Where should I go next fall? / Should I be considering this?
« on: March 15, 2007, 12:10:41 PM »
I was all set to attend FSU this fall; however, I was notified yesterday that Nova Southeastern was offering me a full scholarship over 3 years.  I am now considering going to the Tier 4 school over one of the top schools in the state.

Here is a little information about me, which might help explain why I am considering this:

I am 30 years old with a wife and a son.  The three years I am going to spend in law school will be very taxing on us, but we have planned on the sacrifices.  I originally selected FSU because, in addition to being a great school, it was planted in a very nice job market for my wife who will be supporting me for the 3 years of school. 

I want to work in Orlando or Tampa, but I really don't know what kind of law I want to practice.  I am not concerned with making a lot of money while practicing law -- I just want job satisfaction.  I don't need a Vault 100 job or anything, but I also don't want to limit my possibilities.

News Discussion / Homeland Defense
« on: August 06, 2004, 05:30:55 PM »
Three years have almost past since 9/11.  Do you feel safer?  How do you feel about the Homeland Defense system setup under President Bush?

Personally, I didn't see a great deal of change until I went on this deployment in support of Homeland Defense.  I hate to bring it up because I can't talk about any of it; however, the things I see and support (I am a system administrator) make me feel a great deal more secure then I felt before I arrived here.

Non-Traditional Students / LSC -- Any books for NT students?
« on: June 02, 2004, 04:54:31 PM »
         After reading some posts on this board regarding books that help prepare you for law school, I went out and bought Law School Confidential.  I spent the night reading it and it was very informative and helped answer a great deal of questions; however, it was primarily designed with a traditional law student in mind.  Almost every scenario within the book consisted of a 22 year-old recent college graduate with no wife, no kids, etc.  Of course, that is to be expected since by far that is the norm for law students. 
         Naturally, there isnít a book out there that matches the life scenarios of everyone applying to law school.  And I am sure there will not be one identical to the situation I am in; however, I am curious if anybody is aware of any law school preparatory books that are based towards the non-traditional student?
