Studying for the LSAT / Re: too early to sign up for testmasters?
« on: November 21, 2004, 02:28:24 PM »
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.

Law School Admissions / Re: J.D. Worthless if not practicing law?
« on: November 21, 2004, 02:24:32 PM »
I don't know who told you that an MBA is basically worthless, but an MBA opens a lot of doors, not only to management positions but also to wall street, etc.

While there are plenty of MBAs that don't know their heads from their asses, there are plenty that walk right into good paying jobs that wouldn't have been options had they not gone to b-school.

Also, if you aren't planning on practicing law, a JD is a good unique thing to have after your name, but before the M.B.A.

Sure, you "can" make it without an MBA, but hey, Bill Gates dropped out of undergrad.. by your logic, getting an undergrad degree is a waste of time too.

Well the only "good" cali school (based on career prospects post-grad) I think I have a chance at is UCLA

I hate the cold, but I'll chase a paycheck to Minnesota if I have to :(

Does your parent school have a b-school?

If so, try to jump into an MBA program next year or the year after

I like the location idea

Funny thing is, CA would be at the top of my list, but only one school is there :(

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: What are the "T1" schools?
« on: November 21, 2004, 11:56:20 AM »
Oh, but that's a lot!

If it was for undergrad that would be a pretty impressive list, but there are only about a quarter thousand law schools anyway right?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / What are the "T1" schools?

I keep seeing people refer to "T1" as a bunch of generally good schools, but I can't find an actual list of them anywhere.
