Studying for the LSAT / June LSAT

What does everyone think? What was your best and worst?  Discuss.

Law School Admissions / pre-law... but not *Pre-Law*
« on: June 13, 2008, 11:21:32 AM »
I was curious as to whether most of the posters are/ were considered pre-law in UG.  My university doesn't have a law school, and, while they do have a pre-law program, I feel that it is not really worth my time to declare pre-law.  I have been studying for the LSAT on my own since December, and the only advantage of our pre-law program is... well, to be honest, I don't see any advantage of the program.

Anyway, I was wondering what your thoughts were- is pre-law a worthwhile program or no?

Law School Admissions / Question about how/ when to apply
« on: June 13, 2008, 06:52:23 AM »
I am taking the June LSAT, so I figure I should have my score at the latest by sometime in mid-July.  I want to apply as early as possible to about 8 different schools, and I already have in mind two or three teachers who would right me very good LoRs.  However, I don't graduate until December, so my full transcript won't be complete until then.  If I apply, will college just take into my account my GPA so far (it is quite good, and there isn't any reason to think it would lower substantially)?  I just don't really understand how the whole application through LSAC process works.

Also, another question- my LSAT ticket says not to arrive any later than 12:30.  Am I to assume that this is central time (it doesn't say, but the center is in central time)?  Also, what time would really be best to arrive- 12:00, 12:15?  Any advice would be very helpful.

Studying for the LSAT / Maybe dumb question (re:IDs)
« on: June 11, 2008, 10:13:43 AM »
This may be a dumb question, but you guys might know.  The LSAC makes it clear what kind of IDs are acceptable, and they emphasize that your ID has to have a recent picture.  I am planning on using my driver's license for my ID- however the license has a picture from when I was 16 (I just turned 21).  My license hasn't expired yet, and I haven't had any drastic physical changes.. would this be okay?

Assuming this was a decision I was looking at, which of the following choices would be a better option in you guys opinions: a) Kentucky with maybe half paid by scholarships... or b) Louisville fully paid (with perhaps a stipend?)...

It is not a decision I am having to face, but it is very possible that I could.  What do you think?

Law School Admissions / Working during 1L
« on: June 06, 2008, 05:07:03 AM »
I heard from somewhere that students at University of Kentucky aren't allowed to work during their 1L year and are only allowed to work 20 hours during 2L.  Does anyone know if this sounds accurate or if other law schools have this rule?

Also, if this rule doesn't exist, is it feasible/ reccomendable to work during the first year at law school?  I have heard some people say it isn't, and I have had some professors who were attorneys that said they worked the whole time.  To those of you who have went through law school without working, how did you come up with money to get by and live (especially if you were married or were supporting a family)?

Law School Admissions / New to the board... WKU Management Major
« on: June 03, 2008, 08:23:19 PM »
I have been reading the board for a few weeks now and find the various posters to seem both well-informed and interesting, so I figured I would create a post to introduce myself and maybe ask a question or two.

I am a senior Management major at Western Kentucky University with a 3.95 GPA.  I am taking the June LSAT and graduating in December (also getting married this August).  On the diagnostic tests, I have been testing in the 164-170 range with 171 being my highest score.  I am currently looking at various schools, but my top two are Kentucky and Vanderbilt.

I haven't seen anyone mention Kentucky anywhere on the board, and I am curious as to what everyone thinks/ has heard about it.  I am hoping to practice corporate law in Kentucky or northern Tennessee (Nashville area) upon receiving my JD.  Any comments or opinions are both welcome and appreciated.
