Studying for the LSAT / Re: XOXO?
« on: October 21, 2005, 02:24:02 PM »
I'm still trying to figure out why Rufus is hating on the Boston-New England area. Some people have other things going on in their life besides law school that dictate geography.

I'm not hating on the area.  I just think that if your list of schools includes Harvard AND Suffolk, you could use some help with your application strategy.  After get your LSAT, ask for some advice on XO.  They really can be helpful.

Yet couldn't get any money from Southwestern?

One thing I like about XO is that people lie much less.  Seriously.  The fully anonymous format gives much less incentive for people to make things up. 

Judging by NukeLaw's LSN profile, at least a few of you could really use some real advice from XO.


----Since he had a 162 on the LSAT, I think he should then follow that with stating he owes his spot to pigmentation.-----  -


He made up the 162 - anyone who knows Dodger from the old days know that he scored a 179.

Retake the LSAT and submit an updated score.

Probably too late for this cycle but might help someone in the future.

I would also like to point out that I know several People who turned down admissions offers from T14 and "better" schools Including Georgetown to attend Touro.

This has to be flame.

Why?  I turned down admissions at some top UG schools because I just couldn't afford it with the prospect of law school debt on the horizon.  If someone planned on going into PI or government service they may have decided G'Town debt just wasn't worth it.  It's not the decision everyone would make, but I'm sure people people whos top concern isn't name value turn down higher ranked schools all the time.   



UG is a lot different than law school.

If you can get into GT you can get a full ride to several T1 schools.  No one who gets accepted to Georgetown ends up at Touro.

graduated w/ honors from Michigan
attending law school in the fall...not sure where yet.

IMO going to Touro will actually hurt your job prospects.  UM is Nationally respected as a top UG.  Unless you majored in child developement you'll do better and have less debt by skipping Touro.

As a pampered suburban brat, my parents wouldn't allow me to go out in Detroit when I was younger.  I'd still go there occasionally, but I'd have to keep that from my parents.  I came to learn that there were some really scary areas in Detroit, but there were also some areas that didn't seem too bad.  For example, I used to think that the area around Hart Plaza was okay.  After the shootings at last years fireworks, however, I became a little weary of that area, as well.  Now, I'll only go to Detroit if it is absolutely necessary to do so.

To give Detroit some credit, I went to 5th Avenue (nightclub) in downtown Detroit over this past Memorial Day weekend, and was pleasantly surprised.  The club was actually really nice and classy (much nicer than 5th Avenue in downtown Royal Oak) inside with a pretty decent, non-scary crowd (not at all what I would've expected for a club in downtown Detroit).  I still prefer to go out to the clubs and bars in the suburbs, but if it came down to it, I wouldn't mind going back to 5th Ave. in Detroit at all.

As for Kaplan's Law School Forum, it's not even in Detroit; it's in Southfield (an Oakland County suburb).  People might be surprised to learn that the Detroit suburbs are some of the most safe and prosperous areas in the country.  The majority of Oakland County, for example, is really nice.  You really shouldn't be too worried about going there.

If I were you, though, I'd go to one of LSAC's law school forums over one of Kaplan's.  I don't know, but I'd be worried that Kaplan's forum would be little more than an advertisement for one (or more) of their overpriced classes.
 

When I went to high school in Royal Oak, Southfield had gangs.  HTH

Read Tucker Max's "Miss Vermont Story" to get an idea of the quality of the students at Stetson.  Ms. Vermont actually went there.
