General Board / Can You Have A Life in Law School?
« on: March 31, 2008, 12:46:50 AM »
Lets say your going to a Tier 2, for instance somewhere like a Rutgers. Is it still possible to have a life and still be one of the better students. Im I going to have to study 12 hours a day. I can see myself treating it like a 9 to 5 and going to work every day but I hear people acting like they pull late nights every night.

So I guess my question really is how is your life in law school? also how are your grades?

Where should I go next fall? / Rutgers Newark v. Georgia State

Thats what I am down to so far as I wait on decisions from 3 other schools(Rutgers Camden, Hastings, St. Johns). I am also on the Villanova waitlist.

I'm instate at Rutgers and have family in NJ. But Newark is not a desirable place to live. I have never been to GSU but have heard good things about Atlanta. I was wondering how the job prospects are out of GSU compared to Rutgers Newark. What would you choose?

Is there time for sports? lifting? dating? fun? Im having doubts about giving up 3 years of my prime to books.

Law School Applications / Is it too Late?
« on: March 29, 2008, 10:00:00 AM »
I submitted an application on Feb. 28 and forget to send an extra essay in for a special program. I went complete on March 18, would they still put the essay in my file if I gave it to them?

I placed an application there and just wanted to get some insight as to how the school is viewed in California.  I would love to in LA so if I got in I would strongly consider it, Going to Lakers games(huge fan) and the ability to work in a warmer area is big to me.

Studying for the LSAT / Did this Test feel Really Easy...
« on: December 03, 2006, 07:27:50 PM »
unlike all my practice tests it felt easy. I had trouble with a few LR but the games and RC were cake.  Im worried that the scale is going to be really hard. It might have been because it was REAL, i was way more focus and didnt have my usal zoneouts.  I was so mentally tired i feel asleep 20 minutes into the writing sample.


Does any1 else think this test was extremely easy???
