Victory in our time!

Or: I can answer questions about New Haven and Akhil Amar. You can ask me about my numbers and softs, if you like.

Otherwise, feel free to ignore me completely.

2L job search / Split-summer-friendly firms?
« on: August 05, 2008, 07:47:29 PM »
Anyone know the buzz about which firms are split-summer friendly? Or particularly unfriendly? NYC or Bay Area, would be splitting with PI, not another firm. I have no flipping clue about any of this firm *&^% and am still trying to decide whether to do OCI or not. Help is greatly appreciated.

Side note: anyone know about particular PI groups in the same areas that are or are not split-summer friendly? Public defenders/other crim is of the most interest. Clearly I'm really well edumacated about all this shteez.

...is about to be gone forever, unless you help save it.

Ask any YLS student.

Because I never, ever, ever, want to do my homework. And because I clearly do not know enough to answer questions yet. Nevertheless. I will bull to the very best of my abilities.

Where should I go next fall? / On Ignoring Rankings and All That Jazz
« on: February 09, 2007, 07:58:45 PM »
So. My pre-application personal rankings were HLS-Boalt-Penn-Columbia-NYU. It's still basically that, and it's happily a non-issue since I got into HLS. But I'm getting the sense that that preference order is completely stupid, when obviously the correct order (among these five; where are SLS? YLS? UChi? Duh!) is HLS-CLS-NYU-Boalt-Penn.

FWIW: I don't really know what I want to do with my degree, though I could see myself doing civil litigation or working for the Innocence Project (sigh...I love them); I would loathe a cutthroat atmosphere; I'm from Philly but adore the Bay area; I would like to have a life, even during/immediately after law school, which means I don't want to work 80 hr weeks ever. EV-er. Oh, also: I'm going to have a shitload of debt no matter how I slice it. UG and LS.

In light of these considerations, is my preference order as stupid as it seems to be? Obviously I'm waiting on ASWs to get a feel for the school (very very important to me), but the overall issues remain: had I not gotten into HLS, would I have been an absolute fool to pass up CLS for Berkeley or Penn?

Any and all responses (incl.: "You continue to be a dumbass") appreciated.
