A lot of Ad Hominums flying around this post, I thought future magistrates were supposed to be akin to the art of argument, and not fall prey to logical fallacies

Florida, please for the love of GOD relax man!  Don't make a federal case out of what Erapitt says.  I can see the smoke rising off your keyboard as you furiously type a rebuttle.  It's not worth getting all bent out of shape.

You know, Latin Lord Aside, I agree with what Erapitts trying to say.  I think this country has raised its children on the kindergarten t-ball attitude, "Everyone's a winner!"  No offense, the shoot for the Moon so you land amongst the stars motto is probably the biggest crock of sh!t I've ever heard.  For instance, I wanted to be a rock star in high school after I learned to play guitar.  Yeah, I can see where I would be right now if I had followed your "shoot for the moon advice;" living in my mother's basement, sneaking 17 year old girls in at night, and playing dave matthews love songs to them in an attempt to get laid.  Get serious.  The crap your pushing here is just about as worthless as the "You go to a TTT, you're worthless"  Jesus christ your going to be an attorney, you look at problems objectivly, from all angles.  Extricate the key facts, yada yada yada...  In his case, he needs advice, not a half time locker room speech.  Nor does he need to be put down.  He needs people to tell him "look there may be more disadvantages to what you want to do rather than advatages.  Before you get to that though, you need to put FIRST THINGS FIRST."

Thank fu*k*n god there's someone else on this board that realizes how rediculous half the kids that post here are.  The other half of you, no offense but if you think you don't fall within this 50%, you should be doing your part to make this board a place of information, not an internet high school.  And yes, perhaps I will stop posting here, and maybe stop using the site all together.  For the love of god, sometimes i think that I'm better off masterbating into an old sock than trying to get info here.  Yeah some of the off topic sh!t is good, but you'll never get anything from the threads that attempt to be serious and informative

Erapitt,  I admit it, some of your posts are hilarious especially when your railing on that florida kid.  Maybe the funniest part is the fact that someone would get so @#!**n bent out of shape over a post.  That being said, you can't tell me you aren't doing it to amuse yourself at least just a little.  Yeah, I've seen the people who are like "hey man I just tell it like it is", and "I don't care what anyone thinks,"
and lets not forget, "I give it to them straight."  Not saying your one of those losers who will eventually be walking around with their jaw wired shut for a month becuase they said the wrong thing to someone at a bar (hey, I've seen it happen) I'm just saying, if your smart enough to get into law school, then you have a reasonable knowledge base of communicative actions, (written or spoken) and you're intending a certain response from that action....You know what, trust me this isn't targeted at you, and I hope you agree.  I see this sh!t all the time on LSD.  Many times I have to sift through the Bullsh!t just to get to some real information about a certain topic.  For instance, (again, not target at you or anyone in particular) you write a post about briefing a case and as always, two or three jagoff's are gonna make some sh!tbag comment about somthing.  So then I gotta sit their and waste my time while some poster who was probably a loser in high school, college, and still is, gets up on their internet soap-box in order to get a few laughs and push some kid's buttons.  You use bad grammer in your post, "Your grammer sucks, you're going to a TTT) You spell something wrong "you're never going to succeed in L.S."  Stuff like that.  I used to think this place was a gold-mine for info, but its been invaded by guys who probably rarley get laid, girls who are D2 slam pigs and aren't worth a nut in the face, and LIBERALS.  But hey maybe its the field we're all going into.  Anyway nothing against you PITT, but you can see where I'm comming from with all this sh!t right?

Don't take what everyone said to heart LL, its the nature of this board.  Some people are going to help you, some are going to be brutally honest, and some will be brutally honest to get a few laughs at your expense...i.e. erapitts posts in this thread.  Nothing personal. (I hope at least) I just know that there are a large number of people that would Kill to be in your position, and I'm sure people on this board have good friends who got screwed by the LSAT or themselves have been screwed by the test and are quite sensative when they see an URM making claims that he might not be happy with something that (as they see) was handed to you on a silver platter.  You can understand that right?  Thats just the way some people are man.

I dont know about "killing" any chance for making law review; after all many schools will make him wait until the end of his second year anyway if he's part time.  The issue is whether a transfer within a tier is going to be to your advatage.  Obviously not.  Also why go through the headache just becuase you want to live near home.  IU-Indy isn't a T20 but its not a 3rd or 4th tier either.  In the region (key word region), its respected.  You're going to pretty much have to make your name there becuase in the absence of a reputation, all they have to go on is the "known commodity" i.e. your school. After a few years, you could perhaps go back home.  Find your niche though man, if you surround yourself with the walls you lived in your whole life, you may never reach your potential.  (sorry fro the tony robbins comment) Its crazy though, and not to get down on you, but you start the 15th of May.  Therefore your probably already there or in the process of getting an apartment.  I just hate to see you go through this when it really should have happened well before you opened up Google Maps for the best route from Philly to Indy.

Maybe, but in a situation like this, and given the competition in the field, you can't blame him for wanting to better his situation...On the other hand, you might be very right if all he wants to do is transfer within the 2nd tier.  If its becuase you're away from home and want to be in the area, maybe you'll feel otherwise after living there for a while.  It may be good to get out of the life you had before and start somewhere else from the ground up....On an aside, not to try to call erapitt an a-hole or anything, but you invite people's comments about your numbers when you post personal stuff like that on the internet.  I saw a number of threads congratulating you saying you beat the odds and all that.  My question though is, do you want to be known as the kid who "slipped" into law school by your peers?  I wouldn't.  My numbers weren't horrible but I didn't choose to post them becuase I know there's always someone better.  Call me insecure, maybe I am.  Either way I didn't do as well as I wanted to and have a lot of respect for the people who did do very well.

      Well, lets not make the "conditional" thing an issue.  I'm sure you'll do fine, and there is nothing wrong with looking ahead a little.  I just find it suprising that you posted so many good things about the school and now you're talking about getting out.  Is it the city?  Do you miss home?  That's what I'm wondering.  Also I looked into the summer program and I did not see Civ pro I, larc I or Torts I as part of the curriculum.  So, I think you might be mistaken about taking a lighter load in the fall.  Just so you're not caught off guard, I'd double check that.  I think your "Lighter Load" will be in the form of being a part time student.  So your load will be lighter relative to the full timers.  Let us know LL  I am considering the school as I was accepted to their full time program in March and would like to see why there was such a drastic change in attitude.
