General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Vehicles in law school

a car isn't an investment;

If you spend money on it, it's an investment.




INVESTMENT - An asset or item that is purchased with the hope that it will generate income or appreciate in the future. In an economic sense, an investment is the purchase of goods that are not consumed today but are used in the future to create wealth. In finance, an investment is a monetary asset purchased with the idea that the asset will provide income in the future or appreciate and be sold at a higher price.

If I put $5 in your mom's G-string for a lap dance - that is NOT an investment (trust me)  ;D
Therefore your statement in incorrect.

Law School Applications / Re: THE SUB 150 CLUB...WE DESERVE A THREAD!

It can be done. I scored <150 on both of my lsats and I have been accepted @ WNEC. I'm waitlisted at NESL and Albany, and still waiting for a handful of others.

My GPA isn't that great either - 3.1.

I do have a couple of years of work experience (high responsibility position), and a kick-ass PE if I do say so myself.

I'm not a URM - just your average whitey - so no help there.

It can be done - Keep your head up.

At night, over the trunk of my car in a residential cul-de-sac. That was exciting.

What do you think it'll be all about?

The 4 years free service.. I love knowing that I won't have to worry about my car at all through law school. And the 15,000 miles or 1 year between oil changes kicks ass too. The guy that invented synthetic oil is a genius!

'04 Audi A4... Beemers suck :P

Audi's are nothing more than over priced glorified VW's. Throw in leather, knock off the symbol for the olympics, and..POOF! You've got an Audi. BMW's set the benchmark all car manufactures aspire to.

Acceptances / Re: In at WNEC!

Sure - nationally the schools rep isn't great. It's known locally (at least in my area) and that's why the school works for me. It all depends on where you choose to practice. I'm not interested in BIGLAW. My goal is to open a solo or small firm in the future, and do my own thing. Look at it this way - there is no way that the T14's can pump out enough laywers to do everything in this worls. Every law school has it's place, just make sure that the school can realistically help you fulfill your dreams.

I graduated college in May 2004. I've been working in a management role in New Markets and Licensed Product Development for a distributor. I'm leaving my job at the end of the summer because of the commute. I work in North Haven (southern end of the state), and it's just too far of a commute to go from work to school in Mass. I'll be looking for a job at a local law firm. I've got a few connections - so I'm banking on them. I bought a new car last year, plus monthly bills - so not working is not an option.

As far as where people live - I have no idea. I live in central CT, so I'll be commuting to school. It's only about a 30 min. drive from where I live. It looks as though you'll be looking for a place. I noticed that the school offers assistance in finding apartments. Check out this site, it may be of some help.
