florida, probably. 

probably not california or new york.

however:  if you used any of those funds for law school attendance, then maybe.

I've worked in food service and gotten every complaint in the book. This is why I'm usually very clear in my language and use words like "instead" when I want a substitution and "no" when I don't want it there at all. If you did this and they still screwed it up, there should be a law that says you can throw it at them.


you'd throw your weenie at them?


lol @ julie

hmmm......

elements of fraud:

   1. a representation of an existing fact;
   2. its materiality;
   3. its falsity;
   4. the speaker's knowledge of its falsity;
   5. the speaker's intent that it shall be acted upon by the plaintiff;
   6. plaintiff's ignorance of its falsity;
   7. plaintiff's reliance on the truth of the representation;
   8. plaintiff's right to rely upon it; and
   9. consequent damages suffered by plaintiff.

we are fine with meeting each element until we get to number 9 -- what are the damages?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Deciding amongTier 3/4 Schools

Plans/Hopes:
-interested in public interest law, specifically environmental law
-would like to work for non-profit or gov't
-ok with leaving law school with degree and returning to gov't work similar to prelaw school (there are a lot of lawyers running around here that don't actually practice but have jobs i'd like)


What kind of agency/government do you work at right now that has lots of lawyers running around?  Do they do legeal work or work that can be done by non-attorneys?


i work at DOI, and they tripped over themselves to hire me because of my law degree, even though i am not practicing law for them per se.

i wanted to work for the feds though, and that was my aspiration through law school, so....ymmv depending on your career goals.
