If you'd notice my LSN link below, I was done applying quite early..yet still VERY few competes. Do you guys think f-ed up, should I call and see if something was missing? Or am I just slowly losing it.
Due to the fact that I wait trembling for mail and email daily, I spend a lot of time crunching numbers on the [admittedly skewed] LSN charts and lists, as well as the LSAC LSAT UGPA calculator. Some schools that I definately wouldn't mind going to (Cardozo, Brooklyn, Case Western, Tulane and others) seem to be just outside my numbers. However...I really am pretty stingy. What do you all do to determine whether or not you want to apply to a reach school? Am I lacking confidence, or just being a realist? What is a reach really?
I'm having an abnormal amount of fear due to the application process, as if by some fluke I'll be rejected by all my schools. What do you all do for stress relief...video games are not helping, especially when I get stuck somewhere and die continuously, and reading isn't cutting it
I've read http://online.wsj.com/article/SB119040786780835602.html and the angry salary curve (valley) graph, but it doesnt seem to take into account the wave of retirements impending in the next decade. Does anyone have sources on the average age of lawyers in different specialties? While it seems in this market, going to an lower t1, t2, or god forbid 3 or 4 school, especially if private without scholarships, is a poor choice... will there be a hiring binge? Is a degree at this time a reasonable long term investment, rather then the mythical get rich quick method?
Has anyone applying to Hofstra had their file requested? I applied well over a month ago and they haven't done anything with my app, and as my safety that gives away the most money, im concerned about getting it set. I emailed 10 days ago or so to make sure it hadnt disappeared, and they basically said that they were getting to it...
On the Northeastern App, there is a question about being transgendered, and if you are, how you would like to identify. Firstly, this question did not appear on the Ave Maria app I looked over . Secondly, would this make you an URM? Thirdly, if I identify as a male(female), how could they check? Maybe I'm just being juvenile after a long work week.
