Pointless Arguments / Re: New System to Rank Schools

One cheer for GSU!

You people need to lighten up anyway.  This calculation is no more misleading or bogus than the USNWR.  Although, you do seem to have too much time on your hands!!!

OP- If you would oblige,

1) What # are you of your list?

2) What year are you, or have you graduated?

3) If you have graduated, what's your job/debt/despair scenario looking like?

FYI, this is a rant...

Does anyone else find it extremely annoying that we can't get our refunds for financial aid until drop/add period?!?!?

Oh, but don't you worry your little head now, cause the sweet ol' school has given us a credit to use at the campus bookstore... What a crock o'sh!t.  I refuse to spend 20-30% more than I have to on already ridiculously priced textbooks.  Oh, wait, I don't have a choice now do I?  I, like soooo many other poor students, don't have the $700+ laying around to pay out of pocket for my books.  Nor do I, thanks to the delay in section assignment, have enough time to "shop around" before classes begin and ensure beyond a reasonable doubt that my books will arrive on time without forking out the extra $$$ on expedited delivery!!!


ARRGGHHH!!!!  >:(

It is difficult to let go of the idea of becoming a member of this profession because it has essentially been my goal for at least five years.  I refer to my previous example: it is similar to the religious person having difficulty coming to terms with the reality of a godless world.  They still want to believe but the evidence shows no reason for belief.  This is where I am at. 

The reason why I believe science is different from the law (hence more interesting) is because it deals with fundemental concepts of existence, while law deals with arbitrary ideas, fleeting moments within fleeting nations.  Therefore the grunt work of science would be for some greater purpose (at least a greater purpose than law).  A greater purpose in the sense that I believe it is more important to understand the universe than understand one nations arbitrary rules of legality.

I suppose, really, I do simply have to make a choice.  That is the only realistic conclusion.   

It seems that you have made the choice... Further, if this is the type of view you have re: law school and the practice of law, do us all a favor and get off this site.  More importantly, if you are having such a hard time deciding whether to go or not based on these beliefs, then your analytic skills are sub-par and you probably wouldn't do well at your T2/T3/T4 or whatever you said you were considering anyway!!!

By the way, why is anyone else wasting time with such immaturity?!?!?!  Please tell me we have better things to do than argue over accreditation standards, matriculation rates, and penis size of med schools and law schools....

Oh, wait, we are wanna-be lawyers aren't we?!?!   ;)

How do you know what your COA is?  Is that on FAFSA site or GSU?  I have already accepted the loans from the govt, but need some more $$$.  Sad, because GSU is soooo cheap.

RE: the assignment- have any of you gotten the R.W.A books, yet? I hope that 7 chapter thing will be a laughing matter when I actually see the book! If not, I should probably put down all these worthless "law school guides for the people who are really paranoid and neurotic" books and get crackin'...

What about the parent-teenager rule thing?!?!?!  It can't be as easy as it seems, can it?  ???
