Incoming 1Ls / Recording lectures on a Mac
« on: July 13, 2008, 10:20:42 PM »
I was curious what program people used to record lectures (which I've been told is extremely helpful)...

Garageband? Something else?

I'm fairly new to using Macs, and I've never really played with the audio recording ability before. Thanks for your help!

Law School Admissions / Michigan Waitlist Update

This was just released from the Michigan Admissions Office, by e-mail and on their web site:

Law School Admissions / No reply from UCLA yet = WL/ding?

I know I'm not the only one who hasn't heard from them yet, and I've read the other threads about how they're having a strange cycle (record number of applicants and such), but does anyone think that they're still going to be sending out acceptances at this point?

Law School Admissions / Need advice about application timing
« on: October 30, 2007, 09:03:19 PM »
Right now I'm a 3.4/171, and I'm trying to figure out if I should apply right now or wait until next semester, when my GPA will be at 3.5. Is this enough of a difference to be worth the wait?

I'm applying to GULC, UCLA, Northwestern, and maybe a couple others. Thanks!

Law School Admissions / Where to apply?
« on: October 19, 2007, 10:47:47 PM »
3.4/171, with a definite upward trend my last two years (i.e., about a 2.8 as a freshman, 3.3 second year, and 3.8 since). I'm still an undergrad with a couple semesters left, and my GPA will definitely be higher.

I've acted as a legal research assistant for a media law professor. He did one of my LoR's, the other is from my boss (1 year of pretty irrelevant work experience), and both should be pretty strong.

A handful of EC's and other soft factors--college paper, officer for the College Democrats, Eagle Scout... I spent a semester in Europe (I won an award there for academics). Non-URM.

Where should I look? I'm definitely interested in UCLA/USC... do I have any shot at all at T14? I'm not terribly picky about the school...

Studying for the LSAT / Thank you to the regulars
« on: October 19, 2007, 06:49:14 PM »
To the regulars (you know who you are),

It's hard to express how much I appreciated being able to come to this forum and find people in the same boat as I was for the last 3 weeks. I'm sure you all experienced this--it wasn't easy to explain to the other people in my life how much this test meant to me, or how worried I was about the result, but everyone here understood--and I always felt better for it.

You guys are awesome, and I would be very proud to find myself sitting in a 1L class with any of you.

Thank you all again!

Studying for the LSAT / In the next two weeks I will...
« on: October 03, 2007, 08:31:08 PM »
Name one constructive thing you're going to do to take your mind off the machinations of our sadistic masters in Newtown, PA:

In the next two weeks I will reorganize my class notes and catch up on my all my LSAT-delayed reading for school.

It's not much of a goal, but it's mine!

What about yours?

Studying for the LSAT / LSAC hood rule--curiousity!
« on: October 02, 2007, 09:54:27 AM »
From the LSAC web site: "Hats/hoods. No hats or hoods are allowed (except items of religious apparel)."

How did the people at your center read this? At mine we were allowed to wear sweatshirts with hoods, as long as we kept the hoods down, whereas I've heard about other centers where hooded sweatshirts were confiscated outright.

It might be relevant to note that the hat/hood rule is not listed in the "prohibited items" section.

"Prohibited items. Candidates are not permitted to bring into the test center the following items: weapons or firearms, ear plugs, books, backpacks, handbags, papers of any kind, calculators, rulers, timers, listening devices, cellular phones, recording or photographic devices, pagers, beepers, headsets, and/or other electronic devices. Bringing prohibited items into the test room may result in the confiscation of such items by the test supervisor, a warning, dismissal from the test center, and/or cancellation of a test score by LSAC. Prohibited items may not be used during the break. LSAC and LSAT testing staff are not responsible for candidates’ belongings."

Come on, future lawyers, future judges, what do you think?
