Non-Traditional Students / Re: LSC -- Any books for NT students?
« on: June 03, 2004, 08:39:48 PM »
I read the first 100 pages of PLS II and stopped.  Too negative and self-righteous.


PLS II is a book about why we need to read PLS II.

I read "The Complete Law School Companion: How to Excel at America's Most Demanding Post Graduate Curriculum" by Jeff Deaver and thought it was better than Law School Confidential and PLS II.  Deaver went to Fordham Law PT as a Non Traditional while working as a journalist.  This book is not solely for the part time adult student, but was written by one - so he has some understanding for what he calls the "swing shift."

Studying for the LSAT / Re: visited test center yesterday

Does anyone know if you can choose your testing center?
I'm taking the October LSAT and I want to see if I can scout out the best location in my area.


You can take the LSAT anywhere it is administered.  I could have taken mine at a local NJ school near where I live, but I made the trip into the city to Fordham University because I wanted to be in familiar surroundings.

I recently had a conversation with one of the deans at Fordham University and she said that Fordham Law goes out of its way to admit students from outside NYC, so coming from Fordham undergrad is definitely not an advantage.  This is their way of building an image as a national school rather than a local NY school.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: tier three here I come!
« on: May 31, 2004, 08:07:10 PM »
I'm off to NYLS!

If I finish 1L real strong, I may consider transferring.  Getting concerned about negative opinions.

Hey guys...What are your stats if you dont mind me asking  LSAT/GPA.
NYLS is on my list.


My stats:  GPA: 3.95, LSAT: 154, 10+ years WE
Am I reading correctly?  17 practice LSATs!! I admire your perserverance.  Maybe if I had practiced as much as you, my LSAT score would be a different story.  Good luck.

Thanks, Don for the link. I plan to join.  Good luck at NYLS!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / NY Bar Admission Requirements
« on: May 26, 2004, 06:41:47 PM »
I will be attending NYLS in the fall.  I remember in my application there were instructions to contact the bar admission agency in the jurisdiction where I plan to practice to see if there is a requirement to register upon entrance to law school.  Is anyone familiar with such a requirement in New York state?
