Best of Luck with Finals!
We've come a long way since we started this Blog in August and now it's time to show what we have learned along the way.
Happy Finals and an even Happier Semester Break!!!
Saturday, October 29
You know, last I heard, Section A won...
Perhaps Sections B and D counted their chicks before they hatched, or weighed their candy before pulling the apples from the trash cans.
All in all, I’m glad the Boo Bash went well and the comments by Sister Grace at the end hit that home. I didn’t participate all that much, but I’m glad still the same.
As for which section rules… well… if you aren’t in Section A, you’re just out of luck.

Section B is the Best!!!
Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Lawyers. Don't let them write briefs, or argue in court. Let them be Doctors, and feasors of Tort.

Feb. 20004 -- 72.3% of St. Mary's Students Passed the Bar on First Attempt - Below State Average
Some 72.73 percent of first-time test takers from St. Mary’s passed the February exam, the first of two administered annually by the board to aspiring lawyers. That rate is a few points below the overall statewide average for first-time takers of 75.59 percent, but significantly above the 50 percent of St. Mary’s students who took the exam in February 2004 and passed.
“There is definitely room for both celebration, and improvement, given these results,” said Bill Piatt, dean of the School of Law.
Only 22 St. Mary’s alumni took the exam for the first time in February, including several who graduated in years past but had never taken the exam. The number of those sitting for the February exam historically is smaller than the July exam. For instance, in July 2004, 149 St. Mary’s alumni took the exam for the first time, 79.87 percent of them passing.Additionally, the percentage of St. Mary’s students who repeated the exam in February and passed also increased this year over the previous February results. Some 58.33 percent of those repeating the exam passed, the fourth highest pass rate of all nine Texas law schools among repeat takers, exceeding the statewide average of 50.64 percent.

Bob Schaezler for 1L Special Prosecutor
This is just a bit of obscene self promotion as the election nears. I'm running for 1L Special Prosecutor and I respectfully ask for your vote.
I promise to promote and advance our interests while prosecuting violators of the student honor code to the full extent of the remedies set forth by the lofty standards of the Student Handbook.
It's important to note that this has never happened before, and probably won't happen during my tenure, so I believe the thrust of my efforts will be in assistance of SBA to find and secure bar tabs throughout town. I can do that.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
Running for Senator
In a clever move Mo decided to leave me off the list of candidates that went around. Cunning, I know, but it will not stop my efforts to compete in this election! (I'm kidding. I love you Mo. Really.)
I am running for 1L Senator and I would really appreciate y'alls votes! I am very exited to be here, and have been on Student Council and then Student Government in both high school and in university. I really want to be involved and will help out with SBA regardless of if I'm elected.
California may have Schwarzenegger...
But Saint Mary's has Schwarz...
Except my name is shorter,
and my accent MUCH easier to understand!
VOTE SCHWARZ '05!
