By the way nealric is indeed correct.  Jerry Springer got his J.D. at Northwestern...

I dunno.

I suppose he really WOULD be ripe for the picking.  I can just imagine him saying, "THE JERRY SPRINGER COLLEGE OF LAW.  That has a nice ring to it"

Hmmmmmmm......[business brain starts calculating profits] chaCHING!

Choosing the Right Law School / Scholarships....subtle negotiation

Does anyone have any success stories about negotiating higher scholarships?  In other words, playing one
LS against the other?

Just wondering.

I respectfully disagree with you.  I live here in Florida and work within the legal community.  A&M's rep is pretty bad.  The key is to realize that it is what it is.  I think you are correct in that many folks get into A&M on less than stellar stats, do well, then transfer.  I know if I were AA and attending A&M, I would shoot for admission to Howard.

Don't leave my home state of Florida out.

FAMU: Go Rattlers!

LOL.  FAMU (Florida A & M) is indeed a HBCU, but FAMU law has a simply horrible reputation.  They let in folks that really shouldn't GO to law school (i.e. 130 LSATs/2.0 GPAs), have a monstrous attrition rate (go figure!), and a downright terrible Bar passage rate. They should invent Tier 6 just for A&M.

Howard is indeed highly respectable.  Although, were I a sharp AA guy or gal, the hell with a HBCU.  I'd ride the URM train to Cambridge or New Haven.

Just my two cents.

Now I see what my plan is:

I will simply tell LSAC that I graduated from the University of Zamunda (along with Eddie Murphy).

YALE, here I come!

Bigs, why not just simplify?
It all boils down to the fact that many folks just have an entitlement mentality.

We can't change them.

I dream of applying for a gopher office position at YLS.
I believe that is as close as I will get, LOL

Good luck, Marcus!


Mr. Messinger made good on his offer to send me his book, Law School: Getting In, Getting Good, Getting the Gold.   It is simply outstanding!  We military vets like it pared of any B.S., right?  Thane gives rock solid advice that just makes sense.

Of particular note is how he frames just how different our study methodology must be in order to be successful in law school.  I always wondered why I heard about students who were tops in undergrad, and subsequently crashed and burned in law school.  After reading the book, you will know why.



After you converse with LadyJ, I'd like to know if I can ask you a few offline questions about the clerkship experience...
