RK, Did you try to negotiate for money?
I don't know very much about Chicago's international rep. I'd like to work internationally as well, but for an American firm, so I'm hoping that Chicago's name will be good enough for that. If you're looking to do international public law, I've heard that you'd probably be better off in NY or DC where you can constantly network and where there are many classes geared towards that. Of course, international public law is a really hard area to break into, so you'd still have to go to one of the top schools, probably, and take on lots of debt.
As for law and econmics, I read on xoxo, I think, that you don't need to have an economics backround. It's just a perspective on law where you look at issues from "what's the most efficient" standpoint.
Sordomudo- I think this summer I'm going to find an apartment, go out with my friends, get into good shape and read books that I've been meaning to get to. Might as well have fun while I still can.
What I'm worried about for Chicago is that I'll work really hard and still end up a below the median student. I mean, any kid at the median can get a 125k job, but what happens to the bottem 10%. I'm not planning to be there, of course, but at a school where almost everyone is really smart and works very hard, someone has to get the Cs that balance out the As.
