the constitution is a *terrible* guide to con law. it doesn't even mention key concepts like level of scrutiny. you're better off reading the canadian constitution.

just a few corrections.
- i could get into a good law school. i chose my current school (which is a good law school) for a large scholarship.
- i'm doing very well at my current school.
- i've not failed at everything legal. i've succeeded at almost everything legal that i've tried.
- it's "advice." that's the noun form. "advise" is a verb.
Anyone can play the flugelhorn if they just believe in themselves enough. Why are you such a downer to people trying to achieve their dreams?

thanks for the detailed procedural information. as for my chances: i remember when all the doctors said i would never play the flugelhorn again after my accident, so i don't pay attention to people who tell me my goals are impossible.

FYI, you spelled JUVENILE wrong in the post heading!
the death penalty is jejune and vile. also unconstitutional.

anyway, maybe i should just focus on getting *on* the supreme court, instead. my school is higher-ranked than howard, and they got a guy on there. i think presidents are less selective with their SCOTUS appointments (and the senate with ratification) than the justices are with their clerkships.

read mr. galt's statement. he's not being serious - he's mocking me.
i guess you're right if T4 and T6 refer to HYSC and HYSCCN. i read him as joking about tier 6. also, the presence of creighton and pepperdine on the list.

thanks for the feedback, esp. to lloyd and john galt, who alone addressed my question.
from the gossip website i was referred to, i see that i have another limitation that i hadn't reckoned with: i'm not quite a superhottie. but that can be remedied with some surgery and an improved exercise regimen. i'm not ready to accept defeat yet, in spite of the undoubtedly sincere and well-founded skepticism that some of you have expressed about my chances.

a civil action is somewhat useful for civ pro purposes. so is "the buffalo creek disaster." don't watch the movie "a civil action" - it gets civil procedure wrong, and it's a bad movie.
as far as study aids, look at the examples and explanations series and do the exercises.
