I got married during 1L winter break. I second the above poster - you do end up feeling really burnt out, unless you have everything under control, which is really hard when you're at school. I think summer is probably the best time - you'll have a little while to recuperate! Best of luck.

If you want to practice in SC AT ALL, you have to take the bar there. SC is not an MBE state, and you will not get reciprocity by taking the exam somewhere else. If you don't want to practice there, take NC's, since it does have reciprocity with other states.

I found that using Glannon's E & E in tandem with the Glannon guide was really helpful; although a lot of the subject matter was similar, there were areas that one book explained a bit better than the other and vice versa.

You need to figure out what other regions you might be interested in practicing in. Top 15% at UF will probably not get you into any of the T14. You have a decent shot at WUSTL or GW, which are more national than UF, but you need to do your homework about what you want and where else you might consider working. Good luck.

This really isn't an exact science. As I've stated before, I have similar stats to you and was accepted EA. However, I applied two months ago when the EA program first opened, so I agree with the above poster -- you're probably going to have to wait until this summer to hear anything. From my experience, I would refrain from badgering the admissions staff, because they are very reluctant to provide any sort of answers. Best of luck to you.

I think re-using your previous admissions essay is a bad idea. You're not in the same place you were when you were originally applying to law school, and you've now had a year's worth of experience that you should probably talk about. From what I understand (and I'm no expert, but I have already been accepted as a transfer at a T20) the general idea is to explain why you want to go to the school, and how your first year of law school helped you make that decision or changed your goals or...insert insightful phrase here. I would suggest starting anew. Additionally, if you got dinged somewhere initially, why? I don't know if ad comms look at your original file or not, but if you didn't stand out the first time, sending the same thing again doesn't seem to be a great idea. Start over. If you want to transfer that much, taking a couple days to work on a new essay will be worth the trouble.

I think you might be a good candidate for WUSTL, provided your rank doesn't slip too much this semester. I got in EA with a similar rank from a T2, so it might be worth a try. Good luck.

Does anyone know how on-time WUSTL has been in the past with making these kinds of decisions?
