Where should I go next fall? / Re: UMich 2L taking Q's

Tell us all about the Lawyer's Club, if you lived there!

How is the food? Eating in those wood-paneled rooms must be nice.
How is the social life? Do people date a lot? Are most people(women especially) already attached?
Are there many offical and un-official get-togethers for the law students?
Where do students generally hang out?

How competitive are the classes? Generally collegial or intense? What's the grading like?

You were placed on probation for taking below the minimum number of units?

Usually, they do require you to take a certain number of units without a petition for deficit, but I'd be surprised if this were an academic thing. You should contact someone in the school to see if it's on your disciplinary report. I can't see this being in the same vein as things as getting caught cheating. It's like you forgot to pay your tuition on time and you had your registration held or something.

I'm a Bruin fan, but come on, the Trojans are going to win, just like in the Trojan War...

Seriously, though. USC.

I'd love to go anywhere in YHS, Michigan, or Berkeley. For some reason, Michigan seems the most likely, as no one with numbers similar to mine was rejected last year on LSN. I figure Berkeley's more iffy due to GPA, and YHS is a crapshoot, at best.

Law School Applications / Re: What can I do with an LSAC fee waiver ?

You can request a fee waiver from each school based on your granting of an LSAC one, as it says here:

2. Requesting a Fee Waiver From a US or Canadian Law School

US Candidates

Contact a law school in your area to determine if the law school participates in the fee waiver program and how it wants you to submit your application. Allow yourself enough time to meet the regular registration deadline at LSAC. If the law school returns your application with the fee waiver approved, send to LSAC the completed application, tax form(s) and other documentation, and completed LSAT & LSDAS Registration Form together in the preaddressed envelope contained in the packet. Include a check or money order, or the account number and expiration date of your credit card, for the balance of fees you owe. Your approved fee waiver application form must be included with any LSAC form you use to order waived services. Your approved application and registration form must be postmarked by the regular registration deadline in order to avoid paying a late registration fee. If your materials are postmarked during the late registration period, you must include payment for the $58 late registration fee. Late fees will not be waived.

No, it simply means you don't have to pay LSAC for their LSDAS reports. You still have to pay the schools their application fees, just not 4 of LSAC's.

Mmm...well, that's unfortunate for your circumstances.

I'd expect to go home Winter break anyway, and I absolutely love the way it looks, so I'd love to live there.

Could someone who's been admitted copy/paste this info or upload it somewhere like

You can't view it unless you've been admitted.

I'm thinking about applying for UCLA's Study Abroad at London and Stratford for 8 units of Summer Shakespeare. :)
