Distance Education Law Schools / Re: 1 L starting school in July 2010

If you make an assertion, it's up to you to back it up. Don't expect others to find support for your arguments. Now play nice, or I'm going to start cleaning up in here.

Law School Applications / Re: Is it too late to ask for a LOR?

It's never too late for a good LOR.

Thank you for your reply.

Any reason NOT to ask for it?

Best answer to why not to ask for one is if they don't know you or your work very well. I found that the best way to ask for a letter was to ask if they felt they could be a good reference and talk about things they might write, rather than just to ask for a letter.

You mean other than when I applied? ;D

No. I'm just going off the numbers people reported last year, and their results. You can find them at Law School Numbers.

Ole Miss and South Carolina are both a "maybe." You're right on the border between a wait list and admit.

Study harder before taking it again? If those are your schools of choice, the only options are that, and quitting.

I think this site will help you out. Good luck with your apps!

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: Cain or Obama?

Who would you prefer(and why) Cain or Obama?

Is this a trick question?

One guy is Harvard Law Review, meets with world leaders and knows them on a first-name basis, while the other guy has literally stated that he doesn't know who the president of "ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan" is.

Case closed.

Yeah, essentially this. But I'd still much rather have the choice of a real progressive.

Minority Topics / Re: URM - Let's all move backwards
« on: October 25, 2011, 05:20:30 PM »
Why do we even need this URM bull?  Do we really need to accept people that are less qualified?  Does the workforce really prefer inferior lawyers?  How are you entitled to gain an advantage from something that you had no power to control?  Should we be more lenient when it comes to admitting down syndrome folks?  Perhaps autistics ones?  Thoughts?  I feel like this affirmative action system is preventing the US from producing the best lawyers possible.

As an aside, it's your contention that non-white students are being admitted to schools they don't deserve to be in, right? But they're graduating. And we all know that law school exams aren't adjusted for race or subject to AA. And neither is the bar. So, what is it about exceeding your underestimation of their abilities that's their fault?

If I were you, I'd take a year. Get a job--a real job, mind you--and get some work experience doing what you learned in undergrad. Also take that time to reflect on why you want to go to law school, and more to the point, why you want to be a lawyer. If you're still feeling that itch, you can study for the LSAT and try it again, this time with a few entries on your resume to help you along.

No/No/No. Retake the LSAT.
