General Board / Deferment
« on: July 11, 2005, 12:37:25 PM »
If I decide to ask for deferal, and I am granted it, does that mean that I am obligated to go to said school, if I decide to go to law school.  Or can I send out another round of apps.

General Board / Re: 14" or 15" Laptop Monitor

I have a 15.4" HP, and while it is a tad bit hefty, I personally love it.  It really is soft on the eyes.  The only concern I have is the battery life.  It's HD and widescreen, so it really eats up the battery.

No problemo, oh and for some reason the idea of taking out 60-70k worth of loans doesn't bother me.  I guess I'll realize their pain in 3 years.

Agreed with the grammar, but

1.  Depends on how much you like law, and want to be a lawyer.

2.  Depends on what your lifestyle is like now, and where you work.

3.  I would say impossible.

4.  I'm pretty sure it's 5.

5.  Yes, practice in WI they have no exam.

This is just me personally (I will be a 1L this fall too) but I would keep the cushy job.  I'm kinda in the same situation, not making as much money, but pretty much getting paid for showing up.  It's boring, but I'm sure if I was just hanging out at home, I would just be eating junk food and watching tv.  In fact I am able to do more because of work.  I can get up alittle earlier and run in the mornings, and because I'm so bored at work I love to workout in the evenings after work.  Just my opinion, but for me working keeps me regimented.  Oh, but i still manage to get hammered on Friday and Saturdays. ;)

General Board / Re: How do you become a closing attorney????????
« on: May 24, 2005, 02:16:49 PM »
This summer I am working for a big real estate and title company in Dallas and I'm not sure if this is the same thing, but the people that do closings here are not attorneys.  We do have two attorneys that do closings but the overwhelming majority of those that close just took their real estate exam.

How far is Philly from Pittsburgh?  I love to play golf but alas I'm going to Rutgers.  What course are yall planning to play?

I agree with scurvey about the environment thing.  There was like one black family in my town, so if any of their kids wanted to date, they had no choice but to go outside their race.  I think they turned out fine

I bet they didn't turn out as fine as you think.  At least some of them have major identity issues, I promise.  I grew up similarly, and I wish every day that I hadn't.  We learned to cope, of course, but it really messes with your head to always be different and to be surrounded by people who don't like like you.

Well, they seemed happy while they were in town.  They move awhile back, so I havent kept up with them

whoa they walked up to u and asked ??? :o ...unacceptable



I thought interracial dating was common until a few weeks ago when I moved to Houston. We're the only mixed race couple in the entire subdivision. And I've been asked no less than 50 times whether or not my husband is black when I'm doing something simple like shopping at the grocery store. I can't believe people just come out and ask me when they see a ring on my finger. As if it's any of their business. Anyway, this is all to say that your perspective on interracial dating is largely influenced by the region in which you were raised.

Well, I guess the part of town I'm in is so small and I definitely don't fit in appearance-wise that they all know I'm from out-of-town. So they ask what I'm doing here. I say law school. They ask if I'm working. I say no. They say, oh, is your husband black? Somebody even had the nerve to ask me how I felt having so many black people around. WTF is that?

welcome to texas
