How could you not support a Schwarzenegger/Ventura ticket.
The Constitution, maybe?   ;D

Welcome back and congrats! I never thought I'd be working where I am, but it's been a hell of a ride.

You won't "go complete" until you have an LSAT score in your file. It shouldn't delay things if you apply pending LSAT, but it won't speed them up any compared to applying the day your LSAT is added to your file.

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.

Sometimes I don't get my bar card until a while after the year starts. California sends out bar cards with the year but fees aren't due until Feb. 1, so I don't have a bar card for that year yet. Doesn't mean I'm not a lawyer for the first month or so of every year.
