Capital / Re: Anyone accepted for Fall 2005

Anything specific you'd like to know?
There is a posted summer reading list for entering students on CULSnet. Do you think it would be worthwhile to read any of these selections and/or cases over the summer, or a waste of precious free time?

U of Toledo / Re: Any thoughts on Toledo?

The school is nice & the on campus environment is okay (I know a 1L attending now), but the city is not a very nice place to live.  It is a great place for undergrad.  If you want to stay in Toledo after graduation you'll find a job, but it is very hard to get a job outside of Toledo (even in Columbus and Cincy where the job markets and quality of living are better).  My friend worked in Toledo for a while, but when he wanted leave the Toledo area he could not find decent employment.  From what I hear that is not an isolated example.  Also, I don't mean to offend anyone attending UT, T2 is great and I'm sure they can enter the bottom 100 again, but it won't improve betond that.

Yeah... The school's dropped in its rankings (which aren't ever likely to increase significantly) and it is in a really crappy city.  My friend graduated from Toledo law, and instead of practicin law he is now a highschool Spanish teacher.  If you have options, don't go.

Current Law Students / Re: Should I take an Logic course? Yes or No?
« on: April 02, 2005, 08:51:22 AM »
I took Intro. to Logic & Critical Thinking (which sound like the equivalents of your courses).  I believe that Logic was more relevant to the LSAT, altough everything I learned in Critical Thinking was covered, to some extent, in Logic.  If you're able to I would recommend taking both, but if not Logic would be your best bet.  The problems solved in a reasining/thinking course are not as applicable to the logic games.  Logic will help you to hone the basic skills that allow you to increase your speed in the Games.  I wish I could've taken these courses closer to the test date b/c they'd have help (I took both over 2 years before the LSAT).
At my school, the course was just listed as "logic" or "elementary logic."  But if you read the course description, it would mention symbolic logic in the description.  So look for that.  The course will probably be offered in the Philosophy department.

At my university, they also offer a course entitled "Practical Reasoning," which is also a logic course, but it's different from the symbolic logic - sort of prior to symbolic logic logic - they only do a little of symbolic logic towards the end. However, in that course there's a lot of problem solving, very much like the ones on the logic part of the LSAT.  I never took that course, but people who have, told me that it was extremely helpful in preparing for the LSAT.  So keep an eye out for something like that at your school too.

Thanks for the info.  So far I haven't heard anything negative about Columbus job prospects.  My cousin just graduated from OSU Law last year, and she told me that Capital grads are highly sought after at her firm and many others.  She said that in Columbus OSU and Capital grads are roughly on the same playing field, the difference in the school's names really only applies when you leave the region.  I would say that Grandview and German Village are two good places to look.  German Village (just South of downtown) is closer, but Grandview is probably a little cheaper and its not far (North of the school).  Luckily I won't have to look for a place to live b/c I'll be able to move in w/ a friend who lives there.

Is anyone planning on going to scholars day on April 16? I got an invite in the mail and I'm thinking about going.  I'm almost positive that'll I'll be going to Capital (otherwise Cleveland State), and I still haven't ben to the school. I'm also interesting in hearing comments from others who have visited!

The only school that I know anything about is Cooley.  I know a lawyer who graduated from there and has made herself a comfortable career in OH, so wherever you go, if you do well you'll get a good job, & if you do well @ your 1st job it won't matter where u went to law school. I'm not crazy about the idea of transferring, it seems like it would be a huge hassle and I'm sure that as 1L's we'll have plenty on or minds! I also got int MSU, Cleveland-Marshall, & Thomas Jefferson.  Capital gave me $11k per yr though, so I'm really thinking about it.  I just wish that the rest of the schools that I've applied to would give me an answer... ::)
