Current Law Students / Re: Need Advice- Character and Fitness Q's

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 don't think so.  I am old enough to be able to judge for myself what I want to do.  I have worked in a firm for 6 years already.

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.

Case Western Reserve / Money from Case?
« on: May 07, 2005, 01:21:23 PM »
If you all can let me know when you were accepted and how much money you got, that would really help me.  I haven't heard yet and want to gauge my chances of some scholarship cash.

Also, if anyone who already attends knows whether I can get more cash after 1L if I do well, please speak up.

Thanks all!

Indiana - Bloomington / Re: Bloomington on-campus housing

Did you participate in the online chat a little while ago?  There were some current students on it that knew quite a bit...

I hope they have another one soon, as the first was pretty informative, but I hadn't gotten my acceptance letter yet (I actually found out I got in during the chat), so I didn't ask much about housing. 

Maybe email admissions and ask if they can recommend someone to talk to about this. 

IUB is really community oriented, so someone is likely to want to help.
