If you're waitlisted at school X but never get off the waitlis and as a result end up attending school Z, would it then be easier to transfer to the school that waitlisted you initially, school X?

Incoming 1Ls / How difficult can it really be... seriously?
« on: March 16, 2009, 10:17:05 AM »
As many other soon-to-be 1Ls can attest to,entering Law School is frightening. This is in great part due to the stigma associated with Law School. The stigma is often perpetuated in blogs, websites and threads like this one and we all know what it sounds like. "Law School is nothing like college and is not for everyone", "if you were a straight A student in college, it don't mean jack in law school", " Law School is the most difficult thing you will encounter in your whole life". So my question is how difficult can it really be? In college i have taken constitutional law, civil procedures, criminal law etc. I have done very well in all of these classes. It seems as though in every class there are cases you study to try and understand particular issues and in the end of the semester you are tested on those issues with different set of facts of course (hypotheticals). So what's the difference? In response to the question i posed, i am expecting for my fears to be validated because i am very well aware that Law School is different from college. I would just love to know how?

The school that i will be attending requires that we submit tests electronically. So has this ever happened to anyone. can you opt to take a hand written test instead?

Law School Admissions / does the bar look at your applications?

Does the bar look at your applications when reviewing your character. look for discrepancies between them and then count it against you or do they only look at the application to the school you have enrolled?
