Choosing the Right Law School / Re: What is a "borderline" applicant?
« on: October 29, 2004, 11:43:51 AM »
I'd say borderline is if your lsat is below the median range.

That's awesome. i had a fraternity brother piss the bed of some chick he hooked up with at the dz house one night. with a little quick thought when he woke up the next morning, he quickly proceeded to blame the chick, proceeded to belittle her, and stormed out of the house.

Sarah and peters,  on my first app process i  was accepted to ole miss, lsu, and penn state. I was stuck in the desert and wasn't able to attend....and the only school that would defer me was penn state, so i reapplied. last year when i applied, i was accepted to west virginia (only took a week for acceptance, so that means at least last year we're in their definite admit range) i was also readmitted to ole miss and lsu, but they both waited until a week before the seat deposit, and didn't even mail me the letter, they called me and told me to put the seat deposit in the mail the next i think it may have been pity admits. I was also wait listed at memphis, i think they ultimately would have accepted me, as the year prior i was in the 46/47 range, but it was just a safety app and didn't pursue it.

If i was you i'd look at applying to some other schools. you have the exact same numbers i had when i applied TWO years ago, except i had military experience and a masters, i was rejected at...

almost all law schools are getting to be like that. when you figure lsac administered almost 150,000 lsats last year, and the median is a 150, there are 75,000 people above the median. with the bell curve, that means there's problaby at least 50,000 people who scored over 155 or 156. Then you factor in there are only about 180 schools, and the average school has about 200 seats...that's 36,000 total spots. Finally, even if the only people that apply to law school are those over 156 and they each only apply to an average of only three schools that's 150,000 applications or about four times as many apps as available seats...and that's a conservative assumption. It sure doesn't leave many slots open in the top two tiers with scores under 157 or so. 

Law School Admissions / Re: Is there anyone from the South

I'm from the northeast but i'm currently at LSU, most the schools i applied to were in the south, ole miss, uga, uf, and tennessee. I personally like living in the south more than the northeast and west coast.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: DC law schools - Hottest babes

It's not DC...but Umaryland's a subway ride down the road (not the law school)and that's a fun town to play in.

unless you're loaded, or have a significant scholarship you're going to easily rack up at least 125k in debt. but that's not unrecoverable since two years ago they claimed starting salaries of $125k/yr...but that really needs to be dissected. the school's reputation is based on their high tech patent and tax law programs. that's also where the money is. if you're going public service, you may never pay your loans off. besides the price, the school is really nice, and the area is really nice, but like any high population area there is a lot of ghetto in surrounding areas.

from my experience northeastern schools blow for endless waves of hot women...followed closely by northern cal. but one thing is for sure, i've never been disappointed at traditional "old south" schools.
