There is a gift and a curse that comes with the territory of being an attractive person. It's unfortunate that you had to experience this ordeal.

I can confirm that from my everyday personal experience. Its hard for us beautiful people (j/p) lol

But nah, much respect CUE BUENO for walking away!!

Good ol Justice Souter is going to retire this year!!

what was your regular daily schedule like (outside of class)? How difficult did you find it to incorporate some parts of your life that had nothing to do with law school (ex: excercise, socialize, fam, relationships, and etc) into your schedule?

Esco (nice name by the way lol)

Do you commute to Howard or are you relatively close to the campus? And what do you think about the East towers grad dorm vs looking for apartments somewhere else (price, convienience, impact on grades). If you had a choice (after knowing what you know now) which situation will you pick between staying in apt that is very cheap with commute of 1 1/2 hours each direction (total of 3 hours) on the metro or renting a more expensive apt closer to the school. Thanks

p.s please feel free to throw in any additional housing related advice (any other advice for that matter)

I think you have pretty good chances especially if you get that retake score. Much respect for turning your life around and trying to pass the knowlegde to others.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Appalachian School of Law?

I know about the school because I went to a boarding school near it. It is located in the southwest virginia and its pretty rural area. They give out pretty good fin aid packages and scholorships. They are Tier 4 school and unless you plan on working in that region or transfering, it is going to be difficult to practice outstide that region. Obviously they are a Tier 4 school, but they do have a very good moot court program, they have won it or been runner up every year since 2005. Infact I think they won it this year as well.

Although he is doing it for political self perservation since he wouldve lost his seat if he ran as a rupblican, alteast he is a moderate with many liberal views so you can argue he was at odds with republicans to begin with (well he used to be a democrat back then before he became a republican). But yea its fun seeing him piss off some of the GOP haha, it sure is going to be an interesting site when he walkes through the senate halls as a democrat. I am sure McCain is going to be itching to not tackle him in the name of preventing filibuster. lol

LOL, what kind of females have ya'll been dating?!

I been fortunate to not run into the crazy ones, but once in a while you do run into those with unresolved "daddy issues" or with the catch phrase "my ex cheated on me before". And they want to make you pay for it subconciously because neither of those guys are around lol. You can understand to a certain point, but damn it gets old real fast lol

There does seem to be more value placed on a white's life vs. a black's. Interesting study. However, is this negro who allegedly stole a semi truck today in the ATL guilty? I mean, I love my people, but accountability is a component of the equation; my pricipal point is: We need to do better.

The war on drugs is the prime reason why we are in a situation we are in for the large part. It has become a systematic way of keeping AA's in their place, everyone knows this war has failed but it is till going on. There are many reasons why it is a failure and why it is affecting us the most, which we can go on about it for months.

But you right the bottom line is "we need to do better"!!

I applied in January and I got in also. From what I hear they use a complicated system to pick students. They pick students with diverse/disadvantage background, those that are nominated by some of the schools they applied to, and etc. The most misconception about CLEO is that its just people with low LSAT scores or African Americans. There are those who attend CLEO that are going to T10 schools and there are people going to tier 4 schools. There are many students with different race as well (white, black, spanish, asian, and etc). So yea they have a complicated system. But I did hear most of those who get accepted are 1st genearation or 2nd generation college students in their family.

If you end up not get in, they have a program called AIE which is 3/4 day seminar which everyone who did not get into CLEO qualifies for. I think, you get all the same benefits as those who took the summer program, except the scholarship part and the placement assistance (if you need it).

This is all just from what I have gathered so far, so take it with a grain of salt!!
