General Off-Topic Board / Re: Poorest meals you've ever eaten...

The lunch here (ironically) was lifted directly from the breakfast club, with tortilla shell replacing the bread. I know, because I've done this too. CapnCrunch on bread, with a tad of sugar and then placed in the microwave for about 10 seconds is a delicious treat.

I am not kidding. I've eaten this, too.

Ahh hah! It is true - dinner was not my idea. I decide to try out this bit of cruisine genius. Lip-smackin' good!

Hotdogs? Mac-n-cheese? Tuna? Surely you jest! Did any of you acually go to college? These appear to me as kingly feasts. I turned the "art" of frugal eating into a true college EXPERIENCE. Here was my menu one day prior to exams:

Breakfast: Cereal - now I know what you are thinking, "how can cereal be a poor meal?" Well, I didn't have any cereal so I had to use Wheat Thins. That alone would probably be enough to vault me into the hallowed halls of poor-mealdom, but it gets worse as I did not have any milk either. So what does a poor college student do? The obvious replacement for milk is beer. That's right, I put Wheat Thins in a bowl of beer (Natty-Ice at that) and called it cereal for breakfast.

Lunch/Supper (Slunch?): I felt like mexican for dinner, so how praytell did I satisfy my nagging desire for a burito? I took out a borito shell (I know, this is sounding much tastier not to mention less poor than breakfast already) and due to a lack of meat, vegetables, or anything else edible, I decided to add that great meat substitute known as Captain Crunch. Now I know what you are thinking, "If you had Captain Crunch, why didn't you eat it for breakfast?" This was a noon-time gift from a roomate who did not have an exam th next day and decided to go buy me a box of cereal after watching me eat "breakfast". Unfortunately, he didn't get me anything else, hence my CC burito. To top it off, I emptied about 3 pixie sticks onto the cereal, rolled it up, and crunched away.

No THAT is a couple of poor meals.

You libs sure do love tolerance don't you? Absurd...

Law School Admissions / Re: Hofstra Application

I didn't mean to sound snobby in my mast post. Hofstra is a fine school (although DOWNY might disagree and call it a TTT since it is not T14), but it just seemed too easy to get in seeing as how my file was complete AFTER to deadline.

I applied to Hofstra last year in March and got in with a half scholarship. Unless you have really low numbers, I wouldn't worry about your admission chances. You can probably fill out the app in crayon.

Thanks - It's VA, or IN, or CT, or MA, or TN, or bust. Anywhere but here. I commute from Hackettstown to Piscataway everyday. It sucks major balls and is definaely the prime contributor to my hypertention. What I need is a nice, relaxing trip back to school.

I'm not expecting law school to be harder than engineering  8)

hey you're an EE at rutgers? did you graduate this past year? crazy i never thought i'd find another rutgers engineer on here.

Yup - EE from RU. I graduated in 2001 and I'm STILL trying to get out of this God forsaken TTT of a state.

The reason that Chiashu and LSAC percentages match is that Chiashu uses the formula from the LSAC calculator web site. I think you should look at LSN too in order to get a good idea.

Ahhh.. Gracias for that explanation. I feel a little less confident now so I wish you hadn't pointed that out to me but thanks.  :P

Law School Admissions / Re: How many schools to apply to?

The CW is 9; 3 safeties, 3 target, 3 reach.

I think that 3 safeties is a waste of money. You probably don't want to go to these schools anyway. I chose 2 that I will get into unless something goes horibly wrong. I would expand the target range to include 2-3 more but I think that the reach should be 2-3 to give yourself a good chance of a top school.

I think that is a good breakdown, but I'm wary of the probab. charts... I'm confused how chiasu, lsac, aba, boston, and whoever else I used, could have such varying information - and all based on whatever LSAC figures your GPA and LSAT score are ;) if you're interested in a specific program, such as public interest law or jd/mba, the probab. could change too. just something to keep in mind    :D

The Chiashu percs actually fell within the ranges that the LSAC calculator gave me so I feel good about the numbers. Since most applicants are similar to me (looking for JD only, normal amount of ECs, WE), I am pretty content to go with these numbers.
