Texas Tech / Know of an apt that has a 1-bedroom unit?
« on: August 09, 2009, 01:07:00 PM »
I have never been to Lubbock in my life.  Classes begin on Aug 24th.  Need to know find a studio or 1-bedroom apartment soon.  Know of an affordable place near the law school?  My price range is $0 - $500 per month. 

It doesn't have to be right across the street from the school...if it's not walkable...all I need is an accessible bus route to get to school.  I would appreciate all the advice/info!  Thanks!

Texas Tech / Transferring to Texas Tech
« on: July 28, 2009, 05:06:25 AM »
Hello, I'm currently finsihing up my first year at a T4 law school.  Very happy to get a transfer acceptance letter from Tech.  I am not from Texas so can anyone here be kind enough to tell me about Texas Tech School of Law and what advantages I will have as a law student and as a law graduate (i.e. OCI, job prospects, etc.)?

Is the law campus in or next to the undergraduate campus?  Also, how are the apartment rent prices around the law campus?

Thank you!!!

Transferring / Texas Tech
« on: July 28, 2009, 05:00:32 AM »
I'm currently finsihing up my first year at a T4 law school.  Just got my first transfer acceptance letter.  Need to know if Texas Tech is a good law school.  It is currently ranked in Tier 3 but after being on ther website, it seems like they should be at least T50-100.  Bar passage rates are always near the top (90%) and their advocacy teams seem to be either champs or runner-ups.  It boggles my mind how Texas Tech can be ABA approved since 1969 but can't seem to crack the top-100.

Anyone have helpful information to share about Texas Tech (i.e. reputation, social life, professors, job prospects, OCIs, etc)?  I would appreciate it!

Law School Applications / *For those that are in this special situation*
« on: December 11, 2006, 05:37:14 PM »
If anyone here knows of, heard of, or is one of those aspiring to continue law school after you have been academically dismissed from an ABA-accredited law school....please post your stories or experiences here. 

I know that 99% of those applying to law school have never been to law school and probably aren't interested in this post.  But there are students that have been academically dismissed and they are in a unique or interesting situation.  Hardly anything is written about this and so I wanted to make an effort to put this on the forefront in hopes of obtaining valuable and useful information and advice.  Thank you everyone! 

Questions:
1.   Do ABA-accredited law schools accept students that have been academically dismissed?  If so, do they have a special policy or process for admitting them?  What does that student have to do?
2.   How can a student in this situation can do in order to enhance his/her chances to be admitted back into an ABA-accredit law school?
3.       Do they have to re-take the LSATs?
4.       Does employment history help the application of the student?
5.       Does being a certified paralegal help?
6.   Any further recommendations or related experiences/stories that may help?
