings will go away.  THANX

I will be attending the University of Detroit Mercy in the fall and I am currently trying to find an apartment downtown.  Are their any areas that I should avoid.  So far a few places that I have found have been the Kales, Lafayette Towers, Lafayette Pavillion, and Town Apartments, they all seem pretty reasonable.  Thank you so much for any help.  I am truly lost.

Where should I go next fall? / Tulsa or Detroit Mercy
« on: April 23, 2006, 08:54:09 PM »
I am still waiting on a few schools but a seat deposit is due at the end of the week.  I want to practice criminal law, but have not been able to decide on either school.  From what I gathered so far, Tulsa seems to have a pretty good rep in the midwest, but I am not crazy about working in the midwest.  Detroit mercy is in detroit so that in itslef does not seem that great.  However I am from pittsburgh so the school is only 5 hours from where I currently am.  I would liek to practice in pa.  Can anyone give me alittle help on what they think.  I am completely clueless on which school to send the seat deposit to.  Thanks for any help in advance.

Where should I go next fall? / Tulsa vs Touro vs FCSL
« on: March 06, 2006, 01:21:30 PM »
So far these are the only schools that I have been accepted too.  I am having a very hard time deciding on which school is right for me.  So far I think I am leading towards Tulsa.  From what I have heard it seems that it has the best reputation.  I am from Pittsburgh so none of these schools are very close to my home. 

I have heard negative things about FCSL about grading and the fact that they are a relatively new school.  But, I have also read things about their sports law placement, and high bar passage rate.  Touro is the closest school to me and is in a great state, however their tuition is very high and they are outshadowed by many schools in the surrounding cities and region.  So I am not sure how I feel about them, because so far I will be paying full tuition at all schools because I have not been offered any scholarships. 

The main reason I am asking for input on these schools is becuase I would like to visit one of the schools before I make my final decision.  I am leaning towards visiting Tulsa.  since it seems to be my top choice.  I am just afraid that I am overlooking brightspots at the other schools and not thinking about my decision.  I know I would like to live in florida over oklahoma, but I am still clinging to the hope that I will be able to work in PA with a Tulsa degree, there are some very successful young attorneys inthe area with Tulsa degrees. 

Sorry for the messy post, as you can tell I do not have alot to go on about any of these schools any help, that you can offer me would be greatly appreciated.  ???

Law School Applications / LSAC I can't get ahold of anyone
« on: January 13, 2006, 10:41:57 AM »
Does anyone know how I can either find out my pin # so that I can get through the automated service.  Or if there is another number that I can call.  I am asking this becuase it has been a week, and some of my reports have not been sent, and my new letter of rec finally came in and it is not being sent to the schools that I need it to be.  I am complete at some schools and want to make sure they get my letter as soon as possible.  Thanks for any help
