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.

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.

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!

The previous poster was trying to tell you you can access it through westlaw....no sense in purchasing a cd rom version. lexis/nexis has about 3 or 4 law dictionaries you an access also

Where should I go next fall? / Re: What are my chances?

unless your a URM, you'd be lucky to get into 1 or 2 of those schools with a 152. my buddy applied 3 years ago and had a 152....the only school that accepted him was penn state, and he applied to 23 schools. Penn State's median is now up to 156 or so...when we applied it was 147. Like another poster stated, raising your lsat is critical.

that lsat sure doesn't make marquette a safety school. If i was you, i'd be applying to a bunch of 3rd tiers.

I also got out of the military to go to law school. I posted my personal statement on my blog...which is attached to my LSD profile, if you want to give it a read. As can be expected lots of fluff, but it got me into school. It should be posted somewhere b/w july-september '04.

you are correct about schools not really caring about military experience...i know most of them didn't care when i applied 3 years ago. i don't miss the application process one bit.

I don't claim to be an expert on the navy, having served in the Air Force myself. However, common sense dictates that recruiters tell you what you want to hear. If you're in the navy you're not going to be in baghdad...or likely any combat zone. however, seamen spend a great deal of time on boats. Just because you're not "stationed" in another country doesn't mean you're not going to spend six months a year at sea on a ship...almost everyone does. You'd be shocked at all the trouble dillweed enlisted kids get themselves into...or better yet pilots who get drunk and max out their gov't credit cards in strip clubs. With 5000 people on a carrier and nothing to do for six months, people are always getting in trouble...consequently there needs to be an army of attorneys to deal with legal issues.

Like I always say...anyone with any sense will ask a recruiter what the jag retention rate is, and what the divorce rate is for officers for their branch. then cross check their reaction with facts. Clearly they paint a rosy picture of the military, so the correlative will have to be high retention/ low divorce rates....right????
