Studying for the LSAT / help symbolizing a clue
« on: May 28, 2007, 04:17:37 PM »
the following is a clue from Feb '99 games section [game # 2]
for some reason i am blanking out on how to symbolize it

clue--   if it is not the case that the park contains both laurels and oaks, then it contains firs and spruces.

can this be symbolized in one symbol or do you need to break it up into two? thanks

Studying for the LSAT / DEC 06' Games
« on: May 18, 2007, 06:35:43 PM »
i have a question about the last game in the Dec 06' games section.

how do you guys approach setting up this problem?
i cant really find a good way to organize it efficiently. Thanks

i tried both ordering rules set-up [numbering 1-8 and saying which letter cant go in what box, ect..] and then a chain   [b/c not one letter has a specific spot it has to be in]     but neither seemed to work well.


i was just wondering if anyone knows whether or not the ABA policy of taking the highest score will stay the same or whether it will go back to averaging? 


So my situation is the following.
I'd like to live in NYC after i graduate. I know UCONN is the best school is got into, but the general consensus is that it really does not place that well in NYC. 
Since Fordham rejected me, its pretty much down to Brooklyn and Rutgers-Newark.  The big difference is that Rutgers is 17K a yr and Brooklyn s 38K so thats a pretty massive amount of debt when i graduate  :-[  since I'll be doing pretty much all loans dad said he would give me 5 K  a yr.

I am just wondering if its worth all the money to go to Brooklyn.  If it was fordham then yes, but since only the top 15% get big law out of brooklyn I'm not sure i want to put myself under that kind of pressure to place that well.  Since rutgers would be less than half the debt, and they still place in nyc [top 5% for big law] , i wouldnt need to get big law necessarily because my debt would be about 50K total. 

so my question is --  does rutgers get into medium sized firms in NYC?  and if yes, where do they start [80k?]  if i make that much, is it reasonable to be able to pay back loans [slowly] and live somewhat comfortably
and i know rutgers places very well in NJ, but are there any areas with firms that you could live in manhattan and commute to work?  or are most of them too far south. 

i just think if i go to brooklyn then i have 140K in debt and i dont get biglaw, im in trouble. 


Choosing the Right Law School / Confusing letter from UCONN ?!?
« on: February 23, 2007, 11:48:32 AM »
I got a letter from UCOONN saying i was  accepted into the evening division [a.k.a. part time] but that they were deferring my decision for full-time, yet the form you send back to them to say your still interested in the full time program says wait list on it.  basically, i can't figure out if i am def on the waitlist for the full time program and i wont know if i am accepted til may or june, or if they havent made any decision yet and i will hear in march or april on whether or not i got into the full time.  all it said was that they were postponing a decision for the full time program but it gave no date as to when i should expect to hear back from them..  the letter was vague and confusing.
did anyone else get this?


Law School Admissions / northeastern info session
« on: February 13, 2007, 02:18:54 PM »
has anyone gone to one of their info sessions?  think it was worth going?  I'm about an 1.5 hr drive, but i figured i might wait to go to one of these until i am admitted  ;D      [or dinged!]  :-[

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / fordham..denial.
« on: February 13, 2007, 01:54:57 PM »
not that i am shocked [i guess they are picky even with part-time] but it kind of sucks to starts the cycle on a rejection  ???

they do have a quick turn around time though. i went complete only about a month ago

they sent it to my house though so dont expect to hear from them at your school address.  and no e-mail.  i guess they only e-mail acceptences.  :o

« on: January 19, 2007, 05:20:10 PM »
