This goes on constantly at my undergrad b/c they don't have enough advisors for the whole student body so people guess "wrong".

You may not see the merit in it, but others do. Getting a top job at a big firm and being able to put it on your resume when you go to get the job you REALLY want means a lot to some people.

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!

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.
