General Off-Topic Board / *no charge* applications
« on: November 27, 2006, 08:37:12 AM »
I'm putting this i Off-topic because it's probably such a retarded question I dont want a lot of people to read it...

Some of the schools I have applied to has turned out to be "no charge" by the time I completed it, and I haven't applied for fee waivers or anything, so is it common for schools to have no charge applications, and if so, is there any way to find out which schools do this?

Cheers ;)

Choosing the Right Law School / University of Iowa?

I'm noticing Iowa has pretty damn low numbers for its rank (22?), does this reflect a school on the decline, or is it just generally not popular because of its less than ideal location? Also, is it a school that would be limited in an employment situation, at least to its region? I wouldn't mind 3 years in Iowa, but I sure as hell dont want a life there, no offense ;)

It's by far the highest ranking I would have any reasonable chance of getting into, so seems like they might be worth 50-60 bucks.

General Off-Topic Board / Dean's List & Honor Societies

What precisely are these things, and could I get a quick explanation of how they work, how you achieve it, and what benefits you would reap from it?

Neither of these terms are found in Norwegian universities at least, not sure if they are in other European countries.

Site Suggestions and Announcements / Popups and downloads

I do appreciate ads helping to pay the bills and all, but is there any chance you could weed out the advertisements that tries to force my computer into downloading executable files and random popups and *&^%?

Studying for the LSAT / Sept '06 LSAT

Enough self-pity now;)

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Rutgers Newark v. Seton Hall
« on: November 16, 2006, 08:46:07 PM »
Hope I'm not annoying people yet, another two schools I'm weighing against each other. In terms of admission requirements they are fairly equal, same with the number of visiting firms on NALP. Also being almost neighbors, is there anything clearly setting these two schools apart?

Choosing the Right Law School / Florida Int.
« on: November 16, 2006, 07:08:23 PM »
Any opinions or experiences from FIU here? As they're still unranked, it is rather hard to judge them. Their LSAT/GPA requirements seems to put them in the category somewhere between Seton Hall and NYLS, but being as new as they are I suppose they have the potential to both climb and fall when they start getting ranked... Would it be a decent "safety" choice school?

Law School Admissions / Some advice for international applicant
« on: November 15, 2006, 09:27:16 AM »
Hey, my first post and I figured I'd start by asking a few questions since it seems there are well qualified people on these boards. I have submitted my law school applications today, and my school list is something like; Columbia (ED), NYU, Fordham, Rutger's Newark, St. John's and New York Law School.

The questions are two-fold, assuming I don't get any of my top 3's, how do you guys rate Rutger's, St. John's and NYLS compared to eachother? I do not know enough about these to really make a decision, I simply selected them as safetly choices in the NYC area.

Second question is, my LSAT score is a bit short for my top 3 choices, but I have extensive background that might help. The real question however is, do you believe / know / suspect that law schools give any wiggle room in LSAT scores to English foreign speakers? I heard some rumors that minority students gets an "8 point bonus" to their LSAT score, logically I would assume this applies to foreign speakers as well?

Anyhow, hoping someone can give me a head ups, cheers :)
