Current Law Students / Re: Woul I need to retake the Bar?

A lot of answers to these types of questions can be found at the ABA website section on Bar Admissions.

(I know this thread is old, but I figure someone bumped it a reason)

I'm 99.9% sure I'll be attending Boyd. I visited this past weekend (open house), though my mind was pretty much already made up. I think it is exciting to be accepted at the only ABA ls in the fastest growing area of the country. I was given a tour by an alumnus who now practices in criminal defense and she stated that the city of LV (and in particular, it's legal community) is "very proud of THEIR school". I like the small class size and the emphasis the school seems to put on it's various legal clinics. Another consideration is the reasonable cost of tuition. For me this is a win-win. Now, I just have to sell my house in CA, and line up a job transfer. Fortunately neither of these should be too difficult.

Thanks. I'll be PT and working FT. Not sure what my work attire will be, but it will be nice to be comfortable in LS classes (at least in regards to what I wear).

Someone posted a similar question on the pre-law board, but I thought it could best be answered here. So, how do most law students dress?

Current Law Students / Re: Chuck Norris!

This summer I shall apply for a transfer to Harvard Law School.  In the correspondence, I shall include only a blank application along with a picture of Chuck Norris entitled "Do you know who my father is?"  According to my calculations, I will receive a prompt acceptance along with a full scholarship.

I actually tried this last year. WARNING: IT DID NOT WORK! I receieved a somewhat intimidating telephone call from ttheir admissions rep. He said,"Listen, I"ve met Chuck Norris. I know Chuck Norris, he's a friend of mine. You sir, are NO Chuck Norris!" I wet my pants and hung up the phone without another word.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: How do you plan to dress during the 1L year?

Most people dress the same as they did in undergrad, "dressing up" only when there is a big event where they want to impress someone.  Wearing a sport coat to law school (at least in the Midwest) will have you labeled "tool" faster than you can sew elbow patches on tweed!

I think wearing sport coat everyday anywhere will have you labeled as a tool. Unless, of course, it is required, or maybe part of your work attire. 

I wear jeans, shorts, T's, sweats, or whatever I feel like. Just like pretty much everyone else.  No need to "dress for success", when your success is even judged until finals.  Just my $.02

To The OP: YOU GO GIRL!!!  My wife has been a staya ta home mom for the past 13+ years, and despite the financial sacrifices (and near hardships) that we have had to endure, I count this decision amongst some of the wisest we have ever made. Don't be fearful but find a way to show how your expereince has made you into a potentially successful law student. Just Go For It!
