Hey

I've been searching threads here and on other forums for info about housing at President Park but there doesn't seem to be much info out there. Do you any of you live at President Park or know anyone who does?

Sorry. I've never even heard of it.

Well, my fears have been confirmed.  Emory lost my application. 

It took four separate phone calls, but I finally got someone to look closely enough at my file to notice that several significant pieces of my application had been misplaced.  Fortunately it took just another few minutes of digging around before they turned up again, and were returned to my file.

Very frustrating. 
:( Sorry to hear that dude. Expect a quick response. Hopefully positive.

It was bound to happen to someone, applications (everywhere, actually) have been way up this year.

I believe the median age is 23

It's 24, actually. Or has been in the past.

Is anyone here coming to ASW next month?

OOh! I'll be there!

are you actually going to be there or are you going to be sitting in your apartment, ignoring people who knock on your door...?

Dude

1) I SAID I wasn't going to play poker
2) I was alll the way on the other side of the apartment, in the bathroom.
2b) I was busy.

John Marshall seems to be a good school for a T4.  Even in the past when it was unaccredited, they had several prominent attorneys and judges in Atlanta as part of its alumni base.  Its going to be very difficult to get a BIGLAW position or clerkship, but you can certainly become a sucessful attorney if you go to JMLS.

I'd have to agree with this.  I am looking into going here. 

John Marshall's success in the past was largely attributable to it's lengthy tenure as the only evening-program among the Georgia law schools.

I'm in @ Emory, any idea if they are offering scholarships with initial acceptance packages this year or at a later date?  Someone posted earlier in this thread that they were going to offer schollies with acceptance packages, but no one on LSN has reported an offer and I didn't receive one in my packet.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Mine came later on, via email. They come at some point after the application deadline has passed and all of the admitted students are done being admitted.

It's not important at all.

Firms tend to be very conservative and you don't get to be a crusader until you make partner... and even then.... 
Conservative about how you dress, and act... Not politically.

Having a very liberal resume is usually worse for firm life than a very conservative resume.
Highly doubtful.

When you've been an advocate for "the people" on liberal causes, you will have an additional burden of convincing the attorneys that you can stomach representing big business, big pharma, polluters, etc.
Not all liberal "causes" eschew "big business."
