General Board / Re: Environmental law-Pace vs Vermont
« on: March 01, 2006, 05:19:08 PM »
Hey Cabe23,
I would go with the school that gave you money-Pace. If you didn't get any scholarship info with your acceptance letter, you're not going to make Vermont budge on giving you any. I know this because I tried. Not in the leverage aspect, but I did ask them to consider me for scholarship money because they made a decision on me based on an incomplete transcript so my g.p.a. is higher than reported on my lsdas report. They weren't even trying to hear it. Kathy Hartman, the director, pretty much let me know that since I didn't get a scholarship notice with my acceptance letter, I wasn't getting ANYTHING but loans. That really put me off because they weren't even trying to give me a chance. In your case, I believe the same will happen to you. They have a trend of giving practically nothing in scholarship money to a few of their students so I wouldn't count on getting anywhere with them since they've already made a decision on you scholarship-wise. I think Pace is a great school ( a close 2nd or 3rd behind Vermont) and will ultimately get you farther if you end up wanting to practice in NY. However, if you can do the loan thing and don't necessarily want to practice in NY, go to Vermont (it's #1 in the country in Environmental Law) and if you do well there I heard of some people who go off to work for environmental law firms in New England making Big$$$ and then you can easily pay off the loans. Ultimately either place is a good school- it comes down to where you want to practice after graduation and if you're willing to go the loan route. Good luck!

definitely agree with adehmar- i would've liked to see a superman that wasn't one dimensional...

Ok so I saw this thing yesterday....and....I hated it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Superman. I've watched all the the Christopher Reeve versions and even watched the Lois and Clark tv series a few years back. But I got to say that outside of the special effects, the movie was pretty flat leaving me most of the time to say "ok...next".  The plot/storyline was just so blah. I was bored for half the movie. I hated that they cast a 23 year old to be a mom of a 5 year old kid, which btw was pretty dumb especially since when you think of Lois Lane, you think of a tough, ball-busting, take-no-$hit newswoman...Lois isn't supposed to me a mom figure if you ask me. I liked Brandon Routh as Clark but as Superman, he was m'eh...just ok. I dunno. I guess he was too young for me too. To make matters worse, they give him a son?!?!?!?! wtf? I think it was such a wrong move since the allure of Superman is the sadness that he isn't "one of us" and will never be able to enjoy such things in life as romance and family because of the duties he has to the world. Now he's a dad?????? Don't get me started on the plot holes- if I remember correctly, at the end of Superman II, Clark/Superman kisses Lois making her forget the time they had spent together and the fact that he was Superman...sooooo how in the world did she allow herself to continue with a pregnancy where she doesn't remember the conception? She figures it's Superman's kid, but did she remember they had sex? Plus how does the kid have powers if when he was conceived, Clark was human and NOT Superman??? I don't know. This movie just disappointed me in so many ways. I did like the score and some of the action sequences but without a good story all you have is a $250 million fireworks show. Maybe it's just me.

I've actually owned my pda for almost two years now- the Loox 720- and it has come in very handy for organizational purposes so I figure I might as well use it for law school. It has wireless, bluetooth, VOIP, a camera, CF/SD, pretty much everything so I see myself using it from time to time in lieu of my laptop when I don't feel like lugging it around. I don't know that I would recommend someone go out and buy one specifically for law school, but if you have one already why not use it right? Plus, it makes for a good conversational piece with the big-wigs- I've whipped mine out a couple of times in a professional setting and many of the men were impressed that as a women I was so into gadgets and they were especially awed at the features it had. With that said, it probably wouldn't hurt to bust one out during OCI- all about image right?

I would like to get married just cuz I don't want to be 65 and alone. However, the notion scares me. Not for any emotional reason but for the mere fact that I'd fear for my life if I fu*ck something up. I watch Forensics Files a lot and 9 times out of 10 you've got the husbands killings their wives to either a)cheat or b)cash in the life insurance.

thanks guys ;D i totally thought "blonde envy" was crap too but it just sucks when guys don't approach you at the bars because the minute a mediocre blonde girl comes in all heads turn  ::).

where do you live?

if you followed the path you'd know

haha. i went to school in ithaca so that's where i had all of my bar experiences...i'm from lower ny however. haven't been to any bars down here due to sheer laziness.

isnt ithica upstate?  wouldnt that be all white country?
and they didnt hit on a hot dark honey?  are they nuts?

haha yea. now you can understand why a few of us had "blonde envy"...you can be freakin halle berry up there and no one would even look twice at you. frustrating indeed.

if you are inquisitive enough you can find a link to my myspace through my lsn...the pic is a bit bright but what can ya do...i only just started getting comfortable in my own skin a couple of months ago...so undergrad was a freakin waste for me since i couldn't even stand to look at myself in the mirror- SERIOUS self esteem issues...being black didn't help in the fact that all of my minority friends had "blonde envy"

lol Miss P, you're right...I actually stopped hanging out with them...i felt like the token black chick in the group...
blueb, nah i didn't ask them. i felt like it would've made the whole thing really awkward especially if they were trying to compliment me. my butt is of regular proportions :D...i guess there are just different standards for black and white beauty?
