I'd vote for Columbia, because they own a record company as well.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Bash UCLA here

It sounds like UCLA is the anti-Portland.  Up here in Oregon, there's a real anti-Californian sentiment.

I also stand firmly with the minority.  I found this question relatively easy;  When working on it, I decided that the superlative embodied in the other AC was unwarranted.  The minority opinion's AC is simple set inclusion.

(Was that abstract enough for y'all?)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: The "Am I Being to Hard on Myself" Thread

I'm hating myself because I made a typical sloppy mistake on the 4th game:  misread a greater-than as a less-than.  I detected my error, but had to redo the game.  And then on the second game, I didn't have time to answer the last two.

So on an "EASY" LG portion, where most high scores seem to have done well, I have 5 that I guessed D.  Ouch!

On the other sections, I feel like I was fairly tested.  But still lots of wrongs due to the tough nature of the problem set.

And yep --- I'll probably have a 2.9 GPA that I'll need to balance out with a high LSAT.

Tough choices.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Cardozo, anyone?

I'm probably going to Cardozo in August.  I sent in my deposit (and think I'd be very happy there), but now the waitlist decisions are starting to trickle in.

I had no idea you were thinking of Cardozo.  It's really high up on my list, too.  I like the high reputation of the faculty, and the fact that it's in the Village.  I'm also missing being around other Jewish people (currently living in the Pacific NW)...

whoops... i deleted this post by accident! 

  I knew that I already had a score so even if I bombed June I could cancel and be fine.  I feel like I got between a 167-172 which is a significant improvement on my Feb score. 

This is great advice - some really solid reasoning:  If you keep your score now, then you'd be still free to take the September test.  And on *that* test, the decision to cancel will be based on solid data.

My take on this:

This is a good thing.  It'll make it easier for more schools to switch to looking only at the highest score, rather than averaging them.

ABA to Require Schools to Report Highest LSAT Scores from Multiple Tests, Rather Than Average Scores

At its June 8-11 meeting in Cleveland, the Council of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admission to the Bar voted to change its data collection procedures to require law schools in computing the 75th percentile, median, and 25th percentile LSAT scores of their entering classes to report the highest score of matriculants who took the test more than once. The ABA's prior rules had required schools to report the average LSAT score of students who took multiple tests.  The rule change follows similar action taken by the Law School Admission Council.  Although the change will encourage students to take the LSAT more than once, current LSAC rules limits applicants to three tests in any two-year period.


Sorry to be practical about it, but are you URM/black?

I'm just saying, NYU is great, but it probably not be an dependable option for you with a "GPA of 3.0 or so, and an LSAT of 168-ish", even if you are an URM.

Good point - I'm white, and so I'm not counting on being able to get into NYU.  My GPA is from 10 years ago, and I have good WE and publications in the meantime, but I'm not counting on getting into the top 14.
