Law School Admissions / Re: History Undergrad Major...and more
« on: December 11, 2008, 06:06:12 PM »
I started out as poli sci but switched to history after a year. I decided on history over poli sci because of the testing styles. History has more out of class long essays generally graded by professors. Poli Sci had annoying short answer tests graded by T.A.'s. I'm not saying every college is like that but I would be flexible in terms of your chosen major. I also prefer history as it has a bit more flexibility and I can take a variety of courses. I would take a history and poli sci class your first semester and then go from there. You may find that you enjoy other courses as well. I personally loved my English and Sociology courses.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Dickinson

Dickinson is private so that is why it is the same tuition for in-state and out of state. I've heard rumors that the Carlisle campus is being phased out, so perhaps eventually there will be a price drop for in-state. PSU is not a totally public school, it is consider a "land grant" school and receives less state aid than other state schools. I am a senior at PSU. State College is fun and I've heard that the law school is being quite generous with scholarships. I think the PSU name will help the school out a lot and the new building looks nice.

75% tuition scholarship to Michigan word yet on Tennessee but I'm not sure if they have sent out scholarship notices yet. I was just curious if anyone had ever visited Michigan State. I know it's cold:)

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / U of Tennessee? Michigan State?

Hey everyone. I was just accepted to Tennessee, out of state. What is your impression of the school? I have visited once. Does it have a good reputation in the South (I'm from PA but I hate the cold)? Does anyone know how generous they are with scholarships? Thanks for your help!

Also- Michigan State any thoughts? I really don't know much about the school.

Choosing the Right Law School / Help!? Applying
« on: November 04, 2008, 04:33:09 PM »
Hey everyone. I saw the post from a fellow Penn Stater asking for advice. My scores are similar to his but I wanted some suggestions of where to apply and my chances? I have a 3.8/159. I'm planning on taking the Lsat's again in December, and I'm hopeful as long as I can have a good day(my practice scores have been higher). My reach school is University of Virginia(unrealistic I know but a girl can dream). Semi-reach schools include Boston College, Tulane, Wake Forest, Temple, Alabama and Georgia. I have lots of safeties already taken care of. Would UPenn and Villanova be a waste of $? Any other suggestions? I also like the DC area. I don't have my heart set on any certain school. Thanks for your help! Best of luck to everyone!
