General Off-Topic Board / Re: Dave Chapelle vs. Larry David
« on: January 31, 2005, 12:25:49 AM »
I've tried to enjoy The Chapelle Show a couple of times, but I just didn't find much of it funny at all; at best, I smirked a couple of times while he did his Black Bush skit, but that's about it.

As for Larry David, I still watch several episodes of Seinfeld every week and can barely contain myself.  I think I need to check out Curb Your Enthusiasm sometime. 

Acceptances / Re: University of Washington Big numbers change?

Could this be related to part of the mysterious numbers shift?

Acceptances / Re: whos still in the in at nowhere club

Ummm, what I mean was "it is just as bad as if I had defended child molestation".  Honestly, though, don't you think a PS defending child molestation would get noticed?

The question remains, did your personal statement deal with defending child molestation? First you said it did, then you said this. Which is it? I'm beginning to think you're a pathological liar, as it seems like you're always changing up your story on a number of things. 

Acceptances / Re: In at Columbia!

Nicely done, congrats!

I've got basically the same stats (slightly lower GPA) and went complete the same date at Columbia.  Hopefully you are right about e-mailing you because you're in Canada, and the rest of us in the states can hope for something from the postal service in a few days...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Temple vs. Pitt ?
« on: January 28, 2005, 11:56:24 AM »
Are you in-state? Temple is a pretty damn good deal for in-state residents.  Although, now that I think about it isn't Pitt in the same psuedo-public category as Temple? I guess they may have very similar tuition rates. 

If you truly don't have an opinion one way or the other on which city you want to live in, I'd say that you should go to Temple.  If only because I've got a Philadelphia bias.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: took first practice LSAT

mattb23: If you were even considering sending an application to Yale, you should definitely still do so.  I do not think Yale is on rolling admissions, and from what I've read you would not be disadvantaged by sending an application in this late in the game.  (This is all coming from someone who didn't bother applying there, so what do I really know?)

Acceptances / Re: In at U of Houston with SUPER LOW NUMBERS!!!!

That's fantastic, congrats!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Big Law to Public Interest Career?
« on: January 27, 2005, 09:10:38 PM »
I don't have anything special to add, but I am having similar thoughts.  If I work in a large firm, it will be mainly for the reasons you listed. What is LRAP?

LRAP stands for "Loan Repayment Assistance Plan."  It's basically a loan forgiveness/assistance plan that a lot of school's offer to help public interest folks manage their debt.  Each school has different plans (if they even have one) and most of the ones I've looked into are pretty complex and complicated. 

Law School Applications / Re: What do you plan to do after law school?
« on: January 26, 2005, 11:50:01 PM »
I want to eventually do public interest work, or perhaps governmental/political work of some sort.  I'm thinking seriously about going into biglaw for a few years immediately after law school for financial purposes, but we'll see about that. (I actually just started a thread about this idea in the General Board for Soon to Be 1-Ls)

Law School Applications / Re: Wildly unrealistic expectations.

Yep, every time I talk to my mom I hear the word Harvard come up.  Every acceptance I've received, even my safeties, has provided more evidence to her that I'm sure to get into Harvard.  ::)
