I received a waitlist letter from them on May 7.  I received an acceptance letter from them on May 17.  I am not gonna attend so you may be getting your acceptance letter as soon as I decline.

All are T-4 schools such as Oklahoma City University, Texas Weseleyan, Southern Law Center Baton Rouge.  As you can see the schools are regional because I am from Texas.  However, no other school is giving me a full ride.

If you had a full ride to Texas Southern would you go?  I am fully aware of the reputation they have.

I was just accepted to law school and was wondering what books or reading or prep course would be good for me going into law school?  What would you suggest that you wished you did or what did you actually do to help prepare you for the transition?  Thanks a bunch for taking the time out of your busy schedule.

Havent decided yet.  Still waiting on other school decisions.  Also I made a small mix up.  I was accepted to OCU, not OSU.  That is maybe a drop in a couple of Tier's type of mix up  :D

I am not sure what they mean by that email.  I received an acceptance email.  I am still holding out for other schools but it looks like I will be headed there as well.  Keep me posted if your actually accepted or not.

I get your point.  The truth of the matter is SYN and maybe even you will have a lucrative position upon graduation.  You may be in the position to show up, do your job, and go on vaction half the year.  However, the majority of graduates will not be in that position.  Just as SYN states that my position does not represent most students, your position and his does not.  There are so many seats in the selected schools that are selective recruited from.  That leaves a lot more people pounding the pavement or settling for less than what they may have been lead to believe.  What I am trying to advance is for most people if their motivation is nothing more than money, what will drive them after graduation when the job does not materialize, or they settle for 50k a year?  It may be safe for you to openly go to law school strictly for monetary reasons.  I just would advise anyone to go for these reasons.  As for being a face in corporate, that may be the attitude that is prevalent in field of law.  That does not hold true for all facets of lawyering.  Also may be I am too idealistic.  I mistakenly thought that most people held this view for going to law school.

SYN-
At any rate you are surely right that most people may not be in my position.  However, I will not discount the opinions raised by you or others that have been selected to attend one of the better institutions.  If I find myself in the postion to transfer, as this would be a viable option to excercise for people with my numbers, I will more than likely do so.

Not everyone works in public interest or for the poor plaintiff.  A lot of people work for companies and firms that usually divorce "justice" from winning.  Everyone I interviewed with clearly knows I am in it for the money (because most of them are too), and they could care less.  I'm not a horrible person, I will be an ethical lawyer, and I will probably be a damn good lawyer. I would just be a damn good something else if it paid better.
I do not think a person can be ethical and divorce law at the same time.  Those boundaries will eventually cross.  Also I am sure you actually like law, otherwise your premise will not sustain you in the field very long.  You may make loads of money, but if you’re not doing it for the right reasons, i.e. to help others, then you will run yourself out.  I say this because you may in the end be a great attorney and your employers will love you.  Your conscience on the other hand will not be as loving.  I speak of this after knowing people who have travelled where you excitedly are embarking.  I take issue with your premise for being an attorney.
