If Plan A doesn’t work…Turn to Plan B!

Isn’t that the tag line for Plan B?

Was watching the news this morning, the FDA has approved over-the-counter sales of morning-after-pills or Plan B pills.

Women may buy the morning-after pill without a prescription — but only with proof they’re 18 or older, federal health officials ruled Thursday, capping a contentious 3-year effort to ease access to the emergency contraceptive.

Here is an article for more info.

Saw Jason Schwartzman at Coffee Bean today.  He was in shopgirl if you remember.  I never realized how short he was before…

The Stupid People that Walk Among Us.

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: “Free to good home. You want it, you take it.” For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it.
He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read:
“Fridge for sale $50.” The next day someone stole it. ===============================================
While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn’t want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, “Does the sun rise in the north?” When my brother explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, “Oh, I don’t keep up with that stuff.”

“Better Days”

Goo Goo Dolls – Better Days

And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days
Cuz I don’t need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again

And it’s someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we’re alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there’s 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again
Cuz tonight’s the night the world begins again

Getting into Law School – Part 3

Time to talk about the….LSAT. I know it strikes fear in your heart but you need to figure it out! In Part 1 I introduced the “Getting into Law School” post series I’m writing and last time in Part 2 I talked about the what when and where of law school so its about time to get into the LSAT.

What is the LSAT? Well…from LSAC (Law School Admissions Council)

The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is a half-day standardized test required for admission to all ABA-approved law schools, most Canadian law schools, and many non-ABA-approved law schools. It provides a standard measure of acquired reading and verbal reasoning skills that law schools can use as one of several factors in assessing applicants. The test is administered four times a year at hundreds of locations around the world.

The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) is an examination every law-school applicant must take. Scores on the LSAT range from 120 to 180. In other words, a person can take the LSAT and get all the questions wrong, but still receives a score of 120. Another person getting all (or almost all) the questions right receives a 180.The test plays a large part in your admission to schools, much larger than your GPA. This test could make or break your admissions to your school of choice. The LSAT is not a test of knowledge, memorizing lists won’t help. The LSAT aims to test the level of logical and analytical skills that you’ve acquired. The only way to prepare is to practice, get a feel for the test format, and learn techniques for attacking the different question types and sections on the test. Its Best to take the LSAT in June or October of the year you are applying and even better to take it while you are still in academic and test taking mode.

The LSAT is comprised of five 35-minute multiple-choice sections: two in logical reasoning, one in logic games, one in reading comprehension, and an “experimental” section that may comprise any one of the above. The experimental section tests new questions for future LSAT-takers. The good news? Because there is no penalty for a wrong answer on the LSAT, you should never leave a question blank and your guesses might get you points!  Here is a great site you can take a look at to get an overview of the different parts and about acing the LSAT.

For most I strongly suggest taking a prep course.  Kaplan, Princeton Review, and Testmasters all provide good LSAT prep courses.

I am currently attending Law School, so if you have any questions about the admissions process, LSAT, or law school, you can leave me a comment and I’ll be glad to address any of your questions or concerns.

Good LUCK!

Busy moving, Busy studying, Busy Worrying….

Sorry for the slow down in posts right now.  I have been moving and beginning my first week of classes in Law school.  Getting into Law School – Part 3 (Continuation of Part 1, and Part 2) is coming in the very near future so be patient!!  In the meanwhile I wanted to find out if there are any topics you readers want me to talk about?  Please comment and let me know, I’d be more than happy to blog about some new topics that you guys want to hear about.

I’m looking forward to your comments and requests!

Getting into Law School – Part 2

So you think you want to go to Law School? Really? The first step to getting in is really deciding that you want to go. You need to sit back and think about it. Law School is hard, applying is stressful but only the beginning to a tough 3 years.  Take a look at Part 1 if you haven’t already.
After thinking about it if you have decided you want to go the next step is to think about what interests you. What do you want to be doing as a lawyer? Do you want to be in court? Do you want to do Family Law? Do you want to do Criminal Law? Trial Law? Bankrupcy Law? Georgetown has a page that goes through some of the choices for anyone looking to get familiar.

Alright, awesome, you’ve decided you want to do it, you have some idea of the different fields involved and maybe a preference as to what you want to get involved in. Now, a little bit of logistics, can you go to law school? Does your current life situation allow you to, or can it be arranged? Can you attend full time or part time or does it not make a difference? Do you need or want to stay local or are you looking to attend school in a particular area? When can you begin law school? Next fall? The fall after? (Most Law Schools don’t take Spring admits)

Now we can start applying! Now that you know your criteria, when what how, you can start looking for schools that fit this. I usually search around on Princeton Review’s site, which allows free searching of law school information. Also you can look through the US News Law School rankings to get some idea of were schools stand (rankings aren’t exact but they give you an idea).

Last, but not least, if you think youre starting next fall register for the LSATs right now! You can do this through the LSAC website.

Next time I will talk about preparing for the LSAT and more!

Getting into Law School – Part 1

I am starting orientation for Law School today and figured I could provide everyone interested with a little guide about getting in.  It was a stressful experience but I learned a lot of do’s/don’ts and figured they would be worth sharing with all those who are going to be applying now.  I will be talking about the application process, LSAT’s, schools, rankings, online communities and sites that you can learn from, waitlists, and acceptions.

Today is just an introduction to the series of posts.  Most applications are not due until February so no real rush, but I do suggest everyone gets started now.  Admissions at most schools are rolling so that means the earlier you get your application in the better your chances are.  Your best bet would be to get your application in before the holidays (before Thanksgiving).

Get working!!! And stay tuned for the next installment.

Don’t worry, I speak blonde.

Cute joke I got in an email.

THE PLANE IS ON ITS WAY TO HOUSTON WHEN A BLONDE IN ECONOMY CLASS GETS UP AND MOVES TO THE FIRST CLASS SECTION AND SITS DOWN.

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT WATCHES HER DO THIS AND ASKS TO SEE HER TICKET.
SHE THEN TELLS THE BLONDE THAT SHE PAID FOR ECONOMY CLASS AND THAT SHE WILL HAVE TO SIT IN THE BACK.

THE BLONDE REPLIES, “I’M BLOND, I’M BEAUTIFUL, I’M GOING TO HOUSTON AND
I’M STAYING RIGHT HERE.”

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT GOES INTO THE COCKPIT AND TELLS THE PILOT AND THE
CO-PILOT THAT THERE IS A BLONDE SITTING IN FIRST CLASS THAT BELONGS IN ECONOMY AND WON’T MOVE BACK TO HER SEAT.


THE CO-PILOT GOES BACK TO THE BLONDE AND TRIES TO EXPLAIN THAT BECAUSE
SHE ONLY PAID FOR ECONOMY SHE WILL HAVE TO LEAVE AND RETURN TO HER SEAT.

THE BLONDE REPLIES, “I’M BLONDE, I’M BEAUTIFUL, I’M GOING TO HOUSTON
AND I’M STAYING RIGHT HERE.”

THE CO-PILOT TELLS THE PILOT THAT HE PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE THE POLICE
WAITING WHEN THEY LAND TO ARREST THIS BLONDE WOMAN WHO WON’T LISTEN TO REASON.

THE PILOT SAYS, “YOU SAY SHE IS A BLONDE? I’LL HANDLE THIS I’M MARRIED
TO A BLONDE. I SPEAK BLONDE.”

HE GOES BACK TO THE BLONDE AND WHISPERS IN HER EAR, AND SHE SAYS, “OH,
I’M SORRY.” AND SHE GETS UP AND GOES BACK TO HER SEAT IN ECONOMY.

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT AND CO-PILOT ARE AMAZED AND ASKED HIM WHAT
HE SAID TO MAKE HER MOVE WITHOUT ANY FUSS.

I TOLD HER, “FIRST CLASS ISN’T GOING TO HOUSTON.”
