Stupid dyslexic thread...I asked for 176, but I got 167.   :(


Stupid network error...I just typed this long explanation, but now it's gone...

In short, my answer was a wise-guy response to the question 'why do I want to go to law school?'.  The reason: to be able to practice law. 

Of course, I dodged answering the bigger question: 'why do you want to practice law?'.  Ultimately our reasons for deciding almost anything are varied.  Some reasons are known to us, others have to be sort of retroactively inferred. 

Yes I forgot the thread title when I posted that...! Days later, as I re-scan LSD, I get it.  ::) What can I say.

My reason is simple - I want to practice law.

How does this response not beg the question..?

Just be honest.  It's because you couldn't get into U. Chicago.

Do not be a d&^%.

OP, just be honest. If you are coming from a Jesuit school and you want to continue at a Jesuit school--well, tell them why. I'm sure they'll be receptive.

FWIW, I have noticed pretty bad quality control from Delerium. Sometimes it's excellent, other times so-so. Either way, it certainly won't hurt you to drink it.

Next time, go with St. Barnadus ABT 12.

Thanks!!  :)

OK So I did post a Julie Fern title. That was an accident. But I'm drinking this Delerium Tremens, and it tastes a bit funny. BUT I'm not a huge Beligian beer drinker, so maybe this is normal..? I typically don't go for Belgians because they're too sweet and rich for my taste. I prefer IPAs, and others of that sort. This particular beer is OK, but a bit metallic. Not what I expected. Anyone?

Tasha if you keep up with all this molly-gabbering we'll have to send you off to Jackson's Hole all alone. Besides, assuming mean-talk is appropriate for chubby ladies means I'd have to be mean to all the chubby ladies I see. I really am not into that.

Remember Pulp Fiction? Pot bellies are SEXY. Deal with it already.  :-*

no, siberia is nicer as is

I am looking forward to law school.(Yes, yes, I know, I haven't gotten there yet.) But a toasty cabin in the hinterlands might coax me away, provided certain necessities were supplied.  :)

yea and you have to sign up at duke law's web site to get it.  it's the simplest signup ever you give them an email addy and a confirmation number i think.

But you've got to get the waiver first, right?
