General Off-Topic Board / Re: Grooming and fashion in law school?

Goodadvice is silly...but good thread nonetheless.

I plan on being comfy. And, to save money, I had my hair dyed back to its "natural" color...highlights are going to be too costly. I'm sad though, now a brunette where I was once a blonde.

going to have to do that too  :(
plus stylist is here...
too much $$$

Maybe pay for grooming expenses by reducing your food budget? Reducing the food budget by only $15 per week should be enough to pay for all your hair coloring and styling. Especially if you're carrying a few extra pounds. (Not that Redsox is carrying any extra weight.)

you've got to be kidding me.  i don't think you'll last in LS...just a hunch.  go f yourself.

I was awarded a full scholarship at Duquesne in Pittsburgh.  Great reputation in the area, but 3rd tier.  Also accepted at Pitt (assuming I'll get some money...thinking about $8K), but in top tier.  Also has good reputation in Pittsburgh.  Have applied other places (ie GW) and would love to go if accepted.  Would it be suicide to go to GW and incur all of that debt when someone is willing to pay for my whole education here (i'll have to sell my house, find an apt. in arlington that accepts large dogs...etc.)?

Not sure where I want to live after LS.  Wouldn't be too upset if it has to be Pittsburgh (i grew up here).

I make more than 50K, and I am so unhappy with my job (pharma sales) that I want to poke my eyes out!  Even if I don't "break even" right out of school, I think that I will be happier in the long run.

I got a letter yesterday offering a full academic scholarship (renewable for 2L and 3L if w/in top 50% of class).  I was blown away.  That makes the school much more attractive! ;D

Law School Admissions / Re: How much debt will you be in after LS?

I used to work at a country club (started caddying when I was 11 and worked summers until I was 21).  I would see people with cars that cost $80 k (BMW 7-series and such).  I did a lot of thinking about how much was too much.  And even though everybody does it, I think it's immoral to have a car that costs that much.  

Not a choice you'd make, but IMMORAL?  I plan to drive a range rover when I become successful.  I give back to charity, and to my church, but I don't think driving a luxury car that makes you happy is something immoral.  Just because there are poverty stricken  countries and such, I am not going to downsize my life, or make sacrifices.  I will earn my money...working LONG hours after 3 years of law school. 

We all make choices in life.  When I see someone driving a Ferarri, I think, "Wow, they paid too much for that car." But, I don't judge their morality.

Hey, I appreciate the offer to help.  If you had to recommend a day to come to observe, what day would it be?  What classes?  Profs?

Joe Campion listed a bunch of profs, but from a student's perspective...
