General Board / Anyone know about the 5 year requirement?
« on: April 16, 2010, 09:43:00 AM »
I know a lot of Bars require you to finish law school within 5 years.  Also a lot of law schools follow this by requiring the same thing.  I was wondering if you could ever finish it outside the timeframe if you did not want to take the Bar...

I live not far from Loyola now, but it's a big house with a lot of distractions, anyone found places yet?

Santa Clara / Anyone coming to SCU this year??

Hit me up,

Looking to see what everyone else is doing to prepare for next year...

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Law School business cards

I was wondering seeing these on my school's site, and hearing some people talk about them, do people really get these?  Are they worth buying when you start to hand out to friends/aquaintances?

Wait List / Anyone get this message from Loyola?

About being reconsidered and being in a select group being reconsidered and asking about your continued interest??

They got me all excited even though I had just about given up on them.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Question for 1L's about exams...
« on: May 11, 2006, 07:43:54 PM »
I already ordered myself a laptop, it seems like it's a decent size, yet I really hate laptop keyboards.  I also know that how quick you can type can also make a big difference in exam-taking. 
Now my question is, did your school allow, or did anyone use a full-size keyboard with their laptop for exams?  I already refuse to use the touchpad because I can't stand it, I'll lug aroud a huge regular mouse instead of using the touchpad, but a regular keyboard would probably improve the WPM count a ton.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Laptop backpack
« on: May 03, 2006, 09:47:32 PM »
So I'm new to needing to carry a laptop with my books, I don't think my backpack would cut it, at least not just my backpack.

Are you guys planning on carrying a backpack and a laptop bag, or just one?  Just wondering what I need to get for my laptop now...

I posted this topic a while back, I thought it might be helpful to update it.
I found this recommended from somewhere else
This backpack seems great, a lot of space, especially for the low price.

So I am in between these two schools, fairly close as far as US News Rankings go.

Went to visit UoP but not SCU, I liked UoP, but when I look at SCU it seems as if they've just been highly regarded for longer than UoP (UoP was Tier4 not all that long ago, they've improved a lot, but who knows where they'll end up).  SCU has some amazing programs like IP (4th in the country or something), but I don't know if I'll end up doing it or not, I don't have much of a science background.

Anyone have any opinions?

UoP gave me 12k for the first year, renewable if I stay in top 1/3, I don't know if I'll stay in the top 1/3 when over half the class might have a scholarship and be in the same position as I am, and the average salary from SCU is something like $125,000 where it's only like $65,000 or something really low at UoP.

Law School Applications / Question about Status-Checking
« on: March 22, 2006, 10:36:08 PM »
So I have to send in a deposit by April 1st like the rest of us, but it's probably about my 4th choice, the rest are still pending.

So I really don't want to send this deposit since I am hoping that I will hit 1 of the 3, although I really want to keep the seat in case I get rejected from all 3.  Are you guys calling or e-mailing to check your statuses?  Is it bad to check, and would you e-mail or call?  I really want to see if I'm gonna be able to hear back before April 1st or not. 

By the way I didn't apply until January, couple in the middle of Jan. and one at the end of Jan.

Where should I go next fall? / This year's US News Rankings?

When does this come out?  I am interested to see if some schools that are supposedly "coming up" still go up, and some schools which supposedly should have been T2 come out as T2, it would be great to be able to do this BEFORE deciding where to go though...
