Incoming 1Ls / Typical costs of 1st year fall semester books
« on: July 25, 2005, 05:10:51 PM »
I refuse to believe the estimated cost of books per semester is $500.  Can anyone confirm or debunk this?

It might be good for my debt to credit ratio in the long run, but I think this might make my credit score drop at first.  What does everyone think?

Financial Aid / Student loans for other things?

If I end up having some money left over, is it OK to simply put my money in a CD or invest it in some other way?  What are the implications?  Anybody plan on doing this?

Incoming 1Ls / Medium sized law firms VS. BIGLAW...

With all the talk about BIGLAW, I canít help but think about the lifestyle of those in medium sized law firms?  How's the salary, how are the billable hours compared to BIGLAW?

What cons are there besides the extra year to finish and going to class at night?

For those who are going to school in Los Angeles, in what area do you plan to live?

Oh, and this would help those who are currently looking in any major city:

Anyone recommend this?  I'm fairly certain I can score higher, and I've been accepted to one of my backups elsewhere.  Is the trouble worth it in an attempt to improve my file?  It's been some months since I've looked at an LSAT question.  The school in question is Southwestern in Los Angeles.  The waitlist is not ranked, they will re-review the applications as spots open up, and the list itself goes on till August (a week before school starts to be exact).

I was waitlisted with 2.9/154.


Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Southwestern Waitlist
« on: April 27, 2005, 02:34:38 PM »
I found out about my waitlist status last night online, and I have yet to get the letter in the mail.  Does anyone know what the actual letter says?  Does it say when they'll make the decision to take people off the list, does it also indicate the likelihood of being accepted off the waitlist?  Has anyone actually tried calling and asking someone there that question?

I'm thinking about just committing to Cal Western since I know I can't bank on the waitlist at Southwestern.  Then again, I can't bank on the possibility of transferring from Cal Western either.  To make matters worse, should I go to Cal Western, I'll be living with a group of friends, and they're looking for the 4 bedroom house as I write.  Very confused.

Incoming 1Ls / Difference between Planet Law School I and II
« on: April 22, 2005, 06:46:25 PM »
Is the only difference between Planet Law School I and II is that part II is an updated version?

Law School Admissions / How is the competition in a tier 4 school?
« on: February 21, 2005, 12:50:40 PM »
Is it easier compared to the higher tiers?  Or does it not make any difference due to tier 4 specific factors (forced curve, etc etc).
