Current Law Students / Family Law BIGLAW?
« on: March 06, 2007, 06:30:32 AM »
Hi Everyone I'm new to the board.  I really want to go into Family law but don't know if it's worth it financially.  I'm definitely more drawn to the personal/counselor side of the law, rather than the merger/acquisition or financial side.  However, it seems that BIGLAW only goes for the latter. 

Are there BIGLAW (high-paying firm jobs) available in Family Law ?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Ohio State - OSU Class of 2010
« on: July 08, 2007, 05:03:07 AM »
Hey everyone!  I'm a class of 2010 - er!  Just wanted to say hi.  And to answer your question thesurreallaw, I so wanted to live in the Gateway but it proved to be a little too pricey.  As such, I'll be staying in a local apartment complex about 10 miles from campus.  Did anyone else sign up for the mentoring thing? 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Priority Waitlist?
« on: April 09, 2007, 02:17:15 PM »
I just got an email from UIUC telling me I'm going to be placed on the priority waitlist, but it isn't ranked.  Hmm.   

I guess being on a "priority" waitlist means that I'll have priority over just regular waitlisters or..? Can someone please shed some light?

White, top 25 undergrad, 3.55 gpa, ok ec, ok soft, great rec/ps... What kinda LSAT am I lookin at for cornell/gtown/ about penn/chic/va?

I would guess, and this is just a guess, but you'd probably need in the neighborhood of a 166-169 LSAT score. Of course anything higher (in the 170s range) and you'd pretty much be in.

They are decreasing class size by about 30 places - to 210 ish. or hoping to at least. I think WashU will be looking at its waitlist relatively soon, so don't lose hope and stay on it!!!! I want you there!

Yay I feel so wanted :)

OSU went up 8 spots from 39 to 31!  W00t, W00t! 

Depaul dropped considerably.  This makes my almost dead-locked decision about choosing a 45k scholarship at Depaul and 10k per year scholarship at OSU a no-brainer!  Thanks for kickin' ass and takin' names OSU.   :D

Just found out I was waitlisted...   :-\  Does anyone know about WashU's waitlist?

Hmm... guess the wait rages on. 

Law School Admissions / Anyone been Rejected from WashU Yet?
« on: March 27, 2007, 04:06:55 PM »
Anyone?  Seems like they're taking forever to give me a decision!!

See, the 6 Month-ers are definitely out there  ::) 

What sucks is because most of us are waiting for that one top 20 school to come through we'll necessarily have to shell out a couple of seat deposits in the meantime!
