Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Dog-friendly law schools?
« on: June 05, 2006, 04:59:22 PM »
I took my dog with me on a hike at Lewis and Clark, and saw a woman walking with her German Sheppard, on a leash, into a building.  Pretty cool!

Any other examples?

I believe that this would make law school a much more enjoyable experience.  Yale is the only school I've heard of, though, that does this.  Since getting into Yale is, oh, slightly difficult  ;) I was wondering if anyone knows of other schools with similar policies.

Studying for the LSAT / What are the PRECISE test conditions?
« on: June 02, 2006, 01:46:41 AM »
I've looked through the LSAC website, and I was surprised that some basic info isn't simply stated clearly.  Can anyone answer these very simple questions?

* Is the test still paper-based and not on a computer like the GRE?  (I assume it is, because one is supposed to bring #2 pencils, but I haven't seen this explicitly stated anywhere.)

* What is the situation with scratch-paper for working out problems?  Apparently - one cannot bring scratch paper.  Is scratch paper provided?  Or, are examinees limited to the margin space in a printed test booklet?

* What is considered valid ID - drivers' license only?  Expired passport? 

I believe that these issues with scratch paper space are very important - I think we should be practicing under conditions as close as possible to the real thing.  If we only have 2 sq inches per question of scratch space, then we should start getting used to that now!

Law School Admissions / Help: MUST one send in ALL transcripts?
« on: May 28, 2006, 10:21:42 PM »
I have a weird situation - a checkered past....

I first did undergrad at one school between '86 - '89, and failed out.

Then, I started undergrad over again at a new school, and graduated in '94 with a 3.3.  I did get transfer credit (no grades - transfer credit only) from some classes from the first school.

So now, I really want to ONLY send in my transcript #2 (from the second school), with its much higher GPA. If a human actually reads through my transcript #2, they would see these transfer credits listed.  Maybe ask questions - maybe not.  I don't know!

Does anyone have any feedback on this kind of situation?

Has anyone been in this situation?  Has anyone forgotten or neglected to send in one of several transcripts, and then been dinged by LSAC?

Thanks for any feedback!

See this thread - I started a poll to see if there's any name recognition for it out East:,61880.0.html

Choosing the Right Law School / Lewis & Clark Law School Podcasts

For anyone else who's thinking about Lewis & Clark: The Law Library is a great site, with lots of interesting Podcasts:

The "Open Access Symposium" is particulary interesting and well-produced.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / A Poll for East-Coast People

Thanks for the input everyone. 

I'm a transplanted New Yorker now living in Portland, Oregon.  L&C has a very good reputation around here, but I have no clue if people even recognize it as a law school anywhere else.


I just opened this book up, and jumped into Reading Comprehension passage #5, on p. 276.  The first two questions and answers seem incredibly poor and nonsensical.  The other four make sense ... and a friend and I didn't find them very difficult.

Anyone else have this book and can comment?  I'd love to hear some feedback - are we stoopid, or is it the book?
