Re: Worried about my backround??

I don’t remember any applications asking for disclosure of anything less than arrests and/or convictions. But whatever you do disclose, just be sure to emphasize how much you’ve learned and grown since the experience and odds are are you’ll be fine.

Re: Weird law school classes

yeah seems like utterly boring and normal law school fare. my school was great about letting you take courses from other departments so I filled as much of my 3L schedule as I could with stuff like foreign languages and accounting. I did have some great “law and” courses, healthcare, philosophy of p...

You know Commercial Paper is one of the bar topics, right?
I always hear this on LSL yet in three bars and two summers of bar study managed never once to encounter it.

Re: Cannot Login on Phone Says IP Address Banned?

It is saying I have been banned through my IP Address, but only when trying to login on my cell phone. The reason it gives is: Why man.

It probably depends on your school, but at many law schools F’s are basically unheard of. I wouldn’t stress about it. It’ll only wear you out before your other exams, and anyway it’s over — nothing more to be done about that one anyway! Odds are good you did better than you think you did. But even i...

Re: Volunteer Experience in Application

The one-page rule definitely holds for law firm job applications and similar work when you don’t have that much experience in a field. School applications for prospective students are a whole different thing filled with fluff. Pretty sure my LSAC applications were 2-3 pages as well.

Re: Apply now or wait for Jan?

Depends what your goals and circumstances are, but if you have room for LSAT improvement waiting and retaking is almost always the better advice. It’s getting a little late in the cycle for first pass applications anyway. Plus you have a full-time job, so there’s a big benefit in continuing to work ...

If you’re a 2L or 3L with a job offer secured, you can also take a part time job to make money during school. ^ this is a good caveat, and if your summer job is in the city you attend school in you may even be able to keep working well into the school year. I had several classmates who kept on in a...
