Like Rage said, I've heard the order of Kent, Loyola, DePaul, John Marshall. I've heard John Marshall is basically a waste of time, however; since there are so many other law schools in Chicago, they really have to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

In regards to John Marshall, their application demands you add an addendum detailing all parking citations. I thought this was a misprint, so I called.  It's not, they want to know every parking ticket.

This seems ridiculous on both a logistical level (how the hell could I remember all the parking tickets I've gotten) as well as a bizarre overstep on privacy.  But, I guess how many parking tickets one has is indicative of how well one will practice law?


Are you really sure you called them, since I did and confirmed what the traffic violation requirement means.  Also, it would be pretty damn tough for anyone to ascertain who has howmany/any parking tickets, considering that a parking ticket is given to the vehicle and not a person.  They wanted to know about moving violations, which is something that the Illinois Bar Assoc wants to know about for clearance down the road.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What Did You Score on the LSAT?

We're going to treat this like a strengthen-thru-assumption type question...
the credited response is that the percentages of respondents on this website will bear no relationship with the general population.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is the 5 pt drop on test day true?

I had the horror story for Sept. 07 testing.  The lighting was poor, which is a real issue, I think, considering how poor in printing quality the actual test books are.  Our proctor then managed to mistime 2 sections, for me the games and the non-experimental RC, shorting us about 7 minutes on both sections.  LSAC upheld everyone's protests, as the proctor admitted his mistake.  I went from a prep average 165 to a 157.  I would retake, but I think I would psyche myself out, honestly.

Moral of story is: Make sure you feel as comfortable as possible when you sit down in that chair.  Additionally, when you get to the test center, if you see a long line to get checked in, stay outside until it dies down.  The girl next to me was sitting in her chair for about 1 hour before we began the test, and that is purgatory.

I can't imagine the hell you are putting yourself through on this.  I'm sitting here creating rogue commas and apostrophes in my mind.

Law School Applications / Re: Addenda for minor traffic violations?

Honestly, I think you're over-thinking this issue.  Just call the school, describe the situation, and get their opinion.  You do not want to have to explain to the bar fitness group why you were playing lawyer and didn't disclose something.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: 2.99 GPA 157 LSAT Critique my list

We have nearly identical numbers...look at South Texas.  Michigan St. is pretty reachable for you, I would think.
I think you might have real trouble with USCarolina...they are pro in-state.

Have you visited Northern Kentucky?

I'm pretty sure when I read Baylor's app they said you needed to submit multiple applications but they would just copy over your report.

I think the schools with January admissions are taking longer.  South Texas has had my app for over a week and hasn't requested my report yet.
