General Off-Topic Board / LSD D-Dubbers Unite!
« on: February 22, 2008, 04:15:40 PM »
Regardless of what anyone says, I'm proud to be a d-dubber, just like troublemaker and possibly Stotan.  You were either here or you weren't, and post counts are precious.

<-- Wishes he could delete threads as well.   :o

General Off-Topic Board / Bored Wally Taking Questions

I'll sleep on the bus. 

Thanks to a FB poster for the thread's idea:

What do you think your "rep" will be? Will you shoot for cool kid status, or possibly "player" or "man-whore?"  "Guy who studies all the time?"  "Girl who failed contracts because she dropped Jay-Z tracks the night before the exam?"

I think I'll be "easygoing dude who knows how to have a good time."

General Off-Topic Board / I'm Flying Alaska Airlines. Any Experiences?
« on: January 25, 2008, 11:26:15 AM »
Apprently, my tickets to visit a certain school were booked through Alaska Airlines.  I've really never heard of this company, and all I can imagine when someone says Alaska is a polar bear mauling a trash can.

Any thoughts? 

You may have come to expect these type of threads from me, but here's the "dilemma" I've thought about.  Should I think about it now?  Probably not.  Have I?  I have, and I would like to ask a few pre-law and law students.  Could you interpret my question in a pejorative way?  Yeah.  Should you?  Perhaps.

After reading too many online posts, Leiter's rankings, Ciolli, and virtually every other resource I could find from Mantauk to Turow, I almost feel obligated to pick CCN now that I've happily cracked it -- and, really, I couldn't be more grateful and thrilled.  Unfortunately, this feeling is more of an obligation than a choice.  Most resources tell students to go to the "best" school they can get into, and it seems like the conventional wisdom deflates any sense of accomplishment in having, say, Michigan if you have Columbia, or even Harvard.

(Even with money, sometimes.)

So, really, how significant is the difference between these two tiers?  Do they even exist?  (Some people say "no.")  I can't really wrap my mind around a terse, simple answer, and that's because, perhaps, there isn't one.

Law School Admissions / Deferred at Penn?
« on: January 22, 2008, 05:44:19 PM »
Yep.   :(  Maybe I'll send them something, but I just received a Michigan-esque type e-mail which told me they were holding my app until April.  "Although your credentials are impressive, we are limited in the amount of admission offers we can make at this point," or something to that effect (I'm paraphrasing with quotations).

Oh, well.

General Off-Topic Board / If You Could Live In Any Other Country?

It seems like they've maintained a trickle so far this cycle.  I don't know what to think.

General Off-Topic Board / I Miss Shivenstein
« on: January 19, 2008, 09:34:57 PM »
Ah, Ron, you were so brilliant, and you left us so young to go to Yale Law School.  Who will remain on LSD to tell us Rome wasn't built in a day?  Or urge us to go Ivy or bust?  And Wittgenstein?  I would have never picked up a copy of Tractatus if it wasn't for your exhortation.

You were the man, Shivenstein.  Let us honor you in silence.  Or, more accurately, the things of which we cannot speak we must pass over in silence.  ;)

I know you don't want to hear it but the LSAT is the key. With a score under 170 the options become very very bleak. An ivy league education is the goal!! "Rome wasn't built in a day" Please think about the June LSAT.


General Off-Topic Board / Is It Sunday Yet?
« on: January 17, 2008, 08:46:36 PM »
Two more days without the conference games?


I call:

Packers over Giants.
Patriots over Chargers.

Admit it.  You want a re-match of the 97 Super Bowl sans Bledsoe, too.
