The fact remains that ExamSoft is not compatable with macs, even if you have virtual PC.
So the bottom line comes down to whether or not you want to type your exams. While, indeed, we all survived undergraduate exams, law school exams are by no means comparable. The exams are 3-4 hours of nonstop essay. If you can type it out, you will undoubtedly be able to write probably twice as much as if you were writing it. Considering that one never has enough time to answer the questions as fully as one would like, why put yourself at another disadvantage by slowly writing your answers. AND, if you decide you want to add/delete/change something in your essay, it's just like a word processing program where you can move things around. So when looking at the bottom line - is getting a PC worth it? Considering that these exams constitute your entire law school grades, and arguably your employment prospects, I think it would be foolish to stick with a computer that won't help you along your way. All things in perspective, the money spent on a computer is a drop in the bucket compared to what you're spending on your education. Suck it up and get the PC.
