Hey thanks Big for the insight. I am looking into a few schools in L.A. and Chapman as well and I would obviously go visit the school before I decided to attend. I am more or less trying to figure out if it is even worth a visit and consideration of attending. I want to get into entertainment law which is why I am considering the L.A. area. And my grades aren't on par with UCLA but they are good enough where I might see some scholarship money from schools like southwestern. I am happy to hear that you know people who graduated from Southwestern who are doing well for themselves.

Hey I am from the East Coast and also applying to a bunch of schools on the West Coast so visiting isn't the easiest option. Does anyone have any insight personally, or second hand knowledge of the school? I appreciate any feedback.

Its a mixed bag.. I am about to finish undergrad but from what I have done I really like trial advocacy. But it was always a passion of mine to get into the entertainment industry and I actually do have a considerable amount of connections that route.
Whats I'm really concerned about is the overall credibility/perception of Chapman and how the students like the school.

Hey does anyone have any insight into the Chapman Law School in California. I knew its a relatively young school but it is ranked tier 2 and top 100 law schools. I have been considering entertainment law and I know they have a pretty extensive program but I don't know anything more than the information they sent/their website.
Any additional information would be very appreciated.

I have talked to a few students who go there. Ones a 2L and the others a 3L and the both like it a lot. They said that the Professors are terrific and that there are a lot of opportunities for jobs and paid internships. The 2L student was telling me he got a paid internship this summer going into his second year.

I visited NYLS today and was very impressed. The building is very modern with incredable views of the city.the library was also very nice with plenty of places to study. There was also plenty of places to sit and study throughout the entire building. It seems they offer a lot of differnt subjects of law. They also seem to offer a decent amount of clinics and law journals. The price tag is the only thing that concerns me but they have a priced fix menu if you will. Your tuition remains the same for all three years. Allegedly this makes NYLS competitivly priced in the NYC area.

To update this post. I actually visited Suffolk this past fourth of july and I was very impressed. They had a really nice facility and their library was huge with tons of books and space to study. I talked to a relative of mine who's a lawyer in Massachusetts, (not boston) who works with several Suffolk graduates who all liked the school very much.
I also happened to visit Brooklyn law today. I didn't sense much of a difference between the two schools other than the obvious difference in selectivity between the two schools. I have to say that I will end up going to what ever school gives me the most money because it doesn't seem like jobs are to plentiful out of any school unless its a top 10.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: testmasters vs powerscore HELP!!
« on: July 12, 2011, 08:25:24 AM »
I took testmasters course and as I agree with the instructor bit, it is also a big factor on how hard you will be able to work. I took the june lsat so the tail end of the testmasters course was during my finals week in college. That impinged on my study habits for sure. Having said that, I do believe the course was worth every dollar, especially if any scholarship money can be squeezed out.
Hope that helps.

I had about a 140 1st time and with a lot of hard work I pulled off a 157 on my real LSAT.
