General Off-Topic Board / Car shopping
« on: July 06, 2008, 06:54:32 PM »
I'm looking at purchasing a new 4-door smallish sedan in the next few weeks. I'm looking at the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Jetta, and Toyota Corolla.

Does anyone drive any of these cars? Can anyone recommend something in the same class/price range that I might not have thought of?


Incoming 1Ls / Weird things you've been asked in interviews
« on: April 26, 2008, 01:36:52 PM »
At an OCI I got asked why I live in [suburb 20 minutes away from school]

Me: Because I live with my b/f and he bought a house down there before we met

Interviewer: Oh, but why THERE?

Me: Because it's easier to get to where he works

Interviewer: Where does he work?

Me: He's a teacher at ______

Interviewer: Oh, that's cool, how did you guys meet?

Then the conversation skipped back to my suburb and commuting to the city. Whatever, I got the job.

Incoming 1Ls / Reading for pleasure once LS starts?

I just wanted to get people's thoughts on this.

How much do you think you'll do once school gets going?

I'll probably do at least a little since I like to read in bed before I fall asleep at night. I'd be interested in hearing from current students too...

Law School Admissions / Law School Open Houses in January
« on: December 22, 2006, 08:33:31 AM »
I've been invited to open houses in January at a couple schools I've applied too--and my apps are still pending.

What is this all about?

It seems like the idea time to have an open house would either be in a.) August or September when applicants are trying to decide where to apply or b.) in March or April when people have been accepted and are trying to decide where to go.

I'm going to go to the one that's in town, but I don't really know what I should expect to get out of it. There's a sample class and Q & A session. At this point, I'm beyond looking into class size, specialty areas, etc. I just want to know whether or not I'm in....

Any thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Most annoying questions to appear on applications
« on: October 16, 2006, 10:51:19 AM »
What percent of your tuition did you earn?

Ethnic heritage (beyond just saying that you're white).

Permanent address valid until _ _/_ _/_ _

I'll think of more, but I think it would be funny to see what others have come across...

Law School Admissions / Honors & Awards
« on: October 12, 2006, 01:43:26 PM »

I've been thinking about this a lot since it feels like I spend every single moment either working on an application or re-working an essay in my head.

So....what to do to pass the time while I wait for decisions to come in?

I'm gonna start running & lifting weights regularly & get reallyr eally buff.

Crochet a blanket for my boyfriend.

Watch every single episode of all the fall shows that look remotely interesting.

Brush the cats.

Clean the house.

Read for pleasure.

Learn to cook.

Law School Admissions / Disclosing minor traffic violations
« on: September 25, 2006, 10:04:46 AM »
So one of my schools (Loyola Chicago) wants to know ALL law times you've broken the law, INCLUDING minor traffic violations, even if they've been expunged from your records, for when you were an adult AND a juvenile.

I had 3 speeding tickets in a 6 month period when I was 19 (I'm 24 now), and one last May. I had all but one of the ones from when I was 19 changed to non-moving violations. I ordered my driving record and it's totally clean.

I asked my admissions consultant how to handle this and she said I needed to do some research.

Is anyone else having to find out information like this? Any suggestions?
