Re: Best one-liners
When a collector comes over in shul with a hand full of cash and says "Tzadaka?" doesn't everyone respond "No thanks."
I would love to use a similar line when the gabbai come to ask if I want to daven for the amud. "No, it's ok, you can do it."

Not on your life. In case you can't see it I am sitting on my hands and I refuse to hit the like button. I am protesting the oppression of non-Jews on this forum.

Re: Lakewood Baby Left In Car
There are 2 issues.
There are babies that die due to negligence and those that die due to a mistake.

For negligence there's nothing you can do besides punish the parent.
To avoid mistakes, we need awareness that it can happen to even the most loving and caring parents, ans that we should add extra measures to avoid these tragedies.
We'll do anything to justify our enjoyment in gossiping

Re: Law School
Ya but he has a smaller sample size and could be that his students are usually of the smarter variety. Most of the people that are going to him (at least the people that I know) are really smart and are targeting the top schools in the country.
No doubt, but those numbers are still amazing, assuming this guy wants the same and will work hard, he may be able to do the same.

@CS1 4-6 hour for the December test may not be enough at this point ftr.

Maybe you had a really bad diagnostic  :P

Re: Law School
True, but after a mid 160s LSAT score, the 4-6 hrs per day may be fine for a 170+ on the next test.

To commute to Fisch and study well, he'd probably have to stop working in Oct & Nov.

The 1/3 gets in the 170's is a great motivator. If there's a 75% + change in that, then this is worth doing full time. (Married and paying Brooklyn rent)
The goal here is to try to get into Northwestern; ideally with a scholarship.


Maybe it is enough. Maybe not. The best practice is taking dozens of simulated tests and hundreds of simulated sections with timers. And some with no timers just trying to get every question correct.

The thing is improving to the 170's is the hardest part and while someome can get in the 160's with not studying intensely it has no indication they can do the same to get in the 170's. But I'm not saying he can't.

What is he working as now? If it's not an important job I don't see how it can be worth it to work now regardless if he knows he wants law school he should be putting his blood sweat and tears and whatever the cost to get the best score possible. Why go for a 170? Go for a 180. Striving high is a great motivator, and can help a lot.

And remember even with all the practice tests there is nothing like test day. Nerves are something that is hard to practice for. I say next to someone that was getting a 178-180 on all his recent simulated practice tests. He cancelled his score on test day because he set read his watch wrong for how much time he had left and bombed an entire section...

Also how much have you looked into Northwestern scholars who gets them? what GPA/lsat/work experience they have to have?

Re: Law School
I can tell you that I would no doubt drop everything over the next 2 months and only study for the LSAT 8-12 hours a day until I am consistently scoring my highest test score.

also need to consider your safety net. perhaps u have friends and family that can loan u some money/back u up if things don't work out for some reason (e.g. u freeze on the actual test/get sick) on this calculated gamble. some peeps who are basically on their own can't quit a job and live on unemployment for a year and then have no income for 3 more in law school (even if it works out).

All true, every case is unique.

But if you are taking loans for law school may as well take a few grand to study so you can get into a good law school.

Re: Law School
The $5 - $6K investment would be the class cost, plus the 1.5 months of time off the job cost.
+1000
Even just the goal of a 170 score can transform the $50+K/yr tuition fees into a free scholarship, so the $6K investment seems like a no-brainer.

It's challenging to see the upside of a $44K net gain when it's 2 yrs away. (Especially if we think that the $50K scholarship will come automatically even with a lower score and not quitting a job to practice the LSATs daily. However, if the LSAT score is the number that will be connected for eternity, then it's best to stop all other side jobs and time consuming activities and strive high towards the 180 as you recommended!)


No way does a 170 even guarantee admission into Northwestern, forget scholarship. Try for mid-170's or higher.

Also I think they like work experience from what I heard.

Actually with some very basic googling I found that "90% possess at least one year of post-undergraduate experience"

And

"How much does prior work/internship experience weigh into your decision making? What's the typical or expected amount of work experience from an applicant?

We are unique in this area. Although there are some exceptions, we almost exclusively try to enroll students who have some post-undergraduate full-time work experience­—ideally at least two to three years of it. Obviously it is very important to us and, for the college senior who is applying, the interview is the key place to offset this criterion by demonstrating a comparable level of maturity and fit for our community. There are many reasons that we like to see prior work experience but the main reason is that potential employers consistently tell us that they prefer it as well and that it makes a difference to them. In fact, they consistently mention that project management experience and ability is a huge plus for them; it is what makes their new employees stand out. Aside from that, we think of the law school experience as a 360-degree learning environment. Students learn from faculty, students learn from each other and, ultimately, our faculty members learn from our students. Moving to our preference for students with work experience has really enlivened our classroom discussions and it has greatly impacted our student culture, which is probably the most cooperative of any law school out there. No other law school takes the time to screen applicants so thoroughly for maturity, the ability to work in teams and strong interpersonal skills like we do through our work experience preference and interview process. Finally, through work experience, students often develop a much stronger framework for why they want to go to law school and the potential areas in which they may want to focus. The level of motivation and commitment goes up a notch."

With all that if you know you want North Western you shouldn't be teaching in a school should probably be looking for a more prestigious year of work. Unless you sell it as working with underprivileged kids and organizing programs etc.

Re: Law School
Uh Oh, it's time to get cracking. It sounds like Northwestern is stricter and has higher expectations than other law schools in the same tier.

Do they really expect pre-law students to have 2 yrs of law-related work under their belt?
Yes, the children/students can possibly be considered underprivileged and in need of additional guidance and programs.
Will work on those criteria and perhaps add'l job opportunities in areas of law after the Dec LSATs.
I don't think anyone says it has to be law related work, just something that you can argue will make him more mature, and a good lawyer.

Good luck!

Re: Best Sukkah? I've gotten a few questions about the construction of the succah I posted earlier so here are some pictures of various aspects of its construction.



Total size is 24x14

There is a frame built into the deck which stays up all year as well as a support for the schach. The light fixtures are outdoor fixtures which also stay up all year.



This part stays up against the house all year as well.



Here you can see the way the light is set up with a two gang switch in an outdoor box with a plug attached to the existing outdoor outlet allowing us to attach a timer.



Panels on the top and bottom are held in place by turn buckles



The bottom panels have 2 on each side while the top ones have one since the top slides into a slot.



The bottom of the door stays up all year while the top get screwed on each year




I see that the hinge got bent this year-probably by my two year old who figured out how to open the top without the bottom



The bottom door panel is held on by attaching two pieces of 2x4 with turn buckles on the outside



A general picture from the outside
