I think you should call your parents and have them come talk to the administration about it, since you sound like a child.
How about you act like an adult and suck it up. Everybody else in your class is dealing with the same thing. It's the product of unfortunate circumstances, that's life and you need to learn to deal with it before you have to go out into the big bad world on your own.

Very helpful advice isn't it.  Johns, you must be a stellar student because your insight and the way you handle people is very uplifting.  I agree that everyone is in the same situation and therefore it really shouldn't effect the curve; however, I am sure the extra stress of not knowing what will show up on the final is not needed.

Congrats Evan,

I really do think MSU will make a name for itself in the next couple of years.  Despite the low Bar passage rates from a few years back, it really is a tier 2 school and has the potential to be there soon.  I think a couple of us should get together and have our own study group so that we can ensure we keep our scholarship. 

Anyone know some nice and quiet areas to live in that aren't too expensive and are close enough to the law school at MSU?

Probably Oklahoma City because Ave Maria is moving to Florida.  The Florida market is pretty tough because there are already quite a few schools in that area with solid reputations.

Hey Molaw,

I think we still have to, but let me know.  On mine I believe it said that there was a $200 tuition deposit due the 1st and a $500 dollar one due the 15th.  Anyway, I too will be sending in those deposits.  I was really impressed with the program and left thinking that I could maintain the GPA and since I want to do government law would be in the perfect place.  Maybe we will be in the same section.  Congratulations on your decision.

Hey Molaw,

What did you think of the program at MSU?  I ended up liking it a lot more than I thought I would and actually have changed my thinking.  I talked to three people all of whom told me the average GPA for 1L's was about a 2.94.  I don't know if it is completely accurate and I heard that they might actually lump together a lot of the scholarship students into the same section (not sure if true), and I don't know if the people I talked to actually gave me an accurate assessment, but it was pretty reassuring.  Let me know what you think about everything?

Hey Molaw,

Have fun at the Canadian Brass thing tonight and I will see you at the scholarship breakfast.  This has been a great week, scholarship lunch thursday at Wayne, scholarship dinner tonight at Toledo, and scholarship breakfast at MSU on Saturday.  That's one full scholarship meal in three days.  I should apply to law school more often.  Anyway, have fun and see you tomorrow. 

Good luck with your answers Evan.  I sat at a table that had an evening student as well because he was an engineer.  He said that the evening students are mostly engineers and people going into IP.  I also know someone who was in the evening program and now does labor relations for the city of Detroit.  There are some good opportunities in the evening program because most of the evening faculty are coming from legal jobs during the day.  Good luck with your decision.

Current Law Students / Any MSU students?

Any students know how many students actually keep their merit scholarship from one year to the next?  The admissions office says that about 30% lose it after first year.  Does this seem accurate to you?  Is a 3.0 GPA difficult to keep.  I appreciate your help and candor.

Hey Molaw,

Nice meeting you too.  I thought that it was much better than the open house.  I feel pretty confident about the law school overall, but I am going to MSU's scholarship breakfast and open house on Saturday as well.  Are you going to the breakfast?  If not, see you at the open house.

Hi JD drew,

I live in Michigan and am currently considering MSU for law.  I can certainly let you know about the state and lansing more specifically since I worked for state government for a brief stint.  I am attending MSU's open house this saturday and would be happy to relay any insights if there is something specific you are wondering about.

I have seen that you have posted this question on a number of threads.  LSAC has changed their procedures and now they will accept your highest LSAT to determine your index.  Others can confirm this.  If this is the case and you have the ability to retake the LSAT, take some time and study like it is your job and smoke that standardized deterministic piece of arbitrary s*"t. Don't be discouraged by what you hear about your LSAT because if you really want to do well as a law student and lawyer, it means very little.  Good luck.
