Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Pls help! Chances for top 20?

Also: DC is the most popular location for the LSAT. More tests are given there, and more review courses are taught there than anywhere else, due largely to the high population of interns/staffers and 20-somethings who flock to the city after undergrad. It really isnt indicative of testing trends nationwide. Not sure about the location guarentee. I knew someone who couldnt get into a DC site and had to drive to Delaware to take it.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: IU-Bloomington, W&L, or Boston U

assuming good grades and class rank at all mentioned schools: BU roughly equals WandL, both being slightly better than IU. Obviously IU will do more for you in the midwest, W and L in the DC/VA region, and BU in the Boston/NYC region. None are all that "national" but doing well at any should give you some options in the larger regions where the schools are located. I am from the DC/Northern VA area, and W and L isnt as talked about up here as much as GW, GULC, etc, but I have met some lawyers from there.

Um, again: peer assessment and lawyer/judge assesment are two separate things. "Peer" meaning other law schools.

You won't do any extra work first year. Typically you do 1st year entirely law, 2nd year entirely biz, then 2 more years with a mixture of the two.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Vanderbilt VS Wake Forest

You are correct. Although Wake is a fine school, Vandy should be your goal if picking between the two. Also consider Emory for mid-south placement.

Those numbers make you more than competitive for Vandy ED. Plus, those #s should get you $$ and an early acceptance from Wake if  you get your App in early. I had mine in by october for Wake and Emory and had heard back positively from both by the first week in December, and my numbers are not as good as yours. If I were you I would apply to Vandy ED and Wake and Emory regular (but get your app in early). You should have at least two acceptances before Christmas, and maybe three.

Could be wrong but isnt peer assesment given by profs at other law schools, while there is a separate ranking for lawyer/judge opinion. Both are interesting in my opinion.

I missed it yes, but it was not clear that you were referring to yourself.

True, you haven't been rejected yet, nor have you been accepted, which, I believe, is the OP's goal here.

There is a different board for ethnic slurs.

Dont call me honky.
And I didn't say it isnt possible, I just said "good luck" implying acceptance isnt likely, as your case confirms, since you were not accepted.

Yeah but not that much. Although they did take someone from this board with a 160 this year, that is the definite extreme exception, not at all the rule.
