Law School Admissions / Question for any tech people
« on: August 11, 2004, 07:09:52 AM »
Just starting using LSACD on the Web. Just curious if any of you know if I can use the Omniform plugin with Mozilla Firefox? I'm loath to go back to MSIE.

Studying for the LSAT / Consensus

It seems to me that the consensus around here is that the best way to study is to do a section a day, while doing a timed full test (with an additional section representing experimental) about once a week, is the best way of preparing for the lsat. Yay or nay?

General Off-Topic Board / Poker!!!

Taking the day off from work tomorrow and hitting up Foxwoods. I"m thinking of trying out my no limit hold em skills down there at one of those $60 buy-in "shot at a World Poker Tour championship" tables. Any gambling addicts / Chris Moneymaker wannabes have any advice for me? :)

Studying for the LSAT / Languages?
« on: July 22, 2004, 02:31:29 PM »
Just curious. Does anyone know how valuable a commodity language fluency is in today's legal job market? And which languages are most valuable? I'd imagine in today's world (and tomorrow's) language flunecy and international experience would be very important

Law School Admissions / To Fulbright or not to Fulbright?
« on: July 19, 2004, 06:00:38 AM »
OK, here's my problem. I've been taking German for 7 years now, and am about as proficient as I can be in the language without having spent any time abroad. I could continue in German next year, but I've also considered dropping it and starting Chinese due to my personal interest in that region and also its current and future importance. Another option would be to continue with the German, then do a Fulbright to Germany or Austria next year. Which of these options would be best both in terms of law school admissions and future importance to a legal career? Also, if you think doing the Fulbright would be the best option, do you think I should wait to apply to law school until AFTER I have that on my resume? (In other words, would the Fulbright make my law school app look better or would it not matter that much?) Thanks in advance!

Law School Admissions / What do you think of GW?
« on: July 15, 2004, 04:16:10 PM »
I have this idea in my head of working for the Feds either as a US attorney or working for the DOJ (or something along those lines), and I've heard that GW is unparalled for placement in the fed government--which makes sense, considering its location. Do any of you know how true this is? What's GW's reputation like outside of government employ? What do they have in terms of merit scholarships? ...In other words, gimme the dirt on GW :)

Law School Admissions / NYU scholarship?
« on: July 15, 2004, 11:57:15 AM »
What do y'all know about the Root-Tilden-Kern Scholarships at NYU? I know they're 2/3 - full tuition for those who want to go into public service, but what exactly do they look for?

Law School Admissions / Undergrad law reviw?
« on: June 02, 2004, 04:19:14 PM »
Ok, so I understand that the three most important things with law school admissions now are numbers numbers and numbers...BUT. I'm now editor-in-chief of my undergrad's law review journal (i think one of only 2 undergrad journals in the country? not sure tho). How much/little do you think that will help?
