Studying and Exam Taking / Re: How Many Hours Do You Study Per Week
« on: December 15, 2009, 04:05:45 AM »
I put in about 50-60 hours throughout the term (including class time), but I was doing all of my classwork, outlining, and going through supplements at the same time.  Since I followed this method continuously, my workload didn't amp up a ton during finals and I was able to get 7-8 hours of sleep per night during crunch time.  I did take weekends off completely until the last month before finals, though.  It's really about how you organize your schedule and how efficient your study time is.  I've seen others spend 80 hours a week "studying," which really means about 50 studying or in class and 30 on Facebook and G-Chat.  That's an easy way to burn out and not learn the material even though a lot of time is being put into school.

Why is University of Maine ranked in the top 100 then also in the tier 3??

Apparently they always do that with the #100 schools. Someone on TLS checked it out in last year's magazine.

idk why anyone would question the legitimacy, because its in a magazine. the other thread that has it on a sheet of paper looks suspect, but this looks spot on! Especially with the new ranking for part-time, how would it not be real? no one is that good.

It's also been determined that the sheet posted two or three days ago on TLS was legit, as far as the numbers go... it is thought to have been a early mock-up of the article.

USD went up 21 spots from #82 to #61. Talk about a killer leap.

Just figured it out--a TLS poster has last year's magazine and apparently the #100 schools are always listed in both tiers.

This definitely looks legit, but why is Gonzaga ranked in the T100 and Third Tier?

I don't know... same with a couple of other schools, too. We've been trying to figure it out on TLS for awhile.

If this is legit,  CU-Boulder falling 13 spots is pretty big.

It's legit. She bought the magazine early from a newsstand in NYC.

It's actually the same pic that leaked on TLS last night... I think that's where they took the photo from.  Here's a link to that thread: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=69124.  It has been widely debated as to whether the leak is real or not.  Personally, I'm inclined to think it is legit.
No way.

If you check out this link, US News explains that they may change the methodology to factor the PT medians into the overall score, as well as scoring the individual part-time programs. This would explain Fordham's fall.
