Incoming 1Ls / Re: Diabetes and law school
« on: June 08, 2007, 08:08:20 AM »
Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I don't have diabetes but it runs in my family. I also know a mba student with diabetes. Diabetes is a manageable disease. Eat well, exercise, monitor your levels, etc. and for the most part you'll be fine. It's when you don't take care of yourself (like being overweight, unhealthy sugar levels) where you can cause other health problems.

As far as stress is concerned, I'd imagine structuring your day to include an appropriate time for studying, exercise, eating well, and rest. If you have a schedule planned, it'll be easier to stick to it. I'm going to get a locker and leave things like nutrigrain bars, juice boxes, and non-perishables. Check the size of the locker and get a cooler. Buy a few reuseable ice packs and take one everyday to school. I'd say it'll keep you lunch cool but if you're on campus for dinner have soup or snacks to hold you over til you get home.  I'm bringing soup and stuff too to microwave and a bunch of bananas to have a banana a day. This will help eat better as well as save money on fast food.  Hope this helps.

Law School Admissions / Re: Apply now or next Fall?

I'd suggest looking at lawschoolnumbers.com or lsn as most call it here. Look at last year's cycle for the schools you're considering and see how many were accepted if applying in Jan.

Dig around the school's website. Did their bar passage rates go up compared to last year? Did they build/renovate a building recently? If you can make those good things apply to you do it. Like if the school is close to home you can stay at home to focus on studies or affordable tuition is a concern since you're the first to go to grad school or something.

It's a group legal ins. company. I'd rather not focus on the company itself, but my skills. I am thinking about mentioning a specific person, their predicament, and how I assisted that person.

So, I don't want to whine about my parents divorce, childhood in poverty, because things weren't that bad.

I like the Montauk option of discussing your current job. I work in a call center at a legal insurance company. I wouldn't plan on rehashing my resume. I'd like to note the skills needed to perform the job well (communication, analytical, etc) and importance of attorneys.

Many of the schools I am applying to specifically ask for influences for law school.

Go? No go?

I'm applying to CSU & Akron. I finished my undergrad at CSU from 04-06 (transferred form OSU)

Could someone read my conduct addendum? Silly antics my freshman year in the dorm. I was the only one caught and kicked out of a program.
