General Off-Topic Board / Re: Firefox
« on: February 07, 2005, 05:24:34 AM »
There are 3 main advantages to Firefox for me.

1) Better interface (tabbed browsing rocks).
2) More stable - doesn't crash like IE does.
3) No more adware/spyware installed through IE activex controls. If you use Firefox and take basic precautions like installing antivirus software, keeping windows up-to-date, and running ad-aware once a month or so, you should NEVER have any spyware/adware. The last few times i have run ad-aware since installing Firefox, it has detected none.

Firefox is the first thing I install on any PC i will be using. I can't stand IE anymore.

Get the adblock extension from the same site, and a good list of adblock filters. No more ad banners/popups/annoying animations!

Making them ORMs?

Sorry about the ding - you don't sound too down about it, though. I hope I have the same attitude when I get the letter.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: LSAT 175-180

I got the princeton review book, took the tests on the cd. took the tests on the cd that came in the mail from LSAC. I think. I may be remembering the GRE, took them fairly close together. had lots of distractions of noise and no caffiene taking practice tests, and loaded up on coffee the morning of. I think I had some luck; in my test, the experimental section came easy, and was very difficult. It helped me refocus for the rest of the test.

I think its the GRE that sends you the test prep CD in the mail.

A great time to get some awesome shower sex.  A little extra lube never hurt, as long as you think of it that way. 

Very, very nice...any women agree here? Should I float the idea?

Wait a year, take the LSAT again, and apply to all the schools you want to go to. This is the rest of your life we're talking about here - how could it be "good enough"?

Top 5% is highly variable between universities. At my university (Georgetown) only, top 7% would be a 3.8 or above. A 3.8 from Georgetown won't get you dinged anywhere, so long as you have an LSAT to match.

Law School Admissions / Re: Take Law Degree Away?
« on: February 05, 2005, 10:23:59 AM »
I think its theoretically possible, but what is more likely is that you would be disbarred on character and fitness grounds. There are plenty of people who have gone to jail and been disbarred as a result, but I haven't heard of anyone losing their law degree retroactively because of it. A fraudulent application might be a special case, but I still doubt it.

Law School Admissions / Re: F**** Up GPA - HELP......No Really PLEASE help!
« on: February 05, 2005, 09:48:00 AM »
Ok, this is my situation.  In my first two undergrad years, I was a pre-med major and that SUCKED.  We are talking below 2.5.  I transferred out of there and went to another school, where I again did pre-med (DON'T ASK) for a year.  Finally, I switched to poli sci.  I graduated with a 3.3 cumulative (because of pre-med courses) but with 3.6 major GPA.  I'm currently doing a MA in International Relations and I have a 3.7.  My fear is that when I send in the transcript from my old undergraduate school, my 3.3 will dragged even lower.  What are my chances at top schools?  I totally kick ass on LR and RC sections (22+ right) without even practice.  I'm really bad at LG so I'm taking a testmasters prep course.   

P.S. - Does this make a good addendum?

You probably do want to write a GPA addendum, but that's not a very good one. I'd recommend against writing "SUCKED" in one, especially in all caps.
