Yeah, it's really not an option. Most schools go through them exclusively, probably anywhere you'll be applying to at least. Anyway, it makes the application process substantially more managable.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Listen to this bull. My school just sent me 5 reading assingments.« on: July 15, 2005, 03:24:46 PM »
Makotosan said something to the effect of "yeah, maybe they think incoming students really need the help but 150 pages seems like overkill". So no, it wasnt that difficult to get.
I'm an administrator at a very large college webpage. Therefore I must be held to an expert's standard of reasonable care in interpreting message board posts. (oh tort law, how I love thee )

Thanks! I'll need it.

It's not perfect, I know, because the Feb tests aren't available (at least on this page).
Well, I don't know about the rest of the feb tests, but mine was feb 04, and my 88% was a 162. :/

Makotsan: You got a full ride offer from St. John's? That's pretty cool. It must have been hard to turn down (there is a lot of freedom in not having student loan debt).
Yeah, it was hard to turn down. Really, really hard. If my husband's MBA wasn't being paid for by his job, I probably wouldn't have either. Thankfully Temple is on the cheaper end of the whole bunch, and my cost of living is lower staying on this end of New Jersey than up on LI or northern Jersey within a decent train commute.
My parents, however, think that I am insane and dislike my choice. Good thing they don't have a say in it.

I do. I didn't apply to a single reach. I mean even if I got in to a better school I probably would have made the same decision since I knew where they had the exact program I wanted, but still, why not try? I think I did it just so that I didn't get any rejections (well, and I'm cheap). But I could have at least applied to Fordham for the fun of it like I was originally going to.

I would assume anything they assign before orientation would really be to help you know the general essentials of law school, probably composed of things that past students haven't known and have had problems with. I know some schools will assign a book like "Acing your first year of law school" which is 128 pages but an extremely quick read and just covers basic terminology and what to do and not to do in class and on tests. It can't be anything too heavy... at least I can't think of why it would be.

The best time to take it is early enough to take it again if you need to.
