Law School Admissions / Re: OSU or IU-Bloomington
« on: January 03, 2005, 05:24:24 AM »
when considering law schools, I would compare such things as:

cost of tuition, fees and other relevant expenses (travel, housing, etc)
curriculums (my majors, specialty/which electives)
acceptance rates and requirements
the state which I live in, and which state I want to practice in
bar passage percentages (if I want to sit for the bar)
number of students/faculty
financial aid

Incoming 1Ls / Student/Faculty boundaries
« on: December 31, 2004, 06:54:52 AM »
I remember some secret inter-dating between students and faculty during high school.
But now at college, the boundary lines between students and faculty seem much more 'fuzzy'- both the faculty and students regularly cross the line into each other's territory.
 
Although it makes a very friendly atmosphere between students and faculty, maintaining the strictly professional relationship is not always easy.

I am wondering if it is common at all of the colleges, or am I the only one who sees the problem?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Will man ever walk on the sun?

Mankind walking on the sun? That possibility is not likely anytime soon.

"Mankind will not remain on Earth forever, but in its quest for light and space will at first timidly penetrate beyond the confines of the atmosphere, and later will conquer for itself all the space near the Sun." - Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky

Incoming 1Ls / Undergrad majors
« on: December 24, 2004, 02:49:45 AM »
I know that law schools require only that undergrad studies are predominantly academic, but what
are the majors of the students here?

i.e. business, mathematics, science, english, etc?

Law School Admissions / Please clarify and verify

I am a second year undergrad about to receive my first (of two) AS degree. I have already enjoyed a couple of sessions with the LSAT prep books, and begun receiving law school catalogs.

I keep a printed copy of "Timetable for the Law School Application Process" posted in my 'home office.' The first instruction is "See your prelaw adviser as soon as you think you may be interested in attending law school." My college seems unprepared to give much assistance or counsel in preparing for Law school, so I am learning much of this on my own.
For instance, when I mentioned my desire for law school, I got 'one of those looks.' I actually have to explain the LSDAS and LSAC. I am possibly the campus's only student who is preparing for law school.

I will complete the two AS degrees during 2005 and then transfer during August for my BS -- at which time I will be considered as a junior. Does that mean the following spring (of 2006) I should register for and take the June LSAT, and possibly again for October when I will be a senior?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Practice Tests...(more serious)

Sick puppy? haha (No I don't have any dogs--too much of a distraction when studying.)
And if you think all of that prep for the LSAT is crazy, how about looking forward to summer and winter breaks--for study purposes!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT Practice Tests...(more serious)

 :) Remember, studying is FUN. I won't 'experience' the LSAT until 2006, but I started studying for it last summer (2003). Why that early? Because, not only does it give me an idea of what to expect on the real test, but it also teaches me a more logical way of thinking. It lets me know what areas need the most practice. I also have to fit it in with my regular college course studies, and now Tax School.
I don't work on the LSAT practice books every day or every week--but I have enjoyed a couple of six week sessions with the books, and plan to start another one very soon. As one of the other posters said, familiarity of the material (and the theory) makes the tests easier and is sure to raise the scores.

And if anyone thinks that is crazy, have a peek at the bar exam books! Those are really thought-provoking!
