Choosing the Right Law School / SSS from U. of Chicago
« on: March 19, 2007, 01:39:05 PM »
Numerous U of Chicago people accepted are listing on LSN that they have received money awards.  Amounts range from $20,000 to over $100,000 over the three years.  Is this money strictly merit or does need enter into it?  If it's strictly merit, do they consider adding money based on demonstrated need later on, or is any money from here on going to be required to be in the form of a loan?  And if it's merit, how do they set the amount, according to LSATs and GPAs or more subjectively based on how enthused they are about you as a prospect based on the whole package?  Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Any consensus on Feb LSAT test scores?

Any consensus on these test scores - did they track higher, same, or lower than recent prior tests?  Underlying question is: are the latest results from Feb. test takers going to make it harder or easier or no difference at all for those who did not take Feb. test and are hanging pending, hold, or waitlist?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Next rankings - predictions
« on: February 13, 2007, 03:44:42 PM »
Someone just mentioned that the new US News rankings come out soon - March.  Any predictions for changes?
For no good reason but my gut/own preferences/wild speculation, I predict some or all of the following may happen:
Harvard replaces Stanford at #2.  (I would like but probably won't happen since Stanford like Yale can more easily maintain lofty entrance standards because of small size.)
Chicago moves to #5 with NYU sliding to #6.
The threeway tie between Michigan, Berkeley, and UVA is broken as one of them, probably Berkeley, moves up - perhaps tying with Penn.
Georgetown moves up to #13 with Cornell sliding to #14.
William and Mary moves up propelled by its apparent heavy use of $ to attract higher scoring students.
What do you predict?
