THE MIRACLE OF HARVARD


People, I prayed for it and I got the 2nd email. I now wait for Him to manifest my admission letter within the next 8 weeks.

Friends, please have faith in the Holy One. For He has said that ''...whosoever shall say unto a mountain, be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it...'' So He tell us ''... all things whatsoever you pray and ask for, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them...''

People, I believe I have been accepted by Harvard and so it shall be.

Friends, praise Him for his mercy, kindness and protection. Amen, Amen, Amen.

Fajats, ye of little faith! I too believe that the promise is clear; Ask and it shall be given unto you. I can't explain it but i am at peace even though i haven't received the 2nd email. It's just a matter of time!

Very funny monkey! Watch your back or else you will be smot. lol

On a light note some closwns in my country recently sued the Pontius pilate and the guys who killed Jesus. They claimed that the trial was unconstitutional. I was in court on the day they sought leave to file their Petition. The funniest moment came when the judge asked the Petitioners how they intended to serve Pontius pilate et all and their lawyer said that they would seek substituted service. It was the funniest thing i have seen in a long time.

dk-mani, brother bless you.

Over the years many suits have been brought in His name (including at the US Supreme Court and Congress - http://www.teachermagazine.org/tm/articles/1996/02/01/05jesus.h07.html ) but He shall be the judge and jury of these cases when He returns.

As for the legal essay, I wrote about Jesus in the Koran and other Holy books and examined how they see the Redeemer's Second Coming. It was a highly moving piece for which I felt the Guidance of the living Hosts directing my fingers on the keyboard.

Brother, I give praise for His blessings and mercy over us.

I guess praying and believing in it can't help, plus it will give you time to think and not worry your stomach ulcer off waiting for letter, LOL.

Good luck to you all, I will be applying next september, for august 2010, so I still have to define which unis before I start asking the Lord for assistance.

Pray for the kids being mutualted in Dafur, guidance and wisdom in being a good human and for world peace. As bad as I want to get in, I am not wasting a prayer on it. It's selfish.

DUKE, I dont consider myself a Catholic per se, even though I was raised as one (i disagree with what the church has turned into), but I'm sure prayer is never wasted, pray for both. I don't think its selfish to pray for an acceptance letter, it would be selfish to study the LLM and continue working for yourself and no one else, instead, Take the courses, finish your LLM and then, help, not only by praying but by helping in some other practical way those who are in need.

Fajats,

I like what you say. I don't disgaree. I just, from a very early age, decided not to pray for material things for myself. What I do pray for is the ability to help others in any way I can. I let fate decide how that's to be done. Sometimes I benefit from helping others and most of the time I don't. What I wont do is pray for something for myself and pretend that it's really so I can help others...not saying that anyone on this board does that,,,. To pray for a million dollars so you can give some of it to poor and keep the difference for yourself is a prayer I personally refuse to make.

Just my way of practicing my religion. I don't force it on anyone else and respect anyone, such as you, with the goal of helping others. I even respect those who pray for material gains for themselves. I dont have a problem with it at all.

I actually practice in NY. I took the easy route though. I took the Pennsylvania exam and waived into NY a few years later.

I think the economy, at least for my practice in NY, is tanking a bit. I am a securities lawyer. But suprisingly, those people who practice law with a regulatory bent seem to be doing quite well. The regulatory and compliance type legal areas are hiring big. The M&A sections are dead and the securitization sections of law firms and in-house are non existent for the most part. No matter how poorly the economy gets, all investment banks, banks and insurance companies have to have the regulatory lawyers! So I would say there are many opportunities at investment banks and banks in regulatory-type legal areas. My friend is a pharm/tabacco litigator at a big private firm and his section is laying people off big time.

My advice would be to be open to all parts of the US, not just NY and the other big cities. Boston, Chicago and even some small towns have vibriant legal practices...which may be a good place to start.

what type of law do you want to practice?

It's good to hear from someone that is in the trenches and has the inside scoop on things.

I practice in a Constitutional/administrative litigation firm with a human rights scope, (we specialize in "Amparo" suits, if that helps to clear up our field of work) but I would like to continue litigating, but judging from what you are telling me, thats not exactly the flavor of the month, job related.

Thing with the bar is, I live and studied in a country where the Civil Law system applies, so I think I can only sit (and after the board allows me to) for the NY/CA exam. ¿If I pass the bar in any of those states, can I "transfer" to(waive into) another state?

Thanks for your answers, you've been really helpfull
