I'll be a 1L so i can't say, but try ratemyprofessors.com I used it for undergrad and was pretty accurate.

I agree with CSU avoid Euclid, chester is best, esp with traffic flow and the lights are decent.

I too have been getting ready a little bit. Basically whenever I see an awesome sale on stuff I need I am picking it up. I'm thinking lsders should head to Becky's (it's a bar near the law school) during orientation week.

Cleveland State / Re: Cleveland-Marashall '10

What prospects do C-M give for out of state students wanting to settle down in other states. I am from NYC and would like to settle down in NYC after graduation. I am still contemplating whether to attend C-M. I dont have too many options on the table.

A large majority practice in the great lakes region, so as far as practicing in nyc, the odds are stacked against you. I recall from an old us news report that over 85% stay in the area. Not saying it's impossible, but you'll have to perform really well at csu to stand out from someone from fordham or other nyc schools.

I'll be there. I live on the east side, with my family. I finished my undergrad at csu, let me know if anyone has any Cleveland or CSU questions.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Diabetes and law school
« on: June 08, 2007, 10:08:20 AM »
Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I don't have diabetes but it runs in my family. I also know a mba student with diabetes. Diabetes is a manageable disease. Eat well, exercise, monitor your levels, etc. and for the most part you'll be fine. It's when you don't take care of yourself (like being overweight, unhealthy sugar levels) where you can cause other health problems.

As far as stress is concerned, I'd imagine structuring your day to include an appropriate time for studying, exercise, eating well, and rest. If you have a schedule planned, it'll be easier to stick to it. I'm going to get a locker and leave things like nutrigrain bars, juice boxes, and non-perishables. Check the size of the locker and get a cooler. Buy a few reuseable ice packs and take one everyday to school. I'd say it'll keep you lunch cool but if you're on campus for dinner have soup or snacks to hold you over til you get home.  I'm bringing soup and stuff too to microwave and a bunch of bananas to have a banana a day. This will help eat better as well as save money on fast food.  Hope this helps.

Law School Applications / Re: Apply now or next Fall?
« on: December 23, 2006, 10:01:37 AM »
I'd suggest looking at lawschoolnumbers.com or lsn as most call it here. Look at last year's cycle for the schools you're considering and see how many were accepted if applying in Jan.

Dig around the school's website. Did their bar passage rates go up compared to last year? Did they build/renovate a building recently? If you can make those good things apply to you do it. Like if the school is close to home you can stay at home to focus on studies or affordable tuition is a concern since you're the first to go to grad school or something.

Personal Statement / Re: Montauk essay option
« on: November 03, 2006, 12:31:42 PM »
It's a group legal ins. company. I'd rather not focus on the company itself, but my skills. I am thinking about mentioning a specific person, their predicament, and how I assisted that person.
