Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Law School Gallery

Great idea!  It will be nice to get some unbias pictures of campuses, because I am sure the Universities only take pictures of the perfect spots, under the perfect lighting, and in perfect weather to make the schools look great...

Thanks and Gig 'Em,

Law School Admissions / LSAC ABA Guide WORKING!!!
« on: April 28, 2004, 10:01:40 PM »
Howdy,

Just to let everyone know, it seems as though LSAC fixed the calculations with the ABA Official Guide.  You can now get a fairly accurate idea about your chances at specific schools.

Law School Admissions / Re: I'm glad I didn't apply to UT...
« on: April 27, 2004, 10:32:21 PM »
Its obvious that the LSAC calucations are messed up.  If you look at UT's LSAT/GPA acceptance grid, 18 out of 18 people with 175-180 LSATs and 3.75+ GPAs were accepted.  This puts the percentage of acceptance at 100%, not less than 25%.  LSAC really needs to get its act together and fix their calculations, their mistakes are scaring a lot of people...

Law School Admissions / Re: New Numbers on LSAC.org

Don't worry too much about it.  Those numbers are all incorrect.  The calculations don't come anywhere NEAR the truth.  I really wish LSAC could get their stuff together and actually put together something decent for once... Anyways, if you want to see a true reflection of your chances, don't worry about the calculations and instead look at the GPA/LSAT acceptance chart of each school.  That will be a better reflection of the actual admission cycle.

Law School Admissions / ABA-LSAC Official Guide Up...
« on: April 27, 2004, 08:03:59 AM »
Howdy,

Just to let everyone know, the ABA-LSAT official guide has been posted on http://officialguide.lsac.org/docs/cgi-bin/home.asp.  However, I do believe there are major gliches.  For example, with a 3.55 and a 170, I only have a less than 25% chance of getting into ASU law school.  hmmmmm....

Thanks and Gig 'Em

Law School Admissions / Re: Early Decision Question...
« on: April 25, 2004, 10:27:53 AM »
See, I've heard the complete opposite.  When I visited Notre Dame, they said since they only accept a small pool of applicants, the Early Decision option may set a person apart because Notre Dame will be sure that person is attending.  It cuts down on the ambiguity of acceptances vs. attending formula.  I guess every school is different. 

Thanks and Gig 'Em

Law School Admissions / Early Decision Question...
« on: April 25, 2004, 10:11:33 AM »
Howdy,

I've noticed that many schools I am interested in offer an Early Decision option.  While most of these school say this option is "binding," I noticed that many have multiple law schools checked for Early Decision in lawschoolnumbers.com.  Exactly how "binding" is an early decision policy?  Will a school hunt you down if you apply early decision and don't attend? 

Thanks and Gig 'Em

Law School Admissions / Scholarships...
« on: April 19, 2004, 02:28:27 PM »
Howdy,

Public interest work, such as FBI, has always interested me.  However, in order to go into this field I can't have a lot of debt when I graduate.  So my question is, what Law Schools are traditionally generous with merit based scholarships?  I looked on the USNews report at different schools, but its hard to tell from that.  My numbers are 3.55 from Large Public in Texas, and I'm floating around a 165 on practice LSATs.

Thanks and Gig 'Em

Law School Admissions / Nation School outside of top 14...
« on: April 13, 2004, 12:11:21 AM »
Howdy,

What are some of the more "national" schools outside the top 14?  I know Notre Dame and Vanderbilt are, but are there any more? I don't know where I want to practice, and my stats are 3.55/hovering around 165 (with a LOT of EC), so 15-35 is probably around my range.  Thank you.
