General Board / Research on salaries
« on: February 01, 2007, 11:36:47 AM »
I posted this also on the pre-law board.  I have been doing research for one of my first year profs on the legal community, and along with legal education.  Recently, I have been doing work regarding salaries, loan debt etc...  I have found some stats on salaries.

Doing research for a professor over the past few weeks, I have come across interesting statistics compiled by the Labor Department regarding salaries of attorneys.  While these stats do not show beginning salaries, it is interesting to note that attorneys do make 6 figures, but on average they are in the low 6 figure range. http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes_nat.htm#b29-0000

I also found an interesting article that studied new attorneys over a 10 year period to see how things faired.  It is interesting to read.

Aaah, just when i thought i was happy with possibly going to Syracuse or Dickinson, Seton Hall pulls out with an acceptance into the part-time program.  Any thought?  Should i attend Seton Hall part time, or go full time to one of the others?  I am torn!  All three have their advantages.

I've been waitlisted at a few places (Richmond and Catholic), but I need to make some type of decision.  I have it down to Penn State or Syracuse.  Which would you choose?  I really need info on Syracuse, since i know so little about it.  But what are the pros and cons of either.  Feel free to say whatever you'd like.  Thanks!

General Off-Topic Board / Happy Birthday R.E.M.

I know some of you are too young to appreciate such a great band, but 25 years ago this month REM launched themselves onto the music scene.  They began by playing a birthday party in Athens, GA.  Although I am almost too young to remember the days when they could fill up a stadium in the United States, they are still touring all over the country and the world.  They have never compromised or sold out to sell albums.  They still beat to their own drum.  They are my favorite band, and I decided to write this little tribute to them.  So thank you Michael Stipe, Mike Mills, Peter Buck and the retired Bill Berry for your wonderful music.  Here's to hoping for many more years of your musical talents.

I am weighing some options at this time, but Penn State Dickison is a possibility that i am seriously considering.  There is no controversy in my eyes, only people on these boards who think they know what they are talking about.  However, I am off topic.  I like Carlisle, small towns have their appeal.  Who is considering going?  Or who is actually going, since the April 11th deadline is fast approaching?  Plus give me your impressions if you have them, and enough of the two campus system.  give it a rest people.

Where should I go next fall? / Penn State Dickinson?
« on: February 27, 2005, 08:45:02 PM »
I was just accepted to Penn State Dickinson.  Now, I hate living in large cities, so that does not bother me, but I know very little about Dickinson since I live outside of PA.  Can anyone give me some details about the school?  I will be visiting soon, so I will see it for myself.  Any thing anyone can say about it would be great!  Thanks!
