If your goal is to get a job at a top law firm then by all means go to Harvard, but if you find that a couple years out you're not happy being a servant, you won't have many other choices cuz you must make the dough to pay off your educational mortgage. If I were in your shoes I would take the full ride to Duke, but many on this board will tell you tell you otherwise.  You're a lucky bastard.  Good luck to you.

Law School Admissions / Re: IYO too soon to threaten legal action??

Sue them, it's obvious they have no intention of refunding your deposit.  Actually, first threaten to sue.  Sometimes that alone will spur them to action.  Then, if there's no contact, take em to court.

No, the lawyers were from T1 & T2 schools from the Midwest & Northwest. Several were admitted to US District Courts, other states, and their law school states and others were only admitted to the state where they earned their jd.  Their ages also varied.
Does this mean that if you are only going to counsel your clients and not litigate, you don't need to sit for the bar?

I was researching the likelihood of returning back to CA if I went out-of-state and noticed lots of lawyers at law firms and companies where the lawyer in question is not admitted to the CA bar. How is it possible to work as a lawyer and not be admitted?  Do they only work as counsel and do not actually practice?  If anyone knows please drop a word.  Thanks.

Law School Admissions / Re: early decision and October LSAT

When I spoke to the Dir of Ad from OU, she said Oct is fine, but the rest of your pkg should already be submitted.

As for applying early. I've been told the earlier the better; however, a lsd post warned me that applying too early will decrease my chances.

I'm going to have everything ready, wait til Oct. 25 for the results and overnight the early decision apps.

Don't give up hope. According to the ABA Official Guide for the 2003-4 applicants, 12 out of 26 students were admitted to OU with your numbers.  If you don't want to retake those are still pretty good odds.

Law School Admissions / Re: No Testmaster courses are available in CA

There are two testmasters out there.  The one you want is at

No, the rest of the class will not know your diagnostic score unless you tell them.  You'll download the report from their website, so the instructor won't even know what you got.
