Law School Applications / Is Adderall like steroids for the LSAT
« on: October 24, 2004, 11:28:13 AM »
Last May I took the Kaplan course.  In it, there was a group of guys I knew vaguely well and who were all consistently scoring in the mid 150s.  Then, very quickly, they all started scoring in the mid 160s.  After class one day I was congratulating them, and they told me that the reason their scores improved so much was because they had bought, and were all taking, adderall.  Toward the end of the class, one of them offered to sell me some.  Now, Im the kind of person who is generally weary about taking tylenol, so there is no way I was going to take adderall. However, I think there is a more important issue.  Is taking adderall, if not prescribed by the doctor, cheating?

General Off-Topic Board / Checkerboard Slip-Ons
« on: October 18, 2004, 10:54:50 PM »
So, after years of waiting, I finally got a pair of checkerboard Slip-Ons.  They just may be the greatest pair of shoes I have ever owned.  However, there seems to be a disagreement from my friends and family.  Some think they are great (or at least are telling me so) and others vocally say they suck.  So, my question is: Can a 22 year old guy pull off a pair of vans???

Law School Applications / Macs in law school
« on: October 18, 2004, 07:26:58 PM »
Hello.  I am getting ready to buy a new laptop and I think I'm going to get a mac.  Does anyone know of any major problems I might have with this at law school.  Are those testing softwares mac compatible?  Generally, is there a faculty pc preference?  Thanks

Law School Applications / not working for a firm?
« on: October 11, 2004, 09:38:49 AM »
Does anyone know what the job market is like if you dont want to work for a firm.  Are lawyers hired out of school to work on legal teams for big companies or as consultants?  Generally, are these positions lower stress?  Thanks

Law School Applications / Diversity, yep yep
« on: October 07, 2004, 12:36:59 AM »
I am not a urm, however i think i came up with a pretty good statement of diversity.  So, I want to send it to as many schools as possible, but not all schools ask for it.  Is it allright to just send the thing out anyway.  I guess in this case it would be an addendum.  This makes me worry, though, that a diversity addendum from a white middle class guy would look weird.  Id appreciate your thoughts.

Law School Applications / Where are these certification letters.
« on: October 05, 2004, 04:21:02 PM »
I am applying online and I keep reading that I need to sign and mail the cert. letter.  Where is this?  Is it simply the last page of the online app?  Thanks

LSAC and LSDAS / Those people on the LSAC home page
« on: September 30, 2004, 01:04:42 PM »
Is it just me, or does anyone else get tired of looking at the wonderfully diverse group of people that rotate adorning the LSAC home page?  Just wondering.

Law School Applications / Optional Question
« on: September 26, 2004, 11:08:40 AM »
A lot of the apps have an optional question that asks about the schools you are applying to.  In my case Im applying to 12 or 13.  Should I list all of these, some of these, none of these?  How does it look if I list them all or none?  Thanks
