consider yourself lucky, eddie. This will give you more time to do research about how there are far fewer jobs that applicants for them and how there is far less work for all the solos than there are solos.

Don't do it. Just don't do it.

Your logic does not make sense. There are always fewer jobs than there are applicants for them, which is why there will always be a positive unemployment rate. If we followed your logic, then nobody should complete any level of education.


well, seeing as how I am a practicing lawyer and you are a law school applicant, guess which one of us is more knowledgeable about the facts on the ground?



Our respective positions within a given field have no relevance to the logic of your argument. You are saying that the OP should not go into the field of law because there are fewer jobs than applicants for those jobs. This is not isolated to the field of law and, as I pointed out, is true of the labor market as a whole. I never stated that you were wrong on that fact, so knowledge about "the facts on the ground" is irrelevant. I am not going to reiterate my argument because you can simply scroll up and read it again. So, please use the education you received in law school to point out where my argument fails. Otherwise, do not try to win an argument by use of your position.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Lewis and Clark, Maine, UNC
« on: April 18, 2009, 05:08:16 PM »
In at L&C, Maine and UNC (all at equal expense), although interested in the mountain west or new england regions. Maine and Lewis and Clark do not seem to travel well outside their respective states. Any reason to choose L&C or Maine over UNC?

If you are interested in environmental law or prefer the northwest, I would recommend Lewis and Clark.

If you are not interested in environmental law or prefer the east coast, I would recommend UNC.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Calling all mommies

I don't understand what the big deal is. It was just a question out of curiousity. If the question is "off limits" then don't answer it.

It is rude and is insinuating something about the OP's character. Secondly, it is irrelevant to the topic being discussed. Normally socialized children learn early on that it is not always polite to ask certain questions, even if they are curious.

I'm 27, mom to two kiddos, 7 and 4.

Both by the same daddy?

That is totally uncalled for. It is clear from your posts that you are trying to start arguments on here for your own entertainment. I will not give you the satisfaction of replying to any of your further posts, so just go away. You have clearly lost at the game of life.

Notre Dame for reasons already stated.

Law School Applications / Re: Reapplying
« on: April 15, 2009, 09:54:53 AM »
I was going to ask for the deferral but based on the situation I don't think they will grant it to me. Plus, I have already sent in my Statement of Intent letters telling them I will not be attending. Basically, me and my wifes condo has been on the market now for six months and has yet to sell. None of the law schools near me accepted me so we would have to move for me to attend law school. Unfortunatly renting it out is not an option because being a landlord and living 3,000 miles away while I am in my 1st year would be unwise.

You could always hire a property management company.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Penn State vs. Pitt
« on: April 10, 2009, 03:08:50 PM »
UPDATE: after some negotiating, it now turns out Pitt will cost $6k/year less than Penn State. I went to visit both schools, and came away thinking Pitt was a dump (decent city though) while PSUs brand new building was great. I'm not wild about living/working/school in western PA for the near future, but $18,000 over 3 years sounds like a lot of money. Leaning towards Penn State at the moment but open to suggestions.

If you came away thinking Pitt was a dump AND you're not thrilled about living or working in western PA, I would say that you shouldn't worry about the additional cost and go to PSU.
