Where should I go next fall? / Re: Whittier, La Verne and Thomas Jefferson

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.

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

Yet another clueless post from you.  This is commonplace in MANY federal clerkships - especially in those with judges of 60+ years of age.  Of course, the final determination is always up to the judge, however, many judges trust their clerks' judgment and give them substantial leeway in deciding and drafting opinions.  Although this might be grounds for impeachment of the judge, it is NOT a violation of the rules of professional conduct.  In fact, I challenge you to find a provision in the rules of professional conduct that might arguably a

Simple, you IMPLIED undue influence over a judge. You NOW backtrack to say otherwise. The implication is the violation.
In MPRE class we had to read cases or disciplined attorneys(normally smart ass selfrightous peons like clerks) we would try to talk their way out of the BS, but they still got the hammer. Your scienter is no good here.

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

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:


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!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: A list of questions

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.
