Where should I go next fall? / Thoughts on Ave Maria?
« on: July 31, 2004, 07:38:49 PM »
What is the national perspective on Ave Maria? I live in Michigan and it has an excellent reputation and in the press people are talking about it rivaling Michigan in about 5-10 years. It already beats UofM in bar passage and clerkships. Do non-Michiganders view it as a school on the rise or, since maybe you haven't heard much about it, dismiss it as a TTT? As you can see I am attending there and was just blown away when I visited and talked to faculty and students. I am just curious about a more neutral opinion. Thanks in advance.

Where should I go next fall? / PLEASE help! Toledo or Detroit Mercy?
« on: July 20, 2004, 08:57:18 PM »
I have been accepted at both and need my decision by this Friday. I live in MI and plan to practice in the Detroit Ann Arbor Area. It is a 1 hour drive to UD and a 40 min. drive to Toledo. There are no scholarships out there so there is nothing to help me in that vain. also, if i do well I would like to transfer to Michigan where I went to undergrad. I would like to get into a big Ann Arbor or Detroit firm for a few years then go into private practice. What are your opinions? Thank in advance!

If so what is your plan of action? What is the best school to go to, if there is one? Will you try to join a firm or open your own private practice with a friend right out of LS? I am just curious because this is what I would like to do (Criminal Defense). Is the best plan to join a firm or PD's office? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Studying for the LSAT / Thoughts on Toledo LS?
« on: July 05, 2004, 02:04:45 PM »
Hey guys (and girls) what are your thoughts on Toledo. I am not in your league as far as LSAT/GPA so Tier 1 is out. Toledo is a Tier 2 (94)on the rise, so I have heard. I have talked to some students and alumni who say they have made a concerted effort to improve their rankings in USNEWS (although I am sure the adcomms will deny this). Is this a school with only a good local rep or is it thought to be on the way up regionally and possibly somewhat nationally? Thanks and congrats on all the AWESOME LSAT scores I have seen for you.

LSAT horror stories / My first LSAT Nightmare!
« on: June 30, 2004, 01:50:13 PM »
I just had my first LSAT nightmare and I took it june 14th. I was in the middle of taking the test when my dad walked in drunk and started yelling at everyone. Everyone acted as if they could not hear him and before I knew it the time was up. The sweet thing was that they let me take the test home to finish it! Needless to say I spent to whole day working on it and then sent it in. BTW, I am only dishonest in my dreams ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Any June LSAT'ers starting to miss it?
« on: June 24, 2004, 10:25:58 AM »
You know in a sick, twisted sort of way they were kind of fun. The challenge of the test and the immediate reward (sometimes) of checking your answers and seeing right answer after right answer. It was like a high that I kind of miss now. Anyone else feel similar?

Personal Statement / GPA Explanation
« on: June 22, 2004, 06:41:06 PM »
I know many people say not to explain your GPA (2.85 Michigan) but I explained it while noting my positive aspects of how I overcame numerous obstacles (worked up to 50hrs. per week to pay for school, fatal car accident of my brother that caused me to miss two exams) I basically told how all of that has helped me become a better person and persavire (sp) while some may have given up. Is this acceptable?
