caveat: Get patents if possible, otherwise any published theory can be build upon by others to make working models and get patents (presuming of course the PhD is on an actual patentable thing and not just some junk polysci thesis/dissertation).

Seems pretty open and shut dosn't it?

I'm a conservative, but I just cannot figure for sure what Romney would actually do or not if elected.  It feels like the guy is a walking contradiction and his proposed policies confuse the hell out of me.  Although I disagree vehemently with most of it, I at least know where Obama stands on issues. 


If elected, Romney, as POTUS, will cut funding for Amtrak, CPB (NPR/PBS), the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. I think, by Romney's estimates, this will basically get the US out of debt.

During the first debate, Romney was eerily silent about moon bases.
I believe that it was Ginrich that wanted Moon Bases. (although there is still debate on whether or not to build a new space station on the "darkside" of the moon soon)

Although any budget cut would save some money, I seriously dount that cutting the funding mentioned would get rid of the majority of US Debt (some, but by no means most).

Here is how I see it.

If Obama wins, He clearly has chosen Biden as his Human Shield. Not even the KKK is inbred enough to want that retard in charge, heck I bet the Klan would jump in front of a bullet to stop it. (notice how obama never reels Biden in, just lets his stupid be public?......yep, Obama ain't dumb)

If Romney wins, hell converse what I just said.

How are you to the point of enrolling in law school without any student loans? You on GI Bill, or just have parents pay for it?

Sorry, no trust fund or rich parents here. It was all scholarships from the state and my school, along with working a full time job at night.

I'm not at all looking down on student loans, I was genuinely asking how the interest works if you stay in school.
Hey if you can get scholarships more power to you. With any luck you can ride out the whole JD that way too, that would be f'n sweet!   ;)
Oh, and you'll see the spoiled richdads kids when you get in too. For some reason the girls tend to be the most obvious. They tend to be the ones who (no joke) get disgusted when anyone asks if they plan to practice after getting married (they don't, and you best spoil them like daddy)..... :P

If you want the joint degree, you have to make sure to have the right undergrad major (unlike the JD which allows any major, the medical majors tend to require specific undergrads) plus the admissions test for that program too apply.

Even the less competitive M.D. programs ususally require around a 3.5 GPA (hard science degree) and top 10% MCAT. Entirely different ball of wax than law school admissions.
I hadn't looked into the admissions requirments for the MD part, but it seems logical. You can fix a misswritten file a lot easier than a misgiven bloodtype infusion............... :o I can see how the standard would be higher.

Also, I am considering changing my major to support a better GPA any idea on how this will affect my performance?
If you keep your lsat score high and GPA above a 3.0 you should be fine at most places.

If you want the joint degree, you have to make sure to have the right undergrad major (unlike the JD which allows any major, the medical majors tend to require specific undergrads) plus the admissions test for that program too apply.

I will find some links to provide as examples (but assume there are others I missed)

28
My science GPA is only around a 2.8. I don't feel competitive enough for med school. I still have 3 years of science classes left so we shall see.
Either way best of luck. There are some schools that offer joint MD/JD and joint DPharm/JD (and possibly others too) degrees. Have you looked into those?

Those Doctor/Lawyers got to be have an edge in the hiring process and mega buck salaries.

Almost everything is plead, I live it trust me. A lot people don't know that they have a fighting chance in a trial  because of public defender quickness to avoid a trial. Most don't even read the specifics of the case before a plea is made. The buddy buddy system is alive and well with the DA and the public defenders office, and no one would publicly admit to this, but it is a fact. Some are guilty and I agree should take a plea, but when you scare uneducated defendants into taking pleas, with long sentences of 5 - 10 years most would take a plea rather than gamble because they don't know they have a better chance at trial, and the court appointed attorney advise them to take a plea. You can predict what will go on in a court room just by sitting there for a day or two with alarming accuracy. They have become victims of cookie cutter law!

It's sad but true!

What do you mean you "live it"? ???
Are you the court janitor or something? (or just an offender yourself)

I forgot before to add that student loan interest in normally tax deductable too (for what that helps in negating it as too big of an issue).
