Choosing the Right Law School / Missouri Residency
« on: February 28, 2005, 12:39:48 PM »
Does anybody know if I can become a resident of MO for tuition purposes after 1L? I will be moving to KC in July and buying a house, registering my car, voting, etc. I imagine the rules would be the same at UMKC and Mizzou.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Finally! A merciful ding from UT

Got the short letter today. I've been waiting for this so I can put my house up for sale, get my wife a job somewhere and get ready to leave Austin. I never knew a ding could be such a relief.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / T-shirt from DePaul
« on: February 15, 2005, 06:26:15 AM »
I got a "DePaul Law" shirt in the mail yesterday, along with a card congratulating me on my acceptance. It's too big. Problem is, I'm not sure if this refers to the PT program (to which I've already been admitted) or the FT program (I've been waitlisted).  ???

Anybody else get one?

Anybody considering UMKC this fall? Anybody even applied there? Anybody FROM Kansas City?

I'm going to visit and sit in on a class in March.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Marquette deferral

I'm not sure I understand what this means, since Marquette doesn't do EA.

General Off-Topic Board / Grammar Lesson Thread
« on: December 06, 2004, 01:46:36 PM »
This thread is for the purpose of improving the writing skills of future lawyers, including myself. We all have weaknesses when it comes to the mechanics of writing (my biggest is definitely spelling, or is that 'definately'?). Please share good rules of grammar here, or just your grammatical pet peeves.

Lesson 1- Their, There, and They're

'Their' is a word which indicates possession by more than one, as in, "Yale law students suck. I hate THEIR pretentiousness."

'There' refers to a place, as in, "Harvard is for silly-ass over-achievers with gigantic egos; I'd never go THERE."

'They're' is simply a contraction of 'they' and 'are'. For example, "People who score above 170 on the LSAT are generally very smart. Just ask them. THEY'RE likely to be the first ones to bring it up in conversation"

These words ARE NOT interchangeable, contrary to what you might read on this forum.

Anybody care to take 'Your' and 'you're' next?
