Before I move, I'm going to make peace with those who have wronged me.  And by make peace, I mean set fires.  And by those who have wronged me, I mean Mizzou and SIU.
Peace. :-*

Since I'm not gonna quote the entire run of the last ten or so quotes, I'll just say this is one of funniest threads.  Glad to hear I'm not the only one who hears people talk about going into international law and health law.  Good grief.   ;D

Right before I was about to send my application to Penn, an admission officer rang to my phone and simply said, "Please, save your money".  Click.

Apparently, if all this trend keeps up, I'll still be waiting by my mailbox throughout the summer, too. >:(

I now classify Mizzou and SIU-Carbondale T5's since they rejected me.  Wow!  They just went WAY down in my rankings. :P

Wow!  You mom's kick as_  I have one 2 yo daughter and my wife is going to support me through law school and I think I have it tough. :)

Same here. 13 mo old boy and another baby on the way.  Wifey will be the sugar mama while I am in school.  I can't even touch these moms' fortitude.

This crap cracks me up.  It seems the overwhelming attitude is that if you don't go to tXYZ school, you might as well make contacts at the public defender's office in your region. People, think about how much effort and preparation you put into law school application, LSAT prep, UG grades, etc., in order to get to the school of your choice.  Imagine the amount of hard work you're going to have to employ to do well in school.  Now, don't think for a second that you will lose that drive upon graduation.  Regardless of what field of law or work, for that matter, you enter, you will still have to do the things necessary to help ensure you attain your goal.  It's (according to the Gospel that is LSD input) going to be a little easier to get a biglaw job coming from a top school and your school's name will be better known wherever you go, but people hire PEOPLE, not degree-granting institutions. MCB's right--you just have to put in the legwork, and you've been doing that your entire life.  8)

If you want a subtle way to make it clear to them, submit one copy of your PS in English and one in Hebrew.  You'll get an "A" for fireworks, and they sure wouldn't forget you.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: DoJ school choices?

You can check out DoJ and the US Attorneys' web sites (I'm sure USA's are on DoJ but I don't have the link here), and each district has the lead USA's profile / bio listed.  Just a guage.
