Law School Applications / OMG! NOT REJECTED AT PENN!!!
« on: December 26, 2006, 02:36:51 PM »
Well, not yet, anyway.

I was sure that slim white envelope from Penn was a rejection, but I opened it up (quite bravely, I might add) to find the words, "hold your file for further review" GLARING back at me. My brain quickly processed this, and I shouted out loud:


They seem to be asking me to send them further evidence. I'm not in school anymore though. What could I send them?

Where should I go next fall? / BIGLAW Job Prospects
« on: December 21, 2006, 10:48:59 PM »
How bad are the BIGLAW job prospects at the 25-50  or 31-50 schools?

Its becoming more and more apparent to me that the top-30 is probably an unlikely landing spot for someone of my credentials.


Studying for the LSAT / How do you study?
« on: December 21, 2006, 12:44:44 PM »
Ok. I've taken the LSAT before, gotten a 165 and realized that it isn't good enough to make Adcomms forget about my GPA. So I'm taking it again in Feb. Thing is, last time I took the class. Now I plan not to, but without the structure, I am not really sure what I should be doing.

I'm not particularly weak in any section, I just need to add a couple more correct answers overall. I want to just take practice tests, but it doesn't seem to be useful, because I can't really  time myself the same and my house is noisy and distracting...

What do you guys do to study?  How often? What's your plan?

(sorry for probably duplicating this)

Law School Applications / O Canada....
« on: December 20, 2006, 12:19:32 PM »
I noticed that there were quite a few people who are applying to both US and Canadian Law Schools. I wasn't aware that US and Canadian Law Degrees were interchangeable as far as admission to the bar is concerned...

What do those people know that I don't?

Law School Applications / Cornell Rejections
« on: December 18, 2006, 12:21:29 PM »
Well, I got the ding letter from Cornell today. Thin white envelope, postmarked on friday. The letter was brief, it mentioned the normal "regrettably we can't..." stuff and had a paragraph about transferring (explained the process, no guarantees or anything).

Lets commiserate.. who else?

General Off-Topic Board / Quack or No Quack?
« on: December 14, 2006, 01:25:08 AM »
My friend who is in chiropractic school is mad at me for calling him a quack. However, he is claiming that by cracking my back (or "adjusting my spine" -- whatever fancy terms he's planning to use), he can prevent my liver from deteriorating, and cure all sorts of un-back-related diseases...

Sure sounds quackish to me. Your thoughts? Am I justified?

Law School Applications / "You've got Mail!"
« on: December 12, 2006, 01:15:28 PM »
Everytime I get an Email, I have a heart attack. Anyone else experiencing this?

Law School Applications / Emory? Cardozo?
« on: December 11, 2006, 06:57:52 PM »
I'm looking for schools to apply to with good career prospects. Preferably mid-tier 1 to mid-tier 2 in quality, although I'd be fine with a lower-ranked school if it had good NY/Philly career prospects.

In particular, I'm considering Emory and Cardozo. What's the word on those schools? Any current students at either lurking around?
