Incoming 1Ls / Re: Drinking culture in LS

I was talking to a woman once, and she told me that she could "see it" in Bush's eyes that he was a former alcoholic and that he had never gotten the proper treatment (in her mind, AA).  She couldn't believe that someone could just get up one morning and decide to never drink again.  I didn't know what to tell her. 
Alot of people are like that.  That's why that program seems cultish.  Everyone needs to do what works for them. Some people really need and alternative outlet to place thier dependency.  Alcoholism isn't always about dependency.  Often alcoholism is the symptom not the problem.  She needs to understand that people like Bush have either solved thier problems, or learned to deal with them better.

I don't see any problem with going to law school and not wanting to be an attorney.  A law degree (from my understanding) is a great education.  And, some people like to learn simply for learning's sake. 

I also think that it can be benefical to have a J.D. in a lot of other fields.  For example, if you want to be an artist, it could give credibility to your work if you have a certain degree.  Or a writer; you might be able to write more specifics (maybe even a book about law school), that would benefit from a J.D. 

Either way, if you have the time and resources, why not?
My point.  Must have money. Scholarship is a very good reason if you have the money to burn.

-If you go to L.S. to be more credible as an artist... ??? I don't even have an answer for that.  I think an MFA in Music Theory would be better.  It's probably just as difficult and intellectually stimulating.

None of this makes sense. It's irrational. The OP is irrational.  Or extremely rich. Paris Hilton irrational and Paris Hilton rich.

I got snubbed by Bill Cosby once.  It was in the middle of the field at the Penn Relays (Track Event) in Philadelphia.  I went up to get his autgraph.  He immediately shooed me with his hands and quickly walked away.  I suspect there were abou 20,000 people watching that day.  I was only 16. 

He lost a fan.  The SOB (no he's the B) had the nerve to speak at my UG graduation from Temple in '98.  I know he doesn't remember me.  Doen't change the fact he's a B.

Anyone else personally hate a celeb?

Damn! >:( This doesn't have booze in it! :P

I've been having lawyer dreams lately.  Not L.S. dreams, which is good.  I'm seing myself beyond that obstacle ;).  Strange thing last night I had a dream I was and ER Doctor pining to become a MRI specialist or something.  I even knew what the MRI machine was called ???... Really odd :-\ what does that have to do with anything?
