Law School Applications / Re: UK
« on: January 18, 2008, 01:48:06 PM »
I applied late Nov, got my acceptance in middle of December.  The only chance I will go there is if they offer a full ride + cash.  Even then, I doubt I would change my mind.

Law School Applications / Re: Northwestern ASW???

I adore Penn, and I don't really get all the Penn hatred here.

Interesting about Michigan, though.  I have never worked in a law firm, so I've never been exposed to anybody of merit who considered Michigan to be so well-regarded.

Oh I love Penn too.  I'm just well aware that its rise to fame is very recent, and I don't think it's legal reputation matches its rank.  Penn is not really a #6 school IMO.  It's just not.  Berkeley, UVa, Michigan, and Chicago are miles ahead of Penn in reputation.


I have to disagree with your statement.  At the end of the day, Penn is still an Ivy League school (same can be said about Cornell).  While the law school may be somewhat new to the ranking, the degree is nevertheless very prestigious.

Also, with UM and NU, the two schools are apples and oranges.  NU attracts different type of students than other T14 schools.  While I respect UM very much, it would take some convincing (money!!) for me to go to Michigan over NU.

Disclaimer: This is not to say that any school is your top choice...just that it would greatly ease your mind to hear from them for whatever reason.

Since we're all stressing out about the loooong wait, and since many of us have had long stretches of nothingness between news from law schools...

Which one of your pending schools would it be a huge sigh of relief to hear from?  A response of HYS is looked down upon for its simplicity.

It's NU for me, really.  If I could just get in there, then at least I'd have an option to leave DC and go to a great school where I'm pretty sure I'd be happy. 

...Of course, if Penn came a-callin, I'd certainly listen to what they had to say...  ;D

OP, do you have work experience?  If you have at least a year, I don't see any issue with you getting into NU.  

Best of luck you.  PM me if you have any questions.

This is the second time I'm going through the cycle.  The only thing changed was my LSAT score (I raised my score by about 5 points).  The results were dramatically different.

To your second question, I had a good job already, so waiting another year wasn't a big issue.

Law School Applications / Re: Using acceptances as leverage?
« on: January 12, 2008, 12:44:57 PM »
right, but that's about scholarships.  I'm wondering about original acceptances.  Do people even do that?

I wouldn't do it.  Too much like blackmail to me.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Re: SEO Corporate Law Internship

does anyone have any tips on preparing for the interview?  I heard that it was very hardcore last year.

I would recommend watch all six Rocky movies, as often as you can.  Then find Eye of the Tiger by Survivor, put it on you Ipod and listen to it all the way to the interview.

Guaranteed that will pump you up.

Law School Applications / Re: Need help picking some reaches 3.4/162
« on: January 12, 2008, 09:40:14 AM »
I would try NU, it's the only T14 school that you will have a decent shot at (because of the WE).

It's a shot at the moon, but you asked a good reach and I know people got in off the WL with your numbers.  Good luck!

Actually the logic used in that statement would not lead to that conclusion at all, and you're a jerk off.

Premises:
1. There are many activities that have a more serious impact on driving ability than a .06 alcohol level
2. You have most likely engaged in one of these activities
3. People who make hypocritical statements are jerk offs
4. A person who has committed an action and then tells another person that they have "no sympathy" for them after they commit a similar action is making a hypocritical statement

Conclusion:
You're a a jerk off-VALID

We should not have traffic laws-INVALID



  :D ;D ;D
