What is your problem with her then?  You've never made it clear.  You just take pot shots whenever you get a chance. 

Assuming a zero sum game, for starters.

explain. using cool economic terms doesn't mean *&^% unless you can explain why you believe as you do.

I'm interested in Civil Liberties and Constitutional Law (so basically I'm in love with the Bill of Rights).  Does anyone know of any schools that have a special focus in this area?  And does it really matter which school you go to if you have a particular style of law in mind? 

hippy bleeding heart liberal. the bill of rights was designed by the mob of lesser humans in order to keep the strong and powerful aristocratic few from enjoying their manifest destiny, and will one day be destroyed through the actions of heroes.


You're confused.

The BOR was designed as a check on the tyranny of the majority, and implicitly protects the superior individual from the masses.

You may, however, have a beef with the equal protection clause, or the Civil Rights Act.

Why would a superior individual need rights? A superior individual does what he wants, when he wants, and doesn't need some piece of paper telling him what he's entitled to. Only when the weak bind together do they establish rights for themselves, so that those greater than they cannot destroy them.

^Thank god. Rand blows.

True.

Commie bastards. Why don't you two move to Israel and join a kibbutz? Even better, go out in the woods, meditate naked, and become "one" with the universe.

My current situation is much like a few that Ive seen on the message board.  I will post it in hopes that I get some good advise.  Firstly, I am a Physical Therapist and a Director at a large clinic.  I get payed fairly well for a 26 year old guy.  With bonuses, I make in the 6-figure range.  My wife, who is in the Army, will be getting out and is a fairly sure lock to be hooked into a nice corporate job (a whole different story).  In doing this she could help to send me to law school.  Now, I dont know a lot of lawyers to personally advise me, but the ones that have told me that my upside potential would likely be higher in law than P.T. and more likely to be eventually realized.  You see, my career prospects dont go much higher than where Im at in P.T. 

I have thought that it would only be worth going back to law school if I could get into a top school (please advise if anyone thinks otherwise).  I have a masters degree, 6 years of Army reserves, a 3.92 GPA from a decent private school, and a good resume.  My negatives are in my LSATs.  My work schedule is erratic and allows for 6-7 hours weekly of quality studying.  My LSAT practice tests are 152, 157, 158.  Im improving, no doubt.   I guess what Im asking is three-fold: 
 
          1.  If I score a 155 (essentially not improving on my scores), what do my admissions chances look like.  What schools does my profile open me up to? Ive used some admissions calculators but I find those hard to believe.
          2.  If I continue to progress and hit a 165, how am I looking considering my soft factors?
          3.  If I only qualify for ranked schools 80 and below (random number of course), is it worth it for me to go to law school in the long-run of my career?

I'd appreciate any replies.

what is it to be objective? aren't all human decisions made with incomplete information shaped by the subjective experience of the person?
