Incoming 1Ls / So I took the advice of this board...
« on: July 30, 2007, 03:31:16 PM »
well from some of you on this board, and read Law School Confidential. It strongly suggests briefing a case by just highlighting each component of the case (facts, holding etc.)in a different color in the casebook... therefore you save time by not re-writing it when it is all right there AND you just go right to the outlining. Has anyone tried this? Did it work for you?

Thanks in advance.

Choosing the Right Law School / How much will it help?

Hey everyone --

I was recently waitlisted at IU Bloomington. My neighbor received his JD from IU-B and is now a dean at Cooley. When he heard I was waitlisted, he wrote a letter (which I'm not supposed to know about) to IU-B recommending me. Apparently it was a very nice, detailed letter. (I interned with him when he was in a firm and helped him with many of his cases so he knows a bit about my work ethic). My question is, do you think this letter will have the pull I need to get off the waitlist? Right now I am all set to go to Penn State - I have housing, my loans are all underway, etc. I would literally pick up and move to IU the day before school if it came down to it.

What do you think?

Choosing the Right Law School / Part-time... to start
« on: April 25, 2007, 06:36:37 PM »
I applied to the full-time program at Penn St. and got into part-time. As long as I have a B average and 11 credits after first semester, I can transfer to full-time for spring semester. However, the Director of Admissions just emailed me and said that most students start full-time the second year.

I'm kind of dreading the whole part-time thing. I really want to graduate on time, and although mathematically I still could, I don't want to take too many credits in my subsequent semesters to catch up and watch my GPA suffer.

Anyone else having the same problem? Are there any other issues with being a part-time student that I should know?


My LSAC report was requested November 10.... I've called and they say it is in review. Should I be worried? My LSAT of 155, GPA of 3.6 and extras SHOULD give me a good chance, but I'm starting to wonder... is anyone else still waiting??
