Incoming 1Ls / Re: Going to the Military

I am not too interested in the Public Health Service, but the second link, NOAA seems to be something I might have an interest for due to it implementing most of my interests into one. I think because I will finish in the fall of this year I could possibly sign up for it, but I want to weigh the options first. I wouldn't want to be behind a desk but out in the field first. To answer your question though, I believe infantry would be a good start. Does the NOAA provide any sort of field component to the marines portion?

officer seems to be the best route for me rather than enlisted. Can all college grads start as an officer?

I am pretty serious about joining the Marines. For the most part, I am interested in pursuing a legal career primarily due to what I've been considered like, "you're smart, the military is not for you." I do not really care about being smart or following intellectual pursuits as I have more of an interest in the military, i.e. ground combat and strategics more-so than law or pre-med. In other words, the military is the only thing I have had a lot of interest for.

As for my interest, or MOS, I am more interested in reconnaissance or leading an infantry of troops. I would like to enter a bootcamp that would help cultivate my skills.

Math is not my strongest suit, I worked extra hard to get into Calculus and pass it. Reading, comprehension, logic, and writing are my strongest suits. When taking various classes in management to fulfill the core classes for business, I was more inclined towards management and strategical management.

After talks with the family, mentors, and friends, I finally made my decision on a service in the Marines post grad, which is next year. Whether or not it is a good decision is subjective in nature. I have tried being against the military for a long time but have always wanted to be apart of the military. I still plan on going to law school but my question here pertains to the military and law. What bearing would my LSAT score (being taken this fall) have on joining the Marines? Will I still have to take the ASVAB to join, although I completed Calculus, advanced courses in college English, and (future tense) above 150 on the LSAT? And, what position would I rank in, also what MOS would I be able to do? I would like to hear from actual Marines who have gone through training and the like... What were your experiences?

biology, chemistry, physics, and organic chemistry along with some English courses satisfies the pre-med prerequisite for med-school. So, you're saying I don't have to go to law school, all I need to do is take the patent bar exam and if I pass I am certified to practice IP Law? If that is the case then I will do that instead of another 3-4 years of school.

IT depends on how old you are and what year of law school you are in. Job X maybe more lucrative at the moment but has the possibility of not being as lucrative as another job.

My main passion is the sciences, but I only obtained the prereqs for Med-School which I do not like all too well, I thought at the time, it was a good fallback plan. As for finance, well, I make a little money in it currently but do not wish to have clients of my own as I am more interested in trading. However, it is not a passion of my own. My passion lies in the sciences like biotechnology, nanoscience, physics, molecular engineering, etc... So now, I possibly want to add a degree in physics to the 3 degrees I will have in the winter. If I do that, I will have to stay in school 1 more year, so 2011 winter is when I would get out. The math portion of physics is satisfied as well as some courses. It sucks though.

I am more interested in IP law though and less interested in corporate or criminal law. IP law is a good field to head into.

Logical reasoning not your strong suit, eh? ;).  But yes, for 4 years or so, I posted quite often.

with over 15,000 posts I'd say its a bit more than "time to time"  ::)

Lol.  For some reason, I still check in from time to time.

It is not his strong suit. I joined Top Law Schools. This site is pretty inactive with a jerk of a moderator.

Lmfao @ go to Cooley. That is correct, you could get into Cooley.

If you are black and do not want to retake the LSAT, go to Howard and do extremely well there, you will be better off at Howard than Cooley.

I don't think there is anyone who practices international law here, but you could always try another forum and see if they practice there.

^Information on IL.

Clearly you are someone of the most limited capacity. Having consistently demonstrated an inability to construct a simple English sentence, you now see fit to unconsentingly thrust your ungodly intellect upon the public at large. This terrible sort of thing comes about from the breakdown of society, you see - where people don't know their proper place. The mere thought of the proletariat, the hoi polloi if you will, partaking in such activities, which should be the preserve of those who possess Latin to at least an intermediate fluency, is enough to make me nauseous. That they dare nowadays to speak, to read, to write, and even to laugh and pretend to understand anything other than the most basic and animalistic urges in their vulgar, uneducated, barnyard lives, is sickening beyond all measure.
