The law forums are free, I mean a waiver on the application fee.  I thought I heard that the individual schools have the ability to give or arrange for an application fee waiver.  I may be wrong, just thought I remembered hearing that somewhere...

Seems I remember reading somewhere that by attending a LS Forum can get you some fee waivers....just go visit/talk to the school rep at their booth/desk.  Anyone know for sure?

It is just a bit confusing ttrying to figure out which school would be reaches and safeties when you dont know how you are being judged.  Like I said, a HUGE gap between 2.3 and 3.8... just trying to figure out what is realistic for me...

Dont get me wrong, its a good book but I havent found any new earth shaking strategies to have to practice.  So far it is doing a good job of teaching the concepts rather than any specific new strategies....but I'm only about 1/2 through....

You equate to someone who has not mentioned whether or not you took the LSAT yet.

hehehehe..sorry...how's that for a subconciously pretending it doesnt exist.... I am taking in October. took a review course and am scoring 158-163 on diagnostics.Am still studying madly and if I had to put money on it think I will end up with a 160.  No Top 20 aspirations...my list includes Stetson, Lewis and Clark, maybe Maryland, U of South Carolina or Florida State.

I've asked variations of this before... still not clear.... have a 2.3 total UGGPA w/ a 3.8 from degree granting insitute. The grades dragging it down are from 30 years ago.  SInce I went back in 2002 the grades have been excellent.  My problem is trying to judge my chances for admission.  Obviously they wont think of me as a 3.8 and I have been told that with the age of the grades they wont think of me as a 2.3.  What is a reasonable number for me to use in determining to which schools I should apply?  3.0?  Good solid W/E and good personal statement.  Any ideas on what I equate to?!?!?!?

Thats sort of what I thought.  Lawyer/Judge sounds great but what real value is it?  My understanding at this point is that academic letters are to be favored.  With 25 years WE I think the boss one would be important for work ethics etc. although the inhouse counsel could write the same.  Any thoughts on inhouse counsel vs. boss?
