General Board / Client Counseling Competition
« on: October 21, 2008, 01:12:10 AM »
Would it be incorrect to assume many schools have the client counseling competition as a part of their Society of Advocates programs?  Anyone out there who has competed and/or done well in this competition?  The competition seems rather ambiguous at the moment, and any insight into your past experiences is much appreciated!

Transferring / UNLV to CA?
« on: April 18, 2008, 04:32:34 PM »
In the opinion in the minds of such masters as yourselves, is there a realistic chance of transferring from UNLV to UCLA, Hastings, or USC?  Top 15% ?  Top 10%?  Top 5%?

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Tier 3 rankings
« on: April 15, 2008, 11:19:32 PM »
When USNWR came out this year, it had the tier 3 schools ranked.  When I look now, it is done alphabetically.  Does anyone have a link for the ranked version?  Thanks!!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Transferring & Class Standing
« on: April 02, 2008, 02:21:30 PM »
I understand that when transferring from school to school, grades will not be transferred.  My question is, how is a transfer student incorporated into the new school class rank?  Can a student who started at the school during 2L actually graduate with honors?  top 10%?  Number 1 in class?

Where should I go next fall? / Attorney lists?
« on: April 01, 2008, 11:57:58 PM »
This is at least mildly ignorant, but here goes:

Is there any reasonable way to see things like:  Lawyers in Boston from Quinnipiac, Lawyers in Las Vegas from Northeastern, etc.  Do schools offer this sort of information, or is it best to do a firm-by-firm search.  The latter seems a bit arduous, but what isn't at this point?  Thanks so much in advance for any help you provide!

Where should I go next fall? / Northeastern V. Quinnipiac
« on: March 29, 2008, 01:25:25 PM »
So this has been nagging at me forever (at least 2 days), and I would like some advice from any of you wise folks willing to participate.  I got accepted to Northeastern (one of my TOP choices) with no money.  I also got accepted to Quinnipiac with 25k/year (100% retention on top 1/3, 80% retention on top 1/2).  I am from Vegas, and the thought of practicing on the East coast is very exciting to me.  Boston seems like a good fit, but the $$$$ I will owe at the end is very scary.  Any suggestions or opinions?  I am still waiting on Suffolk, but I don't see them swooping in on a white horse with cash strapped on both sides for me.  Help!

So, I was sitting in class today when my phone started to silently ring.  It was Northeastern calling, and I couldn't get out of class to answer it.  It was the director of communications office calling, and they didn't leave a message!  What are the chances this was an acceptance/rejection?  I will call tomorrow to harass them, but I'm dying for insight anyone can provide.

Personal Statement / Looking for Readers!!
« on: February 12, 2008, 02:00:54 AM »
So I have been in mental anguish over the last month trying to figure out a way to hit a home-run with this personal statement, and I think I finally settled on something.  It is less WOW, and more straight forward than my previous attempts.  I am a 2.5 gpa (3.7 the last 5 semesters), and 161 lsat, so I needed to find a way to incorporate my upward trend without sounding whiny.  Did I accomplish that?  Please give me your input!  Thanks so much in advance.
