I think you'll get what law students are telling you when you get here. There are alot of things I thought I knew as a pre-law. I found out pretty quick I didn't know *&^%. Law school will humble you. It is the great equalizer for sure.

I'm not sure I would have really understood any of the material I was looking at if I had tried to prep for law school. I really don't think its all that necessary to prep. You could read cases, but you'd have no idea what you're looking for. Trying to teach yourself personal jurisdiction or future interests and estates (two of the harder concepts) would be an effort in futility.

Everybody I've talked to who tried to prep said it was a waste of their last few weeks of freedom.

I'd ask this over on the students and graduates side. It reads like a fact pattern. I don't really feel like putting alot of thought in to this right now because it's late, but it sounds like you both could tread onto the shaky ground of defamation. Of course, truth is always a defense to defamation, and accordingly the burden is on the defendant to prove truth. If you've engaged in revenge defamation, you could be subject to a counter-claim. If you've damaged him in his job, there may be a possibility of sizable cha-ching for him. My advice, move on. It's not worth the potential expense.

I often think of alot of things I never should have mentioned on my applications. I.E. - I never should have used "not enough time to complete" as an excuse for a low LSAT score. I now realize law school exams are done under tremendous time constraints, and you must be able to think on your feet. The amount of time (or lack thereof) provided to take the various sections of the LSAT test that skill. If you b-tch about not having enough time, that could be construed as a red flag.

That's just an example of one.

Now I understand where he gets his name from. Lately he's been going by the name "Heavy Hitter." I bet he had some trouble over that.

I am the class gunner, and they are all a bunch of tards.


Be nice to the tards... their daddys are partners in very big firms.   ;)

My classmates aren't really tards in general. Although, as it is probably the case at most every school, there are a hnadful of tards. But what's funny is one of the head tard's daddy actually is a partner at a big firm.

I'll let you all in on the origins of the Kentucky Hammer. The Kentucky Hammer is a personal injury attorney from Louisville (where I'm from). Those are all of his slogans under his picture. He also sometimes goes by the name "Heavy Hitter." He spends over a million dollars a year on advertising, and some of his commercials are pretty funny. As a matter of fact, he holds the coveted spot on the back of the Yellow Pages. He's the guy everybody loves to hate. There was a feature article on him in the newspaper (he's become somewhat of a local icon) where he admitted he failed the bar five times.

I could start in on you too. When I anger you, you hand me your power. I'd own you. Do you have a family, job, etc? We all seem to have enough time to post here. Does it matter what is posted? It takes the same amount of time to post hate as it does love. I don't really care to be productive here, so I've decided to just be an As-hole. I've taken enough unprovoked sh-t off this site, so I've decided to dish back for awhile. It seems to be what people do here mostly anyway.

Come on post again. Give me some fodder. I'm moving today, so I'll catch you in a week when my new internet connection is set up. I'm looking forward to it.

Hey Karl! Me again. Glance down at your keyboard.

Are you looking?


On the right and left side of the board there are two buttons labeled "Shift." Pressing either one of these keys simultaneously (at the same time) with any other letter key on the board produces an upper-case version of that letter.

Ok, now you try.

No, no. Not like that. Remember I told you to press them at the same time. Try again.

Good. Much better.

Next time we'll start with an explanation (I'll tell you what something means) of the "Caps-lock" key followed by a discussion of the various uses of upper-case letters. In the meantime, I have a homework assignment for you: see if you can find out what "Caps" in "Caps-Lock" is short for. This will be pertinent (important) to our next lesson.

By the way, you must bring a bib to our next lesson. Drooling on the keyboard is both inconsiderate (not very nice) and unsanitary (dirty). Stop mouth breathing so much at least.

I would say you're generally right about professors. They are humans after all, but my point is they do rely on a method for reaching conclusions about data that is more sophisticated than the average person's response when encountering information. Whether or not they are always right is another thing. Regardless of that, the poster challenged me to find evidence, and I did that. The main point of that report was not the part I highlighted, but that portion was relevant to this discussion. However, the main purpose of the report, which was ultimately to help the DoD meet recruitment goals, when taken with that evidence I highlighted raises an interesting implication. The military acknowledges that the qualified pool of potential recruits sees it as both dangerous and a default low paying job, so the qualified candidates with other options have opted out. The DoD is concerned with understanding these attitudes so they can tailor their recruitment efforts to attract qualified candidates and battle declining recruitment.  Unfortunately, I don't have the time to read the whole report, but I bet the statistics I cited would be supplemented with specifics. I bet you're right though, media reports do play some role in deterring educated people from enlisting. Despite the reasons, educated people still realize they have other options, and the undereducated minorities cited in the excerpt realize they have few, if any, other options regardless of their media fed opinions about the military. When one has better options they usually take them. When one does not have better options they must take the default, and for many people the default is military.

Ok, now you can have your thread back. I'm moving today and will be off line for a week, and I fully expect this thread to be dead by the time I'm back on. MSU, thanks for your points, and I envy the non-primitive way in which you present them. Good-bye Sports.
