Where should I go next fall? / which is preppy?
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:31:56 AM »
So I went to a preppy private school for High School, a liberal arts hippy school in NorCal for BA, a leftist commuter school in SoCal for MA, and I want to go to a preppy law school and return to my educational roots. It would be nice to share interests with classmates like sailing, gin and tonics, and topsiders. Also I would like to be around those kinds of girls because I would hope to get my J.D. and my MRS. I am not talking about Abercrombie Preppy which is the anti-Christ/ false-god of prep-dom either. I am not stupid and would not pick a school ranked Tier 4 over #65, but maybe I would pick an 87 over a 65. I just want to know what the culture is like at these schools, because I FEEL that it is important to ME. It is hard being a conservative preppy at some schools, and I would like to be around people similar to myself for once (outside of yachting).

Anyway, here is my list of schools by US News rank, please reorder them in terms of preppiness:

Hastings
Loyola
San Diego
Pepperdine
Santa Clara
San Francisco
McGeorge
Southwestern
Chapman
Whittier
La Verne (I hope I don't do this poorly on LSAT)

I also like these out of state schools but probably won't attend

Washington & Lee
William & Mary
George Mason
American
Seton Hall
Rutgers-Newark
Rutgers-Camden

also if you just want to throw in other random schools that are preppy that you know of- feel free.

thanks and if you are just going to insult me because I am preppy/ conservative save us both the trouble.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT HELP NOW! Should I......
« on: July 05, 2006, 11:42:16 PM »
I am relatively poor at this point in my life. I have yet to study for the LSAT. I am going to take the LSAT this fall. I am going to get tutoring, but am leaving for Army active duty for the next 17 days, and there is no way I can get any materials from them soon enough. Should I not worry about studying the next two weeks. OR should I get a book from Barnes and Nobles to hold me over- get started; even though this entails spending more money. I don't mind spending the money if it is worth it, but not if it will be wasting it.

So I am applying to law schools this fall, and have been checking into Law School/ Legal Profession for just over a year, as I did not want to make the mistake I did when rushing into GradSchool. I would like to practice in California. I am not totally into rankings, but the world seems to be totally into rankings. Do you guys think it would be better to attend:

Pepperdine (87), Santa Clara (87), U San Fran (93)= Cal Schools
                 vs.
Seton Hall (70) or Rutgers-Camden (65) = Out-O-State


Loyola (65) = Cal School
           vs.
Villanova (60) or American U. (43) = Out-O-State


Thanks- I am trying to whittle down my list of schools to apply to.
