Law School Applications / Re: Where should I withdraw from?

Really, why do people try to make the top 50 users on LSN?  Doesn't it just mean that you've spent too much time on here?

I am also curious about this. What is the appeal of being on that "top users" list?

Exactly, H = much better lay and international reputation, pretty much equivalent legal reputation, much better location.  Y = very slightly better legal reputation.

Honestly, I still see little appeal of Y over H.

How about no first semester grades?  Small school environment?  No GPA?  Class Rank?  Clerkship placements?

Speaking of prestige (which I don't care as much about), if we were to get into a prestige discussion, Yale is #1 and has been since the beginning of USNWR time.  That counts for some prestige.

Internationally, though, H does beat Y in terms of prestige. At least in East Asia (where I may want to work), H has a reputation that can't be topped. Then again, maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better because I haven't heard a peep from Y. I guess it all depends on how you define "prestige."

Some of you already know this about me, but I study very, very little

To be fair, it's hard to study a lot when you're spending 60 hrs/wk on your chipmunk porn empire.

Chipmunk porn is a booming enterprise...good job on getting a piece of the industry before its saturated  ;D 

Seriously. Think Amazon.com in 1994. (Don't tell him, but that's why I want to marry practiceboy.)

I love that you're always so understanding.  I can't wait till we get gay-married in Massachusetts next fall

As long as you're still willing to have an Mick Jagger look-alike perform the service, I'm all for it!

is anyone that is waiting to hear back or already into law school finding it really really hard to study knowing these grades aren't going to really be seen by anyone?  yay pass/fail at brown :-)

I'm usually pretty motivated regardless of who is going to see my grades. But anyway, isn't the average GPA at Brown like 3.7 or something? Even if it wasn't P/F, I bet you'd have little to worry about. :) Nice work owning this admissions cycle, BTW.

Man, I'd take a paper over an exam any day...I'm studying for an exam right now  :-\

I would too, which is why I like this system. :)

This doesn't make any sense to me. What kind of studying do people do in addition required work? I have to memorize words for vocab quizzes, but that's it.

So you don't study for exams?

Hmmm, maybe it depends on major...or how well you can remember things.

Exams are extremely rare at my school once you get past the 100/200-level.

Lucky you.

Depends on where your skills lie, I think. Instead of exams we have papers, so this system is probably worse than a test-intensive one for those people who have great memories and test-taking skills.

Well, I didn't factor doing required work into studying time.  The other day I spent 3 hours briefing a 35 page opinion from 1877, so I'm used to doing the work.  I just don't need to devote extra time study that often.
