It is like a law school version of the fight club.  I wonder who will win.

Not sure how many Deans Michigan has had, but from what I hear Heaven's has been there for an eternity.  This guy is not only knowledgeable but he is omniscient.  Down side is that he is also omnipresent, so don't think you can get away with missing a class.

If you go to Pitt, since I believe you said that you lived in the Pitt area, it would only cost about 60k because of in-state tuition.  Whereas out of state tuition at Cooley would cost you roughly $11,500 per year for a total of $34,500, I think you would be better off going to Pitt.

Anyway, I am sure this is a flame and not worth the time responding.  Does anyone know how you can determine whether a school "scholarship stacks"?  I am interested in finding out whether MSU does this.  Thanks.

Sorry, I couldn't resist mocking those 1L (student's from Great schools) who put up the taking question's threads. Anyway, does anyone know roughly what percentage of students at MSU lose their scholarship?

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.

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.


Kidding, here is the real list:

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, 09:35:37 AM »
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.
