Can't exactly do any of this ish from work (besides order the laptop, hence my previous question). But thanks for the link and your attempt at a helpful response.

EDIT: do you have any study aid preferences (by course)?

New York requires one of the higher passing scores - 85 and it doesn't matter if you took Professional Responsibility in law school.


New Jersey will let you slide without taking the MPRE if you have a grade of "C" or better in Professional Responsibility in law school.

DC I'm not sure what they need, if anything.

After waiving in (like most do), there is a mandatory ethics course that must be completed.

Yay! The Alli pills are easy to swallow. I'm going to buy some today! ;D

http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/all-about-alli-the-weight-loss-pill
"More than just a pill, the Alli program involves a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet, regular walking and toning exercises, and behavioral changes."

I haven't read up on the efficacy of the Alli pills, but wouldn't bolded lead to weight loss without them?

EDIT: "If you take Alli and follow a sensible low-fat diet and exercise, you will lose 50% more weight than you would with diet and exercise alone. Instead of losing 10 pounds, a person who takes Alli will lose 15 pounds."

if you are in law school already, do you have time for them?

Do we have any artistic/athletic people that post here? 

I used to paint, long ago when I had "free time."  I also like to run. I haven't finished a painting in 4 years and don't expect to find the time to paint while in LS but I do plan to go for a run at least 3 days a week.
