  • is this for real?
  • Wednesday, March 22 2006 at 12:25 PM

whoa kid, calm down. why are you stressing about law school before you even go to college? and who in their right mind applies to 15 colleges? i predict that you will have a mental breakdown by junior year.

ima need u to get a life and stop tryin to plan out ur future at age 17/18. U don't even know if ur gonna WANT to go to law school in four years...be easy

- cryin for ur sad little life
  • Thanks for your concern.
  • Wednesday, March 22 2006 at 11:11 PM

Thanks for your baseless concern; it's understandable since you do not know me very well. I, for one, know what I want; don't be intimidated, be happy for me. I know what I want to do, and I'm pursuing it. And as for getting "a life": you know as well as I do that as future lawyers, you cannot assume. So get into that habit.

  • Thursday, March 23 2006 at 01:31 AM

hey sweetheart, please take a breather. i hope you're not going to be one of those guys who insists on working in BigLaw for 80+ hours per week and loses everything else (free time, family, sunshine) in the process. if you're going to insist on law, and you're OBSESSED with prestige, i think you are doomed for biglaw. just remember that working 80 hours per week for $120,000 is the exact same thing as working TWO $60,000 jobs. i'd rather have the $60,000 job and my sanity. just some advice from someone concerned by your prestige fixation. PS. i am bright (for example, got a 1570 on my SATs when they were worth 1600), so please don't think I'm some idiot bashing on you. please don't doom yourself to law slavery for the sake of prestige.

  • RE: "deep calming breaths"
  • Thursday, March 23 2006 at 01:59 PM

I truly thank you for your concern, however prestige is not the driving force to pursue a legal career. It is only a perk. I am not a naive young High Schooler going into Law after being inspired by Law and Order. I interned at a medium sized Law Firm, based in New York City, since Freshman year. I had serious responsibility; I even engaged with numerous clients. My point is: I have a strong idea of the life of a lawyer, especially a first year associate. But, at this stage in my life, I do not know anything else that I truly love to pursue. Until then, I shall keep an open-mind; with a focus on law.

The earlier you get familar with the LSAT and its way testing, the better. Postpone buying any actual Prep Tests. Instead, buy a Kraplan or PR book to get your feet wet. IMHO, extra-Cs mean Dick to the adcoms unless they are of extraordinary significance. For example, your teams are crowned national champions, volunteer work with aids kiddies in 3rd world countries, etc. etc. Remember You are only as good as last institution. College is a bigger pond What you did in HS and how you did in HS does not matter insofar as a prediction of college success. Enjoying academics/class/HW will make college ALOT easier. Imerse yourself in enjoyable subjects. Do things for the sake of learning, watch out for grade-A tunnel vision. Develop a genuine rapport and relationship with your professors. Not only for the sake of recs but because your profs may be some of the most interesting people you will ever meet. Love to learn, read, and think critically. Don't be an academic A-hole Listen to good music: Yo-La-Tengo = awsome. :) Keep things in perspective, grow as a person, stay away from bad box. Good Luck

  • Good Job
  • Saturday, March 25 2006 at 04:07 AM

I would go ahead and write all the top law schols and let them know all about yourself and that you will be applying in 4 years. AT that point, you can go ahead and buy your LS texts and start doing your reading for 1L. Also, go ahead and think about what you want to specialize in like "Mongolian Maritime Litigation" - make it really specific.

  • Glad I'm not at Syracuse...
  • Saturday, March 25 2006 at 07:35 AM

My advice? Don't do everything law school (mock trial, etc). Show that you actually have a life and some interests. Join the pep club, run for student government, study abroad - do something fun in there. Oh and try not to get cockslapped, because if this profile is for real, I'd say you're in big danger of having a permanent mushroom tattoo...

  • RE:
  • Saturday, March 25 2006 at 08:11 AM

"RE: GOOD JOB" Thank for the advice. Do LS actually care if a student calls four years in advance; or even one year in advance? How can they make a record of it without me being on file to begin with? "RE: Look Kid" Because I am finishing HS does not entitle you to belittle me because of my young age. But, I really appreciate your advice. Thank you very much. I will get started with LSAT prep after I take my AP tests in May. After that, HS will be a breeze thereby giving me free time for LSAT prep, and other activities. I will take your advice; thanks again. "RE: Glad I'm not at Syracuse" Why are you glad that you are not at Syracuse? In response to your post: Why shouldn't I participate in legal activities. It can only help me become a better legal advocate. As noted in my EC Information, I plan on joining the swimming team, and intern at a Law Firm like I did in HS. The student government is intriguing. I'll see what's offered at my college. Whatever interests me, I will participate in--if I have the time. As for studying abroad: I am DEFINITELY doing that. :) I'm eagerly looking forward to that.

  • stay true to your aspirations
  • Saturday, March 25 2006 at 04:43 PM

they'll only make you more determined in accomplishing your goal. I too had planned out becoming a lawyer before even going off to college. I wish I could say I had the experience you've had in a firm, but I am glad for the experiences I've been offered. Don't let others put down what you've worked for. If there is any city to enjoy undergrad I'd say Chicago would be a nice change from NYC. As a person from SoCal, coming to Chicago was an interesting change and one worth enjoying and both U of C and Northwestern offer quality educations (just don't be too disappointed if you don't leave either institution with straight A's b/c profs. are very hard on the grading from those I've talked to). Keep it up!

Thank you for your encouraging words. :) I appreciate it; and I will stay true to my aspirations. I will make it to most of the schools on this list. I will get there. :) I'm hoping for Northwestern! A bunch of friends that I knew from UofC's High School Summer Program are going to Northwestern.

One good thing about being so focused on your future is that you MAY not play around too much during college. My first year (okay, all but my last year of college) I partied quite a bit and had to work hard to bring that GPA back up. Hopefully, you remain focused because second only probably to your LSAT score- your GPA is a major determining factor in getting into a good law school. Also, try to get some volunteering in while in college- it is a very rewarding experience. Good Luck

  • Wednesday, May 10 2006 at 01:01 PM

It's ironic how certain individuals who are members of this board consistently mock me immaturely. Twenty-one year olds, or older, making lewd, inappropriate, and IMMATURE comments. For mere humor, I will keep these disgusting comments on my account, for the enjoyment of seeing these poorly written insults and threats match up against the evident success of my graduate school admission process. After browsing through your profiles, your 2.5 GPA did not quite cut it for Harvard, did it? Please, harbor your jealously toward the future success, and the threat to your legal careers. This site helps me prioritize my goals, not facilitate your need for an outlet to express your displaced aggression and frustration.

my man, it's hypocritical to fly off the handle when ppl criticize your academic performance, then to turn around and do just that to others (unless it's your belief that highschool performance is off limits, but college is fair game). the "you don't know me, don't judge me" angle should probably work both ways, if you really believe it. these sites make for great resources, but don't seek advice and get mad when ppl give it to you (especially when it's near-unanimous). and don't flatter yourself by thinking ppl are intimidated by you just yet. if you don't let yourself get upset when ppl speak paternally, i think you'll see that you're getting some decent advice underneath the sarcasm. i'll join the chorus -- college is a wonderful time to become a developed and interesting person, please don't do yourself the disservice of restraining that growth to fit a goal you seem to have crafted in the womb. try everything, take a wide breadth of classes, and if in the end you're still set on law school, adcomms will know that your's is an informed choice made by an open-minded person (they're pretty good at detecting unwavering, one-track minds). for the record, i'm hys if that matters. best of luck in anything you do, law school or not.

I have a feeling you would make an AWFUL drinking buddy. Calm down, relax, and enjoy college. Syracuse is an awesome school and so is Michigan! There is NO need to transfer unless you just hate the school you are in or the friends you have made (assuming you make any). Just so you know, I'm going to one of your top 5 schools in the fall and my undergrad is a TTT.

In order to act in the hopeful elitist way you are acting, NYCK, you must know how to properly use the English language. You have obviously not been taught the proper syntactical format of a well-formed English sentence. Your incessant overuse of commas indicates a piss poor grasp of the language. This does not bode well for your future in the field of law. For example: In addition: I will, most likely, intern at a Law Firm; and, perhaps, do some sort of volunteer work. Perhaps, some tutoring at a nearby school to help young children, a Hospital, the Big Brother Big Sister Group, and the like. We'll see...///

  • Wednesday, July 26 2006 at 02:18 PM

I hope you actually know what you are getting into. From the looks of a lot of stuff on this page (your what you will do in college, high school activities, desire to transfer up, and want to sign up for like every activity you can think of) it seems like you might just be doing law school because it sounds impressive. Research what law school is really about and make sure that you have no problem working 80 hour days. Also, there is no way you will be able to play varsity football and basketball if you weren't invited on scholarship at SU, and if you did you wouldn't have time for those other activities. Reality man... As a thought, the LSAT is like 100x more important than the SAT (which im assuming you might have not killed based on your desire to transfer up). Good luck in whatever you decide, I just wanted to add some "constructive reality." Also, I am about two seconds from calling this account flame.

  • Friday, July 28 2006 at 05:41 PM

I didnt sign in, but this is my account. My advice is this: dont sign up for everything at law school. Join one or two clubs and take on leadership roles. Colleges and law schools hate when people half ass everything. Also, when you are in a college sport you have very little time for anything but that sport. you also can pretty much only do one sport. another comment, make sure you go into school with an open mind. Syracuse isnt the best school, but it isnt the worst. just enjoy yourself. dont think about law school or the lsats for another 2.5 years. sign up for the june lsat after your junior year and start worrying about everything then. If you are so career driven now you will be closing your mind off to other opportunities in college. the president of my law fraternity decided weeks before apps where do that it wasnt for her. The only thing that matters is personal happiness during undergrad. Law schools want real people, not crowded up resumes. I did two clubs and was very involved. My school wasnt even ranked, but I didnt pay a damn thing for tuition. I came out with a great gpa, a difficult major, some volunteer work, some leadership/part time work, a lot of great hook up stories, a few good memories, a beer belly, a shitty lsat score, and most importantly, an acceptance letter to GW. I had a blast all four years. I didnt think about ls till i had to.... chill :) get a tan, surf for the rest of the summer, and start worrying about the college girls and stop thinking about law school...
