Cali -

I attended SW as a PT student throughout my time there (Dec '06 grad). Because I always maxed out my units (11-12 per semester; 5-6 every summer), I was able to graduate after only 3.5 years, even though I was working full-time and commuting all the way from Ventura.  So even if you stay PT, if you take enough units, you can graduate in about the same amount of time as the FT folks.  Further, I had plenty of friends who started as PT, and were able to switch to FT after the first year.

I enjoyed my time at SW, and had no trouble passing the CA bar on the first attempt.  So I think it's a great school.  Enjoy it.

With respect to living arrangements, if you visit the school, they always have roomate ads up on the boards.  I would try not to lock in long-term with someone you don't know very well.  You may eventually meet people in class who would make a better roomates than your original cloice, and you want to maintain the option of exploring those opportunities within the first year.

Best regards.

So I've decided that I will be attending Southwestern Part-Time this fall.  I really wanted full-time but after talking to admissions today they informed me that no decisions will me made until the very end of July/beginning of August and I just can't wait that long to find housing and move.  Also there was no guarantee that I would be able to still have a part time spot if not offered a full time one.  So I figured, why jeopordize an opportunity when I can just go part time and then transfer to full time next year.  So now I have to find an apartment in LA!  Anyone have any suggestions?

To all the SW folks -- congrats.  I'm in my last semester at SW, and I've had a lot of fun along the way. If there's anything you want to ask about, I'm usually up in the Tea Room by about 5pm on my class nights (T, W, Th this semester).  I can also introduce you to some of the other 2L and 3L types I hang out with.  You're sure to pick up some good outlines and info along the way.

Best of luck!

Speaking of women who should have two vaginas, Shakira is on SNL right I must bid you all adieu for the evening.

With my luck, I'd cut one off, and the next day I'd meet the only hot chick in the world with two vaginas.

I found this one a few weeks ago when I was searching for a Japanese video game commercial I was in in 1988 (They actually came out to film it in sunny CA).  I was amazed I found it.  And no...I'm not the fat guy at the end.

This time around, Wonder Woman needs to be a bit more exotic.  I'd go with Catherine Bell or Lexa Doig (from Andromeda). 

I thought I heard awhile ago that there is a Wonder Woman script floating around Hollywood & Sandra Bullock is the front-runner.

WTF? Of all people. They would be better off with Demi Moore

hey fuckwad, there were long range missles being launched into Israel from right around that building.  Israel unfortunately missed and hit a building.  But the rockets are being fired from a civilian area.  Israel's job is to take them out, accidents happen.  In Tyre they managed a direct score on the rocket launchers, here they didn't.  Too f-ing bad.

This is dead on.  As a former (and well-educated) Marine, it disappoints me that such a high percentage of fellow-Americans delude themselves into believing that, with enough peaceful diplomacy, all cultures can eventually co-exist with all other cultures.  This is a fallacy which ignores the nature of our enemies, and, in a broader sense, our nature as human beings.  The enemy and its allies have committed to their position, which is NOT one of peaceful diplomacy.  It would be advisable for us to do the same while our strategic military capability can still overwhelm theirs.  This enemy is to be admired in one sense:  In life, they fear nothing but the hand of God.   To protect the future of our nation and our way of life, we must be prepared to deliver the hand of God to the enemy once diplomacy proves futile.  Perhaps that time draws near.  Welcome to the human race folks.

Are you really sure you want to do this law school thing bro?  Sounds like the first time the prof uses the Socratic method on you, you might go all UFC on his *ss.  Actually, come to think of it, you and I might get along.  I say go for it.  Take whatever school you can get into, and check to make sure the bar in your state would admit you at the end of it all.  Then kick serious *ss....academically and professionally speaking that is.  If you're good at what you do in practice, your professional reputation will eventually overcome everything in your past.
