Good. Online grads shouldn't be admitted anywhere.

I agree wholly.

General Board / Re: Why is Cooley the only real lawschool?
« on: May 31, 2010, 10:15:33 PM »
I disagree with your topic title. Other law schools generate more cash by being attached to Universities. Cooley does partner up with Oakland University though to offer dual degrees, so that doesn't take away much from the school. However, its acceptance rate is very high due to it needing large sums of money to actually make it as a law school. I say it is a bad thing unless you have a large backing, but given the times, being attached to a University is much better financially and academically than being solo.

Hm, depends mostly. Right now I have not used any FA and was waiting until Law School. The average cost per year seems to be 60k and my parents only pay 35-40k right now for me to attend college. If they could keep paying the same amount then I should be about 75-80k in debt. It depends upon your circumstances though; for people who are getting through school on their own the norm tends to be 150-200k in debt, whereas for people like me, nothing over 100k.

Lol, also taken out of sheer ignorance. So, those people protesting the enslavement of Africans weren't wrong? How about those people praising and pleading to Hitler to kill all the Jews, were they not wrong as well? Oh, oh, this is a nice one, how about those people stating the world was flat, were they not wrong as well? Lastly, are the people who say homosexuality is a crime against humanity not wrong?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Drake or St. Thomas (MN)
« on: May 31, 2010, 01:22:15 AM »
If you want to practice in Iowa, then go to Drake. Otherwise, for everything else, St. Thomas Law is the better option for quality of education. I have seen a few students from St.Thomas law and can say, they seem like veteran lawyers. That is more-so exaggerations on my part, but the St.Thomas Law graduates do have a sense of professionalism, seriousness, and drive you do not see in many graduates. William Mitchell graduates are somewhat the same as well. I have never met a Hamline Law graduate yet, but once I do, I will tell you about it.

For job market, Minnesota is a good place to practice if you are used to the bone chilling winters. William graduates tend to hold down more jobs in the Minnesota market though due to the bigger companies partners and recruiting officers having gone to Mitchel. However, St.Thomas graduates are employed in various legal offices in the Minnesota market as well. Some even venture off to start their own pracitces or practice law in a different state.

You can get into St. Thomas though with your scores. GPA is, I think, 3.5 for the 75% and 3.02 for the 25%, and the LSAT is 159 for sure.

Affirmative Action / Re: Why Affirmative Action is Justified
« on: May 31, 2010, 12:52:04 AM »
It is not being "snooty," but rather educated. Yes, I will appear as though I am well educated if you were trying to guess. I will not blatantly show my insecurities through piles of errors, comma splices, inane logic, and a letter riddled in idiocy. No, I will not want to appear that way. Would you like to know why? It is a law school, that is why, and the people in this law school have to be well educated, well written, and show civility and class that differentiates you from the proletariat. Instead of trying to ridicule me, try to understand that you must show a sense of worth, not a sense of regularity.

The proletariat views people who are not situated nor obliged by their customs of commonality as haughty. The haughty ones are just people who are much more refined. The proletariats have many facets of communicating with one another, i.e. facebook, myspace, twitter, etc... They need these channels to communicate, as the proletariat are not comfortable being alone, enjoying art and conversing with people within the same culture. The facets they use are just more ways to hide behind themselves and pile unto their own fear of not being "in." To make this short, proletariats do not want to appear as though they are educated nor do they want others to do the same, and if they do... well, the ones who do appear educated are simply ostracized or ridiculed…

That would have gone on longer if I did not catch myself. 

To stay on topic I will say this, Affirmative Action is a copout for those who do not cut it. It is primarily used by people who are not "fit" for a certain job to get one. That in turn, diminishes the intellectual work environment, not help it. The reason why is that other QUALIFIED individuals are negated from that same position all due to someone using Affirmative Action to obtain such a position.

No, he assumed the guy could easily burn out.  Do you know what "could" means???  Here's a hint.  It doesn't mean "far more likely than not."  This bit-o-knowledge may come in handy next month.

 You obviously did not read my post and basically rehashed what I mentioned. How does it feel to be redundant? You obviously failed to get the point also when attempting to insult me in your controverted post. I said the exact same thing. Next time, do read over my post more carefully and get the point that was made within it. I do not know how it feels to be shown up by a guy 11 years younger than you, but you should opt to take the high road. I do not feel like having to keep tutoring you like I did obst in his posts of ignorance. Now, when I say "ignorant," I merely mean not too well informed. In any case, instead of restating what I have already, you should go back and re-read my post, this time, more carefully.

Unlike your posts, my posts aren't meant to insult people but rather shed light on situations. I do not like insulting people so I refrain from it. IF you feel it is necessary to infract me based on your own insecurities of not adequately reading and comprehending a post, then please feel free to do just that. I will not hold anything againt you.

Affirmative Action / Re: Why Affirmative Action is Justified

An obvious mistake. My computer was messing up and I did not bother to fix a simple error at them time.

Also, it is grammar not, "grammer."In addition, your mistake lies in your assumption of what I believe. I never once indicated nor stated that my grammar was the best. You obviously misconstrued an unfounded post and came to such a supposition on your own.

"He did not assume he would burn out or even that he probably would burn out..."

Before I move onto my point. I must attack your post due to the blatant insult at my intelligence.

You self contradicted yourself within that same post. First and foremost the contradiction lies within you saying, "probably would burn out," if you had not noticed "probably" is the same way as saying, "vey likely." That means it is more easy for a person to burn out when studying for that long period of time. When I re-read his post, he said, "it is easy for you to burn out."

Onto my point. Jeffort did assume, and that is where you are wrong. His assumption took place when he noted, "you could easily burn out." Him stating as such is an assumption. If you do not know what assumption means then here is the gist, "conjecture based on no proof; guesswork." Jeffore merely was guessing the OP's temperament level and added in, "you could easily burn out." That is an assumption that the OP has a far more likely chance of burning out than not burning out. Jeffort does not know the OP nor did he ask the OP any further questions to give an accurate assessment of his burnability. He just assumed he would easily burn out if he studied for that long.

As usual, 0-3.

I am sure it is rough. It is always good to have people that are family in the business because you're a shoe-in at a good firm.

On topic, you will never see me step foot into Cooley law. I do believe it is that bad.
