Incoming 1Ls / Re: How old will you be when you start law school?
« on: March 10, 2005, 08:37:39 AM »
If I start when I first planned to start, I'll be 20.  However, I've been thinking of getting my Master's, so I might not start until I'm 22 years old.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: best squirrels

My cousin just started at UH.  The squirrels there will walk up to you.  They'll stand on your feet and let you pet them.  There's construction going on at that school, and my cous said he saw some construction people feeding the squirrels chicken from chik-fil-a.   

Kinda sick, in my opinion.  :o

How do people just go to law school financially?  Do they live off the student loans? ...Any suggestions on how this financial stuff works?

If a person doesn't get a full-tuition scholarship, or grants, or fellowships, then s/he will have to take out student loans or find a rich benefactor. 

planejane, some loans from the federal government do not start accumulating interest until after you graduate.  I would recommend getting government loans, then getting private loans, if you needed more money.

Actually, if you, jiafei, received your degree in Computer Science from an accredited* university you should qualify to sit for the patent bar.  Also, the patent bar is not as hard as it is rumored to be, as long as you take are bar prep course, like the one BAR/BRI offers.

I recommend visiting this site:

*must be accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Commission (CSAC) of the Computing Sciences Accreditation Board (CSAB), or by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), on or before the date the degree was awarded

Law School Admissions / Re: Critique the LSAT/Law School books you have

Victor, to answer your question, I will probably take the LSAT in Oct, since I don't think I will be in the country in June.

Just curious, how many practice LSATS did most of you guys take prior to taking the LSAT for real?

I've taken at least 7: four from "10 Real LSATs," one at a free Kaplan session, one that you can print from the LSAC website, and the June 03 LSAT. 

A book is being released, approx. June this year, that will have the first ten tests administered after the last book was published.  I will buy some newer tests, for $8.00/test, instead of the new book since I don't think I need to study as much as I had in the past.

« on: February 12, 2004, 11:55:13 AM » were positively gleeful in your mockery of the posters who couldn't make it into this mediocre school...

Actually, it was not my intention to "mock" the posters. Instead, my goal was to lightheartedly admit that I did not know where Hofstra was located, even though I had heard of the school. 

Also, I only made note of my acceptance to NYU after you chose to respond to my question with a patronizing, juvenile remark. 

I never would had even bothered to ask anyone the location of Hofstra had I known you would be this volatile.

I hope you realize that I, too, was "simply looking for some guidance," but, instead, found violence.

I'm sure the Tri-Lambs are eagerly awaiting your signed bid.

Actually, if you were REALLY trying to get into law school, you'd know that only one pre-law co-ed fraternity exists in America (and you'd join the fraternity, if you were wise), and that the fraternity definitely does not have the words "Tri" or "Lambs" (or "Lambda") anywhere in its name.

feminine hygiene product...  You are probably the type of kid that I kicked the *&^% out of back in high school... female private part.

Hrmm...  rpplvc13, you seem to think that having "kicked the *&^% out of" someone is a superior characteristic that would cause I, or anyone else on this discussion board, to bow down and praise you for your brilliant domination.   :-\


Also, assaulting women is not attractive to anyone.

...your condescending attitude will not be appreciated in the real world. At all. You may get into an Ivy League law school and make excellent money in the not-so-distant future but once you move out of the academic sphere, you will meet different kinds of people.



Gee, I guess holding down two jobs {while going to college with a course overload} isn't the same as having experience in the "real world."  WAIT! Since a job is not "real world" experience, is volunteering at the local domestic violence center and animal shelter "real world" experience?  OR, does membership in two honor societies, a local pre-law co-ed fraternity, and the universities' Mensa division count as "real world" experience?

PLEASE, PLEASE, tell me IS having a job (or two), volunteering, and/or being a member of a few clubs is consider "real world" experience?  I am curious what is considered "real world" experience.



You call my attitude "condescending," and yet you replied to my question regarding the location of Hofstra:

prelaw_undergrad, Hofstra's on Long Island. You know, in that state, what's it called, NEW YORK... Please let us all know when you get your acceptance letter from Yale.

(Sorry, mods, but *I* had to get that out of *my* system)

By saying "Sorry, mods, but *I* had to get that out of *my* system," you were admitting that your response was inappropriate.

The sooner you realize that a low GPA or a low LSAT score doesn't necessarily mean a person is worthless or undeserving of mere civility, the better off you'll be.

Who did I say was "worthless?"   ???   :P


I am not trying to start a 'fight.'  I REALLY am curious as to what your reponse to my questions will be.
