Non-Traditional Students / resume question
« on: July 19, 2007, 02:16:42 PM »
i am trying to de-technical my resume for law school. i've only chornicled my work experience back to 2003 (i got out of the marine corps in 03 so i just put everything i did there under 98-03) problem is i've had several jobs since then. i was a government consultant so even though i technically only worked for one company, i did so at several different government agencies, so it's kind of hard to list it all as just 03-07. i've trimmed my it down quite a bit but it's still a full page. basically i have my candidate for JD at the top, my BA under that and a full page of work history. is that too much? how did you guys handle your resumes? i mean i'm 34 just my work history from '98 on fills up more than one page. any suggestions? i'm trying to find a way to put all my military/governement stuff in one section. i mean most of what i did is in government classifed speak. it's not like anybody outside of that career field will be able to decipher it.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / child support
« on: July 18, 2007, 05:46:45 PM »
i know a woman who recently took the father of her child to court and sued for child support. before she took the father to court the dude was taking care of the child i.e. paying tuition, buying clothes going half on the braces etc. etc. but he was exchanging money getting the bills, etc. through the child's maternal grandmother because he didn't want contact w/ the mother because she would always cut up. now that he has court ordered support he only does what the court ordered him to do, which is less than what he was doing before. anyway my friends and i are having a debate and it's pretty much split down gender lines. our/the male point of view is what sense does it make to take the man to court for child support if he's supporting the child? the women are pretty much for it. thoughts.

Non-Traditional Students / Financial Aid question
« on: February 22, 2007, 12:45:14 PM »
some schools i have applied to want my parents financial information. im 33 i haven't lived w/ my parents since 1991. I've supported myself since 1995. my parents are not about to give up their financial information. the school asks me "am i estranged" im like no their just not going to do it and i dont know why i have to ask. any financial aid decision that you make will have to be made from MY financial information, my parents finances are irrlevant. have any of you had this problem?

Black Law Student Discussion Board / 1st Acceptance????
« on: November 03, 2006, 07:44:16 PM »
If I got a phone call from a law school (PM) me if you wanna know which one asking me to call the admissions office is that a good sign. It's from one of my reach schools, my application is complete and I doubt they would call me about something missing anyway....

Make sure you vote NO to affirmative action. the law is worded so that if you vote yes you are saying that you want to get rid of affirmative action. i can't remember the exact wording but it says something like affirmative action provides these benefits to these people do you want to get rid of this program...they know black folks dont read so they are hoping everyone just checks yes PAY ATTENTION...dont let Plymouth Rock land on you...
