It's legit guys.

Credited.  Over on TLS, they had some people go and confirm it... they have pictures of the book.

Kentucky offers the Ashland scholarship for in-state students... totals $17,000 a year.  Only one is offered annually.  Current in-state tuition is something like $13,500. 

To maintain, you have to stay in good standing (2.0 GPA or higher).

In any case, has anyone actually checked out that site?  I had never heard of it before today, but legalgeekery.com seems to be pretty cool... plenty of reference information as well as some humor.

Subtle legalgeekery.com trolling.

Yeah... that is kind of what it is.  Except that I had never heard of the site before today.   ::)

Totally fake

You think so?  I think this looks fairly authentic.

I bought a copy of it brand new off Ebay after reading Law School Confidential and wanting more of the same.  I was disappointed.  Severely.

The author comes off sounding like someone who: a) didn't do well in law school (and got bullied every day of his life before law school), or b) someone who couldn't get a job out of law school.  He goes on so many paranoid rants about how messed up the system is and spends little time actually offering advice.  There are a few nice insights (and by few, I mean about 3% of the book), but overall I found that it was not worth the effort.

Law School Confidential, on the other hand, I really enjoyed.  It is full of student opinions of what to expect, and it offers a less "I-hate-law" approach.  I will probably use some of the study tips offered in LSC.  If it comes down to one or the other, Law School Confidential is (for me) the hands-down winner.

Exciting news- Luke Winn, from www.sportsillurated.com, has released his preseason NCAA basketball rankings early!  Don't want to spoil it for anyone, but let's just say Harvard and Yale don't come close to this list...

Oh, and for those of you whose hearts just skipped a beat.... chill out.  The US News rankings aren't the end of the world. ;)

My biggest piece of advice to you- take the LSAT.  Guessing you will get a 170 is being pretty optimistic, no matter what you have been scoring.  Study hard, and take the LSAT this June- then you will have a much better idea of what you need to do.

From what I have seen/ heard, about 80% of UK graduates stay in Kentucky.  However, this seems to be by choice- not because they can't get a job somewhere else, but because they don't want to.  At the UK ASD, they emphasized that it was very possible to get a job out of the region, but that you have to work a lot harder to get one.
