Incoming 1Ls / Student/Faculty boundaries
« on: December 31, 2004, 06:54:52 AM »
I remember some secret inter-dating between students and faculty during high school.
But now at college, the boundary lines between students and faculty seem much more 'fuzzy'- both the faculty and students regularly cross the line into each other's territory.
Although it makes a very friendly atmosphere between students and faculty, maintaining the strictly professional relationship is not always easy.

I am wondering if it is common at all of the colleges, or am I the only one who sees the problem?

Incoming 1Ls / Undergrad majors
« on: December 24, 2004, 02:49:45 AM »
I know that law schools require only that undergrad studies are predominantly academic, but what
are the majors of the students here?

i.e. business, mathematics, science, english, etc?

Law School Admissions / Please clarify and verify
« on: November 07, 2004, 07:59:19 AM »
I am a second year undergrad about to receive my first (of two) AS degree. I have already enjoyed a couple of sessions with the LSAT prep books, and begun receiving law school catalogs.

I keep a printed copy of "Timetable for the Law School Application Process" posted in my 'home office.' The first instruction is "See your prelaw adviser as soon as you think you may be interested in attending law school." My college seems unprepared to give much assistance or counsel in preparing for Law school, so I am learning much of this on my own.
For instance, when I mentioned my desire for law school, I got 'one of those looks.' I actually have to explain the LSDAS and LSAC. I am possibly the campus's only student who is preparing for law school.

I will complete the two AS degrees during 2005 and then transfer during August for my BS -- at which time I will be considered as a junior. Does that mean the following spring (of 2006) I should register for and take the June LSAT, and possibly again for October when I will be a senior?
