Great advice! I have been looking for a tested schedule that works and this is fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing.

I'm 35 and will be a 1L this fall. This will be my third career (spent 5 years as a journalist and the last 8 in PR.) It should have been my first career, but I'm so glad I waited. I've had a great ride in my two other jobs and I'm much more mature now vs. when I was 22. Right now, I'm not nervous, I think life has taught me not to sweat too much. But, I am just excited to get this thing started already! Once you finally decide to take the plunge, the waiting can get excruciating.

For those just finishing up 1L, congrats! So, whether you're glad you went or not, perhaps you can pass along some advice? As an incoming 1L, I'm wondering:

-What was the hardest part of 1L (that maybe you didn't think was going to be hard, but was?)
-What was the easiest (or least hard)?
-Study groups -- good/bad?
-Anything that really surprised you that you didn't expect?

They definitely look at more than just LSAT, but I would also say that Buffalo is getting much more difficult to get into because of increased applications. I suggest that if you don't get in, try to arrange for a face-to-face meeting to see what you could do to strenghten your application. I would also suggest re-taking the LSAT. All this said, it should take about six weeks to get an answer.

OK - so was anyone at the accepted student visit? Any thoughts?

Depends, what are your numbers? I sent my stuff in right near the deadline last year and it took about 6 weeks for a decision. (I was accepted but deferred to fall 2007).

Again, it all depends on your numbers.

Who's with me?  And, anyone heading to the accepted student visit next week (April 14?)

It worked. Your original post has .com instead of .org - you should update it.

I will definitely read through it! Thanks for passing it along.

Just tried the site and there's a funky problem with it.  That said, I wonder if my issues would be similar to women at Harvard, Yale and other Ivys.

I will be going to a T2 and bet that I'll face a different set of issues than someone with a JD from such a prestigious school.  Not having seen it due to the problem on the site, I will reserve ultimate judgment. But, my initials thought is that we will have different sets of challenges and experiences in LS.

I do like your website, though, Susan.

Not only is the spamming of the board annoying, but so is being dishonest about the fact that it's not his blog. If he was upfront about this (and not using multiple names) it wouldn't be as bad. It says alot about one's judgment if you can't be upfront about something as silly as starting a blog.
