when do you guys find out who your professors are? i have good outlines for contracts, leg reg, and civil procedure, and not-as-good outlines for torts, property, and criminal law. feel free to PM me and i'll give them to you.

EDIT: they will only be useful if you have the same professors as i did.

EDIT: everyone can now ask dingbat for my outlines and who my professors were.

dingbat: please just forward the outlines and professor info to people who want them. don't forward the email i sent you. thanks.

I did it as a 0L and it was really beneficial for me.

I am a returning 3L TA if you have any questions.

Congrats to everyone.


Just sent in my application. Can't wait to meet my fellow classmates :D

I can't attend as I won't be in NYC yet when it starts. Aug 6th is the start date if I recall.

FYI to those of you admitted early in the cycle with no scholarship:

"@7:00: Scholarships are used by law school admissions offices as recruiting tools. Every school has different renewal criteria. The law school where I work used to offer enormous scholarships (full tuition plus living stipends) that carried renewal standards that typically required people to be in the top 10% of the class. We've relaxed those standards a bit in recent years (and reduced the value of the scholarships accordingly).

Some schools offer scholarships with "good standing renewal" and some schools still have the high value scholarships with very high renewal standards, and some schools are in between.

What I'm hearing is that many schools, early on in the application cycle, made big scholarship offers to their applicants. Now those applicants are getting in off of the wait-lists at higher-ranked schools, so they're leaving their scholarships at the lower-ranked schools behind. Those lower-ranked schools are "recycling" these scholarship offers to new applicants or people on their wait-lists. It is possible that at some of these schools, there were admits in March/April who received no scholarships (because at the time the schools had extended as many offers as they could) and paid seat deposits, and now there are less qualified applicants receiving admission AND scholarship offers, because why would the admissions office go back and give a scholarship to someone who's already paid a seat deposit? (Not saying I agree with this thinking...just trying to explain the thinking.)

As Prof. Campos has pointed out in past entries, scholarships are essentially discounts off of sticker price for students with high LSAT scores. These scholarships are subsidized by the students with low LSAT scores. For the most part, the low LSAT students don't do as well in law school, either, so they end up saddled with debilitating debt and struggling to pass the bar exam and get a job. It is a perverse system."

Up to a 30,000/year guaranteed scholly at Fordham.. may be seeing you people after all if I can push them a bit higher.

- oh yeah, there was a point to this reply - this offer was off wait-list having d-slapped the lsat in June.

You are not the typical w/l case and I'm too classy to call bullshit on your story.

Do the scholarships had restrictions based on performance for renewal each year?
