I did a speed reading program as a child, and I read really fast (compared to other people).  it really helped for reading comp on the LSAT. 

I have considered doing EyeQ too.  Why not?

I think that someone giving you a scholarship has a right to indicate how it should be spent.  I also think that you will never get another one if you raise too much hell over this issue. 

Why not ask a friend who does need supplies from the bookstore to give you the cash and you will purchase them with the scholarship money?  That way, you get what you want, without ruffling any feathers.

It's not like you are going to sue your school, so I doubt legality matters here.

Try a simple google search and read what pops up.  Good luck grasshopper!

Now now, let's play nice!

Law Dog: I agree with you.  As for the comment about "being in a higher tax bracket at retirement" - how could that be if you aren't working (you are retired, right)

The whole purpose of not making you pay taxes when you deposit the money is because you would be in a higher bracket while working, and a lower one later.

Also, if you make $125K a year before taxes, you will likely own a home, which is another way to decrease your taxes (interest on the mortgage is deductible).  You might also have some children (more deductions)

I think that the good pre law advisors do tell students to heavily prep for the LSAT. Mine is an idiot (thrown into the job when the preprofessional advisor got overloaded). 

I am just saying that when something is really great, everyone knows it.  For instance, most law students (and lawyers) use Blacks.  Its a well known and good, useful product.  The rest of the stuff seems kind of hit and miss.

My bigger point is that I want in on the piles of money that get paid for stuff like this.  !!!!

This is my deal: If the plan detailed by this author was so great, why wouldn't pre law advisors and every law school tell students to follow it? 

Seems like a lot of these "study aids" are just a way for someone to make money.  I am actually going to try to come up with some for my self.  I was thinking of writing a book on using the internet to find out info about law schools and apps.   ;)

Interesting aside on this: the FL info posted previously makes it look like you can indeed be denied admission to the bar for filing a bankruptcy (in some cases).  However, the courts have generally ruled that employers cannot refuse to hire or cannot fire an employee if the sole reason is their BK filing.  (They can refuse over credit reporting issues and bad credit in general which usually goes hand in hand with the BK filing).

Bar admission is pretty damn tough!

I found these in a google search.  Try it for your state.

Um...excuse me.  This person posted because she is probably being hounded by collection agencies and is frightened and upset.  Telling her to just "suck it up and pay" isn't very helpful. Nor is the credit counseling suggestion.  50 % of those places are crooks. The other 50% are funded by the credit card companies. 

I work for a really good consumer lawyer.  If you really are serious about dealing with this, PM me.
