Does he want to sit for the bar? If not, he'll probably be fine. If he wants to, it may come back to bite him in the arse, and he should work it out now before he potentially wastes a bunch of money.

Indiana - Bloomington / IU-B Class of 09

Hey everybody. IU-B is starting to look nicer the more I look at it, and assuming I don't squeeze in at any of my reaches, I'll probably end up in B-Town. Anyone else considering it?

I graduated from Harvard Law School three years ago after completing one year at BC. I've found that people really don't care about my 1L year because I had my diploma screen-printed onto a trucker's cap. I wear it at meetings and sh*t.

General Board / Re: INSTITUTIONAL DENIAL ABOUT THE DARK SIDE OF LAW SCHOOL

There are unsolvable mental disorders, disorders that have to be voluntarily dealt with medicinally. An ex of mine was having hallucinations, depression, and who knows what else... she was seriously f'd up... she saw demons and sh*t :o Maybe the concept of life with no me was that bad? ;D

Now, I will agree that there is a problem with overmedicating the public, but some issues have to be dealt with; and why spend years convincing yourself that the demons you see are fake when you can just take a pill and let it end? Just because one route is harder doesn't make it noble. Is it more noble to have a tiger chase you to the store than it is to just get in your car and drive there? Does that make the latter option the "lazy" option?

General Board / Re: full scholarships

Some California schools' scholarships are harder to get than other schools'. If you do well on the LSAT, you should definately get a scholarship from somewhere, and most schools have full scholarships available. If you get a 160+, I'd guess you could get a full ride to a few Cali schools... if you want a full ride to one of the TOP cali schools, you'll need at least a 170... HTH

Some of you know-it-alls need to wait until grades come out before speaking about how easy your competition is.

word... I learned at my wiz kids tryout in the third grade that you can't judge a brain by the person surrounding it.

Law school isn't as bad as people are lead to believe. The readings may pile up, but there is always enough time to read them. The material isn't terribly difficult to understand, and the socratic method, at least at my school, isn't very intimidating. The problem with law school is that you never know how you stand in relation to your peers, or should I say competitors. You're not quite sure as a 1L what you should be getting from the material. So... if you are comfortable with the fact that you'll learn what you'll learn and will not know how you are doing until exams, then law school isn't too bad. If, on the other hand, you can't accept not knowing, if you stress out, if you're confused about the material, if you get too far behind, then law school is as hard as they say.

I spent about $950 for my class books, $66 for a Black's, and I will be buying a couple of E&Es... so over a grand for my books this semester.  >:(
