I am already starting to prepare on how the heck i'm going to bring all my stuff to indiana university- Indianapolis. Does anyone have any kind of suggestions for moving to a school decently far away?? Indianapolis is like a 10drive from me!! I was thinking about renting a truck, but probibly will just bring the bar minimum and then buy new stuff while i'm there. What is everyone else going to do that may have to move far away?? I am visiting the school on March 25th. I'v already looked up plane tickets. It is only a 2hr flight from philly and about $250 a ticket. What i would like to do is just take a plane there when I start school and then just buy things while i'm there, but that might be more expensive than renting a truck or driving there with my father's trailblazer. I am also thinking whether I want my car while i'm at school, What is everyone else doing? I'v never left home like this to attend school??????  ??? ??? I could really use the good advice- Gracias

Someone please explain this to me. I have read a bit about it, but would still like some others imput on it. Gracias

Law School Admissions / Anyone have reports requested from Duquesne??
« on: November 09, 2005, 10:19:01 AM »
Duquesne still hasn't requested reports from me, they told me they have recieved my application but have yet to request reports. Anyone else in the same situation with other schools?? or Duquesne?

Anyone else still waiting for schools?? I'm waiting for Duquesne, John Marshall-chicago, Nova Southeastern, St. Thomas, Barry and Florida Coastal School of law. Have any of you had these schools request reports for  you, or are still waiting? Anyone still waiting on any other schools?

23 different schools and counting!!! Additionals are welcome, also I would like to know the schools that I have the best chance.  all I know my numbers suck, so please don't put me down on them. I can't do anything about them now. I hate the LSAT!! Gracias

Que pasa all. Check out my lsn website and let me know if there are any other schools that I can have a decent shot at. Right now i'm up to 23 schools, can't tell you how much fun I had for the past 2 days filling out all those apps. Hopefully one or two will bite.  Thanks for the imput ;D and pleae no need for put downs.   

I just thought it would be informing to make of list of schools that only ask for convictions of felonys and misdemenors, for those like me that have made a regrettable mistake in their lives. (DUI - expunged). It could just be of some interest to certain individuals that:

NCCU only asks for convictions
Stetson says you can say no if you have it expunged, but will have to provide a copy of expungment.
Hofstra- expungment copy
FSU- expungment copy
Pittsburg- Expungment copy

See if anyone can make this list a little longer, while browsing through some applications.

Law School Admissions / How binding is a Law school early disicion?!!
« on: October 07, 2005, 12:03:43 PM »
Hofstra U says in their application for early dicision that If I am accepted I MUST attend their school and cancel any other pending applications. Hofstra is a good school and I definately would go there, but It isn't my first, second, or even their choice, if I got admitted at any of the other schools I like more, i would rather go there. But I think early dicision would better my chances of getting into a law school. Seriously what could happen if I decide not to go??!! What could I get sued?, go to jail?? I don't understand how they can just MAKE ME go to their school. Sure I would, but not if I got into another I liked more. ANY thoughts on the subject?? I'm sure i'm not the only one thinking about the same thing. Thanks

Law School Admissions / Full time or Part time???!!
« on: October 04, 2005, 02:23:39 PM »
I heard that I have a better chance of applying for part time to schools. Can I do both, that is, if I don't get into one, hopefully have a chance to get into the other?? Can I just write and addendum asking for them to consider me part time if I don't get in full time?? I would rather go full time, but as I have heard it may be better to just try part time. I don't want to take a chance and apply only for part time, when I could have gotten in for full time, I just wouldn't have a chance to know. What can I do?? Thanks!

I was just wondering if anyone can share to give some advice for what to put on an addendum for explaining a previous low LSAT. I mean is just saying, "I was extremely sick that day" a viable explaination?? I really don't think so, although it could be valid and true, it just sounds weak. Any thoughts would be helpful both to me, and anyone else in my situation. Thanks
