Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Why is Cooley still ABA?
« on: July 25, 2004, 03:32:35 PM »

Paul Wellstone got something like 800 on the SAT, yet he became a phi beta kappa and later 2 term U.S senator.

are you saying he had no business going to college just because his SAT scores were so bad?


I had to take the ACT (equiv of SAT) and I bombed it. Why did I bomb it you ask? Well... I didnt study, I drank a 12 pack and a bottle of aftershock the night before and had only slept for about 2 hours. I figured if I hurried up and filled in the bubbles I could leave sooner and go home. On our little break I was throwing up in the bathroom. I had a bad senior year and was rebelling from my family (yet still pulled a 3.7 final GPA) so I didnt care. I still managed to get into a good school with a nice GPA and good explanation for my poor score.

Anyhow, people can @#!* up tests like this for many reasons.

Also, Michigan's former governor is a Cooley graduate. Cooley has a fine reputation from what I hear here in MI.

Granholm is a Cooley grad? Wow, I had no idea. She pledged her endorsement to Kerry early on and her husband has ties with him. So basically, if Kerry gets the nomination you can be sure he will be offering her a position once its time for the gubernatorial race. If a Cooley grad can win the race for the Governor of one of the largest states in the Country... and possibly get on the President's cabinet, Cooley is alright with me. :)

* aboynoir decides to put Cooley as one of his backup schools to apply to

Did you ever see that Jeff Daniels movie where he was a vacuum sales man and he managed to boost his sales by marketing the vacuums as sex toys for housewives or something?   He makes the weirdest movie choices. 

haha, yeah. I met him at the premier for his movie "Escanaba in Da Moonlight". Escanaba is a town about 1 hour south of where I go to school. Anyways, it is a pretty off the wall movie.

I am in court a least 2-3 times a month, i work for property manager and he gave me power of attorney to represent him in court... i dont do much talking we leave that to our attorneys but i like going to court, and the rare few times when i just actually allows me to speak (practically never, f-ing judges) i enjoy that too.

I am in court that often too. But... for other reasons. Damn man trying to hold me down.

Kidding of course. I have to sit in on cases for some classes and, occasionally, I will go watch court cases if there are any interesting ones being tried. The most interesting was a Psych Profesor who got busted for having a hydroponics pot setup in his apartment.

Furthermore, I was not scared off... just merely sleeping on the couch.

Is that you on the right or the left?

The dude with the beard is Jeff Daniels (Dumb and Dumber, God's & General's, etc.) I am in the Giants jersey. It is from my freshman year in college so it is a few years old.

I took my first diagnostic today with TestMasters.

I'm really just too embaressed to even post my score here... but let me put it this way to you: Robot Pimp said that 15 points is about the maximum increase to expect after the class... and 15 points plus my current diagonistic score won't get me anywhere that I want to go.

This is ridiculous. I have no idea how I could have done so poorly. I swear I'm a bright girl. What the hell is going on?

Reassurance please. Either that, or tell me to get the notions of law school out of my head. Seriously.



I have heard stories of that class having negative effects on a few people's scores. I would say find a new study/practice technique and keep trying until you can get your practice scores up to a level where you can confidently apply to schools. :) good luck
