General Board / Re: F Grades....Please help freaking out!
« on: December 22, 2005, 04:25:25 AM »
Yeah, I hear stories about people failing out of my school (McGeorge) every year.  Sadly, anything below a 2.30 gets you booted after one semester on probation, and I hear from friends ahead of me that the administration is not afraid to give a C or D.  Wish me luck come Jan. 6th, when I get my first semester grades...

Yeah, sure am.  Now I just have to figure out how to keep my boss from hating me when I quit without any notice.

I am still incredibly excited.  McGeorge called me at 3 pm yesterday, and asked if I could make it to the start of orientation only 3 hours later.  I am so stoked.  I need someone to celebrate with!!!  LOL

Wow, it seems like everyone around here is married. So am I the only single, non-married guy who isn't really in anywhere yet??  LOL

This is a reminder of how important "marginal" students like us are to most schools.  I sometimes feel like I should find 11 others like me, so we might actually be worth a dime :P

Thanks for the welcome.  All of this kind of makes me wish I was better at logic games (the one section I TANKED on the LSAT).  I spent 10 months working on that section.  But really, what does it tell you if I can answer the question "Jane has a green house.  Joe has a blue house.  Whose dog peed on Paco's lawn?"  LOL oh well.  If I had scored a 170, I guess I wouldn't be whining  :D

Well, I am essentially in nowhere.  Rejected by ASU, Loyola LA, Santa Clara, and USD.  Then wait-listed at UNLV and McGeorge.  I am technically in at Whittier, but with their bar passage rate, they are just not an option.  Looks like I might be waiting another year...  Maybe I need to build some sort of shrine to the wait-list gods.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Law school life?

From talking to friends already in law school, about 25% of people study too much, and 25% don't study enough.  Many of the best students come from that middle 50% range.  Those who know how to manage their time and utilize it properly.  Some people may work 90 hours per week, but that does not mean that person will necessarily be more successful than the person who studies 55 hours, but does it efficiently.

I would not be shocked to see an occasional 80+ hour week around finals, but I haven't met anyone yet who does that week after week in law school.

Denials / Re: Denied at UNLV

I was wait-listed with a 3.30 and 155.  Of course, everyone is saying that UNLV hasn't taken anyone from their wait-list in years, so I am not holding my breath...
