General Off-Topic Board / anyone dreading the holidays?
« on: December 20, 2005, 10:42:09 PM »
am i the only person that wants to absolutely join the witness protection program so that i don't have to deal with my family this christmas?

my 3 older brothers are all happily married, and have children or are "trying" for them. plus they have steady careers and their own homes. great guys, except for the fact that they like to spend a majority of time making fun of me for being single, alcoholic and spoiled.

i got into a car accident today and my immediate thought was: "oh *&^%, the boys are never gonna shut up about this" - i still get called "crash" after a car accident from when i was 16 that wasn't my fault! omg panic attackkkkk.

i usually just drink until i am so drunk that i don't care, but i can't deal with the anxiety.

Studying for the LSAT / Testmasters vs. Powerscore
« on: December 20, 2005, 01:14:02 PM »
i've ruled out Kaplan because of all the crap i've heard about them.
Princeton Review is out because i used them for the SATs and the "average man" approach was irritating.

Testmasters and Powerscore i've heard good things about..... anyone care to comment?

and yes, i do need a prep course because i'm pretty bad at time management and self discipline so it'll add structure and force me to study. plus, it helps me to be around people that are super motivated and driven... i'm entirely too laid back about academic stuff, so i use those few people that are completely obsessed and nervous to give me the reality check that i need.

specify you're favorite brand of liquor or strange drink you prefer.

General Off-Topic Board / are you bringing your pooch to LS?
« on: December 01, 2005, 07:43:04 PM »
ok, i'd make this a poll but i don't actually know how.....

anyone have dogs they are planning on bringing to law school?

if so, are you planning on living with roommates? and what do you plan to do with the pup during long library sessions and stuff? 
 
forgive me, i'm a crazy dog owner so this stuff bothers me. even if LS is more than a year away.

Where should I go next fall? / difference between PT and FT programs?
« on: November 25, 2005, 11:10:26 AM »
ok, so i was in Barnes & Noble this morning drinking my Americano and these guys next to me were discussing "part time stats", are the numbers different if you apply to a school PT as opposed to FT? And, how long does it take to finish on a PT track, 4 years? What type of schools offer PT? What are the advantages / disadvantages of PT? I guess I'm a little confused because I was under the impression that the only reason to apply PT was for the sake of holding a job, not for the admissions benefits. Anyone want to enlighten me?

anyone know of any (informal) rankings or reviews of the competitiveness of law schools?

i went to an overly friendly UG without a trace of competition. and i, myself, do not possess a very competitive nature. (sadly, the only thing i get competitive about is my drinking abilities...)

i would hate to spend 3 years busting my ass in LS, and be forced to hang out with uptight peers that view me as a rival rather than an ally.

any suggestions?

anyone know anything about it?

it's ABA approved, i can't really find admissions stats for it......

it says students must have a "proficiency" in Spanish, though I'm wondering what proficiency means, the classes wouldn't be *taught* in spanish, would they?

I've taken a lot of Spanish classes but by no means am I fluent, or close to it.

whatever, i'm just f-ing bored.
