Current Law Students / Highlighting vs. Harddrive
« on: June 23, 2006, 04:44:21 PM »
I am reading LawSchool Confidential.  The book recommends the highlighting method for breifing cases right in the textbook.  I took an undergrad conlaw class and we did that sometimes (when we actually briefed)... But, it seems like with modern technology, it seems more sensible to type a brief beforehand so that notes can be simply added in from lecture.  Any opinions on this?

I think you can get one note for mac as well

>you have to download a seperate installer for SP2.  It's about 30 megs, so it's not too bad, especially off the microsoft site.

I just got a Mac, and I am not very familiar with everything yet.  So, you are telling me to go to microsoft and download SP2 then OneNote?

Law School Admissions / Re: Reapplication
« on: April 22, 2006, 10:43:40 AM »
Although I did not apply to top 7 schools... I may be reapplying next year because I have my heart set on one school to which I am presently on the waitlist (UofArizona).  One good thing about Arizona is that the dean of admissions offers to meet with students that were not accepted to tell them how they can improve their package if they plan to reapply.  You should check if any of the schools you applied to would be willing to do the same.

Since you cancelled your score, it might not hurt to take the LSAT again if you think you can do significantly better.  While I don't know what your original LSAT score was nor your GPA, bringing up your index can never hurt.  Consider working in the legal profession.  One or two years may help because you can get new letters from your employer.  Think about getting a paralegal certification from a comunity college.  Anything that shows your continued interest in the legal profession and your determination to get in cannot hurt.

Good Luck... hopefully one of those waitlists will turn around and you wont have to worry about this at all!

Arizona apparently had 100 more applicants this year than in past years, at a time when they were expecting applications to be down.  The waitlist is in the process of being sent out.

But, believe me, I understand.  I sent my app in November and I haven't heard yet either ( I am assuming I am on the waitlist).

Law School Admissions / WAITLIST-- WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?
« on: April 18, 2006, 12:49:30 PM »
Hi.  I have been lurking around on this site for a few months now reading what ya'll have been writing.  I haven't contributed yet, mostly because I only applied to one school and haven't had a lot to contribute.

I post today with a question that I would like your opinions on....

What's the point of a waitlist?  From what I have read some schools only let in about 10 people off the waitlist each year (and sometimes have 100 on it).  Why not only put 20 people on it and let the other 80 people know that they are rejected straight out?  If placed on a waitlist, and continued interest is expressed, what are one's chances of actually getting in? (I am sure it varies from school to school... I personally applied to University of Arizona)

2nd Q= do you think the schools take the time after final transcripts have been released to re-rank the waitlist based on Spring grades?

I suppose all we can do is speculate, but if anyone has any inside info, please please share it!
