General Off-Topic Board / Dreams
« on: November 20, 2005, 11:31:35 AM »
Well since I wake up every morning and diligently check the Law School Discussion Boards, I thought I would start a thread where people post there dreams from the night before. I'll start:

I had a dream where Mr. Bojangle's sang for me. He was also wearing high heels and had a US Marine's tattoo on his right leg. Before he was done singing he was shot by a tank that came out of nowhere. From within the tank popped out Ringo Starr, who pointed to the body of the dead Mr. Bojangle's and asked, "does he look free to you?"

So in short, I think I had a dream where the Beatles, well Ringo Starr to be exact, protested the Bush war. Of course, I'm not sure what all the gay references were about (i.e. the high heels and of course Ringo Starr) but I'm not going to look too much into that.

Law School Admissions / One More Safety
« on: November 11, 2005, 11:37:59 PM »
I am interested in International Law, child advocacy, and politics. My dream job would be something like...working for the UN on refugee law.

I decided to apply to one more safety school.
However, I am having trouble deciding which one.

Any opinions, including suggestions for schools not listed, would really be welcome!

So far the options: Suffolk, New York Law School, Penn St.

Law School Admissions / I lost it
« on: November 07, 2005, 09:33:08 AM »
So, in printing out all of these "certification letters" I seem to have misplaced the one to Northeastern. So my question is, is there any way to get it again, I can't seem to find it on-line, and I'm getting really worried. Also, will the law schools wait until they have the certification letters before they review your application?


Law School Admissions / Family Ties
« on: November 07, 2005, 07:57:42 AM »
On the Boston College application it asks, have any members of your family graduated from BC. My aunt did not graduate from BC, but she has given several talks there. Does this count for anything? Most likely not, but hey I'm filling out the application now and it doesn't hurt to ask.


Law School Admissions / American Application!
« on: October 31, 2005, 09:24:30 PM »

American does not ask for a seperate resume to be sent. It instead asks you to cram "activities, offices held, and accomplishments" into a very small section of the actual application. Am I missing something, is there a way to attach a seperate page.

Please help!

Law School Admissions / Class Rank
« on: October 31, 2005, 10:45:20 AM »
A couple of the applications that I have filled out ask for "class rank." I have not yet graduated, do they still want my class rank as of last year? I have already gotten the numbers (192/899), I am just curious as to whether I should put them or not.

Choosing the Right Law School / Human Rights and International Law
« on: October 25, 2005, 01:34:44 PM »
Hello, I have been doing a considerable amount of research, but I felt the need to post, just in case anybody has some good  information they would like to share.

I am interested in doing Human Rights and/or International law, preferably for the federal government. I have looked at many schools in DC and a few in NY. However, my LSAT/GPA numbers are not great, so the search has been difficult. Does anybody have any suggestions on which schools I should look into in order to pursue this field?

LSAT: 159
GPA: 3.3
Experience: Significant public interest work in Africa, Ireland, and US.
LOR/PS: Excellent

Thanks so much for any help you can offer.

Putting legal opportunities aside, what city would you most enjoy going to law school in, and why?
