I moved close to Philly at the beginning of may, just so I'd be completely settled in (well, that and that gaurantee of being in the complex I liked best). I wanted to be totally comfortable before the stress set in.

Laura Prepon... so much hotter before the bleach job!  :'(

I don't know about y'all but I'm of the firm belief that flip-flops go with everything!

Hell yes. I don't wear sneakers from April-October (I live in NJ, so the feet get a little cold before/after that)

Not stupid at all! We all thought it was great when someone asked it on the Students and grads board. Here's a link:,2237.0.html

Basically, wear what you want.

Are there any subjects you already know you dislike/don't understand?

I'm currently reading the Torts E&E because I've already taken two torts class and found them boring and confusing at the same time. I figure any heads up I can get will help.

Which really, if you think about it, if you have been out of school for ANY amount of time, then what does your Undergrad GPA tell you about your ability to perform in law school, anyways!?

And that, my friend, is the reason that LSAT's count more ;)

The only people that get screwed badly are the people at schools where the scale is a, a-, b+,b,b-, exc.....

Yeah, that was my school...  :'(


Plus, they go over this with you before you take the bar.

And that is exactly why it doesn't pay to lie about it. If you don't think you qualify, you don't. It's not worth the risk to get into a higher school when it may end up barring you from practice altogether!

I have been thinking about this subject. What would stop someone from claiming to be hispanic for instance. In my case for example, I am Italian but could easily pass for hispanic. Also My grandfathers mother was spanish or something like it???. I am not going to do this but what would stop someone from doing something like this. From what I have seen if I was hispanic my numbers would get me in about anywhere.

That, my fried, is a good question. The distinction "hispanic" is a very, VERY fluid concept. Some people take it to mean only latin/south american in descent. Some people take it as any spanish decendant. Some people take as where you were raised. Some take it as how you look. My husband is an italian who is frequently mistaken for Mexican due to his coloring. He used to work in the dairy department of the grocery store and people would ask the manager if he spoke any english instead of just talking to him to find out. Many of his friends even though he was hispanic before they got to know him. In that sense, he's been sharing some of the same prejudice as someone who is actually hispanic, by any definition. But is that how they define it? One would assume not. But then how should they? This is the eternal question.
