Oh, Whoa..look, here CNN is referencing the southeastern US weather...and LOOK!! NC and Virginia are both in the picture! OMG!

Of course I've been watching Alabama, so I was totally shocked to see them move from 43 to 36.  Not only 7 spots, but within the region, they're not tied with UGA.  It's that tie that I find most impressive.  7 spots nationally isn't much, but to now say that you're tied for 2nd in the southeast is pretty big. 

How second in the southeast? UA is a great school  What about Duke, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Emory?  I don't know exactly where UNC and Wake Forest are.

I don't count Virginia or North Carolina as the Southeast, that's how.  And I flat forget about Emory.  Southeast to me is pretty much South Carolina to Mississippi, sometimes including Louisiana.  I was picturing Vanderbilt, and then a tie between UGA and UA. 

For what it's worth, UGA, UA, Wake and UNC are all tied at 36th.

UNC isn't part of the South? Hmm. UTK is making leaps and bounds - don't forget about them.

Southeast.  I don't consider North Carolina part of the southEAST.  There's a difference between "South" - south of Mason-Dixin, east of Texas - and "Southeast".  And I'm not concerned about UTK as they're ranked 53.  With 7 other southeastern schools above them, they don't factor in my statement about how it was startling to see UA suddenly on par with UGA.

Your idea of what the SE is the most retarded thing I've ever heard.  It's in the South, and it's in the East...wow, that makes it the SE.

I'm not the only one...according to LSAC:



and yeah, JM, you were being testy by trying to say that I was implying that I'm better by UTK grads and will automatically get a better job.  Hell, I don't even want to practice in the southeast, so I guarantee that I'm not competing against any UTK grads for the jobs I want.  Of course I know I'll have to compete against schools ranked above and below where I end up.  Still, that's not at all what I was saying in any of my comments.  I was saying that it's surprising to see UA now on par with UGA.  In fact, according to the blue map, they're tied for first in the southeast.  Woohoo!  They're #1!

Wow, the LSAC are really geography gurus, give me a minute and i'll find YOU a map.

Didn't Duquesne fall by like an entire tier? I thought last year they were at the very top of T3, then this year somewhere towards the middle of T4.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: USC, BU, or ND

I dont think asians are the overwhelming majority at any school.

I didn't say "majority", I said "too many".  But they actually are at a few...but that is irrelevant.  Why is it so bad to assume or to see that the overwhelming majority of students at a given school would be white?

I don't understand how that's not a valid concern. I don't want a school that's entirely homogeneous, especially in something I'm not. Diversity isn't a bad thing.

So what would you say, if I said, for example, that I didn't want to go to a school because they were way too damn many Asians?
Besides, if you don't like ethnically homogenous schools, then if you don't mind me asking, why the hell did you even apply to ND in the first place?  What did you expect from the flagship of all US Catholic universities?

I'm leaning towards USC. I read that ND is mainly white/conservative, anyone know if this actually holds true? Any other pros/cons would be much appreciated. I'm a big fan of cities, really want a unique experience for the next three years, a relaxed environment and wouldn't mind working back in New York when I was done. All advice is welcomed.

OH NO!! NOT WHITE AND CONSERVATIVE!!

Sorry, but I'm not "SuckIt"...maybe you can get one of the admins or moderators to verify, via IP, that I'm not that person.

And I'm sorry, but did you say you were scoring in the 130's at one point?



This response goes out to both you and the person who posted the 149 thing.  As you may or may not know...and I'm guessing you don't, I didn't study for the LSAT.  That is why I got a 149.  I'm taking it again in June, and after only about 2..maybe 2 and a half weeks of prep, I'm already scoring from 160-164 on practice tests.  I didn't take the LSAT 5 times like some people who I guess were using the "blind squirrel finds the acorn" approach.

lol


If I don't get into any of the schools I applied to, then yeah, I'll go ahead and retake the LSAT.  I just think it's a shame, because I don't really believe the LSAT tests anything at all.


You're silly.

I don't believe it tests anything at all.  Nothing of value, anyway, only the ability to take that test.  I never denied that and I'm not doing it now.  But if you take it 5 times....and presumably you study for it every time, it says a hell of a lot if you can only go up 4 points from your first time to your fourth or fifth time.  At some point, it becomes a matter of learning from your mistakes, and that's not a really convincing case of somebody doing it.  That does speak to somebody's intelligence.


n00b, lesson #1:  when you get pwn3d, then STFU.



Now you're ready for the LSAT.  HTFH!



Alright, alright. You have to keep this within bounds.  If somebody takes the LSAT and only gets let's say...10 answers right, then that says something about them.
