Not unless it's a reputed diploma mill, which I doubt if they have sports teams.

Stop crossposting from closed threads. They're closed for a reason.

Don't be so serious amidst all our idiocy and jostling.

Julie condemns all repubs, whilst supporting Newt and then Rick-  What doesn't mesh?

San Dimas High School football rules!!!!!


Isn't San Dimas where Bill and Ted began their excellent adventure?



Yep. And "San Dimas High School football rules" is how the student presenting before Bill and Ted finished his speech. Before that, I think he said something along the lines of, "Everything's bigger, but smaller. It's computers." It's been ages since I last saw that movie.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: My advice to the starting 1Ls (LONG)

Advice for a 0L who will be living in her law school city the summer before law school? Best way to start networking before school starts?

Go to the first post in the thread, read each bullet point, and if it's something you can do, do it. Also, go back through posts by Matthies and take from them all the wisdom you can.

Because the search function is crap, and that won't change. But dot knows that; she's a forums vet.

Locked out of what?

If you see people banned or shouted down at TLS, send them a PM to invite them here. The information is good, with a dose of realism. Only the traffic is lacking, and that's easily fixed.

Not a bad idea (in theory) but how can you PM a Banned member?

Obviously, you can't. So that would go more with the "shouted down" part of my post. As an option for a banned user, you can send an e-mail, if it's public in their profile, which should still be visible even when banned.

What you studied in undergrad likely isn't going to have any impact on what you choose to study in law school. Your first year is going to be packed with the same classes everyone else takes. While you may have had an interest in one area in undergrad, that will almost certainly change by the end of 1L. Only one of many people I've known who had a plan going into 1L ended up sticking to the plan, and that's because she had connections in a highly specialized area of law where connections are key. For example, one was set on criminal law and ended up studying communications law. It's all about what strikes your interest, and anything related to the law that you were exposed to in undergrad really isn't going to give you enough of a taste to really know.

As far as IP law: yeah, hard sciences are it. The patent bar isn't even an option unless you have a strong background in the sciences. While you can take the patent bar with a certain number of credits in engineering/science/technology, getting a job with an IP firm is another matter. Realistically, we're talking a Masters in Engineering or Computer Science or a Ph.D in Bio or Chemistry.

So many of his awesome posts were deleted. Matthies, I'll miss your humor, your guidance, your fixations and your bitterness.

Oh, and Exile is unlocked now.
