There seems to be a lot of complaints, but here and elsewhere online about the ABA in terms of high costs of law schools, the high number of schools vs job opportunities, and how many law schools twist their employment rates for graduates.   I'm just wondering do you all think it may be time for the government to start taking a more direct role in regulating the legal profession? It seems like the ABA has proven that they are either too incompetent or too unwilling to address a lot of the complaints being levied against them.

Law School Applications / Applying before graduation?
« on: October 22, 2012, 05:11:48 PM »
I met with the admissions director at UT law today and she told me that since I'm graduating in fall of  2013 I should start applying to schools around November of that year for the fall class of 2014. I'm wondering, won't applying early hurt my chances for aid and acceptance?  I would assume most schools wouldn't really look at an application from someone who hasn't officially graduated yet, but maybe I'm wrong.  Does anyone know how this works? Dang it. Sorry for the double post. My internet messed up and I had to refresh the page.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Logic Game help?
« on: October 22, 2012, 01:45:32 AM »
I got a perfect score on the logic games section on the actual test.  I recommend Powerscore Logic Games Bible and The Ultimate Setups Guide.  I used those and Nova's Master the LSAT and Kaplan's LSAT 180.  Also, I did dozens of old LSAT's published by the makers of the test, LSAC.
I've just ordered the Logical Reasoning Bible and the Logic Games Bible.  I do have one question about the Logic Games Bible, though.  I have heard some people say it is out of date because the games have changed since the book came out, but do you think the concepts are still useful?

Where should I go next fall? / How important is location?
« on: October 20, 2012, 02:02:34 PM »
I live in Knoxville, TN so I have always thought I'd end up at UTK, Vanderbilt (If I do great on the LSAT) or maybe Memphis.  However, I want to live and practice in New York City.  Of course going to UTK would be much cheaper both in terms of tuition and living costs since I can stay at home during my time at law school.  I'm just wondering if location of your law school is such a big factor that it would be worth trying to get into a school in or around New York?  Will going to a school in or around New York City make it so much easier to get a job that it would be worth taking loans to cover the extra cost?  If anyone has been in a similar situation or just has some general advice that would be great.  Thanks in advance.

Studying for the LSAT / Logic Game help?
« on: October 18, 2012, 10:57:02 PM »
I was just wondering if anyone knew of any resources, print or digital, to help with the logic games section.  This is really my only weak spot in my studies.  I'm doing good and making steady progress in every other area, but these bloody games make me want to throw the book across the room half the time.

Law School Applications / Odds with a low GPA, but high LSAT score.
« on: October 18, 2012, 10:10:00 PM »
Hey, everyone.  I'm in my junior year with a current GPA of 3.29, by the time I graduate I should be somewhere around 3.46 or so.  I know it's a pretty low GPA. I haven't taken the LSAT yet, but I am studying a lot and I feel fairly confident that I should be able to pull somewhere in the 160s or maybe higher.  I'm just wondering are those numbers good enough to get me into a decent school? I don't expect Harvard or Yale, I'm mostly looking at State schools in my area.  Anyway I'm sorry if this question has been asked a thousand times, I'm just kind of worried.  I don't know if it makes any difference, but my major is Journalism which I've heard might give me a small boost in the considerations.
