Whittier / Re: waitlisted at whittier law

They're still waiting to hear from students they've made offers to.  I'm sure by now you're received a yeah or nay.

You have posted this several times on the board.  Are you the author of this article?  The article is misleading in that it states that Western State is unaccredited.  Western state receievd accreditation from the ABA in 1995.   You must be quite bitter to rant this way about your former alma mater.

 :)You're an inspiration and a positive person.  I wish you'd visit the prelaw board and set the naysayers on that board (many of them haven't even begun law school) straight.

I understand it's a waste of money.  You pay over $1,000 for a 5 day briefing of first year classes.  Most law schools give you that during orientation.  Think about it:  how much do you think you're going to learn in 5 days?

Incoming 1Ls / Moving/Loans
« on: June 07, 2009, 11:15:22 PM »
It seems that most 1L's have to take our loans to cover their living expenses, etc.  When applying for an apartment how do you explain income or do you inform the landlord that you're going to pay your rent with student loans?  Also would you stay in your current home if moving closer to your school meant you would pay double the rent?  I currently live two hours away from the law school that I will be attending in the fall.  I'd like to move closer to the law school because I think the 2 hour each way commute would be detrimental to my studies?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You should probably all read this article if you're on the fence.

Seriously, if you can think of anything else you might want to do, you should go for it instead. Don't worry about the money and time you've put into preparation, because it's less than you'll spend on the schooling itself. Going with it despite having doubts is a slippery slope, since people will go since they've put so much money into prep, then stick with it once they start school and hate it because they've already shelled for a semester/year's tuition, then get a job they hate that works them like a dog and doesn't pay anything near what they hoped for when they started and stick with it because it'd be a shame to pay that much for school and not break even before changing careers, and then piss away their entire lives with a career they despise because while they've broken even they're too set in the grueling lifestyle, are too old to begin a new career, have no lives outside work anymore anyway, etc.
