I think it can be explained with simple psychology... the hot person in the relationship wants domination over their partner, whether consciously or subconsciously.

and i don't necessarily mean sexually. They just like to know they're in charge in the relationship and can keep the other party on a short leash.

does that make sense, cause I'll be honest... I never took psychology  :-X .

No. This is bull. Stick to engineering, ass  :D

 8) No respect for genatio once again. 8)

But back to the issue...

What about the ugly person having amazing felating ability?

As far as the Europe question?  I am rocking to Italy in a couple weeks.  We'll ultimately end up in Prague.  I am stoked as I have never been.  My thoughts exactly...this is the time to do it.  As a heads up for anyone who wants to go...ticket prices are a nightmare.

Pretty much what I thought. The car stays at home. Just too much $ and trouble for how busy I will be. Thanks for the advice.

AHHH! Of course you had to say Italy. I spent an amazing semester in Rome my junior year and I would love to go back. One thing I would advise you to do (which I never got to, but heard amazing things about) is to go to stromboli. It is a small active volcanic Island off the coast of Naples/Sicily, and it supposed to be unreal. Night hikes with trained guides to check out lava flows... Thatís just my thing though. Also, Cinque Terre cannot be missed. The amazing museums, food, gelato, people... You are going to have a blast........

If you are traveling to praha, I assume you will be going by train. Definitely stop for a few days in Interlaken, Switzerland. Its one of the coolest places I have ever been. Beautiful hiking in the Swiss Alps, adventure sports (I went skydiving - you must do it if you have the nerve), great laid back people... If you are staying in hostels I recommend the Funny Farm. Great fun.

You have really inspired me. I am thinking of just selling everything I own and trying to make it happen. I figure after this year my summers will be filled with long hours in an office somewhere, then after law school... well we all know what happens then. No more backpacking... (wait why did I say that! I WILL GO BACKPACKING FOREVER!!!  :))

Being that the title of the post is "Would You????", I would have to resoundingly say hell no, I wouldn't go to Cooley. You have a 4.0, you are an URM, and your LSAT score can be vastly improved.

I'd take a year to work on my LSAT and then apply again. I doubt it's your undergrad that's screwing you. Did you include a letter with your applications explaining the situation with your undergrad's grading scheme?

hell... if you can break a 160 on the LSATs, I'd say you have a good chance of getting into Berkeley...

I hate to confuse you but I think I would have to agree with Ginatio. A 4.0 is a 4.0 that's not the problem, it's your lsat. Your only 21, sit out a year, try to find a job at a law firm or something, or travel, STUDY for the lsat this time, and I bet you could get into a better school.  Granted, I don't know how much tuition is at Cooley but it's not like they are even giving you 100%, if it were 100% it may have made a difference.  But if I were you I would wait. Good luck with whatever decision you choose.   

Yikes this is going to throw you off.

I thought about this a little more, and I think it would be a good idea to contact some other schools and ask them what they think about your transcript situation. If they sound receptive, then maybe you should think about putting things off and re-applying next year after you retake the lsat. Obviously focus on schools that will not average your lsat scores.

If you write several addenda about your college and first lsat score, you really could improve your chances in a year or two. It is a tough decision! Good luck.

The thing is, since you already have the 147, even if you bust tail and make something in the mid 160's, your score will still be averaged to the mid 150's (except for a couple of schools that will take the higher score).

So my advice would be to take the $ and work your heart out. Cooley is not terrible school like many may claim. Just go and prove yourself and maybe try to transfer after the first year.

Best of luck to you.

Ahh the wilderness challenge... Brings back rough childhood memories.

DOWNY, I don't know why but I like how your mind works.

Another question for those of you in the bay area.

Is it a good idea to bring my car up there? I know parking is a huge problem, so I am thinking about leaving it in orange county.

Agreed on previous statements.

All I can say is that I am quite excited for school to start.

Before this point: work work work work
After this point: quit job, travel to Europe, see friends from home, go to law school.

Sounds good to me!

Europe? Where exactly? I wish I could do that soooooo bad. I might just do it since I have a feeling this is going to be the last summer for "carefree backpack" travel.

But, perhaps, while staring at the poverty day in and day out, we will be reminded why we are there and the importance of good lawyers. 

That's exactly what my friend (just finished 1L) said about Hastings. She feels that living out of the Tower, and being forced to use public transportation to get to class, keeps her grounded since she sees the homeless people and the "everyday" people of real life.

I can't believe that girl in your LSAT class... if she's serious about not liking to read, the process (the LSAT or law school itself)will weed her out.

So have your tower plans changed alternet?

I need to see this tower and the surrounding area (day and night) ASAP.

Today I will call the admissions office to try and get some emails of 2L's who lived in the tower as 1L's. Get some straight info.
