Law School Admissions / Re: Top Law Schools with sub-standard LSATs

You seem like a great guy so I wish you the best Bearly. I'm a bit sick and tired of hearing how I'm a flame, troll and a liar all the time so as for the topic, I'm just gonna say @#!* it. You know my story anyway. Point is, it can be done and I hope you get into one of the schools you'd prefer :)

Am I the only one who sees the value and utility of a white box computer you build yourself to suit your specific needs? It's cheaper than the junk Dell and Mac sell, and doesn't come with all sorts of extra components and add-ons you'll never use. Plus, assuming you know what you're doing, it will be more reliable and look cooler. Also, you can stuff it with customized open source software (such as Linux and Open Office) that is more functional than the pre-installed crap and more stable.

Plus, you get the satisfaction of not feeling like a complete tool whenever you boot-up.

No you're not :)

Good to see Wachtell still pays 100% bonus as I thought. Had a lengthy discussion with an "insider" about this here on LSD last year. I like being right!

I'm pretty sure not every school requires you to sign a binding contract when you defer. And it's quite possible that others have been accepted already and simply don't post on LSD. No benefit of the doubt and all that?

NYU's deferral is binding.

Mine certainly wasn't. Not sure if that's the general or exception though.

I already answered the question... doesn't matter if the security guard is a thief, that's not what the question is about. Read four posts up :(

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Cooley - ?

(1) every law school must be non-profit in organization
Uh. No. Commie!

(2) every law school must be closely affiliated with an existing nationally-accredited university.
Even more no.

I'm really struggling to understand this law student obsession with macs. I know Apple has been good at marketing them as hip and trendy, but I really hope my fellow students look a bit deeper than that.

They are simply better computers. I've owned a wide range of laptops and desktops and Apple simply makes the best. More user-friendly, amazing customer support, built better... and the best part, they don't run Windows (at least not natively anyway). I don't care how hip or trendy they look, but if you've ever used one, and you've got an open mind, there's absolutely no reason you'd ever go back. Unless you wanted to play a ton of computer games...

Heh. Oh well, I don't even know how to answer that. I've used both macs and pcs for a good 15 years now, and this "mac is simply better" thing gets dumber and dumber every time I hear it. Yet, back to more relevant points. As a lawyer you will be using a PC, why wouldn't you use the same thing in law school?

OS X is definitely the best operating system I've ever used, and I think it is perfect for law students. There's a lot of things about my Mac that make me more productive and help save time.  Even as someone who considers himself very computer literate, the fact that things are generally easier and simpler on a Mac is very valuable now that I'm a law student and don't have as much time to screw around with my computer.

Riiight. Such as?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Are There Less Applicants This Year?

Hmm, I found June test to be pretty easy :)

I'm glad you asked this question before having a LSAT score, because it makes so much sense then.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Tier 1 or Tier 2 with money???

If you can't figure out the answer to this one yourself (hint, starts with F ends with ordham) you probably shouldn't go to law school to begin with.
