Choosing the Right Law School / Who's with me?

Choosing the Right Law School / dreams that tease
« on: February 26, 2005, 06:44:35 AM »
I had a dream I got accepted to a school I really want to go to. I was going through that big white envelope when *puff* I woke up.
Isn't that cruel?

Does anyone know if the Dean's Scholarships at case just cover tuition, or do they cover tuition and living expenses (or books?).

I'm moving to Canada.  I swear... if this stupid ass country re-elects Bush, I will concede that Canadians are smarter than Americans and move to Vancouver to live with my mother-in-law.  And all those who know how I feel about Canada... well, you understand what a grave statement this is.

Law School Admissions / Let it go already...

URMs make up only about %15 of any given law school.  And they score only about 8% less on the LSAT than non-URMs. Also, I'm guessing at least 1/3 of the URMs they admit would likely get in even if they weren't URMs. So we're talking about 10% of admitted applicants there.  The affect A.A. has on your chances of getting into any particular school is so insignificant it's hardly worth bitching about even if you don't agree with it.

Law School Admissions / Tricky LOR question
« on: August 12, 2004, 04:58:37 PM »
I have two good LORs.  And I know that's all I need, but I could get one more that I'm not sure if it will be good or average or what.  But it would be from a big-shot (the head of the department where I'm getting my masters).  So should I take the gamble?  I'm currently working for him so he does know me... I just don't know how much he likes me.  I get mixed signals.  He's hard to read.

Studying for the LSAT / Oct. Retakers... we can get extra time
« on: July 03, 2004, 05:13:41 AM »
If you read the accommodated testing forms carefully, it includes lack of sufficient intelligence as a psychological handicap for which you can get more time. Seriously!

Isn't that funny? So I think those of us who bombed the June test should apply for extra time, what do you think?   ;)

(note: in case you can't tell, I'm kidding... except about what LSAC says about intelligence... that's actually true)
