If you have terrible credit, you will need a co-signer with damn near perfect credit. Period. And if you don't have a co-signer with damn near perfect credit, then you've gotta come up with something else, what that is.........can't help you. I feel for ya though, I was in the same position last year, except, my credit wasn't horrible, I just couldn't find a qualified co-signer. NO ONE. I had to cash in life insurance policies and do other things to come up with all the cash, I have no idea what I'm going to do for next year...............

Current Law Students / Re: Books - Sell or Keep? Help!

Sell them online - you will never look at the blasted things again when there are books that actually tell you something about the law. Casebooks are useless except for school - first, because the cases are so highly edited and second, because you can't find BLL easily in a casebook. Save your treatises and hornbooks.

This is the best idea. I'm keeping my hornbook, but I bought most of my casebooks online, so I figure I can get the same price I paid or more, & the person who buys it is also saving.

Whew! Although I didn't read those examples before taking the exam, I feel better reading it now 'cause I found myself during the exam making sure I DIDN'T do those things. I feel a little better now even though I still am going over and over and over in my head about things I meant to write, but didn't.

But those are good exam tips nevertheless.

#7. THE THIRD TIER TOILER ANSWER:
"I am a f**cking loser and I don't know anything so I will just ramble on about some retarded concept that we learned, and maybe I will get a point. Wait, I know! Marbury v. Madison! No, wait- that's complicated! How about Pennoyer? Oh yeah, like if the plaintiff puts notice in a porn mag and mails it to the forum? No, no, I mean like if there's a tort that means maybe there is a procedual issue could the defendant argue this instead of the tort because that means its not in court yet so make a 12b1 dismissal. Wait, is this tort or contracts?"

HOW THE PROFESSOR SEES IT:
"What a f**cking moron. How did this idiot get into law school? Yields are up- doesn't that mean morons don't get in anymore? Did they miread his LSAT score? What a TTT. I am offended- I talked to this feminine hygiene product all semester about Civ Pro and he doesn't even know what Pennoyer is? Am I secretly teaching at a Cooley satellite school? They don't pay me enough to deal with these losers."

Hmmmmmm, I think it would be interesting if this thread could turn into some type of LSAT tutor/prep thread, if those cats who got high those high ass LSAT scores, could help people out. I would, but my ish isn't "high enough". Sorry to volunteer people, I'm just saying  ;D

Just posted this in the guys thread, but wanted to get the ladies opinion on this.  Would you follow the Rules?  Have you read the book?  Tried it?

A question for the Gentlemen:

So my girlfriend got this "The Rules" book and it's like her dating bible.  She's been talking my head off about this book for months, insisting that I read it.  Since I am seeing someone, I don't really have a use for a book that tells you how to get a man and keep him, but I am reading it for entertainment value and a few of these rules are raising my eyebrows.  Just wanted to get your opinion on them:

Rule #5: Don't ever call him and rarely return his calls. 

Rule #6: Always end phone conversations first.

Rule #4: Never meet him halfway or go dutch on a date.

Rule #13: Don't see him more than once or twice a week.

Rule #2: Don't talk to a man first.

What do you guys think of these?  Would the rules work on you or just piss you off? 

Hey, I'm sure most of us saw "Two Can Play That Game" and that silly broad almost lost Morris b/c of Rules. Basically, life is not about rules, you just have to live it and see what happens.

"Keith, Keith, I know you can see me cause I can see you"
"Step into the light Keith, step into the light!"
"Man, she got you out here looking like a 2-dolla crack ho, I gonna call your momma"

 :D

I was going to post this on the men's thread, but you guys talk about this a lot.

This is silly  :D But I watched Oprah awhile ago, (and you know what she says is Gospel  ;)) and this lady was on there dispelling myths, and the myth about the black man.......

IS TRUE

I tried to told ya'll  ;D

She said they did a scientific study (don't know how "scientific" it is re: penis size)
And Asian men are smallest
Then White men
And black men are the largest
She didn't discuss Latino men or any other nationality or race.

Hmm...not to stick my nose in, but am I the only one who doesn't think the Moderator position requires HBCU to "lead by example"?  We are all adults here.  

We'll have to agree to disagree on this one. To me, if a MOD says, "don't do this" and then does it themselves..........well then why should I follow any rules?

In my opinion, being mod means deleting or moving things that are out of place and that's about it.  It is not that serious

Exactly my point. So there shouldn't be any editing of posts, or deletion of posts that don't coincide with a person's own viewpoints

and y'all seem like you want toooo much censorship for me.  And all these standards are very arbitrarily applied.  I mean, yes - Victor gave me a hell of a hard time when I first started posting to BLSD at a time when I was feeling pretty vulnerable...but very few of you leapt to my defense!  In fact, some of you told me I was in the wrong for being offended!  And now HBCU is catching flack?  Ahhh, the irony.

There's a difference between censorship, and moving convos along from juvenile behavior. Wouldn't you agree? Or maybe not...........Maybe some people like the drama  :-\ But yes, I've defended both you, RBG, SEU, and anyone else who was new to the board, in that, we were all newbies at some time, everyone's voice should count. 

Anyway, I never sent whiny PMs to Andrew about Victor's crass behavior.  Sometimes we have to grow up and suck it up and not let something small in life (like BLSD) cause us to act like "female private parts."  If you had a problem with the moderating or the tone of BLSD, why talk to "Ole Massa" without addressing it to HBCU personally?  It's ironic that we who talk so much about Black uplift would pull that kind of ish. :-\

I actually doubt it was people from the BLSD who were sending those PM's just based on the influx of all these other posters who jumped on that thread when HBCU didn't have his MOD powers, but I could be wrong, it could have been the same people who said they voted for HBCU but didn't........................

HBCU, you can choose to read my post or not. It's just funny that now you want everything on the private end, when you attempted to blast another poster when he tried to do the same thing, and you took it to the public forum. My post was not a personal attack against you. I was hoping you could understand that, I suppose the whole purpose of my post was lost. ::sigh::  Oh well, I just felt the need to put my own personal spin on it, people can choose to listen or not. I'm not going to lead you to believe that I voted for you and I didn't, and I wanted to explain to you why I didn't, so you could see where I was coming from I felt that I owed you at most that, ......I understand the whole New New BLSD thing, and that's precisely my point, there would have been no BLSD Version 2 if for not your own violation of your own rules, however, if that won't be the case, then it's all good.

In the end, it's just not that deep.


Things seem to be on the right track with BLSD but, Mobell, maybe I should expand why I think the mod should lead by example. To me, being a mod is being in a considerable leadership position; out of hundreds of posters, there are how many mods? I take leadership seriously when it comes to my people and I consider BLSD an asset not only to black law students but also other minorities like latinos. There arent enough regular posters to sustain a whole latino board so this is it untill that changes. BLSD is my people too and I want it to always remain civil. We all joke around but I am not asking for censorship, just some cool-headed leadership from the mod in times of real strife.

Exactly. ::applause::

And as for HBCU moderating . . . . I'm totally indifferent to the matter now. Thus, I will not be speaking on it anymore.
Lets keep it moving . . . .

For the last time, this is also where I stand. Hi Victor, I missed you  :)

Therefore, I say its high time to put the past in the past so I'm extending my hand.

Can't blame ya for trying to make it right  :-[ :-\

K, must go now before 00Negro blasts me for not doing work. Hope everyone has a wonderful day, I know I will  ;).

To those who was checking for me  :)  :-*

Also when did LadyDay vote for HCBU? I didnt see her post anything in that thread.

I didn't b/c I thought the whole premise was silly in the first place. Then once I read the thread and saw some of the vile things that were being said, I realized it was not a discussion I wanted to be involved in in any way shape or form. And unfortunately, I was under the mistaken belief that the poll made by Andrew, would be taken seriously by Andrew.

2. ladyday-- I looked at the thread. I made a mistake as she did not vote for me. but, oh well....

Actually, there are also an additional 5 people that you would have to account for that did not vote for you but you listed as they did. There was a big discrepancy. Also, just simple mathematics shows that you listed 22 people as being "regular" posters, excluding a lot of people ( :() . Even then, only 9 people voted for you, meaning 13 did not. You still would have lost based on the majority. Furthermore, if we went on your original statement that only the votes of people who have been here for a year should count, then only Victor's, Ruskie's, Sands, and my votes would count>>>>>>>we voted other or no one.

::Sigh::

I guess this is all in hindsight. It's like a small scale throw back to Bush v. Gore 2000. However, at the end of the day it's not going to effect my life, so it really isn't all that deep to me. I was amused by all the "campaigning" though.

Really HBCU, I think that this is a good thing though. Hopefully you can sort through the BS and take some of the constructive critiscm in order to be a more effective moderator. I hope that you don't completely cast aside statements made from long-time posters like Victor, WHO WAS HERE BEFORE ALL OF US, as he made some valid points. Blk-reign is a wonderful person, but she wasn't elected moderator, you were. Flip the situation, if any other poster on here were mod and then their spouse started posting and they gave them mod powers, would you feel that was just? That's what Victor is trying to get across. I don't mind, but what I'm saying is that my opinion and everyone else's should be counted. Furthermore, Victor is right, the BLSD came to be b/c of everyone's input, if I recall correctly, wasn't it another poster who suggested to you that you make your original HBCU'S thread into the BLSD? Why don't they ever get any credit, and you claim the entire idea to yourself?  Please give credit where credit is due. The whole "Me, me, I, I" mentality is a turn off. I just ignore it and keep it moving, some other people really are offended by it, and you have to recognize that.

Further, you and I have spoken privately re: this board before, and in regards to certain situations, I told you that I believed you were completely justified in your feelings, however, AS MODERATOR, you are supposed to serve as the role model, leave the personal things at the door, act as a "professional" and not disregard your own rules. If you don't respect them, how can anyone else? And how could other people feel comfortable posting if you behave in such a manner? It's not about people not being able to "handle" it, it's about people being fed up with the juvenile, petty, and immature *&^% that goes on this board. It's not necessary!! So they choose to lurk which means WE ALL miss out on some invaluable info they could contribute. If I hadn't been on here way before most of the cats on here, and I read some of the things that go on, I wouldn't have become an "active" participant. Not b/c I don't have a strong enough personality to "handle it" but b/c it's just so unnecessary and it impedes our progress. So yes, HBCU, I have reservations about you being MOD b/c in some situations you are unable to control your own self, and you weren't being fair, and impartial, nor intercepting the BS. I just hope that we don't have to come to the new new BLSD version 10 in order to achieve that. Really, a mod is only supposed to delete derogatory posts, merge threads, move threads, and make sure no disrespectful conduct is going on. Let me repeat myself: It's not that deep!!

So, this can be just another "long ass post" that you and others may choose to ignore, or we can FINALLY begin to start respecting each other's viewpoints and opinions, and truly begin to facilitate interesting and useful discussions. I hope for the latter  :)
