General Board / Deferment
« on: July 11, 2005, 12:37:25 PM »
If I decide to ask for deferal, and I am granted it, does that mean that I am obligated to go to said school, if I decide to go to law school.  Or can I send out another round of apps.

Financial Aid / Where do you find your interest rate?
« on: July 19, 2005, 05:38:55 PM »
Wells Fargo, Nellie Mae, and Key said I was approved without a cosigner.  Now they want me to e-sign or mail the promissory notes to them.  But I can't find where they gave me a rate.  I think wells fargo gave me prime+3.0, but I can't find where I saw that anymore.  Do you have to call them to get your rate?

If I ask for a deferal, and it is granted, do they make you sign something that says if you attend law school, it has to be at said school.

General Off-Topic Board / Will the hospital settle?
« on: July 08, 2005, 12:08:23 PM »
LOS ANGELES - A California woman is suing a hospital for wrongful death because her husband fainted and suffered a fatal injury after helping delivery room staff give her a pain-killing injection.

Jeanette Passalaqua, 32, filed the suit against Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Southern California Permanente Medical Group Inc. in San Bernardino County state court last week.

In June 2004, Passalaqua’s husband, Steven Passalaqua, was asked by Kaiser staff to hold and steady his wife while an employee inserted an epidural needle into her back, court papers said.
The sight of the needle caused Steven Passalaqua, 33, to faint and he fell backward, striking his head on an aluminum cap molding at the base of the wall.

Jeanette Passalaqua delivered the couple’s second child, a boy, later that day. Steven Passalaqua, however, suffered a brain hemorrhage as a result of his fall and died two days later, the lawsuit said.

The suit seeks unspecified damages related to Steven Passalaqua’s death and to Jeanette Passalaqua’s emotional distress at being widowed with two young children.

Because Passalaqua was solicited by Kaiser to assist in the epidural, the lawsuit said, the hospital “owed him a duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent foreseeable injuries resulting from his participation.”

A spokesman for Oakland, California-based Kaiser Permanente called the death “a tragic accident.”

“Some of the allegations in the lawsuit are simply that --allegations. The legal process is under way and we should respect that,” said Kaiser spokesman Jim Anderson.

General Off-Topic Board / Unionizing Bums
« on: June 29, 2005, 04:25:25 PM »
Is this possible?  Could I go to a big city and unite enough panhandlers with cheap basic healthcare, free booze, cheap shelter, and take like $2.00 a day from each of them.  2000 bums * 2.00 a day?  Would this be legal?  Could it be done?  I'm serious any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've seen pics of Marquette's and Mich. St.'s campuses and I really like them.  I haven't seen RU's yet.  It's making my decision much harder.  Would it be stupid to go to MSU over Tier 2 RU and Marquette, I think I  might like the atmosphere more there.  Any help would be appreciated.

On their website it says that if you send in a seat deposit, you will receive a copy of LSC.  Well, I'm not going there anymore, but I sent in my deposit.  Wondering if they sniffed out that I wouldnt be attending.  Has anyone gotten their book?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Can this be done?
« on: May 08, 2005, 09:22:08 PM »
I sent a letter in to Marquette on Friday letting them know I  would not be attending in the fall.  I am sure they haven't gotten it yet.  The thing about it is, after sending it in and sleeping on it over the weekend.  I decided I made a mistake.  If I called them and told them that I really wanted to go to their school, but finances were an issue in sending my letter, and know I've decided that money is not an issue when it comes to getting a good legal education.  Do yall think it could work?
