Law School Admissions / Re: Question on lateish Application

In terms of rolling admissions, the sooner the better.  You will still be disadvantaged compared to people who took the June or September tests and already have their apps in.  Turning in your apps before you get your score will give you the advantage over people who wait for their December score and then fill out and send their applications.  Schools can start evaluating your application as soon as your score is in, but if you were to wait they couldn't start until all parts of your application are received (the application itself, Dean's certificates, any signatures if necessary, etc).  So really turning them in before your score might only be a small advantage but you will be in line for review before all the other people who are waiting to receive their score.

agree, and you enevr know when there will be a f-up and some schools take weeks to get your app compleate. If anything at least send your app in mid nov so as soon as your score is realsed they have everything ready to go and can review your app from that day on.

Current Law Students / Re: NOT going to class

I miss class all the time, have good grades, go to a good school, and have a Biglaw offer.  Get over yourself dude.  If you want to go to class because you want to, awesome, but don't act like you need to go to succeed in law school because you flat out don't.

This, and other similar comments regarding class attendance, seem to help make the case for distance/internet based law schools.

One that skips class goes at least 1L year for the most part.  Socratic method is important, like it or not.

That said, no law job worth it's time will ever take a distance law school grad seriously.  If you wanna flush your money into University of Distant Law School go right ahead.

1L needs to be in person I agree, but there is no reason you could not have 2/3L compleatly online if you half way intelgant. I took two online classes in LS and wish we had more.

I considered that, but I have already took the LSAT last year and i scored only a 159. So if I apply now with a 159, will they automatically know that I am taking the lsat in dec and NOT make a decision until then?

I think I rember there being a box to check on some apps that you were taking the exam again. You could allways just inculde a letter saying such.

That's intense. She did have a much better six pack than me though...

Should I feel bad for laughing because, not only does she have hidden testes, but "semen" in her name?

Not as bad as you would feel if you laughed and said that in front of her and she got pissed enough to try and beat you up.  The way she is built she certainly could kick my arse.

and you could not run away from her either, she's faster than any man not form Kenya

That beating would be richly earned. Of course I would stick around and take it.

Kick her in the balls then run and get as much of a head start as you can

That would probably be a very deep kick to the abdomen, so I doubt it would work. Besides, I'm a big fan of taking responsibility for making really stupid decisions. The beating would be deserved.

Would you lay there and take it, try to defend yourself, or try and tap out by screaming 'uncle' (the magic 'I've had enough' code word that used to work in grade school to stop getting beaten on)?

Oh no, I wouldn't just lay there! I'd approach it like I would getting jumped into a gang: get a couple shots in to save some dignity, then take whatever comes.

well you would have to be forver that guy who got his ass kicked by ahermpodite

Cure polio, and most students don't know who the hell you are, but get your ass kicked by one hermaphrodite...

They cured polio?

being dyslxic I read the thread title as 'Ask for a recomendation in  prison" and my first thought was, umm, no. But I agree now with the other poster now that I read it right.
