« on: March 12, 2006, 04:31:00 PM »
hi.  it looks like i should be joining you in the fall.  just wanted to introduce myself and ask if any of you would be so kind as to fill me in on toledo.  how are you enjoying law school so far?  have classes been difficult?  can you tell me about the campus?  law school?  library?  summer job searches?  do you need a car, living in toledo?  how far is too far to live from campus.  is it better to rent a house over an apt?  thanx.

also i have seen on irlg's site that toledo boasts one of the higher employment at graduation.  has this translated into 1l and 2L summer opps?  can you get a midlevel firm job from toledo?  can you realistically make 60k+ as a starting salary?

Incoming 1Ls / porn + masturbation + drunk driving = ?!?

Suit: NBA Player Watching Porn, Drunk Before Crash
Claim Targets Minnesota Timberwolves' Eddie Griffin

(CBS) MINNEAPOLIS On March 30, Minnesota Timberwolves center Eddie Griffin was drunk and masturbating when he crashed his luxury SUV into a parked Suburban outside a store in Minneapolis, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by the man whose Suburban was hit in the crash.

WCCO-TV obtained copies of 911 calls and store surveillance video of the incident, along with an accident report the police submitted to the state, reports WCCO-TV's Caroline Lowe.

Several of the 911 callers that night said Griffin was drunk. One witness said Griffin told him he was watching pornography in a DVD player mounted on the dashboard of his Cadillac Escalade SUV when he struck a Chevy Suburban parked on University Avenue Southeast.

The location where Griffin crashed is located a couple miles from the Target Center where Griffin had played with his team several hours earlier.

Abed Hassuneh, who is the brother of the victim, said Griffin told him, "That he was masturbating himself going down that street. That's how the accident happened because he was not paying attention. He's paying attention to that video and all of a sudden he's shoveled somebody's car on the top of the sidewalk."

Interim Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan ordered an internal affairs investigation of the conduct of the two officers who responded to the scene, after WCCO-TV made Dolan aware of allegations about the incident.

Key questions are why Griffin wasn't tested for alcohol and why the officers drove him out of the city to his home in St. Paul. Griffin also received tickets for not having a license and inattentive driving.

Griffin's damaged SUV was towed to the Minneapolis impound lot.

Dolan told WCCO-TV he expects impartial policing. Dolan also said officers must get permission to leave the city.

"Obviously, if somebody is drunk and they are driving we want that dealt with by the police officers of Minneapolis," Dolan said.

In the video, Griffin can be heard pleading with witnesses to not call police saying, "I can't go to jail."

The video also shows Griffin admitting he is drunk and doesn't have a driver's license.

The video shows him struggling for minutes to put on his sweatshirt and offering to buy a car for the man who's SUV he crashed into in front of Santana Foods.

Griffin was not available for comment. When he was interviewed by reporters after the crash happened, he said he had dropped his cell phone as he drove.

The two officers involved in the incident, Daniel Anderson and Matthew Lindquist, have been with the Minneapolis Police Department since October 2001. The officers remain on duty pending the outcome of the internal investigation.

i just saw the barbaro break.  i almost cried.  he was just kicking that hind leg as if...  oh man.   :'( 

send some well wishes his way, thanx.

i can't get this thing to work for anything.  it really sucks!  am i doing something wrong?  how come there are no boxes for you to just put in your gpa and lsat like the old one?  how do you use this thing?   :-\

this thing needs a manual. 

maybe i'm at the wrong site?  i went to the old one and there is nothing there but a link to supposedly new data.  i go there, create an account, and....nothing works!

i click on schools, use the filter, nothing!  this blows monkey d....! 

Choosing the Right Law School / where should i go?

i have been accepted at toledo and hamline.

toledo gave me full tuition for one year, non-renewable.  hamline gave me 6k per.  i would like to transfer after 1L if possible.  although toledo would seem to be a no-brainer, they put me in some transition program where i would have to make-up two classes in the summer.  would this prevent me from transferring out if i do well?  if you were in my position, what would you do?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / which schools have status checkers?

Law School Admissions / What does this mean?
« on: January 26, 2006, 01:40:24 PM »
I just received an email from a school.

"While we get to know you on paper, we are also interested in meeting you in person and invite you to visit campus if you haven't already done so."

Is this a form letter or do they really want to meet me?  Would it look bad if I don't go?  is this a subtle way of saying they want to interview me?

I work full time in another state. i can't just up and leave. Help!  :-\

i would love to attend depaul or even john marshall-chicago with a free-ride. it would be hard to turn them down, even for many tier2 and lower tier1s with no $$$. 

Should you apply to lower ranked schools in the hopes of getting scholarship money? The thing is I don't really know if I want to work for someone else for the rest of my life. The chance to work for myself is kind of attractive. I do not have the numbers to get into a tier 1 so why not go tier 3/4 with money?

Law School Admissions / help...resume + work history section?

if you are including a resume, do you still have to fill out the employment history section on the application?
