Cinnamon, it's just too easy.

I said a while back that once Sanders officially lost you'd go from "Sanders is poised to win!" to "She'll be indicted!". Sure enough, on cue, you've pivoted to your next BS claims. You have been wrong literally every single time.

It's not going to the convention. Sanders will drop out soon.

Go cry in your popcorn.

After a year of trolling, and being wrong, I take comfort in knowing that CS will continue to troll and be wrong.

Seriously- look at his posting history. He's never been right, and every single time, he doubles down on being wrong. Please, go to a website where everyone doesn't already know what a pathetic loser you are.

You're voting for Trump. It's obvious.

I think stupidity, and dimwittedness, are more obvious in your understanding of politics and Bernie sanders supporters.

Some of us will vote for Jill Stein and many of us will be voting for Bernie sanders.  That is politics.

Neither Clinton nor sanders have enough pledged delegates to be called the nominee for the democrats.  Also, the FBI have to bring Hillary in for questioning.
So, the nominating process will continue to the convention.  Understanding that will bring you closer to Jesus.  And we all know bigots need a little Jesus. A gift for you and your mind to ponder.

With Clinton on the verge of indictment and all polls pointing to a decisive sanders victory over trump and a Clinton loss to trump in the general election makes any vote for Clinton a Win for Donald trump.

Sorry ,maintain we are going to be watching this democratic fracture go all the way to the convention.
General Off-Topic Board / Re: Why do we still have stenographers?

Stenography is likely one of the most identifiable methods of recording the spoken word, as stenographers have been a familiar sight in courtrooms for the better part of the 19th and 20th centuries. Stenography, in short, is the act of recording spoken words through shorthand using a stenotype machine.

Shorthand certainly isnít a new concept, and there have been countless shorthand systems developed. Depending on the language, a shorthand system may rely on symbols, which represent specific sounds, concepts, or letters, or it may rely on letters that have specific meanings. Some shorthand systems are even specially coded for a specific organization or company, thereby keeping sensitive information safe from outsiders.

Whatever stenography system is used, the ultimate goal is to record the spoken word verbatim. Stenography allows court reporters to record proceedings and events much quicker than they would be able to do using a standard keyboard. And, although handwritten stenography has been used for centuries, the use of a stenotype machine allows a court reporter to record information in a less laborious and more accurate manner.

Although todayís court reporters may use a variety of advanced technologies to record written proceedings, stenography still remains the most widely used form, both in and out of the courtroom.

So if it's Trump vs Clinton, who will you vote for?

Hillary is a compromised candidate and Bernie sanders is the only viable solution. I, along with many others are voting for Bernie sanders. 
So, between trump vs joe biden--it will be for Sanders I vote
So, between trump vs gore--it will be Sanders I vote.

I think even a bigot could understand that...get it now, maintain.
Honestly, until you have an actual LSAT score everything is pure speculation. The LSAT is such a huge part of the application that it will totally overshadow stuff like LORs, internships, etc. I don't think you can really assume that you'll score 170 even if you're scoring 165 on practice exams.

That said, if you score 170ish, I would think that you'd have a good shot at many T14 schools. Maybe not HYS, but some others for sure. At this point, just focus on the LSAT.
Choosing the Right Law School / Re: NYU Sticker v Duke$

I'm a current law student and I agree with what the others have said. My 2 cents is that minimizing debt should be a sizable consideration when you have the option to choose between two such high caliber schools. I would add that where you feel comfortable is really important too because the stress of law school is big enough as is. So living in a place you would enjoy for three years is pretty important!
Job Search / 3L Job Search
« Last post by sharka on June 06, 2016, 12:31:17 AM »
Hi guys!

With the advice and help of you wonderful people, I finished my 2L year successfully! Working my summer position in-house and now starting to think about 3L Post Grad job search. Any advice or approach to it? I realize in-house doesn't yield to job offer like summer associate positions would.

Thanks all!

Thanks! So I'm getting my grades slowly and surely, but I'm pretty sure I passed all my classes (B+, A-, CR, CR). I ended up using my C/NC on one of the classes.
