Here hoping Miss P  ;)

So LGBT isn't  thriving so much at BLS I take it. Any student orginizations, Functions etc?

No, seriously, there is a very active LGBT student group, and the campus is very queer-friendly.  That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to see some more LGBT ladies around.


We also have very good pizza at our meetings.  And we do dorky things like go bowling together and stuff.

Nice!

BLS will throw you big money if you play your cards right, ladylegal.  Get a Cardozo acceptance under your belt and work them against each other.  I bet you get in at Fordham as well, but you'll get the most money here.  Plus, it'd be so nice to have some more LGBT folk around.

This a great post. BLS is def on my list of contenders. I'm a URM with a 162/3.1 UG and 3.5 G. I'm hoping to see some $$$ from NYC schools. I'm originally from Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights is top notch in terms of neighboorhoods. I just received some diversity mailings from BLS with a copy of the BLS notes... I have to admit I was impressed with the work BLS did for the hurricane Katrina victims... made me feel all warm and fuzzy about being a lawyer. I stop by the admission office and boy were they friendly... with that said Fordham was pretty friendly to me as well...Cardozo not so much...Columbia was snob central... NYU let's just say I heart NYU... but that because of the LGBT love I feel.

With that said I'm all about BigLAW and I'm heading where every will get me there the smoothest.

Thanks to cannotpick and miss P for all the great insights. ;)

What happens when there no longer a common ground among friends? When your paths in life are so far apart there just nothing left to talk about? Have you ever felt gulity after rant and raving about your goals to here a response of silence?

Anyone else in a similiar situation?\

Just wondering...

You get arrogant about how you're going to law school and hence doing something with your life. Then you drop little hints about how your life is going to go well for you and how by comparison, your friends aren't doing nearly as well...  ::)

Partly true...I am arrogant at times but I've earned it and I'm not even in the thick of it yet  ;D. My best friend is currently at Yale-Bridgeport studying anesthesiology and while her studying keeps her isolated for the most part when we get together things just click she chasing her dream while I'm chasing mines. My college roomate is currently NYPD and we chat here and there but nothing with depth. My other close friends are either married have kids or both. I feel out of the loop with them.... quick story

The other day we were hang out at my college roomates place and the conversation turned to having children. Without much thought I said "hell nah...not for at least seven years" just does fit in well with my current goals. Needless to say my friends with kids immediately went on the defensive...I felt like a totally a-hole but I wasn't sure why.

I know people grow apart and circles change but there something priceless about toasting it up with those who came up with you.

A news anchor was talking about a child molester being caught and all of a sudden it switches to what seemed like a protest and then a cardboard cut out of Barack Obama was flashed.....keep in mind he in no way shape or form had anything to do with the news story....It was a blatant attempt to associate him with a child pedophile... Sure they'll chalk it up to being a technically error but we all know what the deal is...
