General Off-Topic Board / The Show Starts Monday!!!!!
« on: September 24, 2004, 05:03:08 PM »
Good bye for the weekend, LSD land!

On Monday, I hope to begin a weeklong march to 5000.  Won't you all join me?  See you then.

Cho, it's on.  Starting Monday, you're going to have to race me to get to 10 before I hit 5.  You'll have your work cut out for you.

Law School Applications / The Law School Appreciation Thread
« on: September 24, 2004, 05:01:06 PM »
Sometimes I sit back, like right now, and let it really sink in that I'm going to law school.  That's huge!  As much as I'm on this board, it's easy to think of it so in the abstract that the reality is so often lost to me.

Then I think, further, to the fact I'll actually be competitive for some of the nation's top schools!  That's absolutely flabbergasting, and I get taken aback at times and can't believe it.  A year from now, I could be going to a T-14 (or maybe not, who knows?)!  That's really humbling, and none of it's real to me right now.  But the thing that got me on this kick is I sat back a minute ago and thought, you know, I could ACTUALLY end up going to Berkeley!  How cool would that be?  Because right now, that's not even real to me.  I'm just some country boy from small-town Ohio.  Why do I deserve consideration at the nation's top law schools?

Is anyone else just humbled by this amazing opportunity we all have?  We should just sit back and be grateful sometimes for what we have.

General Off-Topic Board / WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF GRAVEYARD
« on: September 23, 2004, 04:20:02 PM »
I Like Any Graveyard That Has Gothic Tombstones.  Angel Statues On Headstones Are Certainly A Big Yes-Yes.  Crypts Are A Must.

Law School Applications / Question on medians
« on: September 22, 2004, 11:47:29 AM »
I just had my U-Grad transcripts processed by LSAC.  My LSAC UGPA is a little higher than my institutional one (but insignificantly so).  My question is about medians.

My school's median GPA is 3.16.  Does this imply little/no grade inflation?  I tend to think this will look good alongside my LSAC 3.86. 

My school's LSAT median is 150... not so good!  I wonder who all these people taking the LSAT were... my 165 looks pretty good by comparison, but I wonder if it will hurt me that other people at my school are sucking it up on the LSAT?

Any comments/thoughts about these matters would be appreciated.

Law School Applications / State Supreme Court Clerkships
« on: September 22, 2004, 10:17:54 AM »
I have a question for everyone, just to see if anyone has any answers.

I know it's pretty much the ultimate to get a US Supreme Court Clerkship.  If you do that, you're the man/woman.  But what about a State Supreme Court Clerkship?  How prestigious is that?  Is it higher/lower than a Federal Court?  What's the pecking order?  Just something I'm curious about, if anyone has any perspective to lend to it.

General Off-Topic Board / Weird to be 24...
« on: September 17, 2004, 10:02:31 AM »
Yeah, so two days ago I was 23.  I almost forgot my own birthday, actually, until my sister reminded me of it.

It's weird to think that now I'm not only not a teenager, I'm a 20-something.  Nothing feels any different.  I wonder if you ever really feel different in life, or if your body just starts falling apart on you.

General Off-Topic Board / Signing out for the day... Goodbye!
« on: September 16, 2004, 05:13:35 PM »
Bye Cho, Jayhawkgirl, and whoever else in on.  I'm gone for the day.  Pookie and Absy, fend off Mukhia in my absence, and keep our anti-A thread pure!

Tomorrows...

General Off-Topic Board / Up to 44.5 Posts per day!
« on: September 16, 2004, 11:08:34 AM »
I wonder if I'll hit 50 at some point?  That would just be ridiculous.  My posts per day are like a thermometer slowly rising... I remember back to when it was like 20.
