Law School Admissions / Most important pre law prep: golf lessons?
« on: April 29, 2004, 10:22:01 AM »
I don't know how to play golf, and I know that lawyers play a lot of golf with clients and partners, so I was thinking that I might go for lessons this summer.  I'd hate to have a recruiter from a firm ask me out to a game and have to turn them down or make a fool of myself on the course.  So do you guys think getting some golf lessons is a good plan for the summer?  The last time I played, a pro followed me and my firends around yelling at us to move faster and stop holding up the real golfers. . .  ;)

I was thinking it would be nice to have a board that's only for the senior citizens.  I know you can make boards inaccessible to certain member groups on other board programs, so I'm guessing you can with this one too.  Since most of the regular posters are a kind of a community, I think we would all enjoy the abilitt to have conversations which these new trolls and joke acounts can't bust up  ;)

For those of you who don't know, the "Iron Chef America:  Battle of the Masters" tournament kicks off tonight, with the strongest Iron Chef (Hiroyuki Sakai) facing Bobby Flay.  It all starts at 9 o'clock EST tonight, so be sure to tune in.

Personally, I hope that stupid cutting board disrespecting Flay gets put in his place by the delcroix of French cuisine   :)

While I was thinking about the lack of creative political platforms which candidate stand on, I suddenly had the idea of a sentator who did nothing but filibuster.  If this person was really elected, and had the stamina to go for days, then he could grind the whole government process to a halt.  This would require the senate to work very quickly, on the days when the filibusterer was out recovering, which might lead to simpler, more staight foward legislation, since there would be no time for long drawn out compromises.   :)

Studying for the LSAT / This topic may help you improve your score!
« on: April 16, 2004, 08:09:27 PM »
I’ve alluded in several posts to the “dead game types”.  On my test administration (Oct 4, 2003) there was a circular sequencing game, a game type which had not been on the test in many years, and this leads me to believe that the game types you are told not to study are actually vitally important to the modern LSAT.  So, I decided to give you guys a list of “dead games” as listed by Kaplan.  Unfortunately, the very game type I faced (circular sequencing) is not delineated in this list, but I’m sure you can find these games on your own.  If you study these games hard, then you will be at a big advantage over other test takers.  Good luck with studying.

Law School Admissions / The new acceptance letters thread
« on: April 13, 2004, 05:38:54 PM »
Since the old thread will be drowning in hateraid soon, I figured it was time to start a new thread for people to share their acceptances, dings, and waitlists.  Post whenever you get a new letter in the mail, so we can share in your elation, offer consolations, or just share some libations to toast your future law career.  Good luck everyone!

Site Suggestions and Announcements / Can we eliminate time out?
« on: April 12, 2004, 05:35:47 PM »
I've noticed that messages tend to time out whenever writing a long post.  The problem is that the most useful posts tend to be on the long side, and are therefore in danger of timing out.  Is there anything we can do about the message time out?  If not, then I'll just stick with copying all my posts before hitting "post".  It's not a huge thing, so don't worry about it if it would be a lot of work for you to change.   

Choosing the Right Law School / CLS scholarship!
« on: April 10, 2004, 07:01:27 PM »
I got my CLS (columbia) fin. aid package today, and I was expecting to see that it was nothing, since the director of admissions told me CLS didn't give out merit based aid like NYU and other schools did.  Imagine my surprise when I read that I had gotten $45,000!!!!  I'm just shocked now.  They not only gave me money, but they actually beat NYU by $2,500. 

Site Suggestions and Announcements / Extra board feature
« on: April 08, 2004, 12:49:58 AM »
First of all, I want to say this is a great site.  I'm glad to have found a board for prelaws which has a nice user base, and is powered by a nice board system.  My only suggestion is that a button be added to the bottom of the page which automatically runs a search for all the active topics of the day.  Just saves some time when looking over the site.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Anyone on hold?
« on: April 08, 2004, 12:38:30 AM »
I know hold is different from waitlisted, but I suspect that holds just become waitlists in the end, and then often times get rejected.  So, does anyone have any insight into holds, or advice on what to do to move from hold to accepted, instead of waitlisted?  I'm currently holding at Harvard, and that is not something I'm very hopeful about. . .
