Where should I go next fall? / SMU Law 3L Taking Questions
« on: January 19, 2011, 03:45:04 AM »
Hey law school applicants!  I was in your position a few years ago and I want to now give back to the community and answer some questions.  Shoot away!  A little about me.  I am a transfer student that transferred from a school in the 60s range to SMU which is in the 40s range.  I now have 1 year left, and I do have a job already.  Anyway, feel free to ask any questions you may have.

I have taken some videos of USD law to show prospective students the beautiful campus and classrooms.

If you want other videos of campus locations or of San Diego in general, then let me know and I will see what I can do.
USD is THE most beautiful campus in the most beautiful city with the best weather. USD has been the best choice I have made in a while, dont take my word for it, watch the videos and judge for yourself.

Here is a letter that was written by Ron Paul to his supporters:

September 20, 2007

Message from Ron Paul

Dear friend,

Our American way of life is under attack. And it is up to us to save it.

The world's elites are busy forming a North American Union. If they succeed, as they did in forming the European Union, the good ol' USA will only be a memory. We cannot let that happen.

The UN wants to confiscate our firearms and impose a global tax. The UN elites want to control the oceans with the Law of the Sea Treaty. And they want to use our military to police the world.

Our right to own and use property is fading because bureaucrats and special interests are abusing eminent domain.

Our right to educate our children as we choose is under assault. "No Child Left Behind" is seeing to that. And our right to say "no" to forced mental screening of our school-aged children is nearly gone.

The elites gave us a national ID card. They also gave us the most misnamed legislation in history: The Patriot Act. And these same people are pushing to give amnesty to illegal immigrants and erase our national borders.

Record government debt is putting a burden on our children and grandchildren that is shameful.

Yes. Our American way of life is under attack. And it's understandable that many are concerned, even discouraged, about the kind of country our children and grandchildren will inherit.

But we must never let discouragement become surrender.

One reason I am NOT discouraged is because I know I am not fighting alone. Each day I head out I know that you and thousands of other patriotic, freedom-loving Americans are right beside me, standing brave and true for what is good and right.

I need your help now, more than ever, to save the country we love...for the people we love.

My wife Carol and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary early this year. We are proud parents of five children and 18 grandchildren. We love them very much, as I know you love your family.

As a U.S. congressman, I always think about the well-being of my family and of all the families of our great nation when I cast a vote or introduce legislation. I also remember that I have sworn a solemn oath to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States.

For me, upholding that oath is the first and best way to preserve and protect the blessed American way of life for our children and grandchildren.

And now you know why I'm running for president of the United States.

I ask for your help. Please send your maximum donation today by going to https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/ .

Sincerely,

Ron

Here is another letter that he wrote to his supporters:

October 17, 2007

The other day, my old sparring partner in so many Congressional committee hearings, Alan Greenspan, was on the Fox Business Channel. After Alan promoted his new book, the reporter asked if we really needed a central bank. Greenspan looked stunned, and then said that was a good question; he actually talked about fiat money vs. a gold standard. Now, the ex-Fed chairman is not about to endorse our sound monetary policy, but you know our Revolution is working when such a question is asked in the mainstream media, and this powerful man gives such an answer.

You and I are reopening a whole host of questions that the establishment thought it had closed off forever: on war, on taxes and spending, on inflation and gold, and on the rule of law and our Constitution.

A few years ago, I asked a famous conservative columnist a question. What did he think about the prospects for a restored Robert Taft wing of the Republican party? He thought I was joking. As you know, I was not.

After all the aggressive wars, the assaults on our privacy and civil liberties, the oppressive taxation, and the crazed spending and deficits, I believe that many Republican voters are ready to return to our roots. And the big boys feel it too. It is no coincidence that the Republican National Committee invited me to a fundraising dinner involving only "top-tier candidates."

Some of the opposition claims that I am not a "real Republican," whereas I am the only one in the race. And our campaign is registering new Republican voters by the boatload. None of my opponents is doing anything approaching that.

Of course, they pooh-pooh our success. "He's just registering Democrats and Independents and people who have never voted before." Well, yes. It's called growth. We are laying the groundwork for the primaries.

All over America, our support is wide and deep and growing, and young people are joining like never before. After the Dearborn debate, I went to the University of Michigan for a rally. 2,000 students turned out, something that has happened to no other candidate this year.

The crowd cheered all our ideas, but especially our opposition to the Federal Reserve, and our support for real money of gold and silver, as the Constitution mandates, instead of prosperity-wrecking fiat money. American politics hasn't seen anything like this in many decades. It is truly revolutionary.

But time is getting short. We must do massive radio and TV advertising, open many small offices (three in just South Carolina the other day), staff them, pay all the bills, and turn out our vote with massive organizational and phone-bank efforts.

As you know, the blackout is ending; our campaign is starting to get mainstream media attention, thanks to growing donations and volunteers. And contributions are the key to more attention, and to our being able to do the actual work of victory. Good news: our recent green-eyeshade analysis of all the candidates' net finances, which got so much press attention, shows our campaign as one of only three in the top-tier.

But we must keep moving up, and the Iowa caucuses are now on January 3rd. The New Hampshire primary may be in early December!

As always, everything depends on you. Please, make the most generous donation you can

https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/ as soon as you can. I need your help so badly.

The other day, an 8-year-old boy handed me a small white envelope. It contained the $4.00 he had saved from his allowance, as a donation to our campaign. I can't tell you how seriously I take my responsibility to work hard, and spend frugally and effectively, to be worthy of his support, and yours.

Please help me keep working, even harder and more effectively, for all we believe in. Without you, I'd have to pack it in. Donate now https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/ .We have more than an election to win. We have a country to save.

Ron Paul

« on: August 06, 2007, 12:44:29 PM »
I am starting this thread to get a checklist for people that are moving to law school.
List all of the things that will need to be done to complete the move.
I will update this list as we get more responses.

I will start with the following:

1. Get a Penske truck not Uhaul.  (Penske is cheaper most of the time, and much much   
   better customer service)
2. Contact all of the companies you owe money to and give them your new address
3. Think about getting new drivers license and plates/stickers.
4. Forward your mail (with USPS and directly with your employer).
5. Close out your bank account if local to your area--research and open a new account   
   where you move.
6. Pack:
        Highlighters
        Notebooks (if you don't use a laptop. If Laptop then bring that)
        #2 Pencils (for end of year scantron loving)
        Money for books
        Post-It tabs
        Balls of Steel

7. -shotglasses

8. -emergen-c for the inevitable hangovers that follow from using the shotglasses

Studying for the LSAT / What did the SCALE for JUNE 2007 look like?
« on: June 29, 2007, 04:47:40 PM »
Hey June test takers, what was the scale on this one?

10
I am an EE and would like to pursue a career in Patent/IP law.  I was just accepted to Santa Clara.. I know that Santa Clara is really well regarded in IP law.  Up until this point I was 100% sure about attending USD, but now I am second guessing.. I am still quite sure I will be in San Diego this Fall, but I wanted to post this to see the responses I get.. Maybe they will sway me one way or the other.
