General Board / law school environments
« on: August 12, 2005, 12:55:54 AM »
I want to go somewhere that isn't cuthroat, where students see each other as potential colleagues and not as competition that must be destroyed.

does that mean Harvard is out? what about Hastings, Vanderbilt, etc.

Could those of you attending law schools give your opinions of the learning environment where you are attending?

Thanks.

General Board / Re: bad credit
« on: July 29, 2005, 12:10:53 PM »
I am not sure if bad credit will keep you from passing the actual bar exam but I believe it may be considered a factor for a determination of good character.


In reality, bad credit is often caused by poverty and not the maliciousness of the individual. Most people don't wake up in the morning and decide to go into debt in order to hurt the credit companies. Most responsible and intelligent people, including examiners for the BAR, will realize that bad credit is usually caused by ignorance and a lack of understanding of how to manage ones money.

I.E. it has nothing to do with character. That it does is simply propoganda spread by the credit card companies.

If your going to lower Supe to his 50's corniness, you got to take Bats down to that level too.  I'm no DC comics historian, but I do know he had a brief television stint where he was played by Adam West; now anybody could beat on Adam West.  Anybody.

comics and tv = apples and oranges.

certainly the 1950's tv supes could beat teh 60's batman. yet comics are an entirely different aspect.

How does Batman getting close to winning a fight against Supes after he has Green Arrow shoot Supes with a Kryptonite arrow constitute a 'fair fight'?   ???

Brings Superman down to the realm of being able to be physically defeated. Course we also have to add in the context of Superman over time. The 1950's superman could easily get his ass kicked by many beings. the superman of 2000 or even 1990 was coming into having almost godlike powers.

Strictly Liable,

Superman is not the best superhero because he is basically impervious to enemy attack.  Batman is vulnerable; as you said, he is just a rich guy in tights.  Batman lives life on the edge.  He is also the charismatic leader of Wayne Enterprises. 

There have been comics written on the subject. Superman has few equals and doesn't need to think much because he can solve most problems through brute force.

Batman on the other hand uses varied tactics utilizing his enemy's weaknesess.

In a fight I beleive Batman would beat Superman as long as he stayed out of Superman's grip and found some kryptonite.

I suggest you get the powerscore books, study, retake LSAT.

Alright, I applied to 17 schools and the results are as follows:
Rejected:
Nebraska-Lincoln
Florida
Florida State

Accepted
Creighton

Waitlisted:
Akron
Case Western
Chicago Kent
Miami
Depaul
Saint Louis University
University of Missouri

Still Waiting
UNLV
Pepperdine
Pacific
Syracuse
St. Johns

I got a 154 lsat and a 3.2 gpa from Missouri. I am middle eastern and have had a managerial position for about a year.

My question is when am I ever gonna get accepted, if at all, or taken off these waitlists. Creighton is my safety school and I dont really want to go there. ANY COMMENTS WOULD BE GREAT.

Nebraska / UNL Law/psychology joint degree. worth it?
« on: July 20, 2005, 03:32:35 PM »
Is it worth it? Where does UNL stand in regards to law schools?
Can it hold a candle to Vanderbilt or even some of the lower schools?

What would be pros and cons of getting ones degree in NE? Would one be able to transfer out to Vandy after the first year?

I ask this because I'm thinking of UNL as a "safety". Whereas Harvard and Stanford are stretches.

To any who are attending UNL for law. What has your experience been like? have you gone to other law schools? What are your possible future employment opportunities?

Why isn't a supervisor at the GAP a real job? A real job is one that pays bills. Far too often people take @-#-$-% jobs because they need to survive and don't have the time or resources to find something better.

Besides. If you are a stockbroker, CEO, whetever then why bother becoming a lawyer?

For many becoming a lawyer is a gateway to an actual high paying career.

Traffic violations are possibly considered dumb mistakes at best. I for one do have something to worry about....I have two misdemeanors on my record. One was resisting arrest and the other was trespassing. At the time I was not provided a lawyer...I was told to plead guilty...I was homeless at the time...etc.

The reality is that there are bad laws on the books, what is moral is not always legal. Most lawyers know this and understand this. Hopefully if one is honest and non-defensive in their explanations there should be few problems.

If anything, a JD should give someone standing if they work to get rid of a bad law because far to often people are criminalized simply for trying to survive.

rant over.
