Have a plan for meeting the expenses of your legal education and anticipate what portion of the plan will be based on borrowing. It is also important that you have a good credit history. Because most of your financial aid is likely to come from loans, you are likely to graduate from law school with debt to repay. Currently, the average law school debt is about $100,000.

  • The relationship between air pollution and premature mortality is most often studied using time-series analysis of daily observations of the number of deaths and pollution levels. These studies capture the effects of short-term exposure to pollution on the probability of dying. The underlying assumption is that there is a distribution of susceptibility to the effects of air pollution in any population. People who are in a weakened physical state or who have a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or cardio-pulmonary problems are thought to be the most vulnerable.

  • Most of the VOCs probably derived from indoor sources. However, the wall cavity was an apparent source of acetaldehyde, toluene and xylenes and the belly space was a source of 2-butanone, lower volatility aldehydes and aromatic hydrocarbons. Indoor minus outdoor VOC concentrations varied with time. Adjusted formaldehyde concentrations exhibited the most temporal variability with concentrations ranging from 25 µg m-3 to 128 µg m-3 and the lowest concentrations occurring in winter months when indoor RH was low.

  • In practice, the number of passive assets must be limited in some fashion. Our empirical design includes p passive assets, consisting of k benchmarks and m nonbenchmark assets, and the benchmarks are associated with popular asset pricing models. Suppose one admits the possibility that the benchmarks do not price the nonbenchmark assets exactly, that is ®N 6 =0.Then ±A, the intercept in (2), is a better measure of skill, in that it is de¯ned with respect to the more inclusive set of passive assets.

  • The production function characterizes health as a form of human capital, where current health status is a function of choices and shocks over the individual’s lifetime. Specifically, an individual’s health capital, such as height, is the result of a set of factors, including previous health status, medical care, personal behaviors, and environment –some of which are observed, i.e., altitude, whereas others are not. Some of the determinants are chosen, such as nutritional intake, medical care, and time spent in seeking care.
