Wow. That's pretty cool. I take it that you plan to practice in Canada then?

Upon graduation, you are ready to take the bar in the U.S. and Canada.

A lot more here: http://www.uwindsor.ca/dualjd/

Someone really should congradulate Cooley; they went from #12 in their own rankings up to #2 beat only by Harvard.

Take that Princton, Yale,etc,etc....... 8)

I didn't even know that there was such a degree. Does it exempt you from having to take the extra credits in Canada that most american JD grads have to take to get licensed there?

Applied to Dayton, Detroit Mercy, Wayne State, and Toledo.

Anyone have any thoughts on the joint US/Canadian JD program at Mercy?

Take care, and thanks everyone!

Have you seen most of the 0L posters here? MOST of them think the same way(they just use USNews as their excuse to say the EXACT same thing)

If the poster wants to know which piper most people tend to follow, I'd recommend reader their articles. Most people would go to Sheol if they published it as #1.  :o ::)

Wow, I'm thinking OP's trolling.  I wouldnt even know where to start on the first question.  If you're seriously eliminating schools from consideration over your dislike of their name, just don't go to school at all.  I'd hate to see you thrown out of court for mocking a judge's name or alma mater one day, that'd just be a shame.

those are probably the best LOR's anyone in your application pool will have.

That being said, they could be from the father,son and holy ghoust, and it STILL wouldn't matter if the GPA and LSAT didn't add up.
Good job on the letters though, that's pretty badass! :)

Deans List last two years. My LOR were both from former profs who are attorneys, one who is a professor at the law school I'm trying to get into (I took a class of his at another local university), and the other is a juvenile court magistrate.

What do your junior and senior year grades look like?  Admissions committees look for an upward trend.  It will also be very important that any letters of recommendation you get (yes you will need them for applications) are from professors who are familiar with your work.  If your lsat comes in below 160, take a prep course and get it above 160.  Visit the law school information site. If you can get into the 160's and a couple of professor LOR's you can get into a school.  Not going to be T14.

Well, Whittier has a 51% 1L attrition rate(almost TWICE that of cooley and other T-4's)

If you want a majority chance of not being there as a 2L, go there.
If not, then anywhere else.

So you violate the rules of professional conduct. (big win for the big man)

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.

I want to support you here since I hate this duesh too, but a lot of lawyers start out over $100K.
(true on the student loans part though, shitsabitch! :( )



If you never have met someone who scored in the 130s, that's a problem on your end. Plenty of people score in the 130s and it's absolutely silly to think otherwise.

I'm not saying that people don't score in the 130s.  I've just never met such a person.  I'm not sure that's a problem on my end.  Rather, I think it speaks volumes about the type of people with whom I choose to associate.

Have you ever heard of Aspergers Syndrome?  Your posts reek of someone who is riding the Autistic Spectrum Train....

It seems like you're implying that people whos score in the 130's on their LSAT's are "subhuman"... or at the very least inferior to you...

BTW... I'm 22 years old, and got a job with a start up company last year, that has taken off. Guess how much I am making now? Almost 70K annual salary... Not bad for a 2010 undergrad.... I didn't include that in my initial post either.

How much does the district court pay you???

Have you paid off your law school debts yet???



I'm not trying to be an a-hole, and do appreciate your insight. I just think you have some ill concieved thoughts travelling through your mind. Who honestly passes judgment on someone based on their LSAT score?

Yes you did.

BAWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!(clerk :'( )HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! ::)

Ok, so then what's your excuse for not knowing all said things if your so great then?

WTF are you talking about?  The OP posted that he thought he made a 130 on the LSAT because he had IBS.  I told him that he was flame - no one makes a 130 on the LSAT.  You quote me in post #10 and talk about how you're sorry that you offended my school - a post that was completely out of the blue.

I'm not sure what you don't understand about my posts or what your problem is.  But, I do hope that you improve your reading comprehension skills prior to law school.  As an aside, I've already proven in my past posts that I am, in fact, a federal district court clerk.  One of the mods verified my IP address as one belonging to courts in a particular circuit.
