  1. p.s. good thing you caught yourself, wtjrt... Edited by: jasontoronto at: 4/13/05 3:40 pm
  2. is swmel using her opinions on her fellow classmates in a public platform to win popularity contests? where do i sign up for the fan club?
  3. here's the link www.lawstudentparadise.co...php?t=2850
  4. i found this web site abt detroit mercy...here's what ppl posted abt this school. what do you guys think? ok guys, i got accepted to detroit of mercy ls. should i accept of decline? anyone have the scoop on this school. is it in the ghetto, is tier 3 or 4, is it aba accredited, also, what does attrition mean? maria. abc Yesterday, 06:51 AM #2 Unregistered Guest Posts: n/a I think it is in the ghetto. It is accredited. It is tier 4. Attrition means the number of people who flunk or drop out. If you do really well at U of D, you'll probably find a decent job. However, it is the #4 school in the Detroit area, so it's certainly not a guarantee of gainful employment. On the other hand, it is better than, say, Cooley. Unregistered Yesterday, 07:00 AM #3 Unregistered Guest Posts: n/a I transferred out of there after my first year at that sad excuse for a school! DECLINE!!! I wish I had! Yes, it's in the ghetto and yes there are homeless people living on the law school campus and yes you will get approached for money everyday!! It's a Tier 4!! Always has been and always will be! Yes, it's ABA accredited! Cooley is better in my opinion! Granted, they both suck & have high attrition rates but it's still better! Oh and the school is very, very, very old and the library looks like it's going to cave in any second! It's very out-dated!

(Where did you transfer to?) What makes you say it's worse than Cooley? Do you really think Cooley has a better rep and better placement in Detroit?

It's the most expensive law school in Michigan! I wouldn't be surprised if it was 1 of the most expensive in the U.S.! I think because it's private & jesuit! A shot in detroit?? Well, remember that Michigan, Wayne, DCL & Ave Maria are all ranked above it! Yes, it's in the heart of downtown ghetto detroit! Nearby is crack houses and beat up buildings! Really, I'm serious! Yes, it's like near the border! Good luck!

That should give you some basic info. The fact that it's Jesuit is a plus, in my opinion. Jesuits are known for rigorous academic standards generally. Also, I'm sure it's better than Cooley. It's been around longer, and it probably has much better profs, in addition to somewhat stronger students. If you can go somewhere better, go somewhere better. If you're okay with working in SE Michigan, and think you can place high in your class, then go to UDM. (Is Ave Maria ranked yet? If so, where is it? Thanks.)

Ave Maria has provisional accreditation, so it's not officially ranked yet. That being said, it did have the best MI bar passage rate and is supposedly a school on the rise.
  5. i'm thinking the heaviest, biggest laptop with the shortest battery life is right for me. oh, and it had better contract viruses like a kid in kindergarten, or it's NO WAY, JOSE!
  6. screwup1234, i wasn't as clear as i should have been... i was trying to be case specific to make a point. those that i was refering to by phrasing my statement in the manner of "those who don't work hard and think that they deserve something", were those ppl like swmel who brag about how little work they do and how smart they are. an important part of being smart is knowing when to keep his/her mouth shut. how long do you think the duration of someone like swmel would be in a firm with an attitude based on low work ethic and the inability to take responsibility for her own actions? bingo. 100% agreed on everything else you had to say. best, jason.

  7. my application is currently under review, and as osgoode is my first choice, i daydream occasionally that i might be accepted there. something i'd like other ppl's opinion on which has occurred to me, even if it is a little ahead of the game, are the pros/cons of buying a car/taking public transportation to york. i live in downtown toronto. i have always lived in downtown toronto. i have no intention of moving any closer to york than i already do. car: the obvious benefit of not having to deal with public transportation. to me, this is a big one. i've lived on pt my whole life, and would consider losing dependency on it as a major milestone. is it really faster or more convenient? pt: the obvious benefit of being able to get some reading done in those long (and there will be many) hours to and fro, and not having to deal with parking and the expense of a car. is it an efficient route or will i spend half my life waiting for a bus? as you may have guessed, i'm all about efficiency. maybe i should submit this as a writing sample for the lsat. i'd appreciate a little feedback. thanks. jason.
  8. swmel: i read your original post several days ago and have been "chewing" on it for some time. i've enjoyed the discussion that has resulted. i seem to find a slight contradiction in your situation... Quote: 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. you're classes are so easy and your fellow classmates are so unintelligent that you are blaming THEM for not being motivated enough? it would seem, from your own opinion of yourself, that you are smart enough to see that perhaps they aren't the problem. but i do hope you feel surrounded with ppl more "like yourself" at nyu because everyone deserves to belong somewhere. my opinion on the subject: 1. ppl who work hard and "don't get it", deserve respect. it might even be to your own benefit to help out a friend in this situation. 2. ppl who don't work hard and think that they deserve something, will always get what's coming to them in the end. 3. ppl who work hard and "get it", are the ppl to whom i enjoy talking. they are interesting, engaging and intelligent. without the hard work, they would only be a person like you, swmel. see #2 for my opinion on that subject. good luck at nyu.

  9. no, i haven't received an official offer as of yet, but did receive an e mail abt attending an open house. probably won't be going as i m busy w.wrk. anyone elso ge the mail. does this mean anything in term of a possible acceptance.?
  10. did anyone else get an e mail abt the open house at detroit mercy? anyone going?
  11. just this afternoon my file changed from "hold - committee review" to "in progress - committee review". i feel like i've been waiting in line for 6 months, and i've just moved ahead one spot. soon. maybe soon.
  12. if you're talking about what's happening right now in toronto, i wouldn't exactly classify it as "snow". it's more like buckets of slush being dumped on us from above. u of hawaii, u of puerta vallarta, u of cozamel... if only they'd have me... jewls: this semester i decided that there was no reason i had to look like i spent all my free time under the flourescent lamps at robart's... a 7 minute tanning session should do the trick... there'll probably be a queue today.
