NYU v. HLS
Wednesday, August 03 2005 at 08:00 PM

Sorry, I haven't checked this site for a long time. Anyway, I chose NYU for the money, because I wanted to be in New York, because the program I am in gives me the same opportunities, if not more, than I would have had at Harvard, and generally the students at NYU seemed much happier. If you get accepted to both don't worry about the decision too much, to be honest I don't think it really matters where you go if you get into the top schools.

Only 2 schools

It's still early. There's plenty of time to send out more after the ED and EA decisions come back. I'm also willing to wait a year, so I figured getting out 2 reach apps this year would be good and then I can apply all over next year if this doesn't work out. These things are expensive.

thanks dude

Thanks for the comment

It looks like you've already got some good soft factors. Just make sure to keep up your grades and study hard for the LSAT--not much else to do when applying to law school. Good luck!

Thanks!

Good luck to you next year!

thanks!

let's hope NY keeps liking me! I got the Cornell nod via email.

hey

Thanks man. Do you read LSD? Start doing so religiously. That board will be the best pre-law advisor you've ever had.

Thanks!

My only "wise words" are to work full-time for at least a year before going to law school. Even if you've always had an interest in law and are absolutely confident that you want to be a lawyer. Working will give you more insight into what you want to practice, and if you pick certain industries to work in, why it is important (particularly as a minority) to study the law. [Plus schools seem to be leaning towards selecting a more experienced class]. I think its a fabulous idea to use this website to gauge what schools to apply to and for general advice. Best of luck in the future :)

My Two Cents

I have found that Anna Ivey's book mirrored my law school application experience. I would recommend the book to anyone (especially over other books on the market) applying to law school. I think her advice on the personal essay helped the most. Despite my terrible GPA, I have made out with some great acceptances and scholarships. I think that is directly related to my personal essay.

Dont write one. If I could give you any advice that would be it. And don't bother paying for those KAPLAN classes. I've been invited to teach and don't have a clue about what I am doing. Sleep a lot before the LSAT. Eat breakfast before the lsat. Buy two books and two books only... LSAT 180 and "Curve Breakers". Disregard the first chapter of Curve breakers. I stil don't know how to play the "simple" games it tries to teach you. Contrapositives don't make sense. And are not productive.

I didn't take a prep course. However, I did use POWERSCORE's Logical Reasoning study book. I also did timed practice tests. I started studying in June/July before the October test. I looked at some of the other books, like Kaplan and Princeton Reviews, they looked terrible! I would only recommend POWERSCORE. Additionally, I had a friend who used their Logic Games book and was thrilled with his results.
