Studying for the LSAT / Anyone didnt improve diagnostic that much??
« on: September 17, 2006, 11:36:28 AM »
i am just about to do my diagnostic and i am scared to do it, thinking that if i get a really bad score that i wont have a chance at a top school. i am pretty fluent in english, but it is not my native language. so i was wondering if anyone couldnt improve their diagnostic that much

Where should I go next fall? / class rankings
« on: September 09, 2006, 01:52:44 PM »
i am at a foreign uni, and they dont use the 4.0 gpa system. my grade is around 5.8/7.0 where 7.0 is equal to 100%. i am top 5% or 10% of my class(i gotta check my recent standings). according to the LSDAS, i think that if an A is equal to a 90%, i might not even get a 3.0 (and almost everyone in my class wont even get a 2.0). Does HYS take under consideration the fact that i am at top of my class and that they use a different grading system. would a 175 lsat get me into HLS??

Law School Applications / what are your plans for after law school???
« on: April 19, 2004, 10:51:08 AM »
hey guys, the more I read about what paths a fresh lawyer can take after law school, the more I get confused.
So, tell me, what makes more money, to be a partner in a BIGLAW, or practicing solo, like in malpractice (getting that fatty one third). I mean, John Edwards, took the later path, and his furtune is estimates between 15-64 millions. I mean, i guess that even if you are a partner in wachtell you may not make that amount of money in that little amount of money(he is in his forties for God's sake).
But isnt being a solo lawyer(of course after some years in a firm) a little risky. Is it again a take it all or nothing case?????
thanks guys


Law School Applications / some improvements,
« on: April 12, 2004, 09:36:49 AM »
well, i know that everyone likes this forum, including me, but since i know that andrew keeps updating his forum, i guess that my suggestions won't hurt.
1. when the one is signed as a guest and decides to log in in order to leave a comment to a thread that he/she is reading, the one is taken back to the homepage, and has to surf all the way back, and actually search for the thread that he/she wanted to post the reply in, and sometimes, it becomes such a pain in the butt that the one doesn't post at all. of course this doesn't apply for those who are signed in 24/7. but for those who aren't signed all the time, and use different computers, it is really not practical.

2. there should be a way to let the user know where he/she has posted lately, so that he/she can know when someone replies to his/her reply.

3. have you thought about a chat room. let's say that we arrange special dates for discussing a special topic. I guess it would be cool

anyways, i know that this year's application process is over, so i guess this could be nice stuff to be added for next year.

i don't know, but is there anyone else who has some kinda suggestions.

anyways, this is way the best law forum in the web.

Law School Applications / Confess!!!
« on: April 10, 2004, 10:10:25 AM »
Hey guys, I am starting this new forum called confess. I know it sounds ridiculous, but i thought that it may be cool.
What it is about, well, in there people are gonna put some confessions, you know, their little dirty secrets. I just hope that it works.
Anyways, i just used a free forum. If the forum becomes popular then i will let it be something more pro, something more like this forum.
Anyways guys, tell me what do you think , does it sound cool?
