General Board / Re: Anybody Know Anything About U. Dayton Law School?
« on: April 20, 2008, 10:25:01 AM »
I have not heard great things about UD- from what i hear, if you are going in ohio, steer clear of Dayton, capital and now toledo (they dropped from T-2 to TTT).  ohio state, Case western, cincinatti, akron and even onu are solid respectable law schools in ohio, in that order.  i might be missing a few but those are my recommendations.

Law School Applications / Re: Charleston school of Law
« on: April 20, 2008, 10:22:13 AM »
yea- im from charleston and they tried to lure me into the law school- 42K a year base tuition for a NON ranked school with no reputation?  No thanks- i didn't go to USC because I missed the application deadline (not to say i would get in, but i didn't even apply).  However, USC is 95th and while its great for SC, it doesn't travel well.  I might try to transfer to USC because its cheap 15K in state tuition.  I am currently at a 3rd tier school, so going to #95 won't make a huge difference but at least it will be in SC. 

I have a lot of friends who went- they seemed to enjoy it and the weather is oh so nice.  Other than that, theres not much i can say, but thats my .02.  Keep the change.

Funny how you question how I got into law school based on my calling you out.  Meanwhile my "logic" performance on the LSAT probably blew yours away jerk off.


People like this make law school bearable!  Seriously dude, you may have a big law gig lined up, and "blew" the LSAT away- however, i doubt you will have a single date lined up for this summer or any summer after that.(unless you are gay, and that explains a LOT).  My guess is that you are an overweight, under sized a-hole that nobody likes.  And likeability is the key to success.  Just ask Dane Cook.  You aren't likeable.  You will not succeed. 

feminine hygiene product.  Bag.

General Board / Re: What do you feel you learned this year?

The hardest part for me was not "getting" the material- i think that just comes down to persistent study- but the style of writing that is needed is the tricky part- the law favors brevity and my entire life in school i was forced to fill up pages of papers with asinine page requirements simply for the sake of filling up pages, i accomplished editorial wizardry, the ability to bull through 20 pages when everything that needed to be said was in the first 5- I always thought "man, i could say this in half the space" but for some stupid reason the non-legal writing world encourages us to beat around the bush, etc.  now in law school, im finding it hard and almost unnatural to "tell you what im going to say, say it, and then tell you what i told you" 

damn public education! Damn legal writing- my worst class by far...

I learned that im not even a fraction of smart as i thought i was.  also, creativity counts for nothing in law school, but according to the case books, it counts for everything. 

Also, most law students are feminine hygiene product bags big time. 

everything i need to know i learned in law school is how i feel.

I received a letter-sized envelope with approximately 10 pages of paper inside from the jag office- im weary to open it right now.  Anyone who has been accepted- what kind of package/envelope did they send? I know this is stupid and i should just open it, but as long as its closed, i still have a chance hah!

MEESTA- i think you hit tool right on the nail- no pun intended- but seriously, its people who walk around and with their master's male private part in their mouth, try to tell everyone else what to do, how to do it, etc.  An instrument in the face of feminine hygiene product-baggery.  But i will also agree that most people in general are D-bags.

2L job search / Re: Advice...2L no job.
« on: April 13, 2008, 08:19:16 PM »
I am a 1L, however, I am waiting to hear back and so far it looks like nothing- but my plan is to volunteer ANYTHINg just to get some legal experience on the resume and im going back to bartending at night- it will pay the bills and keep me afloat this summer while it gives me a better chance at a better job next summer- i would take that advice, volunteer if u have to, get a night job (don't those pay the most anyways) and pray pray pray.  good luck.

Why are there so many feminine hygiene product bags in law school?  Is it just mine?  I go to a TTT (Third Tier Toilet) and half the time I think I am at Harvard by the way some of these elitists act.  Seriously, what gives?
