Georgetown is a great school. So are all the others. Go where you think you'll be happy.

I don't think it's crazy at all. I hate all the US News stuff.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Retake LSAT in February? Thoughts appreciated.
« on: December 29, 2004, 05:18:14 PM »
I'm considering doing the same thing. I took it in October, and I actually did prepare pretty well, but the week before the test I was transferred into a new (hellacious) position at my job, worked a ton of hours, and was totally exhausted on test day. Ended up with a 158, considerably lower than I expected. Brooklyn Law sent me a letter the other day saying that they think I'm a really strong candidate, but are somewhat concerned about my LSAT score and would like to see me take it again in Feb. So I guess I'm going to do it. I should have retaken in December but didn't for some reason.

I think it can help, especially if you end up on a waitlist, or, like Brooklyn, there is no 'official' deadline.

Choosing the Right Law School / Brooklyn Law's evil trick
« on: December 29, 2004, 05:10:26 PM »
I opened the mailbox tonight to see a big fat envelope from Brooklyn Law. I was super excited because it's among my top choices. I open it up and grab the cover letter which reads, "We are pleased..." (really getting pumped now) " offer you, an applicant to our school, a copy of Brooklyn Law's magazine, Law Notes."

What a letdown.   :-\

I'm definitely considering crimlaw pretty heavily. I just know I don't want anything to do with biglaw. From what I can tell, even the lower tiered schools in big cities have a lot of great opportunities. Suffolk and NYLS are my two safeties, and I'm hoping to get in elsewhere, but for a career in criminal law I'd be pretty satisfied with either school.

I've always been told that criminal law is going to be pretty standard fare almost everywhere you go. But obviously, choose the best school you can and look at the clinical opportunities.

Majored in theatre arts, primarily for acting. And it's true, classically trained actors are frequently quite intelligent. (Unfortunately, that's like 5% of all actors these days).

I'm taking the test again in Feb. (took in October and was less than thrilled with the result)-- if someone could email me the pdf I'd really appreciate it!
