General Board / How to dress like a law student
« on: February 10, 2009, 11:12:25 AM »
What types of clothes should a law school student wear? Except for stuff I wear when exercising or special occasions, my wardrobe is all jeans, hiking boots, and button-down shirts (long sleeved). I imagine that I'll have to ditch the boots in favor of stuff like dress shoes, but would the button-down shirts and jeans be acceptable to wear to classes? How many suits should a law student own? I currently have 1 black suit and a charcoal colored suit.


I was wondering if people transferring out of a school is factored in for a school's attrition rate. Thanks

What would be wise uses of my time as a 0L during the Spring and Summer before my 1L year begins? I'm currently employed as a librarian (times are hard  :D ) and was just curious as to how I should prepare for beginning law school. Thanks



I'm think I'm too old to piss my summer and spring away relaxing. I was looking along the lines of stuff that I could do to help me prepare for life as a law school student. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I plan on doing all my apps online, but I'm not sure how to display the heading of my PS. My PS is literally 2-pages with no extra on the bottom of my word processor. I've heard that on every document that is a part of the app, one should put their name and LSAC number on the document. If I do that with my PS, my PS will overflow into a 3rd page, a violation of the 2-page rule. What should I do about it if I can't trim my PS down any? Thanks

Do you think you'd do any better if you retook the LSAT? Also, how do you feel about relocating elsewhere? The region you're looking at is a very competitive one where even decent numbers don't necessarily guarantee you anything.

Being PR may help you wherever you apply, but no promises.

The only respectable school in the area that I think you have at least a decent chance of getting into is Baltimore. There are some others that you look fairly good at, but I'd stay away from them (cough...Liberty...cough).

I was hoping to start in '09, but that seems just about impossible with a low score like mine. Unfortunately, relocation isn't possible for me due to familial obligations. I postponed until December with the hope of getting a good score on my LSAT, but hitting a 153 on the December test pretty much killed this cycle for me. I pretty much figured the only schools I could get into that I knew of were UDC, Howard, Baltimore, and maybe Catholic. All except Catholic seem to be 3rd Tier or lower.

Not what I wanted to hear, but thanks for the honest assessment anyway.

The situation is that I have a 2.83 Undergraduate GPA and I just scored a 153 on my LSAT due to nerves. Which schools in Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland could I get into with those numbers? If it helps (which I doubt), I'm Puerto Rican. Thanks for any answers in this matter.

I've been having a skid in my RC performance lately (I went from -4 to -13  >:() and I needed help with this. I'm taking the test in December, but my RC skills must have atrophied a bit because I was so focused on LG due to that being my weak area and LR since that's half the test.

I find that reviewing RC doesn't seem to be worth the time because RC is ALL about timing, so of course if I had more time, I would know where the correct answers are located in the passages. Does anyone have any tips for reviewing incorrect RC answers or should I just continue doing at least 1 RC section daily so that I can re-establish my LSAT reading skills? Thank you in advance for any responses.

I do PTs on Wednesdays and Saturdays. On Thursdays and Sundays, I'll review my test from the previous day if I didn't have time to do so the day I took my PTs. I do at least 1 drill section for each section type on days I'm not doing a PT. Using the Bibles and other similar study aides at this point seem more detrimental than anything else because people needed to have learned the mechanics well before the 3 week stretch.

I'm waiting until I get my score. The February test is almost totally useless for the admission cycle for the upcoming fall semester. With the December score, you'll know if you have to take a year off and/or which schools are auto-rejects for you. Any and all December test takers NEED to have all their other stuff done so that they can start applying right after they get their scores.
