Incoming 1Ls / University of Pittsburgh Classes
« on: July 25, 2006, 04:41:43 PM »
So I just recieved a list of my classes, class times, and profs. Just thought other incoming students might want to post their sections and start a dialogue. I'll post mine as soon as I find out what section I am in (They say it is in an e-mail, but I don't think I got this e-mail...huh).

Financial Aid / Scared to death
« on: July 06, 2006, 08:13:48 AM »
So as the law school year approaches and the loan process becomes more visible, is anyone else becoming very very scared? Is anyone else wondering if they should have chosen the "less desirable" school that was willing to give more money? Is anyone else thinking about getting good grades and transfering to a lesser school for a full scholarship?

Does anyone want to send some words of encouragment?

I'm trying to decide what to make for dinner tonight. What do you people eat out there?

Incoming 1Ls / Types of Law
« on: May 11, 2006, 02:12:40 PM »
Sorry if there is a similar thread out there, but looking briefly I saw many smaller scope threads, but none like this..

I thought this might be a good place to discuss the day-to-day life of a lawyer in various types of law. There are many people on LSD who work, in some capacity, with a particular type of law and it would be helpful if these people posted some comments on what they deal with, particularly those who deal with the more obscure aspects of law. The reason I posted this is because I will be attending the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and, although I am intersted in doing International Human Rights law, I would like to learn more about PITT'S well regarded health law program (what kinds of things can be done in the health law field).   

In summary, I suppose this is a thread for people who want to learn about different types of law, what they can do with their degree, and simply rant/try to figure out their future as a lawyer.

General Off-Topic Board / DC Rally
« on: May 01, 2006, 05:36:22 PM »
Just a quick message to say thanks to those of you who made the Darfur awareness rally in DC this past Sunday. I was encouraged to see so many people, particularly young people. It is good to see that young people are making themselves aware of issues such as this, that certainly can't hurt for the future. Of course, it is discouraging, seeing as no real action has been taken and we just took a step backwards by cutting money for food in half. Nonetheless, I was glad to see so many people, there were not this many people who knew and cared about Darfur a couple of years ago. Still, awareness is useless if it does not lead to action, so keep it up!

I couldn't seem to find a better place to post this, please direct me if such a place exists.

I started this thread for People who have decided to attend the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. I think it is a good idea to have a thread where potential classmates can meet, discuss anything and everything Pittsburgh, and perhaps even find roomates.

General Off-Topic Board / Volunteer Work
« on: April 10, 2006, 06:36:00 PM »
So, I am working until the start of law school, however, I am feeling the desire to do some volunteer work. I have done a lot of work in the past, mainly in Africa and Ireland, and I am looking to do something again in the next few months. The problem is, all of my money is going toward school right now and I really can't afford to pay to do international volunteer work. I do a lot of stuff around here right now, but I was hoping that someone might know of an organization that will allow you to volunteer for a couple of weeks at no cost. Thanks.

Sorry, I know these threads are despised, but I'm looking for all the advice I can get.

I want to eventually end up in DC and practice human rights law. My ideal organizations include, USAID and the UN. I know these organizations are extremely difficult to get into, thus it is my eventual career goal. Anyway, if anyone is attending these schools or has some good information I would love to hear it. Thanks

By the way:

UPITT: $6,000 scholarship
Chi-Kent: None thus far.
Penn St.: $18,000 a year.
