General Board / Re: What Tier do I belong in?
« on: September 08, 2004, 10:35:42 PM »
With those numbers you're looking at the 3rd tier. 3 or 4 years ago you could easily get into mid 2nd tier schools with a 155 and a 3.4....not anymore. I know people with better numbers than that who were rejected from 3rd tier schools last year.

General Board / Re: LSAT / Admissions question
« on: August 25, 2004, 10:57:48 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.

General Board / How many people call it quits after day 1???
« on: August 06, 2004, 06:26:11 PM »
as I waste my final days away pondering where i can get some badly needed furniture cheap, the thought came into my 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.

General Board / Re: should I use a rolling bag?

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.

General Board / 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. 

General Board / Re: Law school admission with criminal record
« on: August 05, 2004, 07:58:25 PM »
From what I understand, it's not getting in that's the'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.

General Board / 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.

Louisiana state / Re: LSU 1L

that's cool. where are you living? where are you coming from? i'm going to be out of the area until aug 1st, but we should arrange a lsu 1L happy hour. have you found any good bars around campus yet? it seems like there's a couple of places down by chimes. cheers.

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