St. Marys / Re: New (Fall 2005) 1Ls
« on: June 20, 2005, 12:58:26 PM »
That's very similar to my undergrad experience. I attended LMU in Los Angeles (also got into UCLA, UCSB, UCSD, etc.)

By the time I graduated, I knew all of my professors on a first name basis and had been to their homes. I knew just about everyone I walked by on campus. I had 3 classes that were just me and a professor (yes, just the two of us.) I had spend three semesters doing independent research with another professor. I had traveled to the Middle-East as my schools representative on an archaeological expedition. I had been a visiting scholar at USC.

All as an undergrad.

I doubt I would have received the same level of attention at any of the State/Larger schools I looked at. (BTW: The professor/priest who I spent three semesters with, eventually performed my marriage ceremony. Friends/Mentors like that don't come along often.)

I hope that I've made the right decision going to St. Mary's. It is, obviously, not ranked well and the bar passage rates (while coming up) are still low. The intangibles it offers are what make it a fine choice for me.

It will be an adventure, either way.

I'm currently (for the next couple weeks) in Austin. I'm moving down to SA starting in July.

The tuition is a concern, as is the ranking, but I feel like it will be a good spot for me.

I've spent the past several years in IT/Infrastructure Security. Therefore, the Center for Terrorism Law seems like a good match for my interests. We'll see...

Also, I'm brining my family (wife, two kids) with me, so San Antonio seemed a better transition than Houston, etc.

Just wondering if there are any other new St. Mary's students lurking on the boards.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Laser printer update...

What about networking your laser printer? Do any of the printers discussed above have network capabilities or is there an adapter you can get? I want to put my printer into a hole somewhere and not think about it except when I get up off the couch to collect printouts.


You can easily network just about any printer with an external device such as: http://shop3.outpost.com/category/Outpost/Networkingtab/Wired+Networking+Hardware/Print+Servers?accipterAreaString=

And yes, I'm leaving an IT job to go to law school...

My current boss hired me after I called him to ask for a LOR (he had been my boss at a previous position.) He still wrote the LOR. After I made my decision, which requires me to move out of city, his response was "No problem, you'll be our San Antonio office. We'll help you move and see if you can work some during school."

I don't know how realistic it is for me to work during 1L, or if I want to be "obligated" to work for them during summers, but it's nice of them to offer.
