For those out there who are proud of their gunnersmanship, a shotgun case can make an effective tool to transport large numbers of books AND inconvenience the rest of the class at the same time.

Law School Admissions / Re: So I'm Considering Law School....

I've said it in a thread quite similar to this one, and I'll say it again - don't go to law school unless you would be happy practicing law.  It really doesn't make sense to go for a JD for any other reason, and sports jobs in law are notoriously tough to get, due to the level of competition.  Just based on your GPA, it would be rather difficult to land those positions...

Ah, 63, sorry 'bout that, I knew it was somewhere in the middle....Anyway, transfers are a long shot as less than 25 people transfer per school per year on average.  Generally speaking, it's a bad idea to count on a transfer when going to law school, as they rarely work out.  I stand by my earlier assertion - don't go to law school unless you're happy with ending up as a lawyer.

It's also important to note that Case is ranked around 40, I believe - they're far from fourth tier and VERY far from unaccredited.

If you're that determined, you have two options.  Either wait, study for and retake the LSAT or go for the MBA. 

OP, as much as I hate to say it, you may want to reconsider your choice of career - there are a TON of people who want to be sports agents, and very few actual jobs in the field.  With your incoming numbers, you'd be fighting an uphill battle from the starting gun, where most of your competitors are already ahead of you.  It's not impossible to do what you're thinking of...But it is highly improbable.  I always say to not go to law school unless you have a desire to practice law, and that applies here as well.  Unless you would be content working as a lawyer, don't go to law school.

Well, I have an older Aspire, and I really like it....I am going to have to replace it soon, though, due to some issues with the case (one of the hinges is breaking off of it..probably more of my fault than the manufacturer's.

Fine.  I'm out of here...But I still think it's ridiculous to assert that my comments were racist.  This thread is a prime example of why race relations are no better than they are - a man can't even attempt to discuss something like this without being labelled as a racist. 

But that link supports my earlier claim!  I said that it was not *solely* racism, and your link says that it is not *solely* anything else either - there are elements of racism, perhaps, but it is not the sole cause of higher crime rates among people of different races.

Let me just say this....I'm not going to continue the argument, but I'm not really sure what statement has everyone up in arms.  Is it the "it's not racism" statement regarding crime?  If so, I do believe that it's a valid point of discussion among a lot of people involved in criminology - I have taken a number of criminology classes in my undergrad, and I seem to remember a lot of models of why people commit crimes...I'm not entirely sure why that statement is so bad, just to be honest.
