Are all LLMs gunners? I don't remember that being the case 1L year. Do they eventually have the gunnerishness drained from them?

I've only had Buss, but I'd go with her for evidence. I'm waiting until the Spring to get her again.

If you have good enough grades to transfer to Yale, you'll have good enough grades to work wherever you want out of Chicago.

Chicago cabs are required to accept CCs, so you always have that failsafe.

Mine are. OCS also made that sound like that was the common arrangement. The only thing I need to handle are expenses to and from the airport and extra meals, but those are reimbursed as well, and won't be too much.

Right- I'm not saying that the T14 marking has any particular relevance. I just thought that was why it became "T14" and not "T15" or "T20" or T1000.

I think T14 is T14 because those have always been the top 14 law schools in the US News rankings. Georgetown has been right on the edge a couple of times, but hasn't fallen yet.

Oh man, that's the one I'm hoping for. I'd own that interview.
In fact, I'd love to sit down and have the first thing the recruiting partner say is, "so what's up with Texas A&M?"
No doubt you would own it.
I sat down.
"So . . . fantasy football? What's your favorite team?"
Partner: "so, how long have you been doing meth, then?"

I'm confused- you're retaking the LSAT for the second time, or retaking the practice tests for the second time?

Depends what you're looking for. It's not that the education is going to be that horrible per se, but you're going to have a real tough time finding employment after school. To be fair, that'd probably be true at Case Western as well, but not to the same degree.
If you improve your LSAT next time out you'll be in a much better position, but you need to ask yourself whether 6 figures of debt is worth it for the job prospects you'll have coming out of school. If studying law for its own sake is that important for you, it might be worth it. But don't go because it's something to do after undergrad; student loan debt is some of the worst you can take on because it can't be discharged.
