Yes, Liz, you're absolutely correct!  :)  The LSAT interprets ALL to include MOST (in the direction of the ALL) and SOME (reversible). 

A --> B
A MOST B   (one way from A to B)
A SOME B   (same as B SOME A)

I'm applying to Law School for Fall 2007; I'm 27/28.  I'm debating whether to apply to PT or FT program:  I don't know if I want to be in a room full of 22 year olds.  I'd appreciate everyone's insight on pros and cons of PT or FT.  Thanks!

Completely useless economics masters degree.

I'll be 26 when I start law school, and I completely understand the "not wanting to be in a room full of 22 year olds". actually, the average age of entering law students has increased steadily over the last few years as law schools are favoring students with more life/work experience. look for schools that have a larger population of non traditional students in their full time programs; they will generally provide distributions of age ranges. i actually asked the admissions depts everywhere I applied.

can u post em?  :)

Ditto...I'd like to see them too!  :)

To me being a lawyer has its advantages - money and freedom, and being a air force officer has its advantages - interesting and satisfying work.  Becoming a JAG officer seems to lack any of the advantages. 
From my understanding the only way the AF will pay for law school is through a program where current AF officers are selected.  You have to have already been an officer for 2 years.  This might be something I'd be interested in, but if I get selected and join, I wouldn't be thinking about law school for at least some time.
I think the only way I'd go is if I got an intel position and even then I'd have to see how I fel about withdrawing from Northwestern. 
Could some of you intel people tell me what job prospects are like after the AF?

Well, best of luck!  I'm not sure I understand the distinction you're making between the two, but that's OK because obviously these decisions are very personal ones.  Best wishes,

~Chris

Thanks for the inputs, Jarhead.  I've been on leave for the last two weeks so just saw these responses. 

Bachismo: If I understand you correctly, you're already accepted into NW?  Have you looked into becoming a JAG?  The Air Force might even pay you to go to school, under the right set of conditions.  May be worth it to check with a JAG-specific recruiter on that (don't ask the regular ones, they may lie to you).  Website for JAG recruiting is: http://www.jagusaf.hq.af.mil .  Good luck!!!

I honestly don't understand this question. Why wouldn't you work hard to write the best PS you possibly can? Are you hoping someone comes on this board and says, "don't worry, you're a lock for Harvard." In that case, would you submit a PS that consists mostly of fart jokes?

OMG!!!  ROFLMAO!!  This is the Official First Time I've laughed out loud on LSD (the website, not the stamp).  Thanks, South!
