Incoming 1Ls / Paying for Law School, your thoughts?
« on: June 20, 2007, 01:39:50 PM »
How is everyone paying for law school?  Correct me if I'm wrong but most people take out enormous subsidized and unsibsidized loans and postpone working.  Theoretically, this means that the loans will pay rent, food, leisure, etc. Correct?

In addition, do subsidized and unsubsidized federal (or state) loans adequately provide the needed funds or do most students also seek private loans?  Sorry this is so long.

I am seriously considering Texas Tech over Drake and Creighton, what are your thoughts?  It is my understanding that TTU does not place well outside of Texas, maybe because major cities are not within close proximity.  Whereas Drake and Creighton can place students in their respective cities as well as Kansas City and Minneapolis...

Incoming 1Ls / what to do before law school?

Besides working, what is everyone doing to prepare for law school?  I am thinking of getting a legal terminology book and familiarizing myself with new terms.  I am also thinking about physically training my body to deal with the long nights of studying and strenuous requirements.

What does everyone think about La Verne?  It is provisisionally accredited and I am debating possibly going back to the midwest instead of staying in Cali?  After talking to several lawyers about their law school experience one theme stood out.  Unless you go to a T14 nobody cares where you went to law school as long as you an adept and versed lawyer.

I have substantially raised my GPA and am wondering if I can be considered for admission in the same cycle after I have been denied?

I am currently waitlisted at all three schools.  Could someone help me break these schools down in terms of their regional presence and job prospects compared to closer, higher ranked schools?

From my understanding Southwestern is the oldest and most prominent, then its a toss up?

Incoming 1Ls / Creighton Alternate?
« on: May 01, 2007, 11:27:50 PM »
I just recieved a letter from Creighton indicating that if I so choose, can be palced in the alternate waitlist for anyone that drops before Aug 20th.  Sounds like a bunch of BS, what do you guys think?  What are my chances?
