Law Firms / Re: Do Law Firms Drug Test?

I must correct myself, it was not SA but actually a job with the DA.. That makes much more sense now doesn't it?

I have a friend who has a friend who interviewed and got a SA position, but failed a drug screening.  Now he can't get a job ANYWHERE. 

Best bet: Quit smoking pot for a month.

but that is more of a fallacy since the higher potentcy of pot you are smoking means the longer it lingers in your system.  What I would do...

Eat only foods with a high level of antioxidants.
Drink only water.
Do not eat fast food, or anything with high fat.

Law School Applications / Re: Rejections from Law Schools

This has to be a flame. 

If it isn't - please reconsider going to law school. 

Why would you tell this person to reconsider?  Even though 141 is a bit low, it is fixable.  I would say retake the test, then reapply.  But I would be careful of the schools that average your scores if you retake the LSAT, unless you make a vast (165+) improvement.  Sometimes they also put a cap on how many times you can reapply.  Don't give up hope, I am still waiting on acceptance/rejection letters and I was rejected from my top two.  The first was a stretch, and the second was my undergrad alma mater.

General Board / Waiting....

So I am new to this, but have been reading some of the threads on general subjects.  I made a mad dash to apply, and take the LSAT this past February; beginning the entire process in January.  I did not get into my top schools, for a few reasons I suppose.  The reason I want to believe most is because I waited so long to apply, and all of the 'seats' were filled.  The second is obvious, my grades or LSAT score etc... were not impressive enough (even though I did my undergrad at one of these two schools).  I live in Chicago so you can probably guess where I applied.  I was wondering, is there any way to tell even with a little imagination if I was accepted to the other two schools I applied to?  It is starting to get annoying as I am at both a plateau and standstill with my current career, which is terribly unsatisfying.  I would not recommend studying the arts to anyone, especially music.  Anyone have any advice?  Jan. and Feb. were certainly hellish months for me, and I just want to know that I didn't completely waste my time, money or opportunity. 

Thanks to whomever made this website as well.
