Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 160-164 Thread (give or take)

kcf- I'm definitely hoping for Minnesota.  I was waitlisted there last year with a 5 point lower LSAT, so I think I might have a decent chance this year.  My theory is that they stopped sending out acceptances last week because it was -20 and no one would want to come here if they checked out the weather!  I would have sent any California school that accepted me deposit money immediately last week, that's for sure!

Wisconsin- Acceptance is small snail mail, with a larger info package about a week later

I went to decision today as well.  I am hoping that since mine went to decision on the same day as all the people with high numbers I can sneak in the acceptance pile with them!

Dear Applicant,

  After reading your application, we would like to clear something up for you.  This is the University of Michigan.  I think you were looking for Michigan State.  Don't worry, lots of people get this confused.  I know you worked really hard on this application, so I will forward it to them for you.  You might want to call them to see if they'd like an application fee, since we will definitely be keeping that.

Law School Admissions / Re: maryland scholarships

I was just accepted yesterday, and I got a letter inviting me to interview for a scholarship in April.  It's for the Leadership Scholars Program.  It didn't say anything about how much it might be.  Does anyone know?  I couldn't find information about it on their website.

My brother tells everyone I go to Stanford, like just because I applied (and have no chance unless the devil starts ice skating) that I automatically got in.  So his friends come up to me and are like, oh how's law school?  You are going to Stanford right?

Me: Uh, no...

Lawboy- I had a 162 (took twice) and 3.64, and I just got my acceptance letter yesterday.  I'd say you have a good shot.  I'm a Minnesota resident.  No scholarship offer with it though.  I don't know if that always comes together, but I don't know if they give out all that much $$.

If you look at my LSN you'll see I'm a firm believer that if you don't buy the lottery ticket, there is no way you can win!

I know how you guys are all feeling about having to make tough decisions regarding significant others.  My boyfriend is in grad school in a town I hate, so we are pretty much certain to be doing long distance for at least the first year of law school.  After that he has to find a job in whatever city I'm in when he's done, which I'm worried could be difficult.  Then I have to find a law job wherever he gets into school for an MBA.  Not to mention the fact that we are both very sick of doing long distance because of my need to keep moving to Europe!  I have to say I'm going to be pretty happy when the next 3-4 years are over!

Choosing the Right Law School / IP Law
« on: December 28, 2007, 04:32:06 PM »
IP law seems to be in a different category than other types of law when it comes to how much it matters which school you go to and how far down in the class firms recruit.  Is this a correct assumption?  Would it make more sense to go to a lower ranked school where you get money than go for a T14 if you want to do IP? 

This is just a hypothetical since I haven't heard from schools yet, but I have always been curious where IP people fall when it comes to getting jobs. 

I'm not an Electrical Engineering major (which I am pretty sure is in another category all its own), so I am wondering about how it works for other people.  I was a genetics major, so I'm probably looking at pharmaceutical or biotech IP.  How much is it going to matter where I go to school?
