thanks for ur message... ya, i figured that about famu but i thought maybe u would transfer out..and the pt suggestion is only for the first year...u would take 12 credits/semester and then switch over to fulltime 2nd semester or 2nd year depending on the school...the 6 or so credits is made up in the first summer

Sunday, December 31 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey! Congrats on your acceptances. I am retaking the lsat in June and pre tests after taking a course are high 150's low 160's. I highly doubt Cooley will be my playground, but if things do not go as planned I will bite the bullet. Any big decisions on where you are going to end up ?? Western???
