But seriously, if you've had Chicago or Illinois security deposit problems with a landlord, visit
Let's try to keep it together team.  This is a law school discussion board.  I don't see how hebrew mushrooms got involved.

You need to no wat to capitalize and how to spell! 
Don't worry about math.
By the time you're licensed in 2018 lawyers will have been replaced by On-Star.
But if you're still interested in the subject, academically, concentrate on writing.

I have been a student since december 2005. Recently I tried to send my assignment via e-mail and I got an e-mail response that the address is no longer valid. I have left phone messages with the answering service for a week and still no response. Has the law school closed or can somebody tell me just what is going on. The school is still taking my finance. Does any one know where the school is located? or just what is happening?


This is serious.  Someone is going to law school on the internet, and now the law school's internet address is down, and the student doesn't know where the law school physically is.

I hope they haven't charged anyone tuition.

Please, for the love of Freedom, stop going to law school on the internet.

Don't be surprised if you walk out of the test feeling like you've failed. I think that's normal.

I think if you walk out of the MPRE feeling like you've failed, then you've failed.  It's the kind of test they can train monkeys to do for raisins.

Just remember, client's money should not be spent on your car payments.

Law school is only crappy if you thought it would be fun by itself.  But there's always interesting people (especially foreign LLM students), and you're still usually on a college campus with a free gym membership.  And then, there's traditionally only ONE TEST PER CLASS and no homework all semester.  Compared to any other professional degree, law is the easiest and least demanding.  Your med school buddies are pulling 10 hour rotations by your last year, while you might be waking up at noon.  If you can't enjoy law school, you can't enjoy anything.

I just graduated and passed the Illinois Bar in 2005, and have never heard of PLS.  The best approach I found was typing the gist of everything the prof said in class and then reviewing that before exam time.  Sometimes I'd read it into a microphone and make a .wav file to listen to also.  Finally, get old exams either (a) from the same prof or, if you can't get those, get (b) exams on the same topic from google or wherever else you can.  You don't even have to answer the questions  -  just read & think about 'em.  If you can get the fat BarBri sample essays+answers book, that'll go a long way for any subject that's covered.

Listen to lectures on CD.  I passed the Illinois Bar and studies for the multiple choice part, the MBE, by listening to the PMBR lectures through headphones over and over again while doing other stuff.  Mostly passive listening, but repetetive.  It worked, and I never read a single outline.  I can still hear Bob Feinberg saying "licensee, invitee, licensee" in my head.  It probably would help to listen to the CDs while falling asleep and waking, in REM phase sleep, but not long-wave sleep phases.

If you do poorly on your LSAT, don't sweat it.  If your goal was to become a lawyer, rather than go to some fancy-ass law school, you're still in the game.  Once you pass the bar you are a lawyer no matter what (ABA accredited) law school you went to.  Once you have your license, school is in the past and your initiative is all that counts.

Your statement, whatever it is, should be short and to the point.  Short sentences are good.  So is simple language.  The way things are at most universities, you should talk about wanting to help "underserved" and "underprivileged" populations.  Say you are comfortable with delayed gratification too.  Good luck.
