No, those of us on this side of the board have received our decisions a long time ago.  Post this on the kiddie board.

I just dreamt that all my teeth fell out.  What the hell is that supposed to mean?  I'm guessing that it means the Crab People are staging an attack.

Sadly you're correct. After Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was cancelled, the Crab people were forced to retreat back to the bowels of the Earth. However, they have been plotting thier revenge for some time now. They infiltrated American Idol, quietly took over the show, and replaced the 3 hosts with thier dopplegangers.

Now with the renewed success of American Idol, the Crab people have decided that now is the time to strike. Your dreams are simply a harbinger of this imminent attack. Lucky for us you have posted these dreams this lawschooldiscussion board. Now our duty becomes one to seek out and destroy the crab people before it is too late.

To Hollywood!!! Destroy American Idol!!!


haha, I felt it was my duty as an American to warn others on the lawschooldiscussion board before the public found out.



[UPDATE] -   I've sought the wisdom of an online expert and the search has produced the following extremely logical conclusion:

"Other Perspectives

A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicate that you are putting your faith, trust, and beliefs in what man thinks rather than in the word of God. The bible says that God speaks once, yea twice in a dream or a vision in order to hide pride from us, to keep us back from the pit, to open our ears (spiritually) and to instruct and correct us."



- Man, I was WAY off!  Curse you "way of man!"

If you are going to read the pre-law prep books, read the section on how to not be hated by your fellow students -- don't argue with a professor just to prove you are right, do not hijack discussions in class, etc.










this is so true

I wish I would have known windows backgammon was so damned addicting before comming to law school.  Although it made for a great way to get through property.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Stop Hiding behind your ABA school...
« on: February 23, 2007, 09:25:52 AM »
I am actually curious. I don't know anything about these DL schools. So I went to a couple of their websites (Concord, Taft & Abraham Lincoln popped up on Google first). I must admit that I was shocked to see that the tuition was so high. Concord is almost $9k per year ($36k for all 4yrs). Abraham Lincoln is $6,750. Taft was more reasonable at $5,400 per year. Still, at the low end, you are shelling out $21k for the four years.

I'm sure this is due to my own myopic view of schooling, but what exactly does that get you? You don't have a law library. You don't have law journals or a moot court team. You don't have clubs or interest groups or special guest speakers. Or do you? I assume you have classes of some sort? Are you able to ask questions or is it just a lecture? Do they use the Socratic method? Do you chat with the professor and other students? How does it work? I mean, why not just go out and buy a dozen casebooks, read them from cover to cover and take the Baby Bar and the Bar on your own? Does a J.D. after your name from one of these schools really carry enough weight to justify spending $20k on it?


My understanding is that while you may come out of these schools with little or no understanding of the law, you are well rested because of DL schools' emphasis on "nap time" and are one hell of a finger painter.

Transferring / Re: Chances of transferring - T4 currently top 30%
« on: February 22, 2007, 10:53:28 PM »

I am in the top 10% in 2 of my classes including LRW. 





uhh,  who wants to break the news that "top 10% in a class" isn't a stat??

General Board / Re: Who here f#$#@#g! hates law school right now
« on: February 21, 2007, 02:13:41 PM »
I'm at a tier 2, and I can say at times its stressful, but I dont hate it. HOWEVER,  I have begun to depise 90% of my classmates, but that's really just because I'm around them constantly and their voices/mannerisms have begun to get to me. haha.

I'd say just push on, everyone has a day like this regardless of what they do


Is anyone else out there in a situation like me where 90% of their classmates are genuinely good people who will help you out when you need that help?  I find that a huge group of my old 1L section still attends entire section parties and we all generally get along.  Is this an anamoly?

show me on the doll where your uncle Jeb touched you

- p.s. To the OP, once you get on this side of the board... no one really cares where you got accepted/accepted with $$/etc.

General Board / Re: will i go to hell if i don't try out for a journal?
« on: February 20, 2007, 11:59:02 AM »
Here's some bull: my school's law review just changed the requirements for next year's write-on so that you're required to enter the writing competition even if you will grade on to the journal. They're just waiting to reelease the names of the grade-ons until the write-on competition is over and you've tried to write on. Since I am just on the edge of grading on, this is CRAP!


Writing on builds character.
