Law School Admissions / Re: most accurate GPA estimate
« on: July 20, 2004, 11:39:17 PM »

Most schools will process the first 2 transcript requests for free.  After that it ranges anywhere from $2-$7 each.  Your best bet is to look it up on your colleges' websites.  If you don't provide payment, your request won't be processed.

I think you should answer the question - one paragraph ought to do the trick. According to the question it doesn't matter what race/nationality you are, but what the make-up of the school was.  It will provide info on the type of environment in which you grew up.

wannabe, you beat me to it.

I would say the answer is C.  You need to find another reason for the reduction in cheating besides the increase of religious exposure, because you are trying to weaken the argument.  The only option is the change from proctored exams to an honor system.  Let me know if I'm wrong so I can go back and hit the books some more.

No, that would make it approximately 21.5% of all men and women, but a bit more skewed towards the 22% cuz there are more women than men in the US population.

What do y'all think about Whittier Law School?

A recent survey showed that 50 percent of people polled believe that elected officials should resign if indicted for a crime, whereas 35 percent believe that elected officials should resign only if they are convicted of a crime. Therefore, more people believe that elected officials should resign if indicted than believe that they should resign if convicted.

For 35%: resigning is sufficient ; convicted of a crime is necessary

The conclusion reverses the necessary and sufficient:
         convicted of a crime is sufficient ; resigning is necessary

Therefore B is correct. (confuses a sufficient condition with a required condition)

Law School Admissions / Re: Application Question

I may be wrong, but I think listing the other schools you are applying to is optional - just as stating your ethnicity is optional, also.

If you want to apply to law school, you will have to pay the $400. It doesn't matter that you took it for personal interests - you're still obligated to submit the transcript. You don't want to spend 3 yrs in law school, sit for the bar, and have this bite you in the butt. What's $400 compared to $120,000?

Have you tried contacting the cc to negotiate another settlement?  It doesn't hurt to try, although they probably won't budge an inch. Just pay them and be happy the grade was an A and not an F. Of course if you're not going to law school and never plan on getting a job where they require a thorough background check, you can blow them off.  Good luck.

If your goal is to get a job at a top law firm then by all means go to Harvard, but if you find that a couple years out you're not happy being a servant, you won't have many other choices cuz you must make the dough to pay off your educational mortgage. If I were in your shoes I would take the full ride to Duke, but many on this board will tell you tell you otherwise.  You're a lucky bastard.  Good luck to you.
