Southern Methodist / SMU transfers

Did anyone transfer in or out of SMU?  What was your experience like?

People terribly concerned with their marketability are misappropriating responsibility.  Your law school, ranked by the cronies of American media and using the most bogus "calculations," is not responsibility for the social ineptitude of job candidate graduating from its institution.  But, alas, it's far easier to point the blame at extrinsic factors like law school reputation or "ranking" than it is to be honest with oneself. 

Case in point, case in point, case in point.

Transferring / Re: TJSL v. USD

Can you sell yourself in a job interview.

If YES, stay at TJ.  If NO, buy your alumni contacts at USD.

How people cannot see through the transparent money-making venture that is the Newsweek law school rankings is BEYOND me.  Aren't we supposed to be skilled at higher reasoning?  Ever heard of medical school rankings?  Why not? 

WE ALL TAKE THE SAME LICENSING TEST!  I bang my head thinking of the idiots who live and die on this website trying to figure out an artificial ranking system.  FOOLS!  I hope the publishers at Newsweek make loads of money off the idiots who buy their crap, and have a good laugh while they're at it.  Anyone who is duped by such stupidity is the author of their own demise.

Now, if you're a socially inept moron who cannot sell himself in an interview, perhaps securing your future by way of school reputation isn't such a bad idea.  For the rest of us socially well adjusted folks who can nail every interview we have, we'll be laughing when we see you in court.  Too bad your school jacket won't be allowed in the room.  Boo hoo!

I am completely nervous about applying to law school... I live in Ohio so I have limited choices on where I can go. My GPA is not the best; I messed up my 2nd year and it ruined my GPA (and ever since being on the Dean's List barely raised it). And I got in the low 150's on my LSAT. So given this, I pretty much should decide between Dayton and Capital. But I know both are ranked very low. I wanted so much to go to Case Western, but my 2nd year ruined that chance. Any advice on what I should do, or any other schools that I should consider (and that I have a chance of getting into)? Also, does applying for early decision help your chances? Someone told me that applying to Case as an early decision may increase my chances... And I am retaking my LSAT in Sep.

You have no clue what you're talking about.  The Canadian healthcare system is utter crap and I know because I've been subjected to it for a quarter of a century.  When a country makes it illegal for you to get the best treatment and people actually DIE waiting for operations and medical appointments, IT DOESN'T WORK.  People who look toward the Canadian health care structure have condemned themselves as totally ignorant and simple. Save face and stop this nonsense.

You're certainly welcome on the advice.  I was too stubborn to believe it when I was in your position, but thankfully older, trustworthy friends who had been there and done that guided me to the simple realization.  Again, congratulations, and get to the bottom of the M.O. question.  Therein lies the answer, and you will thank me in a year.

Why, pray tell, do you rely on the advice of annonymous bloggers who do not have a vested interest in your future?  You've made some solid observations.  Lesson 1 of law school:  take the facts, analyze, and reach a conclusion.  Instead of wasting your energy writing an exegesis on why a buffoon is a buffoon, pay attention to yourself, and your feelings on where is a better fit.  The best thing I ever did was disregard the stupidity of the posturing on this board and enroll at the school whose modus operandi best jibed with mine.  If I were to help prospectives, I'd yell this from the rooftop and get rid of useless "Which is a better school?" threads.  You'll understand soon enough. 

Good luck and congratulations on getting accepted! 

Its not that im relying on any one persons  information, but rather trying to expand my understanding by looking at others perspectives. I donít feel that I have wasted my time however, I genuinely had a good time exposing the weaknesses in his argument. Thank you for your advise, in the past, the people that have given me the best advise, have said exactly that.

Perhaps this is a better channel for my frustration?
