With regard to NYLS, I have to say that $40K for tuition ALONE is a bit ridiculous. Add to that the cost of living in or around NYC and you're looking at around $60K+ per year....just food for thought.

getting in physical shape is key. you want to eat right, rest well etc. if you are unhealthy, you will need more sleep, will be less alert etc.FWIW, My sister is in med school and has friends in law school up with her at syracuse- she says med school is NOTHING compared to law school. She says she barely ever sees her law school friends (read, they hardly get out...meanwhile she goes out every weekend) and she's seen the work they do compared to her work and SHE feels sorry for them.
as for most rigorous academic experience? i know for a fact med school is hell on earth and i would assume a phd is tougher than ls as well.
Umm is your sister actuallyPASSING??
Seriously it's kind of ridiculous to think that med school is less difficult than law school. Absolutely no way.
Granted, law school is going to be tough but only as tough as you let it. You'll probably do more reading/concentrating/writing than you've ever done but it's 100% managable. I honestly think it's a matter of discipline. You have to be willing to let go of some of the things you love, only temporarily of course, and focus on learning the law. Does this mean never watching television or goin to a club or just hanging out? Of course not. But these things have to be done in proportion.
I have no expectations as to where I will rank in my class, but I fully expect to do well. Hard work can often take you further than even the brightest person in ur class...
hmmmm...you could be right. but they could argue that the money became theirs the minute you mailed the check out and since they stipulate it's non-refundable it's pretty much at their discretion whether or not they want to give it back to you.
I'm not sure that complies with general contract law. I thought that putting the check in the mail is your formal acceptance of their offer. However, you can withdraw your offer at any time before they accept (which occurs when they cash the check).
