Texas Tech / Re: First day of orientation...

Honestly, I didn't expect to learn much. I think they just didn't want us to rest before our first week of classes. They love torturing us. And I def. think they made it clear that TTU Law is the red-headed step-child of the TTU campus.

Yeah, don't remind me about that I noticed Krahmer posted his cases for us to read for the next week already.

Ok, I'm lazy and i don't want to tear through all my boxes to find my orientation papers, anyone want to review the significant details, i.e. when, where, who, what?

Start time - noon at the rotunda on the 1st floor of the the Rawls College of Business Administration (it is recommended to arrive between 11:15 and 11:30 to park and walk to the building).

Parking - either R-21 or Z-4 (but you need to have your parking decal affixed to windshield)

We start with a lunch, and then orientation lasts till around 4pm...

Thanks Aron, Box world has a way of helping your lose things around here! I guess our legal practice class does meet during this week, but I'm guessing its to go over library usage, etc. I think I'll follow y'alls lead and just bring pens and paper for this first day and play it by ear after that.

Anyone who went to the hispanic law bootcamp, give us more detail about this binder that we can check out in the library? I heard someone at the bookstore telling me about it, what's the deal with it?

I'll see y'all there around 11:15-ish!

Hey guys, I want to take a poll of us and figure out what all you'll be bringing with you the first day of orientation tomorrow. I'm not sure if I should hassle with books or laptops or whatnot. What are you guys planning on and I'll do the same?

Wow! That's very impressive! Thanks for responding!

How do you like it in Lubbock and Texas Tech Law?

I'm just kind of looking for general impressions. I have committed 100% to Tech Law since writing this post a few months ago. Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to make it to the admitted students day in April, but plan on visiting TTU again in May!

I'm so excited about being in next years class. I really think TTU Law has a lot to offer and is only getting better over these last few years. How much do you know about the new law school building? I'm hoping it will be open for my 3L.

Anyway, I'll stop rambling. Please give me all your impressions and opinions of the school! Thanks in advance!

I have applied to TT and am considering it heavily for law school, anyone on this board either go there or know someone who has graduated from there? I would like your opinion of the school and its faculty as well as general opinions on whether it is a good choice for law school. For far I am impressed. thanks in advance!

General Board / Re: Good GPA, Decent LSAT
« on: July 13, 2004, 01:22:49 PM »
To be honest I was considering if necessary taking the LSAT again in October, basically all I want to do is solidify my admission into SMU which is by all realistic intents and purposes my first choice, if I had a crystal ball and I knew I could get into SMU with this score I would not bother to take it again. I plan to apply for early admission to these schools in hopes that it will slightly improve my chances of being accepted. I have debated whether I should take the Powerscore Weekend Prep Course before the October LSAT since I do have a background with the test and possibly could score better with new techniques. My biggest problem I suppose is that I have a hard time completing the sections. I counted on the last test and I had lost 10 points because i guessed on questions that I ran out of time on. If powerscore could find a way of speeding me up I think I could be more competitive in my LSAT scores. Anyone else have any advice on what I should do. If SMU accepts me I'll be a happy man and I would be willing to die trying to get accepted. The way I look at it is if I have a fighting chance now with SMU and I score even an average of a 155-156 after i take my next test, then wouldn't the give me an advantage? Also, I forgot to share more of my extracurricular background. I'm been a Student Gov't Senator, College Republicans President for two years, Pre-law Information Officer just at my university alone, do that really help to sway the law school into accepting me? I don't know, I'd just like to know what you all think I should do. I'm open to any / all advice. Thanks!
