5 OCI, 1 callback so far (it's been less than a week).
I know as a 1L your not supposed to work. However, before applying to law school I found out my gf is knocked up. I currently work as a night club dj on fridays & sats, but will need a lil more cash to handle my biz. Any recommendations for decent paying jobs I can do in the early afternoons after classes (non-retail)?
I also suspect that Florida and Florida State both show loyalty to their alumni during admissions, but that's not a big deal.
I was never a huge fan of Oyez... not that many details. I just looked up Roe v. Wade and it has like 9 lines of info. Wiki on the other hand has great background as well as the decision of the court with summaries of the sections plus the dissent and then goes on to give overviews of subsequent cases and the controversy.
To each their own.
You will have access to a free digital copy from West once you start school. Don't buy one.
If you start school and find yourself using the West copy often, buy the pocket version.
If you must choose between them, I would go to Widener if you plan to look for work in NY/PA. More alums in the area, easier to network for jobs in a location when you are already in a location.
Still, I would highly recommend retaking the LSAT and trying to get into either Temple or one of the Rutgers schools. Go to the school you can get in-state tuition at.
Did I say I was deciding based on the name? no. It's a simple question.
