Law School Applications / Why are Kerry Supporters so Violent?
« on: November 02, 2004, 12:36:05 AM »
Not trying to stereotype here, but the Kerry supporters here in DC (Ok, basically ALL of DC) are extremely rude and almost violent to those who wear a Bush pin. I am sure people get antagonized in the South for supporting Kerry, but it's getting ridiculous. I can't support the guy I like with a Bush pin because someone will get in my face. I am trying to get to work on the Metro and I get confronted by some j/o acting like I was in charge of the administration. I realize a lot of people are disappointed with the current adminstration (I know there are some choice words y'all prefer, but I don't like to swear so I'll leave it up to your imagination) but treating me like crap is NOT going to get me to change my vote or anyone around me. Sorry to rant on here, but I know this board is 75% for Kerry and was hoping y'all display much more civility in public. 

LSAC is overloaded with too many people logged on at the same time. I forgot to finish an Early Decision application, but I can't access the site :(. I'm sure there are a number of people out there that would appreciate the freed tie ups to the LSAC server. Thanks!

Law School Applications / Anyone Else Having Trouble Applying On LASCD?

I can't access the LSAC site. The error message says that too many people are logged on the site. How long has it been like this?

General Off-Topic Board / What are you dressing as for Halloween?
« on: October 29, 2004, 09:16:12 PM »
Never really dressed up or even went out for Halloween, but now that I am in a large city, I am going to try it out. Rented an awesome "black prince" (the Old English version not the artist ;)).

General Off-Topic Board / The Ultimate John Kerry AD

Since its apparent that everyone on this site is so gung-ho for Bush, I thought it would be nice to show some props for Kerry:


Law School Applications / Is the new curve really THAT bad?
« on: October 25, 2004, 01:35:19 PM »
I am really curious about the curve for the Oct 2004 LSAT. It seems like everyone thinks that it's hurting them but by how much? How much higher would your score be if the curve was like previous years? Do you think law schools will consider this curve when reviewing our applications or will they ONLY look at the LSAT score by itself?

I was waitlisted at two schools last year and wasn't accepted in either one at the very end. I work in a top 100 law firm and doing an internship at the same time with an international lobbying group. Additionally, I have update LORs and a new one that is probably better than one of the others. My LSAT went up 8 points but it is still below the 25% of both schools (the average). I know that my chances of getting in may improve slightly, but I wanted to know if anyone has gotten into a school they were waitlisted at the previous year (even if its someone else you know).

Decided to set up an AA site for those of us who are addicted to LSD (Law School Discussion for you newbies). I have been off of LSD for a few days and have stopped twitching LOL. Just checking to see all the other law school losers out there!

Law School Applications / Paralegal Jobs......Part II
« on: October 05, 2004, 11:56:19 AM »
I asked about this in early summer, but I was living in a small town in west Texas at the time. Now that I moved to DC and finished with the LSAT, I am going to start looking for a paralegal type job. I know that a job of this type will not set me apart from other law applicants, but I am really interested in the work and I actually just want a job that pays well until next year. Any suggestions? I realize that DC has a plethoria of law firms, but none are really hiring paralegals.....well not the kind that I qualify for. Each ad for a paralegal requires "2-3 years experience," "students from a top tier university," or "a minimum two year commitment." Where are all these temp positions everyone on these boards are getting. I have ZERO contacts in this area so all I have is a computer, a newspaper, and a prayer. Whatever y'all suggest will be much appreciated. I am at an internship currently, but I do not have fixed hours so I can work whenever. Oh and any suggestions on a cover letter? The worse part of this whole process is the freaking cover letter; I am drawing a blank on the approach.
