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?

I haven't been able to get my hands on many of the comparison questions, but the ones that I have, I kind of treat like a hybrid between reading and logical reasoning.  If you notice, they are often either arguments for a similar point or opposing points; therefore, you have to figure out what they are saying and go from there (as you would in a logical reasoning question with two people discussing a point).

That being said, I have little experience with these questions- for those of you with more experience/ knowledge, I am very interested in seeing what you have to say.

Law School Applications / Re: Working during 1L
« on: June 06, 2008, 09:53:57 AM »
Thanks for all of the tips... I won't have a full family when I start, but I am getting married so I will have a wife (who will be working full-time) and myself.  We have discussed different options, including taking out a loan, but right now we are kind of playing things by ear and seeing how I do on the LSAT and what I get offered.

Law School Applications / Working during 1L
« on: June 06, 2008, 08:07:03 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)?

I hope to stay pretty close to home because all my family is here.  However, I am keeping my options open, assuming I would be able to handle things financially.

Does anyone have any idea what kind of aid I would be looking at with a 3.95 and 166 (just an estimate) at UK, and also, how solid of an admit (or would I be at all?) with those numbers at Vanderbilt and other similar schools.

Thanks in advance.

Law School Applications / New to the board... WKU Management Major
« on: June 03, 2008, 11:23:19 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.
