Law School Admissions / Re: Show me the money . .. . . What would you do?
« on: September 16, 2004, 07:00:52 AM »
Only because I know that you have STCL as a backup school and would be competing with me. GO MAKE THE MONEY!LEAVE THE COUNTRY!. Seriously though happiness has nothing to do with money. I have been so broke that I could not buy anything to eat for 3 months except bologna and bread and lost like 30 lbs and then there is now where there is nothing that I want that I could not go out and buy (except maybe yacht, ferrari etc) But I am very comfortable financially. I am happy but I was happy broke too. Life is not about chasing money it's about chasing dreams.I am going to be 30 soon and still chasing my dreams. Never give up. But the part about being able to pay for school if you saved would be nice though.

Well a note of confidence for you. You DON'T have the lowest GPA of anyone applying to an ABA school. I too have a 2.06. I would have had you beat but they figured in a few juco classes I took and it pulled it UP yes UP to a 2.06 from a 2.04 degree granting GPA. Anyway that was a long time ago so screw it. Some school WILL let me in oh yes they WILL. AND YOU TOO!

Actually the fee waiver came separate. They mailed me a package that had a letter stating "with you academic credentials ther is no doubt many law schools are sending you material bla bla bla and then stated to send it in with my application and there would be no fee." I almost shat myself laughing.My outstanding academic credentials  HAHAHAHA I have a 2.06 GPA yes that is 2.0 and 6/100ths NOT 2.6. Seriously they must be smoking crack. I really don't get it. Maybe I could sell it on ebay for $25 to someone who might have a chance. It's a good deal half price application fee! Any takers?

At least your a little bit closer to their 25% on LSAT and GPA. I am no where near!

See what I mean. What are they thinking?!

Ok seriously. They sent me a fee waver a packet and an email invitation to an open house at the end of september.  I have a 2.06 GPA and a 159 LSAT. Is someone at the admissions office drunk? Do they send this to everyone just to screw with them? I am praying just to get into a T4 school. Why would a top 20 school do that to me. It must be like in the movie Never been kissed where Drew Barrymore gets invited to the prom by the popular guy and he shows up and throws eggs on her prom dress. I am going to call them tomorrow and ask if I can talk to the practical joker who keeps sending me this stuff and tell them that it is not nice being mean to underacheivers

You are correct about the referrals. And I do have quite a few atty friends in Houston. But suprisingly the one's who are doing the best have the smallest % of busisnes from referrals. I have one freind practicing family law (who is not such a good business person) and he is running his practice on about 90% referrals. He is starving right now. You gotta make it happen for yourself and count on referrals only to be used for the Harley Davidson fund!

I do have a friend who is going to help me. He is a bankruptcy atty. Started out on his own right away and has been practicing for about 4 years now. But if you think about it it is just like any other business. You are providing a service. I plan on taking out small business loans keeping my overhead low in the beginning and sinking most of my working captiol into advertising. How would a network of freinds help? Maybe they could give me money or buy me beer when I am initially up to my eyes in debt but other than that I really don't think they would be all that beneficial. Most people who file bankrupty or divorce just go to the yellow pages or respond to advertising just like they would for any other service that they don't frequently use. There really is alot of money out there for atty's who are willing to help JoBob save his trailer and then help Suzie take it from him when they get divorced. And on top of that you get repeat from JoBob who will likely get a couple of DWI's while he tries to drink his sorrows away

just realized that your moniker said BLAKE aggie, and not BLACK aggie. 

i always thought you were a black man going to school but had a white kid. 


I think there would have been some serious paternity issues if I were black. As it is I am just a light shade of khaki.
