Do you really think oil is the motivation?

Wouldn't Mexico be a better source, they are very close to home. They also have massive untapped oil resources.

And piss off his #1 foreign fan, El Presidente Vincente Fox?  He's not that dumb...I think ::)

No, they don't adjust for geographical COLA.  However, some schools may provide a breakdown of starting salaries by region.

For those of you out of the loop, that song is sung to Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire".

Thank you that's going to be stuck in my head until I go to sleep tonight   ;D

Studying for the LSAT / Re: PowerScore vs. Testmasters

There were only 8 people enrolled in my Powerscore class. Only 6 would usually bother to show up to class.

The friend that took Testmasters in SoCal had about 70 people in her class.  I've heard that's normal around LA.

I am quite alrmed at the amount of people, not just the ladies, but most of you all have your life already planned out just when it is beginning. There is nothing wrong with 5 year plans, at all, in fact I think they are an a excellent idea only if you keep in mind that most 5 year plans will never turn out as you plan.

I was pissed off because I just lost the long response I was writing to this, but I just saw RockyMtnHigh's post.

I understand what Swifty is saying, but I think that line of thinking often discourages young people from making any substantial life plans at all.  Why plan if it's futile?

In my own observations, outside circumstances don't usually cause plans to fail.  Most people make life plans arbitrarily, based on little outside research and self-analysis.  I think that the key to a successful life plan are the things that RockyMtnHigh mentioned-contemplating your personal purpose and vision- and where your strengths and interests fall in with that.  Few people are willing to spend the time and effort to go through that self-analysis before making plans.

That's funny...

When I first started looking into LSAT prep over 2 years ago, I noticed that the Powerscore and Testmasters websites were virtually identical, with the exception that Powerscore had less locations but was cheaper.  I e-mailed PS asking if they were the same company, and got a really long e-mail about why they were better, that there was some dispute between the founders of the 2 companies, etc etc.   

I've never heard two companies with such a personal grudge against each other.

adopt an appropriate age kid

Appropriate age is when they move out on their own.

Ha!  Here's the goal: adopt a kid that looks MUCH younger than they actually are.  Like 16-17, but looks like they're 12.

LSAT horror stories / Re: What should I tell her?

As you are a newbie, I will try to be gentle.

It was a basic assumption of the post that, regardless of her ability to perform on the test, under pressure, or on anything else, my friend will be attempting to acquire a legal education.  Hence, the suggestion of this not being the field for her is noted, but kindly disregarded. 

If after considering this assumption you have further helpful thoughts, I would appreciate anything else you might have to offer. :)  Thanks.

Nicely done :)

And I did read your whole post, BTW.
