Law School Admissions / Re: twins applying to law schools
« on: November 21, 2004, 03:45:37 PM »
I've seen a school advertise that it has identical twins enrolled.. I can't remember if it was a med school or a law school, though

Anyway, don't split up more than half of them, if any at all

Hey I was just thinking about BU vs Notre Dame -- why do you prefer BU?

Yeah all 3 of my teachers at princeton review got high 170s or 180s, and one of them is an incredible teacher (incidentally he's had 3 180s, trains other princeton review teachers, and is writing a book for the princeton review), one is a pretty good teacher, and one is not a good one, although he did teach me a lot

So, try to ask people current or previous students in your area who they had as teachers and what they thought about them

Also if test masters only gives 4 practice tests, IMO you should really take the initiative to get some extra times practice tests in, at least an extra 4 more.. this was advice I got from one of my teachers, and I think it's really helped me

Some of us in my PR class have been going to the make-up diagnostic tests (if you miss it on saturday, you can make it up on sunday), and taking extra proctored tests

According to the annotations on the leiter rankings, Martindale-Hubbell has info on where lawyers at specific firms went to law school..

Does anyone know where to find this info?

mmm, good points

Thanks for your time javert and laur :)

No real visits, although, since my lsat will be at pace law school, I've been taking a practice test there every day

Their classrooms are nice, and their buildings look nice from the outside.. but that's about it, from what I've seen.

Hey where'd you get that info about auto accepts?  Is it available for other schools?  That info would be really helpful


Scary thing about santa clara is that about 35% of students are unemployed upon graduation

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Southwestern? Is it really that bad?

According to USNews Southwestern is a T3, but is it really that bad?

I know the numbers of its incomming class are extremely low, but their employment@grad and tuition statistics are better than some much higher ranked schools

I only ask because I'm taking a second look at cali schools, and I was considering replacing one of my safeties (like loyola chicago) with this one, because, in the long run, I'd like to settle down in cali

Your course should end just a few days before you actually take the LSAT

Also, try to do some research on the teaching quality of the specific teachers you have

I don't care how many 180s they got, if they can't teach, you'll be wasting your money.

BTW, 99th percentile just means 172 and up.  172 isn't that high -- often means you can get at least 10% of the questions wrong.
