Ave Maria is a Good School
« on: September 26, 2005, 03:20:47 PM »
I am a 5th year student at my undergrad institution and I have decided to goto Ave Maria for my legal education.  For few days I have been asking around LSD for recommendations, informations, and opinions.  Sadly, I got none.  Furthermore, I got anti-ave maria propagandas, ill-informed information, and extreme opinions.  People on LSD were more likely to point out the fact that Ave Maria sucks  than to apprise me with relevant information.  I have worked at couple of lawfirms and I am recognizing few common widely spread myths roaming around LSD.  I am going to spell them out and try to state why they are wrong.

1) LSAT dictates your success in Lawschool.
=nope, this is myth.  Lsat is a good indicator but does not do anything.  A higher lsat doesn't mean a smarter person.  It doesn't even mean that you will be more likely to suceed in lawschool.  It just means that its easier for you to get in to lawschool.

2) What lawschool you went to dictates success.
=nope, this is another common myth on LSD.  Look, most of you haven't worked at a lawfirm for two years (like me).  You don't know whats up.  Ave Maria grads laugh at Harvard grads for being a moron.  Its about your lawyering skills not about the prestige of the school you went to.  I am not saying Ave Maria is better than Harvard.  I am saying that it doesn't matter as much as some of you make it sound to be.  GO work at a real firm and then tell me that I am wrong.  You can't

3) Ave Maria is not a good school.
=I wouldn't know this because I don't know that much about ave maria.  I heard that it is good.  This might be hearsay but the people I talk to for the most part were successful people.  Ave Maria is the power house in Ann Arbor area.  University of Michigan is the other power house.  Also, calling other schools a 4th tier toilet is ridiculous.  How can you call a school a toilet.  I mean, thats sucks.

You are ridiculous. Let's face it, if you could get into the University of Michigan you would go.

Ave Maria grads laugh at Harvard grads? Wow, maybe my mom was right.. people laugh off what hurts. If I was forced to go to Ave Maria I would cry, or quit dreaming about the legal profession.

Working at a law firm is different than being a lawyer. There are only 2 schools in Ann Arbor. To call them both powerhouses is idiotic. Michigan is THE best law school in Ann Arbor and in Michigan as a whole.

Look, if Ave Maria is everything you are looking for in a law school and more, good for you! I'm happy for you. But you are never going to convince anyone on here that it is more than 4th tier (in fact, its not even in the 4th tier, its not even ranked!) toilet. It's just something youll have to deal with.

I am assuming that you haven't taken the LSAT.  But you sure are barking loud.

Look, I wouldn't goto Universit of Michigan for two reasons.  First, I heard that the staff members are over-rated.  They are not the leading scholars.  #2, I heard it will go down in ranks.

If you are gonna be a lawyer at least learn how to argue.  Your arguments are crap.  Just a simple child trying to make daddy happy. 

"MY DAD IS A TOP GUN AT HIS LAW FIRM~!"  Whatevers.  You don't impress me.

Also, Ave Maria is not a toilet.  Its comparable to University of Michigan in few aspects.  ABA-approved, a good staff body, good student body, and they both produce good lawyers.  Ave Maria IS a power house in Ann Arbor.  It competes it Michigan in the state of Michigan.  Dude, have you been to any firms in Michigan?  I mean, stop making stuff up.

I took the LSAT and scored in the 96th percentile! Aside from that, Michigan has been a top 10 school decades I believe. Over-rated professors? Yeah, okay.

Besides, I have no desire to work in Michigan.

I spoke with the hiring consultant at a top San Fran firm (where I want to work), and out of Stanford, Berkeley, and Michigan, she urged me to go to Michigan, saying that they have so many apps from Stanford and Berkeley, that Michigan would really stand out. Suck it.

Dude stop lying.  You didn't do all that.  Whatevers.  Even if you did, that just goes on to prove my point that Lawschool doesn't matter.  People like you that can't argue could goto harvard and be way stupider than any Ave Maria graduates.

This is your final warning, stop dissing ave maria.  This is childish.

Yes, you've seen many apologies from me in the past. I know I've acted up and been a real dildo for awhile. I feel I should probably give you a little insight into my life and perhaps you'll understand my behavior. You see, I was born with both male and female sex organs. Some might call me a hermaphrodite. Now before you start thinking that sounds like a lot of fun, let me tell you, it isn't a cakewalk. For one thing, I'm uglier than sin and rarely leave my mother's basement. She tried to sell me to the carnival when I was quite young, but they returned me after a week. The mixed-up hormones send me into many fits of rage, including moments when I believe I am Mario from Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers video games.

I've never actually taken the LSAT. I don't really know what it is, other than a test of some sort. The last test I took was one to see if my very small and shriveled penis could be surgically removed and turned into a hat. It did not work.

I hope you can understand my plight; please pardon all of my previous transgressions. I am now going to go back to my dwarf porn.

Dear Lane:

Why can't you show me some sincerity.  I never harmed you in anyway.  All I did was ask you some questions and this is what you do to me?  Jeez, grow up man.
