See, here's the dilemna- you say that it is adult ADHD and that it has affected your performance, and that is understandable.  However, if it is adult ADHD, who is to say it will not affect your performance in law school and as an attorney in general- it is certainly something to overcome, however you need to be careful not to use it as a crutch because it doesn't seem like something that is going away so you will continue to have to contend with it.  Hope that makes sense... :-\

Law School Applications / LSD Rankings, 2008
« on: June 27, 2008, 02:02:13 PM »
This is another semi-pointless game, but it could be fun... we will rank the schools one by one.  I will start with the top spot, and the person below me will list the next best available school.  Pretend that money isn't an option and no rationale is required... if you could have a full ride anywhere, where would you pick.  No listings- if your school is taken, pick the next best.

I'll start with the #1 ranking- let the games begin.


1. Harvard University

Studying for the LSAT / From TLS- pretty funny
« on: June 27, 2008, 08:35:55 AM »
Can't take credit for this, because I didn't write it- from Source from TLS:
We all did fine... We all did fine... We all did fine... We all did fine...

Thought the RC was impossible? So did everyone else. You didn't second guess yourself and choose the wrong answer, those changes you made were correct. The comparative reading? Everyone was confused. The answer choices seemed arbitrary, but your gut instinct led you to ultimately the right answer. Well done.

Logic Games did you in? Relax. Even though the dancers and cakes weren't standard, the questions weren't that complicated. You may have done some guess and check, but it paid off. You didn't forget a rule, and that's the important part.

Logical Reasoning? It wasn't too easy to be true. You just aced it. That damn f*cking cow question is surely to be thrown out.

Regretting not cancelling? Don't. Cancelling is for p*ssies. You tested to your diagnostic, it just feels different because you can't know right away. Trust me.

Regretting cancelling? Stop, you did the right thing (p*ssy). You completely messed up a whole section. The guy next to you had avian flu. The proctor was drunk, and stopped the test 5 minutes early. You'll dominate in October.

Curve not going to be high? Of course it will. Do you realise how many dumbf*cks take this test, none of which are on TLS? Those non sequential logic games were set up so that average people would miss them all. Just a few more days till you see that magic -12.

Test scores not coming in fast enough? They'll come early this time, they always do. 1 week away. Get a job. Go to the beach. Get drunk for seven days straight. July 3rd will be here before you know it.

Log off the forums. Take a shower. Go for a run. Then come back, and tell me I'm right, so that I will believe this too. Thanks.

But I do hear they have a heck of a space law program...

Princeton is a festering TTT in decline.

Law School Applications / Re: Asking for application fee waivers?
« on: June 25, 2008, 11:33:16 AM »
I am interested in this as well because since I only have 2 real primary choices I am looking at, I probably won't apply to too many more unless it doesn't cost me anything.  I know that if you are eligible for the LSAT fee waiver then you also are eligible for an application fee waiver at U of Kentucky.  Anyone who knows more about this, please let us know.

Just realized I accidentally double posted this thread... let's just use this one and let the other one sink.

Law School Applications / Best in state
« on: June 25, 2008, 08:14:24 AM »
This is similar to my other thread (your top 5), but it is different enough that it deserves its own thread.  This is a way for us to kind of expand our perceptional horizon- what you do is this: list the top 3/4/however many schools in your state and rank them.  Don't rank them by US News or Leiter or anything like that.  Rank them as you see them- definately take into account factors such as price, quality, and general perception throughout the state.  Many people are indicating that they have a national preference- it is important that we know a school's perception within that school's state.

I'll start, and since my state only has three law schools, that is all I will look at.

State: Kentucky

1. University of Kentucky
Most lawyers I know have a degree from UK.  Blame it on the size, blame it on the basketball team, blame it on whatever you want- UK means more than any other school here in Kentucky.  While it is the most expensive of the 3 law schools (not by much), it really seems that you get the most bang for your buck here.

2. University of Louisville
Barely- U of L was almost third.  Louisville's a really nice city too- lots of culture and tradition, and a really good pie shop.  It's just that, when you go to Louisville, most people in the state assume that it is because you can't get into UK.  Is it fair?  Probably not... but anywhere outside of Louisville (and maybe inside as well), a UK degree will beat a U of L degree.

3. Northern Kentucky University
This is an odd ball school.  I don't know a whole lot about the actual academics of the school, but I do know that they have a bad reputation within the state, so I imagine they have no reputation outside of the state.  Also, the campus is a mess... really ugly place that is nicknamed the "concrete jungle".  There is a plus, and it is a pretty huge one- the median LSAT is very low, and NKU is very generous.  In fact, around a third of the students there are receiving full rides.

Now it is your turn- list your state.  If your state has already been listed, list it anyway; different opinions are both accepted and encouraged.

Kinda lame that you go to EKU, Eastern- haha, just joking... I know so many people that go to Eastern, and I really think the two schools run parallel to each other in a lot of ways (Eastern and Western I mean).

Hopefully we will both reach our goals (I am hoping for upper-160s) and we may end up being in the same class at UK.

I would suggest the prison, but the lighting is not quite up to par with typical LSAT suggestions.  Instead, I would recommend a bank that is getting ready to be robbed- everyone is generally unprepared and has no idea what to do and by the end, most everyone will have thrown their hands up in helplessness.
