Hey Maintain,

I told you that I will be voting for Bernie Sanders along with many Bernie supporters in November-- no matter what because to us supporting Hillary is a vote for Donald trump since she is being investigated by the cops.

Try to answer honestly, will you support Bernie sanders if Hillary has to drop out?????
I bet you can't answer the question.

Also, do you mean conspiracy theories like this one:

The investigation should go forward,” Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein told the Observer. “This is sort of typical Hillary Clinton; to do things that are not legal, to say that they are, and then try to cover them up. Hillary Clinton severely chastised other whistleblowers for using Internet channels that were not secure and yet she herself was doing that with private, high level state department information.”

A periodical

Ok, I'll play.

Yes, if HRC drops out and Sanders is the nominee I will vote for Sanders. Why? Because although I disagree with both Clinton and Sanders on many issues, I am capable of recognizing that they are both infinitely better options than Trump.

See Cinnamon? This is what big kids do. They make big kid decisions. They recognize the reality of the situation and make the best choice possible under the circumstances.

The fact that you would write-in for Sanders because you can't draw a distinction between Clinton (who you don't like) and Trump (who you should be scared of) says a lot about your ability to reason. Your decision is clearly driven by emotion, not logic.

BTW, the meeting between Sanders and Clinton the other day was essentially him dropping out.

Good. I thought you ONLY liked Clinton....which you do-but u are cerebral enough to realize that she may have to drop out because of an indictment.

I will not vote for trump--not scared at all because he is anti-Republican party--anti establishment--that is enough to mess them up for a while.

Now Bernie WILL get my vote because i vote on principle and agenda--Bernie is also anti- establishment.

Clinton could go to jail--and has a sordid history--she would never ever get my vote.......and heavy establishment figure--3 strikes, the biggest one being the police investigating her----

Fun to watch!!!

So, many of us Bernie supporters don't want democratic unity--

We want change-- Bernie brings that...

And many of us will vote for jill stein...also, anti establishment.

...and I would add that it's, well, amusing that someone keeps finding the same topic "popcorn worthy" in this election (remember- he had the popcorn ready for the Benghazi hearing), while ignoring a pretty amazing election that includes, inter alia-

1. A party's prior nominee in open warfare against their current nominee. Seriously, how amazing is the Romney/Trump split (putting Utah ... UTAH!!!! in play).

2. A sitting GOP senator saying that the GOP nominee is too bigoted and racist to be President (??? that's from Kirk, today).

3. The first-ever female presidential nominee from one of the big-two parties.

4. Having both candidates have unfavorable ratings that have never been recorded (seriously- Clinton would have serious difficulties, but for Trump).

5. The continuing and open question as to whether the GOP will revolt prior to, or during, Cleveland.

6. The open question as to whether events (the economy-Brexit, a terror attack, etc.) could substantially upset the race and ... we could actually have a President Trump.

BTW, the meeting between Sanders and Clinton the other day was essentially him dropping out.

As opposed to Clinton having a lead of 400 pledged delegates (that's without counting the 530 "super"delegate lead).
As opposed to the Sanders/Obama meeting, wherein Sanders exited saying that he'd help fight Trump, and Obama exited saying, "I'm with Hillary."
As opposed to the very few Democratic backers of Sanders now saying they are supporting Clinton?
As opposed to Sanders laying off more than half of his campaign staff?
As opposed to Clinton now running general election ads, and Sanders ... not?

But, sure, I guess we can look to what Jill Stein is saying.

This is why you can't engage with Cinnamon Troll. Normal people make rational observations based on facts, and then change them as the facts change. For example, I thought it was highly unlikely that Trump would win the GOP nomination, because I thought the GOP would unite against him. I began to change this opinion after South Carolina. As facts change, my opinion changes. It's called wearing big boy pants.

Others ... well, I am quite sure that if Clinton prevails in November, Cinnamon Troll will still be posting that he's hanging out in his underoos with popcorn ... just waiting for some shoe to drop because Nixon, or something.

Everything Loki said, with an emphasis on 2 and 4.

Here's the thing: the LSAT is such a huge factor in law school admissions that until you have an actual score (or at least a series of consistent practice scores) everything is speculation. GPA and LSAT determine just about everything. LORs, grade trends, etc are of minimal importance.

For now, focus on improving your score as much as possible. With a prep course or some kind of structured study regimen you can almost surely gain a few points. Even raising your score 3-5 points will give you many more options.

Lastly, research the state bar admission rules of the state in which you intend to practice. A misdemeanor, depending on the circumstances, could give you trouble beyond just law school admission.

Law School Admissions / Re: What's the highest ranked school I can get into

2.95 gpa. 146 credits. 3.3 for last two years. I have psi chi honors. LSAT practice was 149. The actual thing maybe just that. Degree in psychology and paralegal studies. I have a misdemeanor. I have been expelled from one university. I have an impressive personal statement. I have two LORs. Also is there a chance I could get a full scholarship at Charlotte law? Or Cooley?

Let's break this down into separate components-

1. How much weight should you give your personal statement and letters of recommendation? Almost none. Really. Your admissions chances will be almost entirely based on your uGPA (undergrad GPA) + LSAT score. To determine how likely you are to get admission to various schools, look at lawschooltransparency ("LST") and lawschoolnumbers ("LSN"). LST will give you percentiles for admitted students. LSN will give you some numbers from students who were admitted/rejected (anecdotal information).

2. The misdemeanor and expulsion will be red flags. Depending on the misdemeanor, reason for expulsion, and jurisdiction of the school, these may be reasons to automatically deny you. But not necessarily- and you should look carefully at the admissions policies of both the school, and the Bar (Florida, for example, tends to be much more restrictive on these types of issues). Regardless, please make sure you have a rationale for these, which includes taking responsibility.

3. I, personally, would not recommend going to either Charlotte or Cooley. Look at the numbers at LSN for those schools. In addition, if you do get a scholarship, please make sure you look at the conditions- many schools in the tier you are looking are notorious for offering scholarships that seem reasonable (maintain a 3.0) without telling you that they set the class rank well below the number required to maintain the scholarship.

4. My best advice? Work on improving that LSAT. I am of the belief that, for many people, you cannot achieve giant improvements in your LSAT (I don't think you're going to score a 165). But your chances will improve immensely, both for admissions, and for a scholarship, with every single point you get on the LSAT.

President Nixon responded by refusing to release the tapes, claiming that his conversations were private and hence protected from forced disclosure by the doctrine of executive privilege-a concept which permits officers of the executive branch to maintain a level of privacy to promote open and vigorous debate. In his refusal, Nixon stated unequivocally that the tapes were “entirely consistent with what I have stated to be the truth.”

This confrontation set the stage for the United States v. Nixon, in which the Court ruled unanimously that President Nixon must turn over the tapes
which has jack to do with Hillary.................tell the truth, you are a 1L who is dead center in class rankings ain't ya there boy??

Nixon was elected to a second term but the FBI was investigating him and he tried to lie about it and cover it up just like hillary-- we see what happened to him.

The same thing is out in the open for her and she didn't want to give up her private conversations either--

What most folks dont get is that the FBI got a Republican--- they are career policemen and not politicians--what makes people think that the fbi wont take down a high profile Democrat???

If they don't prosecute her because she has clout and let the crime go there will be serious ramifications.

And I am not a 1l-- very funny though-graduated mcl.

You're kidding, right? Cinnamon Troll is some old guy who has probably been banned from numerous newspaper comment sections, and is too dumb to be allowed to comment on youtube and espn. 

Source- a periodical.

Lol---has Bernie sanders conceded the race to Hillary yet?

No? Ok, just checking.

In not the only one who is sure about Clintons legal problems...lolololol

I might as well be jill stein--we are talking about the same criminal investigation after all.

Hey, poodleboy--I think you are young, naive and misguided--that's all.

Hey Cinnamon, remember when you said Sanders was "poised to win California"? That was funny.

The Bernie supporters (and I actually like Sanders more than HRC on a personal level, believe it or not) seem to ignore the fact that HRC got almost 4 million more votes than Sanders. Even if there were no such thing as super delegates, she'd win. The Sanders supporters and Trump supporters do have one thing in common: they are both prone to BS conspiracy theories. It's not rigged, there is no suppression, she simply got more votes because she's mainstream and Sanders is fringe.

At this point, the cake is baked. Sanders looks like a grumpy sore loser and his crowd sounds like a bunch of whiny children. He ran, he lost. Get over it.
