Im in this too because my lsat sucked and my freshmen and sophomore years in undergrad were terrible. I think 9 credits is a little rediculous, but Ill do it and enjoy it. Im a little worried about it hurting my performance. My best semesters in college were when I really pushed myself and buckled down. It forced me to manage my time well. Now I can totally see myself studying all day Friday (no class probably) and Sunday and thinking that is enough to justify me driving to ann arbor on saturday for football games and to relive the glory days with some 5th year friends.

*&^% Im even going to Vegas the weekend between orientation and classes. I emailed some professors and they actually saw no problem with me doing this and one in fact encouraged it!

Im thinking also that second semester when we take the classes that we miss 1st, they will be really small and filled with only transitional students. Who knows, that may help the curve in those 2 classes.

Count me in.

Just graduated from Umich. My hometown is Birmingham, Mi.

I went and spoke with some people about transfering to Wayne from Toledo. I've decided against it. I saw no competitive advantage I could gain from doing so. Toledo grads have little trouble getting into Detroit firms and then further have all of Ohio to look at also.

Just wanted to add that MSU's bar passage rate was pretty disappointing last year: 68% compared to Wayne's 83%

According to the new ABA data that was posted last week at


State ave.=73%

It might just be a one-year fluke but that low bar passage number actually scared me away from applying there this year...

And Toledo is higher than all of the above...

Don't live in a Dan's House or at 603 Hoover. (The landlords SUCK!)

That is a great point. Are employment opportunities in Detroit pretty vast? What kind of grades do you need to get in to a firm there? Toldeo has a much larger legal community than one would think, but Im getting the hell out of this crappy state upon graduation unless someone wants to as Sheed Wallace says, "CUT THE CHECK."

Id like to hear people's thoughts on Toledo vs. Wayne. I think I could transfer to Wayne from Toledo without a problem and I am considering it. Tuition would be about the same, but if I went to Wayne I could live at home and save some money. Toledo was in the second tier after Wayne fell out, but they are pretty comparable....I think. It appears that Toledo places in Michigan better than Wayne places in Ohio, but Im basing that on nothing very substantive. If true, it probably has a lot (or everything) to do with toledo offering in state tuition to Michigan counties. The faculty at Toledo so far has been amazing and Im doing fairly well so Im not sure if it would be worth transfering just to save 15k over 2 years, but I will continue to play with the thought.


Having a car in AA is absolutely unnecessary. I was there four years and never needed one. If you are in law school, it is even less necessary. Plus there is nowhere to park if you live in their housing.
