I was going to ask a couple of my profs from last semester soon.  I heard do it far enough before exams so they have time.  I have honestly been putting it off out of anxiety.

My school went down...for the second year in a row... I feel like I'm on a sinking ship

Pasted below is part of an e-mail I received from LSAC:

Recently, repeated attempts have been made to log in to your LSAC online account
incorrectly.  Although these attempts were unsuccessful, your account has been
locked for your protection.  Please contact LSAC technical support at

I haven't even looked at LSAC in over a year at least.  Although I will be needing my accout for transfer applications this summer.  Anyone have any idea who would attempt to log in, or is it a simple mistake & I am a mildly paranoid law student?

I also missed the LSAT cutoff b/c I decided to go to law school during the middle of my senior year.  I took a year off and worked as a paralegal.  It really was the best thing I could have done.  I feel more mature than many of the straight from UG ppl.  I have a great resume.  I got a great summer externship b/c I have experience.  I have atty connections.  With a decent gpa from a good UG it would be a really bad idea to waste 3 years in a non accredited school (IMHO).  Check out the pre-law side on LSAT info.

I have two friends at GULC. One of them worked for a bankruptcy boutique over the summer. The other worked w/ me for a federal judge.

how did you like working for a fed judge?  that is what i will be doing this summer.

The general advice is to go to whichever school you would choose if transfering is not an option (as long as they are similarly ranked, ect).  Transferring is hard & not gauranteed, so you want a school you will be content graduating from.

Good luck.

Thanks DB
Let me know if you like it.  I am feeling a little fuzzy on some of the issues in that class.

Thanks!  We are using a brand new casebook w/ no canned briefs keyed to it yet.  The reading is dense (lots of stats) & the Prof. is not as clear as I had hoped.  I just bought the book you mentioned & I am hoping it helps.
