I know this board is for pre-law students who presumably have no legal experience, but what the heck.  I'm looking for some legal advice...

Here's my situation.  I broke up with my rock band a few weeks ago.  I heard news that they were creating a new record with changes to our previous material, so I sent them an email with a coule stipulations regarding the use of my music, like give me credit and what not.  They quickly responded and agreed to them.

But then I sent another email stating I believe it would be a good idea to write down music and lyric credits.  I included a list of the credits and asked them to respond if they agreed or thought changes had to be made.  No one responded to my message.

I called one guy and he said he didn't think they had to write the credits down and assured me they would give me credit.  But then I told him I still wanted him to look over the credits list and respond.  He told me "Yeah, I suppose I could do that". 

It's been a few days and no responses. I'm worried about not receiving credit, despite their verbal assurances .  I want something on paper.

So what do you think should I do?  I have been thinking about getting a lawyer.

I got the same.  My numbers were 3.6 and 166.  Kinda borderline.  Not sure if people with lower numbers got the same thing, though.

I'm doing it for a variety of reasons.  The potential financial rewards are alluring, but I also find law mentally stimulating and I thrive in the competitive atmosphere.  I really enjoy advocating on someone's behalf.  I tend to think about things too much, so seeing all sides of an issue comes naturally to me.  I instinctivley pick my words carefully, too.  So, in some ways, I believe my choice to become a lawyer is more of a reflection of who I am rather than what I want to be.  It's more deep than shallow greed.

There are many law schools I would not attend due to dismal job prospects.  But I don't think you can claim you're screwed if you don't go to a t14 school.  You listed salary stats for my future law school, USC, in some other thread on this board and it was something like, avg. salary 125K with 95 % reporting.  USC is not t14, and if that's correct, that's pretty sweet (could you provide a link to that salary info BTW).  Notwithstanding USC, there are a few dozen or so other law schools out there that offer appealing job prospects.  Granted, you have to finigh higher in your class, but not just top 10 %.

I will concede going to a t14 or t10 school significanlty helps.

but let's say for the sake of argument that I decide NOT to take in September, what would be the best option after taking the december test? (as I outlined in the last half of my post)

I say take a recent practice exam and see where you stand.  Assuming you want to get into a top school, do not take the real thing until you get a high score on at least three practice exams(165+).   

I'd say Columbia if it was between CLS and, say, Notre Dame.  But Northwestern for free???

I haven't heard back from Harvard yet either.  But I do not think my 166 will get me far.  If anything, they're searching for my return address somewhere in Cambridge's sewer system.
