langugage

None of that's going to matter if you didn't spell-check it.

calm down, my effort in typing on a forum is very different than when I write an essay that may determine the rest of my life

Lighten up, buddy. If it makes you feel any better, and as I've pointed out before, according to my resume that I sent out to several schools, I was in college for 7 years. Many others have made similar oversights. If we didn't inject some levity in the process, we'd all explode.

oh ok so you're not a real grammar nazi

cool with me then :)

Oh hell no. Diversity is diversity, definitely not just race. People write those things about every conceivable kind of diversity.

No worries.

 ;D

yeah i thought it would be fine...my work experience isn't super unique though...maybe i should have focused more on my cultural diversity....bahhh!! it's too late anyway i sent it in already.  I'm gonna have a shot of vodka

PS the german highway is spelled "autobahn"

I sent out a diversity statement to one of the schools I applied to that is my top choice.  Anyway, I started it off by explaining that my parents were immigrants and english was my second langugage.

Then halfway through I went on about my unique work experience...It flowed well but I'm wondering if the Adcomms will look at this negatively.  In other words, does diversity simply mean race?  Or can it be work experience as well?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Graphs on LSN
« on: December 14, 2005, 12:03:11 AM »
I must say those graphs are great...other than the fact that I'm always right inbetween where the nice little green dots turn to bad little red dots.

question...how do they have all those green and red dots already placed when people havent even gotten decisions yet?  I'm assuming it's based on last years data?

I gotta say though...I definitely got my application fee's worth from Brooklyn.  Their brochures are top notch...very impressive.  I actually kept it

Acceptances / Re: A proposal re: acceptance board
« on: November 30, 2005, 01:25:31 PM »
I have a better proposal...

We make the thread Titles simply the school's name.  So under Acceptances, a thread would have Brooklyn Law School, and in that are all the acceptances, another thread could be in the denials subforum and would be titled NYU, etc...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Camden NJ, The Happiest Place on Earth!

Im surprised to hear that Cali is #1.  New Jersey has the highest car insurance rates, property tax rates, pretty high gas tax rates(which Gov. elect Corzine has said he will raise as soon as he's sworn in), etc.  Its pretty expensive everywhere.  In Atlantic County, a nice 3 bedroom 1.5 bathroom split level runs about $350k-$450k depending on location.

Um, in Manhattan, a nice 3 bedroom 1.5 bathroom would run probably about $2 million

New York State in General is much cheaper than NJ as a whole.  NYC's 5 boroughs and LI are very expensive, but upstate new york's ridiculously cheap cost of living cancels that out.

Also, I was pretty sure NJ had the highest cost of living, but I know California very well and can safely say that the real estate on the West coast is almost as ridiculous as NYC, so in recent years it makes sense that California is more expensive

According to this website, the state with the highest cost of living is California.

http://www.homesweethome.com/highest_cost_of_living_nation

I think they ranked New Jersey at number 6, but where in New Jersey is it expensive besides where Run DMC lives? Sorry, I am from Cali.

Also, check out this site:
http://money.cnn.com/2005/10/18/real_estate/buying_selling/most_expensive_places/

California has 3 out of the 5 most expensive cities in the United States. I find it hard to believe that San Diego did not pass San Jose. C'est la vie. (sp?)
But again, NJ is very diverse.  Here is CNN/Money saying that the #1 place to live in the country is in, you guessed it, NJ http://money.cnn.com/best/bplive/

Here are the top 10 safest places to live in the country: http://money.cnn.com/best/bplive/topten/safest.html  NJ is in 3 of those 10.

Again, only in NJ will you find the most dangerous city and the safest.

NJ is the most densely populated state, but once you leave the urban areas and go south, it looks like kansas.  So yeah, there is very little we don't have in this very unique state

Edit: NJ also has some of the least polluted cities in the country: http://money.cnn.com/best/bplive/topten/leastpolluted.html

However, I always wonder why some random town in kansas isn't cleaner than those?  Obviously these rankings arent 100% objective but it helps illustrate what I mean
