Law Firms / Re: Q&B
« on: February 11, 2007, 06:32:24 PM »
No, I'm 0L... I just saw that it seemed like they have a sense of humor, which seems out of the ordinary for a lot of big firms; plus, I am interested in IP law, so just curious about the firm and what they look for in a summer assoc.

Law Firms / Q&B

Can anyone tell me anything about Quarles and Brady?  Beyond what is available on NALP and the like, of course.

You can add me to the UF 2010 list

Law School Applications / Re: University of Miami Scholarship deadline
« on: March 26, 2007, 02:20:31 PM »
I never got the acceptance form (lost in the mail, they are resending even though I won't be attending), but from my understanding unless the form lays out the terms of acceptance (and says so), it is not binding.  Same situation as FSU's scholarship (acceptance form but no terms), which I sent in and still do not know if I will be attending.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Univ. of Miami anyone?
« on: March 26, 2007, 02:11:02 PM »
I'm telling you, I lived there for 2 years and it was hell.  People getting robbed at gunpoint in the parking garage, my best friend's car was stolen, my husband's motorcycle was stolen, my next door neighbor's apartment was broken into, an old lady was robbed...all of this in the building, and within the span of a few months.  And these are just the incidents that I heard about because they happened to me and people I knew.

Trust me on this one.  It's not worth it.

Ahhhh... Miami     ;)

In the e-mail they sent it said that if you accepted the scholarship you had to send the seat deposit in simultaneously.  I assume if you are willing to forfeit your seat deposit then you would be able to withdraw.

News Discussion / Re: Ann Coulter calls Edwards a Faggot.

Comparisons like that are always rhetorical and I wouldn't recommend getting too het up over them.

I would usually agree with you, but the point of the thred is kindof all about getting too het up over things.  And I do find the comparison personally offensive, so why not get het up? I find the comparison much much much more offensive than using the "f" word, in my opinion.  It isnt fair to say one is offensive and one isn't.

Except one is a belief that is becoming more widespread, including, most importantly, experts on German history and the Holocaust.  I find the thought that someone could still support Bush after all he's done laughable.  He's alienated true conservatives and liberals alike.  He is a disgrace to this country and everything we used to stand for.

You know who else used a terrorist event to seize unprecedented power, stomp on civil liberties, and invade other nations?  Hitler.  Maybe the people AJF mentioned weren't so far off, huh?

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: UF Dean Expects Rankings Drop
« on: March 23, 2007, 09:39:12 PM »
;D

I love it. The letter is a bit deceiving though because he should have said that UF has been playing the U.S. News rankings like a fiddle in the past and finally got busted. I hope they fall to Tier 2.

Jesus, bitter much?  You are constantly trolling these topics... no one broke any rules, what they were doing was no different from the schools who take part-time students that they do not report.  Get a life.

no one is arguing that FIU is even close to UF or FSU Law.  my only point is that the goal is to achieve that status whether it takes 5, 10 or 20 years.  fact is that we have a solid faculty, stringent admissions standards for a new school and it only costs 8K a year to go to law school in miami.  hopefully, the rankings and accolades will follow down the road.

No, but people (FSUGeoff) are arguing that in-state, UM=FIU.  What a joke.  The truth is, the vast majority of people going to FIU are people that couldn't get into UF, FSU, Miami, and yes, even Stetson.  I try to refrain from bashing schools, but come on.  FIU UG as well respected as UF and FSU?   ::)

also, i will bet my life on it that everyone that is in the first year class of FIU also got into Nova and St. Thomas if they applied there.

This is where the FIU argument makes sense... these are the peer schools and you can certainly make a great case for FIU over either of these.  For anyone to suggest that FIU is regarded even close to the level of the big 3 (or even Stetson) is a crock.
