General Board / Re: Living in Atlanta - Apartments?
« on: March 05, 2007, 11:58:13 AM »
Midtown along Piedmont Ave or Peachtree St. between Ponce and 14 st. is arguably the best neighborhood in the city if you care about being able to walk to bars/restaurants etc.  It is also close to John Marshall, which is on W. Peachtree at about 17th st.  Problem is that there aren't any nice apartment complexes in that area that don't cost a fortune and pro-move only deals with complexes.  Check out to find something more affordable from a private small scale landlord.

General Board / Re: What do ACLU attorneys earn?

No Jacka$$, that used to be my job. I spent 5 years in the Marines so douches like the ACLU could whine about how some piece of crap should be afforded "free speech" while at the same time those very same ACLU douches could care less about me and my buddies and what we did for them.   

Is that really why you spent 5 years in the marines, so the ACLU could whine?
Just because you served in the military, it doesn't justify you claiming that free speech rights have little value.

Do any other consevatives post here? Or just liberal wackjobs such as yourself?...i know its an aclu thread but geez.

Why does protecting civil liberties have to just be a liberal issue? 
It also doesn't really help your case to call those who disagree with you "wackjobs."

General Board / Re: John Marshall Law School - Atlanta

Hey guys, thanks for the responses so far.  Yeah I played baseball in college and really didn't take my academics seriously until my junior year in college.  I finished undergrad with a 3.0.  I also just finished my MBA.  On the LSAT though I scored a 152 - not too good but the best I could do. 

I am under the assumption that both schools, Faulkner and John Marshall are pretty much the same.  Both schools are provisionally ABA approved.  So to me it comes down to where I would want to live...either Atlanta, GA or Montgomery, AL?  I am coming from South Florida.

Any thoughts?

Traffic in atl is miserable....but if my other option was Montgomery, Id live in atl for life.

With 3.0/152 I think you can definitely do better than John Marshall.  Possibly tier 3 like Cumberland in Montgomery

Has anyone who interviewed for this program gotten an acceptance/rejection letter yet?

I hope this is a flame.  35th percentile means you are better than 2/3 of your classmates...and its only been one semester.

If this is for real, you should stick with it.

35th percentile means that he did as well or better than 35% of the other students.  It is the opposit of saying top 35%.   

State University of New York / Re: My Chances

I have no idea what the chances are w/ your numbers at UB, but you can probably get a better idea from the LSAC website than from a message board like this.  The CHIASU website also gives a good idea of your chances.  Overall, from my experience, the LSAT and GPA were really the 2 main factors that dictated my options.  The soft factors like letters of reference and personal statement really made no difference.

General Board / Re: LEEWS tapes vs. CD's

I got that impression of you from the original post. 

I did LEEWS and didn't think it was too helpful.  I did well on exams (at least the ones I've gotten back so far) but can't think that LEEWS really made a difference, except for possibly in Torts where I kind of followed the system.  Don't have that grade back yet though, so who knows.

I would bet that you call watching Star Trek marathons a "fun" time and find female Japanese animation characters "hot". Go get laid.

General Board / Re: Results are in B average...

I stopped briefing in September and don't regret it at all.  It is time wasted that could better be used by reading the E&Es, outlining, etc.

General Board / Re: B- in Legal Writing...should I cry, or is this okay?
« on: January 17, 2007, 06:52:51 PM »
Just got my legal writing grade today as well.  B-.  Not too pleased, but thank god it counts less than the other classes.  If I had to pick one class to do poorly in, I guess this would be the one.
