General Off-Topic Board / Re: Who is the GREATEST RAPPER of ALL TIME?

This question doesn't even need to be asked.  2pac.

Zioni is dope too, but that is some underground *&^%.

I agree with everyone here.  PS cartoon is a bad idea.  LS is about writing, not drawing.  Have a blue and start working on your statement.  You will want to do it sometime soon so you can have family/friends take a look at it and provide you feedback.

Yes, sooner the better.  I don't know about Austin/Houston per se, but the sooner the better to insure you get a close testing center.

I am not planning to apply there, but I thought some of you might be interested.,1713,BDC_2448_3041190,00.html

Screen shot of LSAC application and letter of acceptance would work as proof.  Just black out your info.

Good luck if this is not BS.

I would suggest taking it at college of Alameda.  I am taking it there in October.  I have not been there, but I suspect that it is better then a "ballroom" and may be less hectic then trying to take it in berkeley.  I plan to go take a look at the site and take a few tests there in the near future.  I will let you know how it is when I go.

Oakland is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.  It just depends on the neighborhood.  I was born and raised in Oakland and I have never been mugged or shot at or anything like that (I am knocking on wood as I am writing this statement).  Every city has it's bad spots, Oakland just has some really large bad spots.

Why do you want to go to Law School?  Why does being a Lawyer interest you?  Law school is not something that should be taken lightly... just going to go or going because your father is a lawyer are not good reasons to attend law school.

I agree with most people who posted.  My suggestion is focus on your studies, get a good GPA in whatever field interests you, get to know your professors, but above all, enjoy yourself in school.  Make sure you accomplish what you need to, but be sure to do other things you aspire to do... go abroad for a semester, take some recreational courses, party, etc.  Don't visit this board and start stressing until the end of 2nd or beginning of 3rd year.

Law School Admissions / Re: Poli Sci/Econ double-major

Okay, I will take a shot at this.

I am a recent Grad (within the last 3 years) with a double major in history and econ., minor in pol. sci.  LSAC does not focus that closely on your GPA for your major or minor, they focus more on your overall GPA.  Switching your minor will not impact this.  

I would recommend that you finish up your econ major and double major.  This may slightly be beneficial for Law School (I think there are some threads on this, see,515.0.html), but it will definately be valuable if you are interested in public policy/leg. practic/gov't relations.  Additionally, it is more 'pratical' then Pol. Sci. and may help you get a job out of college.  It is only one more semester/quarter, so just do it unless there are money/other issues.  

I would recommend that you do the internship and tutor, any resume boosters are a good thing for law school regardless of whether they are related to law or not.  

One suggestion, if you are interested in Public policy/legislative practice/government relations you should look into Masters and PhD programs.  You 'could' focus on this at law school, but it would be cheaper (and perhaps more interesting to you) to go to grad school for this.  Normally, schools pay you to be in grad school (TA, etc.), law schools don't.  The issue for public policy/gov't relations with most Law school programs is they focus on the law, not government/public policy so much (unless you go to georgetown or somewhere like that).  Just a thought.  Anyone else have comments on this?  

Hope this helps.

Do well in October and no worries.  A few stories to supplement Ruskiegirl.

(1)  I have a friend who had good grades, but bombed the first LSAT she took.  Then she took it a second time and got 99%.  She is going to Northwestern.  I think she might have taken testmasters before the second time. 

(2)  I have another friend who went to Syracuse (T3), kicked ass L1 and then moved on to Early admission at Georgetown.  It helped that he got in with his profs too.

Think positively and I wish you the best.  Ruskiegirl, hope to join you there 2005... need to ace my LSAT though.
