Hey guys, if anyone here is looking for a job, you can apply to work for the search engine ChaCha. You are hired as a guide and answer people's search questions. You get paid 20 cents per response, which depending on how quick you can type, can really add up. I make about $8/hr. In 5 days, my total is at $215. And since you can work for as little or long as you want, its a pretty damn flexible job lol.

I'm sure plenty of you already have good gigs, but this is a pretty decent way to make a little extra change for gas prices, (if your like me) and online all day anyways...you might as well get paid!

But anyways, if anyone is interested and applies, it will ask for your referal code. PM me if you want to use me as a referal invite.

Any questions?

PS: This is not spam, there is NO "free money", there is no catch. If you're not interested, just don't research it any further. I just figured I would give a little love to my future law schoolers. :)

Current Law Students / Important question for current law students.
« on: July 20, 2007, 11:09:40 AM »
Concerning the financial timeline for law school, when does a student receive his loan funds? (What is the schedule?)

For example, say Joe is moving across the country to law school. If Joe moves a month before class begins, through what means would he be expected to fund the expensive moving process/month‘s rent? Credit Cards? Old summer job income? Or will the loan have been received by then?

Thanks

Choosing the Right Law School / GULC PT oddzzz
« on: December 21, 2007, 09:03:02 AM »
Opinions on my chances at GULC PT:

165 LSAT
3.85 GPA
Soft Factors: decent -- leadership role in small organization, etc.
Caucasian male
WV resident (maybe I offer some sort of 'hillbilly' diversity(?))


Also, I haven't decided if I am going to apply right after UG or if I am going to take a couple years off then apply (would have a job meanwhile).

Do you think that the couple years of "real world" experience would help me substantially with gaining admission?

My intuition tells me that, on average, the last 5 questions will be the hardest in a LR section.

Nevertheless, while reviewing my past answer sheets, it appears that I usually miss more between 14-20 than I usually miss after 20.

Does the difficulty decrease slightly on the later problems?

What is your opinion?

Law School Admissions / Quick GPA question
« on: April 07, 2007, 09:44:50 PM »
Hello all,

Quick question: my school determines GPAs on the 4.0 scale (-\+'s are not considered during calculations). Yet, I have received more than a few A+'s thus far while there. Will LSAC calculate my "new" GPA on the 4.33 scale or the scale used by my school (4.0 scale)?

Thanks

PS: Yes, I know there is a LSAC section. But, I figure I may get quicker responses here...
