Yes, this is yet another prelaw posting/question but I was really curious about what y'all would have done the year or summer before to prepare yourself for law school. Would you try and refine a technical skill like speed typing and speed reading? Were there any things or concepts you wish you already had memorized? Were there times when you thought "Man, I wish I went over this stuff in the summer when I had time instead of wasting time on it now when I have a billion of other things to work on?" I was thinking of going over the Constitution again (haven't really looked at it since PoliSci and figure it would help a lot in Con Law. I know there is a possiblity of burn out before law school and that we should enjoy ourselves before law school, but I only want to spend little time on things that will help in the long term. I know this isn't something y'all like to dwell on here in the current law students thread but any helpful hints or incites would be greatly appreciated (especially given y'alls time constraint in law school). 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / The rejection letters never end!

Not to freak y'all out, but wait till you apply for summer jobs as 1Ls. My mail box is experiencing the Blitz Krieg all over again. I only sent out 60 applications, but I know that my mail person is hating me right about now.

I just came across this chart on the BYU website. Looks like it is a good starting off point for applying to schools based on LSAT/GPA numbers.

I have lost my addiction to LSD and haven't been here in over a month (I guess this counts as a relapse). I came across this site on LSD a few months ago and figured it would be good timing to post again. Though the tutorial is for upcoming SMU law students, I think it's good practice for anyone.

Good luck to all those starting law school in the next few weeks and hi to all those I have met on LSD this past year.

Well I finally received the anticipated reject letter from Baylor. My file was complete on NOV 8th. Glad I wasn't holding my breath.  ::)

Law School Admissions / Boy was I off the mark on my applications

Well I just found out I was waitlisted at Willamette. ::) This was supposed to be my "safety school." The west coast must of hated my application I guess. I get into to reach schools and waitlisted at two super reach schools. Moral of the story: It's hit or miss so take chances  ;)   

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / June Waitlist Fallout
« on: June 06, 2005, 07:50:12 AM »
Hopefully waitlists will be moving this week since a lot of the second deposits were due June 1. Whatever the outcome, rejections or acceptances, I am looking forward to final closure.

I know there is a general thread for waitlist movement already posted, but please post any insider info you might have if you called the schools directly. Also, anyone received any "Are you still interested?" emails this round?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Houston Waitlist Moving
« on: May 17, 2005, 08:22:10 PM »
Got rejected from Houston. No biggie, was going to remove myself for the waitlist if I didn't hear anything by June 1 (saved 37 cents ;)). Decision came in an email from Jamie Hammers. Be sure to check out your bulk/junk mail, the email was in my junk mail folder (glad I checked before I emptied it).

Just happy that one of my goals have been met: Lose 25 lbs of fat before school starts (hopefully I can keep it up throughout the summer). I know I can't workout hardcore during law school, so I am trying to workout 6 days a week. Still have at least 7 lbs more to shed before I am completely happy, but hey its a start.

Goal two: Pay off my credit card bills (paid $8K of $11K thus far) and get credit score from a 666 to at least a 700.

Goal three: Refine typing skills (don't know how slow I am but I bet it is at 35wpm mainly due to typing errors (I think I hit the backspace button 20 times just typing this post ;))

Goal four: Get off W&L and/or Vandy WL....OK maybe some goals aren't realistic.
