Re: Applying after seat deposit

you lose most of the leverage gained from a killer march LSAT by committing to attend this cycle, both in terms of admissions, negotiating scholarships so the advice, not to be reductive, is to sit out and reapply.

Re: career in financial/business fraud or antitrust

"they weigh all your scores" is apocryphal pre-2008 advice. read: no, it's not true. schools just care about reporting their incoming class's GPA/LSAT, bc that's what's required to be reported, and that's what the [USNWR] rankings use. and schools don't *really* care about your score, or rankings, o...

Re: Applying to UVA & Penn Law

Those are pretty lofty goals. Like, unrealistically lofty. Are you ok with a more typical outcome? It'd be an enormous waste of time, money, and effort if you're not. Ok, withdrawing before grades came out probably makes you ok to reapply as a 1L. Scoring your best on the LSAT is more than "makes a ...

Re: Applying to UVA & Penn Law

1) What are your career goals?
2) How long were you at Detroit Mercy before dropping out/are you sure you can reapply?
3) You already admitted that you don't have the best score you have, so why not get the best score you can, even if it means sitting out a cycle?

I mean, you're anticipating problems but nothing bad's happened yet - and if things do start to fall apart, it won't be so precipitous that you won't be able to protect yourself by lateraling later. that's what i mean when i said that you don't have any substantive reasons. everything's just an if b...

Re: TLS/LSLer seeking lateral choice advice

i don't see any substantive, or direct reasons to move firms.

and i'm a little confused bc you said you've got classmates at your firm - just not in your practice group or floor of the building. any reason... not to hang out with them? at lunch or whatever?

i can think of no worse outcome for a 3.99 EE/CE from a public ivy to end up 300k in debt, doing patent pros.
400k in debt doing patent lit?
at least you got to live it up $100k more during law school and anything over 250k is funny money anyway so who cares.

Do you want to practice in Cincinnati?

Re: Chase Law School Part Time Evening Program

170. Just keep practicing until you're at that level - then apply to law school.

But, (1) why do you want to go to law school, and (2) will you be able to go on the army's dime?

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 ...
