Villanova / *******Class of 2014!!!! Come forth!!!**********
« on: May 28, 2011, 02:16:13 AM »
Hi all! Just thought I'd start the thread for those accepted and planning to attend Villanova Law in the Fall of 2011! I just recently got accepted and am 99% sure I'll be there in the Fall. Any undergrads or current 1L+ students have the scoop on best residential options for 1Ls? I'm probably looking for small apartment/house to share with a couple of roommates. Feel free to share any other ideas/questions/comments!

Stetson / Residential Options
« on: May 21, 2011, 04:25:34 AM »
I was wondering if any current 1L+ students or graduates could fill me in on the best options as far as housing for a prospective student. I've briefly looked over the school's website and I see that they have single dorms if people would prefer but I'm not so sure I feel like going back into the dorm setting after living in an apartment for my last 2 years of undergrad unless the $ was significantly cheaper to live in a dorm than off campus housing/apartment some where. I know the best people to ask are the students who can provide the best and nicest most affordable locations that they wished they lived their first year if only they knew about it then?

Any recommendations for a 25yr old single male. I prefer to be close enough to walk to campus or at least a short drive away. I don't have any children or pets and don't smoke. Ideally I'd like an affordable single apartment but if anyone has had a great experience sharing an apartment/house with a few other law students where did you live? I don't mind living with other people but I tend to be a little more introverted than most and don't mind staying in on a Friday and Saturday nights. Then again I don't mind going out as long as it's not every Friday/Saturday of the month. Especially when it comes to studies I'm focused 100% Monday through Friday.  Sunday for me is about getting ready for the week ahead and back into study mode although I'm sure I'll be reviewing/reading/studying most of the time on Saturdays as well. I'm going to law school to get good grades, period. I studied and worked my ass off a lot more than most of my friends did in undergrad and although they have great memories of the frat and party life I have a great transcript with excellent grades to always submit with a resume when I needed to and that definitely helps. And I'm glad I never wasted the $ spent for a 4 year degree. I plan on doing the same in law school. So that being said any students or graduates that can help? It's greatly appreciated!

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Howard University Question
« on: March 31, 2007, 03:07:35 PM »
I was just looking through the 2008 USNEWS rankings and for Howard University although the midrange GPA was 2.95-3.5 and LSAT is 148-154 they have a suprisingly high midrange salary for the private sector ($73-$125k).  I know Howard is in D.C. but being a 3rd tier school how are the top firms not picking up students from tier 1 and even tier 2 schools first before Howard? Is there something I'm missing about this school? and Seems like an excellent place to go if you have just OK gpa and lsat with a very profitable return in the private sector.

Just for fun I wanted to start a thread and get a take on what everyone thinks is the most surprising change in a school's ranking, gain or loss!? Which ones stand out to you?

Please list your top 3 and only 3, and feel free to give your reaction and if you want your personal opinion of why you think the change occurred. Thanks!

Where should I go next fall? / Cornell vs Fordham placement
« on: February 26, 2007, 09:39:40 PM »
Does anyone have a good grasp on how well Cornell places? I mean being Ivy I'm sure it has a pretty decent national rep but as far as placement in BIGLAW in NYC I hear so much about Fordham but not much about Cornell. Any takers?

Studying for the LSAT / Powerscore logic games bible vs setup
« on: February 25, 2007, 01:28:29 PM »
Hey I just wanted to see if anyone could tell me about their experience with powerscore's logic games bible and logic games setup books. I have bough the logical reasoning bible and found it to be the best LSAT preperation tool thus far. I bought the logic games bible but have not looked through it and was wondering what the differences are between the setup guide and the bible??? Would you recommend getting both or just one and if both which would you read through first? Any help would be appreciated!

Studying for the LSAT / Are law school fairs really worth it???
« on: October 22, 2006, 06:29:09 PM »
Tomorrow there is a large law school fair in Philadelphia for those who live in the area. I was just wondering if it's really worth it to attend these things. I've never been to one but I have the feeling at the end of the day I'd just end up with a bunch of brochures and stuff from various law schools. Seeing as getting into law school is a numbers game with GPA and LSAT score is it really worth going to one of these things and getting information that probably could just as easily be obtained from online? Anyone who has gone to a law school fair did you find it helpful and if so in what ways? I'm just trying to get a good feel for this thing because it's in the middle of the day and I'm pretty busy as is already and I'm tryin to figure out if they are worth attending???  I dont feel it could really help with the admissions process and make it any easier getting into a certain school. Comments anyone?

Studying for the LSAT / Should I take the February or June 2007 LSAT???
« on: October 17, 2006, 10:38:22 AM »
Since I know I'm definitely not applying to schools until next Fall I was planning on taking the February LSAT, but I've heard mixed comments/opinons about the different LSATS and that the February may be unique compared to the rest. Should I just use the extra few months to keep studying or depending on my practice test scores relative to my goal decide when to take it? Does anyone know how the February LSAT usually is compared to the June??? Thanks!
