Law School Admissions / Re: Does being a lawyer HAVE to be stressful?
« on: October 06, 2004, 01:44:47 PM »
Man, I won't touch family law with a 10-foot pole...because I think it's too stressful.  Too much emotional garbage to sort through. 

It's all relative, I guess.  Depends on what tends to stress you out.

Law School Admissions / Re: Military service help at all?
« on: October 06, 2004, 08:33:55 AM »
In my opinion, military service is just like any other work experience in regards to Admissions.  The fact that you have it doesn't mean you get automatic bonus points.  Length of service and your MOS will probably be taken into consideration.  It's your job to "spin" it so your experience aligns with the skills and ethics you'll need in law school and in practice. 

I know that some schools in VA really like military service....

Is there any need to apply now before you get your score?  Your application file will not be complete without it anyway.  I'd say just fill out the common app on LSACD, and as soon you evaluate which schools you can get into with your score, just zap over your application.

Anything about Catholic?  I'm applying there simply because it's the only DC school I'm pretty sure I can get into. 

My only CUA experience is staying overnight at one of their undergrad dorms.  Yuck....

Law School Admissions / Re: I hate LSAC
« on: October 05, 2004, 01:48:53 PM »
I received notification from one of my undergrad schools of when they sent my transcript.  According to the website, LSAC still hasn't received my transcript over a week later.  It shouldn't take more than 2-3 days for mail to go from Upstate NY to PA! 

Makes me wonder how often LSAC really updates their website.  Or maybe my transcript is lost under a couple tons of incoming mail?

Law School Admissions / Re: The "I am not applying T-14" Thread
« on: October 05, 2004, 09:34:29 AM »
That's me to a T!  Here's my roster so far, but a few may get knocked off when I get my LSAT and LSAC GPA (4 colleges, so I'm not sure what it will be).

Safeties:
Catholic (USN 82)
Hofstra  (USN 89)
Hamline (T4)
SUNY Buffalo (USN 82)
St. Louis U. (not WUSTL)
Albany

Possible:
NorthEastern (USN 77)
Chicago-Kent    (USN63)
OSU (USN 42)
U. Missouri   (USN 63)
Cardozo

Reaches:
UI-UC (USN 27)
U.Wisc (USN 31)
American (USN 56) - applying for full-time but would probably take part-time if offered
Washington & Lee
George Washington (part-time)

I cut and pasted this roster and am too lazy to remove the ranking info.

1000
158-162.  My goal is to break 160.  If I get a 157 or lower, will it be too late to sign up for December?
