LSAC and LSDAS / Re: How do I remove a recommender?
« on: February 26, 2011, 08:05:43 AM »
I believe that LSDAS lets you have 4 recommenders, and most lawschools only want 2.
Basicly you don't need that last one anyways in all reality.
Still, call LSDAS and ask them. They'd know.
America's college graduates everyone...... ::)

The LSDAS .So just send everything off even though one of the recommenders I assigned is not sending anything?

What I did do was assigned another person to the particular school who has sent in his recommendation but on  my LSAC homepage it still says that its missing a recommendation.

Obvious troll is obvious.

Probably not. Everyone assumes that the whole world knows the inner workings of lawschools. Why would they? Less than a third of Americans will ever get even a BA, let alone even sit the lsat. People with a full BA tend not to know jack about stuff beyond their major(why would they?)
I don't know jack about admissions into surgical school(why would I, do you?)  :-X

Honestly(and this is with all due respect) even Cooley won't take you right now.
Even they require a 145.


Should I apply to an ivy league law school such as Columbia or Cornell with a an LSAT score of 140 but 3.2 GPA and a great personal statement? For that matter, do I have a chance with other law schools such as NYU, Temple, etc?

I don't think you can to  be honest with you.
Are you talking about LSDAS or the school? If it's the school, it may be possible, but I don't think so with LSDAS.

I'd send in all transcripts. If it's just for "credit" or Pass/NoPass, then yeah it probably won't affect your cumulative GPA, but it's still important to send it in.

you don't believe in drug and immigration control? You do know that almost ALL govt jobs require urineanalysis testing and often hair folicles too right? ???

Thanks bigs.  I like the "facilitator" idea.  I'm a little iffy about DEA and Homeland Security, just b/c I'm ambivalent about my country's drug and immigration policies.  I was in the military before law school and don't like the idea of fighting for causes I don't believe in.

PT can be brought back to snuff in 3 months.  Eyesight standards are generally correctable to 20/20 with contact lenses.  At least, that's what it was for FBI last time I checked.

These are ok options, but just so you know they all tend to require very high physical standards, eye vision, and LOTS of PT.
It's my observation that most lawstudents are FAR from those standards(glasses and use the elevator)


There are numerous federal law enforcement agencies that would be interested. You mentioned the FBI, but there are other organizations DEA, Homeland Security, Secret Service, I am sure quite a few more would be interested to hear from you. This whole war on terror has opened up a few jobs in Federal Law enforcement.

If you want to be in California there are a lot of facilitator jobs for J.D.'s. In San Francisco the organization is called Access and it just provides free legal service to the poor. The office is in the courthouse and I have some friends doing it that seem to really like it. I believe every county in California is required to have a similar program, but I am not 100% sure. These jobs obviously don't extremely well, but you would be a court attorney and have a paycheck, which is nice.

I am sure you will figure something out despite what random people say on the internet there are plenty of ways to use a law degree.

Bigs is it just me, or do lawstudents cry louder over a slinter than most people cry over a broken leg? ::)

Join the club of the real world. It is scary to not have school to fall back on and it would have been better to have good grades, but it is not the real world. Now you will have to choose something and you may not like it. Believe it or not there are a lot of people in this world that don't love their jobs. If you got into a T10 school and graduated I am sure you will figure something out and things will probably work out, but the real world is not as ideal as anyone wants it to be. Unfortunately, you cannot use the I think I will go to law school to get out of the situation anymore, but you will figure something, because you are going to have to. Choose a path and go down it you can always change it, but you need to make on decision whether it be police work, teaching, immigration lawyer, whatever give it a shot if it sucks you can always get out of it. You are not signing any 30 year life long commitments.

Pre-Law in high school / Re: DO NOT GO TO LAW SCHOOL!!!
« on: February 25, 2011, 12:40:10 PM »
wow....

2 plus 2 equals 4. You might be simple enough to need to put two apples in a hat and add two more to see it, most don't.

Same applies to debt to income ratios. You make little, you pay little. You make lots, you can afford to repay so it's ok.
It wouldn't matter if we were talking about lawyers or trained chimps at the zoo, it's the same math. No assumption needed.

I get it, you want to cry. Go ahead and cry. :'( :-X

you just like to type randomshit huh? :-X

Oh I just like pointing out when people are essentially making stuff up and presenting it as fact.

Thomas M. Cooley / Re: Starting Cooley in May
« on: February 25, 2011, 12:36:34 PM »
people talk a good game,but which specific employers give a damn about which Michigan school you went to?

I disagree, split hairs.  Wayne State or MSU will open more/better employment doors for you than a Cooley degree.

Don't split hairs over the rest of the schools in the state.
