Studying for the LSAT / Re: Beginners questions

I think the logic games are the most intimidating at first, but then they slowly turn into a twisted sort of fun.  They can be the most satisfying part because you can usually tell if you've nailed them.  On the other hand, they can make you want to cry on the spot if you just can't figure one out.


The funny thing in reading the last few posts is that right new we're in the process of moving - we closed on our new house a couple of weeks ago, and my wife and I spent the night after the closing in our new house.  The only - and I mean the *only* - piece of furniture in it is our new bed, which we bought and had delivered that day.  :)

Ah, but the bed is the most important piece of furniture ;)

I've been getting positive responses from my family in the US, but usually just get dead silence and a blank look when I tell my collegues here at work in Austria.  That might be because the US lawyers that dominate our legal department here are notorious for being rude, self-centered, and downright mean.

Yes, I am definately underused.  It can make you doubt your own intelligence- as in are you really smart enough to do something more?  The mental rot is similar to spending months on the couch watching daytime TV.

I'll be buying a new bed, too.  What is it about major life changes that makes us all buy new beds?

I'm trying to make the same decision.  I'm moving to Denver from Austria (yes I am from the US, I've just been over the pond for a little bit) so I've been using Google Earth and online ads heavily. 

I don't want to have to drive to class- ever- so I'm looking for a place withing walking/biking distance and public transportation if there is bad weather.  I've heard there will be a light rail stop on campus in early winter, but the RTD (public transit) site is a nightmare to use.  It looks like it was designed by a high school science teacher in 1997 (no offence to high school science teachers.)  I hear undergrads and law students get free public transit passes...?

What size are you looking for?  My biggest problem is finding a place big enough for me, husband, 2 mountain bikes, lots of ski and snowboard gear, plus all that other stuff we need like, well, furniture I guess.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Hofstra Law T-Shirt

Haha, my hubby wears my Hofstra T and my Case T because they are too big for me.  Everybody asks him if he went/goes to Hofstra, and then they get a puzzled look on his face when he just answers, "No, but my wife is going to Denver..."

Gotta love those free shirts.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Deferring for a year

I would also be very interested to know how you got MORE $$ by deferring.

I graduated UG in 2000 and grad in 2005.  You're never too old for law school, just like there's always room for ice cream.

But I still think you should go to LS full time and skip the job.  With all those boomers retiring in the next few years, you're bound to get a job you want as much as this job when your are done with LS.  Difference is, after LS you'll most likely  pull a higher starting salary.

Doesn't it feel good to be wanted, though?

I thought a buckeye was a nut.
