Isn't a 2.97 really bad for a T14? Most T14 schools have a very high median ... generally around 3.2.

My daughter goes to a T4.
Get a f-ing life!
If i have a mediocre GPA and rank (just outside of the top third) but i'm in at law review, what do my job prospects look like if i'm applying for biglaw? i know a lot of these firms prefer law review/journal but they also want a high GPA/rank. Is anyone in the same situation or know of anyone with a similar problem?
You can graduate dead last in your class at Harvard and still be employable.
Also whispering the answers or "no, no, no" to yourself when someone is bombing being called on.
Yes this is sort of the Belmont Stakes in the triple crown of being as annoying as possible. I have the great honor of taking a night time summer class with alot of non-traditional 1L's. My classroom neighbor may be the worst ever.
Raising your hand 4 times per class session and starting every comment with "I just want to be sure I have this right..." (and then repeating what the professor just said).
And spilling that Dr. Pepper and NOT cleaning it up. We're you raised in a barn? I witnessed such a transgression.
I'm still trying to figure out why so many people are annoyed by roll bags. I have one because I refuse to hurt my back; attempting to carry all of your law-school books on your back is quite stupid, if you ask me.
Are you full time or part time? If you work full time I think it's safe to assume that you go to school part time.
As a part time student, do you have 4 or 5 classes per semester? I would think 4, but maybe 5 including a writing class or some sort.
Do you have all these classes in one day? If the answer is yes, I can understand why you would carry all your books at once, but I believe the answer to this question is no.
If you're going to school on a day when you have say crim and torts...what good are your civil procedure and contract text books?
The rollie-bag is indicative of weakness and/or old-ness. Both qualities are frowned upon in law school.
Please don't be the person with the rolly bag who rolls over everyone's feet.
Second. I contemplated an SBA run with a very simple platform: "Execute those with rollie-bags."
To the OP: any standard backpack with a laptop sleeve will be fine. Lockers are fine, but the backpack is your friend.

I have experience in brick and mortar education and with online education. I am about to begin studies at Concord University Online Law School, my 4th graduate degree, and am very enthusiastic about what I have already observed with regards to the results-based online education.
This is correct. The problem lies in the fact that Concord has much less stringent admission requirements than ABA schools. Because of that fact, Concord attracts alot of people who are unable to even gain admission to an ABA school. It is likely that the people that "attend" Concord and do well would have performed similarly at an ABA school. However, these people that attend Concord and do well are the exception and not the rule. They attend because of very special circumstances that are unrelated to their cognitive capabilities. This leaves us with the overwhelming majority of students at Concord who are essentially subpar. Sad but true. Don't believe me? Check their bar passage rate.
I honestly believe that one day Concord and others like it will be on par with most ABA schools outside the very elite institutions. That is not currently the case.

People that call themselves doctors without a medical degree are egotistical blowhards. Same goes for people that use an initial for their first name.
