Shouldn't Loyola Law be up there?
Loyola is pretty respectable in LA, but their campus is separate from their undergrad, and there are so many other, better schools in the area.
Anecdotal evidence, but my old girlfriend's dad recently made partner in a mid-size firm after a career change and attending Loyola.

good call. you being white wouldn't really add diversity to the school.
Hmm I just noticed we have pretty similar numbers-I'll be watching your apps closely. Mind PMing me a few details about your ECs, undergrad, major, etc? I'll reciprocate.

Even if "all" you get is room & board, that's a job. Our stipend is only $65/month; no one's making a fortune being an RA.
But I think it ranks highly as a fairly prestigious job that requires a lot of commitment here, at least. We have to put on a good number of fairly major events, and patrol and respond to situations.

I'm Central Coast, and would have reasons to be at the Bay Area Forum and the LA one. I guess I'll go to both next year. Are they free? What's the dress like? I was thinking business casual, maybe sans a tie and go open collar. Looks dressy but not stuffy, IMO.

I can't honestly say any of those schools are bad. But for someone with your stats, I would think you would be looking exclusively at the T14. Yale you can never know, but Harvard admits most people like you.

Hope this stays the same for Dec-I can't lose my foundation!

How could anyone not put RAing as job, unless it's drastically different (volunteer?) elsewhere? We're all employees of the state, since we're a state school, and we get renumeration and a stipend. That's definitely a job, and the weekly hours were conservatively estimated at 20.

God, I hope your 'reaches' and 'targets' are a bit better than that. With your nearly perfect stats, everywhere but Yale is almost assured, aside from yield protection from Duke and their ilk.

That sounds dangerous!
Oops, wrong poster...
Anyway, when in the application cycle do you feel it's helpful to attend a forum? At the beginning or when you've finished your applications? Or just whenever they have them in your area?

Any ideas for studying besides courses for someone who's started around 170? I'm planning on self-study, as well as doing all available LSAT problems-any particular books for someone who needs help on high-end logic games and speed and just needs perfection, not general tips?
