General Off-Topic Board / ITT: You tell me what to do with my life.
« on: April 21, 2008, 09:03:00 AM »
As my lawschool application experiment seems to be drawing to an unexpected close, I have to decide on a new life choice. 
     I basically like reading and playing video games, and eating at WAY to expensive restaurants.  Workwise Im really good at telling people their *&^% out of luck in regards to getting their money back.  I have certification and a degree as a highschool teacher, but frankly I'm not interested at yelling at children who won't listen anyways.  Perhaps an MPH, or Academic Administration?  Also considering repairing electronics.

Perhaps getting on a train heading west, and finding my fortune as a 30s era hobo?

Law School Admissions / Contacting Dean of Admissions Advisability
« on: April 08, 2008, 08:14:57 AM »
When I attended the NYC LSAC Forum, I visited the suffolk table, and noted how I was giving serious consideration to attend their institution as most of the lawyers I have met in my lifetime have been alumni.  I noted my numbers were at the 75% LSAT wise and above median GPA wise, and indicated I was interested in receiving a small degree of merit based financial aide.  The gentleman (who was associate director of admissions) gave me the private email of the dean of admissions and told me to be proactive in the matter.

Fast forward to now.  I received an unexpected waitlist from suffolk, but still have the deans email address.  Should I shoot over an informal LOCI (already sent a formal one) indicating my continued interest despite the waitlisting?  I dont want to be a creepy stalker, but Id like to go to a boston school, and this seems to be a proactive move.  Ballsy, or BAD IDEA?

Choosing the Right Law School / Annoyed

Waitlisted at Suffolk with #s at 75%.  Thinking this isnt for me, and that fate may have given me a hint.

Law School Admissions / Acceptances Done?
« on: March 14, 2008, 02:34:17 PM »
According to LSN, Suffolk hasnt offered any acceptances since 2/21. Does this mean that their done with acceptances this year? Despite the fact that I applied Oct 10, have a 75% LSAT and above median GPA, do you guys think that I may want to write it off as them having overenrolled early and begin thinking of alternatives for next year?

Worlds funniest opinion

(stolen from JDU)

Scroll down to where the judge begins mocking the two lawyers inability to cite or research case law.

General Off-Topic Board / I hate my job so much
« on: March 06, 2008, 01:10:16 PM »
   I send invoices from a vanity publishing company all day informing people that their credit card has probably been charged without authorization, and then providing credits when they call outraged.  I need to change my life IMMEDIATELY.

I applied to all of my schools early, will I hear SOMETHING from them before the priority deadlines go into effect?  Even if its a WL or some kind of weird deferral?

General Off-Topic Board / Military History Reading Suggestions?
« on: March 03, 2008, 07:31:08 AM »
I feel like I've exhausted most of the military history available to me.  Ive read most of the Greek and Latin histories as well as Gibbons and Shelby Foote and finished up the Three Kingdoms and Outlaws of the Marsh as well as a lot of the European epics (Roland, El Cid, Niebelgunlied, etc)  Im about to start the Tale of the Heike, but I need more obscure military epics.  Muslim and far eastern stuff would be appreciated.

Incoming 1Ls / Is JDUnderground realistic
« on: February 20, 2008, 02:06:14 PM »
It seems as though every lawyer, well paid or unemployed, that posts over there is either massively depressed or jaded.  Is that all there is to look forward to, dreaming of defaulting on loans or smashing lower prestige auto insurance firms?
