Florida State / Books
« on: August 09, 2005, 09:26:36 PM »
I went to the bookstore today after getting my ID card, and while I can't buy any books since I don't have my schedule yet, I was looking at some of the law books, and there is one that is required for 2 out of the 3 Civ Pro sections that USED is listed as $500. If I actually have to buy that book, I am going to have a serious problem. That is supposed to be our book budget for the semester!

This is the book I'm talking about:
Required Supplement: 2005 Rules of Civil Procedure with Resources for Study: Subrin, Minow, Brodin and Main: Aspen Publishers: 2005 Edition
ISBN: 0-7355-5802-7

I just hope the schedules come out tomorrow and I am NOT in one of those sections!

General Board / admission to the bar -- character & fitness?
« on: July 31, 2005, 06:01:15 PM »
I have a general question about this section of the application to the bar. In my state you have to submit every former emplyer you've had since age 16 or the last 10 years, if you're older, and you have to give a reason for leaving. I was wondering, does anyone know if they actually CONTACT these employers and check up on this stuff? I seriously doubt they'd have the time and resources to do that, but it does say the application takes 6-8 months to go through. I haven't ever been fired or anything like that, it's kind of a long story why I want to know this, but I would really like to know if they contact employers and if so, what do they ask them?

I hope that made sense. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

General Board / financial aid help!
« on: July 05, 2005, 10:52:33 AM »
OK I am in need of some financial aid help. Like a lot of you out there, I am going to be completely reliant on loans for my income. Now, my school has set up a "budget" they think you should stick to, and your financial aid is based on that. However, it seems to be a budget where you live with 6 roommates in the ghetto and eat ramen noodles. ANyway, my question is, is there any way to get more money than your school seems to think you should have? I have heard about private loans, but if your school has to certify the amount then they'll probably deny it since I've already met their recommended budget. Please help! EMail me at jamieb131@yahoo.com or post here.

Law School Rankings / Opinions on Depaul
« on: February 10, 2005, 03:27:20 PM »
I have a friend who goes to American, and she is running into the problem of competing with both GW and Georgetown students for summer internships. Since she's at the lowest-ranked law school in the DC area, it is causing her to question the merits of going there.

My question is, does anyone know if this same type of thing is likely to happen at Depaul in Chicago? Competing with both Northwestern and UChicago students... has that caused anyone any problems? does anyone know the reputation of depaul among chicago firms? you can post of email me off board at jamieb131@yahoo.com.

LSAC and LSDAS / Boston/American LSAC question
« on: December 01, 2004, 02:00:02 PM »
All of my applications are complete and the LSDAS report has been requested and sent to all the schools except Boston University and American University. I was wondering if anyone else noticed it took them a lot longer than most to request your report?

Any info would be appreciated. I really want to go to BU and the longer they take the less my chances are...

LSAT horror stories / Addendums?
« on: October 24, 2004, 11:42:35 PM »
I too took the Oct. 2 LSAT, and I scored a lot lower than expected. I don't think it's low enough to make taking the test again in December worth it... just a lot lower than the average of all my 12 practice tests.

I have heard that if you have special circumstances relating to your grades or LSAT score that you wish to explain, you can include an addendum to your application. I was wondering if anyone here knows how to go about this, how to format, etc. I took the test in the aftermath of a hurricane that damaged my house, practically destroyed my hometown, left friends homeless, etc. Also, living for 2 weeks in Florida heat with no air conditioning, no electricty or phone, clean water, or any open libraries or bookstores to go to, does not make the best studying environment. I want to explain this to the admissions committee, and I was hoping I could get some advice.

Thanks.
