Choosing the Right Law School / Southwestern vs. Chapman
« on: January 24, 2012, 09:27:44 PM »
So I recently found out that I got into both Chapman and Southwestern and I am heavily considering both. It is a very tough decision for me to pick between the two. Does anyone have any good advice?

Incoming 1Ls / Environmental law
« on: January 12, 2012, 03:10:19 PM »
I was wondering if anyone is studying environmental law or is an environmental lawyer. I heard that its a tough area to get into because its really dry material and doesn't pay much. I am curious to see how true that is.

concurring: I would definitely make sure you take classes you enjoy and are easy for you. You seem like a conscientious person and when you need to get the LSATs taken care of you will. (Probably starting spring semester of Junior year.) In the mean time I suggest taking classes in your first year and a half that you can pull strong grades in to get acclimated to college. Than take some academically challenging classes which you find enjoyable as well.

I would say you should have a shot at a T-14 school. I am not sure if you already have but I would alert the schools you already applied to that you have a new lsat score. I here more and more about schools accepting the highest score and disregarding lower scores.
Best of luck

If I was you I would try to focus on individual questions and stop taking practice tests. Than when you feel more comfortable start taking practice tests again but always do time tests. Tests without time are pretty useless.

Law School Admissions / Re: Fall Semester Final Grades. Undergrad

I talked to someone about this and I am going to call each law school after the new years to see if they want it or not. I had a withdrawal so I am not to excited to show schools that but I did very well otherwise.

Law School Admissions / Fall Semester Final Grades. Undergrad
« on: December 28, 2011, 09:35:03 AM »
My fall semester just ended and I received my final grades. Do these grades need to be sent out to the law schools I applied to/got accepted to?
Thanks in advance.

Law School Admissions / Re: "Law School Interest" section

That's a good question. When I first applied I listed all the schools about 6-8 . Than about two weeks later I decided to apply to about four more schools. So the original 6-8 I applied to wouldn't know I applied to an extra four schools, and I doubt they care enough for you to have to call them to update your application. So I really don't know why that matters.
Maybe they want to know if you applied to say four schools in the same region they might want to compete over you. But with that logic they might also be say well we don't need to accept him because I am sure one of the other schools in the area will. Or it could be a psychological game where there trying to see where you think you should be getting into.
That's all I got.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Cornell vs. UCLA

Also the opportunities while in school are going to be limited at Cornel. Ithaca is a small town. I was interning in the DA's office while in Undergrad and during my last few weeks I saw some Cornell Law Students beginning to intern there as well. What I am trying to say is that during the school year your real world experience may be more limited in Ithaca than Los Angeles.
