Hi Everyone - I was looking to get connected with any law student from Rutgets who's had my visiting Con Law Professor, Mark Weiner. Anyone out there either have him or know how i can find someone who's had him?

So...Does anyone know about thier actual policies aside from the fact that alcohol is forbidden but the enforcement is lax?

Super conservative and christian arent such turn-offs considering that Pepperdine is the number 1 dispute resolution school in the country and its f-ing beautiful. Being on lock-down, though, thats something I dont want to have to deal with.

Though I'm not planning on throwing any raging parties, I'd like to have the freedom to drink where I live. Just because I'm going to law school doesnt mean I'm not going to drink scotch every now and then.

How do they enforce the rules there? Do they have RA's like in undergrad?

Thanks for the kind response. Your assumption was correct in that I am considering part time programs. If it helps, my undergrad was at BU and I can't really retake the LSATs because the 158 was what I could produce when studying full time. Now I have a job and much less time to study. Plus, I've exhausted all of the tests.

The schools in particular im thinking of are Brooklyn, NY Law, Cardozo, Fordham, St Johns, Tulane, American, Pepperdine, USD, Loyola LA.

I'm guessing at this point I should research each school to see what thier part time program is like based on professors, elidgibility to participate in student orgs, study abroad, and ease of transfering to full time. Is there anything you know about the schools I mentioned or other criteria I should look at?

Hi everyone -

At this point, I'm a 0L trying to decide where I should apply for Sept 09 admission. I'm tempted to apply for part time law schools because 1) I'll have more energy to devote to each class, 2)Its easier to get in (I have a 158/3.65), 3)I feel my competition in Law School wouldnt be as tough, 4)I'm considering keeping a FT job while attending Law School.

Aside from the fact that Part Time law school would take me more time, what are some other drawbacks? I think that even if I dont keep my full time job, I'll want to apply for PT law school for reasons 1-3. Thanks for any help.

Hi Everyone,

I've seen some postings about Pepperdine having a strict dorm policy on alcohol. Does anyone know what the rules are and how easy it is to get other types of housing around there? I went through enough trouble in my undergrad dorms to go through it again in Law School...even if this time the dorm over looks the pacific.

If it makes any difference, I've heard BU law students complaining about the law building. Its a 1960's psuedo-art high rise that seems to be somewhat faulty inside. Though some students are calling for its replacement, It probbly won't be replaced anytime soon.

I haven't heard of Cornel West but I'd say this professors fame is very-far reaching...

In my current job I'm trying to build relationships with some professors at NY law schools. Since I haven't really had class with them and will have had limited professional contact with them, will it be worth going to them for LORs? Thanks for any help...
