Why would a law firm have mandatory retirement? As a lawyer, while your mind is still working you can still do your job.

Read Courtroom 302 and if you still want to work in Criminal law more power to you. The book is really good.
We read this book in my 1L crim law class.

If you want to stay in washinton or seattle you are going to be behind anyone from UW.
Oregon and LC place just about equally well in portland and both have some reach into washington.
Gonzaga and Willamette are just about equal, with a slight edge to Gonzaga (my view).
how do law schools factor in credit card debt for entering 1 ls? Do they expect you to pretty much have no credit card debt going in? How do you guys manage to pay bills with no job while in law school?
Pay it off before you start law school.
Get a car that you don't have to make payments on.
Be financially responsible.
Schools generally provide enough loan money for a student to get by, ie modest rent, food, utilities transportation, etc. Not for "extras."
Remember for every dollar you borrow, you will be paying back at least two perhaps three dollars.
By "best", I simply mean the school that I will come out of with the highest chance of obtaining a quality job (I plan on criminal law), I can only assume the rankings tie into this fairly tightly.
It's more important to go a school in the region that you want to practice for crim law.
Where should I go next fall? / Re: Where to Go, focused in state of Texas but willing to consider surrounding area« on: November 09, 2008, 01:58:36 PM »
Texas Tech is probably the best school you can get into. UT, UH, Baylor, and SMU are going to reject you based on your lsat score.

Same rejections as above, but I think you would be waitlisted at more than just Oregon.
Possibly rejected at Oregon.
155 is very borderline.
