Distance Education Law Schools / Santa Barbara College of Law
« on: May 23, 2008, 02:23:57 PM »
I was just looking at the CBA schools and found the Santa Barbara College of Law. According to the Princeton Review website 71% passed the bar their first attempt, and there are several mentions of santa barbara college of law alums on area law firm sites as well- so its not all solo practitioners after graduating. So it seems... Anyone know more about it???

Law School Applications / Free Law School Apps

So, I've noticed that some schools provide ways to apply for free... by waivers or free online applications...

What schools do you know of that have free apps??

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / New England/ Western New England
« on: April 23, 2008, 12:47:17 AM »
I have been looking at the LSAC site at the Mass schools, and for "safe" options.. im probably planning on applying to New England and Western New England. While, New England is in boston and that location is preferable, Western New England is in Springfield. However, Western New England (according to LSAC) gives a median grant of $14,000 per year compared to New England's $3500 per year with very simillar tuition and living allowances. And, if I remember right from LSAC I believe the employment rate is higher for Western New England.

with a median grant of one third the cost of attendance, and an employment rate over 80% Western New England sounds like a good deal...

Does anyone else know about either or these schools? applied, visited, or attending???

So, we've all heard it... yeah you want to do public interest law, BUT you can't afford it,right?

Well, as someone considering this area as a serious possibility I found this article/blog a little helpful, maybe you will too!

Law School Applications / Where to go...
« on: June 26, 2007, 10:16:36 PM »
Hey everyone, I'm now making up a reasonable list of places that Im likely to apply to..

I'm yet to take the lsat but likely to be in the low 160s.. gpa aprox 3.0/2.9 , and great LORs and extracurriculars... so probably looking at 2nd tier and 1st tier schools outside the top 20..

my preferences.. somewhere on the east coast, with public interest and/or media law focus, a joint masters in Public Administration too.. and I would like to either practice in NY or FL after graduation (I'm from FL).

So far I like Northeastern, Cardozo, Syracuse, and U of Miami... any suggestions??

Law School Applications / GPA
« on: April 04, 2007, 05:18:34 PM »
what gpa requires an addendum? How low of a gpa do you have to have that you should write one? Do you need to write one if you have less than a 3.0? 2.5? Considering that Im not applying to top 20 schools..but all top 100.

thanks for the help!
