I guess 5 would be more.  I really have no idea though.  :-\

Which law school are you attending?

I'm afraid you've run out of your allotment of questions for this thread.  :P

What, do my numbers look crazy?  ???

General Off-Topic Board / Re: What to pack for law school????

Plenty of briefs

(was this too obvious, or sublimely clever?)

It's funny until you go on a trip and realize that you've forgotten to pack any at all.

And too obvious.  :P

I was trying to picture Mr. Linderman in my head.  This is what came to mind:

Law School Admissions / Re: What IS a Legal Education?

Legal Education: The process of learning how to respond to every question with "It depends," and then laying out all the things that it depends on and why it depends on them.

Your MBA is a soft factor that will be taken into account, contrary to what the admissions "experts" on this board say. If you don't end up where you want to first year, as long as your grades are good at the end of the first year, apply to transfer somewhere else. A former classmate and a friend of mine, former Army, did this very successfully.

It will be taken into account, but the question is how much?  It probably pales as a soft factor compared to the actual military experience. 

And it's dangerous to go somewhere based on the assumption that one will transfer; grades are unpredictable, and plenty of your classmates will be looking to get good grades and transfer as well.

OP: I can't tell you how admissions officers will consider your rather unusual situation, but I think your best course of action would be to thoroughly prepare for the LSAT and to explain your circumstances when you apply.

Good luck!  :)

Hi everyone,

Does it matter where I go to undergrad? I am paying for my own college and i obviously cant afford a private school, if i go to a large public college will i still have a chance at a t14 school?

It doesn't matter all that much.  You can go to a large public college and still go to a top law school.  :)

Wow, pretty unanimous thus far.
