After putting out a psychotic 17 applications, I am having some second thoughts about whether I should really go to law school. When I made the decision to take the LSAT and start the process it all seemed so clear, but the intervening 5 months have taken some of the shine off the apple so to speak.

I have moved back to the midwest from San Diego, in order to save money prior to school, started a new job with another technology company that again has potential to grow rapidly, and potentially lucratively and I find myself faltering in purpose. Is anyone else experiencing this feeling?

Choosing the Right Law School / How does Iowa play in the market?
« on: January 19, 2007, 09:52:51 AM »
I am just curious as to how University of Iowa is perceived in the overall job market. I know they are ranked 22 or so by USNEWS, but I suspect grads are limited to the midwest for the most part. I, being a Cyclone, would rather cut off my own arm than go there, but I am interested as to what anyone as heard.

Last night as I was working out (i.e. saw picture but no sound) I got the idea that some senator/congressman had said blacks should just "get over slavery". I am not one hundred percent sure whether this was in response to or the cause of a new round of speculation regarding a national apology/reparations. What are your thoughts on this subject?

I personally like "fascist" or "feminine hygiene product" and all variations thereof...

General Off-Topic Board / Women: Are you a height bigot?
« on: January 17, 2007, 08:06:34 AM »
How much does a man's height matter to you womenfolk? I am 5'7" or 5'8" and I have been running into the tall girl brick wall a lot lately. I even had one girl directly tell me "I like you but you are too short." She was probably 5'10" or so. So women, are you discriminatory?

So I am posting this crap from work because I am bored as hell... Yeah there is some stuff I could do, but I don't wanna. It seems that my journey through high-pressure consulting (I had a ridiculously high work ethic then) unemployment (I quit because I decided to pursue law) and now into a new job which is less challenging, has shot my sense of urgency right in the foot. So who's with me?

Law School Admissions / How disasterous is this?
« on: January 16, 2007, 09:22:58 AM »
Well I took the September LSAT and got a 167, my ugrad GPA was 3.51 (LSAC) in computer engineering and I will have 2 years work experience by the time I enter law school.

Here's where the proverbial *&^% hits the fan...

Somehow, following the score reporting, I lapsed in to the most gigantic case of writers block/procrastination ever recorded and didn't get any apps out until the end of December. I am applying to the schools that my scores would suggest, t14 plus additional above 30. I threw a couple out to schools in the 80's as geographic safeties. I have 15 apps out now and am trying to get 8 more.

How screwed am I?

Well I am going through the Duke app, and there is an optional essay(either an academic statement or a diversity statement) Since my academics were pretty good, especially for a computer engineer, I figure I should write the diversity statement, but I am having a lot of trouble getting started. If anybody has a DS they want read I would be happy to do so with the benefit of getting an idea of what some look like.

I am thinking about doing it over all the seemingly contradictory things I like to do. For instance, I am a rugby player, but I also designed lighting for a dance recital two years in a row... Any thoughts?
