Transferring / Re: T4 or T3?
« on: August 09, 2006, 03:49:59 PM »
So, now T3 say that because I made LR at my old school, I can bring them my letter of invitation and do LR there too...my, oh my!!!

I've never heard of anything like that in my entire life.  Sounds like the T3 is not much more reputable than the T4, no offense.....

What you are failing to realize is that the United States has a 33% illiteracy rate.


you have a link for this claim?

I am glad this was challenged as I was a bit off in my posting.  The world illiteracy rate is upwards of 35%+.  However, the illiteracy rate in the U.S. is only around 14%.  Nonetheless, this is still an extremely high percentage.  It also is enough to comment that the statement regarding the "average person" as intelligent is far from accurate.

See the study by the NAAL for detailed statistics.

Yet you think the "average" person can graduate college.

I was able to get it for free, but I wouldn't pay $50-100 bucks or anything for it.  Nothing is necessary.  Sure, you can use word, but if one note makes my life easier and it didn't cost me anything than so be it.

Yeah, I saw the SP2 on their website.  If I go to "check for updates" right in one note, will it automatically install SP2 or do I have to download it seperately?

Jacy, I just grabbed one note recently and I was wondering if you know of any type of "manual" out there explaining the many different functions, etc....?

There is not a good selection of electives after you've completed your second (traditionally your first) year.  Let's face it:  most of the best electives are offered during the day, since most law professors are not too thrilled with the prospect of teaching night school.


Maybe this is true at lower ranked schools but I know GW offers quite a bit of evening electives each semester.  Also, PT students can take classes in the day if they are dead set on a specific class.

Lastly, every lawyer I have spoken to has told me that electives should be used to better prepare you for the bar, let the firms train you in the particular field of law you are interested in.  That being said, the important electives will always be around for PT students to take.

Yale U / Re: Please help a prospective law student
« on: June 12, 2006, 09:28:45 AM »
If you are honestly looking at Yale, all that matters are GPA and an LSAT above 175.  Even then you have no guarantees. 

Why do people constantly post the same thing over and over again?  Like it or not, Law School Admissions = LSAT + GPA.  Sure, there are exceptions, but generally they are few and far between at any reputable school.

Not sure where you got that info moron, but it isn't true.  I have ONE screen name.  Only jerk offs like you create multiple screen names.

Life isn't fair.  You could possibly get away with not listing them on the application if it just refers to a police record and makes no mention of "expunged charges."  However, you WILL have to list it on your SF-86 which goes along with your application to the board so you might as well remain consistant.

Even hadn't you been convicted, you would still have to list the original charges on your security clearance form.  Just google SF86 and you can see what it looks like.  Any police involvement will require the date of the offense as well as the disposition of the case, even if all charges are dropped.

Fair to you isn't what they are after.  They want to know the background of the potential officers who will have our soldiers, seamen, and airmen's  lives in their hands. 

Just be completely candid and everything will be fine.  They aren't out to get you, just to get to know you ;).
