Current Law Students / Re: curves? i dont get it.

In the situation you described I would rather have the 3.3. And my resume would either read "GPA 3.3/4.0 (Top 10%)" or simply read "Top 10% of Class".

by your logic GPAs were pointless in undergrad too. every school has a curve, whether its intentional or not. some school's grades are inflated. some are very tough.

that fact that this is a new revelation leads me to believe ignorantly blissful in your ugpa. maybe now you can look back on it and realize how worthless it was. i bet you were a hi gpa / low lsat splitter who bitched and moaned about not getting recongiiton for your 'effort'. welcome to life.

Is there a place to find out more info about the fitness review? I want to know if I should be worrying about anything in my past.

Some schools don't rank below the top 10 or 25%

Current Law Students / Re: is a JD a masters or a doctorate degree?

but you go on and become a Master of Laws and a Doctor of Laws (LLM & LLD) sometimes also referred to as Doctor of Juridical Science (J.S.D. or S.J.D. or D.J.S.)

I understand that it was pretty expected.  They completely botched last year's cycle.

What happened last year?  How did the botch the cycle?

Admissions director quit to go to Ave Maria, assistant director went on maternity leave, and outside admissions counselors were brought in. Around 825 people were admitted as compared with the typical <600. The desired class size is somewhere between 170-180 and 230 decided to attend, some 160 of which were male. The school paid about 30 guys off to come in 2007, so now there are only 70 male slots and the rest are for women.
ND students apparently can't do math?

Bump because the new list is out. Someone update.

edit: and regarding Texas, I believe 29 is accurate. We double checked these numbers a few times.

very cool that this is still getting passed around. also saw we made it into some profs blawg.

so this required 'work'.... hm

I will finally graduate next spring, 8 years after I began working on my degree.  I took a ton of breaks, and the longest I have gone straight through is 4 semesters.

For all my fellow school haters, I would say to take your time and don't put yourself on someone else's schedule.  If you need a break, take it!  When I did go to school, I did well, and have a 3.7 GPA to show for it.

so you showed up every now and then, and when things were going well you stuck with it. but when they weren't you bitched and moaned to a shrink, got her to support your medical withdrawals, and never took a hit to your gpa. kudos. i hope you find a lovely firm that gives you a week of vacation for every week of work. or if you're interested in government work, a judge that will give you a continuance because you're not really "feeling up to it"
