Law School Admissions / Re: should pookie apply to northwestern?

i agree with some of the others.  if u don't want to go there then don't apply.  seems like a pretty cut and dry decision to me.

west virginia university has one and it refreshes automatically every 15 seconds.

my 4 year old should be watching barney and blues clues.  here mvoie selection should consist of disney movies.  i highly doubt sesame street will say S.O.D.O.M.Y today's word of the day.

now if i let me child flip through channels, or left her to watch tv on her on and she turned to jerry springer, i can't get mad at the tv station.

the problem is parents don't watch things with their kids.  parents today are letting tv, computers, vidoe games, other people, and everything else raise their children for them.  its easier to buy them expensive things than to communicate with them.  i'm sorry, but one breast or a white chick jumping into a blk dudes arms doesn't create "bad" kids.  its the parents not being parents anymore and then wondering why little timmy went to high school with a gun and killed the lunch lady.

timmy's parents didn't teach him right from wrong and thats teh key.  i watched just as many violent movies as the next guy, but i b4 i started watching them my parenst instilled a sense of right and wrong in me.  I was taught that whtas on tv and in the movies isn't real and violence isn't the answer to every situation.  i don't care what is shown on tv: breast, penis, guys gettign their heads cut off, or whatever.  if parents would just do their job then children wouldn't be so "influenced."

but hey thats just my opinion.

i wrote my PS on starting on a career path and realizing that the path i was on was leading me to law school.  sounds weird i know, but it makes a lot of sense once u read it.

i say use it, but spin it.

1.  u did what u had to do to support ur family yet u didn't let it become a way of life.  u paid the bills and went to school.  kick ass!

2.  u did something i never heard of and started a union for strippers.  i'm impressed!  then u worked on a documentary about.  again, kick ass!

i think b/c of all the good stuff that came out of it, mentioning that u were a stripper may not be such a bad thing.  now if u were like me and just did it for the money, then i would say leave it out.

people always complain about what is shown on television and how the networks should be responsible.  they usually say children shouldn't be seeing this, that, and the other.  if u don't like it, swtich the channel or turn the tv off.  if its not appropriate for ur child don't let ur kid watch it.  lately no one wants to take responsibility for anything.  don't blame the violence and sex b/c u have an out of control kid.  blame ur sucky parenting skills.  don't call the tv station complaining that ur child is being exposed to violence and sex.  don't let him watch the OC, and pretty much anything else on fox. how about spending less time on complaining and more time raising ur kids.

its a novel idea, but it just might work.

Law School Admissions / Re: Inserting a plot graph into my addendum

even with a graph aren't u going to have to explain it anyway.  i would say save the space and just write it.  besides they have ur transcripts and can see increases in ur gpa.


since i was not there and only have ur side of the story its hard to say what u should do.  if it truly was a bad interviewer then i would call and talk to someone in admissions.  let them know what happened and see what ur options are.  the thing is, who will they believe a "respected almunus" or one of the thousands trying to get in.  

if there has been other complaints then that will help add validity to ur complaint.  if u r the only one u could possibly be seen as someone that had a bad interview and is now trying to shift the blame.

not trying to be mean, just pointing out the other side.
