Current Law Students / Re: I'm looking for housing in Cincinnati

I don't have a car. I'm not sure how public transportation is in Cincinnati. When I mean near the law school I'm talking 5-10 mins. tops walking distance. How is the neighborhood around campus would you say it's worth it or should I just settle for the overpriced graduate housing?

I would say that you don't want to walk around the neighborhood in Cincy.  Public transportation in Cincy exists, but I wouldn't say it's the greatest.  If you get a car, then there are a lot of cool apartments in Cincy.  If not, then I'd settle for the overpriced graduate housing.

I'm looking for housing in Cincinnati, preferably near the law school(University of Cincinnati). Does anyone here know of a decent place to reside in besides the University's graduate housing? I will be moving in during the first week of August. I don't want to live in a house I would rather live in an apartment building and I'm willing to pay 450-650 per month.

I lived in Cincy/NoKy for a few years.  When you say "near the law school," what do you mean exactly?  Walking distance?  Or, a ten-minute drive?  Or, a twenty-minute drive?

Having researched many schools and done the MBA myself, I don't think I can agree in saying that an MBA is an MBA is an MBA.

Part of the problem these days in the saturated MBA market is that the quality of the programs seems to vary significantly among the schools that aren't in, say, the top 30 - 40 schools.  Ultimately the quality of the students coming out (in terms of their education) can be unpredictable.

I've met so-called MBAs from other schools that I'd never heard of and they didn't know the difference between a credit and a debit.  Likewise, you won't find many of the big companies recruiting at some of these places because of their reputation.  Yes, part of this has to do with the school's name - but if it is a good school with good output and a good program, it's reputation will build.

I do agree with you about the MBA market being saturated.  It is nuts.  My MBA is from an academically rigorous school, but not from the top 40.  It kills me when I think that my credential is held in the same regard as some of the MBA diploma mills.  I really don't think HR departments have even heard of the AACSB, to be honest.  I think that's where this MBA is an MBA is an MBA mentality comes into play.

About which accreditation are you speaking?  AACSB?  Much more than the top 20-30 are accredited with the AACSB.

You are right about the dual nature of the MBA, but I disagree with you about being able to ace everything because it's all in the book.  I can tell you that was not true in the most difficult classes, specifically managerial accounting, global macroeconomics, and managerial finance.

I still wake up in cold sweats when I think of those classes...

From what I have read, I do agree with the pecking order - Med -> Law -> Business.

I also have an MBA, but I didn't think it was THAT easy.  I'd say that about 60% of the classes were only moderately tough.  That is, they expected grad school level work out of you.  I'd say about 20% were pretty tough, and the last 20% were very difficult.  I still have nightmares about managerial accounting.

A lot of it depends on your business school, too.

There are a lot of projects, and you are competing against your peers in head-to-head competitive models based on the subject matter.  This part didn't stress me out, however.  I got stressed out by the difficult subject matter in accounting, economics, finance, and statistics.  The tests in the most difficult classes were the hardest I've ever encountered.

There are a lot of different disciplines you must learn while getting your MBA.  Management, stats, accounting, finance, economics, human resources, marketing, etc.  You can't just learn one area like it's your major, and then coast through later classes.  Of course, some classes are harder than others.

Current Law Students / Best Commercial Outlines
« on: May 01, 2005, 08:10:36 AM »
Okay, I know that the advice is to write your own outline, but I want to supplement my studies with a commercial outline.

So, what are the best ones?
