General Board / Paging stillundecided
« on: July 12, 2004, 12:11:10 AM »
Stillundecided, you can believe what you want. I already stated that I was not trying to be rude. Honestly, your post did sound like it could be a prank. I don't know anyone who is interested in law who does not know the answers to the basic questions that you asked. And, some people don't have a life and enjoy posting fake questions on boards like this.  I had no way of knowing that you had attempted to contact your advisor or had done any research. I am not the only one who replied to your post who suggested you research these questions on your own. It appeared that we all assumed that you had not done your research. Also, I had no way of knowing that you planned to pursue a bachler's degree in nursing. You can become a nurse with only an associates degree, and I assumed that this is what you planned to do based on your reference to community college.  And, contrary to your belief, I think quite a bit of nurses. My mom has been a nurse for 30 years, but she would say that her career requires less research and analytic skills than a career in law.  But in the end, believe what you want. You can assume that I was purposefully trying to be rude. You can assume that nursing requires the same amount of research and analytic skills as law. You can assume anything you want. Good luck.



"ASU girl you dont need to be so rude..

What do you mean pranks?...someone must not have a life to have a prank like this, and as far as me seeking out informatin for myself I do do that,Ive emailed the advisor but they're on vacation and got an auto response that they will get back to me whenever they are available. Thats why I thought I would be able to find clear and correct information coming from people who have experienced what I am looking for or are experiencing it now, didnt know I was going to run into someone so arrogant as yourself.

But thanks for assuming that I have no initiative or interest, choosing a career is  HUGE deal for me right now...Every website I go to is not very clear on their information, not to mention I've been told numerous different things about all kinds of careers by other people to come to find out it isnt true.

Nursing also involves research and analytic skills, in fact it takes a whole team of CNA's, RN's, NP's, and doctors to take care of patients. But thanks for acting like nursing was easier, and I do plan on going four years to get my BSN in nursing then going further to become a NP.

God help you ASU girl when a client needs help, im sure they wont be asking questions in a scientific manner. You cant even help someone with a simple answer without being rude, how are you going to help someone in court when they need help from you>?...heh

Oh and next time your ill, go to a lawyer to help you get better...because obviously nursing fields just arent good enough."

i know this is an older post, but i thought i'd throw my 2 cents in...

from what i have heard, most law firms in phoenix have more respect for ua grades than asu grades.  also, a friend of mine who works for senator kyl explained that when he hires interns, he prefers ua students, because they are a "different breed." and by that he means a "good breed."  also, finding summer work in phoenix as a ua student is easy.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Sub 3.0 GPA + 179
« on: July 03, 2005, 03:40:01 AM »

T1s are not out of the question.  just pick the right schools to apply to. i'm at university of arizona (ranked 43, i think).  i had a 3.72 gpa and a 161 lsat.  my gpa is a little higher than yours, but i don't think that really matters.  schools appear more interested in lsat scores.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: My chances?
« on: July 03, 2005, 03:26:47 AM »
Do you stand a chance at Fordham, sure, you are a borderline case, you'll probably bewaitlist, but they will take you serious, if you sell yourself well and the admission officer likes your application you could get in there.  You stand a chance at around 25 to 30 other tier 1 schools, you wouldn't get in to all of them but you would stand a chance at all of them.

I don't have the website you are looking for, but beware chiasu or whatever it is called gives you over optimistic predictions.  It uses data a couple years old when admissions might not have been as competitive and it uses teh schools reported data which includes urm's, which unless you are a urm (in which case the site would underestimate your chances) the calculator will give you a overly opmistic picture.  Probably 50% means 35%, 70% means 50% et cetera, though I totally made up those numbers.

i just plugged my numbers into chiasu, and it gave me pretty low chances of getting into all the schools that i got into.  it doesn't seem to be the best predictor.

Pre-Law in high school / Re: Looking for the best Pre-Law colleges
« on: June 29, 2005, 02:48:29 PM »
something to consider...
after 4 years of undergrad, you might not get into law school or you might decide that you do not want to be a lawyer.
in picking a major, choose one that 1) will prepare you for law school and 2) will help you find a job in an area you want should you decide not to go to law school.
also, if you're interested in a particular area of law, you might need a specific undergrad degree (i.e. accounting or finance for tax law or some sort of science for medical malpractice, etc)

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Syracuse vs Southwestern
« on: June 06, 2005, 08:31:00 PM »
Go with Southwestern over Syracuse. Syracuse doesn't have such an amazing reputation that you'll have a better shot at a socal job after graduation.  It's better to stay in the region you want to work (unless you get into Harvard or Yale).  Also, by staying in socal you'll be able to develop legal contacts in LA and intern at firms and government agencies during the school year (2L, 3L).

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Scholarships
« on: January 07, 2005, 12:08:20 PM »
Last year, when I was applying to schools a school in FL and Ave Maria (in MI) offered me scholarships without my application. I know Ave Maria is a great school for scholarship money if you have a decent LSAT and GPA.

Schools that offered me scholarships (and which might offer you money if you applied)and that I applied to are: University of Arizona, Southwestern, Northeastern, and Ave Maria. I received nothing from Loyola because my LSAT (161) was not high enough.

I am not at UA. It's a great school. If you wouldn't mind living in AZ you should check into applying. Good luck!


"I am not at UA"
So- why didn't you go to UA?

Oops, that was a typo. I meant to say that I am now at UA. :) Sorry!

« on: January 06, 2005, 07:45:35 PM »
Give them a call. I applied and was accepted to Northeastern last year but decided to attend University of Arizona. Everytime that I called the admissions or fin aid offices, I got someone on the phone to help answer my questions. Emails usually aren't very effective. Good luck!
