This Las Palmas thing is a big threat to the US. Even bigger than those darn terrorist. Imagine the setback we'll experience if the entire eastern US was knocked out? New York, Miami, Boston, etc. etc. Itís unimaginable. (We could loose Harvard, Yale and soo many other good law schools in one fair swoop)
I propose we take some preemptive action and nuke this Las Palmas place before we are ruined.
if half a volcano collapsing into the ocean would sink the eastern seabord, what do you think nuking it would do? i mean, you could make the argument that if it's going to happen, let's evacuate and make it happen on our terms... but an earthquake/volcanic activity has to happen just the right way for a tsunami to actually happen... like if you have a tub of water... if you swing it real fast or real slow, no water will overflow... but if you move it within the right speed interval, it will overthow... large seismic activity does not guarantee a tsunami but tsunamis are caused by large seismic actvity..

1st of all I am not liberal - that is just what ultra conservatives call people who don't share their extremist views.
2ndly, I absolutely could have gotten in to Pepperdine if I had applied - I have decent numbers and many extras - such as WE, paying my own way through school, veteran of the USAF, and an ivy league undergrad degree.
3rdly, I am not attacking Pepperdine - merely stating a fact about it. I am not an atheist, but that does NOT mean I want religious dogma crammed down my throat at Law school. I believe in a separation of church and state like many of our founding fathers. But call me crazy for that.
Lastly, just because you disagree with someone's viewpoint doesn't mean you can call them all sorts of names that are untrue. Didn't they teach you that at church?
I tend to agree with this... I don't care what anyone's personal beliefs are... but it seems that religion should really have nothing to do with the practice of law...

this is the funniest thread... no one can do anything with their undergrad majors...
i think law schools purposely stress only those UG majors that will leave students with no other option but to pursue law... think of it as a tacit early decision strategy...

yeah, don't take "classes to prepare for law school." take a traditional major like english, history, economics, political science, physics, whatever floats your boat. and to piggy back on that, I would stay away from crim justice, political science, things that are common. If I had it to do over again I might not ahve majored in history, though I don't know what else I would have majored in.
majoring in something in the sciences, or philosophy or english would be good. law schools are looking for people with majors that aren't a dime a dozen and that also require critical thinking. only take a couple of classes as electives that relate to law. for instance, i'm majoring in environmental science, but i've taken a class on "the american judicial system," and i'm taking "privacy law" and "civil liberties" next semester just to see what i'm interested in.
I'm sorry but this kind of advice is BUNK... take virtually any demanding major in science or liberal arts, work hard, do well and you should be fine!!! history and polisci are classic "pre-law" (to use the OP's terms) concentrations for a reason!... as a law school applicant, you should set yourself apart in terms of your personal statement, your letters of recommendation, your work experience, your extracurriculars, your volunteering, and last but CERTAINLY not least your GPA and LSAT... your actual major is not where you want to be different for different's sake... any "hard" natural science or liberal arts program is appropriate... if you find that you love polisci or history... go for it! they are great preparatory backgrounds for law... pls, do NOT avoid history or polisci because you think they won't differentiate you... that would be robbing you of a potentially valuable undergraduate experience, if in fact, you would have found either interesting/worthwhile... i will admit that i take personal exception to this kind of thinking because i am a history major but more so because i think history is wonderful and i would hate to think that someone who would feel the same way would decide not to pursue a degree in history for fear of being too "ordinary"... find something you are interested in, and do well in it!

Anyone else find researching law schools (read: posting on message board) to be an all too convenient excuse to not do actual school work? Wouldn't it be ironic if researching law school (read: playing Snood and watching TV while hitting refresh on LSD) ended up diminishing my chance of getting into law school?
I'm sure I'm not the only one using LSD to escape actual work

It's not a real problem.
The most important thing is not what kind of people use LSN, but what kind of application results those people show, and the amount. On LSN, there are a lot of cases of rejection as well as acception. You can just put those "accepted" together or those "rejected" bu a certain school together (using the function provided by LSN) and there is a clear trend in the index number. In most cases, we will be able to see the "presumptive accepted" line, the "presumptinve rejected" line.
This is good enough and the best indicator we are able to get unless we talk to an adcom member directly. And in showing this, LSN does provide enough people both rejected and accepted for many schools. In this case, whether these people are special or not is not that important, unless we find a common soft factor among those listed on the LSN that will affect admission decisions significantly.
that's what i said!

is this question from an "old" exam different somehow from questions from more recent exams? if so, can you explain how? thanks in advance.

whatever they want from you...
unofficial transcript, personal statement, resume... these are all classics... anything else you think will give them better insight into you
