Take a remedial writing course.

I'll go ahead and venture a guess that a fair deal of depression -- diagnosed or not -- was in fact responsible for your failure the first time around. If you can make a case that you've done a good deal of "work on yourself" in the time since -- that you've grown as a person, learned from the mistake and overcome the problem -- I'll bet you'll be given another shot.

Nothing you read now will help. Just enjoy the summer. Hell will start soon enough.

Jew scammers at Roger Williams law school admit to lying about employment rates and even salary statistics but they won't do anything about it.  They also admit the school hates blacks and poor people.


How can there be any discussion with this idiot? Take your bull elsewhere, asshat.


I'm starting law school in a week or two and I feel a bit nervous about it -- I am 38 years old and most of my classmates will be 22, straight out of college. Do you think the 16 year age difference will be an issue? (I'll be a full-time student)


If you'd be going PArt time it'd be absolutely no problem, the typical student is close to 30. One thing is for sure -- it is wiser to go full time.

Conceivably better if one's situation allows? Sure. Wiser? Not if it's impossible.

You'll soon realize that law reading is not like any other type of reading you have ever done before. Just one of the ways that it is different is that it takes much, much longer to work your way through the material than you are used to -- especially at the beginning, when you don't know what is and is not important within the text. 10 minutes a page is about right, probably longer at first as you struggle to make sense of it all.

Long story short: that 18-page assignment will take you roughly three hours to complete. Multiply that amount of time by your assignments for other classes and realize that your plan will have you spending an awful, awful lot of time in the library.

Just adding my voice to the chorus. I'll be 37 next week and just finished by first year as a part-time evening student. It's alot, combined with full time work, but the grades are good so far. Definitely worth it.

If you go to Wisconsin and plan to practice in-state, you also won't have to take the Bar exam.
