Law School Applications / fee waivers from law school fairs?
« on: October 23, 2006, 10:26:35 PM »
Has anyone had success getting fee waivers from reps at a law school fair?  There is a law school fair at my school in a few days, and I'm wondering if it is worth it to wait to send out apps for another few days in order to maybe get some fee waivers.  Thoughts? 

News Discussion / Scalia vs Strossen
« on: October 16, 2006, 12:37:36 AM »
Scalia and ACLU president had televised debate.  They don't delve into technical legal issues, but some good philosphical stuff being discussed for those who like that sort of thing.

There is a link to the video about halfway down at

General Off-Topic Board / Myers Brigg personality poll
« on: October 16, 2006, 12:06:30 AM »

There is the link to the test.

I saw there were other threads about this, but I wanted an updated sample.  Plus my computer gave me a scary red warning when I tried to respond to a thread that was more than 120 days old. 

I am definitely an INTJ, and I expect that personality type to be quite common on this board.  The description of INTJ fit me perfectly, quite scary in fact.     

General Off-Topic Board / Poll: Shirtless people?

I do this all the time, and I don't care if other people do it, but do others feel the same way?

Law School Applications / to all the seniors...

When you are going to classes, are you finding it difficult not to feel superior?  It's not necessarily senioritis, but I just feel like all the material that I'm seeing in school now I've seen before and that all my classmates are idiots.  Maybe law school will be better?

Law School Applications / importance of charity work?
« on: September 21, 2006, 02:18:45 PM »
Is it a problem if you have absolutely no charity stuff on your application?  It's not that I haven't done any charity work, it's just that none of it was very important, and I'm not really marketing myself as a do-gooder type person.  Should I just include something for the sake of including it?

Law School Applications / If an adcom had to break a tie
« on: September 19, 2006, 11:22:10 PM »
If an adcom called you tomorrow and said that he was considering you and one other person with identical numbers for one spot, and he asked, "Why should I pick you over the other person?" what would you say? 

Try to limit your responses to one or two sentences. 

Law School Applications / what do you tell your friends....
« on: September 18, 2006, 07:52:02 PM »
What do you tell your friends if/when they ask about your applying to law school?  Do they seem interested?  Are they really impressed when you tell them what schools you want to go to or what your LSAT score is?  Personally I am interested in friends who are applying to med school just because I don't know that much about the process, but nobody seems to care as much about law school apps, except the people who want to apply themselves.  But these people are usually the "I just hope I can get into a tier 1" variety.  For people who are applying and have been out of college for a while, what is the reaction like from your coworkers? 

And if you don't have any friends, that's OK too. 

Personal Statement / idea about how to discuss PS's on LSD
« on: September 13, 2006, 11:10:18 PM »
I've read a lot of personal statements through LSD, and a lot of my people have read mine.  Does anybody else think it might be a good idea to have a more public discussion of these statements?  Lots of users create a thread requesting readers for their PS's...might it not be a good idea (with the original poster's permission) to turn that thread into a discussion about the original poster's personal statement?  The main benefit would be that people could see what others wrote about the statement and alter their comments accordingly, such as, "Yes I agree that is a problem," or "No I don't think that is a problem," and a consensus could be reached as to what the flaws/strengths are in a particular piece of writing.  Obviously whether the original poster wants this sort of discussion to take place would be up to him, but I think it might help people get better feedback.

General Off-Topic Board / Hip Abduction Machines
« on: September 04, 2006, 10:30:42 PM »
Why do girls use these so much?  I see girls at the gym literally doing them for ten or fifteen straight minutes.  Wouldn't they just be better off doing squats or lunges with actual weight?  I kind of like watching them do it though...
