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:
"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.
1991 Camry -- my second. I love the car.
well I'll see you in ATL... hopefully
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 later...trust me it may work. If not, hey least you really tried right? Thats what I would do if I really wanted to go and I knew one person was in the process of getting a refund.
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...
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.
