Studying for the LSAT / Re: Will I lose scholarship if I retake?
« on: April 09, 2007, 07:09:05 PM »
I think your best bet might be to call LSAC.  At least in that case, you don't have to call the school that will then probably try to figure out who you are or would at the least question your intent.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Michigan vs. Heaven
« on: April 09, 2007, 12:03:56 PM »
Heaven is so prestigious.

Really?  I looked all over US News and World Report and couldn't find what tier it is.  It might not be ABA accredited, but I think in a couple of years employment prospects will grow.  Also, Nalp does not list a single firm recruiting from there.  I really have to question its prestige.

Oxford
Yale
Cooley

Kidding, here is the real list:

MSU
Pitt

Why in the world have so many people posted on this site?  Have I just answered my own question?

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Suggest a Masters Degree
« on: March 28, 2007, 12:35:37 PM »
I am assuming here you mean non-professional degree.  Obviously, this is a law school discussion site, so I think that is a safe assumption.  With your bachelors in political science, unless you have a very strong science back ground, I would personally say economics.  I have a master's degree in political science which is close to worthless, hence me being on a law school org.  An economics degree, though still in the social sciences at most school, will allow you greater opportunities for employment and is relatively lucrative.

hmm, i never took an economics course in college so i dont think that will do

doesn't matter

one of my UG econ profs displayed several definitions of economics on an overhead one day.  Besides the usual ones about the distribution of scare resources and stuff there was my favorite:

Economics is the painful elaboration of the obvious. 


I think economics can also lead to the counterintuitive.  It might also be that your experience was at the UG level in which you are given just an overview.  I would argue that in more advanced classes like econometrics you would find more counterintuitive findings and the skills you get from an economics degree are much more markatable then other social science degrees.  Just my opinion, but since the OP had a political science background it would be an easier Master's degree then a lot of the technical/science master's that others on this site have advised him to follow.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Law school loner?
« on: March 28, 2007, 01:38:41 AM »
It's funny, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from college, have a master's degree in which I graduated with distinction and a 159 LSAT and sometimes I feel like a complete loser on this site.  It is about 6-10 points seperating me from them, yet I will go to either a T2 no money or a T3 paid.  I come to this board so often and usually leave feeling exactly like a loner and down and out.  This is even with good numbers and a ton of leadership activities.  Damn you LSAT!!!

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: US News Not Leaked, Released
« on: March 27, 2007, 03:29:26 PM »
I think the US News quick release just went off the site.  When I looked at tier 3 and went back to top 100, all of the schools changed back to last years posting.  Also, I don't think they had updated T3 and T4 because they seemed to have had the same stats.
