Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Hofstra Jumps in the rankings
« on: March 25, 2008, 11:42:47 PM »
All the way to No. 98!

I got wait listed there, this may make me want to go there if I get off the wait list.

Anyone else going?

june test be hardest ever.

I was thinking that you had died.  Extended spring break?


Jeffort! Whats up man! Look at my sig! I got good news, I was in Miss. for a while.

Sweet!  and there is nothing in the rejected row either! 



Yeah, Talk too soon! I got Wait listed at Hofstra and Dinged at New York Law. I dont get that really, isnt Hofstra about the same school?

The 2007 entering full-time class maintained a 157 median and 154/159 25th/75th percentile LSAT and a 3.49 median.

But New York Law is a 155 median, a 153 (25th), 157 (75th), and a 3.30 median GPA. Interesting..makes no sense, but all righty then! Can't get into them all lol

Studying for the LSAT / Re: taking June LSAT for waitlists

My thought is, I'm 30, so I am not waiting a year.  My LSAT was fairly late, my apps were fairly late, combine that with this cycle when many people will be waiting long, and the truth is, I will probably be waiting for a bunch of schools into the summer.  And if retaking that test might be the difference between going to Pace, and going to Brooklyn, Rutgers-Camden, or Fordham PT, why not?  It doesn't seem like there is really a downside except for the extra work, and I do think I have a chance of doing decently better than my previous 159. 

Damn, you're 30! That's old as hell for law school isnt it? 3 Years and u'll be 33 before u get a job in law, damn kid!

I will be 33!  Wow, I shouldn't go to law school, because I'll only have 30 years to work as a lawyer!  It obviously won't be worth it.  Haha.

I understand TJC was joking, but the truth is, there will be plenty people my age or older in law school, especially in a night program, where the average age is often about 30.  Even in the day programs, it's usually 24 or 25, not really a humongous difference.

And I still mack on 22 year old girls, so it's all good lol.


LOL it's true, I know a good number of men in their early thirties that are as equally immature as those in their twenties!

j/p

Macking on 22 year old chicks! I must have missed that hahaha...that means I am a year their elder...I still get 19 year old chicks so its all good!

Dear Law School Gods,

Can I hear back from just one school today? Please? I am willing to sacrifice any or all of the following things for the weekend: beer, women, Big XII tournament, driving my car, xbox, sleeping.

Let me know ok? Thanks so much.

For Shame! DO NOT sacrifice championship week man!!

Potentially Texas vs Oklahoma and Kansas vs K-State

In my humble opinion, it is worth taking another year to boost your application if there are schools you really want to go to and you are wait-listed there. 

If you think you can do better on the LSAT - take the time to do that.  Take the october exam and prep fully for it over a long period of time.

Get some valuable work experience for Law School in the year.  Being a paralegal - eh -kind of a waste of time for many people, but can be valuable if you are working in a field of law that you want to enter.  Another option is to find an impressive job that law schools will like to boost you app.  Public Interest work, something with tons of writing or oration, etc.

I wrote this twice, cause i pressed back and it deleted my writing.

But, if you look at some of hte top law schools, transferring is always an option.

Some of them (t-14's) are anywhere from 17-50+ (i didnt look at all of them, but harvard i think was like 34 and i think NYU was close to 40).

It's always a possibility, I think it all depends on your goals and your ambitions. How good you are going to do in law school and how close u were to getting into schools (what kind of scores u had) play a large role as well in transferring (as per LSAC website).

your GPA/LSAT will still play a role just not a huge role.

It's risky business to count on transferring, but it is definitely possible.
