Law School Admissions / Re: app fee waiver seton hall

Maybe I wasn't the only one whose app they lost and their yield went down.  :P

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.  ;)

No sweat. They consider whatever you have sent in. They don't care about having all your grades, so long as you will graduate before the semester begins.

Well, the fact that they feel the need for three days of orientation may be indicitive of how hard they feel it is for 1L's.... though 150 pages of prep for an orientation does seem somewhat extreme. Is it put together by them or book selections or what?

I don't think you're going to find a store that sells clothes off the rack that will fit right. If I were in your situation, I would consider shopping at places like Nordstrom, Banana Republic, etc. that offer alterations or finding a good local seamstress. My friend is very tall with very long arms and has to have almost all of her clothes altered. It isn't very expensive, probably less than you would expect, and the clothes fit her perfectly.


This is true... I do some of my own alterations since I'm kind of between inseams on pants (regular pants are too short, tall pants are too long) but I'm not comfortable enough with my sewing to do my own work on tops. I'm going to have to start seriously looking into finding a good seamstress or shopping a little higher end (I think the seamstress will come first! ;))
