General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Second Thoughts.

Also having similar thoughts, though I haven't done anything beyond paying a seat deposit.  I certainly don't want to burn any bridges if I decide on not attending this fall, so would a letter explaining my circumstances addressed to the administration suffice, if this is what I decide?

Good point.  The point difference I need to make up is only 3 points, which isn't much.  Looks like I have to hit the books again and prep for September.

I will elaborate.  I applied for a JAG position and was subsequently denied because of my LSAT (this branch requires a min score).  I've been given the option of re-taking the LSAT and should I raise my score, I'll be automatically selected for the program, since I qualify in all other areas.  It seems like a no-brainer, although I REALLY do not want to take it again.  But in light of these circumstances, I am inclined to suck it up and re-take.  I'm grateful to possibly have this gig lined up after graduation and the only thing holding me back is this...

Thanks for the input.

General Board / Re-take?

Am I even allowed to take the LSAT as a law student?  If I am eligible, my concern is that LSAT prep will interfere with my first-year studies.  Is this a realistic fear?  Is the risk of re-taking the LSAT in school worth it, if it leads to a concrete job prospect later on?

Anyone have any thoughts on these programs, in particular the collaborative note-taking functions?

Anyone have any experience with 10.1" netbooks?  I'm considering Samsung, Asus, or MSI.  I recently checked one out and am concern about the screen size, specifically, toggling multiple screens.  Any thoughts from those who own a netbook in this size?  Has it worked for you?  The 12.1" look a bit more manageable.

I just bought an 8.9" netbook (the Acer Aspire One) and I adore it, although I probably wouldn't be comfortable with it as my only computer.  It's great for taking notes in class, though, and I actually did my property outline mainly on the netbook.  You get used to the screen size and keyboard size very quickly, although I do recommend an external mouse.

I think I'll go with the 10.1", though I would prefer something in the vicinity of 12" or 13" with cost being the only trade-off.  I've heard that they are great for a law students' needs such as note-taking and outlining as you mentioned.  Plus you can't beat the portability and long battery life.  This would act as a secondary comp, with my desktop as my primary.
