all the bad comments are pretty much true. but, when you do the comparative-suckiness test, you see that LA isn't that bad. we have the best mexican food in the world, best weather, great beaches, and very attractive people. sure, people are superficial here and there's too damned many of them and our public transport f**king sucks. but only a few other places in the U.S. are as good or better than LA... in my humble calisupremecist opinion
the same sh*t happened to me too. went to a UC, out for 2.5 years. didn't know ANY of my profs. i had two TA's gladly volunteer (the prof can also sign those to add more cred) and 1 prof who didn't even know me. just ask, and you shall receive. granted you might feel like a giant D I L D O for asking those who deny you, but you'll get at least one, and that's all you need. GOOD LUCK!!
im from cali and visited Tulane. NOLA is quite a boring town. i walked over the whole city in about a day. everything is slow, and there is nothing to do but eat and get drunk.
but yes, the school is in a great area. the garden district is pretty safe. i felt comfortable walking around by myself (and i'm a little 5 ft tall girl) at night.
really, visit both schools. see if you can dig it for 3 years.
i doubt i could dig nola for that long.
i remember this one! it seemed to hard until i drew it out as a circle with the little stops on it. helps you visualize better, esp. on one of the questions about the shortest/least stops. when you draw it out you'll laugh at how easy it is.
see, in reference to the last q posted on here, if you have it drawn out as a circle, you would easily see that you could connect within the circle.
one doesn't need to keep to oneself during and before the test. i talked to and was nice to everyone and even shared my jumbo chocolate bar with a few people. (it was my birthday though). tried to mellow myself out by mellowing out others.
competition can bring on such a cheezy atmosphere.
had to put it in the front of the room, in a big pile of stuff (like 50 bags) that were all unattended. i recommend putting your purse in a backpack (harder for people to access without looking suspicious, if you bring anything valuable like credit card or money) along with a powerbar, chocolate bar, water, and other accoutrements like a turned off phone and extra sweater or jacket.
don't drink too much coffee before you get in either!!
and don't mind the 10-15 people who give up and walk off during the middle of the test. (they made me *very* nervous and intimidated!!)
take chocolate as a snack. eat something well balanced for breakfast, like eggs and toast and fruit. don't drink too much coffee, if any.
after the LSAT i drank a copious amount of wine, and hit up vegas - it was my birthday,

1. ask what percentage of law students actually graduate!!! only 1 in 3 graduate where I visited. (let's just say it's a school ranked #59)
2. meet with a career planner and ask how likely/what you need to do for your chosen area of law. i became very disillusioned when i found out for sports/entertainment law that i would have to do a couple years worth of lowly/un-paid internships in entertainment before i could proceed. same with international law too - yrs of domestic practicing first.
3. can you live off of the calculated budget/funding by yourself realistically, or do you need to live with 1 other, 2 other, or even 3 other people to afford such a situation?
4. ask a student that isn't being paid to tell you about the school. they tend to be pretty honest. i suggest picking on smokers or those eating lunch in a nearby courtyard.
5. sit in on a class, and, if possible, check out a coursebook for a minute.
