General Board / Re: how long take your guys to prepare LSAT
« on: February 22, 2007, 08:11:06 AM »
Havent read the whole thread, but I only half-assed my LSAT prep and I really regret it, my practice scores were a lot higher than my actual as well, something else to keep in mind.(I'm not sure why you'd keep that in mind, but you must take everything you read a on a message board to heart). Really, I don't think there can be too much prep. The better you do the better the school you'll get into the less stress you'll have worrying about being employed when you get out. I'd spend as much time on it as you can. the LSAT is everything for determining what school you get into(pretty much). There's my 2 cents. good luck

General Board / Re: Who here f#$#@#g! hates law school right now

I have days where I can barely tolerate most of my classmates.

I think this is what I was more trying to say. I dont actually hate my classmates as people(aside from maybe 2-3% of them.) In the end most of them are great people who really would help you out and if they asked for help I'd be more than willing to give it. What I was saying was that sometimes being around the same people all the time you get to notice the little things and then combined wtih stress and lack of sleep you begin to hate them. it's not really personal.

I'm sure we'll all be at our section parties.

Don't really know about STCL, but the career services and professors here seem to think that if you really try you can get midlaw fairly easily, like even if you arent in the top 25 or even top 40

I'm at a tier 2, and I can say at times its stressful, but I dont hate it. HOWEVER,  I have begun to depise 90% of my classmates, but that's really just because I'm around them constantly and their voices/mannerisms have begun to get to me. haha.

I'd say just push on, everyone has a day like this regardless of what they do

General Board / Re: Attendance- How strict are your professors?

I only missed 2 classes I think twice last semester. When I felt terrible and once to outline for that class(probably stupid, but I felt I got more from the supplement than the class). I dont like attendence policies though, I'd rather it'd just be up to the student.

Ditto on that warranty. I would even suggest a "tough box" those laptops that can be dropped, spilled on etc.(Although I have no idea how much those costs). My laptop starting messing up right as the warranty expired. Make sure you have a good laptop, you'll want it.

Most professors are pretty strict about it, but I have one who doesn't really care, and he just holds you to it on the "honor system" at the end of the semester as to whether or not you have missed more than the allowed 8 days or something.

Well, the real issue is because my wife still has a job in Houston. The plan is that after I graduate, we are going to continue to live of her salary(as we've been doing) and then throw my entire salary at my debt until it's gone(which with the price of UH could be in one year assuming we stick to the plan). The real reason for the move is because my wife wants to be closer to family for when we'd have kids(terrifying, but ok  :))after around 3-5 years after law school.

Houston has a good legal market and seemed like a good place to get my feet wet before the move. So with these facts, think it's doable?

I go to the UH law center, and the current plan is to work in Houston for a few years when I get out of school, and then maybe try to find employment in Atlanta(It's closer to family, etc.)

Is this a realistic goal if I graduate in the top 30% of the class?

Thanks for the input

Cumberland is actually in BHAM and you should try applying there, you really might have a shot and it places well in Bham
