Retired Grandma

Postby manfedman » Wed Jan 01, 2014 4:01 pm

Hey all-

I have asked about LSAT preparation and am realizing that I have only two options as to where I can Goto School due to my location: University of Richmond School of Law or William and Mary Law School. Which one would you all recommend? My husband went to Washington & Lee. I live in Providence Forge so each one is pretty close. If anyone knows one that would be better for me, but is a little further, than I can consider because my husband has a personal driver from his bank.

First of all, edit out the name of your specific town. Only a few people from that town will apply to law school, likely no other ones your age.


That said, obvious flame is obvious.

This was a real gem.

Among my favorite lines are:

"I absolutely adore Workers Compensation."
"Law firms do not have assets to train an attorney for over a year."
"I don't think we do enough writing."
"I don't think failing courses should count against you."
"I think everyone should get a do-over."

Without sounding too judgmental, more Cooley-attendees should write these letters. The quality is unmatched.

Don't forget: "My peers are interested in international business and only speak American." :wink:

I'd never run across that before. Seriously, gold-plated gold.

The black mark comment reminded me of that episode of Hey Arnold.
