Ohio State U / Re: Well Rounded Law School

4) The town's obsession with the Buckeyes would get very annoying, real quick.  Case in point, I saw a huge billboard supporting their athletic director.  After all the scandals they've had that seemed odd to me that the university would publicly support him, and even stranger that they would rent out a billboard to make this point so brazenly, as if they needed to convince themselves and run a PR campaign on the whole town so that everyone's reality doesn't crumble.


That's nothing! Have you not noticed public (state-funded) universities serving as mouthpieces for private companies, putting up their ads on their buildings?! Such universities and colleges are not by tradition or designation open for public communication, but are used for business, education or other devoted purposes. The State reserves such non-public property for its intended purpose; they are considered non-public forums and include courthouses, jails, government offices, city halls and public schools. While State property that is a non-public forum is required to be open for its devoted purposes, it is not required to be open to the public for other expressive purposes.

Remember that we're not talking here about a walkway from public street or sidewalk leading up to University building -- some open public forum sidewalk not so delineated as to put speaker on notice that s/he has entered some special enclave where speech is not protected -- a case that would be a "grey area" in this field of law -- we're talking the actual buildings of such universities.


An interesting take on the issue indeed!

Wow, interesting username, ad astra, what does it mean?


to the stars on the wings of a pig.  it has something to do with Steinbeck.  It might be in the Grapes of Wrath.


A lumbering soul but trying to fly.


Intriguing username, one shoe - what's the story behind it?

General Board / Re: Presidential Hopeful ...

"No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States."

Art. II, Sec. 1, Paragraph 4, Qualifications for President.


The "age of thirty-five years" requirement is ridiculous!


The first two clauses are no joke either! :)

Can anyone suggest a good resource for preparing for the games section?  I have McGraw - Hill's conquering LSAT Logic Games by curvebreakers.  If there is a better one, I would love to have it.

Thanks

Law School Applications / DO I SAIL THE ROUGH SEAS ALONE
« on: November 14, 2005, 10:35:08 PM »
I'm basically looking to see if there are others out there, I'm sure there are its just a matter of finding them, in a similar situation as myself:  Graduating next month after taking like 6 classes, scheduled to take the December LSAT while not feeling all that ready for it, and havent immersed in the LS school application process yet, and really want to attend a T14.  I guess I'm wondering how many out there are behind 8 ball in the application process?  Its always nice to know that you're not alone, and if you find yourself in this situation, I would love to hear back from you.  I feel as though my walls are caving in at the moment.  Thanks and much love.
