Law School Applications / Can someone take a look at my resume?
« on: December 30, 2006, 02:47:24 PM »
It's crunch time baby, and I need someone to take a quick look at my resume and tell me if it looks alright.  Any takers?

Basically what my title says. From what some people have told me, (lawyers included), it seems like there is either biglaw where you make tons, or small firms where you make like 50k a year, and nothing in between that. Isn't there anywhere where you can make like 75k-90k?  Is that really how it is? And if it is, if you definately don't want to go into biglaw for obvious reasons, does it matter what law school you even go to, as long as it is in the area where you want to work?

Law School Applications / Can you cancel an acceptence to a law school?
« on: December 30, 2006, 12:37:49 AM »
I am applying this cycle, but i really want to take the June lsat because i think i can do a lot better on it, but i don't want to risk not doing better and having to wait a year for nothing. What if i apply now, defer for as long as possible and then accept an offer, and then take June. If i do amazing on June, is there any way to cancel my acceptence and pay a fee or something? And on the other end, if i don't do any better, i can still go to law school this cycle and just not cancel my acceptance.

Studying for the LSAT / How does my LSAT retaking scheme sound?
« on: December 30, 2006, 12:35:37 AM »
Im really not that happy with my december score, but im also not 100% confident i can do better, even though i really think i could.  I am applying like now, in the next day.  If i get into a place now and accept that offer, and then take the June LSAT and do way better, can i cancel my acceptence and pay a penalty fee or something?  So in case i dont' do better on the June LSAT, i can just go to the law school i was accepted to.

I just did like 10 of them with no problems, but now im on the U of Miami one, and everytime i try to hit "submit" to save it, it says "you have entered a term that is not active for electronic transmission. You must print this out and mail it directly to the school". Why the heck is it doing this? Someone please help!

I'd love to meet the person who invented common app and shake their hand. I love common app!

Law School Applications / Yet another application question from me!
« on: December 29, 2006, 04:27:58 PM »
I took the lsat in september but canceled, but in december took it for real. When the schools ask when i took the lsat,do i have to list both dates or just the one where i got a score?`

59
Every school i applied to is either a huge reach, a normal reach, or a slight reach/target.  I am not really happy with my LSAT score, and all the schools i applied to are basically the ones i would consider going to.  If i get in nowhere, ill have to wait a year and retake the lsat, which i don't really care about either. But honestly, ill be suprised if i get in anywhere this cycle. Hopefully a kick a$$ personal statement will help, i worked so hard on it.

Law School Applications / Has anyone not applied yet?
« on: December 29, 2006, 03:36:20 PM »
Im doing right mine now, hopefully im not too late. Im applying to mostly tier 2 schools though, with a few tier 1's.  Just takes so long to make my essay's perfect. I probably could have rushed my essays and applied right when my lsat came in, but i felt these are too important, especially me who is applying to all reaches and target/reaches. Who else is in the club?
