General Board / Firm Social Life: Necessary Sports Knowledge?
« on: July 13, 2008, 11:41:21 AM »
I'm going to make a confession here: I know very little about Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and the National Football League.  I tend to prefer college sports when I watch or view go to a game.  However, I tire of not being (at least a little bit) knowledgeable about the major professional sports leagues/teams.

As professional sports tend to be a common topic in firm life I'd like some suggestions on places to learn more about professional sports and common topics related to them.  I realize that ESPN.com is a great place to start, but I feel like my eyes are being raped when I look at their webpage; it's simply so much information at once. 

I realize that some of these questions may sound childish, but I didn't really grow up in a heavy sports environment.  Soccer was really big in my high school, and my undergraduate school didn't have a football team.  The law school that I will be attending has a football team (a pretty good one), and like I said, I know a good deal about college ball.  However, when I start doing firm interviews and someone asks me "Yankees or Mets?" I want to be able to at least bull a little bit about the teams. 

With all that being said, is it more common to have one team that you know everything about, or a general knowledge of the league?  I assume it is similar to college ball: you have a team you really like and you know which other teams you really want them to kick the poo out of.  Also, some favorite players (ex. White and Slayton for WVU), some least favorite players (White and Slayton for WVU), and what they are known for (running the ball and then dropping it, constantly).

If all this is too general then just some advice on where to start a little bit of research would be awesome.

Thanks!

General Board / Law Preview - Yes or No?
« on: April 30, 2008, 03:39:41 PM »
I'm interested to find out if anyone used Law Preview (www.lawpreview.com) prior to law school.  If you used this program, do you feel that it helped you prepare for (do better in) law school?

I am coming to law school with an undergraduate background in Biology, and I (IMHO) have very little experience with the law/political science.  I am used to studying genetics and plants.  Based on your experience, will this program help me attune to the study of law?

Any help would be much appreciated.  I will do my best to pass on any information that you can provide.

The thread topics display remarkable insight into the mindís of the idiots that populate (polute?) the internet.

Discuss.

Law School Applications / Job?
« on: January 23, 2008, 10:39:48 AM »
Anyone have advice/links to advice on what kind of job to get for the summer? 

Lawyer Offices don't usually hire people before 1L. 

So I've been trying to think of a job that'll make Adcoms smile and giggle...

All I've come up with so far is work at a non-profit and starve.  Needless to say, starving is pretty weak.

Studying for the LSAT / Can someone clear this up for me?
« on: October 18, 2007, 07:39:44 PM »
I'm sure this question has already been answered, but I'm tired of wading through the "LOLWTFROXXORZMYSKORIZIN" bullsh!# posts to find an answer.

The "Score E-mail Date" listed on https://os.lsac.org/Release/AccountStatus/AS_LSAT.aspx is the date that we will be e-mailed our scores, correct?

If so, it will mean that I'm just going to ride it out and wait for an e-mail.  I'm tired of checking the LSAC website all the time.

I appreciate the help, and I wish everyone who gets a lower LSAT score than I do the best of luck getting in to school.  *chuckle*  Kidding. 

Maybe I'll be finally able to wear my "Coolest @ Cooley" members-only jacket.
