Transferring, and letter of good standing...

Hello, Just would love some advice on transferring (I left my other school after 1 semester, a host of issues) but, now I am applying for a new school a year later (took the year off, to address a lot of things, figure if law was for me, etc...) so now I'm trying to apply for a new school. Some scho...

Transferring or switching schools after only 1 semester

Hello, to whom it may concern I was wondering what can be done, or what you can do, if you're planning to transfer to another school after only completing 1 semester at your law school (just fall) grades were alright (C+,C+, B, C, another grade that is being removed). What are the rules? (You got to...

He at the time had spent 25 years, and 5 years at two schools in California I wanted to attend. He has an opening for a law assitant during the year( which ...

Re: Going to a school in home state, or moving to D.C.?

If you really want to see it through, you basically only have one option now anyway. Just know you're going to have to work your ass off and hustle hard to keep your scholarship (if it's conditional) and to get a job (it's not biglaw or bust; biglaw's just what hires and pays the most, there are pl...

Re: Going to a school in home state, or moving to D.C.?

It sounds like you actually don't want biglaw, but you're interested in a lot of other fields, like working in-house at a hospital system, pharmaceutical company, or working in a small law firm doing transactional work for small or medium sized businesses. You don't seem very interested in entertai...

Re: Howard and the Biglaw

I would not recommend attending Seattle University at $135k, or even $100k for that matter. Given your options, I recommend taking up a job (or remaining at your current one) and spending more time studying for the LSAT. Given that you'd be able to live at home if you went to Seattle U, it may make...

Re: Going to a school in home state, or moving to D.C.?

Your posts are raising some red flags about whether you should pursue law school right now. First, you keep dropping new information that reaffirms you could still improve on the LSAT. The late doctor's note, the unfinished test, the test anxiety - these are all fixable. And fixing them will save y...

Re: Going to a school in home state, or moving to D.C.?

Neither. That's way too much debt for those schools. If you refuse to retake and insist on going to law school, go somewhere that's really cheap. And if I understand things correctly, you are black, right? That's an even better reason to work your ass off to do better on the LSAT. If you do well on...

Howard and the Biglaw

Heard Howard Law places well in Biglaw, and does alrifht the D.C. market..If you don’t attend the T-14-24 schoos, is Howard the best bet for a black lawyer? I asked a lot of people in L.A., and they all expressed that Howard was my best bet. I can also attend Seattle U( Northwest, born there), and w...
