Law School Applications / Re: ABA-LSAC Official Guide Up...

Well I'm getting less than 10% chances for a school I got into and a school I'm still waiting on. I think they overcorrected (the last version of this made it appear WAY too easy to get in).

What worries people about those schools (at least myself a little) is that they don't publish the numbers that ABA schools do.
I mean, I've never seen on the websites employment at grad/employment at 6mo. after grad; median starting salary; bar passage rates; average entering GPA/LSAT.
That being said 21k$ a year for tuition is something I'm not looking forward to for my ABA school.

Also, I totally do not think its neccesarry to read any kind of book unless you plan on going to a top 14 or have marginal numbers. Then strategy becomes more important. But the process itself is really pretty self-explanatory. I mean each app tells you what to do :P

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Where is Tulane's letter?!?

I've been battling Tulane for months. I was complete 12/1, 164/2.95. They said they'd try to postmark everything by 4/1 but that didnt work out.

BUT I think they're fall to T2 in the USNEWS rankings might have changed their yield so maybe they're holding? Also on they're website they have posted how many "offers of admission" they've sent this year. Seems odd that they have the table done but so many applicants left without an answer.

While they might in a very boderline case, in 95% of applications they probably aren't even looked at. This is just my feeling from this year in admissions. Adcomms seem primarily motivated by numbers, I think a lot of folks (especially younger ones like me) get caught up in a year WE in a law office being a secretary when this stuff really doesn't matter.

Then again-- 10 years-- IF its impressive might look nice. But my feeling is that 10 years of GREAT WE isn't as good as a 3 point improvement on the LSAT.

Ok, I can clarify what "reputable" means, what I should have said was relatively prestigious -- you may get a job but not the same ones UT grads will. I realize that Devry grads get jobs but they dont become CEOs. Sorry bout the sloppy language first time through.

You're right, basically. But try going into a reputable company and applying for an accounting, or management job or someother above-minimum-wage-job with a degree from Devry or U. of Phoenix.

TSU is definately the Devry of law schools.

Heh, I suppose I gave the wrong impression--not crossing the Mason-Dixon or anything. I'm moving from southern Texas to nothern Texas. Still a good 5-6 hour drive. -- Most likely to Baylor (Waco, Texas) in any case.

Unless I get a huge admit + $$ from SMU.

This is why you must have 1 friend with a pickup, renting/buying a trailer is a great way.

Welp-- have ya? I've been complete at both since 12/1. Thats a rocking 4+ months now. (Deferred ED at SMU)

I'll be buying a small trailer, hitching it to my Jeep and heading north. ;) Can't wait.
