Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 145, 148 on lsat.. options
« on: January 11, 2010, 09:13:47 PM »
yeah thanks for the advice.. do you know how it would look to law schools if i took it 3 times though?
Assuming you scored higher the third time around -- better than if you applied with just a 148?

No, nealric is lying.  We all make $200K, drive Lamborghinis, and have multiple supermodels on tap for recreational sex.  Don't let anyone know I told you, though, or they'll kick me out of the bar association.

Law School Admissions / Re: 3.1 - 167. Looking at W&L, UF, UGA

You might want to add a few higher schools as well, if there are any you like.

Don't expect to get into UNC unless you're a NC resident, though.  IIRC, they're required to take 75% of their class from in-state.

Law School Admissions / Re: another disclosure question

No worries; the bar is never going to know that you didn't disclose it on the law school apps. The moral/character fitness application process is entirely different.
Disagree.  My school has made it very clear to us that the Illinois bar goes through our law school apps very carefully to see if anything wasn't disclosed that should have been.  We also have ongoing disclosure requirements.  I had to tell them about the dipshit fascist cop who hassled me one night when I was checking my email outside a library on their wifi.

Your state bar might vary, but I honestly doubt it.

Law School Admissions / Re: Writing addendum for prior arrests

I kinda liked Homer's approach to college applications:
Homer: "...It was the most I ever threw up, and it changed my life forever."
 Bart: You the man, Homer!
Homer: Thanks, boy!
-- What it is, "Homer Goes to College"

Anyways...I want to go to an ivy league school, more specifically...Colombia, Stanford, Yale, Harvard, Duke. My parents think it doesnt make a difference where you graduate...
Tell your parents that post-graduation employment statistics collected by NALP show that whereas a large percentage (well over 50%) of graduates of the top fourteen law schools get a high-paying job, only about 5% of UTK grads do.  A UTK grad might get a job, or in this economy might not, but it will be in Podunkville and pay peanuts.

Maybe someone around here can dig up the NALP 2005 survey results.  I haven't been able to find the chart lately.  But I remember that Tulane put 11% of its grads into biglaw, and I think Chicago-Kent managed to place around 6% into biglaw.  The numbers get a lot worse as you go further down.

Current Law Students / Re: 146 LSAT Score , 3.2 GPA - What to do?
« on: November 04, 2009, 10:35:18 AM »
I'd worry more about the below-average LSAT score than about the mediocre GPA.

Current Law Students / Re: How does one cope with law school debt?
« on: November 04, 2009, 10:30:17 AM »
I'm more worried about coping with taxes.
I'm more worried about coping with death.
