Where should I go next fall? / Work hours at a law firm
« on: July 22, 2006, 04:57:12 PM »
After doing a little research on the NALP directory, it seems most law firms claim their lawyers work around 2000 hours a year.  I have a hard time believing that; I'm thinking maybe that's the number of hours they actually spend in the office, but they probably go home and work a couple more hours each night.  Anyone have any website or information on what work hours would be like for an attorney in NY, DC, Atlanta, and Charlotte?  I'm guessing more around 60 hours a week instead of 2000 a year.

Law School Applications / fee waiver question
« on: February 24, 2006, 10:37:41 PM »
I'm a junior with a good GPA (3.9) looking at applying next year.  I'll take the LSAT in June, and I'm testing at 163-169 in practice tests.  I'm American Indian, and yes, I really did grow up on the reservation and all. (I'm not one of those one-sixteenth "American Indians" trying to forge a URM status to improve my chances of getting accpted.) 

My question is do law schools give out fee waivers based on race?  Is it the same for URMs and non-URMs or are URMs given more fee waivers to try to recruit them?
