Studying for the LSAT / Re: LG easier now...?

FWIW, at my Dec. 07 test, a girl did go back and try to do some answers from another section.  She got pulled aside and told that she was getting written up. 

Don't let that happen to you: just always leave the final minute for filling in blank circles that you haven't had time to answer.

Poke around the threads on the NJ250 list and the like.  The short answer is: job options coming from Vandy are great, especially in the Southeast.  Outside of that, they are just OK, but doable.

A) You can go to USNews and get the overall info for free.

B) I know this will sound preachy, but:  Seriously?  You're willing to invest 3 years and $100k+ in a future career that will shape your entire life, but you won't spend a measly $15 for key information that will help you make your decision?  Furthermore, then you ask people to plagiarize the info and post it (illegally, I believe) on a forum dedicated to the study of law, of all things?

Yea. Great.  Shoulda taken that BLS scholarship after all, I guess.

Unfortunately, we probably won't be able to visit (getting married this summer) again, so any references for decent apartments would be a gold mine.

Talk Is Cheap:  I wouldn't want to end up living next door to some X-pensive Winos.

This is true.

Just keep in mind the (oft-pointed out) flipside that there is higher competition for those jobs in Boston, and that the cost of living is much higher around Beantown than in the Twin Cities.  A house that runs $300,000 in Minneapolis will run you $600,000 in Cambridge.

That being said, if all other things were equal, I would be hard pressed to turn down Boston for Minnesota.  Had I gotten into BC, it might have been an issue  :-\

Boston's great.  Minneapolis seems great, too, in a different way.

When you say job prospects are good in/around Minneapolis, is it such that most people who want a firm job in the area manage to get one?  How about clerkships? 

Are the folks who do Moot Court instead of a journal at a major disadvantage?

I dunno.

Honestly, you're probably best served going to Brooklyn, but it might take awhile to find a job.  It might not, though.

Or maybe I got the last of their money   :-[

They denied your request?

Regardless: Congrats!  That's great.  If you want to work together to find good apartment deals/share info, let me know.  We're in similar situations.
