Greetings W&L asders,

Are any of you bringing your significant other to the ASD(03/28-29)?
I know guests are allowed(according to the ASD invitation), but is it normally acceptable to bring your gf/bf/wife/husband?

Just curious.

Law School Admissions / Asking for MORE MONEY $$$
« on: March 13, 2008, 07:00:25 PM »

I received a scholarship from Washington and Lee and am pretty set on attending($5,000 yr). There is just one problem. I honestly believe I won't be able to afford the amount of debt I will assume after graduation.

Is it impolite to ask for more money? W&L only offers scholarships(merit-based) and loans.
I really need more least another 5k.

Is anyone else in a similar position?

Incoming 1Ls / Website listing FIRM OCI at Particular Schools
« on: March 13, 2008, 02:20:19 PM »
Somebody listed it on one of the boards here and I can't remember the link/website.

The website included all the firms that conducted OCI's at all of the ABA approved law schools. I believe it also included all the firms that have hired law students from a particular school.

The way the site worked:

You click on your school and it shows a long list of employers(alphabetically). If you click on one of the employers--it lists how much they pay for a full-time position, for summer associate, benefits etc. It includes other information as well...basically all of the company information.

Another option(contained on this website):

It provides a list of states and the number of firms that conduct OCI's at your school.

It's killing me that I can't find it!

Anyone have a reasonable estimate.
I'm going to have to pay off some serious loans.

Emory & WUSTL for me.

A bit surprising given my other acceptances. 

Law School Admissions / Is a preemptive LOCI a Bad Idea????

I'm thinking about sending a few LOCI's to schools that have been pending since October.
Is this a good move?

Law School Admissions / LOCI for Pending Schools
« on: February 28, 2008, 01:29:33 PM »
Greetings Folks,

I saw a post on here earlier about preemptive LOCI's and have a few questions.

A.)What should they consist of since technically there is yet to be a decision made?
B.)Is it effective?
C.)Is it allowed? If so...will some schools get a bit annoyed by such persistence?
D.)Does anyone have any copies that I can take a look at?

Law School Admissions / APPLYING TO BU--the day before the deadline.
« on: February 28, 2008, 11:04:38 AM »
Is it a reasonable move if you want in?
Or is it pointless to apply this late?
What are your thoughts on late applications in general + this particular example with Boston University.

This should be interesting.

There is a lot of talk about the T-25 on LSD.
Let's see what people think is the best contender in this group.
