General Off-Topic Board / Re: SFLSD: No on Prop 8.
« on: October 31, 2008, 12:22:35 AM »
oh hi. i am here for the "No on prop 8" party.

cliff007, which DVD version of the LSAT Proctor did you purchase -- the older version with the gentleman proctor, or with the female proctor? I have not purchased the female proctor version so I cannot possibly opine on that one.

Also, I think that it is rather disingenuous to compare the DVD to a sundial. I would understand your argument if the DVD simply displayed a countdown clock of some sort but it is far more than that.
The one with the transvestite street walker proctor.  It was cheap and easy on the boulevard but there was an unexpected surprise that was not what I would call a happy ending.  I thought it was a girl when I handed over the $5 in a gas station parking lot.   :-[

In case U didn't read my above post, I am unwilling to spend the $$$ on this thing.  I already own a watch and know how to tell time while gripping wood.  I start with the big stick pointing directly north and stop pushing briefly 5 minutes after it is pointing directly south and then get it pointing north again to keep going for the next round of action.  How hard is that?


I agree. If you can do it, everybody sure as hell can.  ::)

but on a serious note, I will agree that the wrist watch thing is down right retarded and should be labeled as social crime.

fair enough. no harm intended.

Brief synopsis:

California Supreme Court has ruled that the state government has no jurisdiction over the choice of partner in marriage. Some opponents of this decision initiated prop 8, which if passed would reverse the decision made by the court.

Well, functionally it would reverse the decision of the court, yes. What it actually does is amend the state constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman.

Also, the court didn't exactly say that the state government has no jurisdiction over partner choice. They said that withholding the right to marry from same-sex couples violated their state constitutional rights.

Not to be picky or anything.

Yes, you are quite right in saying that it violated constitutional right, as in the state's constitutional right to marry a person of their choice.

What they're saying is the current California law, which prohibits marriage between same sex -
"does not constitute a legitimate basis upon which to deny or withhold legal rights."

So I don't think my op is biased and I didn't intend to. It's basically telling the state government they do not have power to legislate on same sex marriage.

Obviously No

Obvious as in commonly understood?

I figure I can avoid calling (I'm abroad...) if everyone else has the same problem.

anyone?

Email. I got a response within 24 hours.

I have gotten waivers without even mentioning my LSAT score...they're all need-based.

If this is the case for you, you can contact the schools and spell out your financial circumstances.  There have been more than a few that have given me a waiver.

Hope this helps.

Did you write a letter or an email?

(California state marriage law) "does not constitute a legitimate basis upon which to deny or withhold legal rights."

I'm considering taking the June 2009 LSAT and I'm worrying about burnout...not sure if now is too soon to start studying.

Which is better?: to take an LSAT course in January and study up through June, or start studying solo in January and then take an LSAT course in the spring, right before the June test.

My concern is that I want to make sure I implement the tricks I learn from the course with sufficient time to be ready for the test.  Is it crazy to start studying now for the June test?  I have my friend's old PowerScore books from a few years back to study from.

there's no such thing as starting too soon. I'd recommend taking the course at earliest convenience. Courses are never enough to reach your full potential. You need to study on your own. Get the techniques down and start studying on your own as much as you can.

Loyola admissions was kind enough to grant me one with an invitation to one of their law forum. Frankly, I do not have enough $ to apply to schools I have in mind. LSAC fee waiver is not an option because I do not meet the citizenship requirement. Anyone have some success stories?
