Oh Canada! / Summer jobs for Canadians at American law schools?
« on: April 18, 2006, 12:43:50 PM »
I'll be attending NYU thus Fall and was wondering if it is possible to work as a summer associate in NY during my summers or will I have to go back to Canada to work. I was thinking maybe OPT but I've already used OPT after getting my MA and I know you can on.ly reapply for OTP if you are pursuing a "higher" degree.

What makes you think yes?

Is that true? The later you fill out your financial aid statement the worst your package will be?
If that is the case then I am f-ing retarded. (Filled it out last week).

I totally forgot about having to fill out that online form until about a week ago and then quickly filled it in. Will this seriously disadvantage the amount of money I may be offered (not that I'm expecting much). Also, I applied for the Furman and havn't heard back. Could this be a reason?

I actually picked up PLSII because I'll really need as much spare time next year as I can get. I'm in a band that I don't want to leave in order to study law.

SLS: where do you go to school?

I really loved the parts where he did legal analysis; like on that screwed up essay question and then with the Barry Bonds home run. Funny how that book can simultaneously make you skeptical about law school but excited to study law itself.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT PREPARATION
« on: February 24, 2006, 05:38:33 PM »
Alright so I'm currently just a sophomore, but like everybody else I want to start prepping for the LSAT early.  Do you think I should start doing some practice tests and maybe read the bibles this summer?  How do you think I should plan my preparation?  I will probably take the test in June 07 or whatever the next test would be after that.  Any thoughts are appreciated.

It depends on how self-motivated you are. IF you have difficuty sticking to a strict study schedule I recommend doing a prep course. If you can do it on your own I would buy a book or two with strategy advise and read those. I would also buy as many real LSATs as you can. Break some of them up into sections so that you can practice each individually. But you should also do at least 1 or 2 full tests a week to chart your progress and apply the things you learned in the books.

But if you want to score like a f-ing champ, hire me to tutor you.

Planet Law School II, no question. Although take the uber-critical stuff with a grain of salt.
