Or maybe we can just chat about the Cavs playing tonight and how much the series is on the line if they lose.   ???

Fire away.

Is Ohio State Law. How did Ohio State go up so much? Is it going to start creeping up to the other Big 10 law schools like Iowa, Minnesota and Illinois. Wisconsin has been a steady fixture in the low 30s for the last few years so is Ohio State there for good or while it drop again. I know the school got a 30 million dollar donation a few years back. Maybe it's finally kicking in? What accounts for the rise of the buckeye nation besides greg oden?
edit: OSU jumped from #39 to #31 in the USNWR rankings.

Toledo also jumped eight spots (93 to 85).  There may be others who jumped as high if not higher.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: WTF is up with CASE

Here's advice for the thread starter: If you're upset and have no intention of attending Case, then withdraw.

There are those, like Aut-6 and myself, who are on the waitlist and would actually attend if accepted.  Is it fair for us to lose a spot to fuel your ego trip?  Quite simply, get over yourself, and move on.

I want everyone to know that all the spots are filled for this fall, according to the letter I received today.  If you are on hold and not yet accepted, I'm sorry to say you are now on the summer waitlist and should get a letter soon.  I'm going to be withdrawing, so that's one less spot to worry about.

Toledo, here I come.

Damn, I'm still on hold.  Anyone else?

whats the difference?

this is not a sarcastic question, i am being serious. what exactly is the difference?

There's a bunch of changes to the films added to the new version.  Well, not really a bunch, but the effects are re-done and there are new scenes/alterations.  There are even mistakes, such as Luke's lightsaber turning green when it is blue in other scenes.

These seemingly negligible differences upset the purists.  I'm kind of in between: I don't mind most of the changes, but I want to see the movies as they were released in the theaters.

General Off-Topic Board / Original Star Wars versions coming to DVD

Ah, crap, I bought the new versions already.  I'm going to have to sell those and get the original, untouched versions now.

Damn you Lucas (but at the same time, thanks for coming to your senses finally).   :o

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / On Hold at Case
« on: April 01, 2006, 03:04:36 PM »
I received a letter today telling me I'm on hold on Case Western Reserve.  How are my chances of getting in?  They said "we do admit many student whose files have been placed on hold."  Anyone else on hold here?

I'm going to write a letter to them to increase my chances of getting in.  Any advice on what I should say to them?  Thanks.

Edit: Also, what's the difference between hold and waitlist?

my experiences have been that attorneys are more liberal than conservative, but not necessarily by much- maybe a 65/35% split.  The state you are in, as well as the immediate practice area matter.

Keep in mind, however, that attorneys are like doctors: one you are a client, they sort of put blinders on and serve them no matter their own personal beliefs

Interesting perspective, although I would say a 65/35 split is pretty major.  If lawyers tend to be more liberal, is this the reason judges are more liberal (if they are)?

I'm curious about this.  Do lawyers as a group tend to lean one way or the other, as college professors do?  Or is there really no difference between lawywers and the general population's political views?  Or, the third option, maybe different type of lawyers tend to have different views  ???

Your thoughts are welcome  :o
