Choosing the Right Law School / Re: My 146 & My Dilemma
« on: May 21, 2006, 11:17:39 PM »
You might consider Northwestern's JD/MBA program.  When applying to the joint degree program, a LSAT score is not required.  Instead, you'll need to submit a GMAT score but, trust me (I'm a LSAT and GMAT prep instructor), the GMAT is far easier than the LSAT.

I would try to find other law schools that offer this joint-degree because I don't see Northwestern accepting someone with a 146

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Are law school exams open book?

Of my 8 exams: one was a take-home exam (48 hours), one was completely closed-book, one was closed-book, but could bring in only a 20 page outline, and the other four were that anything could be brought it

I would go for it...It's DUKE!! Congrats!

I think Duke has a joint program that offers that

If you have the choice between the 2 schools, pick U of A. It's a better program and much more selective. I heard that ASU lost 15 students of its first year class back in January. U of A would never have this kind of problem. As far as opportunities available in Phoenix, there is no problem; if you want a job in Phoenix, you will get one. All the firms/ government agencies interview here.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Letter of Intent to Enroll

There is no way a school can force you to attend the school, even if you do sign such a letter. It is OK to send in a deposit and still be on the waitlist at another school. Schools know that sometimes people are in situations like this. Now, if you're just waiting to hear from another school, (not on the waitlist)- I would call the school and maybe try to get a 2 or 3 week extension on having to send in the letter of intent and deposit

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Would this plan work???

Also, I think that you may want to tell Rutgers your plan; because they might start releasing people from the waitlist in June or July

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Arizona vs. Arizona State

Apply to both, but if you get into Arizona- choose them over ASU

they've been around for a while, #17 on the T4 list.  PR ranks them #6 as 'most competitive students' -- not sure i care much for that.

they did send me a nice personal email, as opposed to the 'dear computer science/engineering major' one i received from wm & mary.

anyway, if you know something about them, or even have an opinion, i'd appreciate it

Just wondering- how do you know that they are ranked #17 on the T4 list- I always thought that T3 and T4 schools were not ranked?
