I think this thread needs a bump now that most of us have semi-finalized decisions

Emory

Corporate Litigation


Jeez, I hope you know what you're doing.  If you ever need advice on doing well, come back to LSD.

As a recently finished 1L and soon to be 2L (hoping I didn't fail): TITCR.  Even the lower T14 has gotten ugly.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Penn-Like Atmosphere?

Penn has a terrible atmosphere.

I can see why someone would want to pay you to give advice to 0Ls.   ::)

I can't think of a t14 school who has a more intense atmosphere than Penn...

Although I have a 1.5 day/15 student sample size.

Chicago, most definitely.

Probably Columbia too.

No, no they just had nothing else going for them but their grades/school, so they focus on that to overcome any evident lack of personality or social skills.  

they seemed more socially adept than the rest of us.

that's online persona, it does not work as well once you get off the computer and out of your mom's basement

I saw their facebooks.  Some of the guys and girls were pretty attractive.

Quite simply, last cycle's posters were vastly superior to the current posters (in particular the exilers).


1) not hardly;

2) i started the thread, and i was the 2006 cycle;

3) go @#!* yourself

didn't you start the thread after being more or less rejected froms sflsd?

haha, no. We started to dicuss Attack so as to not fill up SFLSD with facebook chat, then it morphed into what it is today, see http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,4012610.0.html

fair enough.  still, last cycles posters were much more fun.  I miss Rambis, Reese, Stot, etc

Find them. Join them.

I guess the MAS crew just all got lives :(

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Vanderbilt and debt
« on: January 30, 2009, 05:36:59 PM »
Okay, well, listen.  You're talking about firm work.  So if you're deciding between X school for 150k debt and Y school for 25k debt, you should only choose X if the opportunity for BigLaw, vis-a-vis your class rank, is appreciably greater.

So, like 15(a)(2) said, you'd probably have to be top 1/3 or 1/4 at Vandy for California firms.  Maybe even a bit higher to make it a sure thing.  (I know that atrocious Vanderbilt guy will probably quibble with me about the numbers, but he'll be wrong.)

Anyway, If you're looking at Vandy compared to a 25 or a 35 school, where maybe you need to be top 20% for CA firms, then the 10 or 15% leeway probably isn't worth tons of extra money.  If you're looking at a Tier 2 school (especially one outside of CA), where you'll need straight top 10%, then Vanderbilt probably is worth the extra money.

Again, this all assumes that Vanderbilt would be much more expensive than the lower-ranked schools.

This seems to be about right.

Top 1/3 would have been a lock for CA biglaw two years ago.  ITE, I would say top 25% (as long as you have CA connections) will be enough to land SOME kind of CA biglaw firm.
