Current Law Students / Re: LAW SCHOOL, YUCK!
« on: October 01, 2005, 08:09:45 PM »
I thought that a school, if you are a full time student, would not allow you to work during your first year. Mine does not. Further, it was my understanding that this was an aba "rule."

How I see it; Take out loans. Don't work. Your grades will be better as you will have more time to focus on school and then you can get a better job later on (because your grades were better).

err...brief it yourself. You need to learn some time

Current Law Students / Re: Parking at ASU
« on: July 07, 2005, 07:45:04 PM »
I did my undergrad at ASU, just graduated 2005, and yes, lot 59 is "far," but not that far. You may want to contact Parking and Transit services at ASU/look at the website and try to get a closer spot in one of structures. There is a strcture in lot 59, it is #7. While you would have to park "in" lot 59, your car would be covered and I think if you try hard enuf you can get a pass. Trying hard entails looking each day and seeing if there are any openings any where. I would not settle for Lot 59 just yet.

I had a structure one pass that my sister "handed" down to me. She was a senior while I was a freshman. If you can find someone who has a structure pass and will be graduating you can go down to parking and transit services when they "hand in" their pass and then you can get the spot as soon as it comes open. At least that is what my sister and I did; as well as many friends. This may help you for second semseter and 2L and 3L. There are also many businesses around the university that will sell you a parking spot in their parking lot for the semester. You may want to inquire at the surrounding places and see if they have any spots.

Current Law Students / Title IX & Women in Law School
« on: July 06, 2005, 01:01:49 PM »
I read an article today in the Wall Street Journal that discussed Title IX. Since 1972, when Title IX was passed, the number of women who attend law school has rose from 8,914 in 1971-72 to 65,701 in 2001-02. The number of men who attend law school has decreased from 85,554 in 1971-72 to 69,390 in 2001-02. I found this interesting, and thought I would share; I am bored.

So does that mean that there are ~44,000 people graduating each year from law school? Going to go look at the ABA site.

I'm just going to give a broad answer and say that it's a part of corporate law.

Why not give a straight answer to what you want to do? I am uncertain of what type of law I want to work in, and if you could, would you please share more about this part of corporate law you mention. If not, no worries.

It is my understanding that Cal Western does not have a UGRAD program. Oh well, I have a question. I am on a waitlist at a few schools still and am in at Cal Western. But I think that I am going to be going to Cal Western. I have come across articles that state that Cal Western is now affiliated with UCSD as well as SDSU in a manner that allows people to get dual degrees and access to more services. I am too lazy to find the articles right now, but if my memory is not failing me it is a relativley new affiliation; 2002/2003? Does this mean that a rise in rankings is a possibility in the near future; as in the next three years.
I really like Cal Western. Good location, schools established since 1962, from what I can tell  prof.'s and buildings (I visited) are just fine. It is a little pricey but the way I think about it is why would I not take out loans to secure my future (im 23), even if I don't get a great-to-die-for-job right away it is not the end of the world (althought it would be nice to get a great job from the get go) Well, thats all I got right now.
