Do you think that its true that you can get a 140 but guessing the same all the way down?

That sucks man, just be glad it wasnt a final exam in class that you can't retake without retaking the whole course or getting kicked to the curb.
At least you can retake the lsat. what were your other two scores?

You want to sue your way into lawschool?  ???

I am not saying you don't have rights, but realise that lawschool with be more tests, lots of them, then a bar exam, and then practice.
You may be able to sue each test as you go, and mabey win, but then real life in the end.........ask yourself if its worth it. There are a lot of good disabled athletes out there, but most realise that they belong in the special olympics and don't try to sue their way into the regular ones, same for why there is a WMBA too. Just a thought to think about is all, its you life, best of luck either way.

If you are that fickle then I expect you to get a divorse in less than a year of marriage. "It all went downhill when out pastor kept pushing us to encourage people to avoid divorse and then the last nail in the coffin was when my husband sent an email asking me not to leave him, how dare he try to encourage me to do things that I should want to do anyways, I hope he burns in hell!!!!"

As for the reality of asking people to help recruit, in reality everyplace that expands will have growing pains. Heck.even when the armed forces were literally shrinking under Clinton, they still promoted their people for recruiting other recruits as do many corporations and other schools. Ever wonder why there are those ads out there asking people to enroll in their schools? Yeah, its called advertising. Word of mouth is just cheaper and more effective. "How dare they try to use a cheaper and more effective way, A-holes must've stayed awake in Marketing and economics classes while the rest of us were smoking pot!"


I think my favorite part of the article was this line: Thomas M. Cooley Law School ranked #12  among ABA accredited schools, according to Thomas M. Cooley Law School. I agree with the student in the article that the fact the Cooley publishes it's own rankings and rates itself so high every time makes it look bad. I also think that receiving an e-mail like that one would push me to transfer.

Wouldn't it be against civil procedure for a state to try to regulate and control the federal courts?

Its been half a year now, did you retake it? How'd the retest go? Did you get the 170?

So if someone took that CA bar as an online grad, they could live fulltime in Boston and never sit the bar at all out there and practice in ANY federal court in ANY state that way? If so, dosn't that mean that online grads can practice in ALL states(just limits the number of courts per state they can do so with)?

General Board / Re: Patent Law
« on: July 19, 2010, 10:25:49 PM »
You can take the patent bar without ANY JD. Ironicly a JD (even ABA approved) can't sit the patent bar(without the right undergrad degree) but your Bachelors in science is all you need to sit it. You can earn the JD too, but you can work as a patent agent while in school too.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: worst case scenario

I take it you plan to go back to lawschool eventually though right, isn't that why you post here?
Paralegal is cool, but I get the vive from you that you'd still prefer the JD if you could. Do you have any plans for it? There has to some way out there to make it happen. You could retry online lawschool while working and most lawfirms offer vacations(time it to take the fybx in cali) and make sure to prep better to pass now that you have experience at it, use the money from the job to pay for the trip, and then once you fully graduate take the CA bar and after passing it move there to work at a firm as a lawyer with 4 years paralegal experience. Wouldn't that work?

Affirmative Action / Re: Why Affirmative Action is Justified
« on: July 18, 2010, 08:56:55 PM »
Here is what I know. I made less than $14K last year with a family of three and am over 24 so parents status dosnt impact it, yet I didnt qualify to pell grant or ANY aid. (only stafford loans, which despite being calling them "aid" have to be paid back)

I chose to take out the loan instead of asking my parents to apply for a parent plus loan. First hand, real life experience. Thats what I know and how I know it.
