Re: SCOTUS and Other Big Cases

I completely missed the Fulton decision, somehow. Fuck this court. Can someone explain to me how Fulton does not lead to a bizarro world where any law that has any discretion built for some type of hypothetical case will no longer apply to anyone who pretends to be a member of a “religion”?

Welcome to the forum, I suspect as a group we are fairly US centric, so I am not sure what direct info we may be able to provide.

Re: SCOTUS and Other Big Cases

The pages of argument around the meaning of the word “so” in Van Buren seem like bullshit, although I am not opposed to the general outcome of limiting the applications of the computer fraud and abuse act based on a legitimately authorized user failing to adhere to an internal policy.

Re: Anyone here who left a safe/golden-handcuffs career?

The money was not dramatically different. In part this was because I was with a government agency that was on a different pay scale than most. The biggest driver in making the change was that most orgs (government and otherwise) were moving more and more of their IT efforts to cloud companies. Given...

Re: PSA for 2021-22 Applicants: Avoid Notre Dame Like the Plague

This does sound messed up.

If I had been accepted at a school that I had applied to and they told me I was out of luck later on the same day I would have been pissed. I am glad that people are drawing attention this for future applicants.

Re: LSAC School Report

I think you are referring to the ABA 509 report.

A consulting firm that works with people wanting assistance with the law school application process, Spivey Consulting, has a link to a spreadsheet that has 509 data.

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: 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.
