Current Law Students / Re: liberal or conservative
« on: June 05, 2006, 10:01:36 PM »
there's so many confounding variables and differences in people that you could never lump all law students into a particular catagory.  You may have some students there for tax law and other for criminal defense which is going cause some students to lean either to left or right.  also schools in new york, philly, cali and boston are generally going to be more liberal then your schools in the south or midwest.  also religious vs. secular affiliation will play a huge role as well.  i think you're going to have a lot more conservative republicans at villanova than temple one of the major decisions in picking schools to apply to in both ugrad and law was i wanted a lack of religious affiliation because of the way my high school experience was forcing catholism down my throught so i think law students are just too diverse a group to fit neatly into one category.

I hear good things about Widener as well, and I know a faculty member of the university who has told me that the law school does not greatly concern itself with the ranking and would rather extend opprotunities to students it feels has shown promise yet may not have proformed as well on the lsat to get into temple, rutgers, nova etc than to exclude them from law school.  I know about a dozen good prosecutors and defense attorneys (major trial da's and top dollar private attorneys) who went to widener and they are some of the most well respected lawyers in the philadelphia court system.

i never bought beach tag nor seen a needle on a jersey beach in my life.  the delaware shores are a lot more expensive though.

We in California call it the BEACH.  I've never heard anyone say, "I'm going down to the shore." 

yes i'm from philly so i go down the shore, go up the mountains, put gravy on my pasta (not sauce), drink "wooder", eat water ice.  if you go to the northeast you don't go to the beach unless you're already down the shore.  the shore is the whole town, hotel, boardwalk, bar, ocean, beach.  if you go to the beach, then you're already down the shore and you're heading to the actual beach.   



kmpnj, i went to brigintine with the girlfriend.  it's right near atlantic city, but you don't get all the casino mess. it's nice i recommend brigintine.

it's primitive, i mean you can't expect them to use compound tenses or abstract reasoning, but in terms of simple concrete subject - predicate - object sentances they have about the same ability as a gorilla that knows sign language

no t4 students are unlike normal people in all walks of life, that's why they couldn't get into a top 100 school.  they don't date, drink or do anything enjoyable, they just sit around all day and commiserate about how they did bad on the lsat

you can't be angry at the school because you couldn't handle the work. you should have worked harder.  if you're as intelligent as you say, then you simply did not put forth enough effort while in law school.  you need to get rid of your blame someone/something else for my problems mentality.  Also how did you learn you had dyslexia and add at age 28 when you were in formal educational insitution, you didn't just develop these disorders why haven't you caught them earlier?
