Where should I go next fall? / Re: SHOW ME THE MONEY!!! $$$
« on: April 21, 2004, 02:16:43 PM »
DC or VA

But the bar exam is just cake to me, I work in the education field now and I need a PhD to continue to climb the ladder.  My JD will be equal to a PhD, so I can just go back to working in education after school.

I really like the law so maybe I will get really into it, ya never know.

Damn, I wish I could relocate.  My numbers are just a hair over yours.  I'm just imagining ASL giving me full tuition ride, but instead I'll be going to a non-ABA school.  But I shouldn't complain.  It's here, it's cheap and middle-aged law students to be should take what they can get.

right?   ;D

153 - 3.5

Appalachian School of Law - full tution
Ohio Northern -15k
FL Coastal - 10k
Univ. of DC -4.5K




Yeah being able to re-locate made all the differance - Appalachian is in the middle of nowhere, plus there were several middle aged student there as well (I am 32 myself)

I got one with an unsolicited application blank.  No kidding.  :) It was not a highly placed school, however.   :'(

Yeah I got one to, mine was from Barry University

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Take the money or Move up a tier?
« on: April 01, 2004, 12:02:33 PM »
I am in a similar boat.  I received a scholarship offer from Ohio Northern 15k, Florida Coastal 10k, and Appalachian School of Law full tuition.  I have a couple of schools that I am still waiting to hear from, like the Buffalo.  They offered me a fee wavier if I applied so I am thinking that I should get in.

But when I look at costs, I am leaning more towards Appalachian.  I just canít fathom loading myself with an extra 60 grand in debt for a better school.  Will it really make that much of a difference in 10 years where I went to school?

I am still deciding, I sent in the deposit for Appalachian and have withdrawn my apps at Florida and Ohio.  But I donít know what I am going to do, if a much better school like Buffalo comes along.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Guilt Trip
« on: March 30, 2004, 04:29:17 PM »
Yes actually I took the LSAT with my Dad to support him.  I never thought that I would do ok, It was kinda a joke to me. No studing at all I just showed up.  Ok my score kinda sucked 153, but my Dad made a 138, and he tried so hard.

I had to think about going to law school, I had never even thought about it. I searched long time and have decided to give it a go.  I have a full scholarship to a 4th tier, so it is worth it.

But the guilt...  every time I talk to my Dad about it...  But he seems ok with it all, it is just me feeling bad.  I think that he feels that if he couldn't do it, then at least I am going to try.

153/3.5

Yes I think my numbers are bad. Only because I wanted to get into a T2 school with money.  Now the only money I am looking at comes from T4.  It limited my choices.  My fault really - I never studied for the LSAT, I just took it cold.  That was a very, very unwise choice on my part.  Also my GPA 3.5, had I realized it would count so much later, I would have maybe tried harder.  My grad GPA is 4.0. I only say they are bad numbers for me, had I tried harder I could have done better.
