ooooooh boy you will be ripped to shreds in the off-topics if you make it there. A fellow C/O 2020 poster, bwaldorf, is certainly right of center. She has been harassed a bit for that because this site is super liberal. I personally am a small "l" libertarian. I usually vote left because of my social liberalness. I vote libertarian when it's an option, even though some of the platforms for the party are whacky. but otherwise often vote Dem. I vote for some repubs in the local elections because everyone in my area is pretty far right regardless of party affiliation.

Libertarians also get ripped to shreds on here. #TaxationIsTheft #DefendThe2nd #LegalizeFreedom

I voted for Gary in 2016

I describe myself as a small l libertarian as well, but in the old sense of the word. I'm a libertarian socialist, I probably identify mostly with Luxemburgism. Support a small central government and direct democracy, But I'm also an anti-capitalist, which puts me pretty far from the US Libertarian Party policy. Johnson might be slightly less awful than Clinton in my mind due to foreign policy alone, but I threw my vote away with Stein instead.


A buddy of mine is a photographer for our University newspaper and went to a Jill Stein recount rally. He said there were like 20 people there and it was sad.

Stein was a shitty candidate, so many U-turns. I much preferred her VP candidate, Baraka, to her herself. Also preferred Soltysik and La Riva, but neither was on VA ballot. Voted mostly to vote against right to work.

For anyone interested in Rojava's economy, the literature on it is pretty sparse. This translation of a Russian article is pretty decent though: https://cooperativeeconomy.info/the-economy-of-rojava/
Should clarify I consider myself a Marxist and tend to be skeptical of anarchist revolutions' staying power, but "democratic confederalism" does interest me.

Right to right-center. Mostly because of ideological/moral differences between myself and beliefs that come from what I believe about the world vs the left.

There are probably a few of us around here, we just tend to be quieter about our political leanings due to how numerous/outspoken the other side is. For me, I mostly don't engage in those sorts of discussions/arguments, because I've found they tend to work out *exactly* the same online as they do in person - no one changes their mind because everyone has already decided what/how they're going to believe/lean, so the argument typically does nothing more than make some people angry cause unneeded tension among otherwise-similar people.


What's the right of center? Conservatives, essentially? I'm fiscally conservative in my own country but not sure which political spectrum I identify with here in the States. Not fond of [HI I'M THE WORD FILTER. THIS PERSON MIGHT BE AN IDIOT.] at all. Belief boils down to "let's mind our own businesses and not meddle with that of others". So where do I belong?


Right of center definitely = conservative in my mind. I'm fiscally conservative (this is somewhat complicated though - I believe we could cut the defense budget and still be fine, but that would require cleaning house and getting rid of bad/lazy gov't employees, and we all know that isn't going to happen) and morally/religiously conservative. Work for DoD as a contractor, so again, right-leaning in my thoughts on defense spending Red-blooded capitalism supporting American.

Lots of people would probably categorize me as 'traditional', but labels are stupid, so I try to avoid them

The difference between center right and far right to me is whether you are religious and conservative in your own actions, or whether you are religiously conservative and would like the government to legislate upon that ideology


Then I fit snugly in the center right category. Honestly DGAF about what other people do, and honestly I'd rather the gov't not determine how they are supposed to act. But I also would appreciate the same kind of behavior from the other side.

That whole thing gets complicated though - because I do have some political opinions about what should be legal/not legal based on what I see as a danger to society/myself, and other people don't see those same issues through the same lens. So while I might be opposed to something on a personal safety/decency opinion, someone else more right would probably be opposed to it for religious/ideological reasons, while someone else would be in favor of it because of a very different worldview.

This stuff is confusing and difficult.

Yepp, religion and politics are messy. In 100 years we'll all be laughing about the current situation, you know, if global warming doesn't usher in the next age of the dinosaurs

I like the idea of Friday over Monday. I like to leave bad news via email before I leave the office too. ;) (JK)

Also, the only politics I want is the politics of dancing. Also, pro pineapple/fruit on pizza!

(Yes I have political leanings. I wouldn't even call it a leaning, I'm actually pretty fervent which is why I have to stop myself from being tempted into getting involved.)

Did anyone else just get the email from TTT Barry U that had "LSAT Scores" in the subject line? That was just cruel.

100% this. I am also pro pineapple on pizza. Have you guys ever had grilled pineapple? It's super delicious. I highly recommend slicing some up and throwing it on the grill at your next BBQ.

Maybe by the time the scores come out, I will have learned the URL is lsac.org, not lsac.com

I am allergic to pineapple :sad:

I was scrolling through Instagram and this girl had posted a photo with the caption "gray day." My heart momentarily stopped, then I realized it was just a picture of an overcast sky. Literally a gray day. :x

YUPPPPP. Almost died. Do these schools even HAVE an application deadline? Seems slightly ridiculous that July is 3 days away and they're still talking about applications for this Fall...

Has anyone else not received any emails from any TTTs? I have mixed feelings about this.


Did you sign up for the referral service? Good way to get fee waivers IIRC.

What if we talked about... favorite TV shows? Whose bingeing what on Netflix/Hulu right now? I highly recommend the new season of Master of None with Aziz Ansari if anyone is looking for something new to start (30 minute, comedy, but also very well done and unexpectedly cerebral at times).


Definitely love BoJack as mentioned earlier. Right now I am bingeing That 70s Show since I never watched it much growing up. Am having a difficult time keeping "dumbass" out of my workplace vernacular.

Is there a way to retroactively do this?

Don't. They basically just email anyone with an LSAC account, and my email was inundated with "Good Luck" emails before the test. I have no scores reported, and no transcript uploaded, so the emails aren't an indicator of anything.

How do you do this? Did I not fill out something on my test form?? :(


It's on LSAC.org somewhere, I can't look right now because I'm "working"

No worries, friend. Just go into your profile on LSAC.org and you'll see a box you can check to get emails and other school info (I left it unchecked for a while as well and only recently figured it out).

I was a Hill intern in college, did some volunteering for the Clinton campaign, and now I volunteer with Battleground Texas and my local Democratic Party. I have some concern that having such an explicit political bend might taint my app in the eyes of some adcomms, but given the liberal leaning nature of most law it probably isn't much to worry about. I can probably rule out a Gorsuch clerkship in a few years though.

I volunteered for Romney in 2012, an issue based Super PAC in 2014, Rand Paul and then later Gary Johnson in 2016. I'm also the President of our political science honors society and did some state level grant lobbying with a fellowship. So yeah, pretty political.


I don't post much, but I'm a conservative. What did you do for Rand Paul? I have a few buddies aquatinted w/ their camp.

I don't think it said anything about other school info, but was it the Email news and updates section?

Me signing up for an LSAC account: "I don't want a bunch of junk mail from TTT schools"
Me now: "Please anyone talk to me"


Trying to find it. I think it might be the two questions about release of information on the bottom of the biographical information setting.

Do these exist? (Maybe Sanders and Paul to a degree) Trump and Clinton seemed to be constantly trying to prove they were the more hawkish candidate.
