Law School Admissions / PinkTiki?
« on: December 06, 2007, 11:13:25 AM »
I just noticed that PinkTiki on LSD is reporting that s/he got into NYU on Monday, but it doesn't seem like anybody else has heard. 

What's the deal?

PS: Sorry if PinkTiki is a person who posts on here...i'm not drinking the haterade, I'm just curious about that particular profile.

Law School Admissions / People need to stop sending us big envelopes
« on: December 01, 2007, 12:06:24 PM »
I keep getting large envelopes and glossy packets in the mail from...Pottery Barn.  And Citibank.  They get my hopes up when I open my mailbox, only to disappoint me in the end.  You know what I'm saying?

Today, I saw a big booklet in the mail from HYS and got REALLY excited...only to realize that they were sending me mail b/c I went there for undergrad...and they were asking for money.  Boo.

Law School Admissions / What are your Application OCDs?
« on: November 06, 2007, 06:37:24 AM »
So, I only submitted all of my applications yesterday, but already I've noticed that I check MyDocs pretty much every half hour to see if schools are requesting my report.  WHY do I do this??  Maybe it's the coffee.  I think it might be the coffee.

Anyone else have compulsive post-application-submission ticks, or am I the only weirdo?  ???

General Off-Topic Board / chef boyardee
« on: January 08, 2007, 09:31:15 PM »
i realize it's an objectively disgusting food product, but I still eat it for those late nights when i'm somewhat irrational, and it's always struck me as disturbing that the stuff seems to be radioactive.  anybody else eat chef boyardee stuff?  it turns whatever it touches orange, and absolutely no substance known to man can wash it out.


back to my "spaghetti"-os and "meatballs"..

General Off-Topic Board / Cool jobs?
« on: December 27, 2006, 06:15:36 PM »
Anybody have one?  I'm job-searching right now (for something after I graduate), and I figured I'd ask folks on here if anybody has had a really good job that they want to point me towards...internet searches only get a girl so far!

so anybody wanna share some love?

General Off-Topic Board / What field would you go into if not law?
« on: December 26, 2006, 04:53:04 PM »
I've been thinking about this a lot lately - if I decide to switch careers in ten years, or if I have a breakdown and give up on law school entirely, what would I do?

Here are my Career Pipe Dreams of 2006:

* Voice talent in animated TVs/movies
* Quilter
* Housemom
* Advertising executive
* Sketch comedy writer
* Bedwarmer for celebrities
* Supreme Court Justice (apparently, there's no requirement that you are actually an attorney!  I'm going to take for granted that my charm will get me through the confirmation hearings.)
* Kindergarden teacher

General Off-Topic Board / I miss Arrested Development. Very much.
« on: December 25, 2006, 10:31:16 PM »
I'm casting my vote for best TV attorney: Bob Loblaw of Arrested Development.  You have to say it out loud.

Even better, for those who haven't seen the Bob Loblaw episodes, try to avoid laughing when saying Loblaw's internet contribution, the "Bob Loblaw Law Blog."

Perfect.  What a great freaking show.

Okay, I realize that everybody has pretty much applied to law school already and nobody is really thinking about applying again...

But I'm applying next cycle, and I've been planning on working hardcore on all of my applications over this summer so I can get them in immediately after the cycle begins.  My question: are the application materials even available on LSAC that early?  I know schools don't start accepting applications until September or October, but when do they go online?

If any of you worked on pieces of your app this summer?  What did you do?  Was it just general PS-writing stuff?

Law School Admissions / Do schools care about your Grad School GPA?
« on: December 24, 2006, 08:22:24 AM »
I know schools look closely at your UGPA, but what if you are applying to law school with a master's degree under your belt?  will they look at your GPA from the Master's program?

This is my situation, and I predict my master's GPA will be higher than my UGPA (3.6) (knock wood).  Will a higher grad school GPA mitigate a mediocre UGPA?

Studying for the LSAT / Is transferring really the way to go?
« on: December 22, 2006, 12:52:54 PM »
Not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but there's been a lot of talk on here about transferring to a T14 after your first year somewhere else - is this really the way to go?  My impression is that you would have to work so hard in your first year in order to transfer successfully, and then you'd be starting at a brand new school as a 2L without any faculty connections, without a spot on the law review, etc.

Again, sorry if this is the wrong thread for the LSAT forum, but this is where I've seen so much of the transferring talk.

Just curious if anybody has any experience with this.
