Very good article UChi2L.  Sent it to some friends who are starting law school in the fall.

General Board / Re: Ave Maria Law School Moving to Florida

Ave Maria had a lot of good things going for them.  Strong bar passage rate, excellent funding, low attrition rate for a T4.  Shaking things up will certainly cause many potential students to avoid this school.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Stop Hiding behind your ABA school...

Excellent post TDJD84.  Very good points.  There is nothing wrong with getting your JD online, and I think many mature B&M students understand this.  There are tons of kids running around this board bashing everyone and anyone they can get a rise out of.  I think that many B&M students would respect most people who could pass the bar while studying on their own.

Also, good point about the lack of networking and social interaction opportunities that many online DL schools do not provide.  One day they will probably address this and figure out a way to improve this aspect.  Unless you are already established, it is tough to get any kind of job without knowing the right people.

Susan,

Drexel University has just started a law school and one of the focuses is  entrepreneurial business law. 

Here is the PDF -
www.drexel.edu/law/pdfs/entrepreneurship.pdf
If you  have any trouble opening the document, you can simply Google "Drexel Law + entrepreneur law" and it should be the first hit that comes up.

General Board / Re: how good an indicator is the LSAT score really?

LSAT :154 A,A,A,A- But michigan student does make a good point as to the level of competition.  What would be interesting to see is how well a student with a low LSAT does after a transfer to a T1 school

Wow, awesome semester!  Your rank must be kick @ss!

You can't infer a faulty correlation from a single data point. 

Also, your LSAT score likely placed you at a school where students have similar scores.  Thus, the correlation between scores and grades will be lower than if you were competing with a random sample of students from all law schools.

I don't think the OP was doing anything but enjoying his/her solid first semester grades.

Thanks for being Debbie Downer and continuing to argue with every single person on both LSD boards.

Many lower ranked law schools actually have tougher grading curves... So his/her success at a school with a 2.4 - 2.6 grading curve would only strengthen the OP's argument.

My father had trouble passing the bar too, but it was a long walk from the mill and he was thirsty...  Couldn't resist this old joke  :D

i know you are not a lawyer, thats why u are on a lawschool board.  I am so a doctor now as I have seen er, so do not asume I am not a doctor, screw the ama and the aba   I am now a doctor

There might be the germ of a thought in here, but the syntax is so mangled that I couldn't tease any meaning from this sentence.

I would pay money to see duckasourus' LSAT writing sample...

1L job search / Re: 3.8 @ Michigan 1st semester

We have several associates at my firm from UofM.  I would be willing to bet that even if you had a 3.0 at that school you would still be very highly pursued.

Thanks.  What city is your firm in, and how large is the firm?

Jones Day, Los Angeles.
