Dude...READ THE POST. This guy is not trying to transfer in the middle of a joint degree program...HE's TRYING TO START ONE WHEN HE TRANSFERS.....and HE SAID THAT IT WASN'T CLEAR ON THE WEBSITE....YOU GINORMOUS TOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wow Budlaw, for someone WRITING IN ALL CAPS ABOUT READING THE POST, maybe you should have read mine.  I said in that post that I know there are limits on how many MBA classes you can have, but have never heard of a limit on JD classes.  If you fail to see relevance / parallel, you are an idiot, or as a wise man once said "A GINORMOUS TOOL"

Learned, Sorry for the bad news.

Georgia State / Online Status Notification
« on: February 02, 2006, 09:05:23 AM »
Does anyone else find the online status cruel?  I went from "File Complete" to "Decision Made".  Letter is to be mailed today.  I don't know if this is a better or worse kind of waiting.

General Board / Re: Athens, GA

Pretty easy, actually.  It all depends on where you are going to live.  There are 2 bus systems that run in Athens, one city bus system and one school bus system.  The city bus system runs all over the city at 1 hour intervals, the busses are pretty nice.  The school bus system is fantastic, with 9 different routes that cover the entire campus.  Depending on how far you live from campus, I would consider this to be a pretty good idea.

Also, I assume you got in to UGA?  If so, congrats.  I did undergrad there, and the resulting GPA is keeping out of their LS.....

Transferring / Re: transfer and joint degree

Ok, I see.  That is not ALWAYS the case, as I am working on my MBA now, and will start JD in the fall. 

As for transfers, I know many schools have a limit on how many MBA hours you can have when you start, shich is usually fewer than 20, or one semester or something.  But I have never heard of having a limit on the number of JD hours.  I would think you would just have to be accepted to both programs.  This info can almost always be found on their website.

Have you already heard back?  I am dying here...  I have applied, but haven't heard anything.  When did you hear?

I don't know what type of joint degree you are talking about, but most schools I have seen do not accept transfer students for MBA programs, and thus not to JD / MBA programs.

General Board / Re: What to wear?
« on: January 13, 2006, 05:04:01 PM »
Thanks for the input, I have absolutely no intention of going in pajama pants, but I am hoping to get out of slacks and dress shirts for a few years.  As for popped collars, I think anyone with a popped collar deserves a pop in the face.

VCartman- I go to Georgia State Part time Program, most are coming from work, so anyone in casual clothes gets the dirty look.

Thanks All---

General Board / What to wear?
« on: January 12, 2006, 02:53:59 PM »
I know this will seem silly, but what do people wear to class?  I am currently getting my MBA, and anyone that dresses more casual than khakis and a polo gets dirty looks.  Similar experiences in law school?

General Board / Re: Good LSAT, Bad GPA

TAS-

Thanks-, I did not mean it as "a long time ago", I just know that the farther you get from your undergrad years, the less weight the GPA carries.

General Board / Good LSAT, Bad GPA
« on: June 27, 2005, 12:48:08 PM »
So let's say I have a good LSAT, 164, but a bad undergrad GPA, 2.5

Let's also say that I am currently in an excellent part time MBA program with a 3.8 GPA.

Add to the mix the fact that I graduated undergrad in 2000.

What are my chances of getting into any sort of decent Law School?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
