Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Taking the plunge!

I notice that she also altered her username into gibberish.
Pretty much what you'd expect from her based on what it had said.

Maybe she realized how risky and crazy it sounded after she typed it out and actually read it.  Cashing in 401Ks at 39 to go to law school?  Not strong decision-making IMO.

why'd you erase your own post though? Are you that embaressed by your life? ???

ok........ I'm still the real law student and not the weirdo who erased her own posting. Thanks for catching my speedtyped typo's I guess.....

Forgive me for correcting your spelling:  husband, doesn't, trailer, opposite, and elitism

my whole young adult life

There is no such thing.

Anyone who says that they passed the first year bar exam with Novus is a liar. Yes CA has online lawschools, but that dosn't permit any random person to open an online "lawschool" and do it. They have to be licensed the right way. Novus is not. Even their own site makes that clear.


I didn't start this thread to engage in political discourse, though.   It was to ask for career advice.  I won't answer any more questions about my political or social beliefs.

Ok, but you shot down the options given to you by others for said beliefs. Factor that in I guess. I wouldn't expect much more career advice than you've been give thus far. For someone who was lucky to even graduate, you sure seem self rightous there guy.  :-X

You consider $2k "outrageous" to become an american? ???

I don't think anyone should be allowed to move here unless they either
1) Are married/adopted by an american
2) Serve in the military for at least 4 years(less if combat related injury)
3) Have a degree in a field that we have a SHORTAGE of workers of in the nation. I don't mind someone coming in with a PHD in advanced neural science, but another minimum wage worker cloggin the already full system? How does that help america?

Would you let a random person live in your house for free and pay them to do it?(welfare)
Then would should the USA?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: February 2011 LSAT score

Gotta think positive man.
Maybe your theory is right, EXCEPT for the fat wheezy kid in back of class who eates paste and cuts himself, who somehow got accepted to take the lsat despite having a 1.2 GPA and being in the  process of being academicly dismissed. Maybe he only showed up because his Mom kicked him out of the van screaming "I PAID FOR IT, GO TAKE IT!!!!!!!!!!" and his answer for half the questions was a drool(or other bodily fluids as the test progressed) stain.

In that world, you'd be the #1 highest lsat score in the percentiles! :o You'd be king! 8)

lol  Maybe everyone but me had their score canceled. Maybe I should have.   :P

your theory sounds valid minus the fact that Novus is NOT allowed to sit ANY state bar.

I read that while the Department of Justice reviews the qualifications of applicants to be appointed as federal judges, each federal court unit and each judge has the power to hire his/her own staff.  So, unless a Novus law school graduate wants to be a federal judge,  that graduate, depending on how extensive his/her knowledge of the law is and depending on who he/she knows, it does appear that the Novus law school graduate does have a chance to work somewhere in the federal court system.

As you all well know, reputation is everything in the legal community.  If a Novus law school graduate (or any law school graduate) has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the law and has passed the California bar exam, he/she probably has a chance.

However, I'm not an attorney myself yet either.  But, this time,  I am working hard to know everything (about as many areas of the law as possible).

as a very wise man once said "don't argue with retards" Enjoy you life fluffy. :-X


2 plus 2 equals 4. You might be simple enough to need to put two apples in a hat and add two more to see it, most don't.

2 plus 2 always equals 4, whereas not every plausible explanation is a correct explanation.  You offered a plausible explanation as to why people would say don't go to law school, and an assumption is needed if you're going to accept that explanation as correct.

Don't worry, I'm not trying to convince you of anything.  I'm just pointing out the errors in your logic for anyone who might read your posts and get the wrong idea.

If your husbad just started his degree, how will he travel with you?
I'd pick one close to your Home and do that, or do weekends at cooley.

Traveling trailor, middle aged T4. If that's not the exact  opposit of eliteism, then it dosn't exist! ;)

Seriously though, if your husband is in college too, factor that in.
