General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: The Off Campus Housing Search
« on: April 06, 2009, 06:48:00 PM »
So you want other prospective law students, who have to visit schools and search for apartments themselves, to help pay for your Cornell visit and apartment hunting?

Wow.

um no. your critical reading skills need some work. I'm offering the fruit of my labor and expense to other Cornell 0Ls in the form of photos and information that could, at least potentially save them the cost of flying back or the pain of leasing site-unseen. In return I was thinking a small payment/donation to defray my own costs would not be out of the question.

Oh, so you DON'T want others to help pay for your Cornell visit and apartment hunting?  What you want is a payment/donation to defray your own costs of.... apartment hunting and visiting Cornell?  Hmm..

I think Miriam is being a total hater.  Clearly, her friend tried to make her a nice dress.  Therefore, contract or not, Stacey should get the car for free.

Did you read 1L?  I hear Harvard has tunnels because of how cold the winters are.  You should probably visit!

Wait List / Re: Dropping in on a school where you're waitlisted...

What about dress code for these semi-interviews?  Should I go in a suit of some kind?

Does anyone have any more suggestions for questions? And when you should try to schedule an interview (later in the wait list period, or ASAP)?

Dress to impress, but you should wear whatever you're comfortable wearing.  I don't feel comfortable in a suit jacket so I typically wear dress pants, dress shirt, and a tie.  Make sure you are well groomed, clean nails, all that jazz (unfortunately, with law school visit season upon us, my beard had to go).  I sometimes get a manicure when I'm going to have an important meeting because it makes me feel confident (my old job required dirty fingernails and it always grossed me out).

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Odds on keeping scholarship?

...OP- you know your situation best.  If you think your score is not a fluke and your ug grades are not your best work, you can reasonably assume that you are more likely to be better at law school than your average peer.  This will improve your odds from 50/50, but will not assure you of anything...

The odds are 50/50 because of the math involved, not because of how much work a student puts in.  It is a mathematical fact that 50% of the class will be above the median, and 50% will be below the median.  There is no improving the odds unless you can change the curve at the school =)

I visited IUB, talked to a student, 3.2 is the median, so 50/50 shot of keeping the scholarship.

Congrats, what are your numbers?

It's totally nuts, but I got 10k a year (no tricks to keeping it, other than passing) with a 2.5/167.  I'm sure you'd have some cash coming your way.

That is awesome!  Money from Illinois would make for a tough decision.
