General Board / Re: case briefing

I'm also interested in this. And I'd like to know a more basic question: should we take the time to brief cases?

You're right to a degree. There's not a huge difference in ability between someone with a 170 and 172, a 168 and a 170, or a 159 and 161, even though those small gaps have a major impact on the school you can get into. But I would bet in most cases, someone with a 144 LSAT (and there are many such people) won't do as well in law school as someone with a 170.

I don't know that either in and of themselves are a predictor of law school success.  I think it is about the thinking/study/reading skills and endurance that got you there. All pretty easy so far? It's a crapshoot.  Had to work hard and had success - better odds

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Law School Prep Books

Also, are there any PT students out there who also work full-time? If I wasn't working full-time this fall, I wouldn't even consider prepping over the summer. But since we have much less free time than full-time students, I'm wondering if there is some value in reading the E&E's in advance.

I think I saw a message from a Florida grad on the admitted student site (maybe that was you).

They can communicate?

no t4 students are unlike normal people in all walks of life, that's why they couldn't get into a top 100 school.  they don't date, drink or do anything enjoyable, they just sit around all day and commiserate about how they bad on the lsat

If you look at the LSAC indices, most schools give a lot more weight to LSAT.

George Mason U / Re: George Mason - Courses

I considered GMU. It really is on the rise. But the faculty is very, very conservative. And its grads have to contend with GULC and GW grads for jobs in the DC market (very few GMU grads get jobs outside of the DC area.)

Would the bar prep series be useful for 1L's who are studying for exams?
