I don't know anything about Appalach.

Here's some good press.

January 2002 Campus Shooting
Main article: Appalachian School of Law shooting
On January 16, 2002, ASL Dean Anthony Sutin, Professor Thomas Blackwell, and 1L student Angela Dales were shot and killed by disgruntled student Peter Odighizuwa, 43, of Nigeria. At trial, Odighizuwa was found mentally competent, plead guilty to the murders to avoid the death penalty, and was sentenced to multiple life terms in prison.

And because I can't repress my snarky side, I would say your chances would greatly improve if you avoid typos like the one in bold.

Does the SBA have an actual impact at anyone's school? Or is it more "lip service" than anything else? I'm trying to decide if I should even bother voting in the upcoming SBA election. 

Law school SBA is for those who did not get elected as class secretary sophomore year in high school.

I would strongly recommend Bob Loblaw's School of Law.

Serious answers only, though, I know how tempting it is to be a wise


Head over heels?

You're looking for some sort of mind blowing formula on this board that will make adcoms climax upon reading your lor?

Ahh crap, you're right, it is too tempting to be a wise guy.

Current Law Students / Re: lsat score and grades in law school
« on: March 08, 2007, 09:32:56 AM »
A large part of getting good grades in law school is how much time you are willing to put in. Most people in law school are very smart, but most of those people don't put in the work required to get top grades.

I think that makes a lot of sense.  When I entered my t2, my lsat and gpa were both around the bottom 15-20%, and I finished the first semester around the top 25-30%.  I agree, putting in the work is key. 

Being in the bottom of your entering class does not necessarily correlate to your performance or rank within the class.

While I know that most schools do not recommend macs, I just could not resist when my man Jobs put out this badboy.

I think this is a preview of the '08 model, could be wrong though.  A little more $$$, but definitely worth the extra jingle.

And if you're in a real law school, you're going to need a real phone, and not one of those sissy razors.  I mean a REAL phone.

Yup, that should do the trick.

I just dreamt that all my teeth fell out.  What the hell is that supposed to mean?  I'm guessing that it means the Crab People are staging an attack.

Hope you're not pregnant.

Losing Teeth
Dreams about teeth falling out are quite common and can mean one of two things. The first is to do with  having children. (Animals carry their young around with their teeth). This type of dream can be triggered by a number of things.

Approaching menopause and therefore losing the ability to have children

A physical problem leading to an inability to have children

Not feeling capable of raising a child

Your children are ready to 'leave the nest'

Wanting a child but your partner doesn't

The other thing it can indicate is that you are in a situation where you cannot assert yourself. For example, if you work for somebody who is overbearing and your right to be assertive is not catered for.

there are many factors to look at when reading those stats, and you can probably get some good info from them, but I would not base your decision solely on the graduation placement rate, especially when SU has nearly 100% of grads employed within 6 months and competitive salary ranges. 

I'm currently at SU, and both schools are different in many ways.  You should go check out a class or two at both schools, meet with some professors, maybe some admin and see what they have to say about their respective school.  Go talk to the students.  hang out in the law building.  Talk to some attys in the field that you might want to end up in, and see what they have to say about each school.

Transferring / Re: Transfer Friendly Schools?!?
« on: February 21, 2007, 03:06:26 PM »
Anyone heard anything about University of Washington?

This is generally code for not transfer-friendly. Stanford says the same thing.

eh, generally, maybe.  I wouldnt stop there though.  One school that I contacted has the above wording on their site.  I contacted the Dean of admissions, and she told me that they admitted 29 students last year. (i believe only 14 or so transferred out.)
