You know, after seeing all of those pictures, it only makes my pro-choice beliefs stronger.  whoever posts *&^% like that is a screwed up whacko.

I could very well post some pictures of a woman performing an abortion on herself with a coat hanger, or a drunken delisenced doctor performing a third trimester abortion.  THOSE WOULD BE THE RESULTS OF BANNING ABORTION.

tis true

GW is gunnertopia


whast the story on the patent bar - i'm taking it this summer while also working as a judicial intern for a judge

can i realistically prepare for this thing while working also? the CDO told me that the test requires 200 hours of prep time, this strikes me as severe - is it really that hard? please gimme a heads up

I studied for 6 weeks and took 9 practice tests, passed on the first try.  The thing about the patent bar is that they are not releasing the old questions anymore. pre-2003 the test was on paper and the questions were released with the scores, 30-70% of the questions were always repeats.  Since they computerized the test, they don't release the questions, which makes it a lot harder.  I wouldn't be surprised if I barely passed.  My one piece of advice is to take the october 2003 exam last, a day or two before the real thing, I almost didn't take it because it had the lowest national pass rate of any of the tests that are available.  When I got to the test almost all of the repeats were from that exam, so I was really glad I did that one.

If someone can name me one time prohibition of anything has made the situation better, I will support pro-lifers.

prohibition of alcohol spurred the most violent organized crime in all of history

prohibition of drugs, particularly marijuana, has done nothing but lock nonviolent criminals up with longer sentences than rapists and murderers, flood the jails, and cost billions of dollars.  what percent of highschool students try illegal drugs?  I think it is like 40%. 

prohibition of firearms in England and Australia has led to skyrocketing violent crime rates.

No one is pro-abortion, everyone understands that it is a horrible thing.  If you make abortion illegal, you will give life long employment to every doctor who has ever lost his license.  The government will not be able to regulate it, so people will be aborting fetuses in the third trimester.  Live babies will be delivered in motel rooms and thrown in the trash.

Abortion is awful, but banning it would be worse. 

hey BigRig, I feel bad that my info made you second guess yourself.  I just thought it was something you would like to consider.  Don't let it ruin your week.

$1800/week is on the high side of market rate for a summer associate even in cities like DC and Atlanta, summer associates in medium size cities such as Charlotte or Richmond commonly make 1100-1500.  Shows how much you know.

Anyway, this is lame.  The fact that you don't see anything wrong with what you do is indicative of your character.  You haven't sat through a single law school class, yet you think you are qualified to determine who should and shouldn't be in lawschool, and who chose the wrong school?  You know nothing about lawschool.  You think you can bash everyone who goes to a school ranked below GW, yet you call people who prefer the T14 arrogant?  You are exactly like those people. 

People like you amuse me.  You spend your whole lives convincing yourself that you are better than other people because of your pay check, or your degree, or your school... You register at a law forum and tell seasoned law students that they will be ambulance chasers?  thats lame bro.  when I was in your position, the summer before I started law school, I was listening and learning and taking in everything I could.  You are already talking about why you are better than other people. 

My buddy was an engineer a year younger than me; one of the smartest, most humble, charismatic people I have ever met.  He had a personal tragedy the week before the october LSAT and made a 144.  You show up here and say anyone below 150 shouldn't be able to get a law degree?  What makes you think you are qualified to dictate that?

In the end, I have to thank you.  I drove home today with a smile on my face.  I didn't get mad at a single person who cut me off, or ran a light.  I went to the grocery store and bought some beer, the cashier screwed up and it took like 10 minutes to ring me up.  She said 'sir, I am so sorry' and I said 'no problem, have a great evening.'  Thats because you reminded me what a awful person is like, and I don't want to be anything like you.  You would have sat there for ten minutes and been thinking about how you were better than that 35 year old cashier, maybe even started yelling or asked for a manager.  People like you make the world a worse place, and lead sad, miserable lives. 

Have fun at GW.

Erapitt, I have never had a full-time summer associate postion, but I have plenty of work experience.  I got paid $1800 for one weeks work this semester, I wrote a trial brief for a firm out of Miami.  I have also done work for another firm, as well as pro bono work for a case that settled for $2 million. 

I have gotten through two years of law school, and passed the patent bar. 

YOU HAVEN'T EVEN HAD YOUR FIRST LAW SCHOOL CLASS!!!  you call everyone on this site names, and act like you know everything.  I can't wait until you get to lawschool. hahaha.


Does anyone have any thoughts on this?  I was all psyched to attend FSU but considering this and the residency transfer in limbo till June, excitement and anticipation is quickly turning to doubt and concern.

BigRig, I wasn't trying to put you off... crack a beer calm down.... like I said a couple times, it is just a factor for you to consider, it shouldn't be dispositive.

I think this is a troll thread.  There is no way you were GW law review, top of your class, wanted biglaw, and are now making $50K per year lol.

I make more than that now working for the government.

Quit trolling.  Top 10% at Catholic would get you a great job, let alone honors at GW.

OK... I just read through your posts.  You are the same retard that said brought us such insights as "No Yale, No State," and also stated that people get good jobs out of GULC because of mommy and daddy hahahha.  Your entire account exists to irritate people and now that it is known, nobody will pay anymore attention to you troll.

This guy hasn't even started school yet, and he thinks he can tell law students what is what.....

keep telling yourself that because your professors were law review at harvard, and mine were law review at yale, that you are smarter than I am.  you are a joke.  there is a reason that no one gives a @#!* about where your degree is from after your first job: because it doesn't say anything about you.  you are paying $36K per year for school, and you want to talk to me about wasting money?  thats funny.  You will have twice the debt I will for the same degree.  I bet you went to some snot-nosed, pretentious undergrad school too, didn't you?  How far in debt did you go for that?  Or did mommy and daddy bankroll it? 

PS - leave the library and go home.  your wife is in her car, that she owns 'outright,' on her way home from the hourly-rate motel, where she was banging someone who isn't a *&^%-eating, self-centered, elitist yankee.
