are there any hoosiers here (or people who've moved to indiana) who've gone thru the icleo program in their pursuits of law school? i'm wondering if that's a plausible option for me right now. personally speaking, i think it would be a good starting point for me so i'm not totally surprised on my first day of classes and wouldn't suffer any kind of life altering trauma. lol!

either or...any thoughts?

stick it out, forum, especially if it's your first sememster. if it's your second? maybe you can make it up over the summer and at least get back into the top 40-50%! that way you'd be ready to take on the fall and get back up into that upper 15-25% by the time the summer associate positions start poppin' up. ;)

good luck to you!! ;D

if it comes up? remind them of why you want to be a part of their incoming class and don't just give'em what you think they wanna hear. it seems that this is their way of trying to get to know you because they WANT to get to know the person they're letting in which i wish more law schools would do! what an awesome opportunity for you! :)  good luck w/your interview! ;D

it comes w/the territory, bugg. lol ;) no worries about the rank...i meannn...rantings. (lol!) ;D my advice to you? call the school yourself and talk to someone there and ask them about the #s published along with other things. for example, i was thinking that i wanted to go to NWern, right? but when i went to a law school forum? i was so ready to run far far FAR away from that school! i was even wishing they weren't in chicago of all places! that's my home housing a school like that! lol and besides, they'll be glad you talked to them and not just went based on what some magazine said.

good luck bugg. ;D

i wanted to know what school you're at now, but i'm not sure i want to drudge up anymore bad feelings for ya. but i do have some light at the end of your tunnel! depending on which state you're in and which firms you're looking at, what a lot of them look at are really your grades and your activities and what you tried to 'accomplish' so-to-speak in law school.

i worked for a big national firm here in phx a year ago and i asked one of the recruiters what they looked for in law students when they were hiring for either summer or perm positions. she said the main thing she looked at were grades, then activities (i.e. law review, moot court, etc.), then the school you went to although she truthfully told me they do look at rankings. but when i left in the summer (i was only doing a paid internship in a policy group w/in the firm), one of the summer clerks they had just hired was from a T4 on the east coast. also i was just looking at a firm in chicago's web site and i was seeing a lot of people from a regional T4 school in a big firm. so i hope this makes you feel better! :)


6 know? that doesn't sound bad at all. lol!!

i guess it just boils down to who teaches what and can make it understandable and interesting for ya. :)

*thanks dr. rose. ;) *

i totally agree w/afterdark. there are tons of hoops to jump thru if you didn't go to an ABA school and if you're even remotely thinking about leaving AL after a while, i'd reconsider my options. for example, let's say that your numbers (i wish i had your GPA btw! :) ) got you in at cooley, john marshall, mercer, and we'll say whittier just to put you out on the west coast.

i'm thinking w/your stats, you could probably get into any one of these schools, do well your first year, and then if you were wanting to, transfer into a 'better' school that could at least get you in the door of a regional firm (if that's what you'd ultimately want to do, of course). this way the only hoops you have to jump thru are the ones to transfer if you wanted to. :)

hope that helps! :)

no offense to your obviously traumatizing situation? but being a science major and all garners the same kind of 'you have to be on the ball' attitude from the teachers...and they don't sound as 'nice' as your ls prof did. so i'm sorry to say that i can't send the sympathies your way. if you think about it, if it wasn't for us science majors (bio, chem, phys, engineering) 'suffering' as well? we wouldn't have a lotta the things we have today. so although i know and understand and beyond appreciate what happened to you (trust me!), look at it this least you don't go thru this every day in class! :)

and if you've ever taken organic chem or organometallics? i'd be willing to bet that your class is somewhat easier. lol ;)

hi solver...

this is so cool of you to do to try and stop the likes of 'right winger' and 'george bush, jr.' (correct?). i wish this was all it took though and that this person (who i believe to be one in the same) didn't have the right to spew his/her nonsense across this board that's supposed to be helping others. i'm not sure how you've felt about me going up against them, but i've been brought up w/the convention that if the problem's never 'addressed', then it either won't get better nor be eradicated. maybe that's my harsh midwestern upbringing, lol, but knowledge will hopefully triumph over ignorance in the end of all things.

once again, thanks for trying. much continued success to you in your pursuit of law school! :)
