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.

Job Search / Split-summer-friendly firms?
« on: August 05, 2008, 04:47:29 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.

Law School Admissions / The Best Thing About Going to YLS
« on: January 31, 2008, 03:30:51 PM » 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.

Choosing the Right Law School / On Ignoring Rankings and All That Jazz
« on: February 09, 2007, 04:58:45 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.
