Where should I go next fall? / Re: Tier 4 Law Schools

It was a mistake on my part to say Princeton. That does not change the fact that I could get into just about any Ivy league school out there with my stats.

@bigs: I have never held a job, so what? I still have more money. Have you heard of commodity trading and investments? I make more money off of dividends than anyone working in retail and fast food restaurants, not to mention, I make more money off of stock trading.

Law School Applications / Re: undergraduate GPA
« on: July 24, 2010, 11:25:34 PM »
Well I hold a 4.0 whilst going for 3 degrees, two of which are finished now and the last one I will finish in the fall. I took harder classes throughout my undergrad career, and can say with affirmation, I am much smarter than most people. The harder classes weighed heavily on individual thought and creativity which are essential skills a person needs in life to succeed. Go ahead and take the easy classes and you will wonder why people seem more competitive. They worked harder and it paid off for them.

Electrical engineering, microbiology, classical physics compounded with organic chemistry, and Latin my first semester.

Second semester finance classes, accounting, business management, classical philosophy, and another Latin class.

Summer semester, more physics, biology, engineering, and chemistry.

Fall semester of second year, more finance classes, accounting, and various other business classes.

Winter term, more finance, economics, and philosophy classes.

Spring semester of second year, more finance, (I finished up multi-variable calculus while doing PSEO), economics, accounting, abstract algebra II, and philosophy.

Summer, internship at UBS (was paid 2k/month for basically helping clients with questions they may have).

Fall semester of 3rd year, finished up most of the classes that pertained to international studies which were taken out of the various classes I listed above and finished the philosophy major.

Winter term, took the last of the international studies classes.

Spring term of 3rd year, fiannce, management, analytical mechanics, and quantum mechanics (physics).

Summer, well... I am resting.

My fall class list consists of finance, more physics, and my last economics class for the Finance major requirement.

Taking the harder classes helped my brain improve to greater depths and understand much more of the natural world around me. I finished up the requirement for pre-med taking all of those science classes which is also an added bonus for me. For those wanting to take easier classes, well... good luck. You want to work different parts of your brain, but whatever, your loss.

Why do I have a paying job then? While you who goes to the 82nd best liberal arts UNDERGRAD and you have never a job in your life and yet you act like you know what you are talking about when have nto even taken the LSAT. Shut UP and stop talking out of your a**!

You're a paralegal (operative word, paralegal). That is not much of a job and I could earn 3x much more after I finally graduate in the fall. Also, Carleton College is the 8th best liberal arts college in the country not the 82nd best.

I don't need a menial job as it won't even teach me a thing I need in life. Holding down some idiotic position as a manager at a retail outlet or some other job is not for me. That is the main reason why your prospects are so low as you held some common job and was bombarded by the views of the proletariat. I now have a 4.0 GPA and all I need is a 180 (a given as I studied as much as I needed to for the LSAT) and I can go to Harvard, Yale, or even Princeton if I want to. The only people who defend tier 4 schools are those who attend them.

Kids from tier 4 law schools have jobs working out of McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, Bargain Bin stores, cheap retail outlets, and JC Penny, so yeah, you're right they have jobs. Also, most kids from Harvard have jobs and the ones that don't are living off of either their trust fund or parents money and really don't need jobs.

Cooley will accept you.

I lol when I saw 3.49 and 140 LSAT. That is not good by any measure. You need to up the LSAT score by a larger margin say, 20 points?

56
State law schools? Don't listen to that guy. He has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. I am assuming you want to be not only marketable in most states but also have a leg up on the competition, right? Then practice for a few more months improving upon your score and read some Bible's on logic games, et cetera, and take a few more practice tests. When you feel confident enough, take the LSAT.

57
Acing the LSAT is more due to natural ability and work placed into it than just hard work. If you don't have the ability it will show. I have been scoring 180 every practice test so far and all the questions seem more elementary. When I do take the LSAT this fall I will score a 180 more than likely.

You will never step foot on the grounds of a Big Law firm by going to Cooley. That is all that needs to be said. Cooley is clown college for lawyers.

Every law school except for Cooley.

Take advice from someone who knows what they are talking about. I have seen first hand which school get different students into what type of jobs/firms. Go to Northwestern.
