Black Law Students / Re: Southern University Law Center Anyone???
« on: April 22, 2007, 06:11:54 PM »
I recently visited the school and the individuals I did meet were nice and helpful. The school is not in the best condition and it is right in the center of campus. I am still considering on going there but besides one apartment complex by the school, I beleive finding suitable housing will be the hardest part for me. Did you get into Howard U.? Which school are you thinking of attending?

Black Law Students / Is It Worth It?
« on: March 15, 2007, 06:42:40 AM »
Hello everyone,

I recieved my first acceptance yesterday and I was so excited. I don't know what to do. The only thing is that I don't know if I want to pratice law anymore. Since childhood I've always wanted to be an attorney. This is my second year applying so I gave up with anyhope of getting in so when I recieved my letter I was schocked. I started looking at getting my MBA from the school up the street.
I am so confused right now. Going to school would mean I would have to relocate again and leave my 7 year-old with my mother. Someone please tell me is it worth going to law school if you don't want to be an attorney? I may want to be an attorney some day down the road but right now I just don't know.

Black Law Students / Re-Applying/ Personal Statement
« on: August 01, 2006, 12:48:08 PM »
OK, so I applied to school last year B4 I received my Dec LSAT score which when I received it I was not expecting to be admitted to any law school. By the grace of GOD I was waitlisted at two schools and denied by the rest but I was not expecting much with a 139 LSAT score. After 1300$ on test masters and diagnostics ranging in the 150ís I was not worried about the test and went ahead like a crazy woman and applied to schools not knowing my fate. Well I retook in June and got a 145 no biggie and I am reconsidering taking it again but am unsure. I know I am not a dummy so I have no idea why this test seems to defeat me. Well some of the schools will accept this score but I was told to rewrite my personal statement or reword it so admissions will feel that I made the effort. Now I have no idea how to do this because my personal statement is about me and it came from my heart and it is all in all very personal so I donít know what else to write about. I can make up someoneís life and make it interesting but if they re-look at my last years file I am sure to be called a phony. I am sure the LSAT score was the reason for denial but I just want to cover all angles B4 applying again.

Well if anyone is willing to read my personal statement and give me an idea on how to change it I would be grateful.

i am about to make the ladies really mad..and i dont mean this in a disrespectful way...but sometimes some of yall just talk too much....everything that comes into your head does not have to be said...every emotion does not have to be expressed....women feel the need to do not. thats why dudes can chill for hours and not say more than like 3 words where as females get togther and all yall do is talk....not really knowing your particular situation...and not saying that men should not express their feelings...but yap yap yaping may not be how the man chooses to express himself...and maybe he wants to take time to think or cool down before he comes out of his mouth wrong or disrespectfully...

Shh**, most of the men I deal with are like this YAP YAP YAP. Sometimes I just want to chill and when I'm chillin that dosen't mean touch and touch till I get irratated. Damn where's that playstation when you need it.

Well I myself have been in that situation and it turned into a 4 year love escapade. At first we were just friends through mutual people and then it hit the fan and we were inseparable. The thing I found out is that he was not as mature as I thought he was and when it was time to let go it got violent and I felt like I had two kids. If heís mature and has a good head on his shoulders then go for it. If heís looking for a second momma then RUN. 

Studying for the LSAT / Not Again
« on: June 29, 2006, 03:12:15 PM »
Ok, so I scored a low 145 but I guess thats better than a 139 I've improved by 6 points. I am wondering shoud I retake or take my chances. I'm not trying to go anywhere fancy and I'm only going to be able to go part-time anyway. I applied to 15 schools last time and with that 139 I didn't even get into the lowest of the tier 4. I'm so fustrated and discouraged but I know I can not allow myself to give up. I won't give up but at this point I don't know what to do because I've taken testmasters twice, did all the homework and took pratice test after pratice test but when it comes to the test no matter how much I try to relax I get nervous and begin to cry by the third section. I've even went so far to try and get some meds for my anxiety but my doctor told me they could in fact hurt my chances of scoring high. I don't know what to do. Someone HELP

Change my major to Accounting.
Take time to meet my teachers for some good LOR's.

Well I'm done crying now. I missed the entire 4th RC and just guessed D on all of them. I'm debating on canceling but I really don't want to have to take in Sep. The grey goose is slowly but surly working on me right now.

Don't be so Sensitive. Would you like mommy 2 give you a hug?

What were you hoping? ???
