Out of curiosity, how do they accomodate your disability?  Do they give you more time?  Sharpen pencils for you?  Read it to you?... I'm not trying to be mean, I'm actually wondering.

Yes.

Does being a part time student hurt your chances of getting a summer internship after the first year?

As 2Ls are starting to think about fall recruiting and many 3Ls are currently working for law firms, which of these firms would YOU want to work for?

It most certainly DOES make a difference which of those schools you attend.  As yourself WHERE DO I WANT TO LIVE?  Don't worry about what area of law interests you, as most law schools do not produce specialists (even if they "rank" on the USNEWS specialty list), and most big firms don't want to hire specialists, with the possible exception of IP people.  Also, the rankings should be only one factor in your calculus.  Not that helpful, I know, but unless you know where you want to live, there's no answer to your question.


Well here is how things break down for me.
Accepted : Temple, Pitt, Wake, University of Minnesota
WL: GW, BU, Vanderbilt, William & Mary
Rejected: Penn, Georgetown, Northwestern


What would you do?

Good to see that a "Hastings" thread has started. I'll be starting this Fall. I live in Oakland at the moment and will commute to campus. Where does everyone else intend to live? Anyone else traveling from the East Bay? If so, maybe we can carpool.

I was in a similiar situation, had my record sealed and contacted an attorney for advice.  There is a difference between being "arrested" and being "convicted." Read each application carefully and mention the request to your lawyer.

Thanks for your reply! That's good to hear.  As for the poor LSAT condition, I was not the only student who filed a complaint.  Try taking the exam on a tiny fold out desk and having to put your pencils on the floor and answer sheet underneath your booklet because you have no space.  You would lose significant time also.  And, by the way, I prepared full time over 2 months.  I simply wanted LSAC to include a cover letter describing the conditions with my applications.
