Current Law Students / Any MSU students?
« on: March 22, 2007, 02:58:05 PM »
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.

Hey Rufusowner,

Did you apply to MSU?  If you are going back to Georgia, I am sure that they at least know MSU because of their sports.  I am sure no one knows about Wayne or U of D Mercy and therefore you might at least get some recognition with MSU.  Furthermore, they give out more money than U of D Mercy or Wayne.

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.

Current Law Students / Re: 3.23UGPA + 141LSAT Please Advise

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.

Please direct all of your questions about the application process or "life in law school" to the "Pre-Law" discussion board.

You'll find a helpful link on the left side of the page at the top.

Some of us who are actually IN law school like to read the funny comments during class that are often born out of topics involving personal vendettas, name-calling, etc.  If you want help on where you'll likely get in with your bad GPA, etc., you will find great assistance on the pre-law side of the board or at other websites. 

Either way, just as you aren't allowed to go into the women's bathroom if you are a man, if you are not a law student, you should not be in the law student board.  Capice?

As one of those pesky 0L students who has posted on this website, has it occurred to you that we might actually want the advice of someone who is already in law school?  I think you should feel proud, because you made it this far and it is obvious that you are fully enjoying it.  Maybe we should set up an additional slot that is specifically for pre-law students where only law students and graduates could answer.  Until then, as one of those very annoying 0L students, thank you to those of you who actually respond to our questions!!

Hey Molaw,

I know we have talked in other rooms.  I have been accepted and am still undecided but about 80% sure I will go to Wayne because of scholarship offer and placement in Detroit firms.

Hey Molaw,

Those are some interesting numbers.  I have to question the 2.94 GPA average if 30% lose their scholarships since at least the college merit scholars need only a 3.0GPA.  However, it seems the king scholars need to maintain a 3.3 GPA.  Anyway, did you get a free computer this weekend from MSU?  I wonder what kind it is anyway.  Thanks again for the info.  Have you decided?

Congratulations, I am excited for you!

Current Law Students / What to do the summer before law school?
« on: March 03, 2007, 08:07:47 PM »
Should one prepare in any sort of way for law school the summer before?  Is there any books that would be helpful to prepare?  Should one start looking at any of the substantive materials?  Did prepping help anyone do well there first year?  Does anyone think that one should just relax?  I appreciate any and all opinions and what worked and what didn't.
