Hi. I am wondering if I should interpret school's numbers differently coming from an ivy undergrad?  Would you think that I will have more leverage because of my school, or numbers are numbers? I have a 3.8 and a 159.

It has been discussed to death in the above post but honestly no one really knows for sure since there isn't data grids out there diagramming each undergrad.

Law School Applications / Re: Top Choice a Safety?

I would be PERFECTLY happy at USD :) It is in California and it is not in L.A. However, it would be hard for me to say it is my Top Choice, but it's up there!

Hey,

I just checked to see which schools have requested my reports today and I noticed that Michigan did but under term/year it says Summer/2005, but I applied Fall/2005. What do you think that means?

Love,

Law School Applications / Withdrawing Apps
« on: December 27, 2004, 01:00:43 PM »
I applied to a bunch of safeties but since I got my new LSAT score, I feel fairly confident that I can aim higher. Should I withdraw the apps to most of them so that my spot can be given to someone else? If so, how do I go about doing this? E-mail? Letter? Thanks for the help!

Love,
Q

Law School Applications / Where should I apply?
« on: December 09, 2004, 08:22:45 PM »
Hi everyone,

This board is full of many people much more informed than I am about law schools and who they admit. I have a really low GPA and a semi-decent LSAT score. Am I aiming too high with my list? I have a 2.9 GPA with a B.S. in Information & Computer Science and I got a 164 on my Oct. LSAT (took the December one too but let's just assume I don't improve). Here is my list of schools:

Reach for the sky:
Fordham
UC Davis
UC Hastings

Reach for the skyscraper:
Cardozo
Loyola Marymount

Target:
Santa Clara
Univ. of San Diego
Chicago-Kent
Case Western

Safety:
Southwestern

I am mainly looking at a good IP program, but I don't even know if I will get into any of those :( Is it hopeless? Are there any schools you recommend I apply to? If I don't get into a top 100 school, I'd like to stay in California.

Love,
Q

Studying for the LSAT / Re: 42 LR Questions and 9 more needed
« on: December 08, 2004, 07:26:57 PM »
This is what I remember after perusing this board for three days. Feel free to correct.

1) Monks - non-representative sample
3) River, dioxin, fish - debatable
4) Lawnmower - electric mower causes less pollution than car for one hour
5) Art, intrinstic/extrinsic - extrinsic value can be judged objectively
6) Employees fired by supervisor - only supervisors can decide rules for firing
7) Art, democratic gove - democratic governments
8) Computers, installation of accessories - systems come with accessories installed
9) Cig logos and nine-year-olds - dolphins or exercising men
12) polished spears, caveman - spear could be used for chores
13) meteor hits earth every 100,000 years - erroneously used average as prediction
16) "as they say" with ski trip, "what ends well" - self-explanatory
17) uv rays and caveman - cavemen had genes that were more resistent
18) art works stolen, wealthy people want expensive ones - wealthy investors want valuable art/wealthy investors might want art that is not valuable
19) mice/rats bladder - mice are more able to resist toxin (i think)
23) tuition not resolved with teacher salary increase - self-explanatory
25) parallel majority of under-20 watching tv and 4th graders who watch TV - self-explanatory
26) farms affect other industry - self-explanatory
28) jazz music not profitable - no songs not played on the radio are profitable
29) Municipalities adding new staff - taxpayers don't pay taxes for one year
33) Nylon as natural - if something is made of natural things it is natural
34) Bridges - cable bridge is more aesthetic than concrete skyway
35) Authors die and their text - authors are initially harsh in judging their work and may revise later
36) Speed Bumps - assumption was that people can't use roads with speed bumps
39) Scientists Experiment on Kids - they don't know if drug will effect in long term
40) Meteor Extinction - if something always follows something (sorry i forgot this one)
41) Appropriate Speech and Ediquitte - name-calling stopped by moderator of a panel
42) News Reporting vs. ananomous Letter - analagous situation, debateable
43) Hurting animals at the zoo - might be the parallel situation with voters in a city
