Re: Anyone from engineering career here considering law school?

I come from an IT/ InfoSec background.

I opted to go to law school largely out of frustration. To many times I have seem attorneys and tech geeks fail to find common ground. As best as I can tell, few people that I know have gone down this path.

Re: SCOTUS and Other Big Cases

So, help me out here. What we have learned in the tax case is that no future administration ever needs to respond to any request made by congress or anyone else.

Re: Evaluation of International Master's Transcripts

I applied to law school having completed a masters from thenUnited States). My observation is that it seemed to make little to no difference in the breakdown for acceptance/rejections.

I suspect that a masters from the UK would be similar.

Re: What are my chances? At 32 years old, Should I try to go to law-school. Please give me your honest feedback.

I pondered law school for ~4 years before enrolling.

I am now, and was at the time that I seriously starting thinking about law school, married and with a child.

I agree with pancake, but then I may be biased because I did not start law school until I was in my 40s.

Re: April 2020 LSAT Cancelled - May exam added to take AT HOME

I think that as summer approaches, there will be a real concern about additional waves of coronavirus spread, especially if we see Wuhun have problems after they try to return to normal. If so, holding an exam bringing thousands of people together in person for multiple days in September may not see...

Re: COVID-19 and KJD?

Hi all, thank you for your responses so far. I am majoring in philosophy at a t30 school, so I'm not sure if my school will make up for my choice of major. I am mostly wondering if it is worth applying this cycle (c/o 2024) with the *plan* of deferring a year (to c/o 2025) but the *option* of matri...

Re: Will Coronavirus Mean Budget Cuts (And Lost Jobs?)

It is hard to say how things are going to work out. My take is that while some organizations will take a financial hit, I suspect that state and federal governments will likely hold up better than companies will.
