1. Owner of the company that I worked for is an SMU Law graduate. I have known her for 12 years.

2. School of Management career advisor who thinks highly of me.

I am in Beta Alpha Psi. I am not sure what it does as far as resume filler, but it gets me interviews that I probably would not have gotton unless I joined.

Here is how it would play out:

Graduate Fall 06
Spring Internship, get invited for full time
Masters in Fall 07, Finish Spring 08
Full Time Employment with Big 4 Shortly After

I am signed up to take the LSAT on September 29.

Big 4 Accounting/CPA vs Law School

Any thoughts? Pretty sure I am in with my favorite of the big 4.

I'd vote that this person has something to be pissed about. Then again, they could have a very crappy PS and LORs.

Do not know anything about your app or her app...What are your stats? What are her stats? All you know is her LSAT score.

I might be delaying my entrance into law school. It turns out that I have made the final four to one of the Big 4 accounting firms! That would be so fantastic!!!

I now have to make the decision of where to go next year.  After this trip I think I have my decision narrowed down to Tech and SMU, any thoughts?  Also, where does everyone plan on living?  The girl that gave me the law tour suggested staying in the southwest part of Lubbock, has anyone else heard this?  I found some pretty cool apartments on 82nd called The Dominion.

If you can get in, go to SMU.

Education is the silver bullet for poverty, racism, and crime. It is just a shame the problem can not be fixed where it needs to be...K-12 Education. As I mentioned earlier, a few schools in Dallas are having trouble staying open.

A thought on schools. I am not sure how it is in other states, but Texas lacks a state tax. That being said, the property owners are taking the hit in terms of school taxes. The nicer parts of the metroplex (Highland Park, Plano, Rockwall, Frisco, etc) pay the bulk of these taxes. Texas also has the "Robin Hood" effect. Money is taken from these cities, and given else where. A lot of money is being paid out, but still no sign of development. Hopefully Governor Perry fixes this, because property taxes are wicked expensive.

Coupons. I believe I read that there are numerous cities that are offering coupons to help pay for private school for underprivelaged families. Is this happening? Working?

Is the problem in the programs being offered, or is the problem in the lack of initiative and thoughts of growth within the families? My boxing coach was from Harlem. His story was that if he didn't learn what he learned to defend himself, he would not be here today. He and his family moved to Dallas to help provide a future for their kids. The kids have since moved on to the military to help pay for college.

On my commute I thought of my statement about the "strong" and injustice. It sounded very close to, "Justice is in the interest of the strong"-The Republic

Provides an interesting spin.
