Current Law Students / Re: Immaturity of Law School Students
« on: July 21, 2009, 12:20:47 PM »
After a year in law school 23 years of life, I have found a handful of very mature and friendly students people.  However, the high proportion of immature and unfriendly students people boggles me.  Do you guys think there is something about law school life that attracts people lacking social skills?  Although I go to a very decent law schoolhave a very inflated sense of being better than others, I still feel like I am back in high school [which was what 5 years ago?].  I also feel frustrated by the degree to which everyone's most people under 35's social life is consumed by drinking (I like to have a few beers a couple days a week, but many law students people at my school in life binge drink often)  Can others relate?

Oh My Goddard!!! This is so hilarious..yet rings truth ;D 

No basketball game this year.  I think they are all going to a baseball game, although I will not be in attendance.

I must also respectfully disagree with your assessment of the UofH reputation.  I do take it that you are a Texas resident, therefore you must know that UofH has a reach much further in Texas than Tech.  As a matter of fact the following link clears makes the case.,4016101.0.html

I stand corrected.  However, with a 146 and LSU, the GODS were at work here.

LSU in Louisiana with a 146?  How did that happen?  146 gets you in the best law school in the State?  There must be another LSU out there.

And the Texas residents says........Uof H.  It is highly regarded in Texas.  However, Tech is up there as well.  But in the land of several good law schools, U of H is among the top 4 in Texas.  Tech falls outside of the top 4.

It will come down to your LSAT score and gpa.  Do not let anyone on here fool you.  I received several declines, wait lists, and a few acceptances.  My military experience had no bearing on any decision.  However, I have personally talked to a schools admissions department that said the Dean was actively seeking to admit more military veterans.  This instance is too scarce to hang a hat on.  Hope this helps.

I am a non traditional student as well.  However, for me I have always wanted to be a lawyer.  I even participated in teen court for two years as a teenager.  There are a few realizations that I had to come to terms with.  Yes it is very expensive to go to law school.  Yes I will have a huge debt because I did not score terribly well on the LSAT.  Yes I will be attending a T4.  And yes my starting salary may be between 30k-60k.  With that said, this is still something that I have always wanted to do.  If it were another career, such as banking, doctor, police officer, or anything else then I am sure that I would be pursuing that at all cost.  In my opinion it is pure nuts to go to law school with everything stacked against you UNLESS this is a career that you have wanted to do.  Otherwise you might find yourself in a career, debt ridden, and worst of all miserable.  For me the pro (me being an attorney) far outweighs the con (debt) that law school will bring.  So if this is truely something you want to do then there should not be anything or anyone to persuade you otherwise.
