Incoming 1Ls / Re: Law school loner?
« on: March 27, 2007, 11:38:41 PM »
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!!!

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.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Suggest a Graduate Degree

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.

Despite being someone far away from Nietzsche and the Stoics, I find them the most intersting.

To the OP,

If your question was truly for a research paper on the feelings of African Americans and their reasoning for not posting their LSAT score, I would first have to question why this paper is of merit.  Seeing that you can only generalize to those students on LSN and LSD it doesn't seem like a very representative sample.  Secondly,  by stating your position on this site, has it ever occurred to you that you might bias your already representative sample?  Finally, chosing to draw your sample from a discussion board on affirmative action not only biases those already skewed and unrepresentative results that you found, but would certainly indicate to your sample that you have already made up your mind on this issue.  Finally, despite having the worst sample I have ever seen, how could you possibly ever confirm the people you are sampling are even of the race that they say they are.

With that being said, why don't you come out and just post your gripe with affirmative action.  If you want a real sample, then why don't you go to grad school and take some classes in survey design and research methods.  If you want to post your gripe, then just do it.  By the way, I am a white male so you don't have to jump to conclusions, but I guess you wouldn't know anyway would you!

Check the grade distributions under career services.  Most students get a B+ and they don't offer a rank as in 10/315, they give only a rough estimate of where you would likely stand in terms of percentile.

I am in and got the same stuff on the same day.  I think it is a fairly good school with a unique grading system- no class ranks and most students get B+.  They also house the Jurist online law news source which I think you can get on as a 1L. 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Which school is best?
« on: February 26, 2007, 03:45:29 PM »
Which of these four schools do you think would be the best to go to if one wanted a school with a good reputation that went beyond that region?

I think Wayne is better than both Toledo and MSU.  Granted Toledo is ranked higher based on US News, but you probably have to maintain a 3.3. and I heard that over half lose it.  Plus, career prospects are much better in Michigan if you go to Wayne.  The administration is slow, but I know the professors are really good.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to get some feedback.  Do you think it would be better to go to Wayne with 50% tuition but must maitain a 3.25 and be in a special program with presidents from the two law reviews and moot court or MSU on a full ride with a 3.0?  Thanks.
