Choosing the Right Law School / Re: MSU vs Wayne State
« on: May 23, 2005, 07:48:39 AM »
Wayne is a great school. I would love to live cheap in Detroit. There are some nice, nice lofts in the city in okay areas for real cheap. Do you know how much tang you could pull in those? haha jk, but seriously Id have no problem living in the city. Not like it is Rio or something. Just get your CCW, a 9mm or a 45, and you are set.

Sidenote: Im serious about the CCW (Concealed Weapons permit). I will be taking the class this fall and walking into lecture strapped.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: $750 off dell laptops expires today

I did this a month ago for 750 less 1500. Got free shipping too. The 700m is amazing so far.

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.

I just read the broker and really enjoyed it. The book was pretty average, but I love books that take place in other countries and give a good feel for the foreign environment.

General Off-Topic Board / Re: best hangover cure?
« on: May 16, 2005, 07:36:13 AM »
the best hangover cure is definitely this routine (if you can devote a half day to it)

1) Wake up early (like 8-10)
2) Stay up and suffer for a couple of hours
3) While suffering eat something good like a nice sandwich or something. Then drink lots of water or gatorade. Take a Centrum, Vitamin C, and 1000mg Tylenol.
4) (MOST IMPORTANT STEP) Go back to bed for 3-5 hours.

When you wake back up, you will feel like a million bucks. I always do this and it never fails me.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Ave Maria Standard of Living?
« on: May 08, 2005, 09:46:23 PM »
i just graduated form Umich. Ann Arbor is a great city, but housing is really expensive. The campus isnt that close to downtown ann arbor so there should be cheap housing around Ave Maria. It is when you near U of M and downtown ann arbor that you will find yourself paying 500 for a small room in a terrible house.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Starting with a 138
« on: May 04, 2005, 08:56:25 PM »
those of you saying that the situation is hopeless are the same people that probably would say the same to someone who starts studying for a final exam the night before. If it is possible to get a B on a final after an all nighter, Id say it is possible to jump 20 points in a month.

As we all know that initial jump is easy to acheive. He may need only one month to get from a 138 to a 155 which is great for him. That next 2-5 points could take months, but who wants to spend that much time worrying about a damn test? I sure don't. Ill take my 160 after a month of studying and never look back.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Top 10 Party Law Schools

Plus Louisiana women are absolutely top of the line.  Anyone who has been there can attest to that.

The accent makes me melt.

Not to mention Ann Arbor is an amazing town. Ive been gone 3 days and I already miss it. Undergrad was kind of a female dog though compared to the experiences of friends at other similar schools.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Legitimate Cooley question
« on: April 25, 2005, 02:00:59 AM »
The only people I have ever heard bash Cooley are students applying to law school or people in other law schools. I'm sure there are tons of attorneys out there that hate on it to, but of all the ones I have talked to, they all say mostly good things about it. Sounds like a great fit for you.
