Law School Admissions / Re: BC vs BU
« on: September 25, 2005, 09:40:18 AM »
Coming from a catholic undergrad, I was actually a little surprised at the number of Jews at the law school.  I'm not myself involved, so I can't speak specifically, but the Jewish student group seems to be fairly large and active.  I'm sure if you talked to admissions, they could put you in touch with a student who would know a lot more (the president of that group, for example)

BC Law (and note that I'm not talking about the undergrad) is diverse opinion wise, if not in the standard sense of diversity.  The Lambda group is very active (they did a lot of stuff last week with the constitutional convention in Mass)  and the coallition for equality is the leading plaintiff in FAIR v. Rumsfield, which SCOTUS is hearing in December.  They're protesting the Solomon amendment, which allows the military to recruit on campus, in violation of the campus's non-discrimination policy.  (BC won't allow any employers who discriminate to recruit on campus, and they view don't ask don't tell as discrimination, but the government won't let them bar the military).  And religion is present to a very small degree at the law school.

Most students are in their early to mid 20s.  Whats the best way to get people this age to go anywhere?  The promise of free booze!  And (for the most part, at least), we're mature enough to handle it.

Everyone has a different style and a different way that works best for them.  Their way may not be your way.  It may just make them feel better to have that record they can go back to.

Law School Admissions / Re: How do Minors look?

I had a major in finance, and two minors in biology and chemistry.  I just spun it that I was really interested in all of those areas, and I wanted to explore them as much as possible.  I got into the law school of my choice, and while interviewing (before I fully committed to the law school path) I recieved multiple job offers from some good companies.

With the overweight/obesity rates in this country, just having one fat professor is probably a rarety, depending on your defination of fat.  Oh, and instead of cookies, go with pie.  yum, pie...

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 3.1-3.2/166

My stats are pretty close to yours (3.3/165).  I was rejected at BU and I'm going to BC.  I got some money at Northeastern and a ton at Suffolk.  The only advantage I really had was that I did some activities (a sport being the most notable).  Play up your jobs for sure, they're pretty strong and show a desire to help people, even if all you really did was make soup or wash dishes (the adcoms don't need to know that).  Most of all though, excellent choice on Boston and good luck!

Sometimes those posts annoy me, and so on those days I don't read them.  But I definatly started out asking the same questions.  All of the responses to those questions should be taken with a grain of salt though.  Some people told me that I'd be crazy to even apply to BC, some people really encouraged me, and thats where I'm going.  The only ones that really make me angry are the "I have a 4.0 and a 178, will I get in anywhere?"  Give me a break with that one!

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Best College Prank?
« on: June 29, 2005, 05:52:15 PM »
The best prank that happened while I was at college wasn't done by me, but it was hilarious.  I went to a catholic school, and we had a campus-wide movie channel run by student government.  During spring finals, at around midnight, when just about the whole campus was watching instead of studing, (something good was on, like the godfather or something), it all of a sudden switched to super hard-core porn, and was on for a good hour before someone changed it.  people were running through the halls in the dorms screaming to put on the movie channel.  I don't think the kids who did it ever got caught either.

I just graduated from Nova, and believe me, by the end of the last season the bandwagon was overflowing and it was pretty hard to get tickets.  They do a lottery system for student tickets to every game (which are free).  You get points based on winning/losing the last lottery (more points if you lost) and your attendance at games (if you go and get your wildcard swiped, you get extra points).  Non-student tickets are just about impossible, since the whole rest of the pavilion is season tickets.  If you start going to the games early in the season that the hard-core fans don't go to, you'll get more points for the lottery and have a better chance of getting tickets to the good games.  And the big Big East matchups (UConn, 'Cuse...) are at Wachovia and easy to get tickets to.  Just cheer extra hard for me, I'm so mad that I'm not going to be there this season!
