how easy is this to do? i don't think the polisci department at my undergrad had any JD's teaching, and we had 2 separate polisci departments. i know there's always a pre-law advisor at schools, but do most universities really want a JD teaching undergrad classes on legal topics?

I didn't go to a great undergrad, but we had some adjunct professors who were lawyers.  I took business law and the prof was a lawyer.  I had another prof who taught bus law 2, he was really in the business dept but he was going to law school at night.  But that wasn't really a good school, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.

There's always the option of teaching pre-law in undergrad schools.  The job title prestige may not be there, but if you want to teach, it'll be there.

I just moved in the beginning of July.  Since then, every door(closet and room) has broken, a window just broke last night, the kitchen light is broken, the oven doesn't work and 2 of the stove burners don't work.  I've gotten to the point where I just expect it now.  But I've got a roof over my head, so I can't complain too much.

Anyone planning on living in Radnor House?  I just moved this weekend and started checking out the area. I love it here.

Do you guys know where you're living yet?

My parents said they'd help me pay to live as long as I wasn't living at home....But it isn't cheap, so I don't know what I'll be doing.  They only live about 45 minutes away, but in the morning rush it turns into 2 hours.

I'm 3.3/160, no scholarship.  when I asked, they said you can't apply for any now.  it's $28K per year, estimated $44K if you live on your own. 

WL...and it stinks.

I still haven't heard....what's your gpa/lsat?

I applied in March and received my acceptance 4/8.  160/3.3, however I went to a Catholic high school (though I'm not positive that application asked, but if so, that could have helped me).  When I went to get a tour last week, I heard the admissions woman on the phone explaining the wait list.  Call and ask.
