OMFG are you being paid by TJSL to whore for them?

Yes.  You have me all figured out. ::)

Law School Admissions / Re: Accepted Again, :) help me choose

I am a 2nd semester 1L at TJSL and I like it.  I would choose TJSL

Let's pretend the best numbers are right.  This school is one of many who do not properly academically support their 1Ls and drop them after year 1.  The other option is that they admit people they know can't succeed in order to create revenue for their program and then cut them loose before they have a chance to fail the bar and damage the school's reputation.  This school cuts ties with 13% of their 1Ls and 6% of their 2Ls and still has a lousy bar pass rate.  They should be nice to you when you have a problem, they are essentially robbing members of your class (possibly you) in order to pay their own salaries.

I currently attend TJSL (2nd semester 1L) and I would like to say that your comment is so not true.  I had doubts about the school when I started but those doubts have been erased.  I am VERY happy with where I ended up and at this point wouldnt transfer.  TJSL DOES properly support their 1L's...I have yet to have a bad experience with any prof., staff, dean, etc.  EVERY person at this school has their door open and is willing to help.  TJSL does not subscribe to the "sink or swim" policy of most law schools.  There is a variety of academic support available to students....if they choose to take advantage of it.  For you (someone who has never been a student at TJSL) to say that the school is "robbing" members of our class to pay their salaries is just silly.

I am sorry to beat a dead horse, but why is it SO hard for you to decide if you want to go to TJSL?  If I recall from your previous posts that is the only school where you have been accepted...correct?  So it seems to me that your choice is go to TJSL or dont go to Law School.  I think you should make a choice based on how you feel about the school not opinions from the internet.  I have had nothing but good expereiences with them.  Everytime I have/had a question it is answered promptly. Emails and phone calls are returned quickly and I generally like the people that I have spoke to wo attend and work there and the schools location fits needs that I have for a Law School (due to family constraints).  I am able to choose based on my own personal experiences (As I can see some others have not had the same as I have and that should be expected with any school) that TJSL is a school that I would consider going to. It may not be the school for everyone, but it will work for me and MY life. If you continue to consider everyone else's opinion and not your own, you may end up making the wrong choice.  It seems to me that you once again are looking for validation.  In your last post you were not sure about attending and it almost seemed like you wanted to hear all the bad about TJSL to make yourself feel better.  After speaking with the attorney you randomly selected, you seem to have a different outlook (which is great) but you need to choose one and let yourself go with it. Teetering will cause nothing but problems.

Honestly...It sounds like you have already made up your mind, you are just looking for validation.  I would not attend TJSL purely based on your attitude toward the school.  I don't think you would be doing yourself any favors starting out your law school education with a negative attitude toward the school.

just my two cents.

"Due to no error on the part of the Career Services Office, the
rate was erroneously reported as 42.75."

Who's error was it?

I got this e-mail this morning too...I thought it was interesting.

Is this casual?  Semi-Casual?  I dont wanna show up in jeans and look like a freak.

Stupid question, I know.

i thought that cleveland state, ohio northern, and arkansas (little rock) are pretty bad as well.

I agree...Cleveland States is pretty bad.  Very low tech.

I bought a car last week....and when the coked-up financing guy was going over my credit report (he looked at Equifax only) and was estimating what my interest rate would be (it was a Saturday, so banks were closed), he told me a great piece of information...get your credit report, and if there are any paid collections or late credit card payments, file a formal dispute on all of them.  Assuming collections/late payments have been paid, companies rarely respond to such 30 days after the dispute is filed, it is wiped from your credit report forever if there is no response...and this is reflected immediately in your credit score.  He told me all you need to say in your dispute is something to the effect of:

"My records indicate no delinquency with this account."

And that gets the ball rolling.  Good deal, huh?

My family owns a Collection Agency and this is true. If the agency does respond w/in 30 days it will do you no good.  They will return the dispute as validated and it will stay on your CBR.  You can take the chance on it and it might work out for the best.
