Am I missing out on great opportunities by not attending admitted students day?

Law School Applications / Re: REJECTED, ETC. TODAY

I'm sorry to hear that, but it's good to know that UNLV is finally sending rejections out.
If they are going to reject me they should stop dragging their feet.  I just want to move on with my life.

Law School Applications / In-State Tuition

I'm in the mood to argue, so hopefully someone will have a friendly discussion with me.

I propose that there be an out-of-state waiver available for law school.
I only have one public law school in my state, and I was rejected, so now I believe I should get in-state tuition, or a tuition credit to go to law school in another state.

If that didn't work, then I think my home state should give me subsidized loans in addition the the federal loans I already qualify for.

Your thoughts?

One thing I've heard that can be extremely helpful is taking practice exams from the specific professor and having that professor grade them. I think this helps a lot with the professor-specific grading. Each one is looking for different things, but that's nothing new. That's basically an essential skill of college.

If I asked my professors to grade my practice tests, I would get smacked in the face. And furthermore, I would deserve it. They're busy people. It sounds great for students, but I don't see it happening.

Oh DASHRASHI! Who needs a professor? All I really need to do is have you grade my practice tests.

Law School Rankings / We need US News City Rankings
« on: March 27, 2008, 12:52:23 PM »
USNEWS needs to rank cities according to the best Job Markets for new Lawyers.

Most people have told me on here that outside of the top 20 or 30 schools you should use location as the dominant factor. 
How am I really going to decide between  Kansas City and Spokane, Wa?   Albuquerque and Cleveland?  Crime and Salary data only give me a small piece of the puzzle.

I care about level of education, but prospects after law school are probably more important to me.

Help me Decider!

Out of the schools I've been accepted to I've chosen the University of Kansas.

The only other school currently in consideration is Akron, with a full tuition scholarship (I have to be in the top 10% of the class to keep the scholarship beyond the first year)

Assuming (may be a stretch) I'm also accepted to UNLV, New Mexico, and Gonzaga, should I consider any of them over Kansas?

I won't get in-state tuition at any of them. (Only one public school in my state)
I currently live close to Las Vegas

LSN is linked below.

Do any of you know where I can find the rankings methodology?

Do you have a link you could give me?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Thread for potential T2 Students

I've heard that Kansas also places a few students in the mountain west.

I honestly don't know which market I want to work in because I'm not that familiar with either. It's kind of a toss-up, so I'm defaulting back to expense and rank for my decision.  I'm really familiar with Las Vegas, and there's still a chance that i'll end up at UNLV, but they seem to be a little GPA happy this year.

How much stock should I put on the average starting salaries that are reported to US news?

The market I want to work in only has two schools.  They both have average GPAs of 3.6+
I've been rejected by one and I'm waiting to hear back from the other.

I'm probably planning on working for 4 or 5 years near the school I attend and then I might try to move back.
