Law School Admissions / Re: PET FRIENDLY LAW FIRMS? ANYONE?
« on: January 12, 2006, 08:51:12 AM »
Are you SERIOUS?!?! IMHO, if you want to take your pet to work with you, either start your own firm, or become a veterinarian. To be frank though, if I were at a law office (unless it was in the actual home of the attorney) and fido or fluffy marched in during the meeting, I would have a less-than-professional impression of the lawyer. Additionally, nothing says gauche like a rumpled suit with pet hair clinging to it in layers. Plus, I am rather allergic to cats, and I would believe it to be, in the least, inconsiderate of those of us with allergies, and/or fear of pets in fido's case. Just my thoughts... Otherwise, I love my dogs, and as long as the cats stay outside, they're cool too!

Exactly. I love dogs, but one must be considerate of others. Exposure to allergens at work can be a nightmare for people.

And conceit over one's numbers is very bad form.


Like I said, I won't offend anyone unless I am offended first.  The post is about something I heard on the radio and was curious to whether it was true or not.  It was not about me really needing to be in a pet friendly environment at work.  So for someone to make a joke about how I should work in a certain place and meaning that in a disrespectful manner is rude, and is only asking for a negative response.

"sorry to get on your case, girl, but how can you criticize people for making assumptions when you  were asking the board to make an assumption about your friend's chances?  Huh"

Ok, first of all, I asked if anyone knew what the chances were of a person with certain characteristics getting into certain schools.  I didn't say it was me, and I didn't say who it was, I kept it neutral because it is appropriate to do it that way. People shouldn't assume it is me and then make comments about how I changed me story.  Obviously if I never said in that post that it was me and the numbers I am telling them are mine don't match with the ones from the other post then I wasn't talking about myself.

And I wasn't asking anyone to assume anything.  I was asking for information on a case, and I expected the answer to be straight forward and not for them to be concerned with who it was about, just with the facts.  They shouldn't assume it was anyone in particular.

"But wouldn't it be more profitable to get involved in the drug- and gun-running?"

Your comment is far from funny and inapropriate considering my life experience.  These kids have very little hope for a good life in general, let alone one that is outside the criminal world.  The current situation in my country is horrible, and there is little will to change coming from the rulers.  My mother was the first and only member of her family to get a college degree, and she is a miracle because that is very rare for the economic conditions she came from.  So don't joke about something that everyday kills more people than you can imagine.

And I spent most of my childhood there too, because my mom had to work and in the begining she didn't trust me with anyone but family.  So I stayed with my grandparents a lot. Also, I only moved to the US when I was 13, speaking very basic English, so I am far from the type of person you are incinuating I am.

It just so happens that my mother's parents live in the slums, a favela called "Morro da Caixa D'Agua" in Rio.  They are also one of the countable white people in an all-black community and frequently targets of crimes for that reason.  I volunteer at the local community center there, mentoring children and helping them with school, basically making sure they do not join gangs and practice gang-ralated activities controled by the drug market.

"I don't mean to be a female dog either, but I distinctly remember cmedici asking what her chances were with a 156 LSAT "

If you guys are going to Law School you better get your facts straight and stop with the assumptions.  I did write something about what would be the chances of someone with those scores getting into certain law schools, but I was asking because I have a best friend/side-kick who I really want to go to school with and I am already in those schools and would like to know what her chances are of getting into any of them (if she has a chance).  She did most of her extra-curriculars and community service with me, so we have a lot in common and have been inseparable.  However, her LSAT is only a 156 and her GPA is only a 3.2 or something.  Very different from my scores.  I don't like to boast, unlike a lot of people who are at this board, so I never tell my scores or share where I got in.  My friend is a minority too, so I figured maybe that would help her be in school with me because they give URM's an easier time...but then again, they see that I had great scores and am a URM so I might actually be the one who makes it harder for my friend to get in.

You guys are very quick to assume, or so I notice.  Just like you assumed that I was just really in the need of taking my dog to work one day, you assume everytime I write something it is about me, and that is not the case.  Unless I say "I" I might not be talking about myself.  Those details are important in Law School, so don't forget.

Meanwhile, back to the topic, if you need a pet-friendly place to live you should look online at teh realtors sites for your areas and check the box that says pets allowed in your search.  I had an easy time finding a place in NY that allows pets.  Good luck!

It's hard to make it work.  But once again, people can be distracted if they have to worry about their personal things too.  So if someone is worried about their dog at home chewing things while they are gone, I can see how that can be a problem too.  So maybe they should have a doggie day care on premisse!  :)  (jk by the way)

You definetly don't.  Especially since in order to be a joke it needs to be funny and related.  I am not talking about myself, I heard this ridiculous thing on the radio and wanted to know if people had ever heard of such thing.  I never heard of it until today, and if they existed of course I would join them!  But I am not THAT desperate to be near my dog.  Just thought it was unusual, interesting and nice...too nice to be true.  But I am pretty sure I will have noproblem finding a job.  SO don't bother trying to help me with that.

"Here is a firm that might hire you.

Sweetie, with your GPA and LSAT score, it might actually be you who ends up working there.
