Good article, I agree but really doesn't tell us much we didn't know already. I'm not trying to be a jerk but of course its going to be difficult for someone who went to the University of Oklahoma and got a B- average to find a job.

Nancy Grace is an embarrassment, definitely one of the worst television personalities ever. god, I hope law school women are not like her.

She really gives a bad name to us female lawyers...Isn't funny how a lot of those "big name" attorneys didn't go to top notch schools. I looked up Debra Opri (the one from the Anna Nicole Smith saga) went to Whittier

I love these antagonistic threads, they are a great way to pass the time at work.

I'll admit it - I'm partially in it for the money. But only for the fact that I will definitely make more than I do now with my lowly UG degree. But its more than that, I want a challenging job!

I have about 4 years professional experience working in business (marketing, accounting/finance, office management stuff). There was/is always a legal facet to the jobs but I've never worked at a law firm (I tried but to no avail)

Am I at a disadvantage over someone whose been a paralegal or something like that? I would really be interested in hearing from some of the people who are already in Law School who come on these boards. Thanks!

First one is a lawyer now, although I don't know what he does exactly, just had a shotgum wedding and possibly a baby on the way... He partially inspired me to go to law school...We met in Chicago for drinks a few years ago while he was in LS and he told me I would make a good lawyer. He was a really smart guy so this was a really nice compliment and he truly planted the seed in my head.

The second and more serious is a bartender. Anytime I need a good laugh I go to his MySpace page.

When I saw the title of the thread I originally thought it was a really bad flame about someone deciding btw a provisionally accredited school and a T14. I lol'd

You're 'tar is cute!

I would not go to a provisionally accredited school, seems really risky....

Its never too late. Good for you!

you're probably right. I'm not really that familiar with the T1/T2 border and number differences.

I guess I was giving credence to his soft factors or the "having a child." Supporting a child throughout one's college career, I am sure would be looked upon rather favorably by an adcom.

ehhh...I have a 3 year old son who I had while still in college (whose birthday is today!) and I don't really think it helped much in terms of admissions...I got into schools that were within my reach for numbers...

I agree--it's just hard though because of time/money limitations.  I run maybe 5 times per week for around 3 or 4 miles each time.  In order to lose fat, I'll either have to start running more or eating less.  Harder than it sounds though...

Have you ever heard of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)? Basically, you walk/jog slowly for 60 seconds, then all out sprint for 20-30 seconds. You repeat these for 15 minutes and it burns an insane amount of fat, and you only have to do it for 10-15 minutes. I try to do this 1-2x per week, but it is incredibly hard.  It is the absolute best form of cardio to do by far for fat loss, and it takes like no time.

Why does it burn more fat than just running for the same amount of time?

im not sure the scientific reason, but it has something to do with the increased heart rate you get from doing the sprinting. High intensity cardio burns a TON of calories, but if you do it for too long it becomes catabolic and starts burning up muscle. that is why marathon runners you may see are very cut looking, but have almost no muscle. If you do HIIT, you get the benefits of an increased heartrate from high intensity cardio, but by doing it in spurts of 30 seconds and then letting your heart rate go back down, it isn't catabolic. It's supposed to be really good if you are trying to keep muscle but just lose fat. Doing high intenstity normally isn't good for fat loss, just cardiovascular reasons. So if you are running like 7 minute miles for your cardio, it's not burning up as much fat as you think. The best thing to do for fat loss is a long amount of low intensity cardio, like 45 minutes of it, or doing HIIT or sprints.  So basically you are gonna want to try to work up a big sweat, but not get too out of breath.  Most people don't know that back breaking cardio is not the way to lose fat, and the best way is either HIIT or long amounts of low intensity cardio

I am so trying this!
