I was impressed by FSU's private sector starting salary, but their employment @ grad rate was kind of low

Didn't look at UF though

You can download this year's october lsat from

Just keep in mind, the scaled scores are curved.. so a 172 will always be about the 99th percentile, etc

Get used to thinking about your grades and scores as curved!  You're going to law school, after all :)

Fordham has a really nice "Campus" .. it's right across the street from lincoln center, which is really pretty at night.

I wish I could block those damn ads.. the Adblock plugin for firefox can block them on plenty of other sites but when I try to use it to block them on gmail, gmail stops working

Apparently there's a custom CSS you could use to block them but I couldn't get it to work

You guys are scaring me!

I want to work in Cali, but I'll chase a paycheck to NY or DC if I have to!

Do these things still apply if you're going to a decent school? 

For example U Minnesota, Emory, GWU, Wash U, BU have decent rankings, would it actually be really hard for me to find good paying work in cali?

I'm taking the lsat at pace so I've been taking practice tests there

The classrooms are really nice, and so are the outsides of the buildings, but I really don't like the campus.. it's really small (from what I've seen), and it's right on this main road (with no real breathing room).

I call them Games (games), Arguments (args), and Reading Comp (rc), that was the confusion

I just took this test today, [brag]did well.. although I did get two questions wrong on this section..[/brag]

If you want a further explanation of this game let me know, I just went over it with one of my classmates after the test, so it's still fresh in my mind.

I don't really know how to rank these, but these are the schools I'm applying to..

If anyone is bored enough to rank them, I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts..

These are just "ranked" in order of my chances of getting in (3.8/~170).. Hey, the less interested they are in me, the better they must be right (no one likes a desperate law school)?  ;)

Well keep in mind that people complete the test in new york several hours before it's administered in hawaii..  so it's not a good idea to let people take the answers out of the test, because they can help people cheat
