It is people on here that make me not want to apply.  Not necessarily the snide comments; rather, the absolutely anal approach to the admissions process. I understand it is complex and people would like some direction, yet the way in which the most mundane of subjects are harped on is insane.

** I guess its to be expected of someone, myself included, who searches out a message board for law school.  LSD DOES offer great advice, but at times I question why anyone would want to get involved with some of these characters.

Law School Applications / What ELSE can you do with a JD?
« on: December 23, 2008, 01:46:07 PM »
So with everyone's desire to earn a J.D., it seems that one can either go into private practice, public interest, government work, or with some luck academia.

I am curious to know if there is anyone who has went another direction with their JD and truly was able to put it to good use in another career choice?  Thoughts or examples?

** Also, what about joint degree.  How much does that JD help in the business side of things? or when coupled with a degree in something like environmental policy?

Law School Applications / Re: Honors program?

I agree with both of you guys stating that it is to your benefit to do something that you are genuinely interested in.  This has been said in numerous LSD threads, and I think is very very logical advice; however, many times it is reasonable to ask "if this major or that activity will help in the long run."  Certainly you should be interested in something to pursue it, but lets talk about something like an honors program...

Perhaps you would like to be intellectually challenged, and be in classes with other honors students, etc....but I would assume that you would like your efforts to pay off in some way or another, not just for law school admissions but on resumes and within the school community as well.  I believe these questions are very valid, and in my experience with an honors program, its primary benefit was the extra attention and resources garnered within the undergrad institution.  It just made professors throughout all colleges in the university more accessible for any questions I may have had.

Just campus aesthetics.....not the city or anything like that....basing it all on campuses,(including undergrad if its connected)....

Granted I have been to about 20 or so of these schools whether it was visiting for ugrad, law school, or just visiting a city in general.  But this is my list based on my personal likes.

Correct, but I think those are both AWESOME areas, but just lacking in the awesome campus feel.  IF NU's law school were in evanston, than I would put it on this list.  Just give me your list, and give some reasons....sound good?

Yes physical campus, ....so if a law school is connected with an undergrad campus, that includes the undergrad
