I got into a lot more trouble than that in college and I had no problems with admissions.

Getting busted for booze is normal.  Honestly, you have to wonder about people that NEVER get written up.

As long as it does not become a pattern, as another poster wrote, you're fine.  I got written up three or four times for booze when I was in the dorms, was put on probation, and threatened with eviction.

Not one school I applied to gave a *&^%.

Don't worry.

You sound like a perfectly reasonable person.

Good luck in law school.

General Board / Re: Interview tips?
« on: August 15, 2009, 09:26:06 PM »
I've had some bad interviews, particularly during OCI.

During one OCI interview the interviewer asked me if I had any questions about the firm.

"Yes." I said.  "How many people are in it?"

The interviewer said "Let me see," and pulled out the firm brochure that he had given me when I walked in. He then began to count the pictures out loud.  "One, two, three..." and so on until he had counted them all.

It was a big firm.

I just sat there.

I still don't know why I asked that.  I really don't.

Needless to say I wasn't hired.

And I suspect, though I don't know for sure, that this may have had an impact with a couple of other firms I interviewed with later in OCI.  During one particularly excruciating interview, I walked in, sat down, and the two interviewers ignored me.  Completely.  They may have said hello, I can't remember, but if they did that was all they said.  They sat there talking to each other for fifteen or twenty minutes, and when it was time to for the next student to come in they looked up and told me I could go.

To this day I regret not getting up and walking out.  I really do.

That was a bad interview.

And everyone else reported that they were very nice, and everything went well.  So I don't know...

(And for the record, it's not like I had a bad resume.  I graduated cum laude and was on Law Review.  I can be a real ass, though.)

Don't buy a cheap bookbag. Get one designed for hiking.

If I had to do it again, I would get one with only one big pocket. The one I have now is nice, but it's divided into several pockets. That would be great if I were on the trail with a lot of small things and needed be able to get to them quickly, but they are useless when I'm lugging these giant books around. They're too small for a casebook, so they sit empty, taking up space.

I can't stress to you enough how important it is to get a sturdy bag, especially if you're going to be doing some walking. I think I spent around $120 for mine, and it has been worth every penny.

The last thing you want is to have the zipper on your bag pop open on a windy, rainy day, or have the strap break when you're running late to class.

Just because somebody took law preview does NOT make them a jackass.

I never took it, am not going to take it, and probably won't recommend others take it, but summer prep in any form does not make u a jackass. TELLING PEOPLE and bragging that you summer prepped makes you a jackass. Then again, harassing people on this board who summer prep makes you a dickhead.

Remember, if it doesn't negatively effect you, you shouldn't give a poo.

Be sure to do lots of reading comprehension practice problems before you take the LSAT.

Some 1L jackass at my school did it.

One day my buddy and I were talking to him in the hall for whatever reason, and he began to lecture us on why law professors did something or another. Like he was privy to some big secret that nobody else knew. He explained that he learned it at Law Preview that summer.

The thing was, I was actually going give him some real help in the form of notes, outlines, etc. before he enlightened us.

Don't be that jackass.

General Board / Re: Law Review Write-on how hard?

Don't WASTE any time. Take breaks if you have to, but try to spend as much time on it as you can. Every minute you waste you will wish you had back as the deadline approaches. This is one of those times where you just have to grab your balls and go.

Just out of curiosity, is the above unlvcrjchick the same girl that threatened to sue other posters because they called her a whore here on LSD?

Yall, this was too funny. Some time ago,every time UNLVCHICK (I think that was her name) posted somebody would make a comment about her being a slut. One day she announced that she was going to subpoena LSD to get the IP addresses for everybody that had done so and sue them for lible or some crap. It was this big, hilarious affair. I remember that she spoke with an attorney about the situation. I'm sure he told her that doing something like that would really hurt her job prospects, because nobody wants to hire someone that hyper-sensitive.

She was really, really pissed, and the threats she was making were awesome.

I can't remember if the thread was deleted or not, but she used to have a picture under her name. I remember that she was blond and on Law Review. And went to UNLV. If someone more technially savvy than I can find it I'm sure yall would get a kick out of it.

I bet Jacy remembers it.

Anyway, if someone can find the thread it's comedy gold.
