Law School Admissions / Re: What's the deal with Baff?

Maybe because he was aiming for Tier 1 (BC) and end up at Tier 4 and you know how the XOXO people are.  Maybe it's something else.  I wondery why he didn't go to Stetson.

I graduated Michigan w/honors and bombed my LSAT, so now I am going to TOURO

Define bombed?  140s?  Why didn't you retake the LSAT and was Touro the best school you can get into with a honors Michigan degree?

FLorida Coastal isnt that bad... it doesnt deserve to be in this grouping. If you really wanted to include a FL school it should have been Barry

That's what I thought.  Isn't Florida Coastal much more respected than Barry University?

Wrong again.  Tampa is considered South Florida.

Ever heard of the Tampa-based University of South Florida?  www.usf.edu

By clicking at the link below, looking at the picture, would you agree that a reasonable person would say that Tampa is located more in Central Florida than in South Florida? 

Just because Tampa has a university called University of South Florida, doesn't mean that Tampa MUST be located in South Florida.

  They live in a very nice community 5 miles outside of Tampa (South Florida).

Tampa is so Central Florida.  South Florida would be places such as Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and West Palm Beach.

My parents just bought one for an investment property. 

I guess the descripancy is that FL is a huge state.  The housing cost might be very different among South FL, Central FL, and North FL.

4,000 sq foot house for $300k
Loving Florida,

Ruskie

Housing cost in FL is not that cheap.  It might not be as expensive as NY or CA, but it's not as cheap as one thinks, especially in the last 3 years.   I am not so sure that $60K in FL = 100K in bigger market.

Are trial program for peoplw who can't get in as regular admission?



It is for people who the school feels would be successful in law school, but their LSAT scores are lower than the school average...so they put us in a trial program and make us prove that we can handle it. Each program has its own guidelines. The program that I was in required us to take two second year law classes online, over a two month period. To gain admission we need to maintain a certain GPA. However, the only thing that counts towards the GPA is the final in each class. It is rough, and a lot rides on how you do on the final, but it is worth it.

You have to prove yourself to get admission? Don't all the materials (application, LSAT, trascript, PS, etc.) that you submitted proved enough?   Please tell me you don't have to pay for it and that you get credit for it!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Renting out a Room

Seems like he has some good references.  It might be fun to have an extra friend in a new location, but, just make sure that he is not dependant of you for things such as transportation, etc.

If you have an empty room, an opprotunity to help out a good kid, and earn some money at the same time with some potential of having an extra friend, definately worth considering!

I have read several chapters of E&E's Contract and they all seem common sense.  Offer, consideration, acceptance, bilateral, unilateral contracts, etc... oh.. com'on..didn't we learn those in some cheesy class at grade school?
