Law School Applications / Re: Greek system leadership EC's
« on: March 21, 2005, 06:37:50 AM »
I was the President and a Founding Father of the Kappa Sigma Chapter on our campus, and I left everything out except for one line on my resume. I just didnt see how it really made me appear to be any better of a potential lawyer to AdComms than before. (Aside from all the leadership aspects involved with being the president of any organization.)

I actually drove down to LA today and dropped by Loyola just to have a second look around.  I have to admit the campus was a lot nicer than I had remember and there were a lot of nice places to hang out and study.  However I also drove around the neighborhood and it is pretty bad.  Not you're going to be gun down bad, but just unpleasant and I sure as hell wouldn't go walking around there at night or park my car outside.  As far as I could tell there really wasn't anything like a nice coffeeshop or even a mcdonald's within walking distance (I could be wrong though) which is a real downside.  What I'm sort of worried about with Loyola is that between commuting (either driving or metro both have major downsides), the safety issues (especially if you needed to stay late) and just the lack of convience it could all get pretty stressful and law school is already stressful enough.  There's still a pretty good chance I'll go there, but just a lot to consider.

Dont worry about it. Just start packing heat and doing coke yourself. You'll be fine!

Yeah I heard that coke is great for when you've been up for two days straight studying, really takes the edge off and great for losing weight too.

I think you've got it backwards. Its the coke that allows people to stay up for two days straight studying. But I've heard it is great for losing weight too though.

I was warming up to the idea of UoP initially, but I think this thread and everything else I've heard about the school recently has really put me over the top. I just hope I get in now! I met their Director of Admissions (Adam Barrett) at a Graduate School Fair here on the UCSB campus a few months ago. I was really impressed with what he had to say, the awesome guide-book-catalog thing he gave me (which was the best one I've seen), the general presentation of the campus/university and the "upward trend" feel that McGeorge has. I'm definitely going to make a drive up to the campus over Spring Break now.

Imagine if Loyola was on the main LMU campus...

The LMU girls, the view of the WHOLE westside panorama, easy access to Hermosa bars, a block from the only Home Depot in the area, the best college gym west of the Mississippi, LMU girls...drool

on a clear day you could almost see the ucla law school...drool :o

seriously though, where better to go to school than playa del rey. oh my god. downtown is poo. good thing my apartment is in west la

oh! which reminds me- if i decide to go to loyola, or get into usc/ucla i have an AWESOME 2 bedroom house w/ lawn (huge bathroom and kitchen) that is only $1025 a month TOTAL! i will need a roommate!

Thats an awesome deal! I pay $675 a month for my own room in an Apartment here in Santa Barbara. If I get into Loyola or Southwestern, I might take you up on the offer too!

So basically if I want to get into sports law- I will have to start my own business after law school My dream job is to work for a pro hockey team. I am looking at getting a dual MBA/JD in sports law from Marquette or Tulane-- What does anyone think?

I just emailed you regarding this. Please give me your AOL IM so we can talk.

futurejd20: I'm extremely interested as to what you have to say about this as well, since I am in the exact same boat. (I'd like to work for a Pro Baseball team though). Whats your take on the MBA/JD combo? Also, any ideas as to how to break into the field, etc?
