If it's your heritage, check the box. There isn't much of an admissions bump for claiming Native heritage, but it's something. Don't worry about not looking like a plains Indian, as most of the judgmental pricks who care about such things expect you to look. There are plenty of full-blooded Natives who don't.

I prefer to say that if you're born a white, Christian, heterosexual male, you start your life at second base in the baseball game of life. If you're born rich, you get an extra base and you get to hold onto the bat.

Then there's this awesome thing.

Transferring / Re: Process of Transferring From COOLEY
« on: May 13, 2012, 02:53:49 AM »
Thanks everyone for your advice. You have given me a lot to think about. I agree that I shouldn't go to Cooley if I expect to transfer. The odds are stacked against me and I should be ok with spending the next 3 years there if I have to. I know people who do go their now and do like it. I also have heard some good things regardless of its reputation. I think I can be ok with getting my law degree there, and Ill probably go part time.

I guess I am leaning toward the unlikely idea of being able to transfer because I don't want to wait and take the lsat again: mostly because I don't want to have to start paying back my student loans from undergrad since I won't be enrolled in school (btw...I did get my BA, Nova Juris :P).

I need to be realistic about this decision and I will continue to do my research, including contacting specific schools about their transfer process. Basically its not impossible to transfer but just really really hard. This was very helpful and Im going to consider alot of things before I make a decision. THANKS

For future reference: Nova Juris, there is way to be helpful in a respectful way. You are really condescending. Just something to think about.

wow, the person who barely passed undergrad and can't master the lsat with cooley as their best option giving me life advise. Thanks. That's swell.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Cooley vs Capital

Thanks for the link. It applies to a NY school, and Cooley aims it's marketing at those with unquestionably lower levels of education and logic ability (low gpa, low lsat, less than a BA,etc)

It seems likes apples to oranges, especially since their ranking system doesn't just talk of employment stats like the NY suit, it makes it claim to be more prestigeous and better overall than the other schools too. Yes most gradstudents can see the opinion in the rankings, but they basicly market them to handicap children who can't think properly for themselves anyways. If they were marketing 170 lsat scorers with 3.75 GPA and Masters in Marketing degrees, then I'd feel different.

They are targeting those who they know will fall for bright colors and flashing lights. AAMPLE just makes it even worse. Just because someone "wants" or even asks for something shouldn't make it legal to give it to them. (volcano insurance in Iowa for the elderly comes to mind as a fair comparison)

By blaming Congress, but not corporations and banks, you're saying that it's alright to bribe someone, but not to take a bribe. It's a two-way street.

Wait, your post count is 139 - are you d-dubbing now?  Do I need to quote you so I won't look like I'm talking to myself?

Huh.  Do you like it?  The mods always had such an Oz-like persona. :D

I d-dubbed for the third time down to just a few posts, got back up to 20-something before becoming a mod, and this is what's built up (can't d-dub as a mod unless you go to each individual thread, since there's no option to view my own posts) over the last 11 months. No *&^%. It's that f-ing dead.

As far as the power goes: stunning abuses of power. Absolutely stunning. But I mainly take it out on the spammers, who deserve everything they get, plus flaying of flesh from their backs.

Last May. Pretty much when I became the only old-time regular left who cared enough to take care of the spammers.

And yeah, we definitely need to get the band back together.
