i am taking the lsat in less than two weeks and then i will apply at thomas jefferson in san diego. it seems that this is not the most difficult school to get into.  can anybody give me some feed back on this. thanks

You seem to be a newbie, so here is a heads up...ALL law school can be difficult to get into, it really depends on you personally...more info would be needed to gauge your chances...
avg. LSAT
GPA
Crim history
EC's
minority?

Thanks Big Daddy! Next time I need an unqualified opinion, I know to whom I will turn. The choice is not that simple. Wake is also in the top tier and the name seems to carry more weight despite the fact that they are lower in the rankings.

You're the one asking for opinions of law schools from people who have never been before...you don't want our unqualified opinion, don't ask.

My point is that you really cannot go wrong with either choice. I know there are alot of rankings whores who say "if you're not top-14, don't bother"....bull.
Go to a school you will enjoy for three years, that will help you in your studying and THAT is what will help you get a job....grades, not rank

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Food Stamps

What is wrong with a starving law student accepting food stamps? 

What is the hang up with who deserves food and who doesn't? 

the big point here is that the LS student can get extra loans to help get through and pay for food, while the single mother of three works two jobs and still has trouble putting food on the table.
and those who are to be public interest attny's can get loan forgiviness if they desire that route. Leave the food stamps to those who are truly unable to support themselves.

just take the extra 3k in loans already.. jeez. food stamps? that's f-ing insane. In fact, it's exactly "taking advantage"... the majority of us will come out making $120+k a year and loan payments will be an afterthought. there's no reason to use the system for food stamps...

I can't imagine rolling into a grocery store and trying to pay with food stamps.

Okay, so what about for people who plan to work in public interest and make $30-40k a year? Is it okay for them?

Personally, I think if it's there and you're eligible, you should take it.  If they didn't want grad students to use it they'd write the rules in such a way that you would not be eligible.
30-40K a year is too much, at least in Cali. we are talking under 15-18k / year in you are single. In order to qualify for FS at 40K a year, you would need about 9 dependants.

Either forget Cali FS, or get busy having fun!! ::)
