General Board / Re: Will I be trapped?

i totally agree w/afterdark. there are tons of hoops to jump thru if you didn't go to an ABA school and if you're even remotely thinking about leaving AL after a while, i'd reconsider my options. for example, let's say that your numbers (i wish i had your GPA btw! :) ) got you in at cooley, john marshall, mercer, and we'll say whittier just to put you out on the west coast.

i'm thinking w/your stats, you could probably get into any one of these schools, do well your first year, and then if you were wanting to, transfer into a 'better' school that could at least get you in the door of a regional firm (if that's what you'd ultimately want to do, of course). this way the only hoops you have to jump thru are the ones to transfer if you wanted to. :)

hope that helps! :)

no offense to your obviously traumatizing situation? but being a science major and all garners the same kind of 'you have to be on the ball' attitude from the teachers...and they don't sound as 'nice' as your ls prof did. so i'm sorry to say that i can't send the sympathies your way. if you think about it, if it wasn't for us science majors (bio, chem, phys, engineering) 'suffering' as well? we wouldn't have a lotta the things we have today. so although i know and understand and beyond appreciate what happened to you (trust me!), look at it this way...at least you don't go thru this every day in class! :)

and if you've ever taken organic chem or organometallics? i'd be willing to bet that your class is somewhat easier. lol ;)

yay! a student there!! ;D ;D

well, here goes, lawgirl! ;D what's the school environment like? is it friendly? are the students okay? is it ultra competitive there? how accessible are the profs REALLY? how have you gotten by financially there? do you interact w/students from DCL at all by chance (they're in the same city, correct)? what's lansing really like? is it a lively place? a dull place? what kind of teaching style do most of the profs use? do many students transfer? do many transfer in? what do students feel is the best thing about cooley? why did you decide to go there?

sorry there are so many questions, but i might be applying there after i take my lsat in june so i'm trying to gather as much info as i can. i'm in az and it's quite hard to jump a flight there. lol

thanks so much!! ;D

so then i can gather that what drew you ther was the scholarship offer and environmental factors and the 'speed' of the program? do they have the kind of 'tracks' you'd like to go down? i'm just trying to get a better idea, lynette. thanks so much! :)

hi solver...

this is so cool of you to do to try and stop the likes of 'right winger' and 'george bush, jr.' (correct?). i wish this was all it took though and that this person (who i believe to be one in the same) didn't have the right to spew his/her nonsense across this board that's supposed to be helping others. i'm not sure how you've felt about me going up against them, but i've been brought up w/the convention that if the problem's never 'addressed', then it either won't get better nor be eradicated. maybe that's my harsh midwestern upbringing, lol, but knowledge will hopefully triumph over ignorance in the end of all things.

once again, thanks for trying. much continued success to you in your pursuit of law school! :)

Are you seriously telling me this is the best you have? especially to the degree that you have to go into the past to derive some kind of 'strength?' That doesn't lead me to think that you're such a 'presence' to even remotely be a glimmer in my hippocampal memory...if you even know what I'm talking about.

As for my mother? All I can say is that I'm sure if your mother read what you just wrote, unless she's affiliated w/the Klan or some other bigoted group, I would think that she'd be appalled at what you've been saying, just like others on here. It's one thing to go after a person, but it's another to go after their family. I'm sure if I said something defaming, degrading, or just downright untrue about your mother, you'd be up in arms by now and spitting out more nonsense knee-jerk responses than you have already.

As for this whole job situation which for some reason you keep pointing to? Give me a break. This kind of thinking gives rise to the fact that you are one of the many people who doesn't know the ethnic makeup of their own country. Look up some actual stats on the US's population and then get back to me.

And with that whole 'don't start getting cocky' bit? Observationally speaking, I think you're doing just fine and more than enough for everybody and then some. Blatant arrogance is quite ugly and annoying, isn't it?

Another aside? My people came from Portugal, France and Ireland aside from wherever in Africa. Attitudinally? I think it's quote-end-quote your people who have the attitude. Not insomuch as a bad one, mind you, but I don't remember hearing in ANY history books of any meetings taking place between LBJ and any black person or people forcing him to implement Affirmative Action. I undoubtedly don't remember seeing any minority person saying to any employer 'these are the numbers we've decided you have to attain to make sure we and future generations have a job'. It's those of "your" kind that you should be taking your beef up with, in all honesty. They're the ones who started and implemented these things out of their own consciousness...not mine.

It's interesting to see how much of a 'threat' I'm even seeming to be to you in this thread. Just an observation.
