Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Legitimate Cooley question
« on: April 25, 2005, 05:00:59 AM »
The only people I have ever heard bash Cooley are students applying to law school or people in other law schools. I'm sure there are tons of attorneys out there that hate on it to, but of all the ones I have talked to, they all say mostly good things about it. Sounds like a great fit for you.

Where should I go next fall? / My interesting situation
« on: April 25, 2005, 03:43:06 AM »
I have planned on attending law school since my Freshmen year in college. However, I always wanted to work for a few years prior to that. To make a long story short, I changed my mind about this in March and started getting everything together. I found that some schools would accept a June lsat for fall 05 admission so I applied to Detroit Mercy, Toledo, Dayton, Cooley, and Florida Coastal.

First I would like to know of any stories you have ever heard about people doing this. I have a hard time believing a school would give me a slot when they have kids waiting that applied in October and obviously were more prepared than me.

My Lsat score will be anywhere from a 155-163. My practices have been ERATIC, but progressing nicely. That coupled with my 2.8 from Michigan is how I arrived at this plan:

If I get a 159 or higher, I will hold off and apply to better schools in the fall like a normal person. Then I will take a year off and it will be worth it.

If my score is on the lower end and I get admitted to one of those schools, I will probably attend in the fall and plan on staying for three years. I guess I would entertain the option of transfering, but I feel like if I decide to go it should be a decision based off of being there for 3 years.

Any input?

Classy move on my part :)

Law School Applications / Can I study abroad in law school?

One thing I missed out on in undergrad was going abroad internationally. Do any law schools provide opportunities for travel? It would definitely factor into my eventual school choice.
