Don't use LW at all if you really want to learn Maya.. Then you will be forced to learn it and you will also learn it faster that way.. (I did)

But anyway.. If you really need to use LW with Maya you can export your objects to OBJ..
It works pretty well..

my school is forceing me to take it, because it is an industry standard and whatnot but ti dose not mean i have to like it :)
my school offers a Studio Max, Maya, Softimage, LightWave and Houdini class. but i think Newtek did something to the school becuse they always shaft the lightwave classes. i may take houdini just because it looks soo cool.
