Is there any way to ignore a board member besides just not reading what they write?  Because Julie Fern has got to be the most annoying, pretentious, and ignorant poster that I have even encountered.

I don't know whether anyone has officially posted St. Louis, but I got in there via mail as of yesterday.

You all know why women have breasts right?  So you got something to look at when you're talking to them!

I know Julie is kidding, but she's right.  The presidency of Obama cannot possibly be successful unless he completely switches his opinions on almost every issue.  Sad but true.

Philosophy is the best, especially if you study in an analytically disposed department.  However, no matter what your major, taking logic courses will help on the LSAT.  

Also, while it is true that philosophy is not as practical as engineering (so you might want to avoid it if getting a good job is your goal), employers increasingly say that they just want a college graduate.  They don't really care what your degree is in.  Granted, you won't get a job at a lab or as an engineer, but philosophy is no worse than english, political science, or most social sciences and humanities.

Arizona by snail mail with money.  Exciting.

having strong analytical skills and being liberal have a strong, though certainly not absolute correlation.

Misleading and irrelevant

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Creighton vs Wyoming

You're not sure why someone would want to live in Wyoming??  For one it is >>>>> than Nebraska.  I can't say anything about whether you should go Wyoming or Creighton for job prospects.  However, I went to Wyoming for my BA and MA, and I know people who went to law school there (as you may also, since you said you are in state at Wyoming), and they seemed to do well in getting jobs.  Remember, UW (Wyoming) is the only law school in the state, so it dominates in placing in the state.   I wouldn't even consider Creighton if my only other option was Wyoming, but that's because I love Wyoming, and I can't imagine that Creighton would offer much more in job prospects than Wyoming.  Also, the cost of tuition is going to more than outweigh any gain in employment opportunities at Creighton.  The worst thing about Wyoming (depending on one's perspective) is that you will most likely have to move to at least Cheyenne to get a job.  It is unlikely to find a job too nearby.
