Octa-finals, you say? That's the Sweet 16 of the John J. Gibbons Moot Court Competition. High achievement for a mid-major law program. Moreover, by winning an award on par with Georgetown, Phoenix School of Law has taken another step toward cementing the T13 as the commonly accepted measure of the top schools.

All I can think of is competing against those octuplets. Toddler lawyers are scary like clowns.

So, it that school legit? I keep getting scholarship emails from them, but I never even applied. Seems kinda desperate considering my low LSAT score.

but really, "..." is a perfectly acceptable response to that statement, whether it was serious or sarcastic.

Why respond at all?

And the "+1" is also evidence of post whoring. It's like being that guy in an entourage who repeats what ever the leader says.

How much are people getting offered in that email? I am up to $15K a year.

Only another cool million to go and I'll start thinking about it.

Why hasn't it crossed their minds to change their name? It can do nothing but hurt them. Unless the association is what they want, which would be all like................... :shock: :lol:

Last November they sent me multiple personal emails offering me 10k (this was when I had a 150). I wrote Candy back stating that I was retaking the LSAT in Dec and inquiring what LSAT score I'd have to get to be offered more than half tuition. She never wrote back.
