Current Law Students / Re: LSAT / Admissions question
« on: August 25, 2004, 08:57:48 PM »
I wouldn't worry so much about the GPA, a crappy GPA and awesome LSAT usually equals awesome law school. as for the 146...that's a whole different story. I started with a 147, and never got it up 15 points even with a kaplan course. If you don't start consistently hitting 157+ on practice exams you're probably going to get stuck in a 3rd or 4th tier school.

Current Law Students / How many people call it quits after day 1???
« on: August 06, 2004, 04:26:11 PM »
as I waste my final days away pondering where i can get some badly needed furniture cheap, the thought came into my mind...how many people call it quits after day 1? I thought back to college and remember people who'd move all their crap into a dorm, and then you'd see them moving it all out a week later because they withdrew from school...and they'd always be willing to sell their stuff cheap instead of packing it up again. but i thought it would be interesting to hear others' opionions.

Current Law Students / Re: should I use a rolling bag?
« on: August 05, 2004, 06:07:00 PM »
maybe my school is different than everybody else's, but why on earth would one need a roller bag. don't you get a locker? and aren't all your classes in the same building? it's kind of like high school all over again. i think a backpack would be more than sufficient. besides, i think it would be more of a hassle to cart a roller bag up and down stairs if your classes are on different floors.

Current Law Students / Re: Laptop Questions: What Should I Get???

I ordered a dell 9100...but watch out for the arrival time. apparently the earliest mine is going to ship is aug 19th...looks like i'm going old school pen and paper for a couple weeks. maybe i'll bring a feather fountain pen and a jar of ink to class to be humorous.

Current Law Students / Re: Law school admission with criminal record
« on: August 05, 2004, 05:58:25 PM »
From what I understand, it's not getting in that's the problem...it's being admitted to the bar when you're finished. i think the schools' questionaires are just trying to help some poor bastard save three years of his life. either way, i'm sure there are numerous people with drug possession convictions in law school.

Current Law Students / Re: What is everyone spending?

it all comes entirely down to where you go. some schools in-state are 7k, and some privates are 30k in expensive cities. law school is actually going to cost me less than my undgrad did....and offers better earning potential upon completion than my ba in history did. as for yearly cash flow. from what i'm finding out, it's pretty much endless if you have good credit. my tuition is only 12k/year, and i was offered 32k in loans, which is obviously overkill. you're guaranteed at least 18.5k in staffords alone.

I wouldn't do it. i just separated from the air force. i was going to cross over into the reserves, but deployments right now are ridiculous. if you don't mind that you'll probably have to miss at least one semester eventually because you're living in a tent in iraq then go for it....otherwise think long and hard.

another thing to think about: the two weeks you have to do each year might really mess up your internships.

finally....do not enlist if you already have a degree. go to officer training school and become one.

Current Law Students / Re: Tape Recorder In Class

personally, i'm getting a digital recorder. i'm going to record all my classes and just download the lectures to my computer. come finals time if i feel like there's a hole in my notes i'm going to go back and listen to the recordings.

Current Law Students / Re: Seeking any kind of comfort!

dude, do you worry that a tornado might destroy your state??? or that a militia group is going to take over the government??? if not you'll be fine as a 1L, if so....seek counseling, and you'll still be fine. my advice is drink a beer and let the pieces fall into place.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Resources for finding law jobs
« on: November 07, 2006, 04:30:15 PM »
your best best is eattorney.com or lawcrossing.com. You'll most likely receive a password after you start school, but would have to pay the fees prior.

Another option is going to Arizona's website. They have an extensive list of all government positions available.

...I wouldn't get your hopes up though. Typically the only thing law firms want a pre-law student for is answering phones or as a courier...and the pay will blow!
