Studying and Exam Taking / I don't type quickly...am I screwed??
« on: March 31, 2008, 05:19:20 PM »
I've heard from a few people that the ability to type quickly is a very valuable skill in Law School.  I do not type well, however, and certainly can't type without looking at the keyboard.  Is this something I should address before I enter my 1L year??  I know it's kind of a weird question but any advice would be helpful.

General Board / Where could I go to find cost of living estimates??
« on: March 30, 2008, 05:20:31 AM »
I have estimated my cost of living, which includes rent, food, gasoline, housing bills, phone, health insurance, etc, etc.  My parents are paying for nothing.  Where could I go to compare that to what my school has estimated??  Any help at all would be great.  I'm worried that I will estimate it well above what they will and I'll get screwed in financial aid.  Everything is on me in Law School.  Every penny.

General Board / Re: Law School Chances...

At a lot of schools, your minority status will be worth at least 5 points on the LSAT in terms of helping your chances.

Transferring / Re: Yale & the "B" issue

I think it means that the weighted gpa must be at least that of a "B"

Transferring / Re: What would it take to transfer from Tier 2 to T20??

Rough guess:

Top 10% for WUSTL
Top 5-9% for Texas or Vandy
Top 5% for Georgetown or UCLA
Top 1-4% for UVA, Michigan, NYU, Chicago, or Penn
Ranked among the top 5 students in your class for Harvard or Yale



Thank you so much.  I plan on working my ass off.  I will be happy to graduate from Oklahoma but I'm just testing the water on getting to a top school.  Thanks again.

In at Oklahoma (US News #71).  I'm just wondering what it would take to get into a top school after 1 year.

I'm new to this board so any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
