Could you disclose how much your stipend at IU was?

  • LSAT

if you have a moment, do you mind giving me some insight into what you did to prepare for the LSAT? Great job and enjoy Duke

  • ummm

Duke over Harvard? is this for real?

  • LSAT Prep

I took about 25 practice tests over a 6 week period. I didn't look at any test prep "methods", since I like to develop my own as I go.

  • Duke over Harvard

WOW.. its just sad that someone is such a rankings whore that they assume taking a full-tuition scholarship at Duke vs. nothing but loans at Harvard must be fake. There are more important things in life than chasing prestige at all cost and working like a dog to make more money than I actually need.

  • Congrats!

Hey RootBeer, Thanks for the kind message, you made a wise decision yourself. A full-tuition scholarship at a quality institution cannot be beat. Plus, Durham is cool (Duke is in Durham, right? :) ). My question for you, though, is why Duke over Michigan? What programs are you interested in?

  • And One More Thing...

Yes, IU's library rocks. School building aesthetics *shouldn't* be important, but let's be honest! I couldn't take UMN w/ equal scholarship & higher ranking because of all their red brick (and crappy weather). :) Good luck in law school!

  • Comments on IU

Thanks, iloverootbeer2we're excited about IU, Bloomington, and the whole experience. Im encouraged to see youve also made a great decision (with quite the array of choices I might add) that takes into account much more than the often slighted, and yet near-universally-cited rankings. While its a pity we wont be seeing you at IU, your comments, frankly, have made my day. Best of luck at Duke! Matt

  • Why IP is mistreated

I think the very tip-top schools don't give IP much respect because it isn't a "traditional" area of law. They probably don't see a good correlation between having a strong IP program and really presitigious honors and statistics, like SCOTUS clerkships.

Nice job on the prestigious admissions? Which private university did you attend? I am also an engineering major (EE) and am looking for some pointers. Thanks!
