Acceptances / In at NYLS

By email.  I wonder how much money they should have to offer to choose them over Pace (14K, 3.0)?

Where should I go next fall? / Pace admitted students day 3/29
« on: March 30, 2008, 06:51:51 PM »
Anyone here who was there yesterday?  What did you think about it?  I didn't get to meet as many of the other potential students as I would have liked.

The females were rather attractive overall, I will say that.

Where should I go next fall? / Seton Hall and St. John's
« on: March 26, 2008, 01:52:31 PM »
I applied to St. John's rather than Seton Hall after hearing they had substantially better placement in NYC.  But I am concerned about their drop in USNWR this year.  Seton Hall is now about 20 points ahead, even with all the negative publicity from this past year.  How did this happen?  Is there something good about Seton Hall I haven't heard yet?

Law School Applications / Leverage now or leverage later?
« on: March 24, 2008, 10:16:54 PM »
I have a full-scholarship offer to Toledo, and I want to leverage it to try to get a T3 in the Northeast to give me more money or lower the GPA to keep a scholarship.  Should I do that now, or do as my dad says, and wait until I hear from other schools or better schools (T2) off the waitlist to see if I want to negotiate?  Toledo requires $75 by April 1, and I am not going there, so it might be not the most ethical thing to keep that scholarship just to have it as a negotiating tool. 

Studying for the LSAT / taking June LSAT for waitlists
« on: February 29, 2008, 05:42:45 PM »
I took the LSAT in Dec and Feb (cancel score in Feb) and I am probably looking at a lot of long waits and some waitlists.  Is it common for people to retake the LSAT in June to try to get in off a waitlist?

Where should I go next fall? / Villanova job prospects
« on: February 27, 2008, 10:26:43 PM »
Seems like a decent school in a nice area.  Also a little less pricey than some of the other privates.  What are job possibilities like for the majority of students?  I keep hearing Temple is best in Philly but Villanova has similar stats.

Law School Applications / FAFSA and merit aid
« on: February 24, 2008, 04:19:00 PM »
I'm a little confused about FAFSA (and need access).  Is it only for need-based aid?  Or are some schools that require it for merit aid as well?  I have a decent amount saved up because of working for a few years, and therefore I doubt I will get much in the way of need-based grants.  And I am not looking for loans this year.

Where should I go next fall? / Brooklyn and Cardozo Biglaw
« on: February 19, 2008, 08:44:53 PM »
What are the real percentages - and what does everyone else end up with?

Basically, is there any real difference between Cardozo median, Brooklyn median, and St. John's or NYLS median?

Where should I go next fall? / Rutgers-Newark in NYC
« on: February 19, 2008, 02:07:47 PM »
How does Rutgers-Newark placement in NYC compare with Cardozo, Brooklyn, St. John's, NYLS, Pace, Albany?  Basically, does saving the money pay off, or screw you in the end?

Where should I go next fall? / throw one last reach?
« on: February 17, 2008, 05:19:54 PM »
Are there any schools that have been acting kind of weird this cycle, maybe taking some people they shouldn't?  I'm thinking of throwing another reach app out there with my Ivy GPA just under 3, 159, and grad degree.  Maybe GW PT or Tulane...any others?  Again, this would be a school I would be very unlikely to get into, but might get lucky at.
