General Board / Re: 4th Tier
« on: June 17, 2009, 12:06:32 PM »
my gpa in my undergrad was sub-par...lsat wasn't through the roof either. the school i'm attending is in my home town so staying with my parents helps me save some cash.

is making under 60 that bad? i would think it would lead to higher paying jobs over the next 10 years?

Is it just the current economy that's making it hard to find jobs?

Like I said, I'll be at a 4th Tier school and part of the reason I'm going is a tough job market.  I'm hoping to find something when I'm done with school that pays decent and will lead to higher paying jobs through time.

Not much you can do now-a-days with a Communications degree...I'm hoping law school is the right choice

General Board / 0L Question
« on: June 09, 2009, 11:32:17 AM »
Since deciding to go to law school, people have been asking me what type of law I'd like to practice. I tell them, "It's too early to decide, I hope to find something I like."

Now, I'd like to say I'm going to law school to make the world a better place, but mostly I'm going to find a good job and make good money.

I know criminal law isn't the money maker...so, what type of law is?

I want to start law school with a running start...is there ANYTHING I can do to get a head start? Are there legal writing books I should check out? Is there something like 'Crim-Law' for Dummies on book shelves?

Any suggestions

General Board / Letters of acceptance
« on: March 27, 2009, 11:31:17 PM »
I've been accepted (and wait-listed) to a number of schools, but haven't heard from two or three others...is this normal? does it mean they're waiting on others to reject them before allowing me in??? details, please

hey, sorry it took so long for my reply.  Their letter came in a regular envelope...slightly more 'manilla' than white. When I got it I thought it was a rejection letter because it wasn't in a big envelope.

Good luck
