Current Law Students / Loyola Los Angeles
« on: January 12, 2008, 06:43:58 PM »
Im considerin goin here but am concerned for one reason. I know that it's separated from its undergraduate school. Does this have any disadvantages? To me, this would make it hard to have a sense of community. For example, at other schools, everything is right there on campus, the fitness center, undergrad library, dining halls, sports facilities, etc and there is lots of interaction between grads and undergrads. Lookin @ LLS, it just seems disconnected to me, just some random building with classrooms in the middle of LA with nothin around it. But I really do hope its not like that, since the academics and career prospects seem pretty good. Also logistically, what do you guys do in terms of classes? Do you just stay at LLS the whole day and attend class whenever needed, hangin out around the campus the rest of the time, or do you go back and forth b/w home and school? Any current students or others w/ knowledge got any thoughts?

If i wanted to work as counsel for a corporation rather than working for a law firm, how would I go about doing that? would it help it get a joint JD/MBA if I don't have a business background? Also, does anybody know of any articles/books/other websites I can check out to find our for info about in house counsel jobs? Thanks

Incoming 1Ls / So What if I Need More $$$ Than the Cost of Attendance (COA)
« on: February 08, 2008, 07:22:12 AM »
Im lookin at some of these COA's (Loyola LA specifically) and they don't seem like they'd be enough to cover me.  I mean LLS allocated like 10,500 or so for room and board, for 9 months Im assuming.  How the fucc am I gonna be able to make that work when its at least 1200-1500 a month for rent alone for a 1/1? Thats even takin food into acount.  Ive heard you can take out private loans, but I went to a couple bank sites that offer private loans and they all say that the total amt. of loans you take out can't be more than the COA?  So how does that work? Where do I get that extra $$$?

Financial Aid / Question About Student Aid Report (SAR)
« on: January 14, 2008, 01:29:13 PM »
So I filled out the FAFSA yesterday and got my SAR today in my email.  But Im confused.  All the SAR says is a summary of all my answers and it tells me that my EFC is 0.  When/how do I find out the specific aid package for each school I sent my FAFSA results to (i.e. the 2 types of stafford loans, PLUS loans, etc)? Does that come separately from each school?

when i check under my application status it says that for this school (Univ. of San Diego) a law school report has been requested and also that the report has been processed.  Does this mean I am complete at USD? I have not received any emails or anything like that.  On a side note, how long does it take for most schools to request the reports? 


Choosing the Right Law School / Southwestern Law School
« on: July 09, 2007, 02:57:59 PM »
I'm thinkin about applying here as a safety and wanted to know more about it.  Anybody got thoughts? Ive been reading some of the old threads on it and its gets nothin but hate.  Looking at the numbers, it doesnt seem THAT bad to me.  Anybody got updated info on the school and its programs and career prospects? Im trying to go to UCLA, USC, or Loyola, but just in case, Im probably gonna apply to SW.  My goal is to work in CA, preferably SoCal.  Anybody, especially current students, have any thoughts? Thanks

Choosing the Right Law School / Employment Stats For UMiami
« on: May 19, 2007, 06:39:00 PM »
anybody know why the U doesn't post employment stats on their website?  I've been checkin for the last few months and its just says check back later for more updates.  Are they embarrassed about their numbers or sumthin?

Are these the same thing, or are they two different essays you have to write?  If different, are they both required by all schools or are either of them fine?  I ask cuz ive only seen *&^% about the personal statement on schools websites

Studying for the LSAT / Does this happen to anybody on the LR section?
« on: April 12, 2007, 11:28:52 AM »
Ive been takin old tests to practice for the june lsat and notice that I always have this problem in the LR: Im streaky for some reason.  Like Ill get the first 12 or sumthin right on a section.  But then Ill get sumthin like 6 outta the next 8 wrong.  Or, Ill start off with like 3 outta 5 wrong then get like 8 in a row right, but then again get like the last 4 wrong. Why does this happen? Is it cuz the LR section is grouped by difficulty? What can I do to get around this?
