General Off-Topic Board / Eternal Life
« on: July 12, 2012, 02:22:46 PM »
What is eternal life?  Well, basically, everything is a factory.  There is a higher power.  Call it the higher power.  The factory and higher power are invisible.  Thus, that's where the term "The Invisible Hand" comes from.  Eternal life is when you hit the jackpot in the factory and live forever and your life continuously improves for eternity.

I have eternal life.  Any questions?

I got a 166 on the LSAT in October 2005.  That's 93-94 percentile which means I scored better than 93-94% of test takers during the preceding three years.  I am thinking about retaking it again and attempt to break the 170 barrier.  If you'd like my expert advice on the LSAT, I welcome questions.

Studying for the LSAT / Which is harder, GMAT or LSAT?
« on: July 12, 2012, 01:45:09 PM »
I started studying for the GMAT.  I already took the LSAT.  I'd say the LSAT is tough.  Although, now, I bet $20 I can get above a 170.  The GMAT has 90 questions whereas the LSAT has about 100.

Bar Exam / Do you have to go to law school?

If I want to become a lawyer, can I forego law school and simply take the Bar Exam?

Columbia U / Should I go to Columbia Law?
« on: July 09, 2012, 03:25:36 PM »
I'm thinkin' 'bout it. 

Back in '07 I went to 'SC Law, but I dropped out and moved to Hollywood (that's kinda the reason why I went there in the first place  ;)).  My gpa is 3.56 and I had an LSAT of 166.  I have "soft-factors" I think are strong. 

Where should I go next fall? / Unsure where to go
« on: July 09, 2012, 03:20:31 PM »
I attended the University of Southern California's law school in 2007, but I dropped out.  I am considering going back to law school.  This time around, I am unsure about where to go.  I'd like to choose one school and focus on getting in there.  That's the way I am with getting a second bachelor's degree.  I have tunnel vision on Boston University where I want to get a degree in economics.  On my shortlist for law schools is Columbia.  That may be the one.

However, maybe I'll scrap all plans of going back to school in favor of playing music...

Pointless Arguments / Am I a Jew?
« on: July 06, 2012, 02:43:05 PM »
According to my mom, her biological grandfather had the surname Katz.  He was from the Ukraine.  That would make him my biological great grandfather on my mother's side.  So, does that make me a Jew? 

Non-Traditional Students / Am I a non-trad?
« on: July 05, 2012, 12:33:06 PM »
I got a 166 on the LSAT in 2005.  Attended USC law.  Then dropped out.  And now, five years later, I am thinking about going back to law school.  I am 29 years old.

General Board / My Goal
« on: July 05, 2012, 11:56:18 AM »
My goal is to get a second bachelor's degree.  This time in economics.  I have chosen to apply to Boston University.  What are my chances of admittance?  I mean, now I am 29 years old; soon to be 30.  I already have a bachelor's degree from the University of Maine, my GPA was ~3.56; I attended the University of Southern California Law School; I finished fifth in my class in high school; I was in the National Honor Society in high school; then in college I joined Pi Mu Epsilon and Phi Beta Kappa.  Furthermore, since elementary school, I received numerous awards in classes and physical fitness.  In high school, too.  For example, in high school, I received the Daughters of the American Revoultion Good Citizenship award twice, my freshman year and senior year.  I also got the Semper Fidelis award.  And, if I am not mistaken, I had the best grade point average in Spanish II.  And I've held a bunch of jobs over the years, including as an assistant manager at CVS/pharmacy in Boston.  My salary was like 39K annually.  And I sold about $ 2 million of merchandise at a car and truck dealership in North Hollywood California. And, I can play the "Crazy Train" solo!

But I've only had one girlfriend... ;-(
