Studying for the LSAT / CHEAP lsat materials for sale in Boston
« on: June 09, 2004, 11:25:24 AM »
I am moving and need to get rid of all my old lsat stuff. Most is from princeton review and the course I took through them last year. Most has writing and notes in it but some doesn't have any writing at all. There is a lot of good stuff here. I would guess the retail value of everything combined is at least 500 bucks, but I'll sell the stack of everything for $35. I'd rather sell it cheap to someone to practice instead of throwing it away. I live in the Boston area. Email me if you are interested.

No, BU uses various small rooms. Mine was actually on the top floor, had a window view of the Boston skyline, and had nice swivel chairs with desks. Quite impressive. Too bad my score wasn't  :o

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Case Western v Akron

This is really not even a question. Case is a borderline tier 1/ tier 2 school (around 50th) and Akron is 4th tier. If you get into Case, go there.

No question, go to BU. It's a top 25 school.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: BLS vs Hofstra ($$)

Yeah, Vinny went to something like "Brooklyn Academy of Law" -- not the same as BLS

That is a really tough call. They are both such good schools. I would say it comes down to personal preference. Richmond's campus is GORGEOUS and doesn't really have an urban feel to it. American's campus, however, is urban. Which do you see yourself being happier in? If money is an issue, I would take Richmond definitely.

Hofstra is quickly moving up in the rankings. I agree, NYC is extremely close and this is a huge advantage. If you don't want to live in LI, then live in Queens or Brooklyn and to the reverse commute. A lot of Hofstra law students do that. Some even move in Manhattan second and third years. I'm planning on attending in the fall and am looking at apartments both in LI and Queens because I'm not too pro on LI either, but I would still consider living there, at least for the first year.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: BUSL List

I know two people who got off the list this year already. Send in a letter of intent and a rec. You have a good chance. BU is really good about the waiting list.

Wait listed at Catholic, Brooklyn, U San Fran, and Richmond. Also "on hold" til late april at Case.

Who do these admissions people think they are?

For what it's worth, Hofstra moved up a TON in the US News rankings. Last yr it was third tier and this year it is #89. It's quickly getting better and better.
