Flame.

Or patently arrogant and stupid.

Why are you attacking me?

Well, I don't know what I'd consider a good law school. But I have a pretty good school pedigree so far so I'd want to keep that up. I went to an all girls private high school in CT, now I'm at one of the Seven Sisters. So I'm thinking I need to be selective about where I apply. I wouldn't want to end up anywhere disreputable like Fordham or something.

Right now I'm in my Junior year again because of some issues that I have successfully had expunged from my criminal and school records. I'm hoping to apply next fall but have already started lining up LORs.

Ok, so I have this problem with one of my LORs. I asked this professor who I was really really close with for an LOR last semester. Well, he dragged his feet a little and now I'm afraid I'm never going to get it because we aren't as close as we once were.

If I CAN convince him to send one should I snail mail him the materials, since I'm supposed to stay 250 feet away from him and his family at all times? If no one is home can I drop off the envelope and form at his house? You guys are going to be lawyers right, so you should know this?

you should probably just do it late at night to make sure nobody sees you.
peek in the windows to make sure nobody is awake.

/jiggle the back door to see if you can get in and raid the fridge

Well, unfortunately entering the house is out of the question. They bought this German Shepherd and then scent trained him to attack me.

That has to be illegal, right?

Gretchen,

Someone told me once: LSAT = (SAT)/20.7 + 100.7, so ... you can definitely expect a 175 on the LSAT.

Wow, thanks that is actually really great advice. Are there any other helpful statistics about law school admissions or anything?

I'm at an East coast all girls college...

all "girls"?   

::flames emanating from nostrils::

You must be one of those feminazis I go to school with. I really like being around girls most of the time because a lot of my friends are lesbians so there's less competition for the fellas.

Clearly you need to get a grip on reality and get past your childishness. If you get bent out of shape about semantics you will never survive this world.

Wow, I didn't read this thread but I could tell how helpful it would be from the title. Here's the first paragraph of my ps:

I was born in a rundown shack in a bad part of town. My mom was a poor single woman who ended up abandoning me at the nearest fire station. It tore me up for a long time deep down inside to think of the squalid and difficult life I would have had if my birth mother hadn't given me up. Yet, I know the decision was probably difficult for her as she would likely have been eligible for additional federal programs had she kept me. My goal in becoming a lawyer is to change the way our federal aid is dispursed, so that no young mother should ever have difficulty making a choice to give her baby up to better, richer parents. In my federal aid program young mothers will be given 10k for doing the right thing and sending their beautiful but poor babies on to better, happier and more prestigious lives.

I don't know who this Zamora chick is, but I don't think she'd like you talking about her undies on a public forum.

You clearly don't know Zamora :)

No? Fill me in.
