I liked Law School Confidential and I'm hafway through Getting to Maybe and it seems good.  I'm with Jeff on PSII (we've discussed this on another thread).  I liked The Complete Law School Companion by Jeff Deaver.  It has been mentioned that the book was written over 10 years ago, but if you overlook the introduction's references to the early 90's and get to his study and outline methods, I think the book still stands up and it's a quick easy read.

I think there are a lot of lawyers out there that feel they are part of an elite old boys club and they want to keep it that way.

Tenacity is a really good thing!  :)

My Mom is very happy, proud, can't wait to brag to her friends.

My husband could not be more supportive, encouraging, proud.  No way I could do this without his support.

My friends are mixed.  They acted happy when I told them, but some are acting strange, defensive.  One went into a long dissertation about how she could have gotten into law school, too, but blah, blah.  Strange. Reminded me of when I graduated Summa Cum Laude.  Friends can be strange creatures sometimes.

Lawyers that I know - all negative.  One keeps pleading with me to reconsider everytime I saw him.  I finally told him how sorry I was that he was so unhappy with what he was doing.  He wanted me to come into his office and meet with a few of his associates to talk about it - I think he was planning some kind of intervention.  I said no thanks.  It's gotten to the point that when I run into lawyers (and lately I've run into quite a few) I don't even mention my LS plans.  I don't want to hear it.

I think it was three times.  He failed twice.

The salesman who sold me my car.  I think his name was Jay. Total loser.

Definitely D.  If the library ONLY purchases paperbacks, how can library users be best served given that the library would not purchase any hardcover reference books. 

I'll admit, I have some doubts.  Maybe trepidation is a better word.  But, in the words of Mark Twain, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do."

I was faced with a decision between Seton Hall PT or NYLS FT, and I went with NYLS because I want to practice in NY.  Even though SH is 2T and NYLS is 3T, I think it is limiting to go to a LS in the suburbs that has a very local reputation, unless that is where you want to practice.  I have roots in Long Island but currently live in NJ, and it seems to me that people (not in the field of law necessarily) in NJ don't know where Hofstra is and people on Long Island don't know where Seton Hall is. This impression was a main reason for my decision.
