That's pretty stark. From what I gather, UT's numbers look worse than either of those.

what wrong, obama not start enough wars?
No meaningful difference between the 2. The only difference is that Obama likes to use more sensitive language and bans phrases like 'axis of evil' and 'war on terror'. Substantively, they are both 100% exactly the same thing especially with Secretary Clinton being equivalent to male private part Cheney.
Personally, I found E&E's pretty helpful, but they shouldn't be your only source of review or completely replace the textbook.
The usefulness of an E&E heavily depends on how your professor teaches the class. For example, my Civ Pro teacher actually recommended the E&E and it exactly reflected what he taught. Whereas in Contracts, my professor heavily favored the Restatement over any other authority, and the Contracts E&E would discuss the UCC at great lengths (you'll learn this nonsense when you're in school, don't sweat it now). The Torts one was decent, and I personally found Sprankling on Property more helpful than the E&E. But the main point is that 1) it depends on how the professor teaches the class, and 2) it is a supplemental, it doesn't completely replace a textbook / hornbook.
I'm just looking for general information on what types of financial aid are typically available to law school students. I'm looking at starting school in the Fall of 2012. I'm 26, and I am hoping to have my car note paid off by then, a small nest egg built up - and the only expenses I would have while in law school are rent, utilities, and car insurance. I've never qualified for aid that was based on "financial need" - which I think is complete crap considering I make around $35,000 a year. My credit is in the toilet (unfortunately, that's one of the side effects of divorce), and I am wanting to know what types of aid might be available for me. Private loans are definitely out, as I am not sure I will have built up my credit sufficiently by the time I get to law school.
Also - is poor credit something that should be explained in the Addendum when you apply to law school? I know sometimes the State Bar will be made nervous becauase a lack of capability with your own finances demonstrates a lack of capability with someone else's. Any suggestions you have would be much appreciated.
I was recently involved in a car accident where the other person was at fault as determined by both insurance companies. They paid to fix my car already, but now I want to file a personal injury claim with the other persons insurance company without hiring a lawyer. Where can I learn the proper procedures and forms? Does any body have any sample demand letters I can use? Please help...
Hmm alright so I am in a somewhat similar situation.
I am planning on taking the June Test and was preparing on my own using the PowerScore books. I've found them helpful so far but was considering taking a class.
I've already invested in the PowerScore books and all of the actual LSAT preptests. Is it worth taking a class at this point or should I stick with the method I've been working on so far?
I would advise fellow forum members to be exceedingly careful about dispensing legal advice if you are not yet admitted to the bar. Perhaps it'd never happen, but you'd be dancing dangerously close to practicing law without a license.
I have passed the bar. However, this is a hypothetical, and I am not giving legal advice.
The problem is that, when this inevitably gets challenged (as it already did in Baake) in 25 years, it will lose and go away. You're discriminating on the basis of race. The court in Baake explicitly said that this won't be okay in 25 years. It won't be around too much longer.
