Studying for the LSAT / Philosophy course... Intro to Logic
« on: August 11, 2004, 10:18:18 PM »
In another thread it was recommended that those interested in preparing for the LSAT take a Philosophy course in logic. I read this today and acted upon it. I am now taking a course that my graduation has no use for... but I am sure will be a worthy investment when it comes LSAT time.

PL-160 Intro to Logic 11-11:50 AM M-Thursday... all thanks to this forum. (its also costing me an extra $500 cause I am 2 credits over the "standard" course load of 12-16 with 18)

Anyways. Who has taken such a course and then the LSAT?

So... there is a website where you can register, post questions, and this girls former friend answers them. This is the site the news is quoting from when they talk about her former friend posting dirt on her.

Check it out

When I study I either listen to classical or jazz. Unless I am outlining, then I listen to rock or whatever. I dont have to focus as hard when I outline.

If I am writing a paper my #1 pick is Finch, my #2 is Taking Back Sunday.

what about you guys and gals?

Law School Admissions / College Radio Stations
« on: July 27, 2004, 04:52:15 PM »
Question here. I am a DJ at my college radio station. In fact, I am also a member of the Executive staff as the music director. My questions is this. If I get into a school that has a radio station, do you think the law school would restrict me from doing a show there once a week? I know many schools prevent any L1 students from having jobs, but this would be a show once a week and its volunteer.

Anyways... any experiences, opinions, and advice would be apreciated.

Studying for the LSAT / October LSAT kiss my ass
« on: July 26, 2004, 03:27:52 PM »
I have decided not to take the LSAT in October. Instead I am going to take it in June. I need more time to study and want to wait till I am done with school before I take it. Here is the time frame, lemme know if I could do anything better here.

May '05 - Graduate with Undergrad
June '05 - Take LSAT and earn a bomb ass score
July '05 - Ready all my applications and letters of recommendation
August '05 - Apply to schools.

I will, of course, be applying for the next year.



Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Why is Cooley still ABA?

Also, Michigan's former governor is a Cooley graduate. Cooley has a fine reputation from what I hear here in MI.

Granholm is a Cooley grad? Wow, I had no idea. She pledged her endorsement to Kerry early on and her husband has ties with him. So basically, if Kerry gets the nomination you can be sure he will be offering her a position once its time for the gubernatorial race. If a Cooley grad can win the race for the Governor of one of the largest states in the Country... and possibly get on the President's cabinet, Cooley is alright with me. :)

* aboynoir decides to put Cooley as one of his backup schools to apply to

Law School Admissions / Introduction, I am new to the board
« on: July 24, 2004, 08:39:46 PM »
So I just registered today and thought I would introduce myself seeing as how, after browsing the board for 2 hours, I believe I will be a regular.

My name is Jason and I am a 23 year old senior English Literature major at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI. My hobbies include music, both listening and making, reading, watching movies (film minor), consuming alchohol ;) and other typical college student activities.

I have long entertained the idea of becoming a lawyer. Only recently did I make a solid decision that this is what I would pursue. I found this site looking for information on how to better prepare myself for the LSAT. Upon completing my undergrad I should be graduating with about a 3.15. This is no real reflection of my inteligence, just the effort I put forth. My first 3 years in college were spent partying, dropping classes, etc. Now I pull all A's and B's :) I am being honest here as I have found the rest of you seem to do so as well. Besides, I have nothing to hide. Except... the dead bodies in the basement.

Anyhow, I plan on taking my LSAT sometime this year and attending a nice law school. I would like to think I will get into a Tier-1 school but I dont know. It may be Tier-2... may even be Cooley, lol.

Anyhow, I look forward on learning more about this whole law school process with you all.
