Current Law Students / Who Can Relate?

Just read this article.  Poor 1L had his apartment robbed.  The robber ended up getting beat up after he demanded the laptop.

Oh, well, the good news for you is that there is no age of consent in the U.S.  Feel free to fornicate with anyone you choose.  If anyone asks, tell them someone who is almost a lawyer told you it was OK.  That should cover you.

The bottom line is a 170 will get you into almost any of the top 15 schools regardless of your GPA

This is pure comedy gold.

That is a fantastic show

Did you see the last episode?  This season keeps getting better and better.

Yeah, but it's entertainment, and beats studying.


Especially since I dont have a TV to distract me 

Oh and Tim... come to Penn!  That is all. 

No TV?!  How?

You live in Philly and you don't watch It's Always Sunny?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: for all that bomb on RC

Anyone that has the capacity to actually be a good lawyer should be able to be good at RC right off the bat  ::)

No. Reading comp can definitely be improved through practice.  Besides, you're a flame, why are you posting in legitimate threads?

You sure seem to come across as a smug little sh*t quite often on LSD.  You're probably a little prick in person too.  Wonder why your social life sucks?

You're a tax attorney?  I was surprised how much I actually enjoyed Fed Tax. Going into it, I was dreading the class, but we had a really good prof. who did a great job teaching both the Code and the policies. 

Current Law Students / Re: Law Schools To Avoid At All Costs!

"The Florida market gives almost no advantage to T14 schools.  Biglaw, yeah, there is a little leg up there. But from what I've seen, interviewers are more likely to be impressed by kids who know Gator football than those who go to T14s."

A little leg for Biglaw?  Gimme a break lol.

Also, $80k is chump change and not worth the cost of law school.  You can make that in Government without a law degree....

I've already pointed out that 80K in FL is a lot more than in other states. But let me also note that tuition at UF law, last time I checked, runs under 10K a year for in-state. (And its easy for out-of-state kids to get in-state after a year.) So the "not worth the cost" argument doesn't really hold for many students attending UF/FSU.

Not to mention that you may actually have your weekends off, and be surfing on a Sunday (rather than reading contracts for typos)... Gasp!  What fun would that be?

I'd take $80-100k in Florida over $140-160k in New York. It all depends on what you want from you J.D.
