Studying and Exam Taking / What constitutes "good grades"?
« on: February 13, 2009, 01:50:04 PM »
My school hasn't ranked us yet as that won't happen until the end of the year, but I'm freaking out about staying in the top third of the class. I go to UNLV and they have a B curve. So in a B curve, what is considered a good grade/ very good grade? How much are B+ and A- really worth? It would be great if someone would tell me. I don't need specifics I just mean generally, if you were at a B curve school, what would grades mean to you? Also, what would be a very good GPA?

Studying and Exam Taking / Torts: Trespass v case for 1L
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:04:39 PM »
I am reading my torts case book right now and I am absolutely confounded by the differentiations it is trying to draw between trespass and Case. Anybody have suggestions that will help me understand this stuff better? I only just started law school yesterday and am already entirely lost.

Hi guys,

I'll be going to UNLV in August and still have yet to find a place to live. Are there any suggestions out there that you guys can think of? Thanks!

Law School Rankings / Curves at law schools and how do they work?
« on: March 11, 2008, 03:09:24 AM »
I was just wondering if anyone out there would be kind enough to explain how curves work in law schools. I keep hearing things like  3.3 vs 2.8 etc but I haven't a clue what any of it really means. If there are some kind souls wonderful enough to explain this I would be forever grateful.

Also, does anyone by chance know the curve structures of UNLV, UC Davis and Loyolla M?

Where should I go next fall? / How to ask for better financial aide?
« on: March 11, 2008, 02:55:47 AM »
Hey guys,

I got into UC Davis, loyolla and UNLV for 08 and I was wondering if any of you guys would be willing to help me figure out how to ask them for money. Davis hasn't gotten back to me on the issue of money, and neither has Davis. UNLV is willing to give me a full scholarship but it's only renewable if I stay in the top third of the class my second and third years. How do you think I should ask these various schools for more money? I'm worried about being both delicate and absolutely serious at the same time. Help?

Hey guys,

I was hoping you would give me some insight into my choices right now. I'm really worried about getting a job coming out of school but at the same time I don't want to be broke as a graduate. What do you think of these few schools?

American: no money
UNLC: Full scholarship plus 100 dollar stipend per month for 3 years contingent upon me staying in the top third of my class.

Chapman, Full scholarship for three years contingent upon me maintaining a 3.5 GPA

Loyola Marymount: No money


UC Davis: No money

Studying for the LSAT / Anybody Got the June and December 2007 Exam?
« on: January 13, 2008, 12:46:09 AM »
Hey guys,

I'm studying for the exam for February and I was hoping to get a hold of the most recent exams. If anybody's taken one of those and has a digital copy, I'd be forever grateful if you could send it to me. It would help a lot.

Thanks!

Hey guys,

I've got a final PS draft that I really need to perfect. Anyone out there willing to do it quick?
It's gone though about thirty or so revisions and I think it's relatively good, but it's missing that extra polish that I simply can't seem to get to. Any help that can be given about syntax, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I am filling out all of these apps and they ask you how many other schools you're applying to. I'm applying to 15 schools total. How bad is it that I have to list all of them? Can I get away with  not listing some? And how badly will this impact my chances of getting in somewhere?

Law School Applications / Addendum Help
« on: December 06, 2007, 04:59:12 PM »
I took the LSAT three times, Feb 07, June07 and Sep 07. First I got a 157 (no real excuse other than work getting in the way of studying.), June (food poisoning and I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the game section.) September not problems.

How do I phrase this without sounding like a flake?
