you just like to type randomshit huh? :-X

How the hell do you figure that?


I'm glad that at least we don't disagree that you're just making an assumption.

also, your credit repot won't affect your ability to get an intership while in school at a lawfirm/clinic. That's where you will need to focus like a hawk if you really do plan to go solo straight out of school.

Good. I have nothing else to report other than a failure to yield traffic citation.  ;D

I am not interested in working in another firm (which I have heard this would effect my chances of). I am planning on striking out on my own in my own practice. Hitting the pavement hard, advertising like a pro (I have an advertising agency background), and being a hard-nosed, aggressive attorney. I love negotiating, and fighting for a good cause, and the hairs on the back of my neck stand up in euphoria when I get to advocate for someone or something that is righteous.

I feel this is a calling for me.

Personal Statement / Re: Are contractions acceptable?

What are you in an english as a second language class? ???

Yeah, dude contractions are fine. Once you let LSR you will learn that not only that, but you can start a sentence with And/But.

Give it a few years and "legal writing" will be in pure urbonics.  ::)

Well someones as eagerbeaver to get a C&F violation and a degree revocation! ;D

As a rule of thumb NEVER lie on ANY thing, especially a lawschool application. It reflects on your character and fitness as a person.
May sound silly, but the dumber it is, the less you should consider lieing. After all "if  he'd lie about something this small, imagine what he'd do for something larger?!"

-and yes leaving blanks is the same as lieing. (silent fraud)

Debt and bad credit are factors, but primarily only what you do in and after lawschool will be the factors.
Even if you killed a guy during a DUI you'd have a chance, so yeah I think that as long as you stay shiny clean for the next 4 years or so you should be fine.  8)

Naw, people love pulling dead rats out of poo filled septic pipes. THATS where it's at!  ;)

Do forums about technical/trade schools get filled with post telling people not to become plumbers?

That head banker is a real person.  He had a bachelors in business.  Very few community bankers go to grad school.
I was a branch manager before law school as well.

I never suggested that he wasn't a real person. As a former banker yourself I think you can agree that is the exception more than the standard. Afterall, if you were doing such aces while there, why not stay for life? ???

Financial Aid / Re: Where to go?
« on: February 24, 2011, 03:21:48 PM »
Honestly, if you are not a flame, then realize that ConLaw is taught at ALL lawschools. With that GPA and LSAT you could get a fullride anywhere, but if you don't know these facts, then yeah your not telling the truth and just making it up for fun.

If serious, apply and find out.

Due to financial reasons, I need to go to as law school where I can get as much covered in scholarships as possible.  I had a 173 on the LSAT and a 4.0 GPA.  I am interested in studying Constitutional Law and am not entirely sure what I want to do after law school (I know it is difficult to practice Con Law so I am hoping to get a better idea of what I want to do in Law during law school).  What schools would I have a good shot at getting a full ride if I apply?
