Transferring / Re: top 10% at T3 is what % at a T20 (GW) ? - (OCI)
« on: July 18, 2008, 07:40:32 AM »
it's impossible to say as it's 100% employer dependent. different firms are going to have different methodologies with regards to how they view transfer students.

i suggest that you take the shotgun approach with regards to your 35 (if i remember correctly) bids. i'd reserve 10 or so slots for "dream firms," and then place the remainder with a generally more accessible group of large firms. i wouldn't waste bids on small to med sized firms at this point. you can turn your attention to these firms post OCI should you wash out.

i wouldn't worry too much. i knew a t4 transfer (friend of mine) who ended up with an elite DC biglaw firm after 2L OCI. nuggets like "50-35%" are essentially hearsay with little to back them up; it's impossible to know what each firm is going to look at.

Transferring / Re: GW over Michigan??
« on: July 16, 2008, 05:40:21 PM »
step 1) go to michigan; all other considerations being equal, michigan is clearly the superior law school and is, uh, alloted the superior reputation

step 2) learn to spell "a lot" correctly sometime before entering one of the nation's most elite and storied law schools...

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: W&L or FSU - no $ either place

biglaw aspirations? w&l

It [WUSTL] also seems to have slightly better employment stats, a lower student to teacher ratio, a bigger library. But the difference is really not that substantial.

this is your conclusion re WUSTL v. DU? i think that maybe it's time that someone from the LSD advice dept receive their walking papers .. ;)

assuming that you need, as an average, traditional medical school applicant, a MCAT of 31-33 and a GPA of 3.4-3.7 to receive admission to medical school, you would, correspondingly, need at least a 160-3 LSAT and a similar GPA to obtain admission to a law school [if the genera admissions standards / criteria were to become the same].

granted, such a system would reserve law school for only those who were able to test into the top 10% or so on the LSAT, but at least, maybe to some degree, some prestige would be returned to the profession (but who really cares)

a pretty funny online rant re bar/bri questions (and bar questions generally):

"Bar humor

I just got this in an email from a dear friend who is right now in the depths of hell, aka studying for the Bar exam. If you have already taken the bar, this will bring back memories. For those of you still studying, hang in there. You WILL pass! For those of you who have not suffered through the Bar exam, find a lawyer friend and share this with them. They will laugh their butts off.

1. People who don't record their deeds:
Hey. @#!* face. That's a nice deed you got there. Went ahead andbought Stankacre, didya? That's awesome. Owning property is a signof real maturity. Now, why don't you do us all a f-ing favor, andgo record the f-ing deed.Right. f-ing. Now. Don't put it in a goddamn drawer. Don't go off to India for 20 years. Don't leave the deed in your will for dear cousin Victorianox. Get your fat lazy ass down to the records office, and record it before I burn your goddamn house down.

2: Wily property sellers:
Here is a suggestion to those Bill of Rights violatin' petty thug assclowns, the Police. How about you go down to Doucheacre, and arrest the son of a female dog who sells the same house to 15 different people, over and over. I'm sick of this guy getting away every time he pullsthis *&^%, and I'm left to sort out the f-ing pieces.

3: "Known" arsonists:
Here's a little tip to all the cretins that keep hiring "known"arsonists to burn down their cheating girlfriend's house. Why is it, do you think, that he is a known arsonist, you dipshit? He's known because he has been f-ing caught before. You don't know who the good arsonists are, do you! Because they have their *&^% together. But no, you had to go hire Dusseldorf, or Durango, or whatever D word your fuckwit moron arsonist is named, and now he's gone and burned thewrong house, and left me with a BAR question.

4: People who back out of conspiracies:
Why don't you just stick with it and save us all some trouble, you female private part.

5. Power companies that leave an electric wire live to deter copper theft:
While I appreciate your effort to rid the world of thieves stupid enough to try and steal raw copper wiring that's f-ing humming and has blue arcs dancing on it, it's just gonna bite you in the ass inthe end. Just let the copper go.

6. Fertile Octogenarians:
I think I speak for all of us when I say...
...Burn the witch!
Burn her!
And don't use a "known" arsonist!

7. People who use anything more complicated than Fee Simple Absolute in a will:
Hey, old man. Either give Horatio your f-ing interest in Scroteacre, or don't, alright? Don't condition it on him growing a mustache, or learning to play the calliope, or winning "Dancing withthe Stars." Don't grant a springing executive interest to Zenobia if she manages to graduate from Ninja academy. Stop making my life more complicated than it needs to be, you Narcissistic old twat, and stop trying to control your property fromthe grave in a vain attempt to make up for your feebleness in life.

8. House Painters:
Just paint the f-ing house yourself, Paulson.Trust me on this one. It's not worth it.

9. Bank Mortgages:
Hi there, First National Bank of South Calizonachussettsas. I don't mean to tell you how to run your business, but allow me to impart abit of sage wisdom.
When someone :
1) named Defaultina McBankrupstein,
2) is taking out her 17th mortgage with you,
3) on a place called Mushacre
4) so she can buy a new hat,
.do NOT f-ing come crying to me when the inevitable judicial foreclosure sale nets $34, a button, and some lint, all of which are devoured by the banks that are 20 miles ahead of you in creditor line. And do not ask me whether you are a junior or senior mortgagor, or whether you debt is secured, or some other bull I don'tunderstand, because the answer is always the same.
D) You are screwed. Take it like a man.

10. Wanna-be Burglars:
I am sick to death of these slackjawed melon-heads deciding at 2 a.m.that they need to borrow their neighbors wrench, and are sure he"won't mind" if they saunter on over there in the middle of the night,crowbar the garage open, smash open his tool chest, and "borrow it."And then always the inevitable f-ing:
Did he commit Larceny/Burglary/Robbery?????? Ohhhhh, no intent!

Let him go, boys. Let the man go. So I can throw the wrench right at his goddamn teeth. Good thing when we are really in practice we will have these IntentGoggles (c), that can magically tell us, despite every bit of evidenceto the contrary, this jackass really didn't intend to commit a crime.He genuinely thought that breaking into your neighbor's house,stealing his car, taking a *&^% on his pool table, and sleeping withhis wife were all part of the social covenants between good neighbors"
