Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Liberty, Regent or Ave Maria
« on: July 02, 2008, 11:07:04 PM »
Let's say that a potential law student with a 3.91 UGPA and a 161 LSAT were looking at Liberty, Regent or Ave Maria.

If your interest in those schools is based on what I think it is, why not consider USD, Pepperdine, or any Loyola instead?

TITCR. Pepperdine is a conservative Christian school that is held in MUCH higher regard. How about Notre Dame, BC, Villanova? Catholic University? Fordham? A lot of them are Catholic, but there is no shortage of Christian law schools, if that is what you want.

What did you major in?  I think you're going to have a good cycle but probably not good chances at Gtown and UMich.  The 171 should get you into WashU and you should have a decent shot at UCLA/Vandy.  Good luck.

Your major doesn't matter unless it is engineering, then you'll likely get a boost. GTown and Mich are worth an application. Apply to more T14s.

I'm not trying to be a Cheney, but it seems as one grows more selfish, one grows more conservative.  How does this affect ME, look how much money they're takin from ME, big government hurts ME, gay marriage doesn't effect ME because I'm not gay, they're not torturing ME at Gitmo, etc. etc.  Now I'm not donating everything I got either, but when one's focus narrows, and the big picture is lost, you wake up one day a republican. 

Actually, that's just politics in general. More women will vote on abortion than men. More factory workers vote for wage controls and against free-trade/NAFTA than white-collar workers. It's all relative. There have been studies recently that showed that self-identified conservatives not only gave more money to charity than liberals. Conservatives are 18 per cent more likely to donate blood, as well. They're also more likely to hug their children and express nurturing emotions.
People who reject the idea that "government has a responsibility to reduce income inequality" give an average of four times more than people who accept that proposition.

   Ironically, the social welfare government programs that I do favor, the Democrats oddly do not.  For instance, I'm appalled by the Democratic stance against school vouchers.  The logic being that they encroach upon the division between church and state in addition to potentially damaging the public schools.  Why do we expect public school to improve without being forced to compete with the private schools?  I have a difficult time telling a kid residing in the Compton school district that we cannot aid your decision to attend a private school because we're hoping your school district will one day become stronger.

That's the problem with selling your soul to the unions. Vouchers are inherently anti-union. The teachers unions have a nice-cozy closed-shop situation with the public school system.

yeah....who really cares 4,000 abortions will happen in the U.S. today anyways??  that's only 1.3 million "fetuses" per year....   what a stupid thing to care about!

67 B.U.L. Rev. 59

Couple things:

People are not really very clear on what conservatism is and isn't.

Conservatism is not not, and rarely has been in the past, a single coherent movement. For example, Barry Goldwater was considered a right-wing 'extremist' in his time. He was also pro-choice and pro-gay-rights, for example, and he saw no need for any religious influence in government.

Goldwater's form of conservatism is ultimately the most ideologically "pure" form.

You also have "social conservatives" who are in-fact contrary to conservative principles when they advocate for government regulating morality.

Then there are the "neocons" and the libertarians.... etc. etc.

The claim that "right-to-life" and free markets are "standard" conservative notions is laughable. Only a subset of conservatives (and none in the current administration, nor most of congress) actually cares about free markets, and while there are some pro-life libertarians, like myself, it is only the social conservatives who really push that as a primary issue.

I'm currently at a t20, and most of my friends around the middle of the class have jobs that pay in the six-figure range (many in the NYC/NJ area).

Yeah? Can you reveal any of the firms they work at?

Your career prospects will probably be different from different schools.  You might want to specify the name.

Similar situation here, except I am just barely (microscopically) above B+...
