Studying for the LSAT / Re: Adderall for LSAT
« on: March 23, 2007, 04:30:08 PM »
I would take cocaine for the LSAT if it didn't make me want to talk and smoke cigarettes so much. 

For those of you socially inept Choads that live vicariously through an online message board, the real world and others' actions are probably going to horrify you. 

To properly deal with these types of upcoming predicaments, make sure to stress how smart and moral you are.  Indicate to other people that you know what they are doing is wrong.  And then, as previously mentioned, report to the proper authorities that there needs to be some sort of action or separate distinction against "unfair" people.  Oh yeah, and try to leave your bedroom once in a while.

When I went to the doctor to obtain an Adderall prescription, all he did was listen to my heart-beat, and then wrote my script.  It was only $14 for the appointment and $10 (w/ insurance) for a bottle of 90, 10mg, at Walgreens.  I've recently sent my seat deposit into a top 3 law school.  I hope that pisses you righteous people off.  Toodles.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Adderall for LSAT

I'm prescribed to adderall, but it makes me poop a lot when I study, so I didn't take it in fear of crapping my pants during the real LSAT.  I did have to adapt to my perceptions of the RC section not being as interesting as it was while on Adderall.  I feel crapping my pants is detrimental to my health, so I had to weigh my desired intrigue of RC sections with the sensations attributed to sitting in my own feces for a while.

With the increase of pressure, from the numerous components of our lives, from now in pre-law stage until Big Law (those of us taking this route), I'm sure that there will be an increase of people around us turning to different means of coping.  My friends that work in I-Banking say that a good majority of analysts and associates indulge in cocaine and other amphetamines, while working those 90+ hours/week.  I always heard that attorneys have one of the highest substance-abuse rates.  I couldn't find the exact stats, but this article details a little bit about it:

http://www.michbar.org/journal/article.cfm?articleID=745&volumeID=58

That first citation looks interesting, "Chemical Dependency in Legal Education: Problems and Strategies," but I haven't had the chance to look up that article yet.

Just remember, if you ever feel the need to adamantly inform everyone on a "cyber-community" that what they could be doing is bad, you are either so f'ing kick-ass that no one can look at you straight in the eye, or you are an ass-muncher.  Either way, anyone who is anybody will be fighting for affiliation with you.  Make sure to always remind the teacher that he/she forgot to hand out the weekend homework.  And NEVER forget to tattle-tale on those kids that were rough-housing during recess.  Think of Dwight from "The Office."

Law School Applications / Re: Emory
« on: March 08, 2007, 04:55:12 AM »
Last week Thursday, Emory sent me an email informing me that I was missing letters of Rec, which my University Recommendation Dept. confirmed was sent out in the first week of Jan.  I faxed them in the same day.  Then today I received this at noon:

Quote
Congratulations on your acceptance to Emory Law!  We are currently experiencing some technical problems with our student access to the Online Pathway to University Students or OPUS.  This issue is related to programming issues with your current status being properly communicated to the main university.  Please direct any questions or concerns about your file to the Emory Law Office of Admission and not to the university helpdesk.  We anticipate having this problem resolved in the next few days and appreciate your patience.

Sincerely,
Emory Law
Office of Admission

Then 4 hours LATER I received an email from them telling me that my application was finally complete and ready for review and that they do not notify people through phone or email of decisions.

I'm going to send them an email back telling them they better not be Indian-givers.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: CONFESSION TIME: Flush out the Rats!

Lara, depends if your hot or not.

Sorry that my reply sounded so malicious, I'm not usually like this it's just that I'm not used to running out of my Dark Eyes vodka this early in the morning.

I don't feel that anyone who scores below a 165 is retarded (other worthless post), but the person who first posted this message/confession thing is pretty damn retarded and needs a life.

Hey James Frey, your "Million Little Pieces," or should I say embellished LSAT or whatever the hell you are doing to make up for your ego/manhood, are in need of being cremated and scattered over your computer keyboard, inhibiting any further worthless communications on this website.   Actually I could care less about anything stupid done on this site, but acting like its your "coming-out-of-the-closet-day," and that we should care, screams of retardation.  Be proud brave man.

Oh yeah, I also have a confession:

If I end up at the same law school as you, I'm finding the tallest point on campus and swan-diving from it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: I AM SO DEAD! What should I do?
« on: March 06, 2007, 05:17:43 AM »
I always hated reading comp, but practiced enough to get my misses down from 7-8 to about 1-2 a RC section by actually speeding up my reading and then spending a little more time referring back to the passage.  I know so many people say not to speed read, bc of the complexity of the prose, but for some reason it helped me move faster, not get caught up in the deep BS of the passages, and freed up stimuli-contemplation time.

I took the Sept test, but blacked-out for a little while bc of anxiety, so I canceled it, which I regret, bc I knew I was doing fine, but just felt I could have done a little better on the RC with the extra time I spent during my stress-induced out-of-body experience.  I took about 45 preptests, so after the Sept test I was so burnt out, that I didn't even care about the LSAT and Law School anymore, so I didn't do any type of studying/practicing the 2 months before the Dec test. 

Well, I was like Peter Gibbons from Office Space when I took the real test, bc I just didn't give a F- about it anymore and it was like I was taking the test stoned on Qualuudes.  Well, I ended up reading all of the RC passages at a normal/slower reading speed and I tried to understand it all, and I got a worse score on it than I did on my diagnostic test from like 16 months before.  For some reason doing the LSAT really chill-axed killed my RC, but I only missed a couple questions on the rest of the entire test, which was the best performance I've ever had on LR and LG.

Sorry for my ramblings, I just smoked a bunch of Afghani-Black-Tar Heroin.  What I'm trying to say is that for me, it was better to be relaxed on the LG and LR sections, but I still needed loads of Norepinephrine pulsing through my bloodstream on the RC so that I could haul ass through the passages (knowing that my future career prospects were indirectly on the line).  When I was getting my highest scores, I was pretty much using my finger as a guide and just going as fast as I could, with adequate comprehension, through the passages and then addressing the complex questions by referring back to the passage based on my overall "sight" of the passage. 

Get a taste of the female without contracting and getting bogged down in her full-blown gonorrhea.  Once you feel her out (both ways), you can always refer back to her with a more safe, directed, and expedited approach.  And always make sure that you wrap it up (passage or penis) as much as possible before moving on to your next conquest, because it is much harder to come back to a difficult women with a difficult venereal disease and re-exploring her body when you are pressed for time and the female looks different (or worse) than you last remembered seeing her.

Thanks everyone!  I also wanted to inform everyone that if my message thing receives 1,000 views, I will donate myself to Harvard Law School for absolutely free.

Harvard sent me that stupid 'invite to apply so we can raise our selectivity stats, because your scores are no where near competitive for our elite law school' letter.  I couldn't resist putting this one on my credit card just to send them crap....and more crap:  In the form of words and numbers.  It is as horrible as my proposed "Why UPenn?" essay: 
Quote
Why UPenn?  When I think of all my atypical goals in life, making a lot of money is one of the most important to me.  I have noticed that UPenn Law School is in the top 10 rankings and that the average starting salary for graduates is $125,000.  I also know that approximately only 16 other schools can help me achieve this goal.  My question back to the admission staff, "Why the hell not UPenn?"

Dear Sir or Madam:
I have compiled a list of why you should accept me.  I know numbered lists are not a preferred method for essay format, but after many nights contemplating, I feel this is the easiest way for me to convey, and you to understand, why I am the perfect student for Harvard Law School!

1)   Iím not arrogant like the majority of Ivy League law students, because I know that I truly am better than everyone else.  There is no need to reaffirm this.  Acknowledging, accepting, and reminding everyone of this only furthers my humble demeanor and overall humility.

2)   Iíll be the best looking student in the entire school.

3)   I know I can drink more than any other possible student, a paramount skill for corporate law.  That has to involve some symbolic power.

4)   My parents will punish me if I donít get in.

5)   Iíll be the smartest student.  And in smarter I mean in things which pertain to many various facets of life.  Excluding academiaÖor law.  Mostly concerning things I've learned from television. I only watch MTV and BET.

6)   My faÁade assimilates.  Iím a money-driven chameleon.  I have to be a group-thinking sheep for colleague approval?  "Oh My God, we are so much alike; I was thinking the same thing."  Sycophants are cool?  Iíll be the biggest feminine hygiene product-bag-teacher-suck-up.  I have to make-out with a 7.3 lbs. textbook?  Iíll do it doggy style.

7)   I have a better personality than any other possible student.

8.   I also had a dream, just like a great American we all came to know.

9)   I have a great body.  When I work out.  Or when I go on amphetamine binges.

10)   Although I have no cool personal story involving my escape from the systematic genocide in my native country or violent persecution of my faith, one time at the local liquor store the register lady wouldnít sell me a bottle of Jagermeister.  Her reasoning?  I smelled like liquor.  This is an archetypical example of the advert prejudice that every binge-drinker buying more liquor has endured in every city, in every country, the world over.  That day I was just one martyr amidst the institutionalized prejudice of our post-prohibition populace.  What happened to Civil Rights?  I thought this was America.

11)   People tend to think I am extremely sexy.  Just the other day, this 89 lbs., old Thai woman told me I was.  She didnít exactly tell me outright, but she definitely hooked me up with extra Thai flatbread, and her eyes conveyed that ďyouíre the sexiest person everĒ look.  I knew she was right.


12)   Iíve been robbed at gunpoint and shot 8 times in the foot.  As I was seeking medical attention, a Doberman smelled the blood and attacked.  This added color and character to my crazy and extreme life, exactly what Iím bringing to Harvard.  All law schools want a diverse student body, and how many people in law school can claim that this has happened to them?  Not many.  Thatís why it happened to me.

13)   I didnít even study the logical reasoning section for the LSAT, the LSAT needs to study my logic.  Iím extremely logical; the most logical; more logical than the LSAT; Iím so logical that my philosophical theories become objective, or at least thatís why my logic tells me.  Thatís why Iím willing to go to a law school for only $150,000 for three years.  You canít pass up a money-saving educational deal like that.

14)   When I was little, my parents used to tell me that I was really smart and that I was going to Harvard Law School.  Even though now the only thing they tell me is that Iím a greedy prostitute.  And that I have orthodontist bills that are 9 years past due, which I have to pay.

15)   Iím a people person.  Thatís what the morbidly obese Romanian guy at the Dodgers game told me.  He had a gold pinky ring.  Iím sure Harvard Law School would follow his logic and admit me.

16)    Overcoming Hardships? Lock yourself in a room doing five beats a day for three summers.  I deserve to do these Harvard numbers.

17)      I'm so unique, I don't even care if other law students don't like me because of my individuality......as long as they think I have a gorgeous face.

Affirmative Action / Re: Law Firm 'Aggressive Racial Preferences'
« on: June 26, 2006, 07:43:13 PM »
Dear Ms. P,
You are welcome.  Although I do enjoy reading speculative comments online, and in fact encourage them,  just remember that your 16 page paper must not contain any speculation.  Only facts.  Objective Facts.  Concrete Objective Facts.  And then of course your own opinions and any other further subjective speculations.  I wish I could print that article out, but I went over my print quota at school because I printed out 150 fliers of my roommate making out with this one skeezo he met at a bar.  She had about 37 years and 250 lbs to her name.  If only the summer print quotas were larger, I would have printed out many more fliers.

Sincerely,

nicknaylor

Affirmative Action / Re: Law Firm 'Aggressive Racial Preferences'
« on: June 26, 2006, 07:13:22 PM »
I was the original poster of this whole discussion thing.  As I have not yet had the time to peruse through Sandersí full article (68 pages), I will restrain myself from adding any comments, for they will lack any form of cogency (plus my mom just called me and told me that I am mentally retarded).  BUT I want everyone to know that many of his articles, critiques of his articles (already including the firm-related one), and his rebuttals to critics can be found here:

http://www.law.ucla.edu/sander/

Since his most significant articles range between 30-110 pages, I am expecting everyone on here to read them in full, along with any supplemental material, and then summarize it for me in exactly 16 pages (and then explain to me what my emotional reaction should be, or any other thoughts therein), for I am too lazy to read or think myselfÖÖÖplus you will help me circumvent staring at a bright LCD screen for hours, thus preventing the degeneration of my retinas.  Your work will pay off for me in the long run.  Trust me.  Thank you.  (I prefer formatting according to the Chicago Manual of Style: 15th Edition)  The winner of the best 16 page summary will win my daily planner, which will need to be replaced during the first week of August 2006 (academic format).
