Transferring / Re: Transfer from Cooley

Depends on where you want to transfer. Could the best worker at Mcdonalds transfer to Burger king? Sure thing.
Does it make any difference? No.

There are numerous examples of people transferring into the T1/2 from T3/4.

Where are you looking location/rank wise?

Bar Exam Preparation / Re: Good/Bad Experiences with Barbri

interesting fact, Kaplan bought Barbri. It's the difference between shopping at Kmart or Sears now.

I am taking the bar next summer and have decided to take Kaplan... The bar is at the end of July and I am getting married at end of May, which means I have from June 4th -July 28 to study. My question is. If I choose to do the complete Kaplan program, does the program have a definite start and finish time? Can I start at beginning of June and still finish the program? If I go completely online can I watch lectures as many times as I want?
I have emailed Kaplan but have yet to recieve a response. Somebody who has done the Kaplan Complete Program online please fill me in

You mention others poor study skills. Isn't the bar a minimum standard test? I thought the curve had nothing to do with it.

I passed, but thought barbri was quite disappointing.  Poorly organized and written materials, they totally missed what would be on the actual bar (they said don't worry about y, study for x and didn't mention z at all - the bar was mostly y and z) and poor quality lectures that were more gimmicky than substantive. Thankfully, the standards for passing are pretty low and most other takers were equally badly prepared.

And you are probably right, I just see a lot of people posting here  :'( ing about the #1 lawschool is so horrible is the price.
That's why I tossed it out there. Heck, I think the online ones are cheaper than that, and there are even a few you can even do through the mail!

They would save a lot of money, but paying for the ABA tag is generally a good investment. Many positions require you graduate from an ABA school. JAG is an example of that you simply cannot do it unless you go to an ABA school. I am going to throw out a B-Ball analogy for the hell of it. CBA schools are like the NBDL it is basketball league and if you excel it can work out. The ABA is the NBA and although anyone would rather play for the Lakers than the Clippers being on an NBA roster beats being on an NBDL roster. Whittier, La Verne etc would like being on the clippers not ideal, but hey your still in the NBA. Whittier is not Harvard, but you are still at an ABA school. I really think it is generally the better route. I do know succesful attorney from CBA schools and the mayor of L.A. went to a non-aba school People's law school I believe. Mayor of L.A. is a pretty position so it certainly can work out, but generally ABA is worth the extra money IMHO.

ok, but just don't judge the whole nation based on Ohio. ;)

Yes, I am in love with the country, and Ohio is getting more ghetto every day.

True, but if they only plan to practice in CA, then they could save a bucket load of money and just go here

Honestly, if those are your three main options, I'd recommend you apply to JFK.

Fine, but you are either a troll or the worst "lawyer" ever. A govt IP can come from pretty much anywhere, and even if it did come from a court house could mean it had wifi and you were the janitor who failed out of undergrad prelaw. Here is the damn rule(idiot) Rule 8.4(e)

A lawyer or law firm shall not:
(a) violate or attempt to violate the Rules of Professional
Conduct, knowingly assist or induce another
to do so, or do so through the acts of another;
(b) engage in illegal conduct that adversely reflects on
the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a
(c) engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit
or misrepresentation;
(d) engage in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration
of justice;
(e) state or imply an ability:
(1) to influence improperly or upon irrelevant
grounds any tribunal, legislative body or public
official; or
(2) to achieve results using means that violate these
Rules or other law;

not a students forum?.......LAWSCHOOLDISCUSSION... ..... :-X

Wow, you really are dense, aren't you?  This forum is for DISCUSSION ABOUT ALL THINGS RELATING TO LAW SCHOOL. Under your logic, people discussing the LSAT should not post on the forum because they are not law school students.  Top-notch reasoning there.

 Once again: Cite a rule, a case, or anything that states that my conduct violated the rules of professional conduct.  You're straying off topic.

not a students forum?.......LAWSCHOOLDISCUSSION... ..... :-X

Simple, you IMPLIED undue influence over a judge.

Stop beating around the bush and cite the damn rule or STFU.  I'm sick and tired of you making up rules and dodging clear cut questions.  Implying undue influence over a judge is a violation of exactly which section of the rules of professional conduct?  How does the law define undue influence?  Give me a case that states that a judicial law clerk violated the rules of professional conduct when he stated that he came up with the legal reasoning and wrote the entire opinion in a particular case.

If you were worth anything at all you wouldn't post on a students forum to begin with. Your like the creepy senior who only hangs around with freshman trying to tell them how awsome he is.  :P

(1) You post here, don't you?  Are you implying that you're not "worth anything at all?" (2) This is not a "student's forum" (3) Sorry you don't like the advice that I've given others on this forum.  You can take it or leave it, I could really give a flying fck.  But, there's no need to hate me because of your shortcomings.

You bolded the word decide dumbass, that's beyond implying it's downright bragging.
As for my posting here.........student......... .if a freshman hangs out with freshman it's not creapy. If the senior does while flexing his (mostly imaginary) muscles....well then he's you.  :P

Then you shouldn't  have called him that then. For someone who quotes wikipedia and has time to respond to all this (using your govt computer no less) You sure shouldn't be throwing stones. Grow up and buy a pair of pants and get a real mans job eh clerkie? I get it, bottombitch is fun and you want to brag, but it's still bottombitch. Get over it.

Bottombitch?  Lol.. I basically decide cases and write the opinions.  But, hey, if that's what you want to believe so that you can sleep at night, that's fine with me.
