The Canadian Ketchup chips are pretty good too.  Why don't they have those in the US?

Oh Canada! / metric system?
« on: August 14, 2004, 02:50:49 PM »
I am thinking of practicing law in Canada, but I fear the metric system.  When I drive down the highway and see 100 km/h signs, I hit the gas to go 100 mph and get pulled over every time.  When I see that gas is 89 cents a "litre," I get excited and start filling up the tank, and then realize something is not right.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Boyd- UNLV?
« on: April 14, 2004, 06:13:55 PM »
I think UNLV is a pretty up and coming school due to the rapid growth of the area and the new facilities.  I've been accepted there and think it would be a good choice, however my main hang up has been with the real estate market. My wife and I are looking to buy a starter home in the area and we are having little luck finding anything decent(900-1000 sq ft,2 bdrm 1 bath home) under 200K.  Supposedly people line up to buy new houses and even bid above the builder's base price.  Another poster mentioned that they are thinking of buying a starter home and going to UNLV, but I question where they will find one and for how much.  Anyone else who has applied there and looking at homes seen this?

Law School Applications / How many lawyers does it take to...?
« on: March 09, 2004, 08:46:10 PM »
I've heard a lot of lawyer jokes already, even though I haven't even started law school yet.  I can't wait to hear more when I actually have a job as an attorney.  When people find out I'm going to law school, I hear either "oh I know such and such, he/she is a lawyer and he hates it" or "oh I know such and such, he/she is a lawyer and is also filthy rich." People ask me what type of law I am going into and I say "I don't know yet." They then proceed to tell me not to be one of those "bad lawyers that represent rapists and murderers in court."  Other pre-law school college students I know yearn to know my LSAT score.  They then tell me how they will study really hard for the test and go to a top 20 school.  I talk to them a few weeks later, and they've decided to get an MBA or a degree in accounting.  So has anyone heard from any law schools yet?

Law School Applications / Re: i cant take this suspense.
« on: March 09, 2004, 01:07:39 AM »
I love opening the mailbox, seeing an envelope placed face down inside, taking it out, and then turning it over to find...a credit card offer.  I say enjoy the suspense while it lasts.  After this short span of four months waiting to hear a reply, it will be back to normal mail mode- dreading the bills and occasionally getting a nice suprise.  That is until you take the bar and the mail suspense will return...

Law School Applications / Re: she "overcame diversity"
« on: March 04, 2004, 01:24:07 AM »
By being a champion of bigotry.  Most schools offer scholarships for racist beliefs and acts of non-tolerance these days.  Just write four paragraphs detailing your ignorance, along with some letters of reccomendation from the local klan wizard.  By the way, I'm just kidding.
