Where should I go next fall? / Chicago Real Estate
« on: December 21, 2007, 12:36:36 PM »
I need a little clarification on the best law program in chicago for those pursuing a career in commercial real estate law. I keep hearing mixed things saying DePaul but not clear. Especially when I look at their list of programs/specializations and it mentions nothing about real estate. Anyone?

- And just in case if anyone has specific firms in mind that are notable Commercial Real Estate firms in Chicago Id really appreciate it. Thanks!

Hey thanks for the reply!

Id like to see all the explainations that you and others have made on this board but i kinda like ot have it with me as im going and utilize it that way. So what would you say is the absolute best book to buy with questions and explainations?

Additionally I have a 3.18 GPA and plan on taking the June 08 LSAT. If i plan on being among the first to apply come fall do i have a realistic chance with my GPA and an assumed < 160 LSAT? I havent started studying for it even yet so Im unsure where I will be, I am a smart guy just not that good at standardized tests especially under such time constraints ( i tend to over analyze ALOT )

Where should I go next fall? / DePaul Students - Real Estate

I have seen some people on this board discussing Chicago schools and which of their programs rank higher than others. For DePaul I have seen its Real Estate progam as a good program but when investigating their website it makes no mention of any type of Real Estate program/degree/specialty. What gives??

Studying for the LSAT / Re: JUNE TESTS HARDER??

So the answer to his question would be yes, june is harder.  Harder to get a higher number
 So are you guys agreeing or disagreeing with the statement by this post.

Yea basically that was what i was getting at. It isnt a harder test, but it is well known that it is harder to get a higher score. So the concensus is that is true? I know nobody would have an answer to this but hypathetically if what would it take on an OCt test to get say a 160 as opposed to June. I guess what i am asking is how big of a disperity could it really be? 5 10 questions???

Studying for the LSAT / JUNE TESTS HARDER??

Is there any truth to June LSATS being generally harder than the others? Do people taking this one tend to be the "overachievers" that set a harder scale? Is there any truth to this at all??

Thanks Clairel I appreciate your advice. I agree with you completely and I guess I was on JM cause of my specific path I want to follow with Commercial Real Estate and the opportunity for the LLM in that field. It just sucks because the earliest time I can begin is fall of 09 which just seems like forever for me and I am unclear as to what i should do in the mean time but thats for me to figure out.

Also my credentials are borderline (3.18 GPA and TBD LSAT) so getting into those schools isnt going to be given for me and realistically if I cant get into one those ( Kent Loy, Depaul) i would have to question to go at all.

So to continue, which LSAT do you think would be most benefial for me to take, This June 08 or the OCtober one. I dont hear much on this board about the June LSAT as opposed to the others and was wondering what some opinions would be especially for my current situation (working full time and applying fall of 08)

Thanks again I do appreciat it

Hey thanks for the reply,

Can you elaborate a little more on the first year free thing??

Additionally, for my desire to start asap. Could I conceivably do this. Take the June 08 LSAT, apply fall 08. Start in the spring of 09 at John Marshall only to transfer to a different school fall of 09?? How would that work as far as taking my second semester worth of courses in the fall?

I didnt know they had 20% attrition rate why is it relatively easy to get in?

What are your opinions on the Joint degree for me considering my direction of Comm Real Estate?
