Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Application for Concord and ALU

Hmm, this is quite tricky. A letter of recommendation would be a good idea. Do you not trust your current employer? Why don't you want them to know?

Well, if you'd like my opinion, here goes: if you don't want to come across as a victim, you could say that you befriended the other girls that were volunteering and that was what inspired you. Would you say this helps?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Lawyer Making Products

What do you mean by extraneous lawyer making products ? I did buy books to study for the LSAT but I don't feel like a real lawyer yet.

Tulsa / Re: TU Now Tier II

Who said this is a bad school? Old rankings don't count anymore, there are good schools that dropped a few spots and made room for improved schools so, yeah, TU is ok to get into now.

I agree with AlwaysSunny. It does matter a little where you went to school but as long as you study hard and keep your scores up you shouldn't encounter any problems.

Tim, if you say you need to study more to get an even higher LSAT score I'd say you'll nail it at the real exam. What school do you want to apply to?

Law School Applications / Re: Addendum Question

Well, if you have extra issues that you feel the need to write down, you could write one but with such a good LSAT score and GPA I'd say you can easily get into law school. 

Job Search / Re: For all those who cry about our jobs stats......

From what I heard, it's hard to get a job even as a janitor with the economy these days so, yeah, attending law school doesn't mean you'll necessarily be a lawyer after you graduate.

2L job search / Re: Do I have to be a US citizen to practice law?

If you're really good, someone might hire you in no time, it's just that the employer need to deal with a lot of paperwork and stress to make you a "legal employee" so to say :)

3L job search / Re: Studying for the BAR, huge DEBT, no JOB, WHAT DO DO?
« on: September 23, 2012, 05:34:49 AM »
Have you decided what to do yet?
I work as a project manager, at an IT firm and so I managed to put some money aside but I was already working when I decided to attend law school. I know it's hard but with a bit of luck everything might turn out OK for you.
