Acceptances / Re: Who's still in at NOWHERE??!!
« on: April 20, 2006, 10:47:22 PM »
I hate to break it to you guys, but if you haven't been accepted anywhere, YOU SHOULD NOT GO TO LAW SCHOOL.

You obviously can't hack it. You don't have the grades or the LSAT score. Even if you finally get into dumpy school, you will most likely not be successful. Pick a new profession.

like i'd listen to an expert with 19 posts

PWNED!




if i cant be an elitist with my lsat, i will instead wield my mighty post count

Well, your count IS pretty impressive. maybe you should have included it in your PS.

I changed my LSAT back - 'cause I like the people better at this altitude.

Yeah, I've been working between 50 and 60 hours a week for as long as I can remember. At the same time, i have performed volunteer community service, managed rock bands, raised a family and completed my UG degree.Of course, not all of this was done at the same time, but there were times when i juggled several extra-corporate activities while still putting in lots of overtime. So, if i could do BigLaw and only work 60-70 hrs/wk - and make BANK, I might really consider it.

You're going to have to be near the top of your class at any law school you can get in to if you're solidly set on biglaw with that LSAT.

Oh yeah, I forgot that YOU wrote all the rules. I'M NOT WORTHY...I'M NOT WORTHY!

Go piss up a rope.

Dude, I didn't write the rules.  Don't shoot the messenger.  You can go to law school, just don't expect to be making biglaw, or BANK, if you're at the median at schools that accept your numbers.  If you want to do biglaw, just be ready to fight for the top few spots while your in law school.

Actually, biglaw really isn't my thing. I don't really want to be a peon for a few years for any price. Maybe I'll just becom the NEW King of Torts. But then again, money ain't everything. I've already got meoney, used to have LOTS more, and will probably have lots more again. For me, studying and practicing law is more of an intellectual goal. No doubt I'll find success regardless of my school. Of course, LSAT/prestige whores may think otherwise. They have to in order to stroke themselves.

Look, you brought up "make BANK" at 50/60hr, not me.  Whether or not it's necessary, or whether you personally have what it takes to be tops at law school, is a whole different argument.

That's because the thread was about working long hours. My point was/is that 60 hrs a week is not really long hours. But unless one has worked in the real world, they might not think so. So, you're the one who brought up the lack of probability of me being able to work biglaw. Since, you don't know me, what I have accomplished, and what I am capable of doing, perhaps your comments to tell me how it really is are unnecessary.  Besides, I have now changed my LSAT as it appears in my signature, so maybe NOW I have a chance.

Celebrities who experience childbirth and act as though they invented the process. STFU!

I doubt he would appreciate his own mother's comments.
Why?

Because he volunteered to serve our country, and volunteered to engage in overtly dangerous operations while serving in-country. He is a HERO, and heros generally do not like bad mouthing about their commander-in-chief, and about the mission they are attemptimg to accomplish. Probably not even if it is their own mother. At least that's the way it is with the war veterans that i personally know and love. If that is not how sheehan's son felt, he should (and probably would) not have served so valantly.

Man,

Good luck with UNLV. Nobody can say that there's not a lot of law business in Vegas, and lots of $$$ to be made if that's what you're into. On the other hand, SW has a strong Alum network, so all is certainly not lost if you want to stay in So. Cal.
