I don't understand why everyone is jumping on LawDog.  He made some really good points.  Maybe my law school is atypical (doubt it), but I can make a list of the people who really want to be lawyers and those who came to law school for the "wrong reasons."  It's obvious.  Law school isn't just like any other program.  Law school is super-intense and you are studying the SAME SUBJECT all day long.  You had better love it or you'll be miserable.  BTW, I have an MBA so I have done other graduate work.  Law school is completely different.

There are some in my section who are already bored and aren't even doing the reading anymore.  Also, there are some who are keeping up but are thinking of quitting because they hate it.  I've often thought that their spots should have gone to other applicants who really wanted it.  Maybe those applicants had a slightly lower UGPA or LSAT but would have studied their butts off and made fantastic lawyers.

Bottom line, I agree with LawDog that the adcomms SHOULD be going through the files with an eye for who really wants to be a lawyer and who is just doing it for the money, to escape the economy, or some other disingenuous reason.  Would you really want a lawyer representing you that had no interest in law?  I wouldn't.

(But I am realistic enough to realize that there are reasons why adcomms accept the highest numbers.  I'm just sayin'...)

+1! That's what I am saying. You guys who disagree with me have been doing some very selective reading, b/c i said that some of the people who have recently decided to go to law school have done so for good reasons. I said that many had job offers that were just too good to pass up, or deferred, like I did, but then couldn't come back for several years b/c of a family tragedy...or other reasons. i said I was not lumping everyone together.

Now. I am going to ignore the perpetual elephant that inhabits almost every post I write on and just chalk it up to jealousy, ignorance or whatever. I don't mind people ganging up on me b/c I am secure enough to know when I have made a solid argument. I also know that, in this game, if people gang up on you, you are the strongest combatant. Some of these people are going to disagree with me no matter what I write, even if their disagreements are logically inconsistent with their own stated principles.

But make no mistakew about it. I am no snake-oil salesman. I have been one of the best all of my life, and I will continue being that way. I love frustrating people; it proves my superiority over them. I also love it when I know I am right. I love to give credit where it is due, and many of you deserve a lot of credit for being such worthy adversaries; you make me think (no patronization here). But some others of you need to check yourselves, and read my comments fully before you write, b/c you look absolutely foolish.

"If everyone agrees that you're wrong, you MUST be right."  :D

You = 0L

Miss P = 3L

So yeah, I think I'd be more prone to listen to her than your hypothesizing about what law school might be like.

I am technically not an 0L. And many a 3L graduate knowing nothing about the law. And...did you read that I have had some law school? Read th post, fool.


Oh really?  You have a year of law school under your belt and you're still this hopelessly uninformed on the process and what law school is actually about?  I think that's scarier.

You talking about one win in moot court sounds a bit like Al Bundy bragging about scoring 4 touchdowns in a single game at Polk High School.  No one cares.  And it doesn't make your (incorrect) points any more valid.

ETA: And to the additional added portion of your post (which you added AFTER I quoted the entirety of your post as previously shown, above), you continue to show that you are either a fantastic troll or really, utterly clueless.  If you are really trying to push that people should have more respect for the craft of the law, maybe you should have more respect for creating a cogent, well-articulated argument.  If so many people take issue with what you're saying, perhaps you should do some self reflection and understand that perhaps you aren't showing proper respect for the legal craft by arguing sloppily.  Anyway, have fun with your self-congratulatory posts. 

You keep saying my argfuments are flawed, but offer no tangible evidence to refute my logic. it.

It shoukld be easy. QQUIT MAKING ACCUSATIONS AND MAKE YOUR ARGUMENTS. AND I AM NOT CLULESS ABOUT ANYTHING. I get admitted...I have gotten admitted and i hope I see you at Harvard or wherever it is you think you are going. You suck and you know you suck.

If my arguments are flawed...PROVE IT. highlight a sentence and point out the flaw. identify it by name and tell us all WHY it is flawed. Go ahead!


You sound pretty clueless and full of yourself.  You just told a 3L that plenty of 3L's know nothing about the law whereas your one semester and outside experiences mean you know plenty.  Doesn't it bother you that not one other person in this thread seems to think as highly of you as you do?

You're either somebody's idea of a joke, or a sad sad human being.

Not to ask silly questions, but what is a bluebook?

(To answer the OP, it varies by school. Here, there are IT people, and you get extra time if your work is lost due to crash, etc. We also don't use exam software, and you have to submit electronically.)

Aren't those the blue notebooks that people used to use for exams?

So why didn't you apply to a bunch of schools like Alabama, American, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Oregon, Tulane, Washington, and Wisconsin? You'd have surely got in at all of those and similar schools, and at least a few of them would have thrown stacks of cash at you.

I believe he said it was because he assumed that his work experience and undergrad would help him more than they did.  :)

I'm sorry, this is just a really sensitive issue for me.  My entire life I've wanted to go to law school and get a law degree so that I can use it to help end violence against women and girls.  That is all.  I honestly didn't mean to start an agrument.

I really don't think there's anything for which you need to apologize.  :)

I agree...nothing to apologize for.

And Susan B. What is illogical about telling people to withhold judgement and exercize their brains...look at an issue from multiple angles since, as I aptly pointed out, that's what we all supposedly hope to do in our life's work? Tell me please...Tell me what is illogical about the maxim "Practice doesn't make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect". Did you not try to perfect your LSAT-taking skills before you sat for the real thing? Conceptually, the idea that Candy refuses to think as a law student or lawyer because she is not yet in law school is disingenuous and, frankly, demonstrates a lack of intellectual and emotional chops for the career she is seeking, the community she hopes to be a part of.

Such a person will someday soon respond in class that the Supreme Court was wrong in its decision "because they just are, that all".

First rule of being a lawyer: it doesn't matter what you think, only what you can prove. And none of us can yet prove that CB is a batterer. There appears to be some evidence that he has a problem and that he brutalized his girlfriend. But everything I said below demonstrates that I hold very logical conversations. Don't go there. I frustrate only the weak. I stink only to the weak. The strong always give me my props.

What part of any of that is illogical, Susan B.?

I'm sure you think you hold very logical conversations, but you certainly don't seem able to prove it.  ;)

Are you already a lawyer by the way?  Is that how you know what the rules of being a lawyer are?  ???
