Choosing the Right Law School / Re: DUKE ACCEPTANCE!!!!!!

Wow. Congratulations! I can't believe how very, very behind that's making me feel!  Good luck next year!

*shrug* Interesting reaction. It's different than expected after talking with a few attorneys and current law students. But, I guess everyone's different. Thanks for taking the time to answer!

Gah. I switch between thinking this decision (which school to go to) is going to make all the difference in the world and thinking that after my first job no one will care where I went. I'm definitely not getting into a top10 school.

Thanks again.

Choosing the Right Law School / Which schools put priority on Technology?
« on: October 09, 2006, 10:52:09 PM »
One thing that I think will distinguish the 'lawyer of the future' is the ability to use technology effectively. Undergraduate work has been great, but I'm tired of learning a bunch of theoretical stuff -- If I'm going to go into major debt, I want a school that is going to teach me more than the theory of law. I want one that is going to put an emphasis on using technology in the classroom -- and not just powerpoint presentations! Certainly these are things I can teach myself, but which schools are actually incorporating them into their curriculum?

I think it's important to learn about practice management programs, making presentations for trials, doing research, etc. This of course is not my MAIN concern for picking a school (I'm looking at schools with good international law programs, possibilities for joint MBA or LLM in international business law, 'good' location...), but it IS important to me that the schools be wired and the professors adept at bringing us into the way law is practiced this century.

Is anybody else making this a big part of their considerations of schools? Which ones have you decided have incorporated lots of technology into the classroom? Which ones have you struck completely off the list?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: TestMasters180 is Score Perfect in Texas?

I'm going to start studying on my own between now and then, but if my score isnt where I need it, I'll be taking the course in July (starts on the 8th). I have no idea who the instructor will be - they haven't even released a class location yet!

How much did your score increase with the class?

Even if it's darn near impossible, isn't it worth a shot if you really don't want to wait another year? Sounds like you answered your own question to me! What do you have to lose besides a $70 app fee and perhaps a little self-esteem?

September??? That's crazy!

Why? Because I'll be in school? At least I'll be in TOWN. I have a trip planned through the June LSAT since before I decided to apply to law school (trip planned in October, decided to apply in January - how's THAT for backwards planning?).

Who is planning on taking the LSAT on September 30? Anyone out there?

Have you started studying for it yet?

I've started looking up prep courses, but am undecided between Powerscore and TestMasters (which in Texas seems to be called Score Perfect - does anyone know anything about this?), but those don't start till July. I wish I could take one sooner so I could base future studying off of what they teach in the course, but there simply isn't time for me during this semester.

So, who are you and what have you done so far/planning to do soon to start getting ready for this whole application thing?

Studying for the LSAT / TestMasters180 is Score Perfect in Texas?
« on: February 26, 2006, 01:20:15 PM »
I'm trying to register for one of the prep courses over the summer. I'm undecided between Powerscore or TestMaters180 (which is the REAL one, yes?). But, it seems in Texas TestMasters is called Score Perfect, instead. Does anyone have more information about this?

Is it the same thing/same company/just as good?
