Columbia U / Should I go to Columbia Law?
« on: July 09, 2012, 01:25:36 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.

Choosing the Right Law School / Unsure where to go
« on: July 09, 2012, 01:20:31 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...

Roald, are you a computer?  Just kidding.  Well, some call USC the University of Spoiled Children.  I guess I am a little spoiled, even though I was on welfare throughout puberty.

I kinda did that.  I mean, I worked my way up to assistant manager at CVS/pharmacy in Boston, MA.  But that was before I attended law school for the first time.  After I dropped out of law school, I worked at a car and truck dealership in North Hollywood, CA.  I must've sold about $ 2 million of merchandise.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Should I master the LSAT?

I voted for Barack in '08 and I am going to vote for him again.  And I wanted Gore to win in '00 and Kerry to win in '04.  So, probably, I am a Democrat.

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.

Current Law Students / My Goal

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... ;-(

Since I took the LSAT in 2005, I attended the University of Southern California Law before I dropped out, lived in a hostel in Hollywood for half a year, then worked at a Ford dealership in North Hollywood, CA, and had a stint with Greenpeace, and also worked at Toyota Hollywood, and I also worked for a telephone fundraising company in Korea Town, Los Angeles.  I must've sold about $ 2 million of merchandise at the Ford dealership.  My score on the LSAT in 2005 was 166.  Perhaps if and when I take the LSAT again, and if I score at least a 166 again, then I can get into a more presitigious law school than Gould because of my additional "soft" factors.

Questions:

1: How independently driven are you/ how much do you need oversight and deadlines for motivation?

I am independently driven and I don't need oversight.  Although there is a higher power above us all.  To me, everything is like a factory, and I'm my own boss.

2: What level of boredom are you comfortable with during working hours?

Boredom?  What matters the most is sex, and as long as that condition is met, there is no boredom. 

3: How much money do you want to make five years after law school and how much debt will you need to go into?

Jack24, I can already make millions of dollars a day.  Lately I have been thinking about becoming a billionaire farmer. 

4: Can you deal with pushing paper for a living or would you need a great paralegal to do most of that for you?

The Invisible Hand can take care of that.

5: Can you give up what you want now for what you want in the future if it will take you several years to get it?

I inherited eternal life, so I got all the time in the world.
