Re: Welcome, lurkers - what questions do you have?

any competitions like the above link i posted where one could give it a shot even if not a law student? i really liked that it wasn't too long, only 4000-7500 words (not including footnotes).

Re: Welcome, lurkers - what questions do you have?

i was looking at this https://www.georgetowntech.org/writingcompetition just to make the abstract idea of a publication more real to conjure, to have something to talk about with potential collaborators, and have something of a rough deadline, until i found that these are open only to law students.

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

wow, that means hunter biden must have done really well if his gulc grades made transfer even plausible (considering how tough yls transfer is). it doesn't seem he graduated YLS with any latin honors though, which is a bit surprising considering he must have had almost top grades after 1L.

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

After a year at Georgetown, Hunter transferred to Yale Law, where he completed his degree, in 1996.
regarding biden's son, was it based on his law school performance or could it be influence?

Most of my friends during law school were older students in their mid-late 30s, and I was a K-JD. i don't see it as one (i hope it's not), but i don't discount that law schools like t6 may be full of gunners with people acting very competitive with each other. i...

Re: 3.99 Engineering GPA, but 168 GRE to LSAT conversion--Chance Me

A 164 quant is in the 87th percentile of test-takers. A 162 verbal is in the 91st percentile. The respective LSAT scores at those percentiles are a 162 and 164 respectively - those would be the measures I'd look at for an estimate of how equivalent scores are calculated. You've got the quant skills...
