Quick question to pose on the participants of this discussion and past argument? Was it really so easy, even a caveman could do it?

Ok, I'm sorry....carry on......

the real question is, is it worthwhile to contribute to this discussion?

You're right, it's not worthwhile. This "debate" is an even lower form of discourse than the O'rly Factor. No substance, lots of screaming.

Here's basically how the alleged debate is going down:
"I'm right!"
"No way!"
"Uh huh!"
"Nope, you're not ethical enough to be a lawyer. Look at these quotations from the Wyo bar oath that have absolutely no relation to the discussion at hand."
"Wow, those are pretty quotes. You must have spend hours scouring Google to find them. You get a star for your effort."
"I know. I'm a mediocre fraud. My mediocre LSAT and mediocre law school will allow me to be a mediocre lawyer who presents mediocre evidence like this. At least I can use my law degree to impress all of the people that didn't go to college who come into my office for DUI's, bankruptcies and divorces."
"Yeah, out of pity, I'll allow you to keep pretending that arguing on the internet is a worthwhile pursuit. Who am I to take away your only source of self esteem?"

'04 Acura RL. My second. I'm addicted to 'em.

I was about to get one of these a few years ago, but I couldnt find one I liked in the year I wanted. I really like the previous body style, but the new body style is sexy too!!

1991 Camry -- my second. I love the car.

I used to have an '89 Camry in high school in 2000 and then the transmission fell out of it, but I put it through H3[[ boy!! I am love with the '92 - '96 model Camry. I am thinking that when I graduate from law school I will just get one for myself as a graduating present. Those things last forever...

All in all I am happy and content driving my self crazy...

well I'll see you in ATL... hopefully

Thanks Jilli

Yea all 80 seats are filled and paid, but 1 is trying to get a refund and they are so hard to get in contact with! They been giving me the run around forreal and I'm not having it. Man! I think you should call them back and say "I was just wondering if someone decides not to go, would I be able to take their place. I'm more than willing to take someone's place if any last minute openings come up. I'll even be willing to provide you with an extra statement on why I think I would be a perfect candidate." You never know it may work! You want to be a lawyer what better way than now to start being proactive and start using your persuasive skills? If they say no, try again two days me it may work. If not, hey least you really tried right? That’s what I would do if I really wanted to go and I knew one person was in the process of getting a refund.

That sounds like a marvelous ideaand they know who I am because I have bothered them so much. When I called I just said my name and she already knew the bad news she needed to give me although it did not seem as if she was too distraught. But yea I will call them today and see what that process is like. I have already written that letter you speak of, so it would just be whatever happens after I speak with Ms. Gale this afternoon. Thanks Sophi, I hope you are able to get your refund. Who have you been calling to try to get your money back and you and Jilli are definitely about to be classmates? Thats wassup!

I am sure you are aware of this, but just in case - It is more difficult to move from SMU PT to FT than most schools...

Yea I found that real disturbing. You cannot PETITION to change switch to FT until AFTER your first two years in the program and even after that it is not a guarantee. This, my mom and costs are the main reasons I am trying to go to UHLC. You still get access to great professors and are surrounded by wonderful peers. In fact, some FT students take the night classes because that is the only time they are offered.

i don't know that much about the law school except this: it has a very good reputation in Dallas. Some people might think that's insignificant, but consider this:

Dallas is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country. It's legal market is huge, and SMU is typically the second strongest school to feed it. Compare this to other places that your LSAT and GPA would gain you access to. Say, New York. Cardozo in New York is WAY down the food chain in schools that send a large number of students to NYC. Admittedly, NYC's market is quite a bit bigger, but I think overall you come out way on the top in this comparison.

So I don't know your other options, but i'd say SMU is a very strong choice where your career is concerned.

Mild correction, Houston is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the nation. Dallas is the 4th largest when the Fort Worth area is included.Good advice otherwise.

Well I havent decided on SMU yet, but I am ready to go there if I have to. I loved SMU on my visit. Thecampus is beautiful. It is in a nice part of Dallas and the law school is set up really nicely. My whole thing is the PT status as well and the costs other than that I wouldnt mind it. That is where I will be this fall unless I get in off the UHLC waitlist.
