Don't sweat it. People screw up sometimes, and people have gotten in with far worse. If it's something you need to explain, or have worked to resolve--like a drug treatment program--just write an addendum explaining what you did to fix it, and how it's made you a better person. But again: don't sweat it.

It's cool. There are a few people who sell products and services here. The main differences, it seems, between a spammer and a legitimate vendor are: 1) products and services related to legal education and practice, and 2) contributing in ways aside from hawking one's goods.

Law School Applications / Re: university of washington
« on: July 12, 2013, 07:14:25 PM »
You've got schools from a lot of areas of the US listed there. The school you attend plays an extremely important role in where you work, so you need to ask yourself, "In which city or even state do I ideally want to work?" If you want to work in Washington state, UDub is definitely the way to go. If you want to build your career in Boston, BU, BC, and Fordham are options, though reaches, at your current numbers. If you want to work in Colorado, with a markedly diminished opportunity of working in Denver (since you didn't go to DU) that's also a possibility with your current numbers. If you want to be able to pick your market after you graduate, you definitely need to retake and do well enough to get into a school that would allow you to do that, but very few schools do.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Search function

There is no search function, at least a working one. The best option is to go to Google, enter your search terms as usual, then add site:lawschooldiscussion.org at the end.

There are case briefs for every case you'll encounter on Wikipedia, and in Westlaw and Lexis-Nexis.

Acceptances / Re: Nebraska Law or Denver/Sturm Law?

If you want to practice in Colorado, go to school in Colorado. It really is just that simple. If you want to work in Denver, specifically, do whatever you must to go to DU. Better still, start making local contacts in the legal community. You can talk with Judge Alfred Harrell at the Denver County/Municipal Court about going to meetings of the Inns of Court, where you will meet local attorneys, get to know them, and best of all, let them get to know you.

1) Can you explain to me what lawyers do?

1) Lawyers practice law.


This brief response conveyed far more than I'm sure even you wanted it to. Don't go to law school.

One of the posters here a couple years ago--active duty Navy, Annapolis grad--tried to get into JAG and wasn't accepted. It's incredibly hard to get in.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: JD or DBA or both?
« on: April 10, 2013, 02:08:10 PM »
If you must do one, do the DBA. Based on what you wrote here about your career, you don't even need to go to law school. You certainly won't need a JD. If you want to learn about areas of law that affect your career in logistics, you can go to law school for a limited time, learning only the things that apply to what you do and what you want to know. These programs are generally called a Master of Legal Studies or Master of Studies in Law.
