Law School Applications / Re: Who Cares If You Got In?
« on: December 20, 2005, 10:01:19 PM »
I just wanted to respond to a few points raised in this thread:

1) Teachers have tons of free time.  I taught high school in the ghetto, where we have classes of 35+ students, no resources, etc.  Even in that setting, I still received a planning period every day, which I could use to grade papers, plan lessons, etc.  Yes, I did a significant amount of work at night, but that is largely because I was a relatively new teacher.  If you teach for several years, you'll accumulate a wealth of materials, which will make teaching much easier.  Bottom line:  You get summer vacation, winter break, weekends, holidays, and at least 15 vacation days per year.  That's the equivilant of 3 weeks of pain vacation DURING the school year.  There is also - in most cities - a "teacher's union sick day bank", which allows you to take off extra days in case of emergency, prolonged illness, etc.

2)  Keeping with teachers, teachers get paid VERY well in some locations.  If you want to teach in the suburbs, you can easily get your PhD in education, and within 10 years, be making 75k+.  Given the great benefits and the amount of time off, I think that's a very fair salary.  If you prorated a suburban teacher's salary based on the amount of hours actually worked, you'd agree that they are being compensated very fairly.

There are places where teachers are paid well? And they have unions? Where is this place of which you speak, because it definitely isn't in Texas.


my two best friends teachers are teachers in Nassau County *public* schools... they both have masters and have worked for their school districts for almost 20 years.... they both are close to six figures. my (unmarried) gym teacher retired and bought herself a brand new Jag as a "retirement present". if i planned on living on LI i would be a teacher in a heartbeat, they get to spend 4 years of UG partying their asses off and taking the easiest sociology classes ever AND then they do their Masters for a year + summer, and voila: starting at like $50,000. plus, most school districts are pretty good to qualified alumni.

a few of us have no desire to be a "lawyer" in the stereotypical sense... i for never intended to be be a lawyer, i instead i plan to use my JD at a non profit of some sort, hopefully animal rights. big law and huge salaries are not my goal, i loathe the idea of t-14/big law, for myself that is.  i finished my UG and had no idea what the hell i was supposed to do with myself...i avoided the possibility of law school like the plague because i had no idea what it entailed. so i enrolled in a paralegal cert class & got a job at a law firm, just to get me acquainted with things.  i'm realizing that i like learning about law but i hate the idea of working in a "law firm". not to mention that i want to get married and have a family. i don't want a mercedes and a hot shot career, i just want to be happy and comfortable... i want to do something that i believe in. hell, my other option was a masters in international political economy, but i had no desire to work for corporate america, or the WB/IMF/WTO/etc/etc.... so here i am, taking the LSATs in June and hoping for a 165 to get me into UNC or 'Bama.

Yes, those are all good examples, and Queen Latifah too.

She was pretty fat for a while, but then she got in shape and now she really is just a big boned woman, nothing wrong with that. 

I'd much rather look like her if I were a woman than look like anorexic-era Lindsay Lohan or Nicole Richie (did I mention I think she looks really, really bad?)

wait, NICOLE RICHIE looks bad?
you don't like the Skeleton Chic look?

she's beginning to resemble a starving Ethiopian....

In comparison to her former self, she is a goddess. In the first few seasons of simple life, she looked like she walked straight out of a roald dahl cover.

perhaps lookswise she is more attractive, but she was a whole lot healthier as her former self.

I thought she admitted she gained all that weight from boozin' and eating after drug binges. She was in rehab for a long time. Probably healthier to be slightly underweight.

not if she is slightly underweight due to an eating disorder.... the way that her bones stick out and you can see her ribs / collarbone hint that she's not underweight due to exercise... looking at her arms, which aren't toned at all, it would seem as though there is an eating disorder. i won't even go into how harmful anorexia is on a body, but being bulimic for just a few months can have noticeable effects on one's heart. i was part of a women's counseling group and most literature suggests that a person is better off being slightly overweight than having low body mass due to a destructive eating disorder. not to mention, one is much easier to correct than the other.

I mean, seriously, it's totally taking over everywhere.  Curvy this, curvy that.  Just say it: chunky, chubby, fat.  That's all it means.  Pretending otherwise is just delusion.

Before you all hop on me, yeah, I know, this is somewhat of an insensitive, sexist post.  But it's been driving me nuts! :)

Well, Dave, I agree that people are too f-ing scared of speaking their mind.  There's some unspoken law against offending people, and I, for one, think that's f-ing retarded.

However, curvy DOES NOT NECESSARILY equal fat.  For me, curvy means just that: "curvy."  It means that there's a definite prominent shape to a girl that strikes me as effeminate.  May not be the same for everyone, but that's me.

I have to say here that you would all find me a righteous prick in real life (if not already on LSD!   :D).  I don't mince words.  If a girl is fat and she asks me whether she is or not, I will tell her what I think.  I'm most irritated by girls who call themselves "dancers" when, really, they need to lose 10 pounds.   And, given that I'm one of those guys who thinks girls are fine even 10 pounds ABOVE their DOCTOR-RECOMMENDED weight, for me to say you need to lose a few pounds means you REALLY need to lose a few pounds.

Of course, I take as well as I give.  However, I refuse to play people's fake-compliment games.  I'm not going to tell you *&^% that's not true.  It doesn't do me any good, and it doesn't do you any good.  Get your boyfriend/girlfriend to lie to you.  I won't even lie to mine, and she appreciates that.

most women would have to go on a starvation diet to ever have a "dancers" body...
my roommate danced ballet competitively til about 16...she's 5'2" and 95 pounds, she wears girls clothes because she won't even fit into a womens 00. SHE says she is overweight to be a dancer.
see the movie 'Chicago' and check out the backup dancers..... those chicks with the rib cages showing, those are "dancer bodies."

I like good taste in music, guys who share a love for at least some of the bands i'm into but also introduce me to new stuff.

earlier this year i broke up with a guy because he did not know who bob dylan was.

is that even possible!?
my college roommate was so f-ing stupid when it came to music... she didn't recognize "satisfaction" by the stones or "welcome to the jungle" by guns&roses.
it absolutely KILLED my other roommate who is music obsessed. she cried when liz didn't know who jerry garcia was.

I agree, although how mean of one of Hollywood's slimmest stars to comment on fatties.

"Curvy" makes it sound as though being overweight is a good thing, and it's not. 

A curvy woman: Catherine Zeta Jones

A fat woman: Camryn Manheim


curvy is T& A... or H, T & A - hips, unmentionables & ass.....
look at JLO, Claire Danes, Selma Hayek, or Scarlett Johanssen.... even the former-anarexic Lindsey Lohan....
definatelyyyyyy curvy, not fat. more hourglass. very feminine and very sexy.
my brother always says: "men like hips, boys like sticks"
