make sure that you have:

1) Spellchecked it first.
2) Read it aloud to yourself one time.

I have been receiving lots of essays with spelling/grammar issues that would have been discovered if the writer had turned into a "reader" for one look-through.

I just finished reading essay #63, and am tired.

I apologize to anyone who hasn't heard back yet, but I am trying to give a decent heartfelt critique to everyone. 


There is a Hippie Convention called "Vegoose" happening, and I am trying to win a free trip.  I need "unique clicks" on the link to win.  Will you all help me?  Please!

It will keep me from posting my stupid comments for a week while I am gone...that alone has to be worth it! ;D

Law School Admissions / "Demonstrated history of poor test taking"
« on: August 04, 2005, 04:18:52 PM »
Why would a school consider this an "excuse" for a crappy LSAT?  Wouldn't that mean that you would also do poorly on your law school tests/exams or maybe even the bar exam?

I am going to start at Wisconsin in 2006. (I deferred)

I am thrilled!!!!

This is one of the most popular thread topics, but people seem to post them everywhere.  The topic doesn't really fit anywhere, so they clutter up the other sections.  Any chance for a place for these?

(Sorry for the repost.  I originally put this in the Meta Discussion and didn't realize it should go here)

Black Law Students / What the heck do I say to this freak?
« on: July 28, 2005, 09:51:25 AM »
My SO's car got broken into last weekend (second time in a month), so I went around my block to tell our neighbors to keep an eye out for suspicious activity. 

I was telling this old guy about the break ins, and he responded with, "well, there's a colored family a block over, why don't you talk to them"  I was so shocked, all I could say was, "why would you say something like don't know those people" and walked away.

Then yesterday, he yelled from his front porch to another neighbor, "did you hear that those colored folks broke into another car last night?"

I want to confront this racist **&)@#, but I want to do it in such a way so that he will truly understand how backward and logically wrong his bigoted assumption is.  Any suggestions?

It seems that there are more and more of these.  While I don't mind stating my opinion, it's sometimes pretty irritating to see the same post like this in every single subforum here.  Since this question is common, can Andrew start a seperate section for this topic?

Law School Admissions / Question for applicants
« on: July 24, 2005, 06:15:11 PM »
It seems like there are hundreds of websites and books regarding the law school admissions process, yet hundreds of people keep asking the same questions over and over on this site.  There are resources that list the 25th/75th percentile for all the schools, but I keep seeing threads that ask "what are my chances?" based solely on numbers.

Can you all post the resources you can use for this info?  I will compile it in another thread so that people can find the info more easily.

A couple good ones:

The other board doesn't seem to get nearly the traffic this one does.  I am wondering when people stop considering themselves "prelaw" and start considering themselves 1L's

I asked for and was granted a deferral so I can start school in Fall 2006.  I called and got the news today.  This should mean another waitlisted person will get in.

Good luck everyone!
