I'm talking about the study Qs. The more reputable companies use questions from past LSATs that they won't administer to you. Back in my prelaw days we jokingly called them Kraplan. YMMV.

The main issue with Kaplan is that they do not use real, licensed LSAT questions. As a result, some other questions are just off.  It's been awhile, so I suppose this could have changed, but that was the biggest legitimate complaint back in the day.  The difference is real.

You want a cookie? Or for me to lock the topic, because the mic was dropped?  ::)

I'm not aware of any U.S. state bar that allows consultation of any materials other than the exam itself and it's pretty clear OP is talking about a bar exam materials company, not misconduct on the exam.

Smarter Review's "Cheat Sheet" bar review's whole system of limited reservation tickets seems off to me. Why would they not be able to make extras? Are students getting different materials from the other? It appears you are only able to use the materials for one sitting.

Answer: law school deans. The end. gg wp

He means doc review. Yeah you can do Federal in another state (like me) but that's not short-term.

Rankings are largely irrelevant other than perhaps the distinction between T14/T20, top 50, top 100, and the rest.

If you want to be in Oregon, go to Lewis & Clark. If you want to be in Wisconsin, go to UW. It's that simple. Neither are going to travel well and you'll likely be stuck in those markets.

In the grand scheme of law school, $9k is nothing. Not having to pay rent in Oregon is a huge advantage, IMO, but if you just can't see yourself practicing there, don't do it.

How good (or not) your grades are really depends on your school's curve. That's the only way to know if you are competitive. If your school ranks, that's one way to find out. All of your questions are school and curve-specific. A 2.9 at Columbia is probably dead last, but the name will help you get something, even if it's not biglaw. A 2.9 somewhere else in a highly respected regional school where that's average to above average grades might give you a shot at midlaw. There are other, worse scenarios, but I won't go into those because hopefully they don't apply.

As far as I know, he got a firm job and lived happily ever after.

Being a forum mod and site admin are two very different things. The latter would require access to the server and has the potential to screw up some stuff real good. I'm not a programmer and I wouldn't know how to fix it or what's wrong with it beyond the fact that it doesn't work.

I'm sorry; wish I could be more helpful. There's still a lot of good information stored here and some helpful posters. Hopefully you'll take from it what you can.

Unlikely, as the guy who created this forum graduated from law school almost a decade ago and he's the only one who can edit the source code.
