General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Petrified
« on: December 16, 2004, 10:27:27 AM »
of public speaking.. absolutely terrified.. Will this be a detriment to my success in law school.. I am hoping I can overcome this fear as my mother and father are both professors and have been speaking in public for some time (so it must be somewhere in my genes).. I get sooooo nervous when giving a presentation and am worried this could have a negative impact on my success in law school.. Anyone else a piss poor public speaker?!?!  Am I screwed?!?!

General Off-Topic Board / ARE LAWYERS OVERPAID?? UNDERPAID?
« on: November 30, 2004, 04:37:14 PM »
IM TALKING ABOUT BIGLAW FIRMS HERE.. YOU KNOW THE 125K bull YOU READ EVERYWHERE.. IN MY ESTIMATION.. THEY MUST BE OVERPAID.. EVEN IF THEY ARE WORKING 80HR. WEEKS.. I MEAN, MAN, 125K IS SOME BANK IN DA SOUTH..

45
MY GUESS IS AROUND 2% MAX.. I THINK STRENGTH OF SCHOOL, DIFFICULTY OF MAJOR, AND EXTRACURRICULAR/WORK EXPERIENCE ARE FAR MORE IMPORTANT AND REVEAL MUCH MORE ABOUT AN APPLICANT..

MOST IMPORTANT THINGS ARE NUMBERS/URM STATUS.. I THINK THE PS SCARES TOO MANY PEOPLE INTO SENDING OUT THEIR APPS EARLY... WHICH IS ALSO AN IMPORTANT ASPECT, IN MY MIND, TO GETTING ACCEPTED AT THE SCHOOL OF YOUR CHOICE..

THOUGHTS?

WELL?!?

Im excited about their location, cost, local rep, and environmental law program..

Have a passionate Thanxgiving,

Acceptances / UPCOMING DECISION ASSISTANCE
« on: November 19, 2004, 11:14:03 AM »
Hmmmmm..

Just got accepted to UGA this morning..  
So, assuming I went, Id be paying 25k my first year and probably pay instate tuition as a resident for my final two yrs (Ive already inquired about this and have been told that this is the normal procedure for out of state applicants)..

I have also applied to pt programs at Gtown and GW where I currently live and am employed. If accepted, I am sure I will get very little money.. so that is what 35k per yr?!? plus a higher cost of living in DC!

On to my question..

It seems to me that it may be wiser to go fulltime to a top tier, fairly decent school, than stretch myself to working a job as an engineer to pay off school while attending part time at a school like gtown or gw...

I mean.. are the job prospects THAT MUCH better at schools like gtown, gw, emory, or other mid top tier ranked private institutions (where I will be paying an arm and a leg if accepted) than UGA...

All this, is of course, speculation.. but I am wondering what other peoples thoughts on debt load vs. reward of attending a higher ranked institution are..
