I had a post up here a month ago and had a bunch of interest, but only a few actual bites, so here i am looking for more.
I have started a blog at www.lawschoolstory.com
to document the experience of law school for a few of us starting 1Ls, and i am looking for just a couple more
people that would like to contribute to it in order to keep it lively. Anything goes, as long as it relates to your reasons for going and LS experience in general - and that we maintain a PG environment.
If any of you would like to contribute as authors, please pm me and i'll let you know how to sign up. Of course we would appreciate it if you could post often, but I realize that during the next few months we will all be swamped, so write as much as you can.
Check it out at www.lawschoolstory.com
to see what it's like so far.
Thanks in advance,
UC DAVIS 2010!

In the spirit of LSD (as this site has been a wonderful way for me to idle away my precious hours these last months), I am about to launch a blog on which i plan to discuss my upcoming law school experience as it comes and goes. I am also interested in finding out if any of you would like to participate as regular authors (what regular means, i'm not quite sure - perhaps a post or two week unless we are drowning in homework , which is likely).
I see it as a nice way to blow off steam, break away from homework, give my grandparents something to read, and possibly help someone in our shoes these past few months make a decision about where to toss their money.
Let me know if any of you are interested, or would like more information. if not, i'll get started and send Grandma the URL.

I am having tough time deciding between Case Western and U. Connecticut. If any of you are familiar with either, or are making a similar decision, I would love to hear your thoughts.
I am interested in soft IP, tech/media/internet business organizations and business planning.
Case w/17k year (approx 110,000 in loans).
I like their IP program, 2 clinics and a wide variety of non Patent classes.
UConn w/10k year + in state for years 2-3 + 15k grant for the first year (approx 80,000 in loans).
Their IP program is growing with the start up of their IP/Entreprenurial clinic and they have a decent number of IP classes.

I just received a scholarship from Kent contingent upon keeping a 3.2 gpa. Is this approximately a top 1/3 placement at kent?
How tough is their grading curve.
Any help would be wonderful, thanks in advance.

I am considering applying to both, or either, of these schools. I am interested to hear what any of you who have visited, heard about, or studied there have to say about the differences. Tuition is not even close in cost, and if you have info about who gives more money out that would be helpful. USNWR rankings are similar.
I am interested in the non-patent IP and commercial law areas of study.

I hope this doesn't seem like a stupid question, but i just received my grades for this last semester (my last) of undergrad. They are high and would raise my overall GPA slightly. Would it be helpful or beneficial to send the updated transcripts to LSAC? To the schools independantly? Would LSAC send updates for the files at the schools to which i have applied?
I haven't been able to find an answer elsewhere.

I hope this will be pertininent to others as well as myself.
Which schools are known to provide assistance (financial, lodging help, etc) to admitted students to enable visits to their schools? I have heard that W&L helps financially on occasion, are there any others that anyone is aware of?
I am planning on contacting the schools that accept me personally, but in the meantime i thought a thread on the topic might be helpful.
