i was old enough to be the parent of 90% of the other admitted students there.  i was tempted to pretend to be the parent of some of the ones who wouldnt stop asking ridiculous questions and shame them out of actually attending by saying things like "my son has a bed-wetting problem, and is addicted to nilla wafers.  do you sell depends and wafers at the bookstore?"

i brought my wife, and she got so bored about halfway through she went back to the hotel.

This is hilarious, Rev!  Don't give me ideas like this...I might try it, too.

Went to an open house at U of Akron last summer--about 2/3 of the prospective applicants brought their parents.  I almost got blown out of the building from all of the prop wash coming from the helicopter parents.   :D

There were no parents at Mich---but a sh*tload of parents at the first ASw.  So much so that it really became annoying.  They were basically intruding on the panels, asking ridiculous questions (my son doens't cook, so how would he eat?).  There were a couple of parents at CLS but there were very *hidden*.

Sound like "helicopter parents" to me. 

Embrace the hatred

Thank you, I think I will.   ;)

I believe my loathing of children comes from my father--he didn't seem very fond of me or my sister.  He even told me (many times) that children weren't worth a damn until they could get a job and move out of the house.   :-\

As a rookie firefighter, the worst part of my job was giving fire station tours to the kids.  Gawd, I HATED it.  Today I just hide in my office when the brats come through the place during October.  At least as a battalion chief I can order others to give the kiddie tours.   :D  

At least I had enough sense not to have any and poison them with my hatred.  Unfortunately, there are breeders out there who have children they don't really want and treat them like crap.

i got my first letter of law school acceptance today!!!  i took the LSAT 5 times.  my scores were 150, 151, 152, 154, and one cancellation.  i have a 3.23 gpa from Penn State University.  my numbers are low, but i wrote a killer personal statement.  i got into University of Wisconsin - Madison. 

Congrats, lather!   ;D

No little ones for me.  Still have all the parts for reproducing, but never even remotely considered having children.  Dirty little secret...I hate kids.  >:(

I saved my Yale / Harvard dings and framed them, they are right abouve my study deak, and when I get tired of working so hard in law school I look at them, they piss me off, and I get back to work. :)

But do they make you work harder in Admin Law?   :D

Sorry, that was mean of me...

I'm looking to add a few more quotes to the mix, so I was wondering if any of you well-read, well-versed legal eagles had any wisdom to share.  If so, post it here so that your fellow LSDers can bask in the warmth of your sunshine!

"I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman.  The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which a fireman has to do believe his is a noble calling.  Our proudest moment is to save lives.  Under the impulse of such thoughts the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice."

I want to be a tax attorney.

Got accepted to Cleveland State-Marshall, $4000/yr.   :)

Congrats! So are you going to attend any of these schools, you say on your LSN you want to go FT?

Cleveland-Marshall is my first choice (well, Case really is, but I don't think my numbers are strong enough), and I will be attending FT.  I had PT listed on LSN because that was my original plan.  But now it looks like I'll be quitting my job and going to LS FT.  The money from C-M is contingent upon FT attendance.

Waiting on Case and Akron now (U of M and Yale were silly pipe dreams--I should've just  flushed my app fees down the toilet)--if Akron coughs up some $$$ then I can use that to negotiate for more from C-M.

Got accepted to Cleveland State-Marshall, $4000/yr.   :)
