Law Schools in California (particularly Stanford and UC-Berkley) and schools in NYC (Columbia Law, and the nearby Yale LS and HLS).  They are all great schools with similar tuition costs.  I wouldn't mind living in New York City or California.  I can't decide on a criterion to filter my list.

Despite a possible modification to the LSAT, is it a waste of time to beginning preparing early?

Yo, can we add third and fourth tier to the list so "some of us" don't feel slighted.



PM it; I can help you.

Anyone bored enough to read my PS and DS?

I am.   ;D  You can either PM it to me, or email it to me.

So depending on where you plan on practicing you would go to the highest ranked Law Firm in that area?  Or was it based on preferred weather conditions and the vicinity to large cities?

I like Boston Legal, too.  :)

RE: Subject of thread--

I took the LSAT zero times.  But, in a couple of years, when I take it, I'll ace it (hopefully).  :)

well here's one off the top of my head.

while up in cambridge I decided to go to the COOP. so i'm in one of the aisles when this guy approaches me. he's older, probably 35, kinda scruffy, but seemed innocent enough and i thought he was approaching me to ask a question or something. he's like "hey, aren't you in my something class?" and i was like "uh...nope sorry!" thinking he'd drop it and it was just a case of him mistaking me for someone.

this guy then proceeds to tell me i look like jlo (no i don't) and that he'd love to maybe grab some coffee. i was like "no sorry i'm meeting a friend right now" thinking he'd take the hint. instead he starts talking about how i'm the most beautiful girl he's ever seen (def.not) and how i have these killer legs (which i don't...not to mention it was the dead of winter and my legs weren't visible at all). he keeps asking to take me out and is sort of blocking my path so i can't leave. he gives me his number and is like 'call me anytime. i live with close by with my mother and i'm available anytime."

um hello?!? you live with your mother? and you're creepy as hell?! i don't think so.

i finally gave him a phone number to reach me at (the phone number for the Best Buy in my town, which i memorized when i was 16 just for this purpose) and finally he lets me pass.

If you don't believe your one of the most beautiful women out there, why would you have Best Buy's number memorize just in case a man would ask you out--stunned by your beauty?

I don't mean to be a male private part, but I'm just wondering... either you are modest, or lying.

Most Law Schools, with the exception of Harvard Law, Georgetown Law, and a few others, prefer to have academically diverse students (students from DIFFERENT UG institutions).  I did a little bit of research of NYU Law School.  I looked at in-depth statistics that indicate a large portion of students entering Year One at NYU from schools across the country, with a small chunk of students from NYU UG.  Yes, this is only one example; but I do know, for a fact, that some schools prefer to have their own advance to their graduate schools (such as, and ESPECIALLY, Harvard) whereas, most prefer to have fresh students so they can re-teach them everything in Law School.

I suppose financial aid also applies as a method of discouragement, and trying to squeeze out more money from the students--win:win situation for the LS.  They get a diverse body of students, or more money from local students.  Universities these days run like a business, not as an educational institution.  I believe the University of Chicago is one of the few schools that go against the grain and place a huge emphasis on learning, not money.
