what other schools are u applying to?  say, i plan to apply to school A and B.  On School A's app I report that I plan to apply to School B.  Then a few weeks after after my app as been submitted, i get some fee waivers and I decide to apply to School C and D.  How do I let school A know, so I am not in violation of anything.  If u notice, schools have u sign after reading a statement that says you will report any changes to the info contained on the application.  Can I just email the adcomm to tell them of the changes and that I am applying to Schools C and D?

Black Law Students / FAMU (Florida A & M in Orlando)
« on: November 22, 2005, 06:46:53 AM »
Are there any firms hiring FAMU grads or are the majority going into public sector, working for their family or working for their employer who is holding a position for them upon passing the bar?  I have no legal connections, but the in-state tuition and location of the school makes it very tempting.  I also notice on their app, they ask for an essay on what public service means to the applicant.  Does anyone have any info, or are all of their prospective students, current students and new grads not reading this discussion board?  Any info would be appreciated.

Choosing the Right Law School / need opinion on stetson vs. florida coastal

If your goal is to work in a medium sized law firm in Florida,  and Florida Coastal offers a 10k/year scholarship, would it be worth moving to Jacksonville?  Or just pay the full tuition at Stetson?  I can commute to Stetson, but Fl Coastal will require me to move away from my family and rent a studio or get a roommate while my husband maintains the mortgage and expenses on the house. in Tampa.  Tuition at both schools are about the same except the tuition at Fl Coastal is less once the scholarship is factored in. 

If a school has requested the academic summary report from LSAC, and they sent it out today, how long will it take until it arrives at the school?  Are they emailing it as an attachment, or is it via snail mail?  If a school is requesting a report now, does it mean that they are going to make a decision in the next few weeks?

If I mailed out my app today with PS and fee via snail mail, Stetson would recieve it by Wed the 19th.  My LOR's and LSAT were completed over the summer.  Does anyone know what to expect as far as how long before I go complete and, how long for them to make a decision since I am early?

Law School Admissions / ? for those using snail mail

For those old-fashioned types who are actually mailing in their apps, do you send it certified, delivery confirmation, or just plain old first class mail?  I would think plain old first class postage would be enough, but is anyone out there doing more than that to ensure the school recieves the app?

In my entire life I have only met two attorneys of Indian descent-one was an immigraton attorney and the other was a friend of mine five years my senior.  I rarely see any Indian attorneys in FL.  So how can people say Indians aren't URM?  I see white, hispanic  and black attorneys way more often than asians. 

Law School Admissions / Stetson question/scholarships/part-time
« on: August 26, 2005, 08:23:58 AM »
I am a nontrad with a grad degree who bombed the LSAT.  I scored 10 points below my lowest practice exam and got a 151.  With  ugpa of 3.1, i plan to apply to Stetson for fall 06.  Stetson is a private school but the only one that is local in this part of FL. Besides wondering if I will even get in, how generous are their scholarships?  I know that they give diversity scholarships and merit scholarships.  I know that I am definitely out for merit, but I was wondering how they divvy up diversity scholarships.  They have a broad definition of "diversity"-can mean age, SES, linguistic, cultural etc.   

Law School Admissions / apply now or wait a year?

I took the LSAT once in June and scored enough to get into the local tier 3 school.  As a non-trad, I was hoping to get a merit scholarship to off-set the studetn loans I already have from grad school.  If I apply for this cylcle and take the LSAT again but after acceptances are mailed out, will the school take the newer LSAT score into consideration (especially if the second score is a big jump up from the first)? Will that make any difference on any scholarships I may receive? 

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan Test Drive question
« on: July 06, 2005, 05:49:35 PM »
I took this Kaplan practice test at their center last year.  It is the free one they give anyone who is interested and even had an experimental section.  DOes anyone know which LSAT exam it is or if it is one of those made up tests from Kaplan?  Also, s it harder than the real LSAt (if the one they give is in fact not a real LSAT)?
