Pittsburgh / Re: Where are you buying your books?

Nathenson's site doesn't mention it, but does anyone know if we'll be discussing the book for more than a single day?  I would be annoyed if I read the whole thing for an hour of class discussion.  I would prefer merely to watch the movie.

Pittsburgh / WiFi hotspots

Hello.  Does anyone know of any non-obvious hotspots for free wireless internet? That is, apart from Panera and on campus?

FWIW, Cingular works fine for me. 

Pittsburgh / Hot Summer

I grew up in this area.  Is it just me being sick of the heat (I've lived in a warm climate for the past two years), or is Pittsburgh having a really hot summer this year?

Pittsburgh / Re: recommend a bank

PNC has the fancier looking bank in Squirrel Hill (compared to Citizens).  This is the most important factor, IMO.

Hello everyone. I used to post quite often on the other board (prelaw), but I only remember a few of you.  There used to be a running joke about whether I was male or female.  To avoid confusion in our near future encounters, I am male.

Thanks for posting this information and where to find it, by the way.  Here's my schedule:

Contracts: Fletcher 1020
Legal Process: Brake 1020
Torts: Frolik 1030 (we can't go wrong with a prof named "Frolik" can we?)
Crim. Law: McCarthy 1030
Writing: Flannery 1040

If anyone needs paint, by the way, we can work something out. I work in that department at Lowe's Waterfront.  ; )

Law School Admissions / Re: The LSAT and Whoring

I think the last two posts, in conjunction, answer my query.

Law School Admissions / Re: The LSAT and Whoring

Most, if not all, whores need a pimp.  I mentioned this in my earlier post.  Any other suggestions?

Law School Admissions / The LSAT and Whoring
« on: May 30, 2005, 02:48:16 PM »
So, lots of schools are accused of being LSAT whores, which means that they offer admissions for high LSAT scores, just as regular whores offer sex for money.

Most whores have pimps in some form, and can rarely succeed without one (from "American Pimp").  Let's assume for now that law schools have a pimp.

Again, from the movie "American Pimp," we can learn the valuable lesson that "b!tch get no cut!"  That is, the pimp pays for the whore's expenses, helps ensure a steady flow of customers, and receives all of the whore's earnings. 

In the case of law school LSAT whores, the pimp would receive the high LSAT score while the school would offer admission.  But who plays this role of LS Pimp?  One is inclined to propose USNews.  For schools report the LSAT scores to USNews, much as a whore gives a pimp earned income.  But USNews does not take care of the school's expenses.  It only provides the school with more applicants, based on assigned ranking.  This is very pimplike, of course, but it's not enough.  Schools' geographic location will play easily as significant a role (overall).  Same with street corners.  A great pimp will get little business if his whore is on a suburban street corner near a flower shop (think Iowa). 

I am not proposing a tight analysis here, but I am uncertain as to whether "whore" is the appropriate metaphoric title for these schools.  I suspect that "slut" is a better fit.   Can anyone think of a (in my view, much needed) pimp for these LSAT whores?  Otherwise, NYU, for example, begins to look like a bit of a crack-addict.   

episode 1 and 2 werent just terrible star wars movies, they two of the worst movies i have ever seen, period.  episode 3 was better, but it was still really really bad.  i just cant get over the terrible writing and nonexistent acting.

empire > new hope > jedi >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ep3 > ep2 > ep1

This is the standard non-controversial StarWars fan/nerd view of things.  I agree with this view.
