I like them both. LSC gives some nice study tips, and a great overview of the whole experience. PLS is more about how to prepare before you begin ...

Is it a Swingline? That movie (and my job being oddly similar) are inspiration as well.

Yep.  I have the Milton stapler.  Well, not the actual one from the movie, but yes, a red Swingline.  ;)

I'm willing to buy into the illusion ...

That exchange about the truth is ironic coming from the mainstream media, though. 

So, I can top any apparent stupidity on this thread.

What originally inspired me to go to LS? The movie A Few Good Men. That's right. The whole scene at the end between Tom and Jack just gives me shivers. I must've watched the movie a couple hundred times -- starting when I was in my early teens. So, anytime I start to feel like this isn't where I am supposed to be, I'll just take a break and watch the movie.

D.C. and CNN also are motivating forces for me.

The journal idea is a good one, I'm just terrible about keeping up with that stuff.

Oh, and I forgot about the series "The West Wing". Yeah, that gives me goosebumps as well (at least when Aaron Sorkin is the writer/producer).

Depends on the school. Where you get more flexibility with numbers, you make up for in experience. If you are doing it just to get into a school you wouldn't qualify for ordinarily, and you don't have the experience to back it up, you are generally in for a tough battle.

But this is a generalization, and I am sure there are schools out there where it is much easier to get into the PT program.

Well, it could be good news, for those who want to go into academia. That's a huge amount of new jobs that would be added in the field, in comparison to what that job market is like right now.

I've heard from a bunch of students at UVa that the book "One L", written by a Harvard grad, is a great picture of what it is really like to be in law school.

I would think that depends on what field you will enter. I've always heard that having a science/engineering background makes you a desirable candidate for IP law, which is a cushy area to begin practicing.

I could be wrong. He could've just been lucky. He was pretty confident that he would get the position, though, and he had no connections to the corporation when he applied.

Then again, this economy might be part of the problem. A year or two makes a big difference.
