General Off-Topic Board / New Rule for the board...
« on: February 26, 2005, 10:50:10 PM »
I would like to propose that anyone presenting any item as a "fact" has to back up that "fact" with an actual, semi-reliable source (Rush Limbaugh and Michael Moore are NOT reliable sources).  I get so sick of reading garbage about schools, LSAT's, race, politics, etc. that is presented as "fact" when it is actually someone's opinion, an urban legend, or a random rumor.

As a penalty for breaking this rule, I think violators should be cursed to an eternal life of living in a van down by the river.

So.. the other day I'm walking along the street and bam out of nowhere I run into Salma Hayek and Halle Berry.  They strike up a conversation, tell me how good looking I am, and what a nice guy I am.  They then ask me to come back to their hotel room with them for a little "night cap".

Since I am married, was this inappropriate behavior on their part?

Incoming 1Ls / Estimate your total debt

What will your total debt load be when you graduate?  (Undergrad/grad/law school combination)

Choosing the Right Law School / $$$'s/financial aid at Northwestern?
« on: February 11, 2005, 09:44:57 PM »
Has anyone gotten aid from Northwestern?  If so, did you have all your financial aid documentation submitted?  When did you get a decision?  Did the offer come with your admission letter (I just looked through my files and I don't think they ever sent me my package)?  What was in the admissions package?

I was expecting to get at least a token gesture of money from them ($10 and a free car wash?), but haven't heard anything.


Choosing the Right Law School / Am I missing something about Harvard aid?
« on: February 09, 2005, 09:16:25 PM »
Everyone on here seems to think that they can use scholarships at other top 10 schools to leverage Harvard (or Yale or Stanford for that matter).

Do they not base all of their aid on a specific need based formula?
How can you leverage that?

Am I totally missing something?

Choosing the Right Law School / Most Meat Friendly Law Schools/Communities
« on: February 08, 2005, 10:34:36 AM »
What law schools are the best to get big steaming slabs of semi-bloody meat?

I'm guessing Duke and UNC have a good selection of BBQ.

Penn for Philly Cheese Steaks?

Pitt has those great Primanti (sp?) brothers sandwiches with the fries and cole slaw piled right on top.

Michigan has a place with Quintuple cheeseburgers on the menu a couple blocks away. (Disclaimer: If anyone goes to Michigan, please limit yourselves to no more than one of these a month.  My friend told me that he ate one for supper, then had his blood pressure taken the next day.  Both numbers were up 30 points!)

Cincinnati has the great Skyline Chili.  I'm not really sure what is in that crap, but I'm pretty sure it would kill off any vegan in a matter of moments.

Choosing the Right Law School / Penn Levy
« on: February 07, 2005, 09:44:11 PM »
Does anyone know if a Penn Levy Scholarship would give you a leg up on getting into Wharton without work experience?  Does Wharton bend the work experience requirement for JD/MBA's?

Incoming 1Ls / Digital Voice Recorders?
« on: December 04, 2004, 04:39:52 PM »
Anyone have any suggestions about a digital voice recorder?

Anyone used one designed to attach to an IPod?

Anyone used one that only attaches to the computer (i.e. it isn't a stand alone model)?  Do they make these?

Politics and Law-Related News / New Homeland Security Director
« on: December 03, 2004, 08:17:55 AM »
The new homeland security director looks like Dennis Shields' (Duke Admissions Head) older, more hard ass brother.  I don't know about his credentials, but I wouldn't want to piss him off.

Choosing the Right Law School / Why isn't Georgetown ranked higher?
« on: December 02, 2004, 06:29:08 PM »
They have a great reputation, their median LSAT is very high, and they seem to be the "safety" school of choice for folks that only apply to the top HYS CCN.  Why are they at the bottom of the T14?
