  1. Hard Work v. Naturally Smart/Bright = Law school Success?

    That is exactly why its so irritating. I went to undergrad with people whom I had lots of respect and thought were incred. brilliant and smart. Imagine my dismay in Law!
  2. Should I tell this lawyer that he must hire me?

    This post explains everything.
  3. Hard Work v. Naturally Smart/Bright = Law school Success?

    ...I think you are posting because you feel you need to justify the fact that you are stupid and have to work harder than most people to get anywhere. Bc: Ive done just fine in the real world. It must be all the extra time that I have from being super smart and not having to do any work - do you have to work hard to be cool too?

    So why did yall read and post under this thread then? If seriously so secure, why do you contrast yourself against me?

    Notice how only the "stupid" people have been knocking the post?

    Jason, Like I said, I'll let you know how it turns out after this summer. Of course, not all of us are secure enough with ourselves to be threatened by an online poster and need to dig up the impossibility of being accepted by an American school, are we now screwup?

    Yawn....Im so tired of people trying to knock me for bringing up this subject. I do hope I get whats coming to me jason. I'll let you know how it turns out.
  8. Applied Degrees and such?

    Im sure yall know of community "colleges" such as Devry which offer 2/4 year degrees. They arent considered university degrees but are called "Bachelors" anyways. Do these count for law school admissions?

    Transfer=moving schools; I have to redo courses from 1L and applied with my GPA and LSAT. But I can take 2L courses. I already said that in my other post prior to last week. It's just called a transfer because I consider that Ive already done one year of law school and am not a brand new student. Does that clear things up or should I be scanning my acceptance letter for yall? Edit to add: In addition to UG GPA and the LSAT, I also submitted my midterm marks from UA; with 4 reference letters from my current profs endorsing my "transfer." Snowman: I think challenging and learning is one in the same. If I am not challenged, I wont be motivated to learn; if not motivated, I'll slack and end up learning nothing. Give me a SUPER hard course however, and I'll work my ASS off to learn the stuff - feel completely fulfilled and be happy. Edited by: swmel at: 4/7/05 5:22 pm

    Poker: I think I might clarify my statement with a hypo: Student A reads every night, keeps up with work, and finds it really hard to get a simple concept. The student listens in class and is always diligent. Puts in 110% effort. Student B never reads, but decides that they better start reading since its exam time. This student reads for one night and "gets" the entire course like THAT. The latter is what I felt the students (ones I met anyway) at NYU were mostly like. All had this knack of picking things up quickly and therefore never really had to work "hard" per se. It struck me as glaringly different from my current situation. I just wonder if maybe those who work throughout the process are more fulfilled in some way, even if they work really hard for the average mark, while the "knack" students get the higher marks, but dont feel like theyve learned anything.
  11. rejection

    Uc doesnt run on STATS. Do you have sufficient extras/work-life experience to your resume?
  12. Quick question: Is there any difference between them besides the fact that you NEED law school to become a lawyer? My cousin is taking one of the above degrees right now and she learns everything I just learned at LS.

    Ez: what did your do your UG in?
  14. Hard Work v. Naturally Smart/Bright = Law school Success?

    Um, depends what you define "smart" as. I dont think people who work hard are considered "smart" - I think they are hard workers who have great motivation and discipline. But I guess that all depends on the distinction between bright and smart. Im confused now.
  15. Hard Work v. Naturally Smart/Bright = Law school Success?

    Djan: Do you think that us "types" are not meant for Law school? That Law school caters/rewards the hard workers? And - I dont mean reward as in getting good marks, but feeling fulfilled and happy. (I was a lot happier in undergrad; the work was much more challenging and engaging.)
