General Board / Who Can Relate?
« on: November 19, 2008, 09:11:08 PM »
Just read this article.  Poor 1L had his apartment robbed.  The robber ended up getting beat up after he demanded the laptop.

General Board / Re: Which City is Best for a Grad Student?

Oh, well, the good news for you is that there is no age of consent in the U.S.  Feel free to fornicate with anyone you choose.  If anyone asks, tell them someone who is almost a lawyer told you it was OK.  That should cover you.

Wow, all that to say, Yes, he/she will probably get accepted.  Who says legal writing teaches you to be concise and to the point?!  Well done.

First, OldCraig, OP asked for our opinion on his chances of admission to SLU, not for your opinion on the pitfalls of a T-2 education.  Learn to read the call of the question you dumb poo.  He didn't ask for your opinion on SLU. 

Second, let's take a look at what your first response, OldCraig. 

I would say that your odds are poor.

The biggest soft factor you should be concerned about is if you are a member of a suspect class of persons (i.e. - racial minority, female, handicapped, or homosexual)- This gets you the most diversity points -

Also, a 155 LSAT will probably not get you in anywhere you'd want to go.

You are very misinformed.  A 155 LSAT and 3.45-3.5 GPA will certainly make the OP a very competitive candidate for admission. Saywhatagain07, take note of douchebags like OldCraig - law schools are awash with them.  Learn to deconstruct their illogical arguments, and have fun with them.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: 3.3/170

The bottom line is a 170 will get you into almost any of the top 15 schools regardless of your GPA

This is pure comedy gold.

No problem.  I know someone who got in to SLU last cycle with your numbers.  Your score is a great start.  If you can get it up to 159-162, you'll probably get some $ from a few schools.  Put together a nice application package, it's worth the time. 

My only word of advice/caution - look at the curve of any school, that offers you a scholarship.  Scholarships are contingent on you maintaining a certain GPA.  If you fall below that line, they usually take the scholarship away. 

Best of luck.

Yeah, but it's entertainment, and beats studying.

TITCR

Especially since I dont have a TV to distract me 

Oh and Tim... come to Penn!  That is all. 

No TV?!  How?

You live in Philly and you don't watch It's Always Sunny?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: for all that bomb on RC
« on: November 01, 2008, 06:19:47 PM »
Anyone that has the capacity to actually be a good lawyer should be able to be good at RC right off the bat  ::)

No. Reading comp can definitely be improved through practice.  Besides, you're a flame, why are you posting in legitimate threads?
