Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAC Biased
« on: July 07, 2005, 04:00:12 PM »
Research shows that this has not always been the case, as in 2000, with a disclosed monday test date (though apparently it was not considered an observer date, but was the regular date, nonetheless an observer would obviously enroll in it):

Furthermore, I assure you there is a reason behind this and it is not anti-semetic. It may, perhaps, be due to reoccuring future test questions (though of course I don't work for LSAC and can't say for sure).

Moreover, it just doesn't constitute anti-semitism. That answer grid does little to nothing to help you. It would be anti-semitic if they chose not to offer a sabbath observer test at all.

Congrats, it's a great school!  ;D

Bi-sexual makes you fun at a party, but I don't think a URM :)

I dunno. I always thought it was some sort of a factor since LSAC asks you about it. Meh. I don't really care. I don't think I needed it to get in where I wanted to. :P

My stats got me a full ride at Seton Hall, and I'm only mediocre (tho I guess I was quasi URM because I'm bisexual, I don't think that would make a huge difference though). I am a Jersey resident, don't know if that really made a difference.

There's no renters insurance in my case, and a $250 refundable security deposit.  


I don't think that's quite what was meant. Renter's insurance isn't from the person you rent from. It's something you go to an insurance company and seek yourself. It's fairly inexpensive as well, I recommend seeing if your car insurance company does it. In my case, getting renters insurance for $25k ended up being only 15 dollars a year extra because of the discount we got for having multiple policies.

I'll second including renter's insurance- it's probably one of the most important things to get. The last thing you need is a fire to wipe your place out in the middle of 1L and be screwed for replacing it!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: My first semester schedule

You people are so lucky! Temple gives us our schedules Aug 22nd, the day before class starts. -_-

If you go to Rutgers-Camden, you don't have to live in Camden. There are very nice towns right nearby. I've heard that the law campus itself is pretty safe.

Anywhere along the new River Line light rail, in fact. I know all the apartment complexes in the area as I just moved into one in Bordentown which is just a bit north, so if anyone is looking and needs help, send me a message!

Law School Admissions / Re: What is LSDAS ???

So when i sign up for this service i can apply to any law school through their website?
Not any, but most. The school chooses whether or not they do the apps through them. Out of the 6 I applied to, 5 used it though, and from my research many of the other schools do choose to as well.

Definitely.  I am in Southern NJ myself.  Maybe I'll see you fighting traffic on the Ben Franklin bridge.

No way! :P I'm in Bordentown, and since they built the river line light rail, I'm taking the train... I hate to drive, no less in the city! It'll take a little longer, but at least I can get some reading done on the train. -_-
