Lately I have been having scary heart irregularities so I went to a cardiologist on Friday and he did a bunch of tests. Nothing too serious came up, but I did have some slight arythmias that he needs to monitor.


I have to wear a heart monitor on my belt that is hooked up to my chest and when my heart does something weird, it goes off and makes a very noticible sound somewhat like a fax machine. It will be loud enough to distract the entire area that I am testing in and last s for about a minute. Then when this happens, I have to get to a phone and call in the data so it can be looked at and then forwarded to the doctor.

Do you think that I will be able to take the test? I doubt they would allow me to take the test alone in a room with a single proctor and that is what is worrying me. If worst comes to worst, Ill just go to the bathroom and take the whole thing off, but I would like to avoid that.

Someone was telling me that if you have a law degree from ANY law school and can look someone in the eye, then you can get a good government job VERY EASILY. He was telling me that many of his friends from law school are all now making 60,000-70,000 a year, with 40 hour work weeks, and the insane government benefits. This sounds pretty damn nice if you ask me. Do most people get turned off by the idea of working for the government? I know this is a very vague job descrition, but as far as stress and quality of life goes, Im not sure if these jobs can be topped.

Choosing the Right Law School / My interesting situation
« on: April 25, 2005, 12:43:06 AM »
I have planned on attending law school since my Freshmen year in college. However, I always wanted to work for a few years prior to that. To make a long story short, I changed my mind about this in March and started getting everything together. I found that some schools would accept a June lsat for fall 05 admission so I applied to Detroit Mercy, Toledo, Dayton, Cooley, and Florida Coastal.

First I would like to know of any stories you have ever heard about people doing this. I have a hard time believing a school would give me a slot when they have kids waiting that applied in October and obviously were more prepared than me.

My Lsat score will be anywhere from a 155-163. My practices have been ERATIC, but progressing nicely. That coupled with my 2.8 from Michigan is how I arrived at this plan:

If I get a 159 or higher, I will hold off and apply to better schools in the fall like a normal person. Then I will take a year off and it will be worth it.

If my score is on the lower end and I get admitted to one of those schools, I will probably attend in the fall and plan on staying for three years. I guess I would entertain the option of transfering, but I feel like if I decide to go it should be a decision based off of being there for 3 years.

Any input?

Law School Admissions / Can I study abroad in law school?

One thing I missed out on in undergrad was going abroad internationally. Do any law schools provide opportunities for travel? It would definitely factor into my eventual school choice.
