I cant wait for hillarys new book.  But only because I want to ser how much time she spends going around the country to publicize it.

I bet she shows up in NYC , Chicago, Los Angeles, san Francisco, and that is about it....maybe just NYC and l.a.

I hope she continues to try to stay relevant.....although its hard when you are a half-baked cookie maker.

Maybe Hillary should go on dancing with the stars....that is the go to spot for "washed up" celebrities.

She should not be turning down job opportunities like dancing with the stars....i would tune in to watch her train wreck on national tv.

Law School Admissions / Graduating College Early
« Last post by carol876 on February 25, 2017, 03:44:38 PM »
I am currently a freshman at a top 15 university. I came into school with a large amount of AP credits (35 hours) and am looking to graduate a year early. My current gpa is a 3.85 and it most likely will stay about the same, if not better (i took my most rigorous load this year) and I just took a cold lsat (did not know what would be tested and had no idea about format going in) and received a 165, so I am hoping to get a score in the 170s with some prep. This being said, will it hurt me that I am graduating college early? I plan to go directly from college to law school.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Where to go for undergrad year?
« Last post by Maintain FL 350 on February 23, 2017, 04:27:25 PM »
It doesn't matter, neither school will give you an advantage on the LSAT or in terms of law school admissions. The only time your choice of undergrad matters is if you have the opportunity to attend a truly elite school (think, Harvard). I seriously doubt if any law school would draw a distinction between these two schools.

Go for the cheapest option, no one should be racking up debt for a bachelor's degree.

The fragmentation is within the Democratic Party and "dueling progressive agendas"  and in the Republican Party between civil libertarianism and establishment conservatism.

I essentially agree about the basis of the Democratic split, but I think the Republican split I far more damaging to their overall chances.

The Republican split is at least a three way between establishments (Bush), libertarians (Paul), and religious conservatives (Huckabee, Santorum, etc).

 I would argue that at this point the Republicans are in a real bind, a Catch-22. Candidates can't win the nomination or the general election without the evangelicals stepping up and voting, but they're doomed with independents if they appear too evangelical themselves.

The Republicans have allowed this far right element of the party to wield too much influence for too long, and now it's biting them on the a$$.

Even though I'm a Democrat, I hope they figure it out and find a way to be nationally competitive. I don't want there to be one party rule for the next few decades. Competition is good for political parties, it helps minimize corruption. California is a one party state, and look where it got us.

I think that the fragmentation of the Democratic Party is going to lead to a serious lack of enthusiasm at the polls.  Obama dems, and the national Democratic Party;  establishment dems and Reagan/Bill Clinton dems, and the levels of progressives who support people like e. Warren, b Deblasio and b. Sanders. If someone with a true progressive populist agenda wins the nomination then enthusiasm will be up but I think that if clinton makes it to the primaries and wins the nomination she will face the tsunami horde of the entire right wing of the Republican Party.   Then we will have as we independents like to call the "4 year shot"...it's what the democrats had in 2008 and 2009.   The dems have a strange dynamic this time around with clinton/ reminds me of when the pubs ran bob Dole).  and the pubs have the same dynamic they always have but there are not 2 candidates to watch---there are many candidates to watch.

Choosing the Right Law School / Where to go for undergrad year?
« Last post by T.R on February 22, 2017, 10:12:34 PM »
My main two choices for my undergraduate studies are Chico and La Verne. I want to know which school would benefit me the most in my future law career. I only plan to stay the 4 years and transfer to another graduate school to get my law degree in criminal justice. At Chico I choose the major of Criminal Justice and at La Verne I choose Criminology. I just want to know which school would most benefit me in getting a higher LSAT score and overall education. Thank you for your time!
