I've seen some threads about this in the past (not sure which forum) - but it comes down to a question of how much you want to spend and what's important to you. A lot of people want lighter computers because of how many books you have during LS. I'd also factor in warranties/service turnaround. PC vs Mac should make no difference in terms of programs needed, but double check with your school's IT when you attend to see if your comp's specs would be compatible with the school's exam software.

Anyone else getting endless Starbucks card bribe offers from Penn State for applying?


Can't remember which school it was that offered me a free laptop if I attended...but it was certainly tempting. I'm still rocking my 2010 Macbook pro and that won't cut it for law school.

I know I got that free laptop offer from some school, I think in the South (Alabama??).

Anyway, I always check out the Wirecutter (website) for tech recommendations. They're great because they usually just have a "best" thing (laptop, television, cheap headphones, etc.). This is nice because you don't have to read a whole review and compare scores. The only downside is that their recommended products have a bad habit of increasing in price due to the increase in purchases off the recommendation.

I think their current laptop recs are a MacBook Air and the Dell XPS 13. If they're compatible with your school's tech, can't go wrong.

For anyone who obsesses over cycle data, this information might be relevant to your interests. Obviously it doesn't include score distribution and further breakdown that Spivey gives and so is more useful as a general snapshot of the larger applicant pool rather than a look at the preftigious lawl schools to which many here have applied.

Comments section is fun too

why am I reading this on a Saturday

this is a cry for help

Occurred to me a few hours late that maybe you guys might enjoy the leaked 2016 USNWR rankings too. Spivey only has the top 50, but there are some notable shake-ups, if the list is to be believed. :shock: http://blog.spiveyconsulting.com/2017-2016-release-usnwr-are-here/

Yeah, I think everyone's gone off into their individual school's thread now.

Damn, how long are you gone for? This wait would kill me. Can someone else check it for you?

Also, FWIW, I haven't gotten a call from Liberty in months :shock:

I'm hopeful for you!

Help me out here... What exactly is the process here. I just fill out what school I reasonably expect to go to and then what school I end up going to? Or am I confused? I am a regular Andy Dwyer.

Exactly!! It was a lil more fun earlier on before people started getting acceptances, though!

well benwyatt ... Due to my plan being a bit unlike the masses of posters here. My expected schools are pretty straight split between Wake and UT-Knoxville, neither of which are drop down options, no real surprise there. so perhaps in the future I will fill it out for the hell of it. But I imagine my data point does not add much to the convo, what with my plan on riding $$$$ and a regional network into a small-mid law career

I'll be back Saturday! Luckily I'm on a beach so I can't complain too much :lol: so far no follow up emails though so I'm doubtful it's anything actually exciting. It's like a fun mystery!

Don't worry, dawg, I'll add your schools to it!
Not right now because I'm working, but I'll do it this evening and let you know when it's up to date.
