So I did not pass. Don't know how cloase I was yet, have to order a copy of my test. I also found out I was the only one of 9 people who requested accomdiations who was denied. I'd like to think if I had more time on the essyas and not had to stop writing 10 mins erly for each question to spell check I would have done better. But I won't know for sure till I get my copy of the exam in a few weeks. So I'm on for feburray ang going to appleal my denial of accomdiations (espially sice there is some school listed on their denial letter I never even went to).

Irrx: Law School Sucks

My reply: bump

TLS Mod feminine hygiene product (Hawkeye): Bumping for no good reason will earn you a time out away from TLS, leaving you only to post on LSD for awhile. Consider this your first warning.

My reply:And the justification for that would be... ?

Frankly, I have little loyalty to TLS, oh powerful godfather wannabe. (read:feminine hygiene product)

TLS is a joke.

They don't like us becuase they know if we start posting on TLS we will be the cool kids and they will go back to being nobody's, we are athreat to thier cyber self esteem

General Board / Re: Psychiatric Disability Right in Law School
« on: October 05, 2009, 09:09:47 AM »
I can tell you this: Many students at my law school with a wide variety of disabilities were permitted special accommodations in testing.  The disabilities ranged from dyslexia and severe ADD to other "unknown" disabilities.  My guess is that those who didn't discuss why they weren't taking exams with the rest of us (they got to take them later in an interview room alone) had anxiety problems or other psychiatric issues. 

If you are concerned about it, make an inquiry with the admissions office anonymously, and they should be able to give you some information.

For those who don't understand how having these issues could cause issues in taking exams, you should look on wikipedia for information about how these illnesses can affect people.


It's natural in a competitive environment like law school to assume people are using disabilities for "gain." The truth is that if you knew what most of these people were going through you wouldn't want to change places with them just to get an additional hour or a special chair or private room for an exam. 

This is so true, if I could give away my deslexia to someone else I would take all my exams with 1/2 LESS time thwen everyone else just to be rid of that. Hell I had to do that on the bar anyway. my desylexia does not come and go on exam day, I have to deal with it everyday if I could take a pill and make it disapear I would in s econd, but there is no such thing so everytime I read wor write anything I have to deal with it.

Thanks for your response.  I am starting to realize I might apply more regionally.  I am willing to take the bar in multiple states, but we will just wait and see what happens.  Any suggestions on NE schools?

I'm from out west, so i don't know much if anything about NE schools. Taking the bar mutiple states can be an issue becuase many states hold it on the same days, sometimes neighboring states have it over 3 days, but most conflict and its only given in Feb and July, so you have to wait six months to take it again.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Ridiculous Tuition?

How the hell do schools like Suffolk, Vermont Law School, and Northeastern get away with charging as much tuition as BC or BU (all around $38,000) when schools with better progams suchs as George Mason, Maryland, and William and Mary are $8,000 cheaper (and even less if one finds a way to finagle in-state residency)?

Because there are far more people who want to go to law school then there are seats available in law school.  Every school in the country, t1 to t4, has far more applicants than they could ever admit. Supply/demand

If you canít get into a national school, then go to school in the region you want to work. Most schools outside the top 25 are very regional. Also going to school where u want to work means you can network, clerk, intern without having to move over the summers, sublet your place, sublet a place in NE town ect. LS is not like UG, a law degree is not that portable, where you take the bar is pretty much where you will stay since you have to wait seven years or take the bar in each state you want to practice in.
