Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logical Reasoning
« on: May 27, 2014, 10:17:40 PM »
Remember LR makes up have of the exams score, if you are not reasonably happy with your performance in this area, it does not do you much good to take the exam. If you are not feeling ready, push back to the September test.

As for peeping, be willing to mix things up, if the Power Score books are not working for you try one of the others, either Manhattan or the LSAT Trainer (the trainer has several chapters free on their web page... http://www.thelsattrainer.com/ )

Good luck,

William Mitchell / New Hybrid Online JD Program
« on: May 25, 2014, 08:48:55 PM »
William Mitchell has recently been approved by the ABA to offer a hybrid online JD.

http://web.wmitchell.edu/admissions/hybrid-program/

The inaugural class gets underway in January of 2015.

Personally, I have been eagerly awaiting for something like this for a few years now, and the timing worked out rather nicely for me. Last year, before I had heard of this new program, I had started taking steps to apply this cycle to more traditional part-time programs near where I work. When I heard that this hybrid program had been approved by the ABA, I happily applied.

A little over a week ago, I received word that I have been accepted into this program, and I am looking forward to the experience.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: william mitchell hybrid

I had applied in April, and was told that the initial plan was to have the first wave of acceptances to be issued in June. Then in early May, I received an update stating that they would make their first set of decisions earlier than originally planned (in about two weeks from that message).

On the 16th of May I received my acceptance, and scholarship. If I recall correctly, there is an article that stated that the ABA has approved them to have a hybrid class of up to 96 students, although I do not know how large they are actually aiming for the class to be.

From the sounds of it, in quick conversations with people at the admissions office, it seems that first round of decisions is not going to be the last, and that they are actively accepting applications.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: ABA online law schools

I have recently been accepted into WM's hybrid online program.

Given that this will be a first for WM, I am sure there will be growing pains, but I am looking forward to it nonetheless.

I have found the LSAT Trainer to be very helpful.

The author provides several chapters for free on his website.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Terrible Dec LSAT Score, Need Advice

It seems that almost no one averages scores anymore.

I would recommend this article on the topic of retakes.

Law School Applications / Re: Resume - High School
« on: July 30, 2013, 08:51:13 PM »
I do not think that you will gain anything from listing your high school on your resume, even with the circumstances that you describe.

I suspect that the first real movements to a ABA approved distance learning JD will end up coming as a program expansion from some already ABA approved school.

Many of these schools have already established online course and sometimes even degrees for other programs. Converting these tools to classes for a JD program will not require a great deal of effort.

Congrats on the stellar GPA, I am sure that it will help.

Which of these schools have you received acceptances from?

You should keep in mind that you can likely receive a quality education from any of these schools, it is unlikely that the world will be beating a path to your door upon graduation from any of these schools. On the bright side your debt situation will likely be better than most of your peers.

What was your MOS?

Meta Discussion / Re: Why can't I search?
« on: January 30, 2013, 01:28:12 AM »
I believe that the search function is not operational at this time, but on the bright side, this site does seem to allow its contents to be indexed by search engines. Hence you can go to google and type in your search term, then append site:http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org and you will be able to get results matching your search from this site.

For example, if you were interested in the LSAT, and the google prompt enter:

     LSAT site:http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org

Happy Hunting,
