It sounds like the lecturer was trying to reinforce the idea that truthful statements are prohibited in advertising if they are misleading. A layperson seeking a med mal lawyer might think they are contacting a medical doctor/lawyer if the ad states "juris doctor."

I agree that you that may not use a title to mislead, but "Dr. Dre" is a stage name and "Dr. Seuss" is a pen name.

Mo' money, mo problems.

On a related note, YLS has just established the first program for a Ph.D. in law. Doctor squared?

Here's the employment data for ABA approved schools. Perhaps this list can help you determine whether the law schools you listed are worth the investment.

That would make the eviction process awkward, no?

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Is Harvard the best college?

Correct me if I am wrong, but Harvard, for some reason, is at the top of the totem pole of society.  I am going to apply there.  Is it the best college in the world?

Reasonable minds disagree about your assertion. In some circles, Princeton is more highly regarded because of its eating clubs and because "Prince" is included in its name. Others argue that Yale is at the top of the "totem pole of society" because Rory Gilmore chose to attend Yale over both Harvard and Princeton. Finally, others argue that Oxford is the best because it's British.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is a Prep Course worth it for me?

I hate how commercial law school admissions has become. That said, I'd say the cost of an LSAT prep course is well worth it in comparison to the potentially large gain you could derive from an improved LSAT score. While Testmasters is a benchmark course, there are other options available (e.g., Kaplan, Velocity, Powerscore, Blueprint). Also, based on the number of practice tests you've taken, it sounds like you have to discipline to consider an online class.

low and behold, eh?  why not high and behold?

Enquiring minds want to know (catchphrase developed to promote the National Enquirer)?

The word 'lo' as used in this phrase is a shortening of 'look'. So, lo and behold! has the meaning of look and behold. Lo in this and its other meaning, which is more akin to O!, has been in use since the first Millennium and appears in the epic poem Beowulf.
