Rapunzel,
     Many thanks!  I really appreciate the advice.  As for school, I'm thrilled that tax was not too bad for you.  As for me, I survived Con Law with an unexpectedly high grade.  I'm hoping that my real world experience working for a Big 4 accounting firm, my grades, law review, and the ability to mention that I spent my entire life in Pittsburgh and the fact that I'm soon to be married to a girl who is also from Pittsburgh will help to get me at least into the door.  Once again, thanks for taking the time and I really appreciate your advice!!!

Rapunzel,
     I am a fellow student of yours- I'm the CPA that you referred to in a prior post- we were in the same tax and con law classes.  I would really appreciate if you could take some time and provide some tips on interviewing and your views on some of the different firms.  As for me, I'm hoping to get some interviews with the bigger firms- I just made law review and GPA-wise I am in the to 5%.  I would really appreciate any insight that you could provide- i.e. what resources you used to prepare for interviews, what types of questions that are asked on interviews, and what kind of questions you asked the interviewers.  Once again, thank you!!! ;D

I absolutely agree with Rapunzel's above posting.  However, Barker will not be teaching both Legal Process classes: Barker will teach one class and Yochum will teach the other class.  As for Rapunzel's appraisal of the professors: it is a very accurate representation.  I suffered through the same tax class this year with our favorite tax professor and do distinctly remember the professor telling her to "drop dead" or something of the sort.  Very unprofessional in my opinion.  As for incoming first year students, good luck, keep your heads up, and please do not be afraid of the professors- it is merely a game that must learn to be played.  Confidence, confidence, confidence!!!  Once again, best wishes!
