Live With Aunt But Mother Is Legal Guardian. Financial Aid Help!?
Okay So Im Going Into My Senior Year Of High School And Obviously How To Pay For College Is A Huge Stressor. I Have Lived With My Aunt Since Freshman Year In High School Because There Was More Opportunity Here In Florida. My Mom, However, Is My Legal Guardian And Sends Money For Me So I Can Be Provided. Who'S Information Would I Put Down When Filling Out The Financial Aid Information. My Mom Is My Legal Guardian And Provider..I Just So Happen To Be Living Under My Aunts Roof??
You must use your legal guardian/custodial parent's information.
So you know, you will NOT qualify for in-state tuition in Florida due to your mother not being a resident and living with your aunt. Be prepared to pay out-of-state rates. You will likely also not qualify for in-state tuition in your mother's state until you have lived with her as a dependent for a year.

California Does It Make A Difference? I Understand That California Has Laws To The Effect That Graduating From A Ca School Will Get Yo Into The Ca Bar Assoc
California alone among American Bars does not require a law school education for Bar admission.
Internet law schools are crap. Sorry to be blunt. But I spent 9, arguably 10, years in law schools so I should have some right to an opinion. (And no, I never flunked anything; I studied in different countries.)
What Should I Major In For Law School?
I Know Theres No Required Major To Get Into Law School But I Was Wondering Which Will Benefit Me More. Right Now I'M Majoring In Political Science.
As you rightly noted, law schools don't look for any particular major at all--in fact, almost any academic subject is a fine choice when it comes to picking a major that will look good on a law school application. Although there are certainly "traditional" majors that students interested in eventually pursuing law undertake (economics, political science, etc.), there is no one "perfect" major when it comes to preparing you for law school. There are some majors (particularly those that aren't strongly academic, such as the arts) that may place you at a slight disadvantage but, even so, plenty of students in those fields get admitted to law school every year. If you major in something you love, then you have a greater chance of doing extremely well in school, which will translate to a high GPA, which will in turn increase your chances of admission.
The key is not so much what you major in but, rather, what you do within your major. Aim to do the following:
1. Pick a college major that will require a lot of reading- and research-intensive classes. Political Science falls into this category nicely, as does Business, English, Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and many others. Picking a major of this sort will not only prepare you for law classes (which themselves are incredibly research- and reading-heavy), but it will also demonstrate to law schools, when you apply, that you can handle the academic load of law school.
2. Keep an upward grade trend throughout college. This means that your grades either get stronger as you go through school, or start off strong and remain there for all 4 years of college. Most law schools will want to see GPAs of 3.5 or above (the closer you can get to a 4.0, the better).
3. Take a challenging class load: Intro classes are okay for freshman and (maybe) sophomore year of college, but once you get to junior and senior year, your focus should be on upper-level classes and seminars that allow you to really hone in and focus on your specific interests within the major. And, as always, keep your grades up throughout.
4. Establish rapport with your professors (particularly during your junior and senior years of college). You can do this by attending office hours, working for them as a research assistant, and talking to them after class. They will be the ones writing your letters of recommendation, and will only be able to write effective, overwhelmingly positive ones is if they have specific, anecdotal knowledge of you and can favorably compare you to other students in your class.
Another useful thing you can do, regardless of your major choice, is to take formal logic courses (which can be found under the Philosophy Department at the college you end up attending) during your sophomore and junior years; this will help you later as you prepare for the LSAT.
It doesn't hurt to start thinking about what else you can do in college to maximize your law school chances:
1. Work on your extracurriculars. Don't worry about being a part of 30 student groups; instead, focus on 2 or 3. Become a part and get involved during your freshman and sophomore years, and then obtain leadership positions in them during your junior and senior years.
2. Take the LSAT either the summer after junior year or the fall of your senior year of college. This will allow you to get the LSAT out of the way and apply as early in the admissions cycle as possible, which is incredibly beneficial to your overall chances.
3. Research law schools and become familiar with their LSAT and GPA requirements, as well as their acceptance percentages. Law school admissions center around your GPA and LSAT combination, so knowing where to aim is definitely a plus. A great place to start is the LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools: http://officialguide.lsac.org
I know I gave you a lot of info--I hope some of it was helpful! Good luck with everything, and please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Have A Question About Juvenile Law?
I Have A Friend That Has A Daughter That Has Two Charges On Her Record (Larceny And Breaking And Entering). Some One Told Her That She Can Get It Cleared When She Turns 18. Is This True?
Depends where you live. You are able to clear your record in Canada if you are convicted as a juvenile. It also depends how old she is now, because you can apply for a pardon as well, I think 5 years after the conviction.
What Work Or Community Involvement Experience Does Aperson Need To Be A Lawyer???
Perhaps the information you have received about possible community work/involvement necessary to become a lawyer versus my experiences are worlds and/or planets apart.
Becoming a lawyer has nothing whatsover to do with community involvment/ work until after, if at all, you do become a lawyer. Once, you become a lawyer, choose/select your city, county, state and go from there. If you work for the city you will need to know the political scene and economic scene. People who become good lawyers work their ..........tails off for 5 years and from there..its competitive as hell to obtain the right positions, land as a lawyer for the quality companies, etc. If you are an independent lawyer, etc, perhaps you need to get involved with the community. Criminal prosecuting and defense lawyers need to work with the city. Corporate lawyers could give a damn about community or civic involvement. Private lawyers for big firms wouldnt know the difference between a community and a back rub.
