I'm focusing my bids on NYC.

Yeah, I'm thinking it may have been a mistake to bid on so many DC firms.  I'm afraid the mix of the two markets will mean I don't get what I want anywhere.  I guess we'll see...

Get the best GPA you can.

Beyond that, enjoy college!  It should be a fabulous life experience, and it would be a tragic waste if you spent the entire four years doing only what you needed to do to get into a good law school at the expense of other things.

Worth a shot, at least.

Why?  Are you hunting mastheads for which 2011 LSDers made it?   :)

Haha, was it so obvious?   :P

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: First Year Law Classes

At CLS, we only have required classes during first year.  They are: Civ Pro, Contracts, Con Law, Criminal Law, Property, and Torts.

However, it seems that you are sort of expected to take corporations, tax, administrative law, and evidence at some point during law school.

Hey Wally, when do you guys find out about Law Review?

I know the security clearance thing asks about drug use within the last year...I think it's probably a bad idea to withhold information there.  I'm not sure whether occasional marijuana use is an automatic ding, though...

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 170 last October, 177 this June!

Congrats on all your increases!!!
I wanted to ask everyone you for their opinions on what there study regiments were like to score a score in the 170's as well as any helpful tips you may have?
I'm aiming for a 173 and would appreciate all your feedback.


I took testmasters and thought it was really helpful.  Improved my score from a 166 to a 173.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: 3.1/164 GPA any scholarship hopes?

Yeah, I think the key for scholarships is to be in the top 75% of a school's LSAT/GPA range, right?

That seems to be a guarantee. But I've also seen people with low GPAs get paid if they had an LSAT in the 75%+ range.

Yeah, true.
