Well it looks like you have an exceptional chance to do so!

Berk fake ID thing?

It is from the Berkeley freshmen video where new students talk about going to Cal, and the one girl shows off her Cal ID. (I wish I had one!)

I don't think taking law courses will really schools don't want someone who thinks they are already an expert on the law.

Courses that are peripherally related to the law, like philosophy of law, or law and economics, are different, of course.

But yeah, I don't think anyone's going to look too hard at what classes you took, if your major was serious.

good dubm sometimes

No worries. I'm just tired of all the random UGs who seem to think that if you want to be a lawyer, you need to be a Poli Sci major. And of course, the Poli Sci department enjoys the additional UG popularity by raising requirements and doesn't do anything to correct this misperception by offering pre-law minors, so people who didn't have that bias to begin with see the minor...

O Negative

Me too!

I should get some bloodtype diversity points.

I turned down other and in some ways better schools for a girl-bad mistake. You should do whatever you can and go to the best school you can. Of course make whatever arrangements to work things out with the gf.

business majors do get hurt in law school admissions usually.  unless it is from stern, wharton etc. 

that data is kind of old.  english & phil are among the top 5 at most schools if you look at their website/books

Top 5 admitted, yes-there's the rub, eh? :)

While I can appreciate the perspective given by full-time employment post-graduation, I picked my major because I was going to law school and could afford to major in what I was interested in, rather than something that would secure me a reasonable job for the next few years before I'm "allowed" to go on to law school. Most people choose to go to law school through some combination of the fact that it's something they're interested in and that they don't want to do anything else/their current job any longer-why should anyone be forced to sit through a job that they don't want?

It's our time, and our money-law hopefuls deserve as much respect as anyone else.

Studying for the LSAT / February->June?
« on: December 19, 2005, 08:53:12 PM »
In an effort to avoid having a cancelled LSAT on my file, I've simply re-registered for February, with the intention of re-registering for June. Currently, since I don't believe you can register for June, I can't move the date. Will I be able to eventually when the June day comes up, or will I have to cancel first?

If I cancel before the test day, does that even show up as a cancellation as if I'd gone to the test that day and decided later not to have my test be scored?

Or should I just hunker down and wake up at a god-awful early day right after my birthday to take the LSAT at 8 AM?
