Where should I go next fall? / Re: In at suffolk - question for admits
« on: February 07, 2005, 10:37:45 PM »
I didn't get any from them. And I haven't seen anybody list any money from them either. I get the impression they are pretty stingy and that's how they paid for their shiny new building.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Brooklyn or Northeastern?

<I'd choose Northeastern... but maybe that's just because I love the Boston Bruins.

With the lockout that reasoning just isn't going to work man. But it's nice to hear that maybe another human being in this country misses hockey like I do.

I'd go with everybody else--where you want to work should drive your decision more than anything else. They are both good schools.

Acceptances / Re: In at NYLS
« on: February 05, 2005, 06:52:08 PM »
The cost is a bit offputting. I had been pretty sure I wouldn't want to take on the debt burden that NYLS basically guarantees--but the surprising scholarship offer from them does change things a bit. Of course, I've still got 5 more to hear back from so I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Do you think NYLS gives out these scholarships with the idea that a 3.2 will be difficult to maintain? I'd be curious to see the statistics of how many people offered these scholarships actually keep them through all 3 years.

Wait List / Re: Well it finally came....
« on: February 05, 2005, 04:44:53 PM »
I don't think its a rejection. They want to see how many higher numbered people they can get first. If they don't get as many as they think they will, then you get the shot.

I think I'm headed for the waitlist/deferral category too. I'm retaking the LSAT next Saturday in an attempt to boost my profile.

Just got my letter as well. In with $20K (Dean's Scholar program). I think it requires keeping a 3.2 GPA to keep the money.

Their marketing materials are KILLING me.

Denials / Re: Northeastern

Sorry to hear it...good luck with your other schools.

Well, I took another one today and got a 171.

The whole time when I was studying before the October exam, I felt like I understood the concepts really well but it just wasn't translating to the test.

I don't know why exactly it would play out differently now. I just told myself I wouldn't worry about it anymore and I think I have a totally different attitude towards the whole exam.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Another LR question
« on: February 03, 2005, 12:23:45 PM »
The problem only gives you two options to work from: either it is popular with the faculty OR it is popular with the students--it will not be both. That is the last line of the stimulus.

E tells you it is popular with the faculty. It is therefore UNpopular with the students ----> therefore, adopt a new policy.

I was really overtired on the actual exam. I was running late the morning of, didn't stop to get coffee (which is a really big mistake for a caffeine-addict like me), and just generally felt exhausted. Reading comp was the first section on my exam--I couldn't focus, missed about 10 questions in a section I usually aced. I woke up after that and did ok throughout the rest, but the damage was already done.
