Never Rob a Law Student.

December 8, 2008 1 comment

I was supposed to post this a while ago but it slipped my mind:

Why You Should Never Try To Steal a Law Student’s Laptop

A thief learned the mistake of trying to steal a law student’s laptop last week after after becoming a punching bag for an Arizona State student he tried to rip off. Armed with a baseball bat, the intruder, Gabriel Saucedo, allegedly climbed through an open window into Alex Botsios’ apartment, waking the student and threatening to smash his head in.
Botsios was willing to let Saucedo take his wallet and guitars. Then the robber made the mistake that ultimately landed him in the hospital — he went for the laptop. According to Botsios, he said “Dude, no — please, no! I have all my case notes…that’s four months of work!” Saucedo, obviously underestimating the fury of an overstressed, overworked first-year, was unsympathetic. That’s when Botsios could take no more.

Wrestling Saucdeo to the floor, Botsios separated the bat from the thief and repeatedly punched him in the face. When it was all over, police had to get Saucedo stitched up before charging him with armed robbery and kidnapping, while Botsios only suffered some scrapes and a bruised knuckle. Most importantly, at least to the student, is that his laptop, which he called “his baby,” escaped unharmed. Next time, Saucedo might want to try robbing a third-year student, as they’re generally more docile.

To All Those Writing The LSAT Tomorrow…

lsat I just want to take this opportunity to wish everyone who is writing the exam tomorrow the best of luck.  I know I have a few friends that will be writing it as well so I hope it goes well for them.

Please take time today and relax.  Don’t do any practise exams.  In fact, get your mind off the exam totally today and just escape.  Go watch a movie, go snowboarding, skating, shopping…ANYTHING to get your mind off the exam.  And when you go home tonight, have a good dinner and go to sleep early.  Oh yea, make sure your pencils are sharpened before you got bed.  That way it’s one less thing you have to worry about when you wake up tomorrow.

I ran into a friend a few days ago who told me that on the day of the LSAT you’ll have so much adrenaline pumping through your body and that’s what will get you through the exam.  I hope you guys are a bit more calm than that.  Personally I’d rather write an exam in a state of somewhat calmness rather than constantly having adrenaline coursing through my veins but to each their own I guess.

I wish I could have joined you guys but circumstances are as such that I probably will not be writing the exam until sometime next year if all goes well.  I kind of feel like a loser for not writing it, left out but at the same time I am glad that I put it off.  I’d rather write it when I am completely ready rather than just having a go at it knowing I could have done better had I been patient and waited.

But anyways, good luck to all of you guys.  To all my friends, I’ll be there in spirit with you guys since I’ll be writing a final exam tomorrow somewhere on campus.  I hope you all do the best and we’ll see you in law school!
