I got the 3-year on site.  Figure that way I can feel good about buying a pretty kickass laptop and knowing it'll be working when I finish law school.

I'm a nontrad, significant income up to here, it says my EFC is like 37000.  Does that mean I won't get any subsidized loans?  Thats more than the tuition costs.

I was hoping to just borrow whatever I could thats subsidized and then lump pay it back right when I graduate, since I wouldn't be paying interest.

Do you think LEEWS is a good guide?

Did you read Law School Confidential?  If so, how do you regard their study methods in light of your experience?

I've got about a month left at work.  My guys have known since last June though when I first started talking about it.  Then again, I work at a startup and I'm a co-founder/co-owner.  Lets see them fire me.  :)

SMU uses SofTest.  And no, I don't intend to cheat on any exams.

It's easy to say you see all these flaws in something, and that it provides no security, while providing no evidence this is so.

I could point you to specific point-by-point instructions on how to bypass the security in any of the 3 major exam software programs.

Please do, not that I'd use it but I'd be interested.

With VirtualPC for Windows running, someone could easily circumvent any controls put in place by exam software.  Assuming that exam software prevents the kind of cheating you are proposing is naieve.

The exam software they use at SMU for example reboots the system out of windows.. and it won't work under VirtualPC (at least, it says it won't) or any other emulation software.  How exactly they pull that off I'm not sure, but it specifically says it won't work.

Try again?

If you think exam software is going to stop someone who would be willing to risk their education by doing what you described, you might be going into the wrong field.

I submit that there is no practical way to communicate the pages and pages of data you'd need to communicate in order to have that type of outside assistance on an exam.  I'm open to proposals, however.
