Incoming 1Ls / Rolling over a 401K to a Roth IRA while in school?
« on: August 08, 2007, 10:27:29 AM »
Did anyone who has been working before law school do this? My employer is making me either take the lump sum (which I don't want to do for tax reasons) or roll it over to somewhere else. Anyone have any input on some good Roth IRAs to consider or where to start the process?

Financial Aid / only borrow school set COA minus other aid?
« on: March 26, 2007, 07:59:06 AM »
can someone please clarify something for me? i have been getting mixed info on private student loans. is it true that you can only borrow the COA (cost of attendance as set by the school) minus other aid received? This scares me because the Living Expenses budget for some schools is WAY lower than what I would need to get by. how do you make up the deficit between the budget the school sets and your own actual budget?

Studying for the LSAT / How long for the LR Bible?
« on: September 12, 2006, 07:24:36 AM »
I'm in a Testmasters class now, and am feeling pretty decent about almost everything. The only thing I am not confident on is LR. I want to get the LR Bible for some extra practice. Do I realistically have time to do the whole LR Bible before Sept 30th? I saw it was 500+ pages. For those of you that swear by it, how long it it take you to go throught the whole thing?

Anyone have any tips on attacking the 5F questions in LR??? These questions are my pitfall and I've tried diagramming, etc. I fully understand when we go over them in class but when I get to the HW I do so poorly on these! ANy advice is appreciated!
