Does being a law student give guys extra points with the ladies?

My opinion is no. Seeing some of the guys on these boards and especially xoxo, you law guys come off looking like total pr!cks. It's not at all attractive.

accepted off of the waitlist today at NESL, I don't know much about them, but now am trying to decide between Detroit Mercy or NESL.

Detroit Mercy has a much better rep in Metro Detroit/Michigan than NESL will ever have in Boston. It will also cost you less because Metro Detroit is cheaper to live in. I would go to UDM if I were you.

I'm going to have to agree- while I would love to live in Boston, I don't think I would go to NESL just for the perks of living there. I got accepted at NESL a while back and the only reason why I even considered going there was the chance to live in Boston. Honestly, NESL is the bottom feeder school in Boston- it has to contend with many other better schools in the area (probably even outside of Boston as well). It'll be an uphill battle getting any decent jobs in Boston and even more so out of Boston (if you could even manage that, which is highly unlikely).  Of the two, I would go with UDM- from what I hear, they have a really good rep in their area and pretty much control the market there. Your job prospects there would be ten times better. While the thought of living in Detroit is rather bleh, I would prefer to live there and have a good job than go to NESL and dig through the scraps left by Harvard, BC, BU, Northeastern, and Suffolk.

Hopefully this will be a moot argument when you get into Duquesne. ;)

I know for a couple of applications I've seen (particularly for the school I'm attending), they ask for your "predominant ethnic background" because they know people will be going out having those blood tests that show they are 1/25 hispanic after which they'll take full advantage by marking that down as their ethnicity. Following that logic, 1/4 native american would not be enough to for you to mark that down on your applications. For people in this situation, I think you should ask yourself a simple question, "Does my appearance and/or my ethnicity make me an easy target for racism?" if the answer is no, well you probably wouldn't qualify for URM status. JMHO.

Here's a couple...

1) The episode where Homer joins the Stonecutters, and wipes his mouth with their sacred parchment. He is stripped naked and forced to carry the Stone of Shame, until they find the mark on his rear end that indicates he is the "chosen one".

"Remove the Stone of Shame!"

"Woohoo!"

"Replace it with the Stone of Triumph!" (much bigger than the Stone of Shame)

"Doh!"

2) The episode where Marge has the "Families Come First" initiative on the ballot, and the opposition runs an ad attacking her.

"I'm Marge Simpson, now watch me do some coke off the blade of a knife."

3) The episode where Sideshow Bob is trying to kill Bart (the first time, where they live on the houseboat at Terror Lake), and he writes him a letter in blood, saying "Die Bart Die".

Homer: "Oh my gosh, Marge, someone's trying to kill me!" (Relieved) "Oh wait, it's for Bart." (evil music starts, Bart looks crestfallen)

Haha. that episode just came on yesterday. i like the part when the detective for the witness protection program is trying to get homer to remember his new alias. funniest sh!t ever. also a little further in the episode when homer keeps coming into barts room on the boat and he looks like a daemon or something the first time he comes in with the knife and brownies (and then coming in looking like a chainsaw murderer). i almost pissed my pants that entire episode. definitely a good one. :D

It's all out of context quotes, opinions, and biased research.. Theres a bunch of sites out there that discredit pretty much the whole thing..

This discredits the Pentagon aspect:

http://www.snopes.com/rumors/pentagon.htm
You cant bring yourself to watch the Flight 93 video because of hollywood capitalizing of the tragedy... But you have no problem watching the loose change video that is a conspracy thoery that undermines the very IDEA there even was a tragedy?

You kkep this up and youll make ol Teddy look sane.
The document on Google brings up far more and completely different points from what Snopes says it discredits. Take some time and watch it, itís worth it even if you don't believe it. At the Pentagon one striking thing the director points out is a piece of engine debris which no one who has built, worked on, or designed Boeing 757s can identify.

Anyway there's no reason not to release tapes which show the plane hitting the building, but the government still holds onto them. If they would just release them they could answer most questions regarding the Pentagon. That just leaves the WTC problems.
Anyway United 93 was good and so was the documentary "Loose Change".


I totally agree. I just went through the snopes article and it actually does a really bad job of "discrediting" anything. The Loose Change video, in my opinion, is definitely worth watching. Just watch it with an open mind and you'll start asking questions yourself.

On United 93, I can't bring myself to go and watch it- while I know that the families fully endorse the film, it makes me a little mad to see a movie studio capitalize off the tragic events of that day. Yes blah blah blah they are paying tribute to the lives lost, but there are other ways to memorialize and pay tribute to the victims that don't involve making millions of bucks in the process.

I can't bring myself to watch United 93 because I refuse to give my money to those people. Yes I have no problem watching the loose change video- Simply because I didn't have to pay to watch it. The loose change guys aren't making money from this thing. If I had to pay to go see it, I wouldn't. If you also read my previous comment to mexican apple theif, I said I wouldn't go as far as to call the events of 9/11 fake- I simply said the video makes you go "hmmm"- I'm not some close-minded loser who can't give credit where credit is due- the video to me wasn't so much about undermining the tragic events of the day but rather an attempt to make you think: what is the gov't capable of doing? I guess, according to you, my keeping an open mind and watching a free video makes me insane. ::)

I wouldn't go as far as to say it's all fake but I did watch the google movie and it actually does make you go "hmmm"- but then again I'm one of the fools obsessed with the Kennedy conspiracy :P...so if anyone watches it, opinions would be nice...the whole thing just left me confused.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Syracuse Visit

Hey guys,

I just saw Laurrk mention that she hadn't heard anything about Skyline apartments so I just thought I'd post this site that I've been using to get reviews of the apartments around my school in Pittsburgh:

http://www.apartmentratings.com/rate/NY-Syracuse-Skyline-Apartments.html

It only has 6 reviews for Skyline so I guess you can take it with a grain of salt but I just thought the site would come in handy for other apartments you were considering.
