Incoming 1Ls / Going to LS part time
« on: June 22, 2006, 09:36:24 PM »
I read one of the disadvantages of being a part time student is that there are not many elective to pick from for the 2L or 3L years. Are most of you considering going to LS part time?

Were you offered any scholarships? If you are in the JD/PhD program, is it tough, easy, etc.?


Choosing the Right Law School / UM vs Nova

Which is better for:

1. Class size?

2. Grading Scale?

3. Professors teaching style?

4. Employment opportunities?

5. Competition from classmates?


I asked one of my professors for a LOR. She wrote me one and sent it to LSDAS. I waived my rights, so I can't see the actual letter. After I graduated from college, I asked her for law school admissions advice. I did not do well on the LSAT, and she was my pre law advisor. She told me that I could not "stomach law school" ( I guess because I was quiet in class and patient. I do not want to be in the court room). Do I cancel her LOR and ask someone else (an employer or another professor) to send in another one? How many letters can one send to LSAC?

I am a non traditional prospective law student. I am a teacher, and I am interested in international and labor law. As an undergraduate student, I was a secretary for my college's chapter of NOW, volunteered for a presidential campaign and governor's campaign, tutored elementary kids, and an assistant Girl Scout troop leader. I interned for a worker's rights organization, and have a Masters degree. I CAN NOT afford to quit my job (I do not come from money). Is anyone considering working while attending law school?
