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....

Law School Applications / Re: Admissions Counseling
« on: June 21, 2007, 12:03:06 AM »
I'm getting ready to apply to law schools and I have been looking into admission counseling. Kaplan and Powerscore both offer this service. Anna Ivey does as well, author of The Ivey Guide to Law School Admission and former Dean of Admissions at Chicago Law. I also stumbled upon Ann Levine's site, who was supposely the former Director of Admissions at 2 different law schools.

Does anyone have any advice they could give me on choosing an admission counselor? I would really appreciate any thoughts anyone might have.

I do not recommend and I have personal experience with one of the aforementioned. PM for details and an honest opinion.

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...
