Incoming 1Ls / Re: Hastings Housing

You should choose the law school that you most want to go to.  I would base that decision on where you want to practice law.  If you want to practice in Cali, Hastings is a great option.  If you need to move to Cali, I would call the financial aid office and let them know your situation.  They may be able to give you extra $ or give you advice on how to pay for the move, etc.  All I know is a lot of people have to move to law school and I am sure that most people are in your situation.  Hastings is expensive in that you more than likely have to/should live in San Fran, which is expensive.  I just secured a one bedroom w/ 2 other girls: $775.  I could have gone cheaper though.  I have seen places for $650 and below.  I agree w/ the previous posts that these slight differences (although they seem major) in expenses won't matter much later on.  Hastings will afford you much greater opportunities...simple as that.  I received several offers from lesser schools w/ big $.  It just isn't that great of a deal.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: hastings or BU

I ALSO had to choose between these schools...and BU gave me $15,000!!!  I just know I want to end up in Cali...simple as that.  The east coast is, well, the east coast.  If that doesn't mean anything to you, it will if you go to school there.  I grew up in the Midwest, so I think we really can see the difference in West vs. East. 

I ended up having a bf who got into Stanford MBA.  If he would have wanted to go to Harvard, we may have ended up at BU.  That is a tough call...I really struggled w/ it.  The only thing I can say, is I am going to Hastings in fall and I am excited!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Breaks?

I took the test in June and December of 2003.  It was approx 1 minute between sections.  It could depend on the proctor too though.

You CANNOT write on your test booklet or your scantron during the breaks.  This would get you in MAJOR trouble.  There is a 10-15 minute break after the 3rd section.  Just as an FYI, you get about a one minute break in between each section while the proctor reads instructions.  It really helps having that breather to up the concentration.

One thing that really shook me my first LSAT...yes I took it twice...was how long it takes to actually start.  Be prepared to be sitting in the room, checked in for at least an hour to an hour and a half before you test.  They're not kidding when they say all said in done, the LSAT will last you at leats 6 hours. 
Good luck!

You LOVE Fox News?  Yikes.  They take the same approach to news as they do to football.

I have to say, without being at all sarchastic...I am impressed that you think Fox is slightly conservative.  Because, as a liberal, I find it insanely right.  I mean no insults here.  The political spectrum is an amazing thing.  I think its way too conservative and it sounds like you don't find it conservative enough.  Although, w/ regard to the point about Fox having liberals...I think 9 times out of 10, they just bring liberals on to yell at them and beat on them. 

One point for conservatives: you don't have to YELL to be heard.

So, Jeremy...what news sources do you trust?  Or maybe you follow the lead of your conservative leader who says he doesn't like to read newspapers...they are too biased.  He gets his information for his advisors.  (I am sure his advisors aren't biased!   :D)  Poor Diane Sawyer had to keep a straight face when he said this in an interview. 

All anyone can do is read as many sources of information as they can and extrapolate what is happening in the world.  There are hundreds of books and articles on the CIAs subversive techniques in Latin American countries.
