General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Pre-law books
« on: March 31, 2006, 09:00:12 PM »
I am just curious about what you all thought was valuable and what you would recommend to others.  There is a lot of talk about these books, and I know many of you have read them.  Hopefully, our opinions can help the new crop of lawyer wannabes coming on this site in the coming months. 

Thanks in advance for your input everyone!

Meta Discussion / So this is a for-profit website, huh?

Just wondering if this website is for profit or if the ads are just there to pay the hosting.

For those who aren't aware, the OWLS are the "Older Wiser Law Students".  Many law schools have this group.  I am going to start one up at Wisconsin.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Why are you going to law school?
« on: March 22, 2006, 09:31:23 AM »
Just wondering why people are choosing to go to law school.  Seems like there is a lot of talk about money here these days.  I am curious as to whether money is the main motivation or not.

General Off-Topic Board / People who are IN law school still post here?
« on: February 06, 2006, 02:28:24 PM »
I was hangin' around here last cycle to see what was shakin', then left for months and months and came back to find some of the same people....still posting here as much as ever.

Did some of you just defer like I did, or decide not to go to law school?

If you are in law school, how the heck do you have time to post here? 

I am surprised to see some of you still here, instead of hanging with your fellow 1L's.

Personal Statement / If you send someone your PS to read...

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 Applications / "Demonstrated history of poor test taking"
« on: August 04, 2005, 06:18:52 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)
