Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Syracuse $$$ vs. Seton hall $

Syracuse.  This is a no brainer.  When two schools are of equal standing you should almost always take the one that offers more money.

And the one that isn't in NJ.

TITCR. Solid advice for life in general.

Thank ye, I think so. I mean, seriously, New Jersey is the state that other states dump their toxic waste in.

seriously, syracuse is kind of a dump.  i've lived in both places, i'll take my suburban landfill over 'cuse in a heartbeat :)

feel free to PM me if you have any SHU/Jersey questions.  i live in the area and know a few people who either attend or attended SH law.   good luck with your decision!

Newark can barely beat Mumbai as far as quality of life goes. If you actually pass three years of law school in Newark without getting robbed at gun point, you get a golden star on your diploma. True story.

Word. NJ is the worst f-ing state in the Union, and Newark is possibly the worst part of the state (many contenders). Dodge ftw.

forgive me for asking this, but have either of you been to newark?  please don't knock a place based strictly on what you hear from 24 hour news networks.

it's a good place to start.  i got a 149 diagnostic and ended with a 162, and i really didn't study as much as i feel like i should have.  i had to work my ass off for that score and i'm still a little mesmerized that i got it, but i worked 50 hours a week while studying so i couldn't devote more than an hour a day to studying.  you'll be fine :)

I just hate TLS...we need more LSD'ers.

My LSN makes my sig make more sense. Maybe..

if you want to become a prosecutor or do work in county or federal court systems, i think SH is the better choice.  newark has federal & county courts and i know SH feeds well into these systems.  i don't have concrete numbers but i know a lot of the people working in the essex county prosecutor's office are SHU law grads.

this thread makes me wonder, do law schools really look hard at your criminal record?  i've never gotten so much as a parking ticket *knocks on wood* but i'm curious now.  i mean i understand that you don't might not want someone convicted of a violent crime or embezzlement coming to your school, but a marijuana offense seems kind of minor.  does anyone know how much a criminal record is taken into consideration?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: when did RC start getting more difficult?

Many people say RC is harder because the questions in the sections are evolving into more LR type questions.

yeah that's very true.  i also got a very bizarre RC question when i took the actual LSAT; i'll leave it at that to avoid the LSAC police from coming at me.  that said, i think if you can apply your LR skills to RC it really shouldn't be harder.

who's everybody?  i don't think they've gotten harder.  imho, people moan over RC because there's not too much you can do to study except practice.  as a result, it seems to be the least focused-on section for people yet it is worth more than the games.  come test day, if you put all of your energy into games and haven't really worked at RC, it's going to seem like an impossible section.  again, that's just my opinion.

I don't think you should get the idea in your head that comparative reading passages are 'harder'. I've actually been pretty happy with my scores on these..

Perhaps some think they're hard because of the two arguments to deal with..but they're much shorter, and you'll always have at least 2 questions about the similarities/differences between the two. You just need to sharpen your skill of quickly jumping to the passage & getting back to the questions..



I agree.  In a toss up, I'd rather read two short passages than one long one.  I always felt I did better on those questions but since I took the February 2009 LSAT, I have no idea how I actually performed.

i know some law students who live in the valentine apartments.  you do have to cross route 79 to get to campus, but there's no hill involved.  i used to live in a separate complex owned by the same company and i was very pleased with the building.
