Current Law Students / Re: Taking the LSAT w/o a prep course
« on: October 05, 2006, 06:12:21 AM »
I signed up for Kaplan but figured I could do it on my own so canceled. I ened up buying the three Official PrepTest books (30 tests total) and doing most of them, starting with the newer ones, bought Master the LSAT and the Powerscore Reasoning book. Just map out a study plan using whatever materials you feel you need. You'll definately need a lot of preptests. Master the LSAT maps out a great study plan based on the amount of time you have. 4-8 weeks I believe it was. Good luck. Like people said, I would go to the prelaw board for more info/support...

Current Law Students / Re: 1L Evening Students - Work or no work?

At my school, I'd estimate that about 80% of the evening 1L students worked. I did.

I won't say that you SHOULD get a job, but I can tell you that you are almost universally loathed by those who do work in your class. Everybody is cordial, but the class was pretty split in who hung out with whom - working with working, and non-working with non-working.

I can definately see those type of dynamics being created at my school. I had dinner with some E students last Friday, 1 of which didn't work and there was the sense from the ones that did that they didn't approve. Hence the comment "people need to understand that the only way some people can go to law/graduate school is by working FT." It's just frustrating and anoying.

Current Law Students / Re: 1Ls, how much time do you spend studying?

Part time and I spend same as tobias, about 4 hours each day during the week and usually less on weekends, maybe only 1-2 hours each day

Current Law Students / 1L Evening Students - Work or no work?
« on: October 04, 2006, 08:51:27 AM »
This is for the 1L evening students. How many of you work? In my class most students do and I'm starting to feel like a bum for not working. Unfortunately I wasn't offered a seat for days so I took the evening offer. A friend of mine at the same school had the same problem and tranfered into days (my hope). Anyway I'm just really curious how many E students at other schools have jobs.

Current Law Students / Summer Jobs for PT 1L
« on: May 28, 2006, 06:49:39 PM »
I'm starting school this fall as a 1L but I will be part-time (unfortunately) for hopefully only my first year. I'm wondering what the summer job market is like (if it exists) for summers after a PT 1L year. Thanks!!!

Current Law Students / Gilbert vs. E&E

Which one do you all feel offers the better products??? Thanks!!!

Thanks SD. That's what I'm starting to think. Try it for the first semester or 2 and take it from there...

Current Law Students / Question for any this crazy?
« on: April 30, 2006, 06:19:45 AM »
Ok so I have a quick question for any PT students on here. I was recently accepted into New England School of Law's part-time program. I am from the greater Hartford/Middletown Connecticut area which is about 2 hours from Boston. Would it be stupid to just stay in CT and take the Amtrak to Boston 3 days a week for classes? Or do you think this will get old after 4 years? How long is the commute for some of you PT's. Any advice would be great. Thanks!!!

Also if there are any NESL students on here do they have a part to full option???

I got off the waitlist Saturday. I think I'm going to be attending. I personally really like the school. The reputation is good for a 4th tier school. Although if you want to stay and practice in a Boston firm you'll have a lot of competition from other schools.
