Current Law Students / Re: full scholarships
« on: November 28, 2005, 07:36:41 AM »
Some California schools' scholarships are harder to get than other schools'. If you do well on the LSAT, you should definately get a scholarship from somewhere, and most schools have full scholarships available. If you get a 160+, I'd guess you could get a full ride to a few Cali schools... if you want a full ride to one of the TOP cali schools, you'll need at least a 170... HTH

Some of you know-it-alls need to wait until grades come out before speaking about how easy your competition is.

word... I learned at my wiz kids tryout in the third grade that you can't judge a brain by the person surrounding it.

Law school isn't as bad as people are lead to believe. The readings may pile up, but there is always enough time to read them. The material isn't terribly difficult to understand, and the socratic method, at least at my school, isn't very intimidating. The problem with law school is that you never know how you stand in relation to your peers, or should I say competitors. You're not quite sure as a 1L what you should be getting from the material. So... if you are comfortable with the fact that you'll learn what you'll learn and will not know how you are doing until exams, then law school isn't too bad. If, on the other hand, you can't accept not knowing, if you stress out, if you're confused about the material, if you get too far behind, then law school is as hard as they say.

I spent about $950 for my class books, $66 for a Black's, and I will be buying a couple of E&Es... so over a grand for my books this semester.  >:(

GPA doesn't always correlate with intelligence. BioChem majors earn their 3.5's. Some people (me for instance) don't try...

So then what's a biochem major with a 3.9? And now for the really tricky question -- how about one that never did anything, at all?
:-\
a) a good earner

b) a flunkee?

I'm saying that a 3.5 means different things for different majors.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / USC

GPA doesn't always correlate with intelligence. BioChem majors earn their 3.5's. Some people (me for instance) don't try... I'm here on scholarship, and hate my major. Thus, I have no problem skipping half of my classes and snagging B's. When I have to borrow over 100k to go to law school, you can bet I won't be missing any classes or putting off any homework. Now if you are a phys ed major who tries VERY VERY hard to earn C's, maybe law school isn't the best idea. On the other hand, half of the top half of the class would be the bottom half of the class if the bottom half of the class wasn't there. ;)

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: IU-B vs Case....Wayne?
« on: June 18, 2006, 05:29:05 PM »

Indiana - 39.3%
Wayne - 92.5%

I'd say IU has a little more reach than Wayne.

Wayne is a commuter school.  A lot of its students --especially grad students-- are professionals who live in metro Detroit... i.e. they already have jobs.  I don't understand why you insist on comparing apples and oranges.  If you want to practice in Detroit, Wayne is a great choice.  If you don't, it's not.

 ??? That was my first post in this thread, so I'm not really insisting on anything. It may be that Wayne grads choose to stay in-state, but by doing so, they create a smaller alumni network elsewhere and concentrate grads in one region.

A IUB JD is not going to take one any further outside of IN than Wayne would take one out of MI. 


Percent employed in-state:

Indiana - 39.3%
Wayne - 92.5%

I'd say IU has a little more reach than Wayne.
