General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Sports Law

All of these answers seem to be right on target.  Additionally, I'd probably just go to the best school I can and try to make sure its located near a major city- NYC, LA, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, etc. so that I can intern or network with others in the field....Most people go in thinking they want to do one thing, but end up changing their minds....You may be totally set on Sports Law, I'm just saying (as someone else thats a little interested), going to the best school you can get into may be the best option.

To answer your question though:  agent, NCAA, professional team, lobbyist

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Arizona

Based on things so far, its not looking too good for UofA....I've lived in places alot worse though, so I may not mind Tucson....


Commoner and T.T.T. Splitter, where are you both thinking about going?  Am I correct in assuming Zona's not even on the radar...Looks like they specialize in Indigenous Law and not much else??

I went to ASU for undergrad and it is EXTREMELY hard to get in state residency.  I eventually did, but not until my Junior year. 

To get in state tuition you need to file taxes for two years in AZ and you can't be outside AZ for more than two weeks in one year(among other things).  I had to show them two years of ATM/bank records to prove I didn't leave the state.....


Wow, that's insane...

What does everyone think if we take residency out of the equation (assuming I don't get it anyway)?  UofMiami ($16K/yr) or UofA ($15K/yr)???

Thanks for the input everyone!  I had pretty much ruled UofA out and decided on Miami until I went back and read my scholarship letter from UofA...Out of State tuition is $28K a year and In State tuition is $17K a year.  My scholarship is $15K, renewable...So, IF Arizona has lax residency laws, I could be going to school and paying $2K in tuition for year 2 and 3.....

Huge difference...Job prospect suddenly aren't THAT important.



When I was looking into their residency requirements, I determined I could never get residency.

Wow....Why?   Any place I can get this info?

Tucson is definitely ugly. It's also dusty, and every home is located within 100 feet of railroad tracks.


Good to know...

I am in at several T3 schools, and currently on hold at a few T2 schools. I'm wary about shelling out so much cash and/or taking out loans for these schools. Where could I potentially get in if I waited a year and were in-state (i.e. Colorado, UNC, Iowa, U Washington, Florida, Arizona...)? I've taken the LSAT's three times and ended up with a 154, 155, and 156 all in aequential order. My GPA is roughly 3.3 from a top liberal arts college, and I have very favorable soft factors (although this isn't having quite the impact I anticipated this cycle....) Thanks.

Im in the same boat man....UofA looks really economical for me right now....Did you apply?  Do you know anything about the law school?

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: US News Not Leaked, Released

Anyone thinking about next year's rankings yet? I know, I know, its ridiculous, but honestly I kinda am...I need an intervention.

I'd really love to go, but until they show me some money, I refuse to spend any on them...I've been to DC three times in the past 6months also and been around campus each time so don't really know if its worth it....let us know how it goes though.
