General Off-Topic Board / Is USC the new Duke?
« on: December 10, 2005, 09:14:32 PM »
As a Trojan, I'm a bit worried about USC becoming the Duke of college football--hated by all for always being good. Is this going to happen? Has it already happened?  Or will Notre Dame always hold that place?

Law School Applications / Academic summary report?

Does anyone know how long it takes LSAC to post this up once they have received and processed all of my transcripts (which finally happened today)?

What's the deal? Can any g'town students respond, please. I'm borderline at FT, so I'm considering their PT. They say on their website employers do not differentiate between PT students and FT students...is this true? If I was PT, can I take any class? Will I be in classes with FT students, or is it PT only classes? What about the intro courses...is it in the mix with FT students or PT only sections?  What would I do with all of the extra time if I went PT? Get a job? The website says students can request a transfer to FT after 1L, how easily is this done? Is it rubber-stamped?

3.5 from a top 30 private uni.

169.

Worked a bit my first couple of yrs in college.

Absolute minimal honors and extracurics.

1 and 1/2 yrs law firm experience.

I haven't even started on apps/LORs yet so I assume I won't be able to get everything together until xmas.

How does my list look, and what else should I consider as targets/reaches/safeties? Feedback on my chances? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Can someone please post the credited answers for each section? It would be much appreciated. My item response report will not open properly and my bubbling skills are sketchy at best.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT drinking game?
« on: October 13, 2005, 01:19:01 AM »
Has anyone tried this yet? What are the rules? I just thought of this and think it would be brilliant fun.

I'm thinking, start out with LR problems, one person doing a question at a time, if they finish in under 45 seconds and get it right the other person(s) drink. If they get it wrong or go over a 2 minute time limit, they drink. If they get it right but go over 45 seconds, and under 2 minutes, then it is just the next person's turn. If it is a dinoasaur or meteor question, everyone chugs for five seconds. If it is a meteors killed the dinosaurs question, everyone finishes whatever liquor they have in front of them. Then, after the two LR sections, it goes to games. Everyone does the same game at the same time. It is a race. Whoever finishes first rings a bell. If that person got all of the questions right, then the others have to finish their beer. However, if the person gets just one wrong, they have to finish their own beer, and everyone else's beer. There are some serious possibilities here. feel free to add rules.

Studying for the LSAT / Poll: Did you get to all the answers?

Well?

I've been out of school a couple of years and no longer live in the same region, so I can't stop by campus to visit professors. I plan on asking two professors who taught classes I excelled at. I wasn't buddy-buddy with either of them, but I assume they will probably vaguely recall me and write a decent rec if asked.

So, how do I make the first contact? Phone/email/letter? I have no idea if they even check email (they seem like the kind that don't) and they probably only have about 2-4 hrs of office hours a week, and I wouldn't know when. I assume if I call I'll only get VM--would it be impolite to ask them to call me back? If I send an email, who knows if they'll reply. And if I send a letter, I'm thinking I might not know if they decided to do it or not, and I wouldn't really know how to follow up.

Any advice on how to proceed...what to say?  This seems like a more delicate operation than I had initially thought. I jsut don't want to do anything that would be too up-front.
