Law School Applications / Re: Am I Screwed?!

I took the October LSAT and spent 2 weeks recovering from it.  I think I spent another 2-3 weeks writing up and editing my PS.  I believe all my applications were sent out a week or so before Thanksgiving and I was still apparently very early in the game.  Some schools don't even look at applications until January or so.  I believe Boston University sent me a postcard saying that they don't even look at any applications until January 1st or something (correct me if i'm wrong).  As of now, just concern yourself with the LSAT, take a week or so just to relax and just brainstorm for some ideas, and then start writing.  While you're doing that, print out those LOR forms and get your professors to fill those out because some take up to a month to mail those darn things in. 

Long story short, I didn't start my PS until 2 weeks after the LSAT and I still sent in all my apps relatively early.  Don't worry about it chief :)

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: ST JOHNS

SJU was actually one of the schools I was considering this summer.  SJU is actually extremely good with giving out scholarship money so if you're hesitant to take out massive loans, SJU might be a great choice for you if you have the right numbers.  I have a few 2L friends there and apparently they really like it there.

Law School Applications / Re: Let's talk rank...really want opinions

According to what i've heard from friends in your situation, attending a T3 law school in New York can become extremely problematic.  I had a few friends that are currently 3Ls in New York Law School (no not NYU), Touro, and Hofstra and they all seemed to complain that it was extremely difficult for them to find the type of employment that was necessary for them to pay off their loans.  As was said earlier, you're competing with a whole lot of students in higher ranked schools.  If you're planning to take out massive loans to pay off your law school debt, attending a T3 school might ultimately hurt you. 

That said, it is definitely better to attend a NY law school if you're definitely planning to practice law in NY.  Whatever happens, I wish you the best of luck!  And if you're somehow able to become extremely successful and open up your own firm in NY, please hire me :)

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Any reviews of W&L or Tulane?

I'm also a 1L at W&L and I am really enjoying it here.  All the students i've met have been extremely friendly and down-to-earth, the professors are excellent, the honor system really seems to work here, and the small class sizes are great. 
If i'm not mistaken, there are roughly 120ish 1L's and the small size allows for lots of individual attention.  I have 3 advisors, all my professors knew me by name within the first 2 weeks, some dude that works at the bookstore somehow knows me by first name (and i swear i never introduced myself to the guy), and all the professors have an open-door policy where you can go in at any time to discuss the material. 

Feel free to PM me or something if you have any further questions.

Good luck on your memo alamo.  mine was due tuesday and I shed many many tears over it... a little piece of me died inside....
