(of T14) You pretty much limit yourself to S, B and D with those weather parameters - unfortunately, those are all pretty GPA heavy. So..apply to strong regionals near you or wherever you want to be

Yeah the only T10 that has historically ever taken a sub-3.0/170+ according to myLSN is UVA. Their weather isn't terrible.

yeah... dont see the reason for lurker option, and sicilian is just a type of pizza, doesnt really fit in with the other options since it will still taste different if its a sicilian slice from NY vs elsewhere like Chicago

Last year's Feb thread was only like 70 pages total. We did that on the first day. By that standard we're a roaring success.

Also I actually took Feb and I'm definitely going this year.

Thanks for that Leslie :)


Yeah this is a great thread. The purpose of this thread is to help people reduce stress and to help people lose track of time, I feel like it's been doing both of those well. :D

I don't know about all of them, but New Haven is a style that is usually not a perfect circle pizza. It has a chewier crust and is usually a bit charred on the bottom. Not so much that it tastes burnt (at least if its good), but enough that you get a distinct char flavor.

It's also more common to find either white pies using ricotta or cream base, or tomato pies, using no mozzarella, than it is for New York Style. However, that's not a required feature and I wouldn't say that its a distinguishing characteristic.

Strangely, the best pizza place I've ever found in Seattle makes New Haven style pizzas. I'm not sure if I prefer that style though.

The power went out last night around here at 8, we just got it back. Nothing makes you appreciate electricity more than losing it for an extended period of time. I def did not enjoy sleeping in 50 degree weather last night :roll:

Also California pizza isn't even a real thing. What distinguishes CA pizza? The toppings? I don't buy it.

The options were completely wiki based. And I just wanted a lurker count. I am very odd.

Shemp, I thought you wanted to become an LSAT instructor. I was under the impression that didn't require a JD. Are you still considering that, because your GPA probably wouldn't hold you back from it and getting a high LSAT would give you an advantage there.

I had to at least attest to the fact that I took the LSAT for the purpose of admission to law school, and this winter is killing me, so I'm just performing my due diligence by trying to figure out a school that would both give me a legitimate reason to move somewhere warm and make me a lawyer for free.

Why bleak reality and brutal honesty is better then fun advice .... this discussion on another board

FSU or WF?




The only issue I have is which school would afford me a better chance at practice in South Florida at a large-to medium size firm. Tuition cost is not an issue, nor is which place I live in during law school (since I would not remain in either locale) I am from Pa, and intend to relocate to South Florida after school where my family now resides.
Would the higher rank of Wake Forest be more impressive to employers, or would it be a better bet to remain in Fla? (The only other school I am considering is Ohio State, but I am assuming its Midwest locale is a negative despite the schools fine reputation)
Any insights would be appreciated.


And amongst several gems is this comment ...


Between the two, FSU since you know you want to work in FL. Why have you narrowed it down to just those two though? I would second what Maintain said, expand your scope to UMiami, UF, and FIU. If you want to work specifically in Miami, strongly consider UMiami and FIU. If you want to live by Ft. Lauderdale, also consider Nova.


http://www.lstscorereports.com/compare/fsu/nova/miami/florida/

The honesty and hard answer on the discussions here at TLS don't sugar coat these numbers. Just looking at them you would go and say that they all have between 58% - 68% job rates. until you look at those numbers, costs for that degree, and the salaries

Kaplan has an office in Honolulu and PR has one in San Diego, I'll fire off some apps and try to negotiate some moving truck money.

I usually enjoy it went the power goes out for a few hours but never for longer than that. :P Then I start jonesing for the internet and TV and hot food.

Of course I've only once ever had our power go out when it was a super cold winter when our high for the day was freezing and the lows were in the 10's or 20's. The power was out for a week but after two or three days we left to be with our parents who had power. I understand now the necessity of having a gas stove top and / or a wood burning fireplace or woodstove. If we move to the Midwest or the East Coast I'll consider those things of high priority when apartment hunting. Though if it comes to AC or fireplace then AC wins.

Ah, I see. Well, as other's have said, it would be tricky to get a full ride, especially with the warm stipulation. Here's the mylsn report on the past 4 cycles with 170+ LSAT and 2.8- GPA, http://mylsn.info/j3lwrv/.

It's definitely possible to get into some good schools, but getting a scholarship will be hard and getting a full ride will be really hard. Arizona State seemed to be the highest rated school that was likely to accept, gave a significant scholarship, and was warm. They gave one of the two on there a full tuition scholarship.

Detroit style pizza is a real thing. Anyone ever have it before? I personally have only had it once before. They usually twice bake the crust and it's similar to sicilian.
